This is our chance to showcase a weekly curation of this week’s hottest drops from the world of fashion, music, culture, and arts. This week the titans of streetwear were all jockeying for prime positions with many partnering up in the process!
Off-White x Nike Blazer Low Capsule
After being postponed following the passing of Off-White visionary Virgil Abloh, The Swoosh served us some surprising news this week. The Off-White x Nike Blazer Low made its debutant departure for sneaker store shelves today (April 8th) and came come in two colourways, ‘Black/Green’ & ‘White/Red’. A deconstructed design with varied holes throughout lends an artistic glaze to a too-often unembellished silhouette.
Available – April 8th
Palace has finally gifted us our first glimpse at the upcoming CK1 Palace collection ahead of its public release today (April 8th). This was the collab that nobody saw coming and the jury is still out as to whether the contrasting identities of CK & Palace will be able to find harmony across a whole collection. Reworked denim and playful Palace puns – what’s not to love about that?

BAIT x Attack On Titan x Adidas
An Anime inspired Adidas was always on the horizon, but BAIT is exactly the partner needed to drive it home. The new Attack On Titan UltraBoost pays homage to the archetype antagonist of the series, Colossal Titan, as the blood-red mid-upper and ghostly white detailing mirror the exposed flesh appearance of hero Eren Yeager’s feared foe.

A-COLD-WALL* x Converse
Samuel Ross is twisting the traditional tailoring of Converse creps as A-Cold-Wall unveils their latest collaboration with the Cali footwear giant. The Aeon Active CX dropped at midnight April 6th, and as expected, evaporated into both the resell market and the wardrobes of wearers everywhere. The new ‘runner-inspired design’ rocks an a-symmetrical tongue design, and a tasty tandem of perforated rubber soles with a 3D-printed heel piece, to create an abstract alien aesthetic that turns away from any previous Converse release.

Never say that Trapstar lost its way when it comes to giving back to the community. On Thursday at midnight, Trapstar released its latest expansive collection with all proceeds going toward building two new community recording studios in West London. Both studios will be based in the heart of the hometowns that raised the brand’s founders, finding a home at ‘White City W12’ in Shepherds Bush & ‘Rugby Club W10’ in Ladbroke Grove. If you were looking to cop some wavy wares and do a little something for the health of the London music scene then this sought after drop was not one to miss!
