Snow-Resistant White? Artist Terence Koh and Designer Karim Rashid Reimagine Jackets for Peutery
Artist Terence Koh has plastered his white aesthetic on furry sneakers and moon boots for a collaboration with Forex and Opening Ceremony, and on Chuck Taylor high tops for Converse. For his latest design endeavor, Koh stepped out of footwear, reimagining two of Italian outerwear brand Peuterey’s signature waterproof jackets to mark the label’s 10th anniversary. Peuterey also tapped industrial designer Karim Rashid to put his spin on their women’s Sceptre and men’s Guardian styles.
Koh may have added some depth to the opaque white his designs typically come in. He “opted for an ultra light and transparent high-tech fabric, which he covered with opalescent polyurethane for a milk-like effect,” reports WWD. “Rashid created a painted glassy effect through digital printing and laminating with polyurethane.”
The jackets don’t come cheap. Priced at $1,310 to $1,704, the line will hit Peuterey’s flagship store in Milan this fall.
The collaboration may seem like an odd choice for Koh, but then again, the white coats he wears in cooler months do bear a close resemblance to Peuterey’s sporty luxe style.
