FUTUR and Mountain Research Tangle on a Colorful Capsule Collaboration

FUTUR‘s thoughtful approach to skate style has made the French label a favorite in Japan, leading to a series of collaborative efforts with the likes of Mizuno and Helly Hansen. Its latest team-up is with long-running apparel brand Mountain Research, described as “a versus collaboration and not an [‘x’] project” by FUTUR: hence the title FUTUR vs Mountain Research.

The collection is a straightforward offering of T-shirts and one buttoned shirt, drawing from the Japanese label’s stylistic cues. One tee boasts Mountain Research’s “Anarcho Mountaineer” verbiage in the bright Olympic hues utilized by FUTUR’s original T-shirt designs, while its counterpart sports a double mountain image in stark red and blue and the “FUTUR VS MOUNTAIN RESEARCH” branding. Also on hand is a new edition of Mountain Research’s signature animal embroidery shirt, elevated here by colorful stitched renderings of critters that live in the French mountain ranges.

Mountain Research’s ……. GENERAL STORE, where FUTUR will hold a pop-up before the items hit FUTUR’s web store and select shops.

Elsewhere in Japan, BAL and FACCIES introduced their latest seasonal collections.
