Arc’teryx Equipment, the global design company specializing in technical high-performance apparel and equipment, continues its retail expansion in the United States with a new Manhattan location, which features a rebranded micro-store concept, Arc’type, centered around the brand’s most renowned designs.
This latest store, which will open across from Central Park on the Upper West Side, joins four other Arc’teryx New York stores, including Arc’teryx Factory Outlet in Woodbury, the Arc’teryx brand store in Soho, and the two Arc’type stores in the West Village and the Flatiron District.
“Originally referred to as Icon stores, our curated, neighbourhood-focussed concept will now be known as Arc’type,” said Delaney Schweitzer, chief commercial officer, Arc’teryx. “Like our products, the name Arc’type is uniquely ours. The products available at these stores truly represent who we are – the designs are perfect archetypes of the brand.”
The Arc’type assortment includes Arc’teryx’s first jacket designed more than 20 years ago, the Alpha SV. This fall, customers will find the brand’s first women’s parka, the Patera Parka, which has sold out every season since it was introduced in 2012. Guests who are new to the brand can get a sense of what makes Arc’teryx a leader in performance outerwear, while returning guests will find their favorite and most celebrated designs easily.
