Canadian luxury outerwear brand Moose Knuckles releases its second capsule collection with American fashion label Eckhaus Latta, co-founded by Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta. Expanding their collaborative partnership that debuted earlier this year, the brands present a Fall/Winter collection that combines Eckhaus Latta’s sought-after designs with Moose Knuckles’ skillful craftsmanship and engineering, elevating the standard of technical performance design.
“We are thrilled to continue our collaboration with Mike and Zoe – true visionaries who inspire us with their craft, innovation, dynamic personalities, and respect for the community. We share their ethos, as bold cultural design innovators that strive to push forward fearless yet functionable fashion. Together, we reimagined our classic, iconic Moose Knuckles styles in new and inspiring ways, using techniques we haven’t used before. They’ve really helped us further our artistic and technical exploration in design.” -Ayal Twik, Chief Marketing Officer, Moose Knuckles
This latest Moose Knuckles x Eckhaus Latta capsule collection features 12 pieces, consisting of 8 styles that include the core Icon Jacket, Icon Parka, Bunny Hoodie, Puffer Vest and Jacket, and Parka Puffer, along with lightweight quilted Vest and matching Pant. The collection is offered in a refined neutral palette of Egret White, Coconut Milk and Beluga Black. For the first time, the bestselling Bunny is trimmed with genuine Tigrado shearling, while the Icon Jacket is trimmed with the same shearling, adding a luxuriously dramatic appearance to these Moose Knuckles mainstays.
Each of the Moose Knuckles Iconic outerwear silhouettes were reinterpreted through the Eckhaus Latta lens to offer a more contemporary feel, with oversized, exaggerated proportions.
Moose Knuckles’ expertise in craftsmanship and technical engineering is especially evident in the collection’s puffers. Designed in a hyper-light form for effortless mobility in colder months, they’re filled with supremely warm RDS certified down and offered in a neutral mélange tone or classic black.
Additionally, the Fall/Winter 2022 Moose Knuckles x Eckhaus Latta collection offers a quilted nylon vest and matching pant as multifunctional separates that can be worn layered with other pieces.
“For our first collaboration with Moose Knuckles, we really enjoyed experimenting creatively in the realm of technical performance. Our second collaboration distorts and reimagines outerwear and separates this time to protect you from inclement weather, whether in the city or away.” – Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta, Eckhaus Latta
