Sportswear label ASRV, which has for long bridged the gap between classic sportswear silhouettes and innovative new styles, has teamed up with the DuPont™ Kevlar® Team as part of their ongoing mission to push the boundaries of performance and develop the next generation of sportswear. For their first product line, the ASRV x Kevlar® CityTrek Collection will consist of a variety of incredibly durable, highly reflective bags, designed with the notion of urban commuting in mind. The collaboration will feature a Backpack, Crossbody Bag, Duffle Bag, and Weekender Bag.
To design a line of bags that are fully optimized for the active urban lifestyle, ASRV worked with the DuPont™ Kevlar® team to develop a sophisticated material that contains a dark grey finish in the daylight but transforms into complete hi-vis reflectivity at night. This material comes along with 10k waterproofing for navigating all weather conditions and the bags are constructed with Kevlar® K29 fibers for extreme durability and abrasion-resistance, so it’s built to last. The internal lining is 100% ripstop nylon and the bags are sewn with Kevlar® brand threading for added strength and longevity. Each one finishes with natural leather base panels, matte black custom zipper hardware on the main pockets and embroidered patch logos.
“By taking our knowledge of functional design and combining it with the Kevlar® Brand’s advanced fabric technologies, we can create truly unique products that no one else has tried yet,” said ASRV’s Head of Innovation, Jay Barton. It seems with more collaborations slated already for the future, ASRV is just scratching the surface of what’s to come.
