Diemme Pairs Up with White Mountaineering

At the essence of all good collaborations is something new being brought to the table. In some cases, that means disrupting, unsettling and challenging convention.

While you might more naturally elect to leave the zip part in the box, it’s there if you want to sport something different.

It comes in two colours, black and cognac, and is available now at and
