Conceived as a hyper-modern label focussed on experimentation and product innovation, Colmar Advanced Garment Exploration (A.G.E.) is Italian luxury outerwear brand Colmar's latest project. Seeking to reinterpret its heritage pieces through the lens of modern luxury fashion, Colmar has brought in Hood by Air founder Shayne Oliver as the project’s inaugural collaborator. Colmar has brought innovation to alpine gear for over ninety years; this wealth of technological innovation and history offers a unique platform for Oliver to break new ground in the realm of men’s outdoor performance wear. Under Oliver’s creative direction, the menswear diffusion line subverts expectations through various methods of transformation and exaggeration, classic outerwear silhouettes receive imaginative updates to defy expectations. Rich colorways harmonize with polished detailing to produce highly covetable signature pieces that are equal parts functional and stylish. While traditional modes of design are challenged by the Hood By Air founder's progressive alignment, inventive constructions culminate in garments that prove adaptable enough to master any alpine environment.
