The North Face may have been built for the great outdoors, but the band is now just as at home in the urban jungle. So it's only natural that for its latest collaboration, the brand teamed up with NYC-based Extra Butter to create a lineup of gear that takes its cues from the city. The upcoming "Night Crawlers" collection utilizes a bold, cityscape print inspired by the after-dark version of New York depicted in classic noir movies.

"Growing up a New Yorker, I loved seeing films that had my city," says Bernie Gross, creative director for Extra Butter, "it made it feel like I was living in this movie-esque life everyday. The danger, the edge, just an overall energy that I've yet to experience anywhere else. It truly breeds the toughest of characters."

Gross and the Extra Butter team translated that vibe to some of The North Face's classic pieces, like the padded Nuptse jacket and a half-zip, hooded version of the Denali fleece. The collection also includes matching Denali pants, plus a Roos II sling pack, an umbrella, and a beanie. Rounding things out is the Stetler jacket, a weather-proof shell with a quilted lining and custom branding on the sleeve.

Is it the kind of gear that they actually wore in those old noir films? Not exactly. But then, that's not the point. For Gross, it's all about the feeling you get from the clothes. "I wanted to take some of my favorite characters and films that took place in NYC and translate that into a timeless mood," he says. "My goal was for the collection to just immediately transport you to a back-alley scene of a classic NYC film."
