This week we also see a philanthropic merch release from Kerwin Frost and Cactus Plant Flea Market for The First Annual Kerwin Frost Telethon Supershow. It is important to note that 100 percent of all proceeds from the special range will benefit Colin Kaepernick‘s Know Your Rights Camp.
Other notable collaborations include IISE‘s New Era release celebrating Korea’s Joseon dynasty and COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT‘s FW20 capsule with Futura. Other standouts include HBX exclusives in the form of FLOWER ANARCHY SMILE Necklace from Salute and Shane Gonzales of MIDNIGHT STUDIOS and a raffled for the Billionaire Boys Club x SECRET BASE limited edition Astro Boy figure. Rounding up this week’s drops is C2H4‘s Case #R002 “Filtered Reality” FW20 collection and BAPE‘s ABC NEON CAMO Face Mask & Case.
Billionaire Boys Club x SECRET BASE Astro Boy Vinyl Figure
Maintaining Astro’s signature torso design, the vinyl figure’s arms, legs and head are crafted in clear vinyl to reveal the android’s inner workings. The clear parts show off a highly detailed mechanical structure and add another display element to the collectible. SECRET BASE and HIDDY have also prepared three necklace accessories that serve as mini replicas of NIGO and Pharrell‘s iconic chains.

IISE x New Era Gat Bucket Hat & 6-Panel Cap
Inspired by the headwear worn by the Yangban ruling class of Korea’s Joseon dynasty, the four-piece collaborative range features bucket hats and 6-panel caps in white and more fitting black.

Rounding up the design of the contemporary take on the traditional ware are IISE and New Era’s logo expressed through tonal embroidery.

Finally, the necklace comes complete with a secure lobster clasp closure.
