We’re always happy to check out a new brand here at Proper, especially when they’re all about beautiful big jackets and named after one of the greatest mountaineers of all time. Created in conjunction with Sir Edmund Hillary’s son Peter this new brand also bears his legendary name and is inspired by the garments both he and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay wore in their conquest of Everest. A joint venture between New Zealand and the UK the Edmund Hillary collection sees high quality parkas in premium fabrics including sustainable down and waterproof ventile sitting alongside archive-inspired urban wear, knitwear and accessories. In support of Ed’s charitable legacy a percentage of the sale from each garment will also go to help Himalayan communities and outdoor activities for young people in the UK and New Zealand.
