Few designers these days feel more delightfully unexpected in their work than Gucci’s Alessandro Michele. From imaginative collabs to his often-unorthodox approach to both honoring and transforming the codes of the legendary Italian house, Michele simply seems like he’s having tremendous fun upending the traditions of the label he’s overseen since 2002.
That’s true of his latest collaboration with The North Face, the American company that’s been producing outerwear, footwear and more for explorers and adventurers since the late 1960s. By combining the rigorous details of the San Francisco-based performance-wear brand with both the iconic and whimsical designs Michele loves to infuse in his collections, he’s created pieces that instantly feel unique – and highly coveted.
Indeed, the latter is among the reasons Gucci is releasing this latest collab in chapters, to both spur and satisfy an insatiable demand. And why not? From jogging pants and bomber jackets imbued with colorful florals to hiking boots, backpacks and more crafted in Gucci’s legendary double-G print and accented with bright leather trims, The North Face x Gucci promises to rank high among 2022’s hottest collections.
