The best way to describe FOUR(4)ABLE Collection of outerwear from FUTURA LABORATORIES (FL) x DESCENTE is that it transform, quite literally. Since its introduction 2 years ago, the collection been well-received by avid outdoor enthusiasts to everyday urbanites. All appreciate the fact that outerwear is so versatile, with the ability to meet almost every conditions, even those unexpected ones. Constructed around 4 guiding principles, or in this case, 4 “ables”: Detachable, Packable, Comfortable, & Imaginable. Each is apparent in the design.
- Detachable – The versatile outerwear comes with detachable sleeves, a seamless transformation into a light weight vest.
- Packable – By folding the jacket into one of its sleeves, it becomes a tubular-shape pack
- Comfortable – The shell is a waterproof yet breathable membrane. An additional inner hood to provide insulated coverage around the head
- Imaginable – A specially designed graphic by FUTURA, features his “atomic” tag and Pointman character, all superimposed on a digitally printed, dot camouflage.
For Fall 2009, the duo will introduce a range of patterns and graphics. Similar to the Spring/Summer 2009 Collection, the new season will focus on traditional patterns, including Glen Plaid. The printed graphics are then intersected with FUTURA’s signature caricature, Pointman, throughout the jacket’s front. Available in 2 colorways of purple or black, the FUTURA LABORATORIES x DESCENTE – FOUR(4)ABLE Mountain Parka Jacket in Pointman Glen Plaid is available at selected FL retailers and STLESS on ZOZOTOWN shopping network.
