As the cold, autumn weather has started to seep in, you might be after a new coat to keep you warm on your commute to work or daily exercise. Thankfully The North Face is here to help as they’ve just collaborated with Liberty London with a collection inspired by the Himalayas.
Taking the signature, hand-painted fabrics that Liberty has produced since 1875 to new levels of exploration, these beautifully crafted garments seamlessly weave 145 years of expertise with the mountain lifestyle of The North Face.
Steeped in London heritage, the female-only range showcases five key pieces and a variety of accessories to compliment. The hero product sees the iconic Sierra Down Jacket, £400, reimagined with the all over Liberty print whilst maintaining the technical expertise designed to keep you warm in all conditions. The cut and fit of the Sierra is based on the original version from 1968, featuring an oversized fit, patch pockets and drawcord hem.
Other essentials in the range include the Sierra Sherpa Fleece ¼ Zip, Liberty Hoodie, Liberty Tee all created with a splash of the bespoke Liberty print. Completing the look is the Liberty Field Bag, bucket hat, five panel cap and a toiletry kit to form the one-off exceptional heritage collaboration.
The collection is available to buy now from The North Face’s website and in select The North Face stores. We’ve added the store locator, here, for ease though most clothing stores are currently closed until early December due to new government rules.
We’ve picked some of our favourite pieces from the collection that we want in our lives, now.
