After last week’s Gosha Rubchinskiy drop, the next seven days is set to see another raft of strong releases across the European continent. This time around it’s looking to be a strong week for understated Scandinavian luxury, with Our Legacy, Acne Studios and Norse Projects all releasing new capsules, backed up with big drops from the likes of Balenciaga, New Balance and maharishi.
The next week is also set to feature a slew of top-drawer collaborations, with cult London store Goodhood teaming up with NEIGHBORHOOD to mark the former’s 10th anniversary and Alexander Wang x adidas Originals dropping the third installment of their rave and cycling-influenced Fall/Winter 2017 collection.
As ever, we’ve put together the ten best drops across Europe — as well as all the information you need to cop.

Lazy Oaf Holiday 2017 Collection
For its Holiday 2017 collection, British label Lazy Oaf has returned to its roots and, in particular, memories of going to “illegal raves in muddy fields.” The capsule features key cold-weather pieces, such as a branded fleece quarterzip and a colorblocked sweater, as well as basic pieces such as striped T-shirts.
