After working with New Balance on a stunning 2002R collaboration in 2020, Salehe Bembury swiftly became a household name within the realm of streetwear. Since then, he’s tackled more initiatives with the Boston sportswear brand, released his own collaboration with Crocs, dropped a winter-ready capsule with Canada Goose and more. And this month, the popular designer is slated to revisit his partnership with New Balance to launch drop 2 of his YURT apparel assemblage.
Much like the first set of apparel and kicks that were released during Fall 2021, this new batch is also inspired by the great outdoors. Headlining the range are the outerwear pieces which include a Yurt Woven jacket that is built with a cotton woven fabric and features sherpa details on the sleeves, woven tie closures on the front and patch pockets as well as the Yurt Intel jackets that are constructed with ripstop, have removable hoods and a built-in Velcro face masks. Fleece pullovers that have oversized fits and functional storage pockets and Utility Vets are also included in this category.
Elsewhere in the range, you’ll find Yurt Pocket tees and graphic tees, as well as accessories such as a puffy scarf that is emblazoned with Bembury’s signature fingerprint patterns and a bold blue dad cap that’s engineered with all-over felt.
