Designed and built in California, ArchiTec is performance apparel for the modern adventurer. The inspiration behind the ArchiTec brand came from our desire to travel the world, experience the outdoors and to look great doing it.
We incorporate sustainable, modern design with premium technical fabrics that are meant to last a lifetime. We design for any adventure and strive to deliver products and experience that support the spirit of discovery and experiencing other cultures.
Each capsule collection connects to a unique travel destination. We started this brand out of our love for travel and desire to experience new cultures.
SEE THE WORLD
EACH COLLECTION INSPIRED BY A PLACE IN TIME
We select locations based on design and cultural influences, materials sourcing, outdoor activities, moving landscapes and unique food and drink. We product test in each location and share our experiences along the way.
ABOUT THE NZ COLLECTION
For our fall collection we traveled to New Zealand, to build our collection from Farm to Wear. It is important to us to ensure ethical and sustainable production of our materials, so we went to meet the growers who produce our merino wool.
Most of this collection is based on superior merino wool fabric from Global Merino who buys all their wool from sheep stations in the central South Island. We were hosted for a night at Glenbrook Station by the owners and got to meet the sheep!
This collection epitomizes our brand with its clean design, high performance fabric and versatility that can travel from the Routeburn Track, to mountain biking in the Queenstown, up Mt. Cook, to wine tasting in Nelson and dining out in Auckland.
About the baja collection
WHEN IN DOUBT, THE ANSWER IS ALWAYS BAJA...
As one of our life ethos is to seek out new places and adventures, Baja is the only place we return to every year (twice sometimes). Todos Santos is untouched with one street light, great surf and beaches, mezcal margaritas and enough expats to demand decent coffee.
This setting was the perfect inspiration for our premier SS18 Baja Collection. These core pieces are casual yet have stylistic elements that allow them to go from mountain to beach to dinner at Benno at the Hotel San Cristobel.
