2020 might have been rough — to say the least — but it was a golden year for collabs. We’ve seen everything from the insanely popular to the wildly unexpected. Perhaps the events of this year have encouraged brands to work together more creatively – or perhaps all that extra spare time meant they had longer to perfect their offerings.

It felt fitting, then, to round-up some of the best collaborations out there that are still available right now, as part of HYPEBEAST’s holiday gift guide. From sneaker partnerships to luxury link-ups, these are some of our favourites at every price point. Happy shopping.

Tommy Hilfiger

Release Price: $128 USD
Where to Buy: Tommy’s Drop Shop
Why You Should Cop: The latest arrival from Tommy Hilfiger’s rolling collaborative project, Tommy’s Drop Shop, this hoodie is a tie-in with the London-based creative studio Zome. Plus you can expect a host of further collabs from the project next year.

Stationeries by Hypebeast x Fragment

Release Price: $57 USD
Where to Buy: HBX
Why You Should Cop: Okay, we’re a little biased on this one. But the second drop of HYPEBEAST’s collaboration with Hiroshi Fujiwara’s fragment design offers a clean, sleek approach to home essentials. And this coffee mug is a case in point. Even if we do say so ourselves.

New Balance x Levi’s

Release Price: $175 USD
Where to Buy: Slam Jam
Why You Should Cop: When it dropped at the end of October, New Balance and Levi’s take on the 327 was a late but strong contender for one of this year’s standout sneaker collabs. Thankfully, there are still some pairs available.

Loewe x Ken Price

Release Price: $330 USD
Where to Buy: Loewe
Why You Should Cop: The colourful, cartoonish, and Californian aesthetic of the artist Ken Price was a smart fit for the luxury house Loewe, when the two came together in November. This graphic-printed tee was a highlight.

Adidas x Wales Bonner

Release Price: $215 USD
Where to Buy: Vitkac
Why You Should Cop: The British designer Grace Wales Bonner is known for her refined, faintly 70s style – one that transposed surprisingly well onto the adidas Samba. The clothing in this collab also deserves an honorable mention.

Rokit x Beavis and Butthead

Release Price: $120 USD
Where to Buy: Rokit
Why You Should Cop: File this one under ‘nostalgia’ — at least for anyone who was around in the 90s to experience the bizarre phenomenon of Beavis and Butthead the first time around.

Converse x Telfar

Release Price: $120 USD
Where to Buy: Converse
Why You Should Cop: It’s been a banner year for Telfar Clemens – his bags have become a bonafide grail item, and he rounded it out with this pretty pleasing link-up with Converse.

Gucci x Disney

Release Price: $890 USD
Where to Buy: Gucci
Why You Should Cop: Though Gucci’s partnership with Disney has been rolling since 2017, this year’s edition was one of their stronger offerings – particularly this graphic tee.

Brain Dead x Magic The Gathering

Release Price: $253 USD
Where to Buy: Brain Dead
Why You Should Cop: This qualifies as one of the year’s least-expected matches: the skate brand Brain Dead coming together with the (proudly) geeky game Magic: The Gathering. Even more weirdly, it worked.

Nike x Stüssy

Release Price: $47 USD
Where to Buy: Slam Jam
Why You Should Cop: Nike and Stüssy’s December collab sold fast, and most of the pieces are now gold dust. But there are still a few gems still to be copped – like these logo-branded slides.
