Timberland launched its Black Forest Collection in Malaysia on 2 October 2015 at their outlet in Mid Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur. The Black Forest Collection is one of their Fall/Winter 2015 collections as part of their “Made for the Modern Trail” campaign, in which Timberland hopes to re-define the outdoors, bringing it closer to the city, where a new generation of adventure seekers live their lives.
The Fall/Winter 2015 Black Forest collection embodies the dark and beautiful shades of grey found in the deepest parts of the woods married with monochromatic head-to-toe looks. In tune with the global fashion trend of charcoal styles, the collection features premium leather boots, sleek apparel and modern jackets in city-centric silhouettes, and greyscale hues.
Speaking at the launch of the Black Forest Collection at the Timberland store in Midvalley Megamall, Melvin Chew, Country Manager for Timberland Malaysia, said, “The Modern Trail is a journey through the streets of Malaysia, its unpredictable weather and last minute plans, and The Black Forest Collection provides the versatility across footwear, apparel and accessories that allows consumers to blaze through without worry. Wherever the day’s path may lead – through shifts in temperature and terrain, or rugged days and refined nights – adaptability is fundamental to any outfit. This is the design inspiration for the Black Forest Collection, which we are proud to launch today.”
The photographer caught me chatting with Michelle Lee who was my FHM Girl Next Door 2010 finalist. I’m glad to see that’s she made a name for herself in the entertainment industry!
The “Made for the Modern Trail” platform celebrates the everyday adventures in spontaneity that fill consumers’ lives in today’s city environment. Timberland’s Fall 2015 collections deliver all-day versatility, outdoor performance and adaptive style for this active urban lifestyle.
City Ready: The Black Forest Collection
This collection is inspired by the adaptive nature of the colour black. Timberland’s rugged-refined city styles feature the colour that goes with anything, anywhere. Timberland’s take on fashion’s most prominent tone, the Black Forest Collection embodies the dark and beautiful shades of grey found in the deepest parts of the woods, married with monochromatic head-to-toe looks. In tune with the global trend of charcoal colouring, the collection features premium leather boots, sleek apparel and modern jackets in city-centric silhouettes, greyscale hues and an unmatched attention to detail.
On the Bike: The Moto Collection
Timberland’s Fall 2015 Moto Collection combines the best elements of moto looks, varied leather finishes, and designs that are unexpectedly refined for the city, yet rugged enough for the open road. Whether worn on the bike or off, this collection showcases authentic details – like leather with waxed, resin, oiled and graphite finishes – that honour the durability and aesthetic of bike culture.
For Fall/Winter 2015, Timberland also features 2 footwear collections with the cutting-edge Sensorflex™ technology – the Britton Hill Waterproof Boot Collection for men and the Bramhall Waterproof Boot Collection for women. Sensorflex™ is a three-layer suspension system that flexes with every step, designed to give the wearer maximum comfort and flexibility throughout the day without compromising on stability or traction. Both collections are crafted from premium leather and selected styles come with Harris Tweed® wool fabrics for a sleek, polished finish and refined look. Moreover, the Pendleton® wool accents for the women’s Bramhall Waterproof Boot Collection adds a feminine touch to the winter style.
The Black Forest Collection is currently available in Timberland outlets across Malaysia. Members of the Club Timberland Membership Card program are entitled to exclusive privileges at any Timberland outlet, from footwear and apparel vouchers to all-year discounts as well as shopping privileges.
