South Korean label Lost Management Cities has debuted its very first Active Gear collection for Spring/Summer 2022, a sportswear line focused on outdoor utility while maintaining the brand’s signature modern look.
The SS22 lookbook takes us on a rocky hike through the mountains in which LMC‘s new windproof shell jackets, climber shorts, and aerocool tees are put to use. Jersey tees and windbreakers feature Coolon technology, maintaining wearability during temperature shifts, and a range of therm-o-compass colorways are available as easy clip-on pieces. Also highlighted are outwear pieces and headwear, including 6-panel caps and bucket hats lined in a special 3-Layer W-Proof material for all-weather performance. Rounding out the assortment are a number of carrying options ranging from large camping bags to multi-pocket waist packs.
While the Active Gear series focuses on outdoor use, the sleek and minimalist forms allow for a smooth transition back to the city. Similar to collections from traditional outdoor brands such as Arc’Teryx and The North Face, this series will likely find its way into the urban sprawl.
LMC’s Active Gear collection is now available on the LAYER. website and select stockists.
