For the first issue of Six Stories of GORE-TEX Products, the makers of GORE-TEX, Gore, spoke with luminaries like Hiroki Nakamura of visvim and White Mountaineering’s Yosuke Aizawa. Last year saw the release of the second issue, which offered interviews with brands like Off-White™, New Balance and Norse Projects.
Six Stories of GORE-TEX Products Vol. 3, the latest issue, boasts dialogues with a half-dozen more creatives: Gore spoke with Takanori Kasuga (Arc’teryx Veilance), Carlo Rivetti (Stone Island), Katz Yamada (ASICS), Miguel Fluxà (Camper), Paul Mittleman (Converse) and — for the second time — Eiichiro Homma of THE NORTH FACE PURPLE LABEL & nanamica, along with The North Face Japan’s Ryo Takanashi. Topics range from form vs. functionality, to the purpose of GORE-TEX fabric in each label’s creations. The book is a “celebration of these processes, ” according to Gore, with each brands’ distinct design philosophies showcased alongside a variety of GORE-TEX-infused goods, which include ASICS GEL-Mai sneakers and HYKE x The North Face Fall/Winter 2018 goods.
Stay tuned for more news on Six Stories of GORE-TEX Products Vol. 3‘s release. Most recently, Off-White™ nearly sold out its new GORE-TEX collection in mere days.
