Editor’s Notes: The North Face is reintroducing its Black Series line for SS20, a design-led collection pairing technically advanced materials with progressive silhouettes. Designed for trailblazers and approached from a feminine point of view, the seasonal assortment centers around innovative technology including the brand’s breathable and waterproof FUTURELIGHT material.

“With Black Series, we have created the next step in the evolution of The North Face as a brand that dares to disrupt and push the boundaries of innovation to deliver timeless designs that are built to last a lifetime,” says The North Face Head of Global Creative, Tim Hamilton. “In conceptualizing the collection, we took inspiration from The North Face Archival Library, selecting styles that have a place from born in the mountain to city, distilling them to their purist form, and rebuilding them into timeless reimaginations.”

With Black Series, a diverse team of designers aims to create a fashion-minded collection featuring elevated design lines and premium materials focusing on functionality and authenticity. The SS20 range centers around two silhouettes in particular: the Geodesic Dome and the Mountain Light jacket, as the collection includes women-specific styles and gender-neutral silhouettes, in addition to men's offerings.
