Descente ALLTERRAIN turns 10 this year, and in celebration of its decade of outerwear, the Japanese label has produced a knock-out Fall/Winter 2022 collection centered around the silhouettes and technologies that have shaped the brand’s identity.
Signatures such as the Mizusawa Down Jacket appear in a new “Burnt Orange” colorway, injecting a pop of fun into the otherwise strictly-business garment. Known for its waterproof qualities that come as a result of seam taping and the brand’s proprietary Parahood system that keeps the elements from gathering inside the jacket’s hood and shell, we now find it standing out among Descente ALLTERRAIN’s more subdued offerings.
But in true style, Descente ALLTERRAIN also presents equally-padded jackets in black that sport a new geometric graphic design all over them, or other heavy-duty technical layers that come equipped with exposed taped seams and plenty of zippers for a more tactile aesthetic.
Shell jackets come in for the collection’s lightweight offering, while FUSIONKNIT styles also make a comeback for something that can be used day-to-day. Rounding out the FW22 collection are shackets complete with poppers running down the middle, looking perfectly paired alongside the brand’s technical pants for something that can be worn for an office stint at five and a mountain climb or urban exploration at six.
Technical insights are littered throughout the collection, with plenty of pieces working in GORE-TEX, ripstop, HEAT NAVI warmth generation, dual-zip ventilation, and much more. Take a look at the collection above and expect it to land in stockists and online in late September.
