The North Face Celebrates 30 Years of The Nuptse

Celebrating 30 Years Of The Iconic Down Jacket

2022 marks the 30th anniversary of the highly celebrated Nuptse jacket with a very special anniversary release The North Face treat us to the 92′ Nuptse collection.

Alongside the Mountain jacket, the Himalayan & the Denali, the Nuptse is one of The North Face’s most celebrated outerwear styles of all time. Long before the word “Gorpcore” was even a recognised thing, the Nuptse jacket has been a staple style everywhere from NYC’s East Coast hip hop scene to the train taggers of Tempelhof. Celebrated for its superior warmth, the Nuptse looked just as good on an illegal rave field somewhere in the cold and rainy Pennines as it did on the highest peaks of the Pyrenees. The thing is as far as down jackets go, the Nuptse will always be king. For December 2022, The North Face celebrates the 30th anniversary of the original Down silhouette with the introduction of the 92 Retro Anniversary Nuptse jacket.

As far as music & subculture was concerned 1992 was where dance music & rave culture really started to take over the airwaves thanks to the likes of Snap, Rozella & The Shamen. Across the pond rap music had started a new chapter with NWA’s founder, Dr Dre, dropping his first solo album’ The Chronic’ and The Beastie Boys released their 3rd studio album, ‘Check Your Head’, merging together elements of punk with rap. The early 90s also saw huge advancements in garment engineering thanks to new technical fabrics & performance gear from brands like The North Face who really started to flex their muscles in the outdoors apparel game.

The introduction of the Nuptse in 1992 not only marked the next generation of down, it also started a revolution in hip hop culture. Big Timberland boots, baggy jeans, flannel shirts and a big Nuptse jacket all went hand in hand. For those living on the snow swept streets of NYC in the colder months it also kept you really warm.
