—02. Interior details.

Words

The North Face Purple Label continues its long run of collections packed full of perfectly executed essentials. This jacket certainly isn't reinventing the wheel, but it looks good, it will keep the rain off, and the slight fishtail adds a modified classic design cue where it's most welcome.

The Mountain Coat, from the highly exclusive North Face Purple Label, is a formidable alternative to the many waterproof outerwear options out there. Hard to acquire for those outside of Japan, we can still appreciate such well-designed things from afar.

01. Polartec Thermal Pro/Pertex Nylon.
02. Beige colourway.

Words

While North Face's Japan-only Purple Label is consistently leagues above its North American counterpart in terms of design, it had never previously made a statement like it did this season. The Fall-Winter '13 collection struck a perfect balance between wearability and innovation, never more present than in this Reversible Versa Loft Jacket.

Another great looking piece of outerwear from the unattainable Japanese brand. This 65/35 lightweight parka features two-tone colour blocking that is as subtle as it is tasteful, adding the right amount of detail to an easy to wear spring jacket.

North Face Purple Label Pertex Bags

01. Packing Cases.
02. Wrap Bag.

Words

While it seems obvious, having options is never a bad thing when it comes to storing and carrying things. While a few brands offer a similar set of different options, The North Face Purple Label has done it right by using the super lightweight, waterproof and durable Pertex. Their set of packing cases provides a nice range of sizes for any trip big or small, while the performance fabric adds functionality to that utility. The blue, red and white stripes are an especially nice version of the technical fabric which they've also used on a great adjustable wrap bag which is also worth a look.

The North Face Purple Label Day Pack

01

Info

—01. FW11 version.

Words

There are a lot of back packs out there these days, especially in the Japanese market. Not just pure volume either, but a lot of good ones. The North Face Purple Label still alludes North American, so perhaps its the unavailability that makes this one even more appealing, but I really like the mix of colors and details on this fall day pack with a little bit extra California reference.
