Founded back in 2006 by former Junya Watanabe assistant Yosuke Aizawa, White Mountaineering create some of the finest outdoor apparel available, built around the concept of ‘design, utility, technology and function’.

The Spring Summer ’12 collection centres around a number of heritage fabrics, including 5oz Japanese chambray, premium patterned cotton, knitted fair isle and a Custom flower camo. The Japanese brand then transform these archive materials, using them as a foundation in the construction of functional, performance garments, utilising innovative waterproofing and moisture wicking treatments such as Pertex and eVent to add unprecedented functionality. The collection also combines these modern technologies with traditional waterproofing and strengthening methods, including leather panels at the shoulders and rear yoke as well as by applying wax coatings over lightweight herringbones and twills.

As ever White Mountaineering have managed to effortlessly combine heritage design, inspired by their Japanese roots, with technology taken from the fore-front of clothing design. The result is an exceptional collection that showcases the unique and forward-thinking approach to clothing design that Yosuke Aizawa has become renowned for.
