Timberland and Icebreaker joined forces for the first time to create the Timberland x Icebreaker capsule collection aiming to “bridge the gap between urban and natural environments with pieces designed to take you from the city to the outdoors and back again.”
“At Icebreaker, nature is our biggest inspiration. It influences everything we do, from the fibers we grow to the functional pieces we design and create,” said Jelena Fursman, Icebreaker’s global design manager. “Collaborating with Timberland felt like a natural step—two brands united by a commitment to do better. This collection combines Icebreaker’s natural fibers and soft geometry design lines with Timberland’s iconic heritage aesthetic enabling us to create versatile, timeless, durable pieces for the outdoors and urban adventures.”
Icebreaker’s New Zealand-sourced merino wool is featured in all apparel styles, with a nod to Timberland’s “rugged heritage and bold designs by blending durable fibers like cotton and linen.” Colorways from Wheat Boot, Vibrant Earth, Sand, Chalk, and Onyx/Black, pay homage to the brands’ “respective iconic tones across the apparel and footwear styles.”
The apparel collection for men and women includes a tee, jacket, chino shorts, polo for men, and a tank top for women. The Timberland x Icebreaker Merino ZoneKnit tee is a breathable, lightweight blend of Merino wool and Tencel in ventilating mesh areas. The Merino Cotton Jacket features a cotton canvas blend for high abrasion resistance. The Merino Terry Chino Shorts feature 100 percent merino wool baby terry, while the Merino Linen Top features a blend of 70 percent merino wool and 30 percent linen.
In footwear, the Timberland x icebreaker Trailquest Low Waterproof Sneakers are waterproof with uppers made from premium leather and ReBOTL fabric containing at least 50 percent recycled plastic. The GreenStride comfort sole is made from 75 percent renewable bio-based EVA, while the quarter panel features Icebreaker’s merino wool.
