Items include a puffy zip-up jacket, a work shirt, a motocross jersey top, crewneck sweater, motocross pants, and the rider-certified V1 helmet, Vue goggles and gloves.

Aside from Supreme’s FW19 Week 6 Drop, this week we have an impressive array of special releases and collaborations that make up a selection of must-have street staples.
Some hard-to-miss collaborations this week include BAPE and Formula 1‘s second capsule celebrating the upcoming 2019 Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix, and AWGE release at Selfridges to launch a permanent space and the Alife x Lee co-anniversary capsule. Elsewhere, we have Moncler‘s latest Genius project chapter, the highly-anticipated 7–Moncler Fragment Hiroshi Fujiwara collection. Rounding up this week’s drops is The North Face‘s “7 Summits” collection, Stone Island‘s 23rd Shadow Project collection and Anti Social Social Club‘s next FW19 drop entitled “FEELING ANXIOUS FOR NO REASON.”
The North Face “7 Summits” Collection
The North Face is back again with another range of covetable outerwear. Dubbed the “7 Summits” collection, the function-focused range is inspired by The North Face-endorsed ski-mountaineer Kit DesLauriers.
In 2006, DesLauriers became the first person to scale and then ski down all Seven Summits — the tallest peaks located on each continent. The “7 Summits” collection builds on established alpine aesthetics, adding extra detailing in the form of interchangeable patches that honor the highest peaks.
The collection features versions of the Himalayan Parka, a limited edition ’95 Denali Fleece, Explore Haulaback Backpack and 7SE Bootie all in a bright yellow and black tooling. Part of The North Face’s City collection, the range expresses refined streetwear cuts, that maintain the rugged, mountaineering technical specs necessary to conquer mountains. Coming together to further bridge the gap between streetwear culture and high-performance wear.
