KAPPA'S COLLABORATION W/ CHRISTIAN DADA
Designer Masinori Morikawa’s Christian Dada label is inspired by the art movement ‘Dadaism’, which originated in Zürich. Their latest collaborative effort with Kappa is both striking and intuitive, championing a huge variety of graphics. Kappa always works well with high-end brands, the historic logo can be plastered with other labels, like on many of these designs, or subtly stitched into the back of a jumper. The collection includes stripy shirts, classic tracksuits and even bomber jackets, proving that the sportswear pioneers can come out of their comfort zone.
BURBERRY'S SILK SHIRT
Similar to the Prada piece we covered last week, Burberry has dropped a luxury, oriental looking short sleeve inspired by their archive prints. Churning up scarf patterns from the 80s and 90s, and crafting it into a 100% silk garment, this is one of the biggest summer statement pieces the year. Retailing at $460, pocket change if you ask me, this universally affordable shirt is one you should all be purchasing right now.
CONVERSE ONE STAR X DOVER STREET MARKET
The One Star silhouette has been reimagined by many brands and artists, most notably Tyler, the Creator, A$AP Nast and Patta. However, Dover Street has really outdone themselves here, producing one of the nicest variations so far. Limited to two colourways, a black and off-white as well as an all over cream, the unique stitching and gold embroidery creates an authentic 80s aesthetic making them perfect for the Autumn months.
PATERSON'S FALL/WINTER 2018 COLLECTION
Personally, I only became aware of Paterson a few days ago, but the New Jersey brand seems very prevalent in the streetwear scene, especially in America. Their new collection features plenty of winter-wear to keep you warm through the harsh months and snowy season. For me, the stand out pieces are the overalls, patterned puffer jackets and fluffy fleeces. If you are worried about Palace eating up your wallet this Winter, then Patterson’s drops will be a great alternative.
FILA'S COLLABORATION W/ PIERRY CARDIN
Polka dots are all the craze of this collection, which is a welcoming change from the classic Fila Disruptors that many people own. Pierry Cardin is now 96 years of age, and therefore a highly unusual collaborator with the Italian brand. The collab also boasts all over printed polo shirts and a lot more, which you can cop exclusively at Urban Outfitters.
CALIROOTS’ NEW TRACKSUIT
A cheap substitute to the lilac palm angels trousers, this tracksuit is composed of a luxurious, light-weight material, creating a pipeline fit. They are part of Caliroots’ first ever release, which boasts leopard print patterns and summer-suited shorts too. This is a promising first collection from the shop, who is more known for promoting alternative brands in their store. Hopefully, this is the start of many collections, so getting on their new essential range would be a wise idea.
