In 1911, the expedition of Norwegian explorer, Roald Amundsen, was the first ever to reach the South Pole. The contemporarily fashionable Roald anorak is inspired by those Amundsen wore on his many adventurous expeditions.
The knee-long anorak has a spacious fit. It is made from a Japanese nylon shell, and it is fully lined with a wool-cotton fabric. The wool rib cuffs are knitted in Denmark.
At the left side seam is a long zipper that makes it easy to enter and exit. The kangaroo pocket with snap buttons adds a sporty touch. The fitted hood has strings and a D-ring closure at the front and the back. To ensure mobility, there’s a 2-button slit on the back.
The shell is made from 100% nylon. It is the first time HANSEN has used a fabric made exclusively from synthetic fibres. But this is no ordinary fabric. For one, it is woven in Japan. For a nylon, it is not really that crispy. It almost feels like cotton. The added benefit is that it is water repellent.
What is really unique is that it is dyed the old-fashioned way with natural colours that are extracted from logwood tree, also known as bloodwood. This gives a unique and natural unevenness in the colour.
The model is 186cm tall and wearing size M.
