With another week we have yet another installment of our product drops series, this time marked by a host of standout releases. Leading the list is the release of Supreme‘s sixth Spring/Summer 2020 drop and Palace‘s collaboration with EVISU.
Accompanying the Week 6 drop this week is Supreme’s next team-up of the season with Automobili Lamborghini, centered around bright colors drawn from Lamborghini’s most famous automobiles like the Diablo, Murciélago and Aventador. Aside from being dressed in rich black, blaze orange or neon green tones, each offering found in the seven-piece capsule makes use of the Italian automaker’s iconic bull logo.
Taking a break from its Spring 2020 collection releases, Palace’s latest collaborative range is centered around EVISU’s signature denim offerings marked with a co-branding take on the iconic seagull logo.
Standout collaborations this week include Mark Gonzales and adidas Skateboarding‘s “Shmoofoil” apparel collection and Children of the Discordance‘s exclusive release for Dover Street Market Ginza. Other notables include NemeN‘s bold tie-dye treated SS20 collection and GOOD ART HLYWD‘s War Pins for Coronavirus (COVID-19) support. Rounding up this week’s product drops is Kazuki Kuraishi‘s “Lemon” Collection for The North Face‘s Urban Exploration division and IISE‘s SS20 collection.

NemeN SS20 Collection
Opting for bold colors, NemeN‘s SS20 sees its technical aesthetic reimagined with evocative rich tie-dye treatments.
Despite the new focus, functional garments still boast asymmetric zippers, voluminous hoods and bespoke textiles built off the label’s preferred codes. Gradient dyes further elevate jackets that sport internal backpack slings, while adjustable cargo vests for extra storage space and additional layering capabilities. NemeN branding is found on front-facing straps and shoulder panels cropped above the left sleeve, for practical adornment.
IISE SS20 Collection
Drawing from South Korea’s prominence in the global marketplace, established Seoul-based imprint IISE re-imagined itself as a dominating future corporate entity for Spring/Summer 2020.
The label’s reinterpretation of uniforms through a series of fictional subsidiary companies: IISE Chemical/Pharmaceutical Division, IISE Heavy Industries, and its mother company, IISE CORP. Technical fabrications dominate the collection with functional textiles manipulated to express contemporary takes on traditional silhouettes. Riddled throughout are subtle details like schematic and warning label designs, logos embedded into styling and proud pocketing in unexpected places. Rounding up the SS20 collection are pieces that utilize GORE-TEX toolings to continue the technical theme tied to IISE CORP.
DSM Ginza-Exclusive Children of the Discordance Collection
The collection is comprised of a concho jacket, shirts, pants, and bucket hats that sport a design never used by Children of the Discordance before. All items made from U.S. and European bandanas from the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s, utilized in a patchwork manner on signature pieces such as the multicolored and multi-patterned shirt.
Children of the Discordance’s concho jacket appears in both red and blue iterations and is cut to drape from the shoulders, adding volume and billowing element. The bucket hats complete with clean stitching and metal side eyelets, while trousers sport a relaxed cut. Alongside the bandana pieces is a selection of hand graffiti-painted deadstock military garments, and an array of reconstructed vintage T-shirts from Stüssy, which now appear as patchwork hoodies and restitched T-shirts.
