Celebrating the 36th Edition of the America’s Cup and over 160 years of competitive sailing, official competition outfitters North Sails team up with the main sponsor Prada for an exclusive capsule collection. The collection takes inspiration from the host country for the 2021 competition - New Zealand. The names of the pieces are taken from different places and aspects of New Zealand culture. With its stunning, untouched natural surroundings the collection focuses on the use of sustainable, high-performance materials with a commitment to protecting the ocean. The collection sits at the cutting edge of outdoor-wear and sailing design.
North Sails have a longstanding relationship with the competition dating back to the 1980s. The brand has outfitted teams of the competition and brought home 12 victories since 1988. Prada has been a sponsor for the competition for some time now. The Italian brand's influence is clear to see throughout the collection, with sporty, minimally styled silhouettes bring together the best in outdoor clothing tech with sustainable materials with a future-oriented vision.
