NIKE x Carhartt WIP
All you Carhartt WIP fans, the rumors are true! Following a few teasers & speculations, the NIKE x Carhartt WIP collection is now out & it is available at Nike Malaysia’s official website. The workwear powerhouse collaboration collection with Nike comprised of two Air Force 1s, an Air Force 1 Low Utility, a Vandal High Supreme and an Air Max 95 silhouette. Paying homage to the workwear synonymous with the Carhartt brand, each signature Nike silhouette is reworked with a mix of rugged woven duck canvas, thick corduroy and camo print ripstop fabric. Finally accenting the rugged bases are triple sewn seams, riveted stress points, hits of high-visibility orange and, of course, Carhartt’s signature big square logo.
NIKE x AMBUSH
Following several teasers on Yoon from AMBUSH about a potential collab, the highly anticipated collaboration of this season finally is out. Arguably the stand-out apparel piece, the faux fur jacket features a huge Swoosh on the reverse. Other pieces in the apparel capsule includes tracksuits, silver and gold metallic jackets, co-branded T-shirts, Dry-Fit Stretch tights and fleece sweatpants. The sneaker — a mid-top boot version of the Air Max 180 — is inspired by the archival Air Zoom Flight “The Glove” and is officially unveiled in two different colorways. As well as the previously-teased white colorway, the collaborative sneaker will also release in a black construction.
Dime Holiday 18’ Collection
The Montreal based skateboarding collective has recently launched their Holiday 18’ just in time with the Christmas season. The collection consists of bright blocked colored fleece jacket, colorful puffer jacket, graphic tees, quirky memorabilia like a bobber head figurine & hats. The jackets may not be appropriate for the hot & humid Malaysian weather. But the graphic tees might be a stylish appropriate choice. Lucky for all Malaysian, Krookz651 in Bangsar are bringing the tees, hats & the bobber head figurine. So be sure to head on quick to cop em’ before it sells out!
