The lookbook shot by photographer Marc O’Malley features the colorful outwear pieces, carry options, and accessories put to use with snowcapped mountains as the backdrop. The black snow jacket and pants set are a standout when captured at night as the squiggle patterns reflect brightly under the flash photography. The bold color palettes used across classic The North face Freeride, Exploration, and classic 1996 Nuptse jackets feel equally eye-catching and at home when captured on the slopes.
“I’ve always admired The North Face iconic silhouettes – I have had them in my winter rotation for years. The blocking, stitching, and details on their coats really lent themselves to the way I structure a painting, so I treated the garments in our collaborative collection like a blank canvas. And I enjoyed exploring their extensive color and material archive as I would a new paint set,” said KAWS.
The North Face XX KAWS collection will be available at The North Face website, physical stores, and select retailers beginning on February 17. Pieces range from $55 to $550 USD.
