While the past seven days saw the arrival of Pharrell’s hiking-inspired adidas collaboration and a whole slew of high-profile link-ups, the next week is set to be equally packed with must-cop releases. Arguably the stand-out is the latest joint project from Goodhood, as the London-based store continues its 10th birthday celebrations by working with Kyle Ng‘s Brain Dead. Elsewhere, Swedish footwear giant Eytys makes the move into denim, while Iceland’s 66°North releases its latest heavy-duty outerwear as the cold nights draw in.
Other key releases over the next seven days include a winter-ready capsule of scarves from Acne Studios, the second half of Aries‘ hugely popular Vans capsule and the long-awaited arrival of the GORE-TEX iteration of adidas Originals’ NMD CS1 sneaker. As always, we’ve put all the best drops of the week in one place, as well as all the relevant information for how and where to get your hands on them.
Goodhood x Brain Dead
The past few weeks have seen London store Goodhood celebrate its 10th anniversary with a series of collaborations. First up was a capsule with NEIGHBORHOOD, which was followed by a joint release with Dr. Martens. The latest collab sees the store work with L.A.-based brand Brain Dead on a graphic T-shirt. The tee is available now from the Goodhood store, but is strictly limited to 100 editions so you’ll have to act quickly.
66°North Tindur Down Jacket
Icelandic label 66°North was founded to create heavy duty pieces for the nation’s fisherman, and 90 years later its still turning out high quality and hard wearing outerwear pieces. The latest addition is the Tindur Down Jacket, which is made from tough nylon and comes with goose-down insulation. The coat is available now from 66°North’s web store, with each jacket costing €750 EUR (approx. $890 USD).
Eytys’ Unisex Denim Collection
Chunky-soled footwear specialist Eytys has branched out into the denim world, with three new jean silhouettes. The Swedish brand has unveiled the “Cypress” (slim-fitting with a medium-high waist and contrast stitching), the “Benz” (baggy, to be worn long and loose) and the “Boyle” (a baggy and cropped style). For this release, Eytys mixed traditional Japanese denim with other materials such as heavy wool twill and workwear-influenced nylons. The full collection is available now from the Eytys’ web store.
Acne Studios Fall/Winter 2017 Scarf Collection
Acne Studio’s scarves have become one of the Swedish label’s most iconic pieces, with them becoming a must-have accessory across the world. For Fall/Winter 2017, the brand has reworked the item with a range of new patterns such as tartan, tie-dye and logo prints as well as a huge variety of different colors. All of the scarves are available from Acne Studios’ web store.

The sneaker is then finished with detailing such as WOEI’s logo on the heel tabs, and materials such as premium suede and vintage nylon. The sneaker is available now from END. and other stores.
Karim Bakhtaoui’s Jewelry Collection

The collection is heavily influenced by Bakhtaoui’s own memories, with pieces positioned alongside stories from his father or memories of watching Goodfellas. The collection is available now from Bakhtaoui’s web store, and check out our recent interview with the designer/skater if you want to learn more.
