Pokémon GO Gucci Upcoming Collaboration Teased
Gucci has unveiled the #TheNorthFacexGucci on Dec. 22 with series of tweets containing a campaign shot in the Alps and photographed in the style of a group holiday in the mountains. The North Face itself is a popular outdoor recreation product company that is known for its clothing, footwear, and outdoor equipment. Since the collaboration announcement, Gucci's tweets have been promoting #TheNorthFacexGucci outdoor clothing, knitted hat, and printed backpacks. Fans have been speculating that trainers will soon spot new costumed Pokémon in the wild in an event-exclusive Field Research task. It will be no surprise that in parallel we see Pikachu all over the #TheNorthFacexGucci collection.
Pokémon GO is no stranger to partnerships with luxury fashion houses. The latest collaboration was with a French luxury leather goods company, Longchamp, which was announced in October this year. The collaboration event, Longchamp Fashion Week, saw new costumed Pokémon, shiny preview, Longchamp avatar item, and an event field research. Last week, Pokémon GO teamed up with Starbucks in Asia. During the event, Starbucks locations turn into PokéStops and Gyms.
