Engineered Garments x Nanga
Engineered Garments and Nanga unveil their second collaboration, introducing a new collection of down items.
The Engineered Garments x Nanga capsule collection, features the Zip Jacket, Wrap Vest, Button Shawl, and Down Pants, centers on this concept, challenging wearers to explore fresh, original modes of self-expression through their attire. This collection embraces the Japanese concept of "kufū" (工夫). While "kufū" lacks a direct English equivalent, it essentially translates to a thoughtful approach to finding originality.
The Zip Jacket features Aurora Light, Nanga's most advanced material, known for its lightweight, waterproof, and breathable attributes. The jacket contains UDD down feathers from European White Ducks (DX), treated with an advanced water-repellent treatment for 770 fill power. The Zip Jacket is equipped with four sets of waterproof zippers, granting access to two front pockets, as well as neck, armpit, and rear ventilation systems, for a myriad of styling possibilities.
The Airborne Down Pant takes inspiration from a military-inspired silhouette designed for the Fall Winter 2023 season. In addition to the UDD down filling, the pant's outer layer consists of a polyester aramid ripstop, providing warmth and flame resistance, well-suited to chilly evenings around the campfire.
The collection's highlights - the Button Shawl and Wrap Vest - are unconventional items that encapsulate the core vision of Nepenthes. The Button Shawl, with its symmetrical front zippers and cape-like silhouette grants originality to any outfit. The Wrap Knit Vest can fit snugly beneath a jacket or elegantly over a sweater.
Manufactured in Japan, Nanga's unwavering commitment to craftsmanship ensures that these items deliver maximum functionality, while Daiki's distinct vision infuses the collection with ingenuity. These products encourage wearers to delve into their creative potential.
