The North Face and Gucci recently announced on Instagram that the two apparel brands are joining forces for a new collaboration. The announcement included teaser clips on the Gucci Instagram page with a flag featuring both iconic logos and colorways alongside a foghorn sound. The videos are set in stunning, mountainous landscapes with clear skies and sunshine with the caption #TheNorthFacexGucci.
The new North Face x Gucci collection launch date is still to be determined and further details of the series are scarce. The unexpected announcement without details has become a popular marketing strategy for many brands including celebrities and increases expectations and excitement over the launch. Gone are the days of traditional marketing and we can expect more surprise launches from other brands to follow suite.
