Jil Sander and high-end Canadian technical apparel and equipment brand Arc’teryx have unveiled a collaborative capsule for Jil Sander+, the company’s line dedicated to active life outdoors. 

The Autumn/Winter 2021-22 collection consists of three jackets - one unisex, one for women, and one for men, a pair of bibbed trousers and a one-piece suit for both genders.

Throughout the Jil Sander+ x Arc’teryx collection, creative directors Lucie and Luke Meier incorporated influences from skiing, snowboarding and mountain sports, with technical fabrics such as 3L Gore-Tex alongside leather overlays as well as new shapes and silhouettes.

All of the items come in the collection’s colour palette, which features classic black and white as well as a blue-grey colour inspired by glaciers.

In a statement, the Meiers said they chose Arc’teryx for their 30-year commitment to craftsmanship, product integrity, and functionality, to authentic performance and innovation in their search for a strong partner to produce exceptional purpose-built apparel,

Lucie and Luke Meier, Creative Directors of Jil Sander said: "We both grew up spending time in the mountains enjoying winter sports but we could never find garments that balanced high performance with high aesthetic quality. Eventually, with Arc’teryx, a company we have always admired for their rigor and commitment to research, we had the chance to design them."

Complementing the brand’s main collection, Jil Sander + seasonally adds a series of products made for life in nature, for both men and women. The Jil Sander + collections blend the sense of luxury, comfort, and design of Jil Sander with honest, authentic items.

The collection will be available online at,, as well as Jil Sander and Arc’teryx stores and at select retailers worldwide from 10 November.
