Right in time for the temperature to actually catch up with the season, Opening Ceremony is rolling out its first collaboration with American outerwear favorite Columbia.

The 10-piece collection, ranging in price from $65 to $995, includes everything from cozy shirt jackets to sweatpants, hats, and gloves, along with more serious gear such as a three-way reversible parka that converts between a down liner and a waterproof shell jacket.

Each piece combines the all-around technical know-how that Portland, Oregon-based Columbia is known for with Opening Ceremony’s young, vibrant aesthetic, while still referencing Columbia’s classic silhouettes. Think fleece jackets and anoraks in bright colors with details like contrasting psychedelic floral-print liners, printed trim, and color-blocked pockets. But somehow there’s a little something for everyone, whether you’re into a flashier aesthetic or like to keep it simple.

As of today, you can shop the full collection in-store at Opening Ceremony’s New York, Los Angeles, and Tokyo locations, as well as online at
