KAWS and The North Face have teamed up to soon release their “KAWS XX” collection. The North Face is known for their durable outdoor gear and clothing. This is not the first collaboration for The North Face. There have been collaborations such as Dover Street Market X The North Face and Gucci X The North Face. Brian Donnelly, professionally known as KAWS, has teamed up with high end brands in the past as well. Some of the brands KAWS has collaborated with include, CDG, Reese’s Puffs cereal, and Nike. For the first time ever, we will see a KAWS x The North Face Collaboration.
About The “KAWS XX” Collection
The “KAWS XX” collection is an extension of the latest KAWS: HOLIDAY installation. In a statement about the collection KAWS said, “I’ve always admired The North Face iconic silhouettes – I have had them in my winter rotation for years.” KAWS went on to say,
“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.”
This comes as no surprise since Brian Donnelly is an American artist and designer.
A Look At The Collection
The collection includes a series of multicolored Nuptse jackets, Freeride fleeces, tracksuits and down pants. The collection will also include accessories such as, beanies, bags, and a balaclava.
Each piece from the collection has an abstract camouflage look with bold contrasting panels. The ‘XX’ logo is parallel to The North Face logo as well.
Where To Buy The Collection
The collection will be available for purchase starting February 17. Following that, you can purchase pieces from the collection on The North Faces dedicated KAWS website. The prices for this collection range from $55 to $550.
