On Thursday 31 August at 10.00am, The North Face® in collaboration with Commes des Garçons designer Junya Watanabe will release a limited edition fall/winter collection of ‘reconstructed’ outwear and apparel in The North Face®’s lifestyle store at 8 Carnaby Street, London.
With a new take on the The North Face®’s iconic products, the Commes des Garçons collaboration reimagines the form of The North Face®’s Basecamp Duffel bag. In this limited collection, Watanabe deconstructs the functional design of the Basecamp Duffel bag and uses it as a foundation to create daring interpretations of classic outerwear, including hoodies, jackets and parkas.
Edouard Gros, Lifestyle Product Merchant, The North Face® EMEA says: “This collaboration between The North Face® and Commes des Garçons is a first for the brands and gives a new angle to our classic designs; with the functionality of the Basecamp Duffel being redirected for a brand new range of outwear.”
The North Face®’s unique Carnaby store will be the only TNF store in Europe to house the drop, alongside limited wholesale partners. The store is the only dedicated space to its lifestyle collection in Europe, housing products from its capsule and Japanese inspired collections. Further exciting one-off drops are scheduled throughout the coming fall/winter season.
