Christopher Bevans has designed clothes for some of the biggest celebrities around. Jay-Z, John Legend, LeBron James are just a few of the names that the Portland-based fashion designer has worked with. Now, another legendary name is joining that list: Eddie Bauer. The iconic outdoor clothing company recently revealed the Eddie Bauer X Christopher Bevans Collection for 2022—and that’s just the start of this collaboration. Eddie Bauer recently tapped Bevans as their first creative director.

“We were looking for talent that could keep one foot in the outdoors—but open doors to a different creative language, aesthetic, customers and a message about what the outdoors means and who is welcome there,” former Eddie Bauer CEO Damien Huang told WWD about the collaboration with Bevans.

In addition to big name celebrities, the Brooklyn-born Bevans has worked with brands such as Billionaire Boys Club, Sean John, Yeezy, and BEAST MODE. As a creative director at Nike, he helped create Roger Federer’s “RF” logo and led the 25th anniversary of the Air Force 1 campaign

With Eddie Bauer, Bevans is being asked to help update an outdoor wear company that has been around since 1920: “Despite being in the outdoor industry for a century, we wanted to take our product line in a different direction, not just recirculate the same themes,” Huang explained.

For the Eddie Bauer X Christopher Bevans Collection, this new direction results in a line of gender-neutral clothing inspired by the joy of being outdoors. It’s a departure from what you might expect from Eddie Bauer—but in a good way. What sets the collection apart is sharp tailoring, pops of color, and undeniably bold prints. Here are some of our favorite pieces from the new collection.
