Shop the 10 best drops of the week below.
Y/Project x Jean Paul Gaultier Sweater
The collection that doesn’t stop giving. Y/Project x Jean Paul Gaultier has broken the fashion internet. This sweater stands out amongst the rest, though, because it features a striped pattern over the signature body graphic.
Off-White™ Abstract Balaclava
A balaclava is a must-have piece for fall/winter 2022, with brands across the board attempting to assert themselves as the king of the style. Off-White™ leaves little room for any discussion on who the true king is, though.
Axel Arigato Marathon Dip-Dye Sneakers
Axel Arigato’s Marathon Sneaker is not a new arrival, nor is the dip-dyed finish. This bold green hue, however, is. We’re loving the washed-out color, which gives the ’90s-style runner an almost futuristic finish.
ERL Camouflage Padded Jacket
ERL’s padded down jackets are always a highlight of the winter season, and this year we’re treated to one of the most intricate down layers we’ve seen. Each camouflage segment is separately stitched to make sure that ERL’s camouflage stands out from all of the others.
Balenciaga x adidas Speed Trainers
Undoubtedly in the conversation for the most hyped collaboration of 2022, Balenciaga x adidas offers some of the brands’ fan-favorite designs with new collaborative branding. The Balenciaga x adidas Speed Sock Trainer is a favorite of ours.
Aries Fleur Jacket
There’s been a wealth of graphic fleeces on offer this season. We actually picked out two iterations from Gramicci two weeks ago. Aries enters the chat this week with the Fleur Jacket.
Tommy Jeans x Martine Rose Home Slippers
In quieter collaboration news, Tommy Jeans has enlisted the help of Martine Rose to rework some classics. Our essential piece of the collection is the Home Slipper which nods to Tommy’s denim pedigree.
Nike Air Max Scorpion
Nike’s always busy reworking its classics in new colorways, but it’s less common to get a new flagship sneaker from the Swoosh. That said, the Nike Air Max Scorpion promises to be the next big thing from the brand and with new colorways like this Dark Smoke Grey iteration hitting shelves, the future looks very bright for this silhouette.
adidas Originals x and wander Fleece Jacket
Another major collaboration to note this week comes from the Three Stripes. Teaming up with cult Japanese outdoorwear label and wander, adidas treats us to a selection of pieces that balance technical competence with style-forward elements. This fleece jacket has already reserved a regular spot in our fall/winter rotation.
adidas Samba Mexico Shoes
With the World Cup readying to kick off, we’re beginning to get excited, and how better to show that than with a super wearable exclusive Samba? For those who missed out on the recent Wales Bonner Samba collection, this design offers a second chance at a very similar colorway.
