Montreal’s Vallier SS22 latest collection maintains their output of technical urban apparel.
The Canadian brand’s newest collection continues a fusion of sleek, smart and technical, mixing responsible fabrics like organic cotton with technical influences like thermofused mesh linings, Pertex Quantum yarns and bonded nylon padding.
Vallier’s aesthetic output is clean, sharp and minimalist, letting details shine in the place of overt branding.
Pioneers of Montreal’s technical urban apparel, Vallier’s use of 50 D Pertex Quantum fabric, super lightweight polar fleece and the smart use of adaptable spandex blends for accessories cement Vallier as forward-thinking designers.
This is the sort of output you’d expect from a brand hot off the press from a collaboration with Castelli, one of Italy’s premium cycling brands.
The brand boasts significant environmental commitments too, with the use of OEKO-TEX® standard 100 certified fabrics, adherence to Bluesign® criteria, and Global Organic Textile Standards. Vallier creates products that breathe responsibility and purpose. And while these elements are far safer for the environment, they find their own strengths in craft too, ensuring quality and premium feel.
Vallier’s SS22 renews its core design ethos by bringing new colours and new fabrics into play. Specifically, Vallier’s focus has been on gender-neutralising their clothing, creating a range of multi-faceted and adaptable pieces that better summarise the world we’re living in – and the future we’re soon to inhabit.
Continuing a trend from their last collection, Simon Duhamel skillfully uses lighting to create a play of colours that highlights the collection’s neutral tones and hues.
