Keeping the collaborations coming, Supreme is back with the estate of late New York artist Martin Wong and RIMOWA. The second installment of the New York-base skate brand’s fledgling relationship with the LVMH owned luggage purveyor dresses the Check-In L and Cabin Plus models with a familiar spiderweb pattern. The Martin Wong collaboration pays homage to the artist’s documentation of the urban environment and brick facades of the Lower East Side.
Aside from Supreme’s FW19 Week 12 Drop, this week we have Palace‘s diverse Winter 2019 Week 7 release, an impressive array of special rollouts and collaborations that make up a selection of must-have street staples.
Some notable collabs this week include an unexpected team-up between BAPE and Pagani, along with an homage to western heritage from Timberland and Lee. Moncler is also launching the Moncler House of Genius–temporary concept stores Milan, Paris and Tokyo open until the end of January 2020. Lacoste playfully reimagined its signature logo with its “Croco Magic” capsule and both Fucking Awesome and ROKIT are back with the latest drops of their Holiday 2019 collections.
