Outdoor techwear brand Arc’teryx has been developing a new line called System_A, which appears to be a more fashion-focused line with a streetwear aesthetic and design language. Killy, a Canadian rapper sponsored by the brand, has shared a first look at one of the upcoming System_A pieces.
A recent IG post by Killy reveals a two-toned cream/tan GORE-TEX jacket from the SYSTEM_A line. Features include a stowable hood, zippered pockets on the abdomen and sleeves, bottom hem adjusters, and black Velcro strips on the arms that be used to place patches on. The patches shown in Killy’s post are called morale patches and are available at the Arc’teryx stores in specific cities. The “6ix” patch, for example, is from Arc’teryx Toronto, while the MTA subway-themed patch is from the Arc’teryx store in New York City.
The first pieces from the Arc’teryx System_A collection are expected to launch in August on the Arc’teryx website and select retailers. Check out Killy’s photos below and head over to Killy’s IG post to enter a contest for a chance to win the unreleased jacket.
