It's no secret that the way we shop has changed in recent years. And as such, so has the way fashion brands and retailers release product. Retailer-exclusive drop models have been adopted by high fashion labels and streetwear names alike, meaning you need to know where to go if you want the limited, less-seen-everywhere goods. And Montreal-based luxury retailer SSENSE is one retailer that's teeming with the exclusives.
From big players like Off-White™ and Raf Simons to smaller labels such as AFFIX and Perks and Mini, we've browsed the array of SSENSE-only collections and picked out the products that make our shopping list.

Raf Simons x EASTPAK Backpack
Raf Simons collaborated with EASTPAK?? We hear you ask. Well, yes he did, and the results are pretty good. This SSENSE-only backpack from the joint venture comes bearing loads of nifty places to put your day to day essentials.
Acne Studios Socks
Swedish label Acne Studios pays tribute to '90s craze Monster in My Pocket with a special capsule collection. This pair of socks, which sadly feature no monsters or pockets, is still a sweet little foot cover for summer.
Telfar Tote Bag
Provider of 2019's must-have bag, this tote by Telfar will make you feel good for three reasons. It's faux-leather, it can be used in place of reusable plastic bags, and it's bright damn orange.
Dries Van Noten x Mika Ninagawa T-Shirt
We love Dries for its loud, psychedelic prints, and this tee fits that bill. Mika Ninagawa is a Japanese photographer and director, and here she teams up with the Belgian designer on a piece from the SSENSE-exclusive capsule.
One of minimal fashion's key players, Christophe Lemaire balances designing his own collections by collaborating with the likes of Uniqlo. Here, the master of minimal provides for a generation of men hungry for more varied footwear options with a sleek black loafer.
Virgil Abloh is a busy busy man. But still not too busy for his Off-White™ to drop an SSENSE-only collection. There are plenty of highlights in it, but the summer-ready paint-splatter tee is a key piece for us.
Off-White™ iPhone 11 Case
We told you — plenty of highlights. And we just had to include another one from the collection. Stamped with one of Abloh's signature make-it-obvious graphics, this bright red case is the rightful home for your iPhone 11 Pro.
From blockbuster brand Off-White™ to one that's relatively more under-the-radar. Co-founded by Kiko Kostadinov, London-based utility wear label AFFIX knows how to do simple well. Going down the route of multiple retailer-exclusive drops, this hoodie colorway is one of its best.
