ACRONYM x NEMEN – ACRONYM departs from the monochromatic theme to deliver a splash of color with their latest NEMEN collaboration. Known for their premium Italian-made textiles, NEMEN offers up a high-end gradient print for ACRONYM’s J28-K. The technical jacket is finished with a Japanese membrane and uses a unique dying process that gives each jacket their own unique look.
Supreme x Nike – The full length Air Max sole first arrived in 1997, but it was the Air Max ’98 that perfected that cushy feel. Supreme brings back familiar memories of comfort with a new Nike collaboration. Arriving in two new colorways are a pair of Air Max ’98s that Supreme has taken some design liberties with. The black colorway uses patent leather detailing while the lighter tan uses a faux python print. Both pairs will offer subtle Supreme branding, and be in high demand. Look for these to drop later this Spring and Summer season.
Tomoo Gokita for Stussy Spring 2016 – For Spring, Stussy has teamed up with Japanese artist Tomoo Gokita to offer a small capsule collection.

Vans 50th Anniversary Premium Woven Slip-On – Vans is turning fifty and the checkerboard Slip-On made famous by Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times gets an update. The vulcanized sole is usually paired with canvas, but for this round it comes with a premium look. This anniversary edition utilizes a luxurious supple leather that uses contrasting black and white woven strips. At $140 a pair, these should last a bit longer than your usual Slip-Ons.
HUF x Spam – Some argue that Spam may have turned the tide during World War II, and it looks like HUF has the same sort of respect and reverence for the canned meat. For Spring 2016, the skate brand from the Bay Area pays homage to the Hawaiian and military staple with a football jersey, camouflage overshirt, socks, sneakers, and a mesh trucker cap. The capsule collection is in select stores now, along with the HUF online store.
BAPE x Dover Street Market Ginza – Dover Street Market is storming the exclusive market with special projects that run from Supreme to Anti Social Social Club and now BAPE. Using the simple Ape head silhouette, the collection features pocket T-shirts, button-down shirts, and athletic crew-necks that subtly mention DSMG and BAPE in a talk bubble. Look for this collaboration to be sold exclusively at the Dover Street Market’s Ginza location.
TCL 4K with Roku – Televisions that can display 4k content are getting stupid cheap, and one of the largest players in the game is TCL.

At $500, the S-Series offers a 4K display across a 55 inch screen and offers up Roku functionality.
