This week’s list of weekly product drops begins our transition into outerwear, all the while maintaining staples like the T-shirt and cap. Interestingly enough, The late Notorious B.I.G. is represented in two drops, seen in the Patta x Roma Publications ‘Tupac Biggie’ homage T-shirt, and Versace’s re-issue of one of Biggie’s most treasured sunglasses. Palace and Supreme continue to release a steady stream of tees and hoodies but mix in a number of nylon jackets along with beanies. For those looking for more of a traditional coat with a twist, clothsurgeon and Monkey Time work with British textiles manufacturer Dormeuil for unique overcoats, vests, and bombers.
Key items this week include the Napa by Martine Rose’s T-Emin jacquard jacket, Supreme’s studded hoodie, GORE-TEX Court Jacket, and Loro Piana wool coat. Followed by the two accessories in the form of the Fendi vintage-style belt bag and the Versace Notorious B.I.G. sunglasses.
