    Being located in Vancouver, Canada, the brand HAVEN faces some harsh weather conditions throughout the year. By infusing everyday garments with discreet functionality, their garments serve a simple mission of providing comfort, style and performance at the same time. This season, the brand introduced the pinnacle technology with our GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY fabrics to provide complete waterproof, windproof and breathable peak protection as a solution to the demands of the Canadian climate.

    "For us the GORE-TEX brand is one of the most meaningful and innovative material suppliers in the world. This partnership allows us to take our own products to a whole new level."- HAVEN co-founder Arthur Chmielewski

    The HAVEN Fall/Winter 2022 GORE-TEX GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY Collection consists of two jackets and two accessories that represent our icon pieces for the season. HAVEN optimizes urban functionality with their modernized take on an outdoor shell jacket, car coat, baseball cap and bucket hat. Though the offering is small, the development process was intensive, spanning several seasons from conceptualization, patterning, and early prototypes, to multiple rounds of samples and rigorous testing.

    HAVEN also expanded their range of GORE-TEX INFINIUMTM WINDSTOPPER® garments, pairing its lightweight, windproof and extremely breathable technology with the lightweight warmth of PrimaLoft® Gold synthetic insulation alongside a versatile, all-season, 3-layer softshell fabric. These sleek technical fabrics are complimented with a range of premium natural fibres and fabrics which prioritize rich texture, next-to skin comfort and rugged durability.

    After exploring several factories around the globe, the Canadian brand discovered a factory in the south of Japan with the capabilities to build waterproof products that also met the high standards in quality and finishing. The factory handles all aspects of construction, utilizing specialized GORE-TEX specific machinery to cut, laminate, sew, and seam seal the garments.


    For the first time, HAVEN in partnership with the GORE-TEX brand, will be holding a special Los Angeles Pop-Up shop from November 18th to November 20th 2022. Located in the Arts District of Downtown LA, the temporary shop will feature the HAVEN Fall/Winter 2022 collection alongside an original installation experience and photo exhibit introducing the HAVEN Field Testing Program. We kindly invite you to join us for the opening reception on November 17th from 7pm to 10pm, featuring music by Tsugu Itagaki and refreshments from Asahi, Topo Chico and Madre Mezcal.
