They’ve just announced the new collab line with Brooklyn based artist KAWS. He is well known for pushing the limits of traditional concepts in painting, sculpture, and design, both physically and virtually. He seamlessly crosses all boundaries to connect creative disciplines with an unmistakable wit, irreverence and affection for culture.
Kaws said “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,”
The “XX KAWS” collection is centered around the concept of “Two mindsets, one vision. To see the world outside the lines.” The North Face and KAWS created the special range to blur the lines between on-and-off mountain performance and style, in an expression of both technical innovation and contemporary art.
