Veilance Spring/Summer 2020 Cambre Denim Collection
After being teased back in 2019, Veilance has now finally premiered its debut denim collection. The Cambre selection serves as the Canadian label’s first foray into the sturdy textile, infusing reliable shells with the intricate high-spec construction that Veilance is known for.
The unique range encompasses two distinct silhouettes: a jacket and pants offering in black or a versatile “Lead” grey tone. Each piece is crafted from a functional Japanese cotton/poly blend that provides thermoregulating, drying and moisture-wicking properties while maintaining the fading and softening traits of denim. Veilance has also designed each item to complement the wearer’s ability to move naturally, with 3D ergonomic patterns utilized to create sharp silhouettes. Taped seams also allow for enhanced durability and a lighter weight design
BAPE x Alpha Industries Capsule Collection
Coming together once again, BAPE has teamed up with Alpha Industries on an MA-1 and N3-B capsule collection. Originally revealed at BAPE’s 25th-anniversary “BAPE XXV” exhibition in 2018, the jackets are done in the American clothing brand’s iconic “Replica Gray” and accented by a series of the Japanese brand’s iconic motifs.
Both jackets feature an array of unique details, including various prints and patches adorned alongside the front, sleeves, and back. The MA-1 bomber jacket features BAPE’s Shark iconography on the rear, with various other motifs found on the sleeves and front. The N3-B parka opts for a “No Windage Hold Off” patch on the rear side, with a bold “FUNTHERA MILITIA” printed just beneath.
Fear of God x AARMY Capsule
The hefty hoodie utilizes a black base to highlight the contrasting white prints on the rear and chest that express the fitness center’s recognizable all-caps logo. The layering piece is centered around FOG’s signature slouchy cuts and comes complete with the LA-based brand’s badge on the hood.

N.HOOLYWOOD “REBEL FABRIC BY UNDERCOVER” SS20 Capsule Collection
Inspired by punk styling, the two imprints have crafted a series of items in a stark plaid and playful accents. N.HOOLYWOOD designer Daisuke Obana and UNDERCOVER’s Jun Takahashi came together to craft a tartan plaid-patterned wool reminiscent of items found in Britain’s ’70s punk scene. A coat, fishtail parka, blazer, oversized shirt, slacks and kilted shorts, are all reimagined with three-dimensional pockets and offset seams.
fragment design x OAMC Capsule Collection
Continuing its charitable efforts, Luke Meier and Arnaud Faeh‘s OAMC has now teamed up with fragment design on a seven-piece capsule collection. A percentage of all proceeds will be donated to Charity: Water, a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries.
The fragment design x OAMC is comprised of the signature vintage Peacemaker liner, a vintage U.S. military surplus M-65 field jacket, crewneck and hooded sweatshirts crafted of Italian cotton fleece, long and short-sleeved T-shirts in premium Italian cotton, and a customized surplus Swiss Army bottle. Items found in the capsule are marked boldly with the “PEACEMAKER” stamp with fragment design’s iconic lightning bolt logo in fluorescent and reflective makeovers.

Stand-out items include technical jackets, knitwear pieces and staple logo T-shirts. Graphics in the collection range from an emoji-print to a collaboration with legendary artist Delta, along with references to the work of Vincent Van Gogh plastered on T-shirts and hoodies.
