This week’s drops roundup features Supreme, Heron Preston, Ignored Prayers, FTP, Gucci, Gosha Rubchinskiy x Burberry, Vetements, BAPE, and Drake‘s tour jacket commemorating his fifth studio album, Scorpion.
With a busy first half of the year, Supreme has continued to push an assortment of provocative collaborations, along with its staple mainline collection. This week is no exception as the drop sees bold graphics from the AK Football top, and absurd 7’10” Advanced Elements Packlite inflatable Kayak (complete with oar), and a Supreme x O’brien life vest. Elsewhere, Heron Preston‘s eponymous label releases its SSENSE exclusive NASA-themed capsule. BAPE goes back to its colorful ways for Fall/Winter 2018, combining vintage sporting silhouettes with relaxed cuts — seen in the track pants, track jacket, stadium jacket and long coach jacket.
Supreme Spring/Summer 2018 Drop 20
We’re now at drop 20 of Supreme‘s Spring/Summer 2018 releases and so far, this week looks to be relatively quiet. Since there are no special collaborations, the most noteworthy pieces are the box logo accessories — a Supreme x Advanced Elements Packlite Kayak (an inflatable one-person kayak with a pump and oar) and a Supreme/O’Brien Life Vest. The water activities theme will extend to a few unseen items releasing this week, which will include an embossed beach towel, taping water shorts, mesh strip tank tops, tracksuits, crusher hats and more. It appears that this will be the last Supreme SS18 drop. We’ll update this post as more info rolls through, so keep checking back.
