This week’s list of product drops sees the shift from summer essentials to warmer clothing and outerwear — transitioning us fully into the fall season. In place of graphic tees, we now see long-sleeves, hoodies, and an overt push for vests. After the success of Bait‘s collaboration with Marvel Studios, the two are back together for another round, but now highlighting some of the villains of the Marvel Universe, as seen with the portrayal of Venom, Carnage, and Thanos. Gosha Rubchinskiy and adidas maintain a safe schedule of releases with its uniform-like collection that primarily uses the colors yellow, green, blue mixed in with shades of black and gray.
