The North Face taps into archives with their Extreme Collection

The North Face Extreme Collection

The North Face originates from humble beginnings out on the west coast of America, with their passion for mountaineering and unmatched ambition they built the San Fransisco-hailing brand which has become a global phenomenon, first in the world of the outdoors and more recently into the streetwear culture.

More than 50 years after it's inception, TNF has dug deep into the archives and reintroduced the Extreme collection, first debuted in 1988. A capsule heavily influenced by the '80s and '90s high-flying big mountain ski culture, with modern technology and function reworked into current style. A stand out collection which compiles retro typefaces, bold colour-blocking, tricolour aesthetics and decorative graphics.
