Lewis Hamilton x Takashi Murakami for +44
Motorsports and art have come together for a collaboration between British racecar driver Lewis Hamilton and Japanese artist Takashi Murakami for the brand +44. The clothing brand comes from the imagination of Hamilton, and the capsule collection, “The Vegas Trip,” is inspired by Formula 1’s upcoming Las Vegas Grand Prix. Spanning over 27 pieces, the collection features graphics and motifs from the creative genius of Murakami, such as his signature happy and colorful flowers known as Mr. DOB, mushrooms, and more. The show's main star contributing to the drop’s buzz is a long-sleeved graphic t-shirt with equal parts color and style. Hamilton’s own signatures can also be found through “LH” lettering and the number 44 as a tribute to the label. The drop is set to release on November 15th on +44’s website.
MARKET x NPR
In an unlikely pairing, clothing brand MARKET, and notorious media channel NPR have come together for a collaboration and limited capsule collection. In a collection titled “FACTS,” a range of simple pieces are available, all sporting the “FACTS” and “NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO” lettering, from t-shirts and hoodies to hats. Colors range from white and black with blue and red being the staple color scheme for the NPR iconography. MARKET gushed about the stance that NPR has taken over the years, being a reputable source for unbiased news. The brand felt it was only suitable to shoot the capsule collection campaign in the infamous Tiny Desk studio, a channel beloved by NPR listeners. Check out the collection on MARKET’s website.
Billionaire Boys Club Winter 2023 Collection
As a final tribute to the brand’s 20 years of influence in the fashion industry, Billionaire Boys Club has released a drop for Winter 2023, spanning over two releases. “The Scientist” is the first release of the collection, taking inspiration from human interest in exploring the unknown. It features garments made from fleece and sherpa and pieces such as a pull-over and checkered crewneck that stand out as statement pieces. Typical oversized puffer jackets can also be found alongside staple varsity jackets characteristic of the label. The second release, titled “The Botanist,” takes a more naturalistic approach in theme, with pieces such as a faux-fur hood-lined bomber jacket and a floral printed button-up jacket of earthier tones. Check out the collection on the Billionaire Boys Club website.
Supreme x BLESS Fall 2023
Supreme has taken things abroad for their latest Fall 2023 collaboration with Berlin and Paris-based design studio BLESS. BLESS, known for its everyday and realistic approach to clothing, accessories, and furniture through recycled materials, has partnered with Supreme to add a hint of oddity to an otherwise simplistic design that Supreme is known for. For a Fall 2023 collection, the two labels have created a range of simple pieces but have added bits of flare thanks to BLESS and its imagination. Sweatpants have now been turned into Sweatpant Jeans as a combination of the two garments, and t-shirts and crewnecks range from simple lettering to chaotic graphics. Check out the collection on the Supreme website.
