There are no specifics about the collab as yet, although the back of the jacket shown in the first campaign image suggests a technical direction. The army green hooded jacket features buckles and a netted pouch toward the tail, with a black The North Face logo placed in classic shoulder position and black patch detailing down the sleeves and on the cuffs.

The model in the shot is also wearing a pair of green quilted trousers. All of which is in line with The North Face Black Series’ “urban explorer” ethos.

Kuraishi, who worked for BAPE and freelanced with fragment design before launching his own label The Fourness in 2014, has collaborated with a number of brands, lending his creative skills to the likes of adidas Originals and NEIGHBORHOOD.
