A New Book Looks at the Relationship Between GORE-TEX and Brands Such as Off-White™ and Norse Projects

Also featuring pieces from Bunney, ACRONYM and New Balance.

As technical materials have become increasingly common in fashion, GORE-TEX has emerged as arguably the most important material manufacturer in the game. The high quality and durable fabric and its relationship with some of fashion’s biggest brands is also now the subject of a new book, the follow up to the 2014 project which focused on GORE-TEX and the Japanese labels who have worked with it. Six Stories of GORE-TEX Products Vol. 2 will take a more international approach, covering brands such as Off-White™, Norse Projects and ACRONYM and their work with the material.

The book will be presented for the first time on August 9 to coincide Copenhagen Fashion Week, where it will be displayed alongside two Norse Projects GORE-TEX jackets and the brand’s new collaboration with adidas.

Before the launch event, refresh your memory of Norse Projects’ upcoming “Layers” collab with adidas, which incorporates the technical material.
