Goldwin and Kaptain Sunshine Announce New Collab, Release Two All-Weather Jackets

Available exclusively in Japan, the jackets will be available for purchase online and in select stores on December 17th.


(DECEMBER 17, 2020 — TOKYO, JAPAN) — Almost exactly one year following their last collaborative collection, Goldwin and Kaptain Sunshine are teaming up again on two new jackets: the Field Coat and the Stand Collar Snow Jacket. Both are exclusive to Japan and will be available for purchase in highly limited quantities at Goldwin’s flagship stores in Japan and online.

The jackets mark Goldwin and Kaptain Sunshine’s second collaborative project since 2019. True to both brands’ design ethos, they exemplify Goldwin’s alpine expertise and Kaptain Sunshine’s classic design. One of the common threads between the two brands is a passion for skiing — Kaptain Sunshine designer Shinsuke Kojima grew up skiing in Hakuba, Nagano, and Goldwin is one of Japan’s few heritage ski apparel companies, with a history that goes back more than 70 years.
