PRESS / Kit Neale x Mountain Warehouse in The Mirror
Words by Harriet Flook
Music festivals are full of music, good times and much more. Some of the fun can even be finding a good outfit to wear.
Luckily for you, amping and outdoors retailer Mountain Warehouse have the ideal solution, they've launched a capsule collection with designer Kit Neale just in time for festival season and available yo buy from 27 March.
The range will be stocked exclusively in the brand’s Covent Garden store at launch, and will also online in clothing sizes XS to 3XL. Prices range from £19.99 for bum bags, £29.99 for a fleece to £49.99 for a two-man tent.
Kit Neale has previously worked on collaborations with IKEA and Dune, and this latest collecion for Mountain Warehouse, the Karabiner Collection has been 'designed for festival goers who enjoy looking good while they embrace the great outdoors'.
The Karabiner collection includes T-shirts, pakka jackets, wellies, a 20Cl backpack, two-man tent and a sleeping bag, amongst many other items.
All items are limited edition with unique and exclusive prints such as the The ' Bustling Boundaries ' print which takes inspiration from Kit’s travels around the world featuring a vintage style travel sticker print on a bright orange base with contrasting khaki green details - we love it.
The other print, Summer Breeze , is an abstract mountain scene in vibrant and clashing colours which celebrates the world’s natural beauty. The collection also features two slogans ‘Run Away With Me’ and ‘Let’s Go Outside’ which 'encapsulate the fun and free spirited nature of the range'.
Speaking about the collection Kit Neale says “The Karabiner Collection has combined my love of travel and sense of adventure with practical festival wear for millennials enjoying the great outdoors. Collaborating with Mountain Warehouse has meant I can apply high fashion ideas to products which are accessible to all through their reasonable price points. Whether you’re backpacking round Europe or pitching up your tent at Glastonbury, you’ll be able to express yourself with gear which is fun, adventurous, unique and modern.”
Mountain Warehouse Founder Mark Neale added“We have welcomed designer Kit Neale to the family to explore new ideas and add his creative flair to our tried and tested products. Kit’s eye for trend led pieces and unique print designs has created a limited-edition festival collection that will speak to new customers. I am excited to see the Karabiner by Kit Neale Collection hit stores in March.”
