ARCH TEMPLE collaborates with like-minded artists and designers who share a similar vision and purpose. Together, we delve into unchartered territories in an effort to create unique and aesthetic products, with a twist of the brands DNA & character.
It all started in 1981, when the founder Helge Petersen hung in a parachute between the sky and the ground and wondered why his clothes were wet while the parachute was dry.
With a background in the Hunter Corps and many years of experience as a runner, Helge used the parachute to create an innovative range of functional styles with a focus on detail and comfort. At the time, the Hunter Corps excelled at jumping from great heights with low openings. Three decades later, HALO is a tribute to the founder and Newline's history.
HALO brings functionality and urban aesthetics to the next level - strongly inspired by the Danish Air Force.
