The North Face release coolest gear for women’s history month

Those progressive folk at The North Face have teamed up with graphic designer and illustrator Naomi Otsu to create a women’s history month collection that celebrates and elevates women in the outdoors.

Exploration is bigger than a month or a day; it’s a lifetime. A lifetime of community and stories; of lifting each other up and pushing each other forward. Naomi’s unique print is inspired by wilderness and the connections we build there.

Born in New York and raised in Tokyo, Naomi is known for her playful and colourful designs, the perfect prints for adventurous women.

The collection features a backpack, trail runners, puffer jacket, tees and sweat crew thus far.

The Women’s Borealis has a comfortable, FlexVent suspension system and loads of features including a padded main compartment, laptop sleeve, tablet sleeve, water bottle pockets, bungee cord and more. AUD$200 

The Retro Nupse jacket is built for mountain and city-life, it has a boxy silhouette, ripstop fabric, iconic oversize baffles, and a stowable hood to keep you warm and dry when it gets cold and wet. AUD$500

The Vectiv Escape trail shoe have also been given a Naomi makeover. How hot are these, right? Not available in Australia yet, but we’ll let you know when they drop.

Yes, we know you want this crew too, we don’t blame you. We’ll let you know when this is available too.

Oh, and these tees were released for International Women’s Day.
