Arc’teryx Veilance: the Forefront of Design

Text by: Rip Slade

Arc

Arc’teryx launched Veilance in 2009 to create precision, performing apparel for a contemporary urban lifestyle. Veilance offers minimalist form, clean lines, and a city-bound aesthetic while drawing from the advanced engineering and technical ingenuity Arc’teryx is known for. The result is one of the world’s leading brands and looks.

Everything about Veilance leads back to their Vancouver origins. The clothes are designed in the Vancouver office. All material and tooling development is done in British Columbia’s lower mainland. Veilance patterns and prototypes are created and sewn in-house. The hand-crafted production happens mainly at the local Arc’teryx factory, where their own employees constantly test the new products in Vancouver’s demanding environment and cityscape.

Quality in Many Forms

This kind of conception-to-execution has spawned a legion of devotees among performance and aesthetic-obsessed fashion followers. To paraphrase one of Veilance’s designers, quality of materials and best innovations take precedence over all else. Pricing is tied to these two factors, creating investment pieces that work across multiple seasons and withstand the impulses of trends.

With an eye on greater corporate responsibility, Veilance only uses RDS certified down in their winter wear, a traceable third-party-monitored cultivation ensuring ethical standards. They also offer outerwear with 850 fill power, the loftiest warming factor in the consumer world. Articulation is a focal point in the tailoring of every piece, while their seam-sealing and zipper construction are groundbreaking.

And then there is Gore-Tex, which is the world’s leading weatherproof fabric engineers. Arc’teryx Veilance has developed a near-symbiotic relationship with Gore-Tex, unheard of in the supplier-buyer chain. Veilance clothes have some of the most advanced technically-designed membranes and face fabric weaves thanks to their links with Gore-Tex. It ties in with the idea of a long-term investment: these clothes are luxury in style, performance, and function, built to improve your life in any urban environment.

Why Veilance?

A host of past Veilance pieces have turned into prized classics. By designing their apparel lines three to four years before release, Veilance positions themselves to be future leaders of technical, high-performance menswear. Quality, innovation, constant real-world testing, access to leading technology, and a determiner of contemporary fashion and design: this is how Veilance has separated itself from the ever-growing pack of urban-centric lifestyle wear.
