FIORUCCI PRE-SPRING 2021
Fiorucci’s pre-spring 2021 explores the essence of Italian road trips and classic formula one. This is the brand’s second collection to include menswear, designed by their artistic director Daniel W. Fletcher. Denim two pieces, knitted vest tops and boiler suits all reference the racing theme. Fiorucci’s classic design motifs, like the cherub graphic, are still heavily prevalent on the pieces, and accentuate the Italian suave that has defined the label since the 60s.
BAPE X COMME des GARÇONS
Tomaki Nagao’s on going collaboration with CDG has provided some quality garms over the years, and this capsule is no different. In April, BAPE launched their outpost stall in Dover Street Market’s new Osaka store, and the brands have showed no signs of stopping their partnership since. Replacing the iconic PLAY heart on a selection of staples, including striped tees and hoodies, the collection’s attentiveness to class and simplicity makes it a must buy for anyone into their Japanese streetwear.
STONE ISLAND FW20 COLLECTION
Debuting yet another masterclass in outerwear, Stone Island’s FW2020 combines technical cuts with winter repellent fabrics. The clothing’s minimal tones make them highly wearable purchases: beige, burgundy and khaki are particularly prevalent, but they come at a price of course. No one does coating quite like the Italian brand.
DOVER STREET MARKET COVID-19 RELIEF T-SHIRTS
Rei Kawakubo’s fashion emporium have been raising money for Covid Relief through a collection of esteemed t-shirt collaborations. Off-White, AwakeNY and Noah are just a triplet of names participating for the cause, which looks to support healthcare workers through these difficult times.
Jim Longden “greatest Trick” garms
Emerging designer Jim Longden has dropped some serious heat over recent years, finding itself in DSM and on the bodies of many artists too. This tee and hoodie release is one of our favourite graphic pieces yet, with the words “the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist” scrawled underneath a demonic image. You can buy his new clobber here.
GANG CORP ‘BLACK BUSINESS’ COLLECTION
Bootlegging Chanel’s double C motif into their logo, Gang Corp's latest capsule looks to raise money for NAACP. The skater group met through a group chat, but have been releasing content on their Instagram ever since. The 'Black Business' tee is one their hardest designs , and its printed on Russell Athletic blanks - so you know it's of a real quality.
STÜSSY / NIKE AIR ZOOM SPIRIDON KUKINI
Stüssy and Nike have teamed up again after their coveted air zoom spiridon. Offering a more sporty affair, with the Kukuni’s breathable materials, this release again sold out very quickly, but hopefully will be available at cheaper prices on resale sites. The model is perfect for any tracksuit-specific fits, which the collaboration also included for this release.
Off-White x Nike Air Jordan 4 “SAIL”
A few feeks ago, Benji B’s club night-cum-record label Deviation Music auctioned an autographed pair of Off-White x Air Jordan 4 “Sail” at $187,000, with all proceedings donated to the Black Curriculum and Inquest U.K. Now, you can purchase Virgil Abloh’s latest trainer on a whole host of websites. Currently, the shoe is only available in ‘women’s’ sizes, but the demand will hopefully push out a few more.
CARE FREE X MIZUNO
Damien Malontie’s Care Free have been the subject of many steezy tee drops, but their new Mizuno’s are something else. The trainer fanatic and streetwear don is a known lover of the Japanese brand and their first collaboration fails to disappoint. Released with socks, the Sky Medal’s are currently sold out on CareFree’s website, but you may be able to grab a pair off Patta’s new app… if you are lucky.
