Following on from the official launch party at the Norse Store Women flagship store and after showing at Copenhagen Fashion Week, Norse Projects x Gore-Tex for AW18 has arrived at The Hip Store. The styles featured in this collection are the Thor Jacket and the Rokkvi 4.0 Jacket that include Gore-Tex construction. The idea behind this collaboration is to offer contemporary design in a garment that is versatile and covers both functional and social needs. Norse Projects x Gore-Tex can endure all the elements.

The latest version of Norse Projects’ classic Rokkvi parka has been developed in collaboration with Gore-Tex. This jacket features a Gore-Tex membrane that is bonded to a lightweight outer fabric and finished with a ‘Durable Water Repellent’ coating. The lightweight and waterproof outer is constructed using fully waterproof seam finishing with a fixed lining insulated with 90/10 EU Standard Certified Goose Down. This highly-breathable jacket features raglan sleeves for improved movability, a large hood, a full-length zip placket with an added storm flap and internal pockets that are designed for storage and quick everyday access. To ensure animal welfare, Norse Projects demands that all its down suppliers comply with RDS (Responsible Down Standard) certification.

The Thor jacket is a core Norse Projects line that has been updated with Gore-Tex technology. This version of Norse Projects’ Thor jacket features an insulated mid-layer making it a versatile all-season jacket. This coat has been made with a Gore-Tex membrane bonded to a nylon outer fabric and has been finished with a ‘Durable Water Repellent’ coating. Internally the membrane is protected by a thin carbon layer making it windproof, durably waterproof and breathable. Additional features include a turn-down collar, a full-length snap button placket with storm flap, two front pockets, fully-waterproof seam finishing, 700 fill power goose down (90% down, 10% feather) and a USA Standard Down Fill that complies with RDS (Responsible Down Standard).

Norse Projects x Gore-Tex for AW18 is available in Leeds and online now.

adidas SPEZIAL AW18

adidas SPEZIAL returns for an AW18 outing as it continues to tell the story of Acid House from the summer season as the ‘Second Summer of Love’ celebrates its 30th anniversary.

adidas SPEZIAL returns for an AW18 outing as it continues to tell the story of Acid House from the summer season as the ‘Second Summer of Love’ celebrates its 30th anniversary. The story focuses on the cultural phenomenon of warehouse parties, that first ‘Acid Winter’ and how the legacy of those first-generation ravers continue to endure through the energy of 21st century sound systems. adidas SPEZIAL again paints a picture of how fashion and music has had a lasting global influence and how adidas was a key element within it. Building upon the SS18 content, the AW18 collection reflects how the energy of outdoor raves in the Summer of Love were transplanted into the underground of the warehouse parties as Acid House made its way to inner cities and took on a new look, a new ethos and a new audience.

Starting with the apparel there is a bold, colourful and winterised offering featuring a strong-looking series of outerwear, graphic t-shirts, a matching tracksuit, winter-ready headwear and the Mod Trefoil sweatshirt returns in a seasonal colourway. With the change in weather the direction naturally turns to coats as a reversible puffer, the archive-inspired Loton jacket, the lightweight and packable Aigburth jacket and the Beckenbauer-esque Harpurhey track top arrives in-line with the temperature dipping.

The footwear styles are always a highly-anticipated subject around adidas SPEZIAL and this A/W it’s no exception with a vibrant and colourful selection of trainers. Technical runners have always played a huge part and will always be associated with dance music so naturally retro runners feature within this collection.

The Lowertree SPZL is a brand-new hybrid with roots in the iconic Marathon Competition whilst the ZX452 SPZL is based around a shoe that was originally designed with a feminine aesthetic but was adopted by men due to the striking pastel colours; it’s been updated and revised for the current day. The Munchen SPZL arrives in a classic 80s Gazelle colourway of lime green and is partnered with a classic adidas collegiate blue colourway. The popular Mallison SPZL returns alongside an Indoor Comp SPZL, inspired by the archive Indoor Star with an 80s adidas colourway that was used across several styles including the now-iconic Lendl series. The Wilsy SPZL is a like-for-like reissue of the sought-after Universal Indoor silhouette and the Punstock SPZL is the latest ‘leisure’ shoe that has roots in the adidas Freizeit range and adds further depth to the variety of styles on offer.
