Herschel Supply Releases Partnership Offering with GORE-TEX® Brand
VANCOUVER, August 25, 2016 – Global accessories brand Herschel Supply introduces a special partnership offering with GORE-TEX® product technology for Fall 2016. This two-tier headwear collection is engineered for urban commutes and outdoor exploration, combining the most trusted name in lightweight, waterproof and breathable performance, with a refined modern aesthetic.
Making its commercial debut in 1976, the GORE-TEX® brand transformed the world of textile technology with their patented membrane, a virtually weightless synthetic layer with billions of microscopic pores. 1/20,000 the size of a water droplet, these pores allow moisture molecules to escape while protecting against the elements — a waterproof and breathable blend that revolutionized the outerwear industry.
Drawing from a shared spirit of innovation and uncompromising quality, staple Herschel Supply silhouettes feature durable two-layer GORE-TEX® fabric construction, celebrating this iconic name in performance apparel with a bold all-over print.
An additional offering of minimalist headwear styles applies bonded three-layer GORE-TEX® product technology, including a dependable ripstop exterior, an inner membrane and a robust GORE-SEAM® taped liner. Finished with a transparent Herschel Supply silicone logo, the classic Albert cap is joined by the Rambler full-brim hat, which is new for Fall.
The GORE-TEX® Collection for Fall 2016 is available at global stockists and at herschelsupply.com, which ships internationally.
