Jil Sander will be collaborating with Arc'teryx for a new capsule to be released next fall. The forthcoming capsule will include men’s and women’s garments for skiing, snowboarding, and mountain sports.
Jil Sander — fronted by husband-and-wife creative directors Luke and Lucie Meier — is known for its precise minimalism. Meanwhile, Vancouver-based label Arc'teryx is better recognized for its technical, high-performance apparel, and for being one of the key brands in the outdoors wear come-up of the past few years with co-signs from Frank Ocean, Travis Scott, Virgil Abloh, and Drake.
Recently, Arc'teryx has been experimenting with different collaborations with the likes of graffiti artist Shawn Crawford in benefit of the Brooklyn Bail Fund, and a tie-dye T-shirt capsule with Hotel Radio Paris.
Although it will be nearly a year before we see the partnership materialize, we can hope that by fall 2021 skiing holidays, mountain sports, and reasons to dress up again will be back on the agenda, vaccine pending.
