In recent years, the fashion zeitgeist has undergone a seismic shift, with the collective consciousness moving towards more technically-minded, outdoor-focused apparel. Brands that were once favourites amongst enthusiasts only have spilled over into ubiquity, now becoming fashion mainstays, dominating mood boards, collections and runways across the globe.

With “Focus On: Outerwear”, END. shines a spotlight on the brands at the vanguard of this outerwear fever, as well as tracing the connection between these labels and the more luxury-leaning brands adopting technical elements.
