The brainchild of former Issey Miyake designers, Keita Ikeuchi and Mihoko Mori, and Wander is the Japanese label redefining the aesthetic and tactility of mountaineering. Formally trained at the Parisian house, Ikeuchi and Mori have taken their elevated approach to design and applied the highest quality textiles, finishes, and construction to outdoor performance apparel. Versatility is a core principle of and Wander; producing pieces that traverse lifestyle, and Japan’s natural elements, with a seamlessness that feels organic to the culture. From city to mountainside, and Wander encapsulates Japan’s adoration for the natural world and their preparedness for the ever-changing climate.
With a keen eye for minimalist design and uncompromising functionality, and Wander presents shell jackets, water-resistant hiking pants, and nylon pullovers that are equally as technical outdoors as they are appealing in the urban centers. Reflective details, strategically placed pockets, and performance fabrics speak to the detailed intentionality of the construction, while Ikeuchi and Mori honor the Japanese art of Outdoor Style meant to traverse any environment.
