The Coolest Fashion Collabs Happening Now
A$AP ROCKY X GUESS
When he’s not destroying rhymes, A$AP Rocky is enjoying his reign as the new king of fashion in hip hop. With a constant presence at Fashion Week’s front rows, it was only a matter of time before Pretty Flacko made it official. By teaming with longtime iconic brand Guess, A$AP brought a dose of street cred to a capsule collection that, like many white-hot collabs happening now, channels the washed out denim and grunge vibes of the early 90’s. Our favorite piece? The re-working of the essential guess t-shirt with a A$AP spin.
FILA X URBAN OUTFITTERS
FILA reached its peak in the 90s and early-2000s, but the sportswear brand is back to catch the eyes of today’s shoppers. In a capsule collection created in conjunction with Urban Outfitters, FILA experimented with revamped 90s silhouettes infused with today’s popular athleisure (athletic + leisure) apparel. In a collection full of men’s and womenswear pieces, the FILA x Urban Outfitter lineup consists of tees, sweatshirts and track jackets covered with the iconic FILA logo. There’s also a selection of high-top and low-cut sneakers in colorful suede that are the perfect footwear options for those casual days.
GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI X G-DRAGON
High-end Italian footwear gawd Giuseppe Zanotti is no stranger to a celebrity collaboration. His latest limited-edition collection includes an array of edgy dress shoes and loafers designed by Korean pop-star, G-Dragon of the group Big Bang. The four-piece collection includes glittery shoes that represent the merger between Western and Eastern style influences, and Giuseppe fans will definitely appreciate the punk-meets-glam theme.
CONVERSE X COMME DES GARCONS
You probably know streetwise high-fashion label Comme Des Garçons by their avant-garde apparel and heavy streetstyle presence, but the Japanese brand streamlined their aesthetic when it linked up with Converse for a shoe collection. Designed by creative director, Rei Kawakubo, the "Converse Chuck Taylor All Star '70 Play Commes des Garçons Collection" (whew, that’s a long name) includes four styles of low- and high-top shoes. The iconic shoe received the Comme des Garçons treatment with the brand’s logo, the all-seeing heart, printed on the uppers of the shoes.
UNIQLO X LEMAIRE
After Christophe Lemaire’s departure from renowned fashion house Hermés, many of his aficionados wondered what the designer had in store next. In between designing for his eponymous label, the French designer also teamed up with design-oriented Japanese retailer-of-the-people UNIQLO to created a limited-edition collection of basic essentials. The lineup consists of lightweight, versatile pieces that can be layered in the winter, or worn separately in the summer. Straight lines, a relaxed fit, and functional details make up this collection that is geared toward minimalist who favor understated pieces.
