The North Face Nuptse is a ’90s cult classic that was reissued a few years ago as part of the brand’s “icons” collection. Since then, the coat has been worn by models, by rappers, and by Kardashians; it’s been upgraded by Supreme and Margiela.
Just recently, though, we’ve noticed the Nuptse popping up on cool teens across New York (and beyond) — and not just any Nuptse, but the purple Nuptse.
Since we still have a month or two of cold weather ahead, now’s as good a time as any to treat yourself to an on-sale puffer in this punchy shade that’s now just $150. (And if purple isn’t your thing, there are a handful of discounted Nuptses, including an understated Army green for men.)
