Veilance is the luxury fashion wing of Arc’teryx, which blends outdoor technology and ergonomics into versatile clothes for the city-dwelling person. Everything is tied back to a stark and vaguely mysterious aesthetic. Basically what we have here is apparel equally suited for biking to work, conducting meetings and looking cool on the street.
To learn more about Veilance, we caught up with designer Lars McKinnon and Arc’teryx lifestyle design director Takanori Kasuga. Topics discussed: professional histories, the nature of Gore-Tex and the unrelenting design mission of Veilance.
