The North Face x Gucci Chapter 2 Arriving in January

Looking for funky fashion on the slopes this winter? Searching a bit of pop to trail hikes? Or to add a bit of feline fun to your backpack? Don’t fret because The Manual’s got you covered — the Gucci x The North Face partnership is back. Picking up exactly where it left off in chapter one, chapter two will continue a cutting-edge product selection that stays true to Gucci’s luxury core while celebrating The North Face’s spirit of exploration in a multitude of textile expressions.

The North x Gucci, chapter two, includes functional jackets in classic styles and funky colors.

Whether it’s the discovery of new places and foreign cultures or simply the adventure that is getting groceries during a deep freeze, this collection once again draws from human curiosity to express the value of self-discovery and self-expression that define both brands.

The North Face x Gucci design is a cross-category collection for men and women that includes ready-to-wear threads, soft accessories, luggage, and shoes. Hiking boots, slippers, and slip-ons get hip when wrapped in the Italian designer’s classic patterns and stamped with the iconic North Face logo that incorporates the Gucci name. Puffy winter bombers and light spring jackets reference The North Face’s classic functional construction while flashing dual-color designs that will bring some brightness to dull, gray days.

This second collaboration from the two apparel makers also hearkens back to classic looks. The North Face reimagines iconic 1990s multicolored prints, some of which are inspired by Gucci’s archive. Selected outerwear remasters 1970s Gucci styles in concert with The North Face’s latest proprietary technologies and latest best-in-class construction and technology. This minimalist approach to performance and function features an ultralight bonded baffle construction instead of stitching, unique yarn constructions to thermoregulate during wear, and transfer printing on a nylon base.

In addition, chapter two of The North Face x Gucci embodies both brands’ commitment to supporting eco-sustainable activities. Manufacturing materials include Econyl – a nylon fabric created from discarded and regenerated waste like fishing nets, carpets, and other scraps. These are then recycled and recreated, decreasing new clothing’s environmental footprint. One hundred percent of the down used as insulation is certified to the Responsible Down Standard by Control Union. Garment and carrier bags, boxes, and pouches are strategically designed to reduce environmental impact. All paper and cardboard products come from sustainably-managed forest sources, and uncoated paper is used as packaging to ensure it is fully recyclable. Boxes are equipped with handles to eliminate shopping bags.

The North Face x Gucci collection will be distributed through designated stores and Gucci Pop-Ups designed to suggest a clean icescape. A dedicated product selection will also be available from The North Face stores in New York, Beijing, Shanghai, and Tokyo. A limited selection of The North Face x Gucci pieces will also be on sale at

Audemars Piguet, which has headquarters in Le Brassus, Switzerland, was founded in 1875 in Vallée de Joux by Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet. Just like its peers Rolex and Patek Philippe, the brand is known for superb craftsmanship and simply its name in general, with many people buying it as their first watch when they come into money.

Audemars Piguet is a brand known for some of the most expensive watches in the world, with the likes of Tom Brady, Ed Sheeran, and LeBron James sporting one. It has also become known for celebrity collaborations, including with John Mayer and Travis Scott's Cactus Jack.

Protect your skin in style this summer with the best sun shirts of 2024
Better than sunscreen and chemical-free, these tops are purpose-built to fend off those "endless summer" rays.

When it comes to dressing for the summer heat, "less is more" seems to make the most sense. Less clothing means less trapped body heat, and that makes for a more comfortable you. For the most part, that works. But this equation doesn't account for protecting your skin against the sun's harmful UV rays.

For outdoorsy types – we’re talking the most adventurous kind, like trail runners, hikers, kayakers, mountain climbers, and so on – wearing less clothing while spending a significant amount of time in the sun can actually do more harm than good. Sure, sunscreen is a thing, and you should definitely keep using it. But that’s also where another problem arises: In order to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, sunscreen — even the best natural, reef-safe sunscreen — needs to be slathered on regularly. And, if you’re spending more time outdoors than in, that gets expensive, too. That's where good sun-protective shirts (a.k.a. "sun shirts") come in.
