The past week has seen some strong products dropping in Europe, with J.W.Anderson‘s wide-ranging collaboration with Uniqlo finally releasing and Balenciaga’s love-or-hate Triple S sneakers selling out almost instantly. The next week has more big releases, with French record label and fashion house Maison Kitsuné unveiling its first ever fragrance, while the long-awaited NAPA by Martine Rose collection is also set to finally hit stores.
It’s also set to be a strong week for footwear, with a new squash-inspired Busenitz from adidas, a collaboration between Vans and London label Aries, and a collection of uber-technical boots from ALYX collaborator ROA. We’ve compiled the best products dropping in Europe this week, as well as all of the information you’ll need to get your hands on them.
Our Legacy Fall/Winter 2017
Swedish label Our Legacy is known for its understated luxury, and the brand’s latest collection only serves to reinforce that. The collection mixes minimalistic Western wear with sportswear elements, for a drop that is described by the brand as “a study of small-town Americana seen through a progressive lens.” The full collection, including this black leather shearling jacket, is available now from retailers including Malmo’s Tres Bien.
ROA Fall/Winter 2017 Collection
You may not have heard of ROA, but the Italian hiking boot brand announced itself last year with an ALYX collaboration. Those chunky silhouettes feature again in the brand’s latest collection, with innovative technical materials for hiking mixed with the brand’s modern aesthetic. The full collection is available now from retailers such as Browns.
Aries x Vans
London’s Aries — the brand from Sofia Pantera and Palace-affiliate Fergus Purcell – has transported its trademark graphics on to two classic Vans silhouettes. Featuring a cartoon tiger motif that the brand have used before, as well as the words “ARIES ARISE” and a zebra-print pattern, the collection includes two colorways of the Sk8-Hi and two colorways of the Slip-On. The collection is available now from the Goodhood web store.
NAPA by Martine Rose
North London designer Martine Rose’s first collaboration with Napapijri has been around for a while, with the lookbook being released all the way back in April. Now, after a six month wait, the collection is finally available, with the strong ’90s-inspired outerwear pieces dropping at the perfect time for the colder months ahead. The full collection is available now from retailers such as Machine-A in London.
adidas Busenitz Indoor Super
For this release, adidas has mixed its classic Busenitz skate shoe with the OG Indoor Super — a classic squash silhouette. The result sees the Indoor Super’s blue and red touches and gum sole transported onto a skate sneaker, with a breathable mesh lining and a modified canvas tongue. adidas’ Busenitz Indoor Super is available now from select retailers.
Tourne de Transmission Fall/Winter 2017 Collection
For its latest collection, British label Tourne de Transmission has taken inspiration from Ride’s 1990 single “Nowhere.” Explaining the relevance, the brand’s creative director said that it perfectly sums up an individual’s “frustrated inability to change a bigger situation.” The collection features a number of slogans and graphics, with the standout piece being the “Vapour” patchwork mixed-camo and overdyed MA1 bomber. The collection is available now from the brand’s web store.
Moncler x Craig Green Collection
The collaboration between Moncler and Craig Green has seen the former’s reputation for outerwear mixed with the latter’s avant-garde design aesthetic. The latest drop from the two features padded down jackets and sweaters with padded shoulders that reference Green’s familiar military influence. The full capsule is available now from END. and other select retailers.
Stone Island “Frost Finish” Capsule
Forever pushing the boundaries of technical materials, Italian label Stone Island has released its latest experimental finish. The “Frost Finish” collection sees pieces such as nylon-woven puffed parkas and cable-knitted sweaters given a marbled “frost corrosion” fabric treatment. The full “Frost” collection is available now from the Stone Island web store.
Maison Kitsuné x Heeley Parfums “Note de Yuzu”
Since it was founded in 2002, Maison Kitsuné has become a multi-faceted creative force which crosses over from music to fashion. For its latest project, the Parisian brand teamed up with Heeley Parfums to release the “Note de Yuzu” fragrance, which takes inspiration from traditional Japanese yuzu baths. The fragrance is set to drop at all Maison Kitsuné stores and Heeley retailers on September 28.
