Last fall, Arc'Teryx's Veilance line debuted womenswear, which marked a new venture for the brand as well as a new direction for its apparel. Now, the label is introducing its debut Spring/Summer collection, which features plenty of seasonally appropriate pieces re-considered through Veilance's technical lens.
The label's creative Director, Taka Kasuga, has focused on colors including "Black," "Crater," and "Lilac Sky," for the palette, debuting 15 apparel and accessory pieces that are breathable, light, and most importantly, timeless.
The Veilance collection is slightly more refined than the average Arc'Teryx pieces, focusing more on its structure and minimal design than its predecessor. The concept behind this collection is a modern and modular wardrobe, which stand the test of time through all seasons.
As the Gorp movement continues to grow stronger, it is nice to see outdoor labels such as Arc'Teryx also create more design-oriented pieces that are just as functional as its colorful logo jackets, but appeal to an audience that is much wider.
Personally, I've always put style above function (I know, I'm the worst) but with a collection like this I'm able to do both, which is something I thoroughly appreciate.
The Veilance Women's Spring/Summer 2022 collection will be available starting April 13 across Arc'Teryx stores, as well as online and at various retailers worldwide.
