Rassvet SS18 Collection

After ending his brand “as you’ve known it,” Gosha Rubchinskiy recently unveiled his latest fashion venture, Rassvet. As the evolution of the Russian fashion designer’s PACCBET diffusion line (launched in 2016), Rassvet will function as a stand-alone label accompanied by a multi-brand skate store in Moscow, called OKTYABR. The inaugural set of releases from the new project is comprised of a crewneck sweater, long- and short-sleeve T-shirts, socks and more all emblazoned with an array of Cyrillic phrases and uniquely Russian prints.

When: July 28
Where: In-store at OKTYABR, DSM, and COMME DES GARÇONS stores.

Shonen Jump x Uniqlo UT Final Collaboration

Rounding up its collaboration series, Uniqlo UT and Shonen Jump came together once again for a final T-shirt set. Designed around the theme of “Beginning and End,” the last round of graphic offerings reference the early late points in the Dragon Ball, Naruto and One Piece mangas. Choice designs include the ending from the final volume of the original Dragon Ball series, an early splash page showcasing child Goku on his Nimbus cloud and adult Goku’s “Bye-bye, everyone,” uttered before he teleported himself and Cell far away from Earth. The selection of Naruto T-shirts highlight the first and last pages of the original manga, as well as the matured looks of the eponymous hero and Sasuke in the Shippuden follow up. While the One Piece range pulls from an array of moments, including Luffy declaring his goal to be King of the Pirates, a tearful “Thank you” from Shanks, Gol D. Roger’s warning about his pirate treasure and the splash page from the series’s “New Age” time skip.

No stranger to collaborations, UNDERCOVER tapped rainwear brand KiU for a capsule of head-turning rain ponchos and umbrellas. The range is characterized by UNDERCOVER’s signature Goyard-inspired “F*CK” pattern, raised middle fingers array and a collage style “PUNK FLOYD”/“BRAIN CASTLE print expressed in black, green and navy leanings. The three packable raincoats, accompanied by a quartet of umbrellas with matching sleeves are perfect for the rainy days come fall.
