Hender Scheme x The North Face capsule collection
After the big hit that was last year's collab between Japanese leather goods brand Hender Scheme x The North Face for the cool space boot lookalike Nuptse Peel Gore, they have returned.
Now they're releasing a hybrid capsule collection featuring climbing footwear, accessories, and bags titled, as the mantra says, “Things that change, things that do not change”.
The drop is more suited for warm weather than last year's Nuptse for sure. The HS Climbing Diversity, sold for ￥36,300 at the collab's website, reimagines the traditional trekking shoes by exploring modern tech & functionality and infusing Hender Scheme's Tyrolean leather fit into The North Face's 2-in-1 shoe.
This is not the first time The North Face is exploring leather-infused collabs. Remember their release of a capsule collection with Gucci last year?
Besides transformable shoes, the capsule collection also presents the brands' vision of sandals. The HS Ultra Stratum PRO comes in natural leather straps around a monotone piece for ￥25,300. Developed to bring freedom with maximum stability and cushioning to those who wear it, this piece is set atop a Vibram Megagrip outsole, a high-performance tech.
The travel-friendly bags HS Shuttle Daypack, and HS Shuttle Daypack Slim and HS Glam Travel Kit keep things tidy while on the go with leather tabs, handles, zipper pulls, and a bunch of possibilities when it comes to organizing. The prices vary from ￥46,200, ￥46,200, and ￥19,800, respectively.
Before launching all the pieces on their website on April 30, Hender Scheme is giving ppl the opportunity for winning the products thru a few raffles that began on April 9 and will continue 'til the 23. But beware, the collection is expected to launch only in Japan due to TNF's licensing reasons.
