Leading outdoor brand Berghaus and cutting edge designer Jeff Griffin first joined forces in 2007 to create a collection of unique performance products for the Japanese market. The first season saw the unusual pairing of the two companies launch the Solipsist jacket, a Limited Edition design which combined Berghaus' ultimate 'Big Wall' design with Griffin's distinctive and exclusive touches.
The Solipsist is an uncompromising, unflinching functional jacket for climbers who put themselves into the most extreme situations. When the going gets really tough, it won’t back down and it will help you to keep moving. Griffin’s work is infused with inspiration from the realms of the extreme to which he is drawn. He has channelled his experiences to generate stunning design touches and a camouflage pattern that elevate the Solipsist from outstanding to iconic. The result is a jacket as desirable as it is brutal.
Jeff Griffin explains:
“For us, here at Griffin, Berghaus is a beautiful brand with a beautiful product holding true to its roots. That makes it an appealing proposition for collaboration with Griffin. Berghaus looks after you on the mountain tops. I want to create a product that sells to those same active people but which will look at home in a city environment while retaining the ability to function at extremes.”
Since the jacket's launch in 2007 the collaboration has been available in a select range of stores in Japan. The last 100 pieces from the collaboration can now be found at the Griffin Online Store - www.griffin-studio.com.
