In the 1970s, the Karhu outdoor division manufactured and distributed an assortment of premium fishing supplies. Included in it were colourful spinners and lures.
To honour its past, Karhu and Finnish clothing brand R-Collection worked together on a collaborative capsule collection, which is inspired by the fishing lures’ bright colours.
The capsule collection consists of R-Collection items like the Classic Anorak, T-shirt, Raglan Sweatshirt and XL Anorak Bag. The collection differentiates in look from R-Collection’s existing inline versions by unique added details like collaborative branding in the form of embroidery, screen print and woven labels.
The capsule collection will be produced in limited quantities and will be available in store on Friday the 5th of April at 10:00.
“R-Collection is a family owned Finnish leisurewear brand that spreads the word of a sporty and relaxed lifestyle. Back in the late seventies the brand created an iconic piece, the Anorak jacket that has stayed much the same since it’s creation, due to its contemporary design.
The headquarters and the main factory site are situated in a little town of Kajaani, rural northeastern Finland. Today R-Collection is celebrating it’s forty years of existence and still going strong.”
