VOL 18: GUCCI SWEATBANDS, DRAGON BALL Z & COMME DES GARCONS

Welcome to Cool Pants. Here are 3 things that happened in streetwear this week:

1. $270 GUCCI SWEATBANDS

This week GUCCI dropped a $270 sweatband. Why you may ask. Well probably for the same reason that Supreme released a brick last year (yes...a real brick). Brands dropping outlandish things to get press has been common place these days, especially in fashion. On one hand, it’s a clear lure for media, but at least it’s a little more creative right? I don’t know. I guess if you’re in the market for a new sweatband and have cash to blow check this one out HERE.

2. DRAGON BALL Z x REMIX COLLAB

When I grew up, Dragon Ball Z was the shit so I’m covering this news whether you like it or not. Taiwanese streetwear brand REMIX just teased a collaborations with the legendary 90’s cartoon Dragon Ball Z. Comprised of crewnecks, long-sleeves, and tees, this drop is small, but mighty. It seems like the creators of Dragon Ball Z have realized the nostalgic appeal of the show. Last year they did a collab with BAPE, now this. I’m assuming we can expect more Goku inspired digs very soon. Check the whole collection at the link here.

3. COMME DES GARCON x NIKE

Fashion heavy-hitter COMME DES GARCONS is back with a new sportswear collab with NIKE. We only have a tease thus far, but the potential for this partnership is pretty huge. The new drop will include a sleek bomber, light jacket (in all black) and some mesh shirts with big format graphics. See for yourself at the link here.

That's it for the week. See you in 7 days.
