It’s no secret that Arc’teryx Equipment’s staggeringly-independent Veilance brand has gained significant traction over the past few years; but, unbeknownst to some, the company was actually founded a decade ago by then-CEO Tyler Jordan and designer Conroy Nachtigall, of Arc’teryx fame. To celebrate the company’s 10-year anniversary as a leader in innovative, technically-inclined outerwear, they’ve decided to team up with one of their favorite fine art photographers, Vincent Fournier, for an otherworldly campaign.
While 2019 was still in its infancy, Fournier was contracted by Veilance to shoot the company’s upcoming FW19 and SS20 collections. Drawing upon his unique inspirations, styles, and creative ambitions, he set out to Utah’s vast desert, where extraterrestrial terrain was plentiful, to create an homage to space exploration — something which Veilance, and Fournier, credit as the driving force behind the company’s bespoke attire. The shoot’s subjects are seen wandering haphazardly, in an almost ethereal daze, while clad in the company’s newly-released Dinitz Comp jacket and sweater, Frame polo, Dyadic pant, and Node down jacket. Like most of Veilance’s offerings, each piece has been constructed from the finest technical materials, including three-layer, waterproof GORE-TEX, premium wool blend, and water-repellent cotton/nylon poplin. Head to the company’s website, where the Fall/Winter Collection — priced at $150 and up — has just made its debut.
