This past weekend HAVEN Vancouver played host to the first Arc’teryx Veilance Trunkshow. Guests were given the opportunity to get a first hand look at the FW15 collection. Below is a small re-cap of the event that went down.
Every season Stone Island produces a highly reflective jacket comprised of a unique material hand coated with thousands of glass microspheres; For F/W 2013, the Italian brand offers an updated iteration of last years model. The Mesh Reflective jacket utilizes a durable polyester/ nylon mesh membrane outer that is water and wind resistant, and is filled with the finest down for optimal thermal insulation. Functional features include: a color contrasting hood, ribbed inner sleeves, drawstring adjustable bottom hem, 4 front facing pockets and center front zip and snap button fastening.
Continuing from the previous nonnative Dweller Pant product profile, we are again featuring the subtle yet thorough details by the Japanese clothier. The SS13 footwear lineup including the perfect summer shoes in the Drifter Suede Deck Shoes, and the timeless Dweller Trainer Hi and Deck Shoes.
The Spanish-made “Drifter” Suede Deck Shoes
The perforated cow suede upper maximizes ventilation and lightens the weight of the shoe (13.3oz) without compromising the quality.
The reinforced genuine leather ankle collar and insoles increase comfort and durability.
The hand-stitching around the midsole adds authenticity and the hemp woven heel and midsole strengthen the structure of the shoe.
The integrity and the stability of the outsole is displayed as it is able to withstand bending without distorting the shape of the shoe.
The Japanese-made “Dweller” Trainers Hi and Deck Trainers
The signature round shoelaces equipped on all nonnative trainers allow easier untying motion as well as preventing the twisting of the laces.
The smaller toe caps and bulkier outer wrap designs pay tribute to the classic 1970’s Converse Chuck Taylor silhouette.
The faded effects on the overdyed canvas and metal eyelets bring some vintage quality to the shoe.
The siping pattern and the gum outsole allow additional traction.
Removable insole provides extra comfort and the elastic band between the tongue and the sole maintains the integrity and shape of the shoe.
All nonnative footwear is available now in-stores and online.
