Helly Hansen Spring/Summer 2015 Highlights:
Training: In the early 1970s, Helly Hansen debuted the world’s first technical base layers. Today, the refined Lifa® Stay Dry Technology remains the driving force behind the company’s moisture-managing training collection. In Spring/Summer 2015, Helly Hansen adds the W Aspire Wicked Wednesday Singlet and Pace Wicked Wednesday SS training tops for hot summer days.
Sailing: Since Norwegian sea captain Helly Juell Hansen transformed the outdoor market with the introduction of the world’s first supple waterproof fabrics in 1877, professional sailors have relied on his namesake company for best-in-class protection. In Spring/Summer 2015, Helly Hansen debuts its all-new Aegir collection developed with strong input from professional sailor Thomas Coville and Volvo Ocean Race’s first-ever team of all-female sailors.

The fashion-forward W Naiad Reversible Jacket comes in an array of fun-loving prints and colors while the race-inspired HP Shore Jacket‘s cool marine graphics and high-visibility collar offers unrivaled waterproof breathability.

Helly Hansen’s extensive Spring/Summer 2015 rainwear collection brings time-tested weather protection to the urban outerwear market in fashionable silhouettes that add unmatched style to any rainy occasion. Helly Hansen adds two high-fashion rain jackets to its collection: The W Somerville Jacket, a limited-edition jacket designed with rich, semi-transparent fabrics and a modern print, and the Universal Moto Jacket, a distinguished, hip-length moto jacket built for city adventures.
