CLOT and The North Face‘s first ever collaboration welcomes a vibrant clothing collection that’s “coloured by nature, inspired by exploration” whiles it takes us through mountains and towards the misty peaks.
For those that don’t know, CLOT was established in Hong Kong in 2003 as a streetwear label that bridges the cultures of East and West through its fashion, lifestyle, and music products.
Co-founder and Creative Director of CLOT, Edison Chen explained: “My mindset is actually exploration. Allowing yourself to see new things, allowing yourself to experience clouds, sunsets and sunrises is a story that I’ve never told. I feel like The North Face was the perfect conduit for that story to be expressed.”
With that in mind, check out the gallery below of the new collaboration centered around Mother Earth…
Many different nature-inspired elements are expressed through colouring in the new CLOT x The North Face collection that combines design and functionality. Maximised practicality is also achieved through the construction of technologically advanced materials.
Edison Chen called upon frequent collaborator Kaxuki Kuraishi for assistance designing the new collection. Born in Japan and founder of his clothing line THE FOURNESS, Kuraishi’s global knowledge of fashion helped push the limits of outerwear.
The use of colouring in the collection can reflect a breathtaking sea of clouds above mountaintops or a soothing setting sun in the sky.
The collection itself features an array of outerwear including new and innovative shell jackets, waterproof ponchos, fleece pullovers and shell pullovers.
A wide range of footwear and accessories have also been constructed, including a variety of trainers and hiking boots made with heat-retaining fabrics and waterproof technology.
A line of kid’s wear is also available as well as a selection of womenswear featuring the same hues and design styles.
The new CLOT x The North Face collection is scheduled to release February 23 via JUICE – a Hong Kong-based fashion retailer. A wider release via The North Face stores and website is set to launch on February 24.
