Following up on the designer’s collaborative backpack-infused outerwear, Junya Watanabe reunites with The North Face for an outerwear set crafted from the Dolomite sleeping bag. A jacket and coat cleverly revamp the quilting construction into warm layering pieces, repurposing the yellow outer and grey inner from the sleeping bag into a bi-color makeup. Plenty of zippers, pockets, buttons and pull tabs ensure maximum functionality, but the main feature the items’ transformable capabilities: by inverting the coat or jacket, they can be folded neatly into an included bag, which can be stowed inside a hidden inner compartment when not in use.

The collaborative Dolomite layers can be purchased at select Junya Watanabe or The North Face stockists on August 3.

Elsewhere in Japan, THE NORTH FACE PURPLE LABEL showcased its own Fall/Winter 2018 goods.
