RAINS has teamed up with the Montreal based retailer OFF THE HOOK and designed the RAINS x OTH AΩ Anorak, as part of OFF THE HOOK’s ongoing AΩ Project, celebrating the shop’s 15 year anniversary. Fresh off their recent collaboration with Vans, OFF THE HOOK continues to examine their joint Greek and Québécois heritage, this time by teaming up with RAINS.
The AΩ Anorak is constructed from lightweight, fully waterproof fabric and features a front pocket with a waterproof zipper that is essential for the urban commuter caught in the rain. The AΩ Anorak also features a brimmed hood, which, when opened, is marked with a small Greek inscription reading “I am the Alpha and the Omega”. The Greek letters A and Ω appear on the right shoulder in reflective grey 3M. As with other pieces from OFF THE HOOK’s ongoing AΩ Project, the anorak is based on a grey and blue colour scheme. RAINS and OFF THE HOOK collaborated with Chicago-based photographer Marcus Smith on a lookbook for the AΩ Anorak. Renowned for his dramatic photography focusing on athletes, Marcus was a natural choice for the two brands, as the anorak is meant to be used by urbanites who are never slowed down, regardless of the weather. The RAINS x OTH AΩ Anorak will be available in limited quantity on Tuesday, September 22nd on rains.dk and shop.offthehook.ca with shipping available worldwide.
