and wander was launched in 2011 by two designers, Keita Ikeuchi and Mihoko Mori, who worked together as designers at ISSEY MIYAKE. and wander was born of a strong passion of the two founders for making “fashion for the outdoors that is just as enjoyable as the everyday garments." and wander's sophisticated items blend high-fashion and avant-garde aesthetics and style with the functionality and practicality of outdoor clothing. Because the designers are avid hikers and outdoors enthusiasts, and wander items are made with durable, light-weight materials with water-resistance and wind protection, and unique color palletes that harmonize with nature, and give a fresh impression in town. Based on insights gained from field tests conducted both in Japan and overseas, and wander creates quality items through a precise pattern cutting technique and practical design details.
