Supreme usually takes the lead in our weekly drops roundup, but despite this week’s daring Nan Goldin x Supreme release, it was Palace that had us itching to cop — most notably, for the Palace Spring 2018 snakeskin loafers with the gold-tone buckles. Of course, Supreme didn’t disappoint with a few notable main collection pieces, such as the 3M reflective stripe work jacket and the logo-heavy matching hoodie and sweatpants, which will surely catch eyes. Another top contender is KITH, which released a massive “Utah” collection featuring a slew of weather-ready collaboration pieces with Columbia Sportswear, adidas, TUMI, Oakley and G-SHOCK — together, forming the Element Exploration Agency (EEA).

The grunge category finds notable drops including Raf Simon‘s Spring/Summer 2018 Joy Division and Blade Runner pieces, and Hyein Seo‘s macabre-inspired collection. On the more eccentric side, we have GAIKA‘s Armour In Heaven collection — which features experimental prints and materials such as a latex, metallic and “Petrol Camo” — as well as South2 West8, which released some whimsical sheer mesh tie-dye and trek-print outdoors gear.

Raf Simons Spring/Summer 2018 Pieces

The newest drop from Raf Simons‘s Spring/Summer 2018 collection features graphic pieces that pay homage to ’70s English rock band Joy Division and associated act New Order, as well as cult film Blade Runner. The highlight pieces include the Convertible Joy Division Unknown Pleasures two-piece hoodie, which features Peter Saville‘s iconic album artwork and a detachable panel and silver press-stud fastening; the Black “Replicants” Parka, which features a graphic print on the back of a scene from Blade Runner 1982; as well as the text-emblazoned Black Wording Classic Hoodie.

Highlights include the white Layered Lab Coat, the Green Ribbon Bomber Jacket, the grey Slashed T-shirt, as well as the beaded bags and theological accessories.

UNDERCOVER x Cream Soda Collection

Building off the steam of its recently-uncovered collaboration with Supreme, UNDERCOVER now teams up with Cream Soda for its Spring/Summer 2018 collection. Taking us down memory lane to the early days of the Ura-Hara movement in Tokyo, the collection merges UNDERCOVER’s signature punk/underground aesthetics with Cream Soda’s love for rock and roll. In the capsule we see the two brands come together in the form of animal print jackets, black denim jackets, and a pair of all-over-print shoes — all featuring Cream Soda’s Jolly Roger insignia. Although rather small in terms of quantity, the capsule is sure to appease the two brands’ cult following.

Supreme Spring/Summer 2018 Drop 6

Admittedly, this week’s Supreme drop is a bit more low-key. In addition to the Nan Goldin x Supreme pieces, mainline releases include a 3M reflective stripe trucker jacket and logo-emblazoned matching hoodies and sweatpants. However, for those awaiting ‘Preme summer tees, you’re in luck as the NYC-based skate giant just revealed one photo option touting a kid football player portrait and another featuring a pink retro T.V. alongside a small red box logo. Lastly, Supreme has quietly released a new accessory — a branded square illusion coin bank with a box logo magically floating in the middle. Nostalgia from the late 20th century, the toy is a box for collecting coins that seemingly disappear as you insert them.
