Layer 0 x Guidi jackets :droolingcowboy: I am sure it would look goofy as fuck but I cannot shake it from the back of my mind.

Probably just burnout/echoing general sentiment but collabs were so omnipresent in the 2010’s I feel like I haven’t seen one I enjoyed in a long time

Seems like the main way people into clothing interact with collabs now is by having to scroll past them when looking for mainline secondhand Uniqlo x Lemaire

Oh these are cool. Does guidi normally do stuff other than footwear?

they do footwear, belts, jewelry, and bags, and this is basically a unique collab with Layer-0 others use Guidi leathers that they buy from Guidi as the supplier but it's not formally a collab

i think there needs to be a term to differentiate between two brands sharing dna and some fancy-schmancy brand doing a one-off diffusion line with a high street retailer

people need to stop putting secondhand uniqlo x lemaire stuff on ebay as the designer brand OR price what i meant to say is, collabs can be interesting and fruitful but a) i think ideally both brands are invested to make a quality product and b) the consumer is aware of what makes the collab special

I'm currently in mourning because I want the BEAMS x New Balance 550 "Crazy Navy" collab, and I have been unable to get it so far.

What are some of the bad ones I guess I’m not a fan of a lot of the Nike collabs

the fragment one is pointless just two buds hanging out and charging 1.5k for a coat

Yeah, I think Uniqlo x EG could be similar. When I looked at them in the store, seemed like nice design, but not really great materials.

Yeah not a fan of collabs that just slap a logo on This is all Uniqlo collabs though, higher end designs with uniqlo level materials and construction

I'm not really a huge ALD head but I love some of the colorways they've done in their New Balance collabs

Was gonna say for lots of footwear collabs have become exhausted and boring in the past 5-6 years. Some tasteful products still come out, like the ALD NB, but it is less common imo

I think the only collab I have currently is the Blackstock & Weber x 3Sixteen loafers. Big fan.

i liked maybe about half of the ffxiv x puma collab shoes. i stayed a million miles away from whatever athleisure they might’ve done for it. i’m still trying to get one of the shoes secondhand bc puma sucks and i don’t want to give them my money.

All of North Face Purple Label is a great collab between North Face and Nanamica.

Those are handsome. 3sixteen does good collabs. I even like the TF jean This I feel like transcends collab. But that’s semantics
jawntanamo_bae
jawntanamo_bae3mo ago
I like it except the Throwing Fits label

Considering how stuffy the general opinion of Barbour is/was in the UK, the collabs have been great for them.

The Brain Dead x Magic The Gathering collabs are a favorite in recent memory. It feels true to both brands imo and not just a logo slapped on there. Also it was fairly priced for the MTG accessories (i bought the dice and a playmat) I’m a fan of Supreme and I like when they collaborate with brands who make normal household goods (Stanley flasks, Heller mugs, Moccamaster coffee maker)
