The two brands said they found common ground in their sense of adventure and flair for functionality, which resulted in a capsule collection of outerwear pieces.
Inspired by Ernest Shackleton’s endurance expedition to Antarctica in 1914, where the explorer wore protective Jaeger clothing, Dalton and the design team at Jaeger created a collection with a heavy focus on performance wear and essentials, influenced by Jaeger’s archive and Dalton’s contemporary approach to classic tailoring.
Key pieces include a flannel gilet, a showerproof stretch nylon hooded jacket and a mixed-gauge wool sweater. The collection also includes accessories, such as a balaclava, gloves and a snood.
Given the heavy focus on performance wear, lightweight double-faced fabrics were used to ensure flexibility, including stretch nylon and Thermocool wool.
“I’ve been a longtime admirer of the way in which Jaeger marries classic tailoring with technical elements, particularly in fabrics,” Dalton said.
The collection will be sold in Jaeger stores and online.
