white mountaineering has struck two collabs with paris-based larose, a specialized manufacturer of headgear, and which seamlessly matches the items from the fashion brand's s/s 2014 collection. the aim of this collab was to create a timeless design that would be eye-catching yet transcend volatile trends. the limited edition five-panel camp caps are entirely hand-made and feature colourful botanical patterns against a backdrop of ivory and navy blue. this cap collection is for the japanese market and as such only available at the newly opened white mountaineering store  and isetan department store  in tokyo, but also at colette  in paris. the other collab concerns summery straw hats, one in ivory and the other in navy blue, both adorned with a band of the aforementioned fabric with a botanical motif. contrary to the caps, these hats are only available at the renowned concept store in the french capital. location : 2-7 sarugaku-cho [daikanyama]. location : isetan men's building, 3-14-1 shinjuku, second floor [shinjuku]. location : 213 rue st.-honoré [st.-honoré].
