MM6 to show new collaboration with The North Face at London Fashion Week
Feb 14, 2020
MM6 Maison Margiela, the contemporary line developed by fashion house Maison Margiela, has partnered with VF Corp.'s The North Face, just in time for the MM6 Autumn/Winter 2020 runway show at London Fashion Week.
Set to debut on February 16, the collaboration works new versions of The North Face signature Expedition System pieces -- a concept of detachable, layered pieces designed for extreme weather conditions, first launched in 1990 -- into the MM6 fall collection, adding a Margiela flair to The North Face's practical outerwear.
"Resonating with the modular and customizable nature of both the MM6 collection and the original Expedition System, garments are engineered with interlocking components that adapt and extend the protective, insulating properties of each design," MM6 said in a press release.
"Starting from The North Face iconic black shoulder construction and executed in a bright palette, authentic performance textiles ensure each piece preserves ultimate functionality whilst embodying a sculptural and resolutely avant-garde silhouette."
MM6 returns to London Fashion Week after showing its fall/winter 2019 collection in Milan for the first time in Maison Margiela's history.
Within the past year, The North Face has launched other outerwear collaborations with Brain Dead, a Los Angeles-based creative collective and cult streetwear brand, Supreme, as well as National Geographic.
