The extensive collection enlists over 20 different brands, each producing T-shirts for the international powerhouse as well as hoodies, sweatshirts, long-sleeves, sweatpants and, with brands like NOAH, collaborative water bottles. Some of the signature pieces from the collection include a BAPE T-shirt, which combines its familiar APE head emblem with rat ears and a tail in a new graffiti style; the offerings from CLOT, which include a traditionally-inspired silk chore jacket that’s inscribed with DSM and artistic motifs; and the Denim Tears T-shirts, which sport retro black-and-white images taken from The Godfather.
Other collaborators include AWAKE NY, Doublet, Cactus Plant Flea Market, IDEA, Stüssy, Youths in Balaclava, Expert Horror, Dreamland Syndicate and many more. As per most DSM collaborations, Nike has offered up its talents in the form of a selection of T-shirts that combine its Swoosh logo with various rat motifs, such as a cartoon rat wearing a pair of Nike Vaporflys and a basketball crew of rats.
