The North Face XX KAWS 2
The North Face Announces Second Collaboration with Legendary Artist KAWS
New The North Face XX KAWS collection anchored by iconic styles with disruptive visuals
DENVER – Friday, October 14 – Today The North Face revealed The North Face XX KAWS second collaboration with the legendary artist. Available for purchase October 26, the collection reimagines The North Face technical and iconic styles, pushing the perspective of what they can be.
Based in Brooklyn, the artist KAWS is world renowned for pushing the limits of traditional concept of paintings, sculptures, and design, both physically and virtually. The second collaboration features KAWS’ signature abstract patterns—continuing the theme of perception and visibility—with new, tonal color expression and texture through iconic styles from The North Face Expedition System.
Launched in 1990, the Expedition System was the most technically advanced integrated clothing system, built for unforgiving conditions and designed to enable exploration from the Himalayas to Antarctica. It was unrelentingly tested by some of the most accomplished athletes in the world, and launched many of The North Face most iconic styles, including Nuptse, Denali, Mountain Jacket and Himalayan Parka, all featured in the collaboration.
Available at Select Retailers, The North Face stores and on www.thenorthface.com beginning October 26, this collection includes footwear, soft accessories, luggage, and a variety of men’s and women’s styles, including the ‘95 Denali Jacket, ‘94 Himalayan Parka, ThermoBall Traction V Mule and more.
