This week’s list of weekly product drops sees a number of exclusive items mixed in with pre-season offerings. While names like visvim and A-COLD-WALL* team up with online retailers MR PORTER and Matches Fashion, respectively, BAPE and NOAH have released a special batch of items celebrating both an 8-year anniversary, and the opening of Dover Street Market Los Angeles.
Arguably the two biggest names in street fashion right now, Palace and Supreme, are also releasing a number of items that are sure to sell out immediately. First up, Palace continues to push its boundaries by teaming up with one of the world’s most recognizable heritage brands, Ralph Lauren, for a sizable collection. In this collection we see the name Palace joined with Ralph Lauren’s iconic Polo logo; placed on everything from jackets, caps, shirts, rugby tops, house slippers, all the way to skate decks. Supreme matches Palace’s big release with a number of bold and bright items including a collaboration with Nike and COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT, as well as a small release of hoodies and tees with British visual artist, Chris Cunningham.
Key items this week include the Palace x Ralph Lauren Kickflip Bear knitted top, the Palace x Ralph Lauren Polo skate decks, BAPE China’s anniversary Skark Hoodie Mask, visvim’s Yukata Oversized Wool-Trimmed Quilted Nylon Down Coat for MR PORTER, and Supreme’s Casino-Print jacket and its SOG KeyTron folding knife.
Supreme FW18 Collection Drop 12
With the Supreme x COMME des GARÇONS Shirt x Nike AF1 dropping this weekend, the New York streetwear stalwart kept it a bit more quiet on the apparel collab side for good measure. This Thursday will see the recently announced Chris Cunningham pieces arrive alongside the casino-themed goods, Obama repeat-print tees and SOG® KeyTron folding knife.
