Welcome to Cool Pants. Here are 3 things that happened in streetwear this week:
1. LIL MIQUELA, x HIGH SNOBIETY
Animated influence. Taking the notion of online influencer to the next level, Lil Miquela is a computer-generated social media mogul who has amassed a casual 1.2 million instagram followers. This attention has garnered a slew of fashion collabs with the latest being with fashion media giant High Snobiety & up-scale retailer Barneys. The tee pictured above is the latest drop for the pixelated style icon and was released in small order on June 13th. If you want some style tips and a taste of the life of an animated superstar...the fuk..follow @lilmiquela on the gram.
2. LOUIS VUITTON SS19
The main "SHOW". Paris Fashion Week is one of the premier fashion shows in the world. On Thursday’s night, we get to see what Louis Vuitton has in store for their SS19 collection. With long-time creative director Kim Jones exiting, this will be the first showing for the newly appointed Virgil Abloh. The image below was released on Louis Vuitton’s instagram this week, teasing one of the many items to be shown at the end of the week. If you are looking to catch the show live, tune in on the Louis Vuitton website at 10:30AM ADT on Thursday.
3. NIKE x SUPREME
That's it for the week. See you in 7 days.
FIRE. Amidst many streetwear drops this week, Nike re-introduced us to the Zoom Streak Spectrum Plus. Not exactly a name that rolls off the tongue, but I guess that’s apropos for a sneaker that has a lot going on. Designed back in 2002, Steven Smith originally created this silhouette to be for a Japanese running market. The flames on the OG release was a reference to the American Hot Rod...fitting for a racing shoe I guess. The new kick features splashes of Supreme hype and a limited release as per usual. What do you think though, HYPE or TRAAASH?
