The high fashion world is no stranger to cool collabs and the latest lust-worthy new partnership comes from the House of Gucci. The luxury Italian brand has paired up with the outdoor experts at The North Face on a collection of RTW and accessories for both men and women that is as chic and stylish as it is functional. A seemingly unlikely duo, this new partnership works incredibly well, fusing both brands commitments to innovation and sustainability. The collection is inspired by adventure seekers and investigates the spirit of exploration and self-discovery. Both brands aim to empower people by allowing them to celebrate and explore ones own characteristics and personalities. Travel is an integral part of self-discovery and thus Gucci x The North Face was born.
The retro-esque, 70's-inspired collection is revealed in new images that were shot by photographer Daniel Shea in the Alps. The breath-taking scenery of forests and mountain peaks is the perfect backdrop to showcase the colorful and creative pieces from the collection. The collection spans many categories, featuring products for men and women as well as unique outdoor goods which are quintessential to The North Face, such as tents and sleeping bags.
As for the bags, this collection further cements Alessandro Michele's commitment to the environment by utilizing ECONYL®, which is a nylon fabric sourced from regenerated materials. The color palette is bold and bright, inspired by the 70's and hand-selected from The North Face's archives. Pieces are shown in a variety of motifs from Gucci's iconic House motifs to various versions of The North Face x Gucci logo print. The collection includes backpacks and belt bags in various sizes.
