The luxury Italian label shared the news via a short video on its Instagram, Twitter and TikTok channels, showing beautiful mountain views and a flag with both the Gucci and The North Face logos.
“Gucci and The North Face confirm that they will be bringing a collaboration to life in the coming months that celebrates the rich heritage of both brands,” reports WWD.

The upcoming collaboration marks the first time Gucci has created a full collection with another brand under creative director Alessandro Michele.
During the designer’s five-year reign, he has teamed up for various collaborations – such as with Liberty and Ken Scott.

The North Face has had some notable creative partners, such as Supreme, Sacai and, most recently, MM6 Maison Margiela in February for London Fashion Week.
The collaboration comes at a time of change for Gucci; the label isn’t taking part in Milan Fashion Week this year following an announcement that Michele would step away from the industry’s seasonal calendar.
At the time, Michele said of the current spring/summer and autumn/winter system: “I think these are stale and underfed words, clothes should have a longer life than that which these words attribute to them.”
He added: “So much outrageous greed made us lose the harmony and the care, the connection and the belonging.”
