Accessories include minimal shoulder bags, baseball hats with beak visor and bucket hats in neutral colors so they can be worn with any other garment in the line. The entire collection is therefore designed to be comfortable for the wearer but at the same time functional.
THE NORTH FACE PURPLE LABEL‘s Spring/Summer 2020 collection will be released in The North Face Prototype store in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, early next year (2020) and will be available for purchase on the brand’s website and in selected stores. For Asian residents, the range will also be available from the Japanese retailers of THE NORTH FACE PURPLE LABEL.
Finally, the brand new Kith x Nike Air Force 1, born from the collaboration between the famous designer Ronnie Fieg and the Swoosh brand, has been presented.
The new model is entirely made of white leather with details that cannot go unnoticed: first of all, there are two Swoosh, a smaller and more colorful one placed on the forefoot and the classic side one on which, however, has been engraved with the KITH logo.
The latter is also on the red tab. To give an extra touch to the look of the shoe there are the plate and the tips of the gold laces, which create a striking and elegant contrast with the blue lining of the sneaker.
However, despite a large number of fans and enthusiasts waiting for the release of the Kith x Nike Air Force 1, the shoe was made in a 100-piece print run, intended only for Ronnie Fieg’s closest friends. Perhaps, after all the interest born around this release, the American designer and Nike will decide to continue this collaboration. While waiting, discover the shoe below!
For all the nerds passionate about video games or the eternal nostalgics of past years, a new line of clothing is coming to the iconic video game Pac-Man. The idea was born from the US streetwear brand BAIT that, after several successful collaborations, has decided to celebrate 40 years of the video game by creating Pac-Man x BAIT, a capsule collection with Bandai Namco,a leading company in providing quality entertainment to consumers.
The collection itself will feature a series of black and white hoodies, t-shirts and long-sleeved shirts with vibrant 8-bit graphics inspired by the legendary game of the 80s and 90s. In addition to the yellow character, ghosts and ignition elements such as cherries, the capsule collection will be enhanced by a reinterpretation of BAIT’s “Glitch” game and the “BAIT” logos written with the character of the original “Pac-Man” logo.
For big fans, the Pac-Man x BAIT “Glitch” collaboration will be available in official BAIT stores throughout the United States and also at BAIT Japan. All this will be purchased starting tomorrow, Friday, January 3, 2020. Obviously, to enrich the experience of those who will buy the products directly in the stores, it will be possible to play with the iconic Pac-Man machines where you can play a few games for free and maybe set a new record!
UPDATE 8 JANUARY: Travis Scott showed, through Instagram, the new Travis Scott x Nike SB Dunk Low shoes. After some rumors, the singer confirmed the collaboration.
For a few days now, there have been rumors about a new collaboration between the famous clothing and shoes brand Nike and the American rapperTrevis Scott. This has been deduced from the singer’s latest music video in which there is a hint of yet another reinterpretation of the iconic Swoosh but, this time, in co-branding. This wouldn’t even be the first time that the two giants, one from music and the other from the world of clothing, decided to come together to create something innovative. For example, a few months ago, again from their joint work, Air Jordan VI revisited and launched a special edition as part of a larger collection (always launched by Air Jordan): “Cactus Jack“.
From this alleged collaboration would arise the Travis Scott x Nike SB Dunk Low sneaker. The sneaker in question was spotted at the feet of the rapper in a short film that accompanied his latest project JACKBOYS.
The new Travis Scott x Nike SB Dunk Low features a mix of grey tones on the upper with plaid hits on the side panels. Nothing is yet concrete and the shoes could very well be a future colorway that was not designed by Scott. However, it remains a widespread opinion that the Houston rapper will announce a new collaboration with Nike for 2020.
