Welcome to Cool Pants. Here are 3 things that happened in streetwear this week:
1. JT’S HALFTIME JORDAN COMMERCIAL
Did you watch the SuperBowl last night? More importantly, did you catch the halftime show? Well here’s something you may have missed. Justin Timberlake just made a whole lot of money by dancing around in his new Jordan III collab. You see. The pop star used the stage to launch his new kick, which went available for purchase at the end of the show, and sold out in moments. Slick move JT. Check the whole story at the link HERE.
2. PALACE’S FULL SPRING 2018 COLLECTION
From across the pond. European streetwear force, PALACE has released their full lineup of pieces for Spring 2018. This is one of my favourite brands so I’m feeling quite a few items here. Especially this jacket. I committed to a ski trip next month and I’m more interested in flexing with a proper chair-lift fit than skiing ... so I made have to cop. Check the whole lineup HERE.
3. BALENCIAGA’S $850 CROC PLATFORMS
That's it for the week. See you in 7 days.
I know this is ridiculous and you’re wondering why I’m covering this...but these sold out in minutes and I’m simply searching for answers. Balenciaga, a high-end luxury fashion house dropped this $850 platform rendition of Crocs this week at Barneys, another high-end retailer in NY. Fashion parody may have gone too far with these...or not? Who knows. Fuck it. I can’t wait to see people taking shots for the gram with these. Check em out below.
