With another week here, we now have a new list of notable product drops to look out for. This week’s rollouts feature seven releases comprised of collaborations, seasonal collections and exclusive offerings. Leading the set is Matthew M. Williams‘ second performance-driven collaboration with Nike.

Other partnerships include a Medicom Toy BE@RBRICK from Drake‘s OVO and a Mechanical Diver’s Watch from BAPE and Seiko. Special releases come in the form of a Utility Drop from French-label N.D.G Studio and a set of Apple iPhone cases Takashi Murakami released at Tonari no ZingaroKaikai Kiki‘s official souvenir shop. Rounding things up are the Spring/Summer 2019 collections from Stüssy and Wacko Maria.

Key items this week include the craftsman made BAPE x Seiko Mechanical Diver’s Watch, Kaikai Kiki iPhone cases and the unique camo printed offerings from Matthew M. Williams’ latest Nike collaboration.

N.D.G Studio Utility Drop

N.D.G Studio‘s latest Utility Drop explores the heritage associated with work uniforms mixed with utility wear.

The range is comprised of monochromatic black looks contrasted by 3M reflective pieces constructed of nylon, canvas and mesh. Some standout items include the tactical pocket riddled ESCAPE UTILITY VEST, waterproof JOGGING TROUSERS and uniquely adjustable CROSS BODY BAG.

Takashi Murakami KaiKai Kiki iPhone Cases

Adding to the offerings at Tonari no ZingaroKaikai Kiki‘s official souvenir shop, Takashi Murakami recently released a new set of Apple iPhone cases.

The hardshell cases are decorated with collages made up of the famed Japanese artist’s signature flower characters in a choice of blue hues, red hues or multicolor. While the outlandish silicone case features a large multicolor smiling flower caricature placed at the top of the case. Additionally, the soft yet protective case features built-in loops for a long chain attachment for an alternative carry option.

Matthew M. Williams x Nike Second Collection

Continuing their collaborative relationship, Nike and Matthew M. Williams teamed up once again for a new range of performance-driven offerings.

The latest collection of “future training uniforms” once again mixes data influences with the aesthetic Williams has established with 1017 ALYX 9SM. The camo print used compounds “imperfections” against accurate computer results to create a pattern that hides the human form. Insulated jackets, practical vests, functional pants, convertible headwear, gloves and socks, found in the collection is constructed to meet the requirements of tough, outdoors training.
