Yesterday we've received this amazing set of images from the sophisticated and elegant outdoor label Aether. Aether was started by the two LA film producers Palmer West and Jonah Smith in a need to create something between the obvious performance-driven, and not-so-good-looking brands, and aesthetically pleasing who suffer from a lack of quality. The result is a collection with modern styling and tailored cuts that are paired with the function of high-tech weather, oil and dirt resistant fabrics. Beautiful gear in which you don't look like going for an arctic expedition, but rather travel to beautiful places, with beautiful people. Something we really like! [ Continue reading ]
