Social climber: how the North Face puffer jacket became street style

By Lauren Cochrane

Celebrity TikTok trend and the ‘pandemic effect’ fuel 400% rise in sales among young urbanites

Forget the camel coat or the classic trench. This winter, investment outerwear is all-weathers friendly, it’s puffy, brightly coloured and has a semi-circle logo in homage to a Californian rock formation. The North Face puffer jackets – such as the classic two-tone Nupste from 1996 – have become both the height of fashion and a familiar sight on streets nationwide. They’re worn by models ranging from Emily Ratajkowski to Kendall Jenner, as well as teenagers in parks everywhere.

These jackets – which cost around £250 new – are a popular secondhand purchase for younger consumers. They are the most searched-for item on Gen Z resale app Depop, with a rise of 500% over the past four months. On eBay, someone searched for The North Face every three seconds from July to December 2020, while vintage store Beyond Retro reported a 315% rise in sales of The North Face items.

A clean slate look to start the New Year | Funmi Fetto

By Funmi Fetto

Face up to a fresh new you with an understated and healthy makeover

You’ve most likely already given up on your New Year Resolutions (I salute anyone who bothered in the first place). So, with that in mind, I’m not going to wheel out a look that calls for huge amounts of effort and willpower. Hence, this embodiment of a clean slate, as per Moschino AW20. All you need are brows (if you have none, fill them in), mascara (even a great lash primer will do), nude pink lips (matt is more understated) and a hint of highlighter (in the corners of your eyes). Beanie hat not obligatory.
