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 Gucci’s website .

Brooks challenges Vuori with new Luxe Apparel Collection men’s clothing (and women’s clothing!) line
Workout clothing is now more fashionable than ever
Two people walking on the street in Luxe

There has always been a separation between fashion and function, style and getting the job done. When it came to gym clothes, men were often used to simply throwing on a ratty old t-shirt and the same basketball shorts we have always worn. The world is ever-evolving, and the fitness world is beginning to get stylish. Brands are becoming more focused on style and comfort, closing the gap between fashion and function. Vuori has long been the pioneer of the stylish comfort game. But now they have a new competitive adversary on the market.

Brooks has been a mainstay in footwear since the early 1900s when they made bathing shoes. That's right, shoes made to be worn in the rivers, oceans, and anywhere the tender footed wanted to go. They developed shoes across many industries before they took aim at the one that held their passion: running. Decades later, they are one of the leading authorities in all things running, with some of the best shoes money can buy. Their next step is the release of the Luxe Collection, a combination of men's clothing and women's clothing that is just as good on the run as on the couch.

Ditch the blues and grays: This men’s fashion expert wants you to add more color to your wardrobe
Embrace a new color and revitalize your closet and your life
Max Israel of Y.Chroma

When men are young, we try out brighter colors portraying our youth. But as we age, the colors begin to dull, and we tend to drift toward safer neutrals like blue, gray, brown, and the always exciting black and white. Now, don't get us wrong, we love a great blue that is rich and striking or a dark outfit that gives us the evening black-tie look. But when your entire wardrobe looks dull and lifeless, it is time to liven it up with a color palette that draws attention, brings out your inner playfulness, and stands out from the crowd.

That can be challenging for a middle-aged man who has spent his entire life subduing his appearance with dark neutrals. But help is on the way; we got a chance to sit down with Max Israel, founder of Y.Chroma, a menswear brand out of Lisbon that is endeavoring to help men release their inner light with the kind of color that they've been missing out on their entire lives. Let him help you figure out the best way to liven up your closet and life.
