Billed as an experimental platform seated at the intersection of design, innovation and art, Goldwin 0 seeks to foster a harmonious relationship between fashion and nature via its debut Autumn/Winter 2022 collection.
Working in collaboration with the Goldwin Team in Japan, lead designers Julia Rodowicz and Jean-Luc Ambridge have served up a line defined by utilitarian style codes and a penchant for sustainability. Among the range, a functional shell jacket, composed of recycled “Gore-Tex Product,” speaks to Goldwin’s legacy in ski wear, and ski pants, constructed with the same fabric, boast ventilation zippers for body temperature regulation. Another standout is the label’s packable parka, crafted to hold a bicycle helmet or backpack with pragmatic back zippers through an ultrasonic crimping process.
Elsewhere, the collection employs its fair share of knitwear, replicating signature Goldwin ski sweater patterns from the ’60s and ’70s on modern Fair Isle silhouettes. Several ensembles are composed of Spiber’s Brewed Protein fabric, which produces a fleece-like texture intended for post-workout relaxation wear, while others, including an optical knit top and pants, opt for recycled polyester. Notably, the brand is able to reduce waste by 3D-printing its knitwear in one connected shape with Japanese WHOLEGARMENT technology.
Goldwin 0’s debut collection will release this October. Indulge in the lookbook above.
