TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE: THE BEST MENSWEAR COLLABS OF 2018 SO FAR

Share

WORDS BY JOSEPH FURNESS

 

It’s Gemini season: what better time to celebrate the best double acts? So here are the top fashion collaborations of the year so far — and the proof that some things are better together.

Browns x Off-White

 

Off-White’s collaboration with the London boutique Browns stays true to the brand’s streetwear origins. Think of this collection as a refresh: Virgil Abloh’s staple pieces, produced in new patterns and hues. After all: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Adidas Originals x Alexander Wang

 

Give Alexander Wang access to your brand, and he’ll turn it on its head - literally. The American designer’s ongoing collaboration with Adidas sees the sportswear giant’s iconic trefoil logo turned upside down, while their three-stripe is turned inside out. This alliance defines sporty chic.

Y-3 x James Harden

The unexpected collaboration between Houston Rockets basketball player James Harden and Y-3 is one of the year’s strongest. The collection revolves around the Botan flower emblem, the so-called king of flowers that symbolises bravery, nobility and good fortune. Flower power for the 21st Century.

424 x Armes

Bleach is the word for 424's collaboration with underground brand Armes; their limited edition collection features one-of-a-kind hand-bleached versions of the LA brand’s most classic pieces. Designed in collaboration with artist Thomas Koenig, the 15-piece capsule collection is available exclusively at Browns.
