Columbia Sportswear Collaborates With Jeffrey New York for Premium Line
Posted on July 7, 2011Columbia Sportswear Company and Jeffrey Kalinsky, founder of Jeffrey New York and EVP of designer merchandising for Nordstrom, have collaborated for a line of premium outerwear and footwear. The five piece men's collection will consist of four outerwear pieces and one boot. It will be sold at Jeffrey New York and five Nordstrom stores beginning in September.
The five piece men's collection will include a Down Jacket, Down Vest, Fleece Pullover, Fleece Jacket and Bugaboot Boot. Retail prices will range from $180 to $495.
Kalinksy says, "I love a good puffy jacket and Iím obsessed with premium fleece - it has many of the qualities of cashmere. I wanted to partner with someone who was known for doing those things well. We try to always buy and create the perfect product for our clients, so we are all very excited about this collaboration."
