After the success of The Open One, crowdfunded back in 2016, we received a lot of requests to create more products. To create the best possible result, we decided to work together on the design with the teams of Tara Latham from Sugarhouse Creative and Sophie Poelman from Studioalida.
They used their technical work experience from companies like Arc’teryx, Black Diamond and Salewa to help us create this top-level product.
As the functionality is key, we first focused on the fit of our products. Together with pattern maker Tytti Torpala, we worked on an engineered fit, allowing for optimal movability on the mountain, both up- and downhill.
In the meanwhile, the designers worked out the overall clean, minimal look and technical details, before we handed the designs over to Maxport Ltd. A factory that produces the highest level outerwear.
The Maxport Ltd. team helped us to overcome technical challenges, like the flap construction on our pocket zippers. With their expertise, they created these outstanding, even award-winning, new products.
