New Timberland collection a tribute to the Northern Lights
If you’ve never seen the Northern Lights, also known as the Northern Lights, put such a trip on your bucket list. Certainly, traveling this far north to see this spectrum of light in the northernmost latitudes takes a lot of time and money, so it’s not a reality for many of us. So here’s a possible alternative closer to you: Outerwear manufacturer and retailer Timberland has launched a collection that showcases the vibrant colors of this natural phenomenon.
The NL Sky collection offers a plethora of options including fleeces, shoes, hoodies and t-shirts. Of course, the colors are brilliant. Nonetheless, there is more than an imaginary journey near or to the Arctic at play here. Timberland has designed many of these products using their ReBotl material, which is made from recycled plastic bottles as well as recycled insulation. This collection is a reminder of how fragile the environment is and how the consumption of virgin materials contributes to the wider climate crisis.
“This concept explores nature and its connection to the imagination as darkness fades into the swirling light show known as the Aurora Borealis. Every track on the ground and every star in the sky represents new possibilities and ideas, ”said George Clayton, senior clothing designer at Timberland, in a public statement. “This is the next fashion frontier for Timberland. The one that helps move the world forward through eco-innovation and responsible materials.
Digital fashion house The Manufacturer is working with Timberland on this collection, whose portfolio includes partnerships with Adidas, Napapijri, Puma and Under Armor.
The NL Sky collection builds on Timberland’s heritage of being at the forefront when it comes to advancing sustainable design. This year alone, the brand’s milestones included the launch of a new collection of sustainably manufactured footwear, Greenstride. Additionally, Timberland and its parent company VF Corporation announced what they said was the first regenerative rubber supply system in the garment industry.
