由日本服裝及平面藝術設計師倉石一樹主理，備受期待的系列第二波產品以The North Face Urban Exploration 2018冬季的Seamless主題創作。 「在我眼中，Seamless意味著你可以把衣服穿搭去工作，也可以作為週末的悠閒服飾。」倉石一樹解釋道：「所以這個系列沒有任何界限。我認為“Seamless”這個概念是指不論場合、地點或心情如何，你都可以隨意穿搭這些衣服。」
The North Face Urban Exploration 一直以實用與時尚兼備為設計重點 ，將高品質的戶外機能服裝以城市風格呈現出來。倉石一樹以他獨特的日式極簡風格，結合了優質物料和創新細節，展現了他所擅長的高機能街頭風格。他認為「功能應該走在設計之前」，故此在所有單品中加入了高端而實用的服裝科技及精密的細節，打造這個可穿性極高的Kazuki系列。
Kazuki系列第二波產品3 件備受注目的單品均融入了The North Face的「可穿戴技術」：

Created in collaboration with Japanese designer/graphic artist Kazuki Kuraishi, part two of this highly anticipated collection is focused on his interpretation of TNF Urban Exploration’s “Seamless” theme. “In my mind, ‘Seamless’ means that you can wear it to work, and also on the weekend,” Kazuki explains, “so there aren’t really any boundaries. I perceive ‘Seamless’ as clothes you can simply wear, no matter the occasion or place or mood.”
Attuned to TNF Urban Exploration’s vision to balance utility with fashion — where high-quality outdoor-inspired silhouettes are translated for the urban setting — Kazuki has created a unique modern-street look that combines premium materials and innovative details with his distinctive Japanese-minimalist styling. Known for creating a very wearable style elevated by technical/utility elements and decorative finishes, Kazuki says “function came first before design” in this collection.
Incorporating TNF’s modern “wearable technologies” in his designs, the second-drop Kazuki collection features three key outerwear pieces:
Meanwhile, street-casual items in padded quilting, seamless fleece and durable Cordura® offer exceptional winter warmth with contemporary styling:
Famed as an exceptional “functional streetwear” designer, Kazuki’s career began as an intern for NIGO at the iconic Japanese brand, A Bathing Ape; and flourished under the mentorship of Hiroshi Fujiwara of fragment design. Today, he’s evolved his own signature style that combines a clean “lifestyle aesthetic” with an “easy to wear” approach — yet, always with technical acumen.
