Descente - From the Outside Looking in

An exercise in layered protection, form and tailored functional uniform style… body armour reborn…

The DC Comics inspired narrative follows a lone protector / an observer of the wastelands outside of the city traversing between his brutalist lair and the modern metropolis…

This exclusive content exercise for Descente AW19 represents and viscerally displays the protective abilities of outerwear, illustrating how to put the garments together, whilst reflecting on nuances of layering and tailoring within the styling as an aesthetic modus operandi.

A rich selection of premium ground breaking technical outerwear is witnessed, consisting of lightweight shells utilised in outdoor sports from fell running to inner city cycling, paving the way for more heavy weight pieces such as the '5 way modular' MIZUSAWA down coat that facilitates being worn as either a short jacket or a long shell coat, a clean all-weather coat and full-zip hoodie.

The pursuit of perfection and protection is visibly the Descente Allterrain manifesto - A deep rooted design and production ethos concerned with pushing the boundaries of technical garments and clothing for those who inhabit the metropolis, and for those who challenge Mother Nature in the barren wilderness.
