Now in recent times we find more designers following suite, Riccardo Tisci with Nike Air Force Ones, DKNY with Pony, Sacai with Nike, Mo Wax with Nike, Mary Katranzou with Adidas , Craig Green with Champion ( WOOD WOOD) ….And my take on all of these collaborations……GIMME GIMME GIMMEEE….!!!!!! It is an excuse to be Sporty, comfy, edgy and chic all in one ….WHY NOT!!!!!
Most of these CAPSULE COLLECTIONS OR COLLABORATIONS are found in select stores or the flagship stores. BARNEYS usually carries these selections ( Mary Katranzou x adidas, nike x riccardo tisci) , Urban outfitters carries the Champion X wood wood and NIKE LAB STORE ( not to be mistaken for the Nike Store) usually carries the exclusive/designer collaborations….* UR WELCOME* :-*
MARY KATRANZOU X ADIDAS!!!!!
ONE WORD- AMAZING!!!!!!!….She stays true to her fun colorful, chic aesthetic, while still implementing sporty graphics and cuts, while still maintaining the femininity of her brand. I can not wait to get my hands on at least 2 or 3 items ( ALL would be ideal, BUT Bills gotta get paid and we still working on that OPRAH money here :-P)
DKNY X PONY ; DKNY relaunched and branded itself as a certified New York Brand, a brand from New York for The typical NewYorker ….and who better to do a sneaker collaboration with than PONY, a veteran in the sneaker game and one coined for your typical New Yorker, why else would their name be PONY ( Product of New York). I am proud to say I was able to get my hands on a pair of these sneakers ( *whoot whoot*), as well as attend the launch party ( Definitely good times had) . This collection just ranges of a pair of unisex mid top white sneakers, but think a red release to follow very very sooooonn……
CHAMPION X CRAIG GREEN (WOOD WOOD) - *SINGSSSS* " Don't call it a comeback"….Funny Enough…Champion has always been one of my favorite sports brand, mostly in clothing,…I always thought their clothing had a cool vintage feel to it, plus they are known for their sports jerseys (both sports team and brand jerseys)
Anywaysss….. they recently teamed up with designer Craig Green, to come up with a very fashion forward but yet cool edgy collection to kind of get themselves back into main stream fashion. I can't lie definitely have a few pieces from this collection, totally obsessed and its so practical and comfy…as far as I was concerned it was a no brainer. The collection is definitely unisex, as well as having pieces that appeal to just the females as well i.e maxi dresses, bralets,/ bra tops, crop tops, biker shorts, swing dresses etc…
The rest of the collection includes, sweatshirts, jackets, shorts w/ skirt panel. neck muffler, tshirt etc
