Recently, Jil Sander + shared a preview of the collaboration with the Arc’teryx brand, and now they have shown the entire collection. It combines elements of winter sports, including skiing and snowboarding.
The capsule included 3 jackets: men, women and unisex, as well as striped trousers and a one-piece suit. All pieces combine the aesthetics of Jil Sander with the functionality of Arc’teryx, while technical fabrics such as 3L Gore-Tex are used alongside leather. All items are designed in classic black and white colors, as well as a blue-gray shade inspired by glaciers.

“We love nature and mountains, and working on clothes that we could wear in these places was special for us,” Luke and Lucy admitted. Arc’teryx, in turn, brought the necessary knowledge and experience to the collaboration to create high-tech products, which was extremely necessary for the implementation of the collection’s ideas. Thanks to this collaboration, Jil Sander + x Arc’teryx clothing is functional, yet stylish and sophisticated in design.
The release of the collection is scheduled for November 10. The items will be available at Jil Sander online stores, Arc’teryx and select retail stores around the world.
