Elsewhere, there are new bits from Samuel Ross‘ A-COLD-WALL*, Common Projects and Acne Studios.
This week also features a range of new collaborations with Patta rekindling its work with Mephisto, while Self Made has joined in colette‘s farewell series of releases and Burberry has recruited Kris Wu for an exclusive collaboration. As always, we’ve compiled a list of the best products dropping in Europe this week, as well as all the information you’ll need to cop.
Acne Studios Spring/Summer 2018 Collection
Having first appeared at Paris Fashion Week back in June, Swedish label Acne Studios’ Spring/Summer 2018 collection has now arrived. As with the brand’s previous releases, the collection features understated luxury pieces and reworked classic shapes, with long tailoring and curved high waists featuring alongside embroidered detailing throughout the collection. The Spring/Summer offering also features an array of brightly-colored pieces, such as reversible bomber jackets and color blocked sweatshirts. The full range is available now from the Acne web store and physical spaces.
Patta x Mephisto
The latest in a long line of joint releases — which has also included collaborations with Vans and FILA — sees Patta work with Mephisto. This is the two brands second collection, following a capsule earlier this year, and sees Patta take on two of the French brand’s handmade silhouettes. The two shoes, the “Laurie” and “Rainbow,” come in smooth leather, with padding, D-ring lacing and a Mephisto Soft-Air sole. Both are available in either “Black/Dark Brown” or “Khaki/Black” colorways. The pack is available now from Patta’s web store and London and Amsterdam stores.
Stone Island Nylon Metal Capsule
In the week that the brand revealed its Spring/Summer 2018 collection, Stone Island also dropped a new two-piece Nylon Metal capsule. The release features a half-zip jacket and a crewneck pullover, both of which are are made from Trilobal Nylon fabric, which gives them a metallic and reflective appearance. This material is then finished using Stone Island’s unique garment dyeing process. The capsule is available now from the Stone Island web store.

After the final release of its Nike Air Force 1 collaboration, London-based A-COLD-WALL* has returned with a capsule for the colder months.

The collection is available now from A-COLD-WALL*’s web store.
Common Projects Fall/Winter 2017
Known for its minimalist sneakers, Common Projects has released another collection of understated luxury footwear.

Self Made x colette
The latest brand to take part in colette’s series of farewell collaborations is French-Italian label Self Made. The joint project sees colette’s iconic logo embroidered on to a minimal tee — available in either white or black — which is then finished with more embroidery detailing, with the two brand’s names subtly appearing on the back. The tee has already dropped once, before selling out almost instantly, but has restocked on colette and is available now.
PORTER Stand Garbstore Exclusive
Although it was previously limited to certain Japanese stockists, London’s Garbstore has got its hands on an exclusive luggage collection from PORTER‘s “PORTER Stand” line.. Every piece in the capsule has been handmade by skilled craftsman, with a range of luxurious tote bags, day packs and helmet bags all on offer. The pieces will be on display in store at Garbstore, and available through its online shop.
Kris Wu x Burberry Collection
For its latest collection, London’s Burberry has worked with Chinese-Canadian artist Kris Wu. The 19-piece collection is inspired by Wu’s personal style, and features graphic sweatshirts, sweatpants, and hoodies embroidered with Kris’s song lyrics and tattoos.
