It's hard to believe that it's almost been a year since the first teaser announcement of the upcoming Jil Sander x Arc'teryx collaboration.

Over the past 11 months, speculation has been running wild as fans clamor to try and figure out how Jil Sander's minimalist approach to tailoring will translate onto Arc's high-performance, ergonomic design approach.

In the initial reveal, Jil Sander creative directors Luke and Lucie Meier indicated that the collaboration will include men’s and women’s garments for skiing, snowboarding, and mountain sports.

Though the hype train slowed substantially after the initial reveal in late 2020, it began ramping up in recent weeks after a JS-specific sizing page suddenly appeared on the Arc website in October (it has since been removed).

And now it's official: we can expect a global release via stockists like SSENSE on November 10. A private preview event is being held on November 8.

The same day, Arc'teryx and Jil Sander launched a commemorative film shot by Stephen Kidd and scored by Biosphere, marking the countdown to the collection's imminent launch.

With co-signs from Frank Ocean, Aminé, Virgil Abloh, Drake, Palace, and plenty of indie customizers, it's about time that Arc'teryx got its high fashion debut, unofficial Off-White™ collab notwithstanding.

It might even be the biggest Jil Sander moment of the year, though it depends what price bracket you're aligned with.

Over the past year and change, Arc'teryx has been experimenting with collaborations with the likes of graffiti artist Shawn Crawford, Hotel Radio Paris, some in-store artist co-signs and even debuted System_A, its more fashion-forward sub-labl.

It also recently opened its first ReBird service center in New York.
