Colmar AW22 | Back To University

If you’re looking to step into a world of freshers parties, late nights, and cheap beer, let us put you on to the Italian luxury outwear brand Colmar

Their latest collection, ‘Back To University’, unites the classic aesthetic of British and American college athletic teams. Whether you’re one for school spirit or not, their reimagined varsity-esque jackets are ready to take you on a nostalgic journey this Autumn/Winter.

The capsule, consisting of coats, hoodies, trousers and t-shirts, will make for an easy spot on the streets this season. Following the brand’s usual visuals of vivid shades and vibrant accessories, the colour-tinged collection also injects more tonal additions. Minimalists, you can look forward to crisp whites and notes of navy within this versatile palette.

Uniting streetwear silhouettes with colour-blocked sleeves and bodices, typical school-sports attire is regenerated, moving it away from the football field and making room for everyday wear. One of the more standout styles from this collection is the fusion of our Fall/Winter favourite, the puffer, with this season’s front runner, the varsity jacket. Colmar’s reinvention of traditional outwear is the unique take our closets have been crying for and just in time for cooler weather.

Tuning into the brand’s explorative roots and rich association with ski and winter sports, graphic patches are littered across the line. In an unexpected amalgamation of worlds, this addition has hit the spot for streetwear fans, hopping on more illustrative styles this past year, creating an unexpected movement for Colmar from the slopes to the streets.

Attention-grabbing accents aren’t the only thing bringing buzz to the ‘Back To University’ collection. Constructing this season’s jackets from the same fabrics used for high-altitude sleeping bags, Colmar’s exclusively developed materials and use of more sustainable yarn have taken a front seat.
