The North Face and LA-based art and design collective Brain Dead have once again joined forces to bring us a new collection of stylish and functional outdoor clothing. The FW2020 crossover collection is dedicated to rock climbing, launching in the same month as Global Climbing Day, and features new renditions of the classic The North Face jackets drawing inspiration from the 1976 Mountain Parka and 1989 Placket Pullover Classic Fleece.
Brain Dead’s contribution to the new pieces includes disruptive, doodle-like graphics which take the practical jackets to a whole new level. The collection also includes sportswear, zip-up shirts, shorts, bags, a bucket hat, and climbing gear. This time around – and for the first time ever – The North Face x Brain Dead items will be available in tailored womenswear sizes instead of just unisex items.
The new collection will be available at specified The North Face stores from 28 August and registration for a raffle will begin on 25 August. For those interested in learning more about Global Climbing Day, make sure to check out the dedicated webpage and watch the replay of the YouTube conversation.
