Moose Knuckles x Eckhaus Latta Unveil Experimental Collaboration

Outerwear is reimagined in this technically explorative and multi-functional collection

Montreal-based luxury outerwear brand Moose Knuckles announced their collaboration with designers Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta and their eponymous label, Eckhaus Latta, on a versatile outerwear collection. This innovate, experimental 10-piece series embodies shape, engineering, and insurgent viewpoints that effectively meld Moose Knuckles allure with Eckhaus Latta’s unconventional designs. 

The collection features a Moose Knuckles lightweight quilt blanket jacket, raincoat, and hoodie in pale tones of cream, white and black. RDS certified down—the core technology of the jacket—can be seen clearly in the design, cut in transparent nylon and filled with light, hand-dyed melange down, creating a layered visual effect.

“Mike and Zoe [founders and designers of Eckhaus Latta] are incredible, fearless creatives, who inspired us with their beautiful work centered  around craft and community,” said Joseph McGee, Vice President of Women’s Design for Moose Knuckles. “The collaboration with Eckahus Latta has been an artistic and technical exploration where, together, we reimagined our classic Moose Knuckles outerwear in new and inspiring ways, using techniques not seen in our collections before.”

The collection boasts both mens and womenswear that is functional and cutting-edge. Statement pieces are disguised as jackets, pants, and trenches, their neutral color scheme nodding to the everyday ability of the garments. Expertly and intricately crafted, the collection offers warmth and protection while pushing the boundaries of what outerwear can be, and presents it in a rebellious manner.

Down, which is traditionally used throughout Moose Knuckles outerwear, is crafted in a new hyper-light form, incorporating hand-dyed feathers in traditional Eckhaus Latta silhouettes. The collaboration also features convertible windbreaker jackets and a matching pant, classified as multifunctional separates. 

“We’ve never made puffers, so the opportunity to explore this language with Moose Knuckles was really appealing—they are very open to experimentation,” said Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta, founders and designers of Eckhaus Latta. “For this collaboration, we wanted to create storytelling that read capital “F” fashion, but in a subtly perverse and confusing way.” 

The collection launches February 3 on, at Moose Knuckles store locations in SoHo (New York), Chicago Yorkdale, CF Toronto Eaton Centre, CF Pacific  Center, Eckhaus Latta stores in Los Angeles and New York, and select global retailers including Saks Fifth Avenue and SSENSE.
