COLORED BY NATURE: CLOT AND THE NORTH FACE ANNOUNCE FIRST COLLABORATION
CLOT is pleased to announce its first collaboration with the world-renowned outdoor sportswear expert The North Face. Seeing outdoor exploration as our dialogue with Mother Earth, the brands take us through the mountains and towards the misty peaks, introducing a collection that brings together elements of nature and stylistic aesthetics that aim to add colors to your journey.
“The core person that I am, it hasn't really changed over time, but my curiosities have, what gives me a successful feeling has. My mindset is actually exploration. Allowing yourself to see new things, allowing yourself to experience with clouds, sunset and sunrises, is a story that I've never told. I feel like The North Face was the perfect conduit for that story to be expressed,” shared Edison Chen, Founder and Creative Director of CLOT.
Reshaping outdoor wear with eminent style, the collaboration delivers a perfect combination of design and functionality. Nature-inspired elements encountered along the journey are translated through colors with hints of oriental charm, topped with technologically enhanced materials and creative layering ideas for maximized practicality. Edison Chen has also invited fashion designer Kazuki Kuraishi to participate in the project, integrating his unique fashion understanding into The North Face's outdoor pieces, creating more possibilities for outdoor wear.
“When I design, I normally think about the details first. I don't think too much about the concept, but Edison does. That's why we work together. I always think of good design as it is, but even beautiful design needs good function,” explained Kazuki Kuraishi, Fashion Designer.
Explore the colors of nature,
from the mountains to the sea and the clouds

Capturing colors of the moment, anchoring our emotions
From fine stones at the base of the mountain to the sky above the summit
Never stop exploring
