Element x Timber! Spring 2015 Capsule Collection
A bicycle inspired capsule collection in collaboration with Element advocate TIMBER!
Element is proud to introduce the Element x TIMBER! Collection, inspired by recreational biking: The second capsule collection with Element advocate, Chad Eaton aka TIMBER!, this collection presents a combination of lifestyle classics with vintage bike inspiration and a touch of modern functionality.
The collection was created around the idea and under Element's motto “Keep discovering” - while traveling across countries on a bike. It is a lifestyle collection that includes technical and functional features for biking like reflective labels and trims. Highlights are for instance the “Tourer”, a cone mills selvedge mechanical flex denim, made in USA, with reflective print at the cuff.
Also, the denim jacket “Porteur” provides some special features that combine a lifestyle product with functionality for bicycling. Reflective details make sure to be seen at night while biking and it also features a longer back fit and shoulder gussets which provide more comfort.
Another key item and one of the more functional products is the shell jacket “ Randonneur”, a 2.5 layer shell jacket, waterproof with great breathability, reflective 3M trims, and compactable into its own custom pouch.
Since Element advocate TIMBER! is also a passionate bicyclist, it was just a matter of time Element came up with a special capsule collection around the bicycle theme. Besides the lifestyle products and appropriate accessories, this line also includes a number of TIMBER! advocate tees made of organic cotton, all featuring his artworks, which are all inspired by bicycling of course.
