This autumn, Norse Projects have curated a collection of out-door ready pieces, from heavyweight base layers to heavy-duty weatherproof jackets to see you through the wind, rain and snow. We’ve put together a look book including some of our favourite pieces to give you some cold-weather outfit inspiration. In this editorial, we’ll be breaking down these outfits to show you why Norse Projects have been one of the go-to brands since their inception in 2004.
In this first outfit, let’s start from the top. The Beanie in Ecru is a neutral, versatile accessory, crafted from 100% Scottish lambswool, brushed for a super soft feel. The turn-up cuff has a contrasting thicker rib knit, finished tastefully with a woven branded label. The Tech Merino Half-Zip mid-layer features a blend of extra fine Merino wool with 37.5 technology, keeping your body at the ideal core temperature of 37.5°C, with a breathable construction to keep the microclimate next to your skin at the same temperature. When you get warm, patented active particles remove sweat whilst it’s still in the vapour stage, keeping you dry and comfortable. As you get colder, the same particles use energy to keep you warm. This chemical-free technology is built to last as long as the fleece itself, making it perfect for year-round wear.
The Thor GTX Infinium 2.0 jacket is cut to a mac silhouette, with a removable hood that boasts a smart flat collar underneath. This coat features a durable, recycled construction with GORE-TEX Infinium and WINDSTOPPER technology for water and wind resistance, reinforced with a DWR water-repellent treatment to protect you from the elements, whilst still remaining breathable. Primaloft insulation keeps things cosy, with a thigh-length cut for great coverage. For your lower half, the Ezra Light Stretch trousers are a comfortable option for any outfit, with a hard-wearing organic cotton twill construction, an elasticated waistband, a relaxed fit and a loose leg. The Ezra trousers are finished with a rich garment dye, that will develop a stylish fade over time.
For the second outfit, we’ve featured a best-selling accessory from Norse, the Twill Sports Cap. This decadent 6-panel cap has a curved brim, with a fully adjustable rear strap for the perfect fit. A white embroidered ‘N’ logo keeps things minimal, contrasting with the dark green hue. The Fyn Down 70/30 jacket is inspired by mountain parkas used by adventurers and the military for poor weather conditions. A blend of 70% cotton and 30% nylon creates a barrier against wind and rain, when the cotton yarn swells when wet, with a DWR treatment for water resistance. An 80% down and 20% recycled feather padding keeps cold breezes at bay, with a two-way zip fastening for a custom look.
For a mid-layer, the Sigfed Space Knit is a knitted sweatshirt with a crewneck-feel, boasting a blend of cotton, Mohair, alpaca wool and polyamide mix and a two-toned brown and off-white striped design. The thick-rib collar, sleeve cuffs and hem help to keep the shape of the garment, ensuring the Sigfed is built to last. The Johannes Heavy Long Sleeve T-Shirt works great as a bottom layer in the cold, or as a lightweight sweatshirt in the warmer months. This regular fit tee is manufactured in Portugal, with 100% organic cotton. An embroidered tonal logo can be found on the chest, keeping the branding subtle.
For a smart-casual look that’s perfect for everyday wear, outfit three sees the previously mentioned Beanie in a seasonal olive green. The Tyge Broken Twill shirt fuses the worlds of utilitarian and workwear staples, with an overdyed cotton-twill design, a wide placket and dual chest pockets. The shirt can be worn as a base layer, or over your favourite hoodie as demonstrated here.
The Vagn Classic Hood has seen many iterations over the years and it’s easy to see why it’s become such an important part of Norse Project’s collections. This no-nonsense hoodie is made with a loopback organic cotton to keep things breathable, with a soft two-layered hood that’s adjustable using the drawstring, finished with metal tips. A kangaroo pocket can be used for extra storage, or just to warm your hands. A short-sleeved Johannes Logo T in Navy compliments the autumnal tones of this outfit, with a screen-printed logo to the chest, also manufactured in Portugal from organic cotton.
Last but by no means least, this final outfit is perfect for a range of scenarios, including coffee dates, interviews and nights on the town. The Twill Sports Cap can be seen in a burnt orange hue, paired with the Anton Flannel Shirt in a deep green, with a super soft brushed organic cotton flannel structure, signed off with mother of pearl buttons and a single chest pocket.
The Johannes Heavy T-Shirt is a heavyweight version of the aforementioned Logo T, with an embroidered tonal chest logo and a relaxed fit, perfect for an under shirt or worn in summer as a top layer.
