So, we’ll let Yulia take it from here to give you a full rundown of this week’s best drops below.
Kapital Gauze Bandana Patchwork Jacket
“Kapital’s second drop for SS19 includes this dope bandana patchwork jacket. This jacket is made from a traditional Japanese patchworking technique using bandana panels. Who was lucky enough to cop?”
Marcelo Burlon Scared Face Knit Sweater
“This sweater’s acid colors immediately catch your attention, and so does the design of a shrieking lady on the front. It’s spooky and dark (in a cool way), and I really dig this piece from the new collection… I kinda wish there wasn’t a white logo on the back, though.”
Supreme Patchwork Tie-Dye Hoodie
“I love it when mixed techniques are used in garment creation. Here, we have a Supreme hoodie made of tie-dye material which then turns into patchwork, and looks super cozy.”
Nike Vibe Tie-Dye Tee
“Looking for that perfect tie-dye T-shirt for under $40? Well, unless you can make one yourself, I recommend going with this one from Nike. You’re welcome.”
Chinatown Market TY Rhinestone Tee
“Wow, this season we’re getting a lot of stuff with rhinestones and Swarovski crystals… But I say it’s not tacky when it’s kind of ironic. This tee by Chinatown Market features the brand’s signature ‘Thank you have a nice day’ phrase and rose.”
sacai x Nike LDWaffle
“Arguably the most anticipated drop of the week — the LDWaffle by sacai x Nike. We’ve been waiting for this for a long time, so we’ve all had enough time to learn why this shoe is so special. I hope you managed to cop!”
sacai x Nike Blazer Mid
“Another pair by sacai x Nike. To be honest, I stan the Blazer Mid more than the LDWaffle, because of the silhouette — a hybrid of the Blazer and the Dunk. It’s not easy to create something so sophisticated with pretty simple colors, but this black, white, and blue version may be an exception.”
GmbH x ASICS Gel-Kayano 5 OG
“This sneaker between ASICS and GmbH is my favorite type of collab, because the design of the sneakers is very subtle, but still gives you an elevated look. The drop also includes three pairs of pastel colors, perfect for the summer.”
Fear of God x Nike Air Fear of God 1
“Another drop by Fear of God x Nike. This one is surely eye-catching, thanks to the eye-catching “Orange Pulse” and “Frosted Spruce” colorways. Though these are not as wearable as Air Fear of God Raid, I still like the design of the upper, which has strong luxury vibes.”
UNDEFEATED x adidas Ultraboost 1.0
“UNDEFEATED partnered with adidas to create a pair of sneakers in honor of Memorial Day Weekend. These white Ultraboosts feature UNDEFEATED’s “Five Strikes” branding in red and blue colors, as well as stars and stripes detail on the back pull loop.”
Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Leather Slides
“If you truly are an OG (as in Original Gentleman), then you’ll not want miss these new luxurious leather slides. The oversized Intrecciato details do make these slides look modern, yet true to Bottega Veneta’s DNA. Not sure if you have Gucci flip-flops to ditch, but if you do…”
Prada Tie-Dye Mini Bag
“SSENSE always has the best exclusives, and that’s facts. This week the retailer has dropped an exclusive collection of tie-dye Prada pieces, including apparel and accessories. Though the collection is for women, I wouldn’t worry about it… Just look at this dope tiny bag.”
Fendi x Gentle Monster Cat-Eye Sunglasses
“Fendi has teamed up with Gentle Monster to create this new steezy collection of sunglasses, named Gentle Fendi. It features Gentle Monster’s signature cat-eye frames coming in three different shades. The black pair features a yellow plaque with contrasting color logos and are dope AF. Something tells me this won’t be the last pair of shades this season with branding on the lenses…”
Maison Margiela Two Tone Silver Ring
“Maison Margiela’s new collection is fire, especially the jewelry line. This Italian-made signet ring is constructed from silver and comes with a dope two-tone design.”
Kapital Embellished Safety Chain
“It’s the little details that will help elevate your ’fits. This type of accessory from Kapital is not for everyone (and not just because of the $285 price tag), however, if you’re used to rocking chains, this would add up nicely.”
