When Peak Performance decided to do its first collaboration in the history only a legend would do. Building a name for himself in re-imagining utilitarian workwear, it made sense that UK designer Nigel Cabourn was their first choice. Peak Performance spent months rifling through Nigel’s extensive personal archive of global army apparel to find the perfect pieces to re-invent.
With extensive experience with modern fabrics and technical details, Peak Performance designer Sofia Gromark Norinder worked with Nigel to bring to life the vintage pieces for optimal wear in the modern landscape. What resulted was a collection that brings together the best of both labels: British heritage army apparel expertise and Scandinavian innovation.
“It’s about remembering the past in order to re-imagine the future. It’s the powerful contrast between the crafted and the technical”
