This week’s list of product drops sees a plethora of graphic T-shirt releases. Starting off, we see the SSENSE-exclusive launch of art prints and a “Work Surface” T-shirt, all to commemorate Virgil Abloh‘s “CUTTING ROOM FLOOR” pop-up that took place at the retailer’s Montreal flagship. Elsewhere, Verdy and John Ross come together for a small NUBIAN-exclusive capsule of tees, sweats, and accessories — mixing both SEVENTH HEAVEN and Wasted Youth‘s signature aesthetics.

Key items for this week include the Denim Tears/BF-print Patagonia shorts, the PLEASURES Gum Ball Side Bag, Rokit’s Civilian pants, and finally, the SEVENTH HEAVEN Dickies work shirt.

Virgil Abloh x SSENSE “CUTTING ROOM FLOOR” Collection

Following their co-exhibition entitled “CUTTING ROOM FLOOR,” Virgil Abloh and SSENSE recently dropped items from the unique experience that replicated the Chicago creative’s personal studio at the retailer’s Montreal space. For those who weren’t able to attend the spotlight on Virgil’s inspirations, select exclusive pieces are now available for purchase. Leading the garment side of things are the DIY style Punk Patch sweatshirts and commemorative “Work Surface” T-shirts. While a documentary Wolf Gang Tillmans book and limited edition prints that shed light on the Louis Vuitton artistic director’s work process round up the special set of offerings.
