The connection between nature and human beings, and delving into the idea of adventure—ideas that inform the documentary video by Sean Vegezzi which celebrates #TheNorthFacexGucci collection.

Shot in the Alps mountain range, as well as in Rome, Sierra, and New York, the documentary features interviews with Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s Creative Director, David Whetstone, The North Face Design Manager Global Collaborations, Archives and Special Projects, Nina Williams, professional rock climber and artist Post AOW. The film shows an alternative lifestyle in the great outdoors, where beauty and function necessarily coexist. The viewer is invited to look at the creative processes behind the collection, from the design team to product developers and skilled craftsmen, as well as the underground history of The North Face.

Since going seasonless, Gucci has signaled big internal changes towards the direction of sustainability. Similarly, progress has been made at The North Face since launching their collection of refurbished clothing for their North Face Renewed line. As a member of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, they are committed to using some eco-friendly materials, including recycled polyester. Additionally, the brand has set a target to consume 100% renewable energy in its own operations by 2025.
