Colmar | Autumn Is Calling

Calling all gorpcore fans, for those of you looking to add a fresh dose of utilitarian gear to your fall wardrobe, we’ve got you covered. Colmar just dropped their aptly named ‘Autumn Is Calling’ collection, and if you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, we’ve got everything you need to know about the launch below. 

For those of you wondering what sets Colmar apart from other outdoor-inspired labels, you only need to take a quick look at their history. Unlike many of the mainstream brands capitalising off the gorpcore hype currently circulating the streetwear community, Colmar’s roots are rich with adventure, adorning skiers since 1923 and providing functional fits built for performance. Now, Colmar can be traced back to the birth of camping chic and brings the added bonus of being a cult brand.

Aligning with traditional techwear techniques, this collection comes in two opposing shade categories, earthy autumnal tones and contrasting retro-esque colours. Giving us a nod to nature, navy, muted brown, and khaki combine to create the enduring aesthetic we’ve come to expect from Colmar.

Offering up their latest instalment of down jackets with ‘Autumn Is Calling’, this season’s collection of biker, gilet, and field jackets team up with fixed hoods and lightweight fabrics to form an exciting line-up of garms set to give our layering game an edge this autumn winter. If you happen to have a Colmar classic already in your closet, you’ll know just how timeless these jackets are.

Once again demonstrating the versatility of their drip, fleece fabrics and water-repellent patches unite on a utility jacket and straight-leg cuffed cargos. Keeping up with the streetwear trends of 2022 and creating styles that can be worn in casual or camping settings, ‘Autumn Is Calling’ allows the normcore aesthetic to take centre stage, so you’ll no doubt you’ll spot this collection on your local sidewalk or being repped by an urban explorer on their way to an underground rave.

Comfort doesn’t go a miss either, with wools working their way into the garms. Combine this with the checked skirt, camo print trousers and hoodie stamped with Colmar’s classic red logo on offer and you’ll be ready to give hypebeasts everywhere a run for their money.

If you’re wanting to add some ‘Autumn Is Calling’ pieces to your wardrobe, you can shop the collection exclusively on the Colmar website.
