UPDATE: For his second collaboration with the Swoosh, Matthew Williams is seeking inspiration in nature and technology. ”For this collection, we used computational algorithms to create the camouflage pattern,” Williams explained, adding that the pattern is traditionally derived from nature and “reveals things that are normally unseen.”
Featuring a range of multi-functional pieces featuring Sherpa fleece, two-in-one pants, utility vests and detachable hoods, the collection is set to retail between approximately $25 USD and $460 USD. Take a look at the pieces in the gallery below, and shop the collection as it becomes available on February 7.
