Mt. Rainier Design return for SS14 with more expertly-crafted outdoor apparel based on classic North American designs from the 60s,70s and 80s, updating traditional outdoor silhouettes with a selection of technical materials and contemporary detailing.
A Rainer staple, 60/40 blend canvas has been a go-to fabric for outdoor design for decades and has continued to be used in a variety of highly creative guises to this day. SS14 sees Mt. Rainier construct a new harrington style hybrid design utilising this tried and tested material, alongside using it across a selection of top quality accessories.
This technical approach to fabric has yielded a variety of fascinating pieces from Mt. Rainier season after season and SS14 is no different, with both technical waxed fabric and highly resistant Windshed nylon poplin used for the Hunting jackets and Top Coat respectively.
Inspired by archive mountaineering equipment, the Narrow Climbing Pant and Camo Wax Zip Pocket Climbing short are constructed with a technical gusset in order to allow free movement and are kitted out with an in built webbing belt.
Online now, head over to the Mt. Rainier Design Section to take a look at the latest from this heritage outdoor brand.
