Outerwear that's both chic and fully functional is hard to come by, especially when we're talking about the clothing we need for our hiking or mountaineering trysts (at least in our city-bound dreams). Last night Eddie Bauer along with The Smile launched Bauer's fall '11 collection that was full of warm, quilted jackets and great layering pieces that would look right at home in the urban jungle as well as, well, a real jungle. Inspired by the late Eddie Bauer's life in Washington state's Olympic Peninsula, the palette was heavy on neutrals but pops of bright reds, orange, green and yellow featured in both mens and womenswear kept the clothing fresh and on-trend. The party also featured a short film directed by Phil Pinto, Slanted & Enchanted (trailer below), that tells the story of three sets of travelers while beautifully showcasing the collection. Enough said, click ahead to see some party shots!
