10 Years of
Anniversary campaign shot on location in Utah
PHOTOGRAPHY: Vincent Fournier
Since Veilance’s introduction in Fall/Winter 2009, the past decade has been marked by an immense knowledge of technical garment construction, brought to final form through relentless commitment to research and experimentation.
Over ten years, Veilance’s core purpose has not wavered in offering garment solutions that perform in any climate and environment, allowing the wearer to exist in any scenario uninhibited by their clothing.
At the foundation of Veilance’s climate controlling systems is GORE-TEX, whose material technology has offered protection dating back to the first successful moon landing in 1969. When Apollo 11 landed on the moon carrying astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins, GORE was along for the ride. The astronauts installed seismographic equipment, connecting to the lunar surface with GORE-TEX cables. They were ideal for the mission because they were durable, lightweight, and could easily stand up to the extreme temperatures of outer space. Since then, GORE-TEX has been viewed as synonymous with wind and water protection, and has remained a staple of Veilance’s inclement weather offering.
To document 10 years of technical innovation and material advancement, Veilance partnered with fine art photographer Vincent Fournier, who previously detailed the scientific and utopian aesthetic of spacial exploration through his Space Project, shot at Mars Desert Research station in Utah. Says Fournier, “Space exploration is humanity’s great adventure, a leap into the unknown towards a dark light beyond Earth’s protective atmosphere and the gravity that keeps us there.”
