Chances are, you already own a technical jacket from The North Face that gets an annual wardrobe rotation during the colder months (or whenever someone knocks on your door with a suggestion of building a snowman). Good news for those looking to semi-retire your current versions because The North Face has teamed up with MM6 Maison Margiela on a capsule collection that looks to set you apart from the other loyalists of the outdoorsy label. Thanks to the ballsy fashion approach of MM6 Maison Margiela, its staple jackets that are made to withstand the hardest environmental conditions have been turned into hype gear for the accidental adventurer. That means signature The North Face gear like the Expedition System – famed for its insulating properties and interlocking components – have had its silhouettes reworked. Other items such as the Denali jacket can be adjusted to a coat length or cropped like a sweater. The triple-zipper system also gives the option of adjustable armholes and sleeves. MM6 Maison Margiela also included its fave Tabi detail on cold weather wares such as the alpine mittens which are split at the thumb just like the famed footwear. The collection is slated for a September drop.
