Gucci x North Face second collection release date details – Footwear News
Gucci and The North Face are reunited again for an unexpected second drop of their hype-worthy collaboration.
Much like the archival models from the 70s of the first edition, chapter two of the collection of the Italian fashion house run by Alessandro Michele and the outerwear giant continues to have a significant external influence, but this both with a 90s flair. The expansive, multi-category 130-piece collection for men and women includes ready-to-wear, soft accessories, luggage and footwear, including many pieces like hiking boots, multi-pocket backpacks and insulated jackets that enhance its outdoor use. .
Bright colors and several floral prints created in partnership with The North Face stand out in the collection. Logomania fans will also be delighted to see the The North Face x Gucci logo incorporated into the designs, along with several ‘GG’ and Horsebit details.
The shoes in the collection are a story of contrasts – hiking shoes for the outdoors or slides and mules for less active use. The gender neutral hiking boots have a thick rubber outsole and are made of GG fabric paired with brightly colored leather. And, the slides are available in the GG print, a floral print, or a soft beige merino wool, and all have the partnership logo on the upper, either embroidered or as a patch. A mule with the house’s signature horsebit and a grippy rubber outsole in Original GG fabric or fluffy beige merino wool.
The collection will be distributed in a limited number of Gucci-branded stores and pop-ups, where, according to the brand, will be designed to resemble a âclean ice landscapeâ. A selection of dedicated products will also be available in The North Face stores in New York, Beijing, Shanghai and Tokyo, as well as on gucci.com.
Gucci’s first collection with The North Face debuted in China late last year, with a US premiere in January that quickly sold out.
