We’re introducing you to the latest brand to join the Urban Industry repertoire, Wild Things. A rich history with pioneering designs created by founders Marie Meunier and John Bouchard, who’s background is in Mountaineering, and originally developing garments that gained the interest of the US Special Forces, check out the full collection here.
Established in 1981 with the motto ‘Lightest is rightest’, the Japanese brand aims to deliver innovative, lightweight pieces designed to withstand high-altitudes and extreme conditions, without compromising on contemporary style and consistently producing on-trend garments.
This Spring and Summer’s collection brings versatile pieces that function brilliantly in both an outdoors and city environment. In this article we’ve highlighted the Light Monster Parka - put to the test in the turbulent March weather by a local trail on the South Coast. A favourite style with the Urban Industry team thanks to its ability to perform in all weather conditions, it’s insulated, water-repellent, and extremely light construction can battle the drizzling rain and harsh winds.
One thing to note with the Wild Things Collection is they are sized to be 'Over-sized'. Our guy here is wearing a Large but he could easily wear a medium. This is Wild Thing's style, go down one size from your normal sizings if you prefer things less over sized.
Layered underneath the Light Monster Parka is the Denali Shirt in Olive, just one excellent example from the range of shirts in the collection. Stylised yet practical, this shirt offers a flattering fit, sleek design and optimal comfort.
