PARAJUMPERS, the brand best known for powerful pieces and practicality, this season delivers something deeper, a collection for the commanding, designed for individuals who demand change and work to solve societal issues that dominate our generation.
Evolving with the era, the label’s latest line doubles down on sustainability, scrapping fur and making more than 20% of this season’s garms with recycled fabrics. Upgrading to a more timeless stance in terms of design, we see PARAJUMPERS’ well-known quality, visual appeal, and unique innovation enter a new phase.
This environmental advance isn’t the only factor propelling PARAJUMPERS into the future. Joining other brands on a mission to dismantle typical gender boundaries within fashion, unisex styles are built into the collection through oversized silhouettes and avant-garde design.
Introducing a space-age aesthetic with the ‘Puffers’ category, the POWDER and aptly-named LUNAR JACKET feature alongside modern silhouettes and cosmic colour palettes. Black mesh is melded with gritty materials to manufacture a futuristic feel to the collection. Welcoming the JUMPSUIT family for FW22, one of the more advanced pieces to pull the high-tech perception together comes in the form of a pilot-style suit, crafted from a combination of fabrics adding to the modernised feel.
Juxtaposing this, long-term PARAJUMPERS’ fans might recognise the return of previously released pieces within the MASTER CORE series, reworked to tune into contemporary trends. Not only is this reflective of the brand’s roots, but it also offers a nod of nostalgia to their day-one wearers.
Moving us into a new eon of outerwear, reversible jackets are reinvented with silk-screen printed patterns appearing on the underside of garments. The brand’s NEW NATURE series ushers in a much-needed remix on mid-season attire with the added bonus of 100% biodegradable fabrics.
Uniting the more adventurous side of PARAJUMPERS with its urban reps, the UNITY SONG and SKYLINE parkers bring an element of city culture to the collection. Typical outwear is transformed into casualwear, complemented by the latest array of diversified accessories. Baseball caps born from the POWER series and fun, padded pieces from the PUFFER BAGS family fuse, moving the brand to the forefront of must-have FW22 releases.
Combine PARAJUMPERS’ cool character and contemporary creativity, and you’ll come to realise why they’ve become such a player in the streetwear realm. If you’re yet to lay eyes on the collection, you can check it out below.
