This week’s list of weekly product drops sees a rather dark set of offerings, focusing less on color and logos and more on basic outwear. Hate it or love it, the biggest drop this week goes to Supreme’s collaboration with Nike. Sherpa-fleece makes an appearance on more than one item as seen in Nike’s reversible vest, Supreme’s reversible logo jacket, and on IISE’s BARE SHERPA Liner. Aimé Leon Dore releases a rather small drop, but where they have cut down on the number of items, they’ve made up for it in quality — crewneck sweaters, color-blocked long sleeves, and heavy coats solidify the collection. In the accessories department, Off-White drops its MR PORTER-Exclusive tote bag, while Vancouver’s Maple releases a slew of silver-crafted jewelry.
Key items this week include Supreme’s Virgin Mary Blanket, the Supreme x Nike collection, the Helmut Lang Jeans beige denim jacket, and Aimé Leon Dore’s heavy tweed coat.
Aimé Leon Dore Drop 2
ALD epitomizes what the best of sophisticated streetwear has to offer. Always adept at fusing sportswear with wearable classic basics, designer Teddy Santis didn’t have to do too much revamping for the current season’s drops. Coming up for the latest release are color-blocked fleeces and sweats, tweed coats, plaid trousers and cozy hoodies. The color palette is also a bit of a refresh from some of the usual dark and dreary hues presented by other labels. The newest selection should be on the top of the list of premium streetwear fans.

A large component of this week’s Supreme drop comes from Supreme’s collaboration with Nike, as the collection offers something for everyone.
