The North Face x Brain Dead Fall 20

Shortly after releasing the first collection, Brain Dead and The North Face are coming together again to introduce Fall 2020 collection featuring climb-inspired silhouettes and functional details to encourage expanding levels of consciousness and the concept of expedition.

The release features outerwear which is the main source of inspiration but also sportswear, equipment, and accessories that combine The North Face iconic color blocking detail with a new Brain Dead color perspective. 

The collection is mainly inspired by 1976 Mountain Parka fully taped waterproof construction and oversized 1968 Sierra Parka. Brain Dead introduces for the first time ever exclusively women’s silhouettes in addition to the unisex pieces. 

The collection will exclusively be available to our customers starting on August 28 at 10:00 a.m. PST.  To sign up as a Brain Dead member register HERE
