Our Legacy WORK SHOP x Stüssy are back for another round
Our Legacy WORK SHOP and Stüssy go together like fine wine, and thankfully they’re back together again. Celebrating a seventh collaborative venture, the latest collection is inspired by the heritage of both brands. Branded T-shirts, reversible shearling outerwear, overdyed cargo pants and Scottish wool feature alongside double-breasted suits and leather accessories. Campaign images showcase the clothing worn on the beach, nodding to Stüssy Californian DNA, with Our Legacy’s material-focused design signature seen in detailed shots.

Onitsuka Tiger and ASTRO BOY celebrate a special anniversary
Onitsuka Tiger is celebrating its 75th birthday, a landmark for the sports-inspired footwear and apparel brand, and to mark the occasion, it’s launching a new collaboration with ASTRO BOY. The collaborative effort is all about Japan, a common ground for the two considering ASTRO BOY was the first full-length anime TV series in the country, and Onitsuka Tiger released the first athletic shoes made in Japan. Giving the Big Red Boot a run for its money, the collab comes in the form of a 43-piece collection, including apparel and footwear. The Onitsuka Tiger x ASTRO BOY collection is now available exclusively at the London Regent Street Flagship store.
Round 2 of Ksubi x Juice WRLD is here
After a first collaboration late last year, Ksubi and Juice WRLD’s brand, 999 Club, are linking up together again for a 2.0 collection. The collaboration features 17 pieces, ranging from denim to outerwear, and without forgetting graphic tees and accessories, all inspired by Juice WRLD’s music. The collab is also accompanied by a video campaign shot by Steve Cannon, featuring never-seen-before footage of the late rapper, as well as having his fellow rapper friends such as Polo G and Ski Mask the Slump God star in the campaign. The full Kusbi x Juice WRLD 2.0 collection is now available online and in select retail stores.

The German sportswear giant adidas Originals is throwing it back to the early 00s, reintroducing the 2000 Running collection.

Aries taps Reebok for the first time
New year, new collaborations. For the London-based streetwear brand Aries, it’s a first of collaborations with Reebok. Together, the two have turned to the mystique of wizards for inspiration. Aesthetically-speaking, the collaborative shoe takes from the 80s and 90s, with an emphasis on Reebok’s signature Classic Leather seen on the white and peach-coloured shoe. The Aries x Reebok sneaker is now available online as well as at Aries’ London flagship store.
Moose Knuckles x PLEASURES merges streetwear and outerwear
The luxury outerwear specialists Moose Knuckles and the Los Angeles-based clothing brand PLEASURES have collaborated for a cultural exchange between Canada and LA.

Fortnum & Mason unveils a new window ahead of Valentine’s Day
The upmarket London department store Fortnum & Mason is feeling the love ahead of Valentine’s Day, having released its “Unleash the Love” collection. To celebrate, Fortnum & Mason has tapped six artists to reimagine its Piccadilly windows, working with the art collective Gone Rogue. The chosen artists, ALO, Olly Howe, Luap, Ben Allen, Opake and David Speed, took the opportunity to interpret what love means to them, to create the bespoke window art. Speaking on this project, Fortnum & Mason’s Head of Visual Presentation Sallie Smith stated “The thought behind the campaign is that love is much bigger than Valentines, and can take on many forms, so I am thrilled to have 6 incredible, and completely different pieces displayed in our windows.”
