VANS AND THE NORTH FACE GEAR UP FOR EXPLORATION
Holiday partnership to launch a bold, new collection
Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, and The North Face, outdoor apparel, equipment and footwear leader, join forces for a new Holiday 2017 collection.
Championing values of innovation and adventure, Vans partners with The North Face this season to create an exclusive collection of apparel, accessories and footwear that fuse each brand’s quality of design to create functional cold weather offerings. Available in a bold scheme of black, white, red and yellow colorways, the partnership highlights the Vans Old Skool and Sk8-Hi silhouettes, along with apparel and accessories treated with a signature technology to take you from urban terrain to rural landscapes, while keeping you warm and dry along the way.
With help from The North Face trusted Thermoball™ technology, Vans updated the Torrey Jacket with the synthetic PrimaLoft® fill to guarantee lightweight warmth in the coolest of conditions. The Vans x TNF Torrey MTE quilted jacket is featured in three colorways – red, black and yellow, and signed off with a Vans x TNF embroidered patch on the front. In accessories, Vans reimagines the iconic The North Face Base Camp Duffle, modified for the first time ever to include a skateboard strap. The bag dons the iconic The North Face logo with embroidered patch detailing.
Finally, Vans unveils four iterations of the Sk8-Hi MTE and Old Skool MTE, each featuring The North Face logo on the back heel counter, The North Face custom eyelet and a checkerboard lugged outsole.
The full collection matches back to the primary red and yellow colorways, in addition to classic black and white for a striking contrast.
Vans and The North Face were founded in California in 1966 with a shared mission to inspire a lifestyle of exploration and creative expression. The Vans x The North Face collaboration launches globally on November 3, 2017.
