Parajumpers broadens its horizons for spring 2017. Their latest Spring/Summer 2017 collection has challenged the traditional codes of luxury outerwear again.

Four collaborations
The Italian label unveils four collaborations. Designed in partnership with Parajumpers creative director Massimo Rossetti, Korean designer Heesung Choi, Italian designer Gionata Malagodi and Japanese designer Yoshinoro Ono bring their point of view to the brand’s utilitarian outerwear. Massimo Rossetti says: “We always aim to explore different horizons, and therefore we like to opt for collaborations you wouldn’t expect from a premium outerwear brand.

Their motto is: "that others may live".

The inspiration
Massimo Rossetti (has many years of experience as a designer of outerwear) and Ape created the brand Parajumpers after a visit to Anchorage, Alaska. Rossetti was inspired by the courageous men of the 210th Rescue Squadron in Anchorage. The collection endures the most extreme situations. It includes innovative outerwear, with technical fabrics and functional details.

About the collection and materials
The collection is made of hard-wearing nylon. Jackets have a removable down-padded lining and a fur-trimmed hood. The collar fastens with a hook used in parachuting. On the front lies a zippable multi-cargo pocket containing a further three pockets designed for carrying accessories (phones, ipods, etc.).


The result is an innovative outerwear collection with highly technological components, designed above all else to be functional.
