The North Face and Japanese Label HYKE Unveil New Spring/Summer 2018 Outerwear
Snakeskin in the spring?
The North Face has debuted a new line of outerwear created in collaboration with Japanese womenswear brand, HYKE. The duo’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection takes an experimental approach to traditional outerwear. Full-length parkas are cropped all the way up to the chest, while sleeves are expanded for extra wind coverage.
There’s also a calf-length pullover that is crafted from white and black snakeskin — a reference to HYKE’s bold aesthetic. The wares are a muted palette, with olive green, black and white serving as the primary colors of the range.
The limited edition collaboration will only be available for purchase in Japan. Take a look at the runway photos above and stay tuned for more information. If you love denim, you’ll also want to take a look at The North Face’s Urban Exploration line.
