Product development

GOLDWIN is first and foremost a manufacturing company. With that fact always in mind, we will continue to take full advantage of the latest, state of the art materials and technology to develop and offer innovative, high-quality products that our customers truly want.

Science of Movement Collection: Beauty in Motion

We have launched a new North Face brand collection under the banner of “Science of Movement: In quest of easy movement.” To ensure ease of movement, the products are designed with innovative patterns developed through our years of experience in outdoor wear as well as the ergonomic expertise of GOLDWIN Technical Center, our R&D facility. These form-fitting outfits deliver a refined silhouette and can be worn for outdoor activities as well as on the street or in the office. With the Science of Movement collection, GOLDWIN will continue to offer simple-in-design yet comfortable-to-wear clothing that will make your daily and athletic life even more enjoyable.

THE NORTH FACE Science of Movement long-sleeve tech-shirts

These tech-shirts are ideal for deskwork, with sleeves that allow smooth bending at the elbow without overstretching the fabric thanks to innovative construction from the shoulder to the cuff.

THE NORTH FACE Science of Movement rain pants

In developing these rain pants, a motion capture was used to record and quantify the movement of the hip and knee in the sitting and standing positions to create a special sewing pattern, called “Driveline Technology.” This innovative pattern-making technique resulted in elegantly streamlined, easy-movement pants that overcome the problems of rising hems while sitting and waist sagging after long hours of wear.

G-Titan Jacket receives ISPO AWARD 2017

The G-Titan Jacket developed by GOLDWIN, our original ski wear brand, received an ISPO AWARD 2017 at ISPO MUNICH 2017, the largest international sports goods trade show in Europe. The ISPO AWARD is given to products of excellence upon stringent selection based on such criteria as innovation, function, design and eco responsibility. The GOLDWIN G-Titan Jacket is a high-quality, high-performance jacket suitable not only for skiing in frigid temperatures but also for wear before and after skiing. Water-resistant yet moisture-permeable GORE-TEX® forms the outer shell, and the inner lining is of soft, smooth fabric to ensure warmth and comfort.

Uniform Project with MXP odor-reducing underwear

Our MXP brand launched a “Uniform Project” program, offering sweat-absorbing, fast-drying, comfortable underwear made with Maxifresh Plus fabric jointly developed with JAXA, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. In our modern society, people are more sensitive to smells, and workers who are in direct contact with customers and offer high-quality services will highly appreciate this order-reducing garment. With no worries about their sweat and body order, they can focus on their job, leading to higher productivity and better performance. The initial supply of this product was to the drivers of Kyoto MK Taxi/Limousine Co., Ltd.

New types of store and business

GOLDWIN Inc. continues to evolve and develop new types of businesses that meet the needs of customers. For us, a store is not just a place to sell products; it is where we communicate with our customers. We host various events and workshops to interact with them, and provide a wide range of services to accommodate their needs.

NERUTRALWORKS. BY GOLDWIN: New form of athletic shop with innovative services

NEUTRALWORKS. BY GOLDWIN was opened as our flagship athletics shop in Gaien-mae, Tokyo, home to some of Japan’s leading athletics facilities. It hosts unique events and offers various services in response to the needs of our customers.

Run Workshop

Our C3fit brand has been hosting a series of “Run Workshops” with the theme of “Working toward the next level of running performance.” With top-rated athletes and coaches as instructors, they are a new type of workshop for runners, offering both a classroom lecture and running demonstration. The first two-hour Run Workshop was held on January 11, 2017, and the participants enjoyed Mr. Takuya Naruse’s talk on “Adopting a Winning Mentality” and running exercise with him.

Promotion at TOKYO MARATHON EXPO 2017

At TOKYO MARATHON EXPO 2017 held at Tokyo Big Sight on February 23–25, 2017, we sold products specifically developed for the Marathon and provided conditioning service for runners. Adjacent to the booth, a REBOOT Stretch Room was also set up for visitors to experience a sample of our personal stretch program free of charge. Focusing on the lower body, this stretch program was very much welcomed by the enthusiastic runners.

“DANSKIN beautiful things”: Comprehensive athletic lifestyle shop for women

GOLDWIN opened a DANSKIN beautiful things shop in Takashimaya Gate Tower Mall, a newly opened popular mall at Nagoya station. As Danskin’s first comprehensive athletic lifestyle shop for women, it carries Danskin’s active wear as well as THE NORTH FACE, C3fit, and MXP brand products. Responding to the demand for everyday clothes with the functionality and comfort of sportswear, the store offers a wide range of products from active wear for yoga and workouts to day-to-day clothing. Through its offerings we support women who pursue beauty and health by living an active life.
