Where the runway meets the street

We got a sneak peek at one of the jackets from Arc’teryx Veilance’s spring/summer 2012 collection. We also managed to catch a jetlagged Conroy Nachtigall for a few quick questions, see his answers after the leap.


Describe your brand in one sentence
Technically focused performance menswear.

How long’s the brand been around?
We launched Fall 09

What do you think of Pitti?
Pitti’s been great, this is our second time here and the response has been great. it’s been really helpful for our brand.

Favourite piece from the collection and why?
My favourite piece is the diatic hoody because it sums up the spring collection. It’s a combination of both natural fibered fabrics and high tech synthetic fabrics in a lightweight versatile piece but with some dynamic lines.

Tell us something interesting about yourself that has nothing to do with clothing.
Oh, that ones really hard! I try not to get caught up in the hockey fever in Vancouver! Sorry I’m totally jetlagged. (editors note: considering the happenings in Vancouver last night, not getting caught up hockey fever as a Canadian is amazing)
