Just landed into store are the first pieces from our Norbit by Hiroshi Nozawa winter selection. Built for a modern urban/outdoor lifestyle Hiroshi Nozawa crafts some of the most sublime outdoor focussed clothing we've ever had our hands on.
If you've not been fortunate enough to have your hands on some of his product then it's honestly hard to understand how good this is. Without sounding too pretentious it borders on art. But that's the point for Hiroshi Nizowa. He's clearly more artist than pure designer and as such pours himself whole heartedly into the products he produces.
Norbit by Hiroshi Nozawa is built on the three fundamental pillars of technology, design and materials and with this in mind Hiroshi Nozawa produces clothing that not only looks amazing but is highly functional and remarkable to wear as the first products in our winter selection are testament to.
The Field down short jacket has large military style pockets and a unique detachable hood system with a built in hat style brim. It's unlike anything else on the market and the finest Hungarian goose down ensures you stay toasty warm too.
The same Hungarian goose down can be found across all of the down products in our selection from Norbit along with the highest quality fabrics and fasteners.
The Bush Down Anorak is a classic Norbit piece and the graduated diamond baffles are a thing of beauty, starting out smaller at the shoulders and getting larger towards the hem they help create the feeling of volume and shape in the garment whilst at the same time holding more down around the middle of the body where its needed most.
If you're looking for warmth but want something you can layer over then the Short Sleeve Down Shirt with its unique hidden ventilation zips and salt treated nylon outer is a versatile piece as a mid or outer layer.
Finally, for those (like us) with Star Wars fantasies still to play out the Field Down Pants bring a level of style not seen since Luke & Han rode Tauntauns across an arctic Hoth tundra. If these don't get you excited then I honestly don't know what will.
All of the Norbit Winter Selection is available online now and will be in our new showroom from Saturday 5th December. If you're in Manchester come and see what we're banging on about.
