High end fashion meets high quality outdoor apparel, and it’s coming to Pokemon GO!
For those unfamiliar, The North Face has been a top contender when it comes to durable yet comfortable outdoor apparel and outerwear. TNF is highly regarded among outdoor enthusiasts from hikers and mountain climbers, to top snowboarders and backcountry explorers. They have recently made the leap into street wear and have been expected to partner with other brands such as Supreme to extend their reach and brand recognition. The recent announcement with Gucci has raised some eyebrows however. No one could have expected this collaboration. Looking through some of the released images, it’s clear that a lot of thought went into the designs…and that logo is looking fresh.
Pokemon GO Gets Some Style
On December 27, 2020, Gucci teased their co-branded tent with a Pokémon GO flag and the caption “Coming Soon.” Will we be seeing Gucci x TNF merchandise in The Pokemon GO Style Shop? Yeah, I’d say that’s a safe bet. I’m sure we will be seeing Trainers all around the globe sporting the famous puffy jacket, beanie and high cut boots.
Is it possible we could see some real life merchandise featuring iconic Pokemon such as Pikachu and Eevee among others? Highly doubtful, but I’m not going to rule it out completely. No word yet on when high fashion will be making its way into Pokemon. GO, but the launch of the Gucci x TNF line drops in real life, on January 22, 2021, so it’s very possible we could be seeing it around that time frame.
See you around, Genesect!
