what to wear now: The North Face

Exploration needs daring, it requires first steps, bold decisions and courage. Lucy Walker, Daisy Voog and Beatrice Tomasson knew all this and more, each of them taking giant strides so that others could follow.

Lucy Walker was a prolific explorer who undertook nearly 100 expeditions, became the president of the Ladies’ Alpine Club and achieved legendary status as the first woman to reach the summit of the Matterhorn.

Daisy Voog didn’t just summit the Eiger via the mountaineering-style ridge; she climbed its challenging north face, inspiring everyone to question what was possible.

Beatrice Tomasson took up mountaineering at the age of 26. 16 years later she summited the Marmolada via its south face. It was regarded as one of the longest and most challenging climbs in the Alps at the time; she climbed it in one day, reframing notions of strength and boldness in the mountains.

These three brilliant women form the inspiration behind the new Glacier Pack from The North Face. Celebrating some of these iconic ascents, the new collection is designed to support women on any path they choose.

The head-to-toe collection includes key pieces such as the Glacier Wind Jacket and VECTIV Taraval. The apparel uses S.Café fabrics, that turn recycled coffee grounds into fabric, the collection isn’t just highly functional, it’s nature-friendly too.

The collection is available to buy now at https://www.thenorthface.co.uk/. To keep up to date on future launches follow @thenorthfaceuk on Instagram, and @thenorthface on Facebook.
