As summer approaches, several brands have unveiled exclusive collaborations. Supreme has once again joined forces with Nike, Daily Paper teamed up with Beats, Tommy Jeans and the NBA paid homage to the 1990s, Uniqlo partnered with the Final Fantasy video game series, while Bricks & Wood and K-Swiss paid tribute to African-American designers. Streetwear is certainly stealing the spotlight this month of May.
Supreme x Nike
The streetwear brand Supreme’s spring 2022 capsule collection, made in collaboration with the sportswear giant Nike, was released on May 26.
Available on the New York-based brand’s online website, the streetwear lineup consists of corduroy hoodies, cargo pants as well as cotton sweatpants. In addition, the collection includes crewneck sweaters and caps that are also available in camouflage print.
Daily Paper x Beats
Daily Paper, the Dutch streetwear label founded by Hussein Suleiman, Abderrahmane Trabsini and Jefferson Osei, teamed up with the brand Beats By Dre to create a pair of wireless headphones inspired by New York’s 1980s and 1990s hip-hop and graffiti scene.
The water resistant headphones, available since May 26 on the ready-to-wear brand’s e-shop and in select stores, retail for 149.95 euros and have a 24 hour battery life. The white earbuds’ design features the Beats b logo in black and a graffiti-inspired version of the Daily Paper logo in red.
"Music is an essential part of our brand identity, as it allows us to bring communities together. Working with Beats has always been on our list of desired collaborations," said Abderrahmane Trabsini, one of Daily Paper’s co-founders.
The alliance between the two brands was established last year when they created a pouch made from 100% recyclable materials in celebration of Earth Day.
