Outerwear brand The North Face has revealed a collection with London-born and New York-based artist Shantell Martin, who is known for her signature line art technique. Inspired by the brand’s Search and Rescue archive, all of the offerings are made of 100-percent post-consumer recycled polyester. Offerings include a Himalayan parka, hoodie, sherpa jacket, sherpa joggers t-shirts and two basecamp bags.
Commenting on the effort, Martin stated, “The specific drawing I have done for this, its about this idea of challenging yourself and climbing and expressing yourself in life. Searching is such a huge task, but also, I think, is rescuing. Rescuing is unveiling, is making things transparent, is making things accountable. It’s seeing things as they are and accepting what they should be.”
The North Face and Martin’s collaborative capsule is now available on The North Face’s European online stores and farfetch.com.
