Maison Margiela’s contemporary line MM6 debuted a new collaboration with The North Face at London Fashion Week yesterday.

For the FW20 collection, The North Face's hooded Himalayan Coat, cape-style Mountain Kaban, compact Nuptse puffer jacket, and the zippered Denali jacket were extended into dresses and rounded outerwear with detachable sleeves tied up at the back.

Collaborative branding saw The North Face's logo mirrored with MM6's number device. Elsewhere, the color-blocked outerwear was styled with clashing houndstooth, multi-colored zebra prints, and oversized blazers. These were worn with jewelry inspired by percussion instruments such as a tambourine choker and cymbal earrings.

Accessories in the collaboration include the padded Nuptse scarf, modified with dual pockets and a loop fastening system to be worn as a garment itself, and opera-length alpine mittens in orange, which features a split at the thumb like the Margiela "Tabi" boot.

“In the exercise of documenting a generation, the call and repeat of appropriation and innovation become tangible," read a statement from MM6 Maison Margiela. At a certain point, even the most recognizable tropes are subject to such interpretations that meaning is altered and new creative expressions are born. The MM6 collection for FW20 considers this conceit, employing controlled methods to approach the zeitgeist whilst avoiding nostalgia itself."

The MM6 x The North Face capsule will be available from September 2020 in selected multi-brand stores, in key MM6 and The North Face flagship stores, and online.
