8 Drops You Don't Want to Miss This Week
Supreme/Tivoli speakers to Nike ACG SS18 collection.
Supreme takes it easy for week 15 by skipping out on the usual weekly collab with only mainline Spring/Summer 2018 collection pieces. But that doesn’t mean demand will dip. The biggest highlight is undoubtedly the Supreme/Tivoli Pal BT speaker, which is not only emblazoned with the famous red Box Logo branding, but offers superior wireless bluetooth radio and sound quality, making it one of the most useful accessories from this season. Other notable pieces include the Landscape hoodie and sweatshorts, the Playboy soccer jersey and a never-before-seen MLK T-shirt.
The rest of this week’s releases is a slew of streetwear staples. There’s a parade of new graphic T-shirts and hoodies courtesy of Palace, Parra, Hebru Brantley x BAPE, PLEASURES and Amnesty International x Everypress 50/50 collection, which collaborates with the likes of Liam Hodges, Octavian, Deter Navy and more. For those looking for sportswear gear, we have old classics from the retro Nike ACG SS18 collection and new designs from Skepta‘s upcoming Mains collection.
Supreme Spring/Summer 2018 Drop 15
No special collab drops from Supreme this week; only mainline SS18 collection pieces. But there’s still a handful of gems up for grabs. First and foremost is the Supreme box logo Tivoli Pal BT speakers, which is one of the most useful Bogo accessories this season, offering portable bluetooth radio and great sound quality. Then we have clothing highlights such as the watercolor print Landscape hoodie and sweatshorts, the split anorak (offered in pink, blue/green, beige, black), and the Playboy soccer jersey. For big statement pieces, there’s the Martin Luther King zip-up flannel shirt and the “People = Shit” shorts, and for something more under-the-radar, there’s a never-before-seen MLK “Don’t Let the Dream Die” T-shirt that will be releasing.
