TATRAS x RIOT HILL AW2020 Runway Collection set to clash quality with contemporary culture.
Held in Palais de Tokyo Paris, TATRAS revealed its new AW2020 collection in collaboration with RIOT HILL. RIOT HILL’s labels founder and designer Jordan Fresher lends his artistic vision to Tatras's technical innovation.
Fresher draws design cues from Swiss military uniforms and modern Japanese architecture with the intent to produce a functional collection of industrial and utilitarian inspired items including Goose down jackets, US and Japanese Air Force Vests, Flight bomber jackets, Raw Japanese denim sets, Work-wear cargo pants and oversized ski jackets made with Italian cordura just to name a few.
Founded in 2006 By Masanaka Sakao - TATRAS first established awareness by proposing a new idea of modern luxury in the international market with a core focus on their now signature high end down jacket. According to Masanaka Sakao, creative director and founder of TATRAS: “I always find solace in collaborating with younger designers”.
“I saw a lot of myself in Jordan when we first met & felt obligated to help present him with a platform I never had access to”. Fresher states.
“I want to prove to the industry why I deserve to be here”.
This collaboration promises to deliver an immersive approach to design by blending elements of craftsmanship and a strict artistic vision.
RIOT HILL’s first runway show, in collaboration with TATRAS took place on January 16th 2020 at the iconic Palais de Tokyo, Saut du Loup, Paris. Designed by Jordan Fresher, featuring selected accessories manufactured by Atomic Mission Gear and shoe soles supplied by Vibram.
TATRAS continues to consistently dedicate themselves towards developing new design solutions while still presenting a modern contemporary look characterised by high performance technical fabrics.
