North Face always seem to be collaborating on new experimental projects with other underground companies that bring a new taste to every collection they release. This includes teaming up with brands such as Atmos, Supreme, Supra, Liberty, and Taylor Design to name a few. I believe their continued work with Supreme has really brought out some new twists and designs to many of the jacket lines.
A good example of this was the Winter 2011 Nuptese Line of jackets that showed off some leopard skin prints and to go along with some other stylish travel luggage. People are looking for the weirdest and most unique styles out there these days. These jackets without a doubt made sure you popped out from the crowd. Another interesting set Supreme teamed up with North Face on was checkered styled pullover jackets that were released in Spring 2011. This went along with what seemed to be a whole camping theme with outdoor hats and sleeping bags being released at the same time. Not exactly my style, but still I’m sure found eager buyers.

However, I believe the best work the two companies have done so far would be within the last two years for the Spring 2012 and Spring 2013 series. The Spring 2012 line showcased a global theme with map prints plastered all over the jackets and backpacks they also released. The pattern may seem a bit too messy which I think they could have tightened up a bit on, but it brings forth a cool idea. The newest series that comes out this Spring includes some vibrant mountain parkas with a modernized look of basic patterns. They got creative enough to even include some fanny packs (if that’s your thing) and miniature backpacks to stash your goods in. I like the look of the newest series the best and seems like they would be the most durable for all the extreme weather conditions you may go through.

I like what North Face and Supreme have going on hear with annual collaboration projects that get more creative each time through. What they got going on this year is definitely pretty slick and they have definitely raised the bar for what fans should expect out of the two companies. Whats your pick of the best collaboration so far?
