One of the key elements for us of AW16 is layering. It's this styling element that has been the driving force behind our decision to develop our first Gillet. As always with UG we’ve approached the piece from an authentic technical outdoor perspective.
Inspired by those Californian Mentalists ‘The Stone Masters’ AW16 sees us take the concept of the lightweight, real down Gillet and really push it to the next level.
This is a fully functioning, technical outdoor piece that just happens to be the best looking lightweight Gillet you'll find this season.
For AW16 we have two shell fabrics. The first is something very, very special indeed. It's coated and fully breathable, micro-ripstop kite fabric and is totally unique to UG!
The second fabric is a totally new direction for UG and is a perfect addition to the ever expanding range of quality fabrics and constructions. It's a very vintage construction wool melange fabric and looks incredible set against the technical look and feel of the garment.
The stow hood is a much heavier, super matt Nylon, giving a true utilitarian look. This type of fabric and texture mixing always comes from that lifelong love of all things Massimo Osti.
The Massimo connection doesn't stop there. This garment has so much ‘form follows function’ design, that it is a true-engineered piece that we believe the master himself would approve of.
As well as all of the above it's the ultimate, versatile piece that is easy to stuff into your bag and lets you breath so you keep toasty outside, yet not overheating as you transition inside and most importantly nails our seasons layered look when styled with one of our check shirts and beautiful Vintage melange sweats.
Ultimately it is just a 'bang on' looking, perfect Autumn piece.
