In an interesting new project, Acronym designer Errolson Hugh has gotten together with Italian brand Herno. Together they present Herno Laminar, an outerwear collection using Gore-Tex fabrics.
“A capsule collection comprising 8 styles for men and 8 styles for women that perform well at high altitudes but with a decidedly urban look.
16 elements inspired to meet the needs of daily life, from business to leisure, produced using extremely sophisticated techniques such as thermo-ultrasound seams, combined with laminated GORE-TEX®, synonymous of both waterproof and breathing fabrics. This is the new uncompromising Laminar world created by Herno.
Laminar, the name given to the project, refers to the phenomenon that in physics means the “optimization of the flow” – there are no cross currents and the particles flow in a orderly way. This project is the result of two years hard work, not only on the product itself, but also to develop production techniques adapted to the use of such complex materials.”
They call it Sartorial Engineering, which we find a rather good description for the fusion of technical materials and Hugh’s know-how with the history of the Herno brand. Expect a release of the collection later this year.
A further look follows after the jump.
