Nikita Clothing Launches Outerwear

Nikita Clothing Launches Outerwear

After more then 5 years of creating street-wear exclusively, Nikita Clothing has introduced technical outerwear; the newest addition to their women’s specific line of clothing.

(January 13th, 2006) “With our strong relationship to snowboarding the introduction of outerwear into our collection seems very natural and logical,” says Nikita Clothing’s owner and designer Heida Birgisdottir. “We have been snowboarding for more than 15 years in the harsh conditions of Iceland, so we are confident that we can create performance outerwear that meets and exceeds even the highest standards. After all, not only do we snowboard all of the time, but Nikita was born in our very own snowboard shop. ”



The first outerwear collection from Nikita includes 4 jackets and 3 pants, ranging from 3,000mm-15,000mm. All pieces will include varying levels of technical features including stormflaps, handwarmer pockets, waterproof zippers, removable powder skirts and hoods, Tricot and moisture wicking lining and pit-zips.  As a standard feature all pieces will come equipped with fully taped seams and waterproof zippers.  Jackets will have removable powder skirts. Of course, Nikita Outerwear is designed specifically For Girls Who Ride, by a girl who rides, so it’s all street legal as well.

“I wanted to create a line that would technically perform at all levels of snowboarding, but would still have all of the cuts, colors and details that make everything look far better then your average snowboarding fit,” adds Birgisdottir. “We worked hard to make sure our first collection meets function with style, head-on.”

Nikita Clothing will be showing outerwear at ASR booth #2051 and SIA booth #C1001. For sales inquiries please contact Jen McVey: (415) 394-3090 x4, Jen@nikitaclothing.com. For media inquiries please contact Jessie Cohen: 415-394-3090 x3, Jessie@Nikitaclothing.com
