The North Face Iridescent Collection

The North Face Iridescent Pack Delivers a Fresh Look for SS19

Far from its image as a strictly outdoor label, The North Face has always had a finger on the pulse of the city-dweller and a distinct urban presence, setting itself apart from ‘serious’ mountain climbing brands while still delivering performance and innovation in spades. Ever since the opening of their very first store in Berkeley, CA, the brand has adorned its signature pieces with bold colour-blocking and prints that have appealed just as much to the casual consumer as the outdoor enthusiast. Ever willing to push the boundaries, The North Face now present their latest capsule of urban classics: The Iridescent Collection.

The North Face Iridescent Cyclone II Jacket

Taking a brace of their most iconic outerwear styles — the 1996 Nuptse Jacket, 1990 Mountain Jacket and the Cyclone II windbreaker — The North Face have draped the familiar silhouettes in a multi-faceted, woven iridescent fabric, with a geometric pattern that changes aspect with the wearer’s movement. Showing off a palette of cool tones from purple to green to blue, the fabrics lose none of their performance attributes, with proprietary weather-proofing technologies like DryVent and WindWall all in full effect to help the wearer adapt to whatever the day brings.

The North Face Iridescent Pack Mountain Jacket

To bring things to the next level, the Nuptse down jacket and Mountain hard shell are modular, featuring zips and toggles to allow both to be worn together for the ultimate in weather resistance and warmth; these pieces may look good, but they’re also highly functional for even the harshest environments.

The North Face Iridescent Nuptse Jacket

Rounding out the Iridescent Collection is a clutch of apparel pieces including a t-shirt, hoodie and baseball cap, presented in stealthy black colourways and adorned with classic TNF branding in an iridescent treatment, perfect for mixing and matching with the outerwear, or for wearing solo on those warmer days. Owing to the technical nature of the fabrics, numbers for these pieces are strictly limited, so don’t sleep if you want to snag your favourite bits.

The North Face 1990 Mountain Jacket Iridescent

The North Face Iridescent Collection will be available from Aphrodite Clothing from the 10th of April 2019.

The North Face’s New SS18 Apparel Channels Classic Streetwear at its Finest

With a proven track record for making outerwear that’s as suited to the streets as it is to the mountains, it should come as no surprise that The North Face also create fantastic apparel that’s aimed more at the relaxed end of the market.

The ‘Fine’ range of jersey basics displays the same eye for vintage colour and detailing that’s made their jackets a success with tastemakers across the streetwear spectrum: excellent fabric choices like brushed cotton jersey and interlock sweat that feel both sturdy and luxuriously soft; comfort-oriented details like dropped hems, articulated elbows and underarm ventilation eyelets; and that iconic Half Dome box logo displayed to the sleeve in a way that’s distinctive yet inobtrusive.

The colour scheme also swerves the usual whites and navies, with Dark Teal and Vintage White proving just as versatile, yet different enough to stand out. Overall, it’s just very good stuff.

Consisting of long- and short-sleeved tees, a crewneck sweatshirt and a colour-blocked hoodie, The North Face ‘Fine’ apparel is all available from Aphrodite Clothing.

Heavy Jackets – The Edit

It doesn’t seem like more than a week ago that we were writing about all things summery: festivals, holidays, sunglasses.  But here we are, with winter fully upon us, bringing with it shorter days, icy winds and all kinds of weather to tackle. Fortunately, whether rain, snow or shine, we’re here to get you kitted out for the season with a well-curated selection of jackets and coats to last you through this winter and well beyond.

North Face Nuptse 1992 Jacket

THE NORTH FACE NUPTSE 1992 JACKET

A truly iconic piece from The North Face’s archives, the Nupste 1992 jacket takes inspiration from the original, while upgrading the fabrics and fit to more modern standards. Crafted from a lightweight nylon shell with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish fashioned into classic large baffles, and generously filled with cosy goose down to combat the cold in style. Various zip pockets keep your essentials safe and secure, while the whole look is finished with the iconic retro Dome logo patch to the left sleeve.

NAPAPIJRI SKIDOO 1 JACKET

Pullover jackets are having a moment right now, and for good reason: they’re perfect for layering for that retro outdoor sportswear look, as well as being designed to keep your core warmer than front-fastening styles. Napapijri’s Skidoo jacket lays claim to be the first ever jacket designed in this way, and is a staple of the brand’s outerwear range. The shell is water-repellent while the body is both lined with fleece and padded with Thermore filling for the ultimate in winter-proof apparel.

PATAGONIA FITZ ROY DOWN PARKA

Designed for serious outdoor use, yet with off-duty good looks, the Fitz Roy parka utilises Pertex Quantum fabrics throughout, which are lightweight, durable and water resistant, as well as letting the 800-fill goose down filling loft properly to maximise its warmth retention. So whether you’re scaling peaks on a weekend or schlepping between home and the pub on a night, this is one jacket that will never let you down in either the style or performance departments.

Of course, the above is just a small selection of our jackets and coats. Find these and many more instore and online at Aphrodite Clothing today.
