At Pyrenex, form follows function, but is never compromised on. This is a brand responsible for the Authentic jacket – its name, not just a reference to its certified authenticity – and the equally iconic Mistral, Spoutnic and Mythic that followed it. Among some of the most sleek and streamlined down jackets on the market, the brand’s USP is its ability to fuse tradition with modern, understated design. Without trying too much, a Pyrenex jacket works hard, both practically and sartorially. Ultimately, a Pyrenex coat does its job whilst looking good – a careful balance achieved by always evolving and respecting the past. It’s why they’ve remained relevant for 160 years, and why the Authentic looks just as good now as it did in the ‘80s.
When you buy a Pyrenex jacket, you buy into the heritage and style of a label that has endured the changing of two centuries, two world wars and sixteen decades. To celebrate this landmark anniversary, we caught up with the Pyrenex team to find out more about what sets their jackets apart from the rest.
