A lot has changed in a year. Comedian John Mulaney will be the first to tell anyone that, having clocked in a stint at rehab, filed for divorce, entered into a new relationship, and being a father over the course of 12 months. But listen, not all of us need that much excitement in our lives and getting back to regular programming is all we can ask for these days. As random of a segue this is, Gucci and The North Face is that regular programming or a déjà vu moment we need. Having excited the fashion set with the first drop in January of 2021, which already feels like five years ago, a subsequent release today is still as exciting as the first considering many missed out on the original drop and had to rely on the secondary market for the hook-up. No excuses are accepted this time as the pair are giving you a headstart with an online launch that started a month prior with the tease of physical pop-ups in the coming weeks to follow. There’s plenty for fans to get excited about here whether you’ve got a great big outdoors adventure on the cards or a strut down the sidewalk for a carton of milk. Like the original collection, this second launch remixes the best of retro fits such as cameos of the GG monogram with ‘70s and ‘90s outerwear silhouettes. One thing’s for sure, there is no shortage of colours as bomber jackets, insulated jackets, and even hiking boots are blessed in vibrant green, yellow, and orange – made using regenerated materials too in order to lower its environmental impact. What is surprising is the inclusion of checkerboard patterns, floral prints, and even watercoloured prints of landscapes as a symbolic nod to where these clothes and accessories were originally intended to be worn. The pair also planned a few pieces with the current holiday season in mind. Colourful knits too make a strong case for choice attires during those fireplace sit downs and hot cocoa moments. The truth is, don’t expect tomorrow’s hikers to be suited up in anything from this capsule collection for that next big adventure up treacherous terrains. Gucci and The North Face want this collection, like the previous one, to be seen anywhere but in the comforts of home. Check your local listings to know when a pop-up is in your location or you can shop exclusive pieces online right now.
