Although it might not seem like it from the outset, The North Face and Kaws are sort of kindred spirits. Both started out passionate about a particular thing. For TNF that was creating gear to help explorers focus on exploring. For Kaws, although harder to pinpoint, had to do with getting his graffiti out and into the world. So what's the commonality again?
Both sides stayed true to their goals and never wavered. It was the public that had to catch on, and catch on they did, to this day never letting go. And it's this connection to culture that has inched both the 'XX' and 'half rainbow' close enough to where a collaboration doesn't just make sense, but was meant to be. "Two mindsets, one vision."
Long since adopted for use off the mountain as well as on, a selection of essential North Face clothing, accessories and luggage provides the perfect vessel for bright color blocking and spontaneous all over "dragline" prints from the mind of the renowned artist.
