Going back to its collaborations, Supreme has readied its latest team up with The North Face. Once again, the New York-based brand has put together its latest take on the highly functional and sought after Nuptse silhouettes marked by a wrinkled paper-like print.
Aside from Supreme’s new selection of goods, we have an impressive array of special rollouts and collaborations that make up a selection of must-have street staples.
Some more notable collabs this week include the Futura x Off-White™ Alien T-shirt, Cactus Plant Flea Market and HUMAN MADE ‘s holiday capsule, along with INVINCIBLE‘s take on The North Face’s iconic outerwear. Other playful team-ups come in the form of Baby Milo‘s Dragon Ball Super: Broly capsule and GU‘s Sony PlayStation capsule. Rounding up this week’s product drops is the Denim Tears Drop Three collection and sacai‘s The Big Lebowski capsule collection.
Denim Tears Drop Three Collection
Aside from commenting on the enslavement in the colony, the range also references elements of classic Polo Ralph Lauren designs and heavily utilizes floral embroidery. Leading the range is the Tyson Beckford “Southern Man” trucker cap, accompanied by an array of hoodies, crewneck sweaters and T-shirts. Notable T-shirts include one referencing the Virgin Mary and the other sporting an image of Sinead O’Connor’s 1992 Saturday Night Live appearance where she publically ripped up an image of the Pope.

INVINCIBLE x The North Face 2019 Capsule Collection
All three pieces are tied together by a photograph from 1987 of “Snowbird Everest Expedition,” where Sally McCoy, who happened to be TNF’s Director of Equipment, made plans to become the first American woman to climb the peak, though it never happened due to harsh weather. Every item found in the collaboration is decorated with the image of a snowy base camp rendered in soft retro palettes.
The standout Mountain Jacket is equipped with technical waterproof and heat-retaining materials, silk-taffeta and brushed tricot drop-lining for extra breathability and warmth. Additionally, the jacket features a double-layer exterior shell with windproof support for cold-weather climates.

Cactus Plant Flea Market x HUMAN MADE 2019 Holiday Capsule
The range is led by the “We’re Good! Officer Bag” done in a soft mustard-toned canvas fabric and printed with CPFM’s bold Smiley face motif and HUMAN MADE’s red heart logo, connected by green cherry stems. “We’re Good” is emblazoned under the smiley, while the other side has the Japanese words “いい感じ,” which loosely translates to “good feeling.” Functional detailing comes in the form of rounded patches at each corner of the bag to prevent fraying, while extra reinforced strips run parallel down the middle, silver-toned two-way zippers and tonal handles. Rounding up the capsule is a denim bandana, socks and ceramic cup emblazoned with the same playful graphics.

sacai The Big Lebowski Spring/Summer 2020 Capsule Collection
Comprised of hoodies and T-shirts, the capsule is defined by iconic phrases from the 1998 crime-comedy film and its title logo. Choice lines highlighted in the range include when the pornographer’s hitmen urinate on Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski’s rug following a misunderstanding. Sayings such as “That rug really tied the room together” and “Yeah, well, you know, that’s your opinion, man” all gracing the front of hoodies and T-shirts.
Sony PlayStation x GU Capsule Collection
Comprised of streetwear essentials, the range is centered around the past, present and future of PlayStation. Leading the range is a simple PlayStation Classic logo coach jacket, button icon hoodie and multi-gen crewneck sweater. Aside from similarly themed T-shirts, the duo has prepared tops honoring Sony Computer Entertainment’s Ape Escape, Doko Demo Issyo and Hot Shots Golf. Rounding up the Sony PlayStation x GU capsule is a series of tote bags and cases for the Apple iPhone 7/8 marked with the button icons.
Dragon Ball Super: Broly x Baby Milo Capsule Collection
BAPE has come together with Dragon Ball on another capsule. This time around, the Japanese imprint has introduced its playful Baby Milo character to the heroes and villains of last year’s Dragon Ball Super: Broly animated film. The collection is comprised of hoodies, crewneck sweaters and T-shirts – all featuring the likes of Super Saiyan Red/Blue Goku and Vegeta, the legendary Broly, and Golden Frieza.
Off-White™ c/o Futura Alien T-Shirt Pre-Order
The oversized t-shirt is centered around an FL-001 Alien design applied on the front and the reinterpreted cross print on the rear. Futura has reworked the Alien sculpture as a haphazardly scrawled graphic and the Off-White™ cross motif as a multicolored cubist offering. The rear print also features Futura’s hand-written graphic detailing the collection’s information, with nods to MCA Chicago.
