Japanese label Snow Peak has unveiled its Spring/Summer 2022 collection, exploring the crossover of city and country living. All of the pieces in its seasonal apparel collection are designed for both environments, with a focus on lightweight technicality to offer protection on warm summer nights.
Showcasing the collection’s influence, Snow Peak has partnered with mandarin orange farmer and keen skateboarder Yuichiro Wakamatsu for the lookbook. Yuichiro works as a mandarin farmer in Uwajima, where he has constructed a skate ramp for friends and locals to enjoy. Speaking about his project, Yuichiro said, “I wanted to create a place where these friends could stay in Uwajima and enjoy nature, harvest mandarin oranges and enjoy skating while communicating with local people.”
The collection itself has a strong technical influence, with highlights including packable rainwear constructed from 100% recycled polyester, Quick Dry items and a new Insect Shield line that features mesh inserts to provide protection from pests. Elsewhere, SS22 sees the return of the takibi line — with ripstop shirts, pullovers and overalls — and a range of relaxed fit Light Mountain Cloth garments that mix natural colorways with pops of mandarin orange.
The SS22 collection from Snow Peak is available now via the brand’s web store.
