In partnership with Grailed, Arc’teryx and outerwear company Arc’teryx will launch an exclusive capsule of archival products.
The digital-only release will include 7 pieces from archive collections that date back to 2001. These pieces have been fully restored by Arc’teryx’s ReBird program. The items will be sold at the original retail price of their launch. Grailed will match any proceeds to support ‘Climbers of Color’, a non-profit organization that promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion in the climbing/mountaineering community through the development of leaders of color.
Grailed CEO Arun Gupta stated that “We’re thrilled to partner with Arc’teryx and support their commitment to sustainable practices and evolving their initiatives regarding circularity. Shopping second-hand is a great way to incorporate sustainability in your daily life. This initiative marks an exciting step towards increasing the value of circularity within fashion.”
Arc’teryx’s ReBird program was launched in May 2021 to connect customers with ongoing initiatives in circularity. Each capsule was restored with proprietary raw materials and rebuilt according to company standards.
The brand will host an event in New York City to celebrate the launch. There, customers can view the 7 heritage pieces and make a purchase.
This collection will be available for purchase starting December 16th through Grailed. There are also 200 additional Arc’teryx listings that Grailed sellers have.
