Following on from the “Lemon” capsule, which landed in March as the third part of the series, the new offering comprises four pieces that are designed for mix-and-match. The collection is inspired by the brand’s “Denali” fleece jacket; key design elements from the garment have been applied to new pieces, alongside details that draw from wall-climbing gear. The brand’s stated aim is to empower “city explorers” by creating a series of functional garments that are designed with urban life in mind. In a minimal, tonal palette of black, navy, olive green and white, the pieces prioritize technical fabrics and functionality.
The collection is ideally suited for warmer days; highlights include the DWR-treated City D2 Shirt, a short-sleeve style in a lightweight CORDURA®, and the Pocket Tee, which is made from a breathable, sweat-wicking FlashDry™ fabric. The wall-climbing influences are apparent in the collection’s Climber Shorts and Pants, which include a detachable chalk bag that can be worn on the waist or as a shoulder sling. Both are created in a microporous fabric that’s designed for breathability and comfort.
Take a look at the entire “Denali Reimagined” in the gallery above, and shop the collection when it lands on North Face’s website on May 14.
The brand has taken a proactive approach to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis with the launch of its Explore Fund to support exploration companies impacted by the global pandemic.
