The pressure in urban life causes people to escape to another world. Just take your clothes and bag, which are enough. For outdoor sports, the functional qualities of outdoor and commuting garments are underlined to ensure diversity. Craft details are underscored. Functional elements work best to expand sporty items.
In line with the thematic trend of Landscape Protection, the distressed designs resurge. Washes and sand wash create a variety of colors. Dyeing and printing help create the variegated and distressed effect.
The protective quality is crucial for the outdoor sporty items. The hood drawstring is protective and provides extra warmth.
The heightened and tightened designs, buckles, layered fabrics and all-in-one shape are functional and decorative, working better in the youth market.
The pressed film at the all-in-one zippers and the zipper cap can enhance the waterproof quality. Tonal or contrasting colors add a fashionable and functional twist.
Chest pockets from tunics provide must-have elements to the outdoor apparel. The positions of pockets can be adjusted according to different occasions. There are two kinds – patch pocket and insert pocket. Inner pockets can also be applied to provide extra convenience.
A layer of bright bias-cut woven fabric or PVC on the seams can offer the waterproof quality and a bold contrasting visual.
Taping works best for extreme conditions. This technique is mainly used for splicing on apparel to create the flawless and functional look.
The all-in-one designs consisting of the jacket and backpack are seen at The North Face, Meanswhile and Undercover. The yoke at the back, tapes, buckles and two-layer zipper add the adjusting function.
