Over the past few years, it’s no secret that technical and outdoor clothing has become more and more prevalent in contemporary streetwear. At the head of this trend that’s showing no signs of slowing down is the Canadian mountaineering brand Arc’Teryx, founded in 1989 by local climbers taking the now iconic “dead bird” logo from the prehistoric bird it also shares its namesake with, the Archaeopteryx lithographica.
Arc’Teryx creates apparel and accessories with the ethos of “simple solutions to complex challenges”, ensuring as little distraction as possible from the wearer to fully immerse themselves in the moment of doing, no matter how harsh the weather. With equal measures of art and science, the result is reliable and effective outdoor garments with a unique, sleek style that has seen the brand push far beyond the parameters of the climbing world and into the wardrobes of high-end fashionistas, musicians and cultural icons as a go-to for outerwear, layering and accessories. For this shoot, we took some of our favourite pieces out to the environment that best suits them, the great outdoors.
