Actual Source and Goldwin Connect for "Alpine Codex Group" Uniform

Heritage Japanese outwear brand Goldwin has worked with Utah-based design studio Actual Source to dream up a special collaboration imagining a fictional hiking group known as “Alpine Codex Group” which combines the ideas of the American publisher and the outdoor apparel expertise of Goldwin.

The resulting collection is presented as the uniform of the hiking group, incorporating a number of functional and everyday staples. Highlighted are GORE-TEX caps fitted with one-touch spindle adjusters and GORE-TEX 3-Layer jackets featuring graphic typography and exposed clothing label accents. Oversized sweatshirts and hoodies are printed with original artwork by graphic artist SHINKOWNSUKE, and rounding out the collection are C3fit socks offering arch support and drawcord Relax pants. While designed for outdoor exploration, much of the collection could easily serve as weatherproof snowboarding/ski pieces.

The Goldwin x Actual Source “Alpine Codex Group” capsule will be available online and at select shops January 31 at 9 a.m. PT (12 p.m. ET). To celebrate the collaboration, a pop-up event will also be held at Gallery Commune located in Shibuya, Tokyo.
