The rising creative has always embraced a weather-centric design language, making a name for himself through Inuit-style garments made to withstand extreme temperature changes. The Central Saint Martins graduate and LVMH Prize finalist is a perfect match for 66°North, merging their aesthetics to create resistant attire for Icelandic landscapes.
Constantinou takes a deep dive into the expansive 66°North archive, scavenging its 90-year history for inspiration. Tech-forward outerwear and knitwear make up the offering, delivering an enduring range to withstand uneasy natural circumstances.
Produced in Latvia, the collection is crafted from discarded materials left behind at 66°North factories. Protective coats are made from 3M water-resistant textiles, featuring blended purple, brown, and green hues, extended side pockets, and removable hoods. Rubberized dual logos reside on the chest, while coordinating bottoms don cargo-style pockets and removable legs for diverse use. Finally, hooded knitwear is designed with Iceland’s trademark lopapeysa pattern, featuring incorporated face masks for protection against strong winds.
