Nine Lives Mixes Ventile With Florian Bertmer Artwork
You probably know the old saying, “keep your friends close and Cthulhu closer” …right?
Well, Nine Lives has, and they clearly have taken this made-up idiom to heart with their new Ventile Bomber. The jacket has the high-quality materials and construction Nine Lives is lauded for, as well as the humor and sense of play that sets the brand apart from the competition. A 9.7oz. waterproof outer and super-hardcore YKK zipper make up the exterior of the jacket, but the cool stuff is under the hood.
The jacket is lined with Cthulhu-heavy artwork by Florian Bertmer, printed on 100% rayon that is sinfully soft to the touch. The German illustrator’s artwork is characteristically edgy and vibrant, and Nine Lives proves to us (yet again) how one avant-garde detail can reframe a classic.
The lined Bomber is available from Self Edge for $565.
