The pigeon has landed! STAPLE and RefrigiWear announced the launch of a global collaboration designed to help STAPLE fans experience winter on a whole new level with RefrigiWear, the company that invented the original industrial freezer suit.
The STAPLE X RefrigiWear collaboration includes a range of casual outerwear: a bubble jacket, a down jacket, a hoodie, a sweater, two t-shirts and a beanie. Each unique piece was designed with RefrigiWear’s signature practicality and STAPLE’s unmistakable style.
“STAPLE launches dozens of creative collaborations each year, so they’re always on the hunt for like-minded creators. RefrigiWear’s meticulous attention to functionality and detail drew the two brands together and the idea for a capsule collaboration was hatched in Rome, Italy,” explains RefrigiWear Co-CEO Ryan Silberman.
After a look through archived photos of classic RefrigiWear garments, Jeff and the STAPLE team decided to update the classic vertical-quilted down jacket with bright colors. The redesign embraced the iconic style of RefrigiWear’s heritage by retaining the fleece-lined hood and multiple pockets but added a splash of color with a camo print.
STAPLE also created a coop-quilted bubble jacket with sleek European styling and a pigeon-themed photo detail in a lining that’s both soft and warm. While the jackets are bold, other pieces in the capsule, such as the hoodie and t-shirt, are accessible for casual wear with their clean lines and simple logo prints.
