Back in October, The North Face Urban Exploration unveiled its Fall/Winter 2019 collection, which saw a range of distinctive cold-weather staples designed by Kazuki Kuraishi. The outdoor label has called in the Japanese designer once again, reuniting for a two-part Spring/Summer 2020 capsule: featured is the “Pink” capsule, to be followed by an upcoming “Lemon” lineup.

This season’s range presents a slew of intricately constructed tech garments like color-blocked ski jackets, billowing parkas, graphic tees and breathable nylon trousers, each refined with a functional edge. One noteworthy piece is the multi-paneled jacket dominated by a muted beige palette, accompanied by hits of blue and slight pink accents. The front of the piece comes with a five-pocket construction — two at the upper chest, two at the waist and a subtle zipper compartment at the right side. “The North Face” branding is boldly stamped at the left arm, complemented by a removable black ripstop strap that starts from the lower right pocket and crosses over the left shoulder to the back. As a final note, adjustable cinching appears at the side of the hood, while wide velcro straps at the cuffs finish the piece.

Another highlight is a crisp white parka that’s fitted around the upper body and billows out slightly near the bottom. It comes with two large flap pockets at the waist embellished with contrasting blue snap buttons. The piece maintains a relatively minimal aesthetic, accented with The North Face’s logo at the upper left shoulder and at the back right, sitting next to the collapsible hood. Other pieces like technical hoodies, graphic T-shirts, backpacks, breathable button-ups and waterproof trenchcoats round up the expansive range.

Scroll through the gallery above for a look at the Kazuki Kuraishi x The North Face Urban Exploration SS20 “Pink” Capsule, which is slated to release on February 6, followed by the “Lemon” capsule on February 20.
