The first offering is out now from Reebok by Pyer Moss' Collection 3. Split into two drops, the second of which hits stores December 14, the story continues Kerby Jean-Raymond's exploration of the human condition and bringing light to forgotten stories as another chapter of his "American, Also."

In addition to men's and women's apparel, Collection 3 introduces the Pyer Moss Experiment 4 "Fury Trail" sneaker.
