ARTILECT, a technical apparel brand focused on performance, innovation and responsibility, today introduces its FW 2022 range which expands the brand’s A/SYS (ARTILECT Systems) approach to include three new high-performance categories – Insulayer, Vaporlayer, and Missionlayer – each with a range of products for women and men. The new A/SYS categories build atop the foundation of ARTILECT’s collection of Nuyarn-powered merino Baselayer (A/SYS-1) and Nextlayer (A/SYS-2), introduced across the globe in 2021.
Since inception, ARTILECT has forged a new path with a goal to move beyond the current state of technical apparel with new designs, technologies, and materials that set new standards and align with the ARTILECT Systems (A/SYS) DNA, a skin-out approach to optimize thermoregulation, breathability and performance.
“Our FW 2022 line represents the culmination of our team’s many decades of experience in the pursuit of performance apparel innovation, focused specifically on the realization of our full systems-based A/SYS collection,” said ARTILECT founder and co-CEO, Trent Bush. “The FW22 ARTILECT Systems collection demonstrates our obsession with the future of performance and sustainability, and we’re introducing an array of groundbreaking, world-first technologies from many of the biggest and most innovative suppliers including Nuyarn, YKK, ALLIED Feather + Down, EMPEL, Primaloft, Trizar, Toray, Lifekey, and lavalan. We are also very proud to be one of the first performance apparel brands to be completely PFA/PFC free in our fabrics, with no ePTFE, C6 DWR, or other “forever chemicals” in our shells, insulations, or linings.”
ARTILECT’s FW 2022 Collection has already been awarded for innovation: the Silverton Shell winning the Slide x OTS 2022 Award for Best Software, and the Formation 3L Shell being recognized by Outside Business Journal as one of the Top 50 hottest new products for Fall/Winter 2022.
Working with among the most innovative partners in the world, ARTILECT demonstrates its commitment to forging a new path by integrating multiple first-to-market technologies in the Fall/Winter 2022 Collection, including YKK’s user-repairable and PU conceal zippers, ALLIED ExpeDRY 700FP ultra high-performance active-drying down, Trizar space-certified technology for heat management, and High & Dry, ARTILECT’s exclusive 30k/30k waterproof/breathable technologies that reinvent technical apparel performance in both 2- and 3-layer constructions.
Also integrated for performance and sustainability are YKK Touchlink fasteners with Lifekey safety functionality (a first for a North American brand), lavalan wool insulation, EMPEL super hydrophobic water protection, Toray stretch fabrics, Primaloft BIO performance fabric, and RECCO reflectors.
