By · in Fashion 

The last week of January is the final run of retail slump during which most people’s bank accounts are still recovering from holiday shopping. So that means it’s an especially opportune time to pick up some low-key product drops before the spending cycle takes full force again.

Those still in school will find essential releases perfect for post-winter break flexing via Uniqlo U, while others may want to gear up for two of the biggest events of February — the Olympic Games and Chinese New Year — with some Ralph and Gucci.

Other notable drops include the Lemaire-designed Uniqlo U Spring/Summer 2018 collection, BAPE x Dr. Martens collection, PACCBET x Carhartt WIP collab and the Grailed 100 Fall/Winter 2018 launch.
