Shantell Martin's collaboration with The North Face. The collection takes inspiration from The North Face's archive pieces from the brand’s previous Search and Rescue collection, initially designed for the purpose of search and rescue mountain teams, with designs utilizing material technology to ensure the safety of the wearer and is reimagined through Shantell Martin's design. The collection includes jogging trousers, parkas, fleeces, t-shirts, and hoodies made for mountain exploration, produced as a continuation of the brand’s original Search and Rescue edit. At the heart of the collection is an Oversized Sherpa Fleece, made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled polyester and available in a print by Shantell Martin. Her original print symbolizes the movements of humanity, climbing walls, and overcoming challenges. It's rooted in the outdoor's sense of community but with an added edge of individuality.
“The specific drawing I have done for this, it's about this idea of challenging yourself and climbing and expressing yourself in life,” Martin explains, in the video shared alongside the collection. “Searching is such a huge task, but also, I think, is rescuing. Rescuing is unveiling, is making things transparent, is making things accountable. It’s seeing things as they are and accepting what they should be.” - Shantell Martin
The collection is available in the UK and Europe at select retail partners and online here. For US customers see here.
