The Japan exclusive THE NORTH FACE PURPLE LABEL — the sub line helmed by nanamica‘s Eiichiro Homma — will be making its stateside debut at the end of the month.
Up for grabs will be new garments informed by the label’s recent Japanese Fall/Winter 2018 offerings, which sees a bevy of winter-heavy outerwear options and cozy layering essentials. Injected into each look is Japanese sensibilities mixed with The North Face’s philosophy, creating a perfect balance between technical and casual-wear garments. As an added note, each style has been adjusted to match “western sizing.”
Set to release in two separate drops, the first will include winter outwear along with luggage such as the Polyester Ripstop Sierra Parka, 65/35 Long Serow, 65/35 Mountain Short Down Parka, and Down Muffler. Luggage will include the Medium Day Pack, 3Way Duffle Bag, Funny Pack and 2Way Day Pack. Drop 1 items will range from $100 to $850 USD.
The second drop will include more layering options such as the 65/35 Mountain Parka, 65/35 Hooded Sierra Down Vest, Field Denali Jacket, Field Denali Coat, Light Demin B/D Shirt, Polyester Ripstop Mountain Wind Parka, Ripstop Mountain Wind Pants, and the Polyester Corduroy Shoulder Bag seeing a price range of $65 to $470 USD. The limited THE NORTH FACE PURPLE LABEL x Spike Jonze items such as the 3 Way Bag and Shuttle Roller will also be on sale for $450 and $590 USD.
Look for THE NORTH FACE PURPLE LABEL’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection to land at The North Face’s Williamsburg outpost on Wednesday, January 23; the second release will land one week later on Wednesday, February 6. In order to purchase items, interested fans must visit COPDATE and follow The North Face. However, each customer is only allowed a limit of two pieces and only one style per item.
