The Himalayas boast the highest mountain on the planet, standing tall at a gargantuan 29,029 feet Everest is famous all over the globe, a true wonder of nature. Now it can also lay claim to being the inspiration behind one of the freshest outwear pieces of the year. The North Face has joined forces with Liberty to produce a brilliant female-only collection, featuring the famous Himalayan mountain landscape.
The arty pieces consist of bold prints and wouldn’t look amiss on a Tame Impala album cover, with graphics of the Himalayas featured on the signature jacket. Bright, colourful and mesmerising, the design stands out for its simplicity.
Liberty, the luxury, high-end fashion fabric brand (they’ve been doing this 1875!), have merged with the cold-weather connoisseurs at The North Face to produce a unique batch of outerwear; while the design makes you shiver just imagining the terrain of the vast mountain region, the oversized fit gives a sense of warmth and comfort, protecting you from the elements, whether you’re climbing or simply out and about around the city this winter.
The Sierra Down Jacket, an iconic North Face staple having first hit the market fifty-two years ago, has been reimagined with Liberty’s eye-catching prints of the blue and grey mountains complimented by yellow lining, a colour synonymous with the outwear experts. There is a drawcord hem and patch pockets for essentials. It’s fashionable, fun but functional. You will be kept toasty while exuding a cool exterior in every meaning of the word.
It’s not just the jacket, oh no, there is also a Sierra Sherpa fleece, a Liberty hoodie, Tee (made from BCI cotton, excellent for the environment) and a host of accessories as well. A bucket hat, five panel cap and even a toiletry kit. It’s got it all. As usual with The North Face, you’ll look good and feel even better. The dash of Liberty-inspired prints makes for a dream partnership.
The collection is available on the TheNorthFace website
