The North Face is always prepping us with fly gear for the frosty temps, whether it’s under the main label or through one of its many sub-brands — the Purple Label apparel we saw last month is a perfect example of that. The latest comes by way of The North Face Black Series, giving us an extensive set of unisex options with the super silky Velvet Collection for FW18.

In addition to the velvet exterior, each piece also embodies a set of other weatherproof technical specs, including WindWall lining and Durable Water Repellent coating to ensure you’re dry and fly all at once. In terms of what’s actually available, a Nuptse Puffer Jacket and Transform Down Coat are the clear standouts, in addition to a range of track jackets, pullovers and pants that are definitely built for the real style-seekers when it comes to winter fashion. From blues and bone greys to burgundy and navy, plus a classic black option that’s usually the favorite option, this set is filled with a little something for everybody. That is, if you like to really stunt while staying dry out here.
