Supreme’s offering is led by a collaboration with French brand Lacoste, touching on its Tennis roots with items like Pique Long Sleeve Polos with matching Pants and 6-Panel Hats, along with Puffy Half-zip Pullovers with matching Track Pants. Tonal accessories also make a strong showing in the form of Messenger Bags and Beanies. But the Wool Bomber Jackets which features a large Green Crocodile motif at the rear, colorful referee-inspired Stripe Cardigans and Hooded Sweatshirts with matching Sweatshorts that boast “Lacoste” and “Supreme” co-branding really are the standouts of the collaboration.
Aside from Supreme’s FW19 Week 5 Drop, this week we have an impressive array of special releases and collaborations that make up a selection of must-have street staples.
Standout collaborations this week include Pop Trading Company‘s Popeye capsule, Billionaire Boys Club‘s latest team-up with artist Michael Kagan and END. and Off-White™‘s “CHEMICAL WASH.” These are along with Anti Social Social Club and DHL‘s unexpected link up and Patta‘s upcoming collaboration filled pop-up in New York. Rounding up this week’s drops is the debut collection from William Walsh’s fledgling Aitchinson label and the third release of S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA. from Sterling Ruby.
Aitchinson “Broken Easel” Collection
Collaborating with British landscape artist Deborah Royston, paintings appear throughout the range in the form of digital prints on the matching cotton drill utility pants and jacket set alongside a nylon ripstop tactical vest. Utilizing classic streetwear silhouettes, the collection is the expression of the brand’s idea that a broken easel “reflects a sense of beauty amongst imperfection.”
S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA. Third Collection
Continuing the release of his first-ever fashion line, artist Sterling Ruby recently partnered with The Broken Arm in Paris for the third delivery of S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA. with an evocative installation.
Building on the themes expressed with earlier drops, the latest release is dominated by shirts, knits and ponchos with patchwork and brightly colored dyes. Accompanying the garments are cast-metal tools and accessories, such as axes, skeins of yarn and knitting needles available in limited editions. Each UNIQUE garment available for in-store purchase is hand-treated, cut and signed by the artist. Assigned an inventory number — such as UNIQUE (4306) and UNIQUE (5262) — each piece becomes a part of an artistic series.
DHL x Anti Social Social Club Capsule
Referencing its controversial shipping history, Anti Social Social Club has teamed up with DHL on a noteworthy capsule centered around the international courier, parcel, and express mail expert’s iconic branding.
The special range is comprised of two hoodies, two T-shirts, an embroidered cap and square cushion, marked with DHL’s familiar logo and mix of yellow and red. The sleeve portions of the apparel is also emblazoned with the phrase “50 Years – Excellence. Simply Delivered” and ASSC’s branding motif is applied in contrasting tones. The square cushion comes complete with co-branding and technical specs in reference to DHL’s cardboard shipping boxes.

POP Trading Company x Popeye Capsule
Pop Trading Company has revealed its latest collaboration with iconic American cartoon Popeye. Celebrating the series’ iconic sailor, the capsule range features six pieces in total, including a hoodie, sweatshirt, cashmere jumper, striped long-sleeve T-shirt and 6-panel. Additionally, the brand also made two exclusive pieces for Japan’s H Beauty & Youth — a crewneck sweater and a stadium jacket.
Peter Kolks recently spoke to HYPEBEAST about how this collaboration came about:
For our SS18 collection, we did an unofficial Popeye shirt, not really thinking much of it – most skate brands take inspiration for pop culture figures and spoof or just plain copy a graphic. We had a friend design our logo and in the centre of the ‘O’ we had Olive (Popeye’s girlfriend) peak out. Back then we only really sold to a few stores and figured we’d be under the radar. When Paris Fashion Week came along we got the asked if we wanted to work with Beauty&Youth H for the season and if they could have the Olive tee graphic on a grey heather crewneck we were like “sure, alright let’s go!” Not knowing the size of the business and the reach B&Y has in Japan, we found out later on they had sold out in two days, with coverage in the likes of GQ Japan. So it was pretty popular!
King Features JP, who are the licensing agent for Popeye, found out about the product and of course contacted Beauty&Youth H asking in they had the contract because they couldn’t find it in their archives, so they got in contact with us asking if we had a contract… which we didn’t have. King Features JP then connected us and they were really chill about the situation, we had just figured we’d wing it and nobody would find out as we were a small brand. We got directed to King Features USA to sort out paperwork, we were lucky in the sense that the as the product was sold out they could cease& desist us, plus it had pretty good press. We did have to pay commission but their minimums left us with some space to spend with the King Features company by the end of 2019; so technically we were forced to come up with another Popeye collection, this time officially though.
The Pop Trading Company x Popeye collab releases on September 28, available at select retailers at and Pop Trading Company’s web store.
