Following on from the success of their AW05 collaboration, Paul Smith Jeans and Burton Snowboards have joined forces once again for an exciting new design project. Traditional formal clothing designed by Paul Smith will be seen on the mountains for the first time, using Burtonâ€™s innovative fabric technology and construction techniques.
As part of Burtonâ€™s Mark XIII collection a limited edition classic single-breasted hacking jacket in traditional English check sits alongside a limited edition, dark grey cavalry twill double-breasted trench coat and skinny-fit trousers. These traditional pieces are functional on the mountain and on the street.
â€œI have such an admiration for Burton Snowboards that when I was asked to collaborate with them the obvious route was â€œtrue sportswearâ€. For this second project I have taken tailored clothing and given it all the special features expected from me and Burton; unique hidden lining details, individual buttons, and Burtonâ€™s cutting edge technology; fully taped heat-welded seams and high performance waterproofingâ€ Paul Smith 2007
