Embodying the best of both hemispheres, American outdoor clothing brand The North Face has teamed up with icebreaker (of New Zealand renown) for a new Spring/Summer 2024 capsule.

Consisting of over half a dozen styles — including menswear and womenswear-centric styles — the collection plays dually to The North Face and icebreaker’s strengths (i.e. outdoor apparel and natural performance clothing).

Emphasising comfort and performance — even if the latter word merely brings to mind imagery of the Pilates studio floor — each piece in the North Face x icebreaker collection has been crafted with fabrics that are 100% plastic-free. In the case of certain pieces, materials even feature a blend of Lyocell and merino wool. Now how’s that for “healthy fibres”?

In line with previous North Face collaborations, a high proportion of items remain consistent across genders. Unsurprisingly, these include universal wardrobe staples like pants ($329.99), technical-style shorts ($249.99), and a cannily thermoregulating tee ($179.99).

The capsule’s centrepiece, however, is a full-zip hoodie available in two colourways for both men and women. Making use of a trademarked material known as Realfleece™, this North Face x icebreaker mid-layer combines the odour and moisture-resistant properties of merino wool with Lyocell’s peerless comfort and soft-to-the-touch handle.

Better yet, as with so many ‘smart’ apparel brands, the North Face designed this particular hoodie so as to be self-packable — a real boon when you’re trying to maximize every last litre of your premium cabin bag.
