Maison Margiela’s contemporary line MM6 will be showing a collaboration with The North Face at London Fashion Week this weekend.
The new partnership will see classic pieces from The North Face’s Expedition System re-imagined with the circle concept inherent to MM6’s aesthetic. The MM6 numbers device mirrors The North Face logo in white thread embroidery on each piece.
Recognizable pieces from The North Face such as the hooded Himalayan Coat, the cape-style Mountain Kaban, the compact Nuptse puffer jacket, and the zippered Denali jacket fuse MM6 iconography with The North Face’s classic functionality.
Accessories in the collaboration include the padded Nuptse scarf, modified with dual pockets and a loop fastening system to be worn as a garment itself, and opera-length alpine mittens, which feature a split at the thumb like the Margiela ‘Tabi’ boot.
“Resonating with the modular and customizable nature of both the MM6 collection and the original Expedition System, garments are engineered with interlocking components that adapt and extend the protective, insulating properties of each design,” read a statement from The North Face.
The MM6 x The North Face capsule will be available from September 2020 in selected multi-brand stores, in key MM6 and The North Face flagship stores, and online.
