TNF Black Series x Kazuki Kuraishi Kimono Jacket
“Japanese designer, Kazuki Kuraishi, has collaborated with The North Face Black Series on this fashion-forward Kimono Jacket. This is something TNF has already experimented with and, in my opinion, it works perfectly for the brand’s elevated Black Series collection.”
Kapital Boro Denim Jacket
“Kapital’s new Boro Denim Jacket comes with an all-over patchwork look, giving the jacket a premium and dense edge. The work that goes into such pieces is definitely visible through the final result, and makes it 100% worth the investment.”
Cav Empt TUT Card Heavy Hoodie
“Cav Empt pays close attention to detail with its latest hoodie. The piece has an over-dyed green tone and is finished with the brand’s logo embroidered over the back, together with a graphically-charged print over the chest. Cop yours quick before they sell out!”
visvim Irving Shirt
“visvim presents the traditional Cuban collar bowling shirt in a luxurious white satin. The piece is brought together with cotton blend embroidery over the chest, together with a logo print over the back. This shirt is perfect if you want to go for a more luxe version of the now-trending bowling shirt.”
NEIGHBORHOOD Crew Tee
“NEIGHBORHOOD goes all in on the branding with this Crew Tee — not only does it arrive with distinctive dye treatments all over, but graphic placements throughout. If you’re into big logos, then this is definitely the piece for you.”
YAH! Oversized Patched Tie-Dye Tee Dress
“Ok, this is definitely for the more vintage-hippie style lovers. YAH! has made some one-of-one oversized patched tie-dye pieces, exclusively available at Opening Ceremony. Of course, this piece is not for everyone, but an interesting piece for sure.”
sacai x Nike LDWaffle
“Another beautiful Japanese creation. sacai’s anticipated Nike collaboration finally dropped in the EU on Thursday — congrats if you managed to get your hands on a pair! The brands fuse two iconic Nike silhouettes into a hybrid design with two themes. This special edition pair combines the Waffle Daybreak and the LDV in one shoe. One of the best sneakers to release this year in my opinion.”
GOLF le FLEUR* x Converse Chuck ’70 Hi
“Tyler, The Creator and Converse continue their collaborative series, this time in some colorful velvet materials. Let us know in the comments what you think about this pair!”
BAPE x Suicoke OG-056
“Add some Japanese steeze to your summer outfits with these new BAPE x Suicoke jawnz. This slip-on pair has an adjustable PVC form and camouflage straps — the perfect summer cop.”
99% IS Covered Hood
“As you probably know, 99% IS creates some wild designs. Most recently, the brand’s latest drawstring pants have been spotted on some of our favorite celebs and street style savvys. This week, 99% IS dropped some full-coverage face hoods. The made-in-Korea product is perfect for keeping the summer bugs out, or good if you’re just having a bad hair day.”
