Earlier this year, designer Todd Snyder and the industry-leading technical outfit, Descente Allterrain, announced their intent to work alongside one another for a genre-defining outerwear collection. Today, that collection has officially been released — an assortment of unique patterns, textures, fabrics, and styles administered to exhibit the brands’ fashionable, but rugged principles.
This multi-piece collaboration boasts an interesting integration of Descente’s SYNCHKNIT and ALLTERRAIN lines, while maintaining all of the informed cuts, fits, and tailored traits that have become synonymous with the New York-based menswear designer, Todd Snyder. Two Synchknit jackets arrive in an attractive Chalk Stripe and Glen Plaid colorway, accompanied by a set of similarly-hued, leg-worn garments. Each tailored piece has been crafted to Descente’s exacting standards and boasts a comfortable four-way stretch technology, water-repellent surface, and air-permeable Schematech design. But the collection’s most appealing pieces, the Mizusawa Down Jacket and Bal Collar Coat, steal the show. These high-spec offerings boast technical materials like moisture-permeable Dermizax and polyester, as well as waterproof, windproof characteristics that make them attractive peripherals for any cold-weather environment. Head to Descente’s website to get a closer look at the Performance Collection, which starts at $320.
