In this week’s Friday Roundup, we’ve got a ton of collabs, including a Palace x Vans and a Ksubi x A$AP TyY one. In other news, Bakar has just released a new single and Rimowa is bringing out its summer collection inspired by the cold weather.
THE PALACE X VANS COLLAB IS GIVING US 90S OFFICE VIBES

Launching today online, the drop of the shoe is accompanied by skateboarding tees, also available online and in-store.
BAKAR JUST DROPPED A NEW SINGLE
The British artist Bakar has just blessed us by releasing a brand new track titled “Alive!”. Merging his charmful voice with some post-punk basslines, the single feels very London. The accompanying music video, which was directed by rubberband, follows the artist in Piccadilly Circus, bringing rush-hour traffic to a standstill.
