Welcome to Cool Pants. Here are 3 things that happened in streetwear this week:
1. SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA’S AF1’S
Swedish House Mafia, a group I’ve never heard of (I’m sorry) has collabed with Nike for a new Air Force 1 drop. Because three check marks are better than one. I’ll be honest I wrote about these people simply because I like these sneakers. Check the link HERE for more info.
2. BROCKHAMPTON MERCH
Everyone’s favourite boy band (my apoligies to NSYNC) BROCKHAMPTON is back. The hip-hop collective has revealed their new series of merch this week. Bright colours, blue/orange/yellow themed tees and hoodies for your wearing pleasure. If you’re looking to cop, everything drops tomorrow (April 2nd). Link HERE.
3. LOUIS VUITTON x VIRGIL ABLOH
That's it for the week. See you in 7 days.
So I guess the biggest news this week in streetwear...fashion was Virgil Abloh of the brand OFF-WHITE signing on to be the creative director at LOUIS VUITTON. This seems like a big moment in fashion. A big-time, fancy-ass, fashion house bringing in a streetwear designer. Not to over simplify his accomplishments to just that, but this streetwear movement is becoming the crux of fashion it seems. Check the video below for a short clip of Virgil explaining the move.
