Last year saw the rollout of the first items from North Face’s collaboration with Junya Watanabe. Perhaps the best of the whole lot however just recently dropped. The made in Japan collab in delivering a highly functional jacket that features all kinds of technical detailing throughout – inspired by TNF’s original Terra 65 backpack. A patchworked masterpiece of water-resistant  materials, this style is highly adaptable – featuring toggles and elastics at the hood and helming. Tasteful. Branding punctuates the look throughout, and alongside multiple pockets and backpack detailing. This is a show stealer and a must have for any serious technical outerwear fan. The only downside might be the hefty retail price, coming in at over $2000. It’s available now at END.

One of the highlights from June Watanabe’s outerwear collaboration with the North Face. Inspired by 90’s North Face and the culture around the brand, the coat is constructed from wool twill and technical canvas. Tons of details on this one including drawstrings, a detachable faux-fur trim hood and concealed zip closure with button placket at the front. The only thing not to like is the heft price point on this piece, you can get it over at SSENSE.

This piece is one of the best I’ve seen from Stone Island this scene. An awesome olive color way that’s the result of a garment dyeing process . The parka comes in a performance fabric made up of an outer opaque light nylon layer laminated to a very fine breathable, water and wind resistant inner membrane. The seams have been thermo-taped for optimal water resistance.  Along with the removable storm hood and zip fastening system this is a strong choice for even heavy-duty rainfall.  It’s available over at HAVEN.

Some of the most sought after UC grails have featured elaborate full size prints. This Fall/Winter collection contains a heavy duty printed Parka which should get you through all but the harshest winters. Details include a two way zip that extends to the hood, printed textile patch at the front and drawstrings at the waist and hem. The main selling point of course is the huge printed artwork on the back but besides that attention grabbing detail, this  is one of those pieces heads are going to regret sleeping on in a few seasons.

If I were to sum up North Face Purple Label in two words, they’d be exclusive and consistent. The Japan offshoot of the main North Face brand is alot more aspirational than the typical gear you’d find at Modell’s or in a suburban American mall. The color palette shifts for warmer weather, transitional towards tans, beiges, and navy. The fits are refined and really allow alot of flexibility in terms of the outfits you can create using these pieces. In terms of functionality, outerwear with COOLMAX construction allow for lightweight protection from the elements while maintaining breathability. Accessories come in the form of backpacks, duffles, bucket caps and nylon pouches. As per usual with Purple Label, it’s also nice to see to see items for women here as well, for that ultimate instagram power couple flex. Get the gear online or through Nanamica stores. Click through for more of the lookbook.
