Dainese Launches The 36060 Capsule Collection

Unless you’re a rider, you probably wouldn’t have heard of Dainese, the industry leader in protective gear for motorcyclists, mountain bikers and winter sports. You might, however, be hearing a lot more about it soon, courtesy of its new capsule collection launching online and at select stores on the West Coast and Midwest.

Comprising jackets, shirts, knits, gloves and footwear, the 36060 collection (named after the zipcode of the brand’s birthplace in Molvena, Italy) is the first in the company’s 40-year history to cross over into lifestyle territory. It’s also a beaut. Dainese’s designers whittled down the collection to some outstanding core pieces, including the four-pocket Harrison leather jacket, made from waxed cowhide leather with industry-certified Pro Shape protectors at the shoulder and elbow and reflective inserts designed to be visible as needed. Elsewhere, the Chaplin Tex jacket, crafted from original waxed cotton that ages to a beautiful patina, has a slick hybrid workwear look to it, with smart features including double zips for ventilation and warming the hands, collar latches, and special pockets in the back to accommodate Dainese back protectors.

36060 also offers two styles of elegantly knitted pullovers with elbow patches, slim fit shirts, and tab-front, ergonomically seamed pants with DuPont Kevlar reinforcements at the knee and tailbone. As for the accessories? There are canvas kicks and goatskin gloves with knuckle and joint protective inserts, but Dainese’s interpretation of the moc boot in full-grain cowhide is one of the most original we’ve seen this year, fitted with gear-shifting reinforcements and ankle bone padding. It’s upgraded riding style like you’ve never seen it before. Click above for select pics from the lookbook or the following link to see 36060 style on the road.
