Brooks Brothers, the classic iconic American brand, is proud to introduce an exclusive collaboration with Spyder, one of the world’s most recognizable outdoor and lifestyle brands. For the collaboration, the two brands tapped and enlisted three-time World Cup winning alpine ski racer, and four-time Olympian, Steven Nyman, to model the clothes and capture the authenticity of the gear for the campaign stills.
Designed in partnership with Brooks Brothers Creative Director Michael Bastian and Spyder’s expert product design team, the limited-edition collection integrates Brooks Brothers’ signature tailoring with Spyder’s high-performance fabrics, for a unique collection of sportswear and outerwear for men.
“I am so thrilled to collaborate with Spyder. We paid close attention to detail as we merged the iconic Brooks Brothers’ American style with Spyder’s advanced technical and performance expertise,” said Michael Bastian. “It was important for us that the pieces had a natural blend of preppy style and Spyder performance.”
The Brooks Brothers x Spyder capsule consists of eight collectible pieces, including sweaters, outerwear, and accessories. Highlights include a slalom-inspired sweater with padding as well as a zip-front color-block sweater that are made with breathable wool and are thermal regulating, and are constructed to be wrinkle-resistant and 100% hypoallergenic. Special pieces include waterproof winter parkas, one in a snow-camo print and the other in an olive green with red and grey accents; both are constructed with GORE-TEX fabrics and responsibly sourced goose down insulation with a technical seam-taping process to reinforce impermeability against the elements. Accessories feature wool knit scarves and hats designed with ski motifs, including tromp l’oeil intarsia ski goggles.
“We recently launched Spyder’s new campaign, The Science of Speed, which illustrates our commitment to enhancing the ski experience both on and off the mountain,” said Brady Collings, GM of Spyder at Liberated Brands, Spyder’s leading sportswear partner in the U.S., Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, U.K., and select territories in the European Union. “We are excited for consumers to experience Spyder’s advanced product development combined with Brooks Brothers iconic aesthetic and offer a more elevated style this season.”
