Coming into 2021, there’s a lot to be said about the biggest collaborations of the year and why Gucci x The North Face may have been the biggest of them all. As if the first drop wasn’t enough, Gucci and The North Face are back together for a second set, launching just before winter.
In a beautifully illustrated campaign revealed exclusively to Highsnobiety, Gucci & The North Face’s latest line received a dreamlike treatment by twin photographers and directors Jalan and Gabriel Dorimel, who photographed models amid the ethereal landscapes of Iceland.
Retro TNF gear inspired Gucci to create the 130-piece collaborative collection, which transforms old-school Nuptse jackets, quilt coats, wading pants, and shoulder bags with bright organic patterns, full monograms, and plentiful co-branding.
Eco-friendly boats are also showing up throughout, from “responsible” bottom insulation certified to ECONYL that replaces traditional nylon.
On top of that, any Gucci x TNF purchases will be packaged to reduce waste through the use of cardboard and paper from “sustainably managed forest sources,” Gucci says, as well as reducing reliance on unnecessary shopping bags and boxes.
You can shop for select pieces of Gucci x TNF collab on the Gucci website, select Gucci stores, and The North Face in New York, Tokyo, Beijing and Shanghai.
To get the full experience, though, you’ll have to visit the themed popups scheduled for mid-January at Gucci’s 5th Avenue, Aspen, Chicago, and Toronto stores. In the meantime, check out the entire Gucci x TNF collection in detail below.
From oversized puffy coats to insulated jackets, there’s a Gucci x TNF piece for any winter occasion. Plus, the larger garments are perfect canvases for displaying the lush natural prints of the collaboration.
Who would have thought that some of the best pieces of the collection would be knitwear? Goodbye ugly Christmas sweaters!
Blouses and dresses
Gucci has truly mastered the cottagecore ethos and brought TNF along for the ride, masterfully pinning her romantic merchandise with silver studs.
When you want a Gucci x TNF rep every day without layering in the big sprayer, the adorable illustrations printed over these staples will do the trick.
As cool as the plaid track pants are, the initials and pigtail mountain pants take the cake.
Hike up the mountain in the Gucci x TNF hiking boot, then slide into the fleece slides at base camp for the ultimate in comfort.
Daypacks, shoulder bags and slings – what more could you want? Well, maybe it was Gucci x TNF Nalgene.
Hats and accessories
Ditch the fit with a matching Gucci x TNF cap, preferably a bucket hat with oversized straps to keep your cap secure.
