Based in Shibuya, and wander aims to create versatile and durable pieces for their seasonal collections, using both Polartec and Primaloft materials in their creations.
Arriving on our second floor, we have a selection T-shirts, hoodies, jackets, fleeces and accessories that are all designed to an impeccable standard, perfect for both the urban and more remote adventures.
The first of many in an already excellent capsule is the Stretch Shell Jacket is the Polartec® Alpha Jacket in Navy. This jacket is constructed of 100% nylon and features Polartec padding on the inside of the jacket, alongside this the jacket features two large zip pockets on the chest portion.

Moving on to hoodies and fleeces, And Wander have further proved why they are so highly regarded when it comes to the quality and detailing on their products.
The Nylon Double Cloth Hoodie in black is 90% and 10% polyurethane, making for a lightweight, flexible yet durable hoodie. The hoody also features a half-buttoned placket, perfect for those autumn days when you're layering different pieces.
Following on, we introduce the Fleece Mesh Hoodie, which is a staff favourite here at the shop and is also available in green. The Fleece Mesh Hoodie is constructed of 100% polyester, because this is a synthetic fibre, it has more durability and is resistant to wrinkles and shrinking.

Similarly to the Fleece Mesh Hoodie, And Wander have produced another 100% polyester fleece with the Fleece Base Top in grey. The fleece is constructed using Thermolite technology - which benefits the wearer because of its ability to dry quickly, insulate heat well and allow free movement due to its lightweight fibres.
