Mark Your Calendar For These Designer Release Dates
With NYFW fast approaching, the countdown is on: now that we’ve gotten our hands on the collection previews, Fashion Week couldn’t come soon enough. This year, not only will our favorite streetwear lines be strutting the runway; they’ll also be linking up with master designers like Louis Vuitton and Helmut Lang. Designers reached out to music mavens like Travis Scott and Kanye West to create hot collections that keep our hands in our wallet and credit cards on swipe. What’s more? Hip-hop legends aren’t the only creatives dabbling in fashion—dope artists like Yayoi Kusama have also been summoned to streetwear culture.
Peep these collections and collaborations that slay, then make sure you mark your calendar for their official release dates.
Travis Scott x Helmut Lang
Hip-hop savant Travis Scott dove into fashion collaborating this season with industry vet Helmut Lang. Via a sneak-peak on Instagram and Facebook, we got a first-hand, early look at the collection, which featured a wide range of T-shirts, jackets, trousers, loungewear, leather goods, and even sneakers. His pieces show heavy influence from his albums Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight and Rodeo with bold lettering, graphic styled bulls, and roses. Already on your must-have list? You’re in luck—the line released quietly on January 30 (a week before NYFW), and is available online and at selected retailers.Off-White Spring/Summer 2017 Collection
Off-White entered S/S with a bang, transforming the trendy rocker tee into sweaters paired with the ultimate authority in football, Umbro. The look is reminiscent of traditional sportswear jerseys, paired with shorts lined with punk graphics and patchwork for a new take on an old classic. Off-White founder Virgil Alboh revolutionized 90’s skateboard fashion when he brought it to the runway; think plaid and pinstripe baggy trousers lined with vibrant scorpion designs. Peep Off-White’s full SS/17 collection here and pre-order online. X-Large x Yayoi Kusama Collaboration
Japanese artist and designer Yayoi Kusama is back at it again with another hot collaboration with OG streetwear brand X-Large. Her signature polka dot artwork has transcended from museums to the fashion world, with graphic T-shirts, hoodies, black and yellow caps, and more pieces that are distinctly Kusama. What’s more, select tees will feature film portraits of Kusama—a bold move for the 87-year-old designer. The full collection is set to come out February 9th; get ready.Adidas x Yeezy Calabasas Powerphase
At this point in fashion, the name Yeezy is essentially synonymous with the words “sold out.” Consider this your warning for 2K17, because our boy Kanye is about to drop another unbeatable collab. Cue the “Calabasas”: a pair of Adidas Originals’ 80s style Powerphase sneakers. After rumors of a new line surfaced in September, Yeezy Mafia reports that we’ll finally be bestowed with the newest Yeezy creations come spring. But wait, it gets better; they’re only $120. We’re sold. Louis Vuitton x Supreme
Debuting at Paris Spring/Summer 2017 Fashion Week, Supreme x Louis Vuitton delivered one of the sickest collabs we’ve seen in awhile. Inspired by artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and New York nightlife, the collaboration consists of caps, sneakers, pants, and jackets, along with Supreme x LV monogrammed accessories, like backpacks, fanny packs, bandanas, card holders, and wallets. Travis Scott sat front row decked out in the collection, so you know it’s fire. The collaboration will be available for sale starting July 17.Images via Travis Scott, Style Cartel, X-Large, Hypebeast, and The Fashion Spot
