Puffer coat collections are an integral part of the Northwest scene, like it or not. In recent years, there has been an added emphasis on form to match the puffer’s practical function, even making frequent appearances on designer runways. (For example, The North Face collaborated with Sacai for Fall 2017.) Being warm never looked so cool.
This January, Pop-In@Nordstrom announces an exclusive capsule collection in collaboration with The North Face. Inspired by the colors, patterns, and fabrics of South Asia and hiking culture, the collection reimagines the brand’s most iconic silhouettes. The shop opens January 12 in select Nordstrom stores and online.
The collections features the brand’s most iconic pieces, including:
- the Denali jacket, with a palette inspired by primary color flags often seen on mountainsides
- the Nuptse puffer, using an exclusively developed jacquard fabric with metallic thread
- and the Mountain Jacket in a tonal rich jacquard.
All the silhouettes are available in unisex sizing. In addition, the collection features beanies, hats, backpacks, bags, wallets, blankets. The collection’s custom patch that integrates a poppy flower with the traditional The North Face logo.
“I’ve always loved The North Face’s mantra, ‘Never Stop Exploring’ and how we define the word ‘explorer’,” says Olivia Kim, Nordstrom Vice President of Creative Projects. “The North Face is unique in their ability to outfit the most accomplished climbers, mountaineers, skiers, and runners in extreme conditions, as well as be my personal go-to for just walking around the city or going to the grocery store in an urban metropolis. These iconic styles are not only proven performance gear, but great fashion items as well.”
Pop-In@Nordstrom x The North Face is available in eight Nordstrom locations, including the Seattle Flagship store, and online at Nordstrom.com/pop from January 12 to February 11.
