We were thrilled to see several bags and packs made with our lightweight, waterproof, and durable X-Pac® laminates accessorize the new Fall/Winter 2024 Woolrich collection designed by renowned American designer, Todd Snyder at the recent Pitti Umo show in Florence.
It was announced last fall that Woolrich and Todd Snyder, would collaborate to create a more premium collection under the name Woolrich Black Label by Todd Snyder that will blend the heritage of the brand with a more modern aesthetic – mixing fashion, functionality, and an outdoor feel.
In a recent article in WWD, Snyder was quoted, “I have always had the deepest admiration for American heritage brands and consistently seek to work with the best,” Snyder said. “I wore Woolrich as a kid and was proud to design with their fabrics at my various jobs in the fashion world. Woolrich is a prime example of a company which has deep roots, and I’m excited to work with their vast archive — an archive that is rich in styles that have stood the test of time. My hope is to usher in the next era for Woolrich and extend their legacy well into the future.”
According to Taylor North, Head of Technical Fabrics, Dimension-Polyant, X-Pac® fabrics are increasingly being sought after by performance fashion brands for its unique design aesthetic.
“We are grateful to Woolrich and Todd Snyder for their fantastic vision and design,” said North. We are happy to partner with iconic brands and designers who bring our X-Pac® fabrics to life!”
