The arrival of August has naturally meant the release of more and more fall and winter collections. Its a selection that has included some of the most hyped brands, unveiling their drops for the colder months, with Supreme treating us to a teaser of what to expect later this month and Palace dropping a full lookbook for its new autumn range. Other big announcements include Wood Wood carrying on its birthday celebrations with an adidas Originals collaboration full of football-inspired gems, and the legendary Italian sportswear brand Stone Island returning with another instalment of its ultra technical Shadow Project collection — featuring some strong outerwear pieces for the colder months ahead.
Here’s a round up of the most hyped products and collections that are dropping in Europe this month — and, of course, where you’ll be able to cop them.
Parra’s 2017 Summer Collection
For its 2017 summer collection, Amsterdam brand Parra has dropped a graphic-heavy collection of streetwear staples. Featuring everything from coach jackets and T-shirts to tote bags and key rings, the collection is packed with warm weather pieces ideal for the last days of season. Parra’s 2017 summer collection is available now, directly from the brand’s web store.
Christopher Raeburn’s Latest Eastpak Collaboration
The latest designer collaboration from Eastpak sees British designer Christopher Raeburn repurposing old military uniforms for a new collection. The limited edition bags come in two different styles and were created using three distinct camouflages and neon yellow border force jackets. Christopher Raeburn’s Eastpak collaboration is available now from retailers such as the END. web store.
New Balance “Flimby Pack”
New Balance‘s UK factory in Flimby is set to reach its 35th anniversary this year, and with that in mind the brand has decided to celebrate by launching a new commemorative pack. The aptly-titled “Flimby Pack” features four classic New Balance silhouettes, with the 1500, 991, 770 and Epic-TR all given an update in premium nubuck and leather and a color palette of navy, light blue, white and grey. The “Flimby Pack” is available now from retailers including Aberdeen’s Hanon.
YEEZY Jewelry at colette
Kanye West‘s jewelry collaboration with Jacob & Co. has finally hit the shelves of the (soon-to-close) iconic French retailer colette. The collection features a selection of necklaces inspired by 14th-century Florentine art and religious imagery, as well as a ring that bares the “this is a god dream” lyric from Kanye’s own “Ultralight Beam.” The YEEZY jewelry is available now from the colette web store.
PUMA x Jeff Staples’ NTRVL Collection
PUMA has unveiled its latest collaboration with Jeff Staples and his namesake brand — a collection which features a wide-ranging selection of apparel, as well as remakes of the Limitless NETFIT and Suede IGNITE silhouettes, designed to cover every aspect of someone’s day to day life, whether that’s going to work or going to the gym. The NTRVL collection is available now from retailers including Footpatrol.
Acne Studios’ Jimmy Sneaker
Swedish brand Acne Studios has taken inspiration from vintage runner silhouettes to release new sneaker styles for both men and women. The “Jimmy,” which dropped alongside the female “Joriko,” features exaggerated plastic spoilers and soles that are designed to resemble a computer keyboard, coming in either an off white/torquouse colorway or a beige/smoked colorway. The “Jimmy” sneakers are available now from the Acne Studios web store.
Stone Island Shadow Project 2017 Fall/Winter Collection
Stone Island’s Shadow Project range is where the Italian brand tests out its new innovations and its ultra technical features, and — in that sense — the line’s 19th collection is no different. Packed full of the kind of premium outerwear we’ve all come to expect from Stone Island, the collection also includes the addition of features such as “Tilt Pockets” and elasticated “Articulation Tunnels.” The first pieces from the Stone Island Shadow Project’s 2017 fall/winter drop are available now from the brand’s web store.
Wood Wood x adidas Originals Capsule Collection
After releasing a series of 15th anniversary collaborations over the course of the summer, Wood Wood’s birth celebrations reached a crescendo with the unveiling of this adidas Originals link up. The undoubted standout pieces of the football-influenced drop are the commemorative shirt and the “Madness/Mayhem” Gazelles – but the accompanying cap and football scarf aren’t bad either. The collection will be launching on August 10 at a special Wood Wood event in Copenhagen.
Palace’s 2017 Autumn Drop
There aren’t many drops more hotly anticipated than a new Palace release, and the lookbook for 2017 autumn is promising another ultra-hyped collection. Featuring a range of retro-inspired graphics and garments, the collection also includes some strong denim pieces. The stand out, though, has got to be the bright red loafers teased in the lookbook. Palace’s 2017 autumn collection will be available from August 11 at the brand’s London and New York locations.
