Creativity and movement are the founding concepts of the entire collection which revisits workwear with modern silhouettes and bright colours.

Designed for cold climates, this collection includes a full lineup of performance-inspired gear needed to brave the long, harsh Midwest winters. In line with the same concept of winter travel that underpins the collection, many items also feature a quilted pattern inspired by the design of the duvet.”
