Stone Island x Porter and Seven Other Key European Drops
As well as new bits from Soulland, adidas Originals and A-COLD-WALL*.
The biggest drops of the past week saw Supreme launch its latest The North Face collaboration, while Palace released the next instalment of its Winter 2017 collection. The next week isn’t looking too bad either, with Stone Island and Porter releasing their first joint capsule since 2015. Aside from that, the next seven days will also see a bevy of hotly anticipated adidas Originals collaborations — including with wings & horns and Sneakersnstuff — as well as pieces from Soulland, Parra and Diadora.
The next week also sees the long-awaited release of A-COLD-WALL*‘s Air Force 1 collaboration with NikeLab, as the London brand drops the sneakers at a one-off pop-up in its home city. We’ve put together a list of all the best products dropping in Europe this week, as well as what you’ll need to do to get your hands on them.
Parra “Get Me Out of Here” Collection
Dutch artist Parra has returned with his latest capsule collection, with an array of staple pieces bearing his artworks. Some of the standout pieces include a faux-shearling jacket that features an embroidered logo, a stone-washed hoodie and a “Star Struck” long-sleeve. The full collection is available now from the Parra web store.
Soulland x Bruta
The first collection from Danish brand Soulland and London’s Bruta saw the two take influence from house plants in Soulland creative director Silas Adler‘s apartment and from the colorful artwork of Peter Doig. Featuring floral embroidery, the collection includes shirts in navy, white and black. The collection is available now from Soulland’s stores and Bruta’s web store.
Antonioli INNER x Saucony Grid 9000 Milano
For its collaboration with American sportswear brand Saucony, Milanese store Antonioli INNER took inspiration from its hometown. Taking on the Grid 9000 silhouette, the store gave it a cream and grey suede upper, with metallic gold highlights along the tongue as well as a gold and green corresponding panels. The colorway is a reference to Milan’s iconic Duomo. The capsule is available now in-store and online.
Stone Island x Porter
Having last worked together to celebrate Porter’s 80th anniversary in 2015, Stone Island has once again worked with the Japanese bag specialists. The latest capsule mixes Porter’s expertise with Stone Island’s legacy of innovative fabrics and experimental techniques. The collection — which includes the backpack, duffle and portfolio bags — is available now from Stone Island’s web store, with prices ranging from £175 GBP to £525 GBP (approximately $230 USD to $695 USD).
A-COLD-WALL* x NikeLab Air Force 1 High
The collaboration between London’s A-COLD-WALL* and NikeLab first appeared back in January, and is now seeing the light of day. The deconstructed Air Force 1 High comes in a tonal colorway that A-COLD-WALL*’s Samuel Ross described as allowing “the shoe to breathe, and it feels very minimalistic as a result.” The sneakers will be available at an as-yet-unannounced London location on October 21.
Hanon x Diadora “St. Clair”
To mark 35 years since Aberdeen FC defeated Real Madrid to win the 1983 European Cup, Scottish store Hanon has paid tribute to its hometown club — and the St. Clair ferry that took fans from Scotland to Gothenburg for the final — for a Diadora collaboration. The sneaker’s colorway references the ferry, while the “112” on the side marks the time of the winning goal and the rain pattern on the insole recalls the wet weather that night. The sneaker will drop in-store on October 25, before going online three days later.
adidas Originals by wings+horns Fall/Winter 2017
Having worked together for several seasons, adidas Originals and Canadian brand wings+horns have revealed another strong collaboration. The collection features reworked adidas staples, with pieces such as a Bonded Wool Full Zip Hoodie and a Double Waffle Knit Pullover Hoodie, while the two brands also included some classic sneaker silhouettes in the capsule. The full collection will be available online via adidas and wings+horns, as well as select retailers worldwide on October 26.
adidas Originals x Sneakersnstuff NMD CS2 “Class of 1999” Pack
Having teased the capsule for a while, the collaboration between adidas Originals and Swedish retailer Sneakersnstuff was finally unveiled this week. Titled “Class of 99,” the capsule sees the NMD CS2 silhouette wrapped in classic collegiate colorways of green/white and burgundy/gold. To accompany the sneakers, the retailer has also created heavyweight Russell Athletic tracksuits. The collection is set to drop on October 28 via Sneakersnstuff’s official website, with sneakers priced at $179 USD, and the tracksuits costing $69 USD for the hoodie and $59 USD for the sweatpants.
