SAINTWOODS x Bone Soda Capsule Collection
Coming together on a dual appreciation for ’70s culture, Montreal-based imprint SAINTWOODS has teamed up with creative studio and record label Bone Soda on a psychedelic rock-inspired capsule collection.
Comprised of a hoodie and T-shirts, the collaborative items are marked by bold graphic prints that repurpose elements of surf merchandise, camper vans and band T-shirts of years gone by. A standout is the “BEWARE OF SNAKES” hoodie which features co-branding a textured psychedelic graphic emblazoned on the rear. Another highlight is the off white “Tour” T-shirt that boasts a print of an anthropomorphic mushroom holding up a peace sign in a camper van.
RANDT Fall/Winter 2019 Collection
Leading the collection are a set of beige and navy corduroy suits defined by slouchy three-pocket blazers paired with matching pants, executed in a cropped cut for exaggerated proportions. Elsewhere, the olive M43 Liner Jacket is marked by a muted nylon shell noted for its durability. Other notable items includes an elongated shirt printed with imagery from Georges Seurat’s Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte with a band collar and casual essentials like long-sleeves and hoodies.
Off-White™ Futura Carpenter/Chino Pants & Theophilus London Boots
Virgil Abloh‘s Off-White™ serves up another round of collaborative goods with Futura and Theophilus London. Both of the c/o Futura Carpenters Pants and Chino Pants are marked with paint splatter and graphics associated with the artist, underlining the joint effort. The five-pocket style bottoms also come marked with arrow branding and feature a relaxed fit for effortless comfort.
The Off-White™ c/o Theophilus London “LIFE’S WORK” Boots are inspired by the artist’s personal style and marked the “Bebey” illustration tied to his upcoming album. Constructed of premium black leather, the contemporary cowboy boot features “LIFE’s WORK” on the side, a double buckle at the ankle marked by heart star-shaped studs and silver-toned chains with €2 EUR pendant coins. Finishing up the design of the footwear option is Off-White™ logos and Theophilus London signature carved into the heel.
Gimme Five Disco T-Shirt Collection
Comprised of short-sleeve and long-sleeve T-shirts, the offerings are marked by graphics associated with the Bee Gees’ hit 1977 singles “Stayin’ Alive” and “Night Fever.” Elsewhere, a production-inspired T-shirt sports co-branding from both the Bee Gees and Gimme Five on both the front and back. Rounding up the range are two T-shirts sport a dancefloor-influenced graphic that reworks the Gimme Five moniker, while another introduces the Jim Henson creations Bert, Ernie and the Cookie Monster in Sesame Street Fever.

BAPE x Levi’s Fall/Winter 2019
For the team-up, the iconic jacket has been reimagined with a zipper running down the entirety of the back, allowing the two colorways found in the capsule to be mixed and matched. The limited-edition Dubai-exclusive iteration is crafted from 12-ounce indigo denim and features screen-printed Levi’s insignias and “stitching” that recreates BAPE’s famous camo print, while the 13-oz. black twill jacket is lined with BAPE’s ubiquitous camo print in black, white, red, and green, to represent the United Arab Emirates’ flag. A co-branded T-shirt completes the capsule, boasting adornments that match the jackets.

Supreme Fall 2019 Collection Week 15
The team-up is centered around the duo’s debut album Let’s Get Free, which helped them gain international attention, with lyrical themes that touch on social issues like racism, inequality, police injustice, corporate manipulation and the school-to-prison pipeline. Even today, Let’s Get Free is still regarded as one of the most radical albums in rap history. The selection of streetwear essentials like quilted work jackets, hoodies, sweatpants, T-shirts, five-panel caps and a bandana are marked by artwork from dead prez’s Let’s Get Free and Revolutionary But Gangsta album.
Other notable wearables found in the accompanying Drop 15 range include the Spellout N-3B Parka, Polartec® Half Zip Pullover, Polartec® Pants and Micro Stripe Mock Neck.
