Editor’s Notes: Errolson Hugh and his “elite guerilla military unit” of designers are the original purveyors of the techwear genre. Almost 20 years after the brand’s inception, ACRONYM continues to innovate, marrying technical performance with product-focused, contemporary fashion design. In short, they are the undisputed GOATs in their field.
Whether you are part of the Berlin-based label’s cult following or a curious bystander, you’ll never be disappointed by an impending collection. Scan over an ACRONYM lookbook, and you'll find environment-ready garments that mix the latest in sportswear and military technology. We’re talking investment pieces that are monochromatic, modular, futuristic, and objectively dope.
A personal favorite, this season's J16-GT jacket is a re-engineered and re-fitted version of the brand’s FW-809 item. The new super lightweight jacket is built with enhanced Gore-Tex® tech, designed to maximize breathability while providing uncompromised windproof and waterproof protection. The coat features improved ergonomics, that signature X-black patterning, and a smaller overall environmental footprint. Proprietary features like ACRONYM SOUND help secure your favorite pair of earbuds in place on the move. The J16-GT is topped off with a modular Storm Hood and EscapeZip technology for easy and quick removal.
For your lower half, ACRONYM has designed durable and weatherproof P41-DS pants. The techwear is designed to flow in accordance with the natural curve of your legs. You’ll have no problem carrying your gear as the P41-DS is made with 14 pockets (8 external and 6 internal). The trousers themselves are constructed from schoeller® 3XDRY — a material that can handle just about anything you throw at it. It is abrasion-resistant, water-repellent, moisture-managing, and fast-drying.
Another standout piece, ACRONYM’s NG4-PS Modular Power Stretch® neck gaiter, is here to provide face coverage on the coldest of days. As the name suggests, the gaiter is super stretchy, made using Polartec®. The fabric is highly breathable and quick drying but warm and insulating. It has the added benefit of making you look like a cyberpunk assassin.
You’ll have no problem adding ACRONYM’s Fall Winter 2021 collection into your seasonal rotation. It's technical outerwear that functions well both in the city (especially among your streetwear friends) and off the beaten path.
