GRIND: THE NORTH FACE PURPLE LABEL 2012 Fall/Winter Outerwear Editorial
Taking the title “Cycling Style,” this latest look at THE NORTH FACE’s Japan-based PURPLE LABEL line shows that it is not just about climbing mountains when it comes to its clothes. Shot in conjunction with and around the nanamica Daikanyama store, four new jackets have been chosen for our perusal. First up are two mountain parkas, both crafted from the tried and tested 65/35 Bayhead cloth. This material gets its name from the 65% polyester and 35% cotton mix that it is made up of. Next up are two garments that follow a more military influenced styling, with an MA-1 design crafted out of PERTEX, a material that seems to be becoming more popular with the streetwear brands, alongside an interesting camo affair. This jacket is reversible, with the optional choice of having a wool or weatherproof outer shell.
