Timberland and icebreaker join forces for the first time to present a capsule designed for the present, with the future in mind in the Timberland® x icebreaker collection. The two brands, born on different sides of the earth, are united by a commitment to craftsmanship, nature, and reducing impact on the environment. Embracing icebreaker’s ‘Move to natural’ mindset and Timberland’s work and outdoor heritage, the collection aims 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,” says Jelena Fursman, icebreaker 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 both the apparel and footwear.
Offered in both men’s and women’s styles, the apparel collection includes a tee, jacket, chino shorts, a polo for men, and a tank top for women. The Timberland® x icebreaker Merino ZoneKnit™ tee features a breathable, lightweight blend of merino wool and TENCEL™ in ventilating mesh areas. The Merino Cotton Jacket features a durable cotton canvas blend for high abrasion resistance. The Merino Terry Chino Shorts feature 100% merino wool baby terry, while the Merino Linen Top features a lightweight, versatile blend of 70% merino wool and 30% linen.
In footwear, the Timberland® x icebreaker Trailquest Low Waterproof Sneakers are fully waterproof with uppers constructed of both Premium Leather and ReBOTL™ fabric—a material containing at least 50% recycled plastic. The GreenStride® comfort sole is made from 75% renewable bio-based EVA, while the quarter panel features icebreaker’s signature merino wool.
The collection comes to life through a campaign shot by Milan-based photographer, Teo Giovanni Poggi. The Timberland® x icebreaker collection will be available globally on May 30, 2023 and can be purchased on icebreaker.com, timberland.com and at select retailers.
