Gramicci Experiments With Functional Materials For FW20

Continuing in the same vein as its hi-tech Spring/Summer 2020 offering, Japanese label Gramicci has unveiled its Fall/Winter 2020 performance collection; an ensemble of forward-thinking, functional garments designed for the outdoors.

Comprising jackets, jumpers, fleeces and pants — as well as an array of accessories — FW20 is more of what we’ve come to expect from the brand. Renowned for its use of practical materials, the collection spanns Cordura fabrics, RENU polyester, three-layer waterproofs and double-woven nylons.

Stand-out pieces include the Cordura Rip Foody jacket that comes in a lightweight material, yet is highly durable against tearing friction and abrasion. Arriving in a relaxed silhouette, the jacket’s batting utilises RENU polyester raw material, which is not only soft, but retains heat too.

A quarter-knit hoodie has been crafted using false twisted yarn with a unique bulging feeling and is woven with a low gauge on the front and a high gauge on the rear. Although it is soft like a sweater, it is also water repellent, so can be worn outdoors too. Completing the collection is a selection of three-layer technical pants, windproof fleece switch pants and accessories, all designed with functionality in mind.1 of 7

Alongside the performance release, Gramicci has also launched its classic collection. Utilising similar materials to the aforementioned, this more everyday offering features a wider array of outerwear and technical pieces, as well as a selection of packable garments in the form of shorts and backpacks.

Both of the FW20 Gramicci collections are available now via the Gramicci Japan webstore.
