Traversing difficult terrain from icy plains to city streets, The North Face's Trans-Antarctica capsule is a testament to the idea that every journey is a milestone.
In 1990, The North Face sent an international team of explorers on the first dogsled crossing of Antarctica - an extraordinary physical feat that saw the American outdoor brand's intrepid team cross 4,000 unforgiving miles of snow and ice. Their mission was to study climate change and raise awareness for Antarctica's endangered environment - a balanced ecosystem necessary for maintaining the equilibrium of planet earth.
Designed to face the coldest continent, The North Face's Expedition Parka became a barrier between failure and glory - a symbol of unity the brought the whole world together.
Woven into the layers of the brand's iconic outerwear, fleece items and accessories are stories from the past, rooted in summits, in firsts and in unknowns.
Worn by legendary explorers, city dwellers and everyone in between, the Trans-Antarctica collection was born with purpose but has metamorphosed into an altogether different beast - at home on mountains, in cities and journeys higher.
