Editor's Notes: Patta x Napa is coming, and silent proclamations aren't on the agenda.
Although the age of silent streetwear is well and truly upon us, the bold-natured streetwear codes of old aren't afraid of the spotlight. When it comes to streetwear's legendary brands, which come to mind? Supreme? The Hundreds? Undoubtedly, Patta, too.
Given its illustrious seventeen-year history, Patta has certainly earned titles like '"veteran" and "legendary." Rising to the top in an era that was everything but silent, the brand continues to be expressive – loud but considered.
For its latest collaboration, the Dutch brand taps Napapijri for a capsule collection, spotlighting timeless staples. The partnership arrives as a natural progression of the relationship shared by the brands, with Patta's presentation of the Napa x Martine Rose collaboration last year at its Zeedijk 93 space and the opening of Patta's Milano Chapter.
Streetwear staples are, of course, the focal point of the collaboration, with each product given heavy print finishes that the early 2000s would be proud of. Napapijri's classic Skidoo jacket is at the forefront of the capsule, supplemented with short and long sleeve t-shirts. Branding on each piece is heavy and unapologetically so.
The Patta x Napa collection will be available via Patta London, Amsterdam, Milano, and online from September 24.
