After dropping a trio of waist bags in soft microfiber suede, The North Face Purple Label has returned with two new Fall/Winter 2019 jackets adapted from the brand’s Steep Tech™ series that released back in the early ’90s. Featured is the Field Insulation Jacket and the Mountain Wind Parka, updated with a bevy of new textiles for today’s ever-evolving climates.

First up is the field jacket, constructed with durable water-repellent fabric. Made up of a mix of denier nylon, white ripstop yarn and Primaloft Silver Insulation Eco, the outer shells have been colored in light khaki, purple and black – three commonly used palettes in outdoor apparel in the ’90s. One distinctive design feature is its small pouch that sits under the half-zip opening at the top, with long grey rope pulls that also appear on the left and right pockets. The jacket’s central zip has been shifted to the left, while solid-toned panels are placed at the shoulders and the back yoke.

The next piece is the Mountain Wind Parka, coming in the same color schemes and composite materials as the previous silhouette. Constructed with an elongated cut, the parka sees sleek black panels at the sides, extending from the top of the shoulder to the lower forearms. Hidden openings are placed along the edges of the black panels, while “THE NORTH FACE” branding is subtly embroidered over the left sleeve. Other details like its two-way zipper, adjustable drawstrings and ribbed cuffs round up the winter garment.

The North Face Purple Label Mountain Wind Parka is currently available at nanamica.com for $283 USD, while the Field Insulation Jacket is expected to release soon for $565 USD.

Elsewhere, UNDERCOVER has immortalized Alex from A Clockwork Orange with three insulated jackets.
