Following the drop of an expansive collaboration at the top of the year, The North Face and KAWS have come together once again for another team-up. Centered around celebrated styles, the celebrated American artist offers his latest reimagination of functional wares and accessories with his disruptive visual style.
The second collaboration from KAWS and The North Face continues to push the perspective of what technical and iconic styles can be. KAWS’ abstract patterns are carried on to play with perception and visibility in new tonal color expressions and texture plays on the TNF’s Expedition system.
Originally introduced in 1990, the Expedition System is a technically advanced integrated clothing system designed for exploration from the Himalayas to Antarctica. Through unrelentingly testing by some of the world’s most accomplished athletes, the Nuptse, Denali, Mountain Jacket, and Himalayan Parka, featured in the collaboration, have become synonymous with exploring the peaks of Earth.
Leading the second collaboration from KAWS and The North Face is a selection of men’s and women’s styles, including the ‘95 Denali Jacket, and ‘94 Himalayan Parka. Accompanying offerings include luggage, soft accessories, and footwear like the ThermoBall Traction V Mule.
Priced between $55 and $550 USD, the latest The North Face XX KAWS collection will be available online, at select TNF locations, and select retailers beginning October 25.
