The North Face has just unveiled its all-new “Ripstop” collection — and it combines retro outdoor designs with classic 90’s silhouettes to illustrate how exploration breathes art.

As a whole, the collection fosters an outsider spirit, referencing the very beginning of outdoor apparel. It honors the “dirtbag” and renegade explorers of the world who repurposed post-war surplus materials to create more functional gear. This inspiration has created a new, future-facing collection where textures alongside a military-inspired aesthetic take center stage.

The ripstop aspects of the collection also tap into The North Face’s origins, with elevated functionality and creative repurposing being at the capsule’s core. This innovative approach to repurposing is then combined with iconic The North Face silhouettes and classic colorways.

Highlights from the collection come in the form of The North Face’s new and evolved lifestyle pieces with the ‘92 Neptuse and Denali Pants being taken to new heights with durable zippers, buttons, and fabrications that are designed to withstand the harsh and great outdoors.

Additionally, new puffer jackets are complemented by customary The North Face branding on the chest, while more technically inclined parka jackets are hit with a slew of pockets and heavy-duty zippers. Accessories round off the capsule, with new beanies and gloves welcomed to keep explorers warm.

You can check out the new “Ripstop” collection from The North Face above and it’ll be available to shop via the brand’s official website from January 16.
