For spring and summer, we added three new colors in addition to the classic indigo blue and caviar black for both men and women. The choice of color is no coincidence, I had a chat with our design team to learn more. Rather than following trends we create mood boards every season to make sure that all colors are complementary and work well together with our established color strategy for the different concepts. The choice of color should be timeless yet visible.
For SS20 we got inspired by the transitions nature goes through from fall and winter to spring and summer. The new colors for men are inspired by the blue skies and the depth and warmth of the midnight sun. As we transition to spring and summer flowers start to blossom and this season we took a leap of faith and went softer than ever before for the women.
Last year we took 8 lucky Loyalty members on an Anniversary Crossing across Jotunheimen, testing the Gore-Tex Jacket and the rest of the falketind collection. I found four of the participants and here’s what they had to say:
“The Gore-Tex Jacket kept me dry and therefore very comfortable during the Anniversary Crossing. We experienced all types of weather during the adventure in Jotunheimen but the wind and rain would have been a lot harder to tackle if it hadn’t been for this my Falketind Gore-Tex jacket!”
“The falketind Gore-Tex jacket was for sure put to test on the first day of the anniversary crossing. Some showers, wind and chilly at altitude. On the second day it was mandatory with the heavy rain. The feeling of having a shell that keeps you dry is priceless. Details like armpit vents, and one-hand hood adjustment keeps venting and adjusting easy!”
I’m a big fan of the falketind collection because of the fit, the fresh colors, and functionality.
This jacket, the falketind gore-tex jacket, has a short fit and features including long underarm vents, a weather protective hood suitable for the helmet and asymmetric cuffs for better weather protection.
“A very versatile jacket. The color is great and natural. Not too strong and artificial, but still visible in the mountains – which is important for mountain safety. Technical solutions are simple and strong. The mobility and ventilation is good. I tested the jacket in Norway’s most alpine mountains, and it kept me dry and warm.”
