Celebrating a decade of collaboration between Stone Island’s Carlo Rivetti and Errolson Hugh & Micheal Sachenbacher of ACRONYM, Shadow Project has released a lookbook for their 21st collection 6919./

Driven by the fundamental processes of exploration, development, and expression, the 10-year anniversary collection marries comfort and carrying capability. The label has a series of flank and drop pockets for all your every day goods. Perhaps the most important and eye-catching aspect of the collection is the research put into the fabrics themselves.  The pay off comes via Scarebeo textile which is a conspicuously reflective iridescent material inspired by the exterior of beetles. The ever-popular Stealth jacket serves as an excellent example of this new iridescent treatment. Items are available at stockists including SSENSE and E-35.

ACRONYM has released several new items from their SS18 collection today. Among the products are several jackets, 2 pairs of pants and  a re-stock of the s21-DS jersey hoodie. Several brand new models are appearing for the first time ever including the new P30 pant which comes in both Dryskin and CH fabrics. Based on BDU cargo pants, the P30 is an ultrawide 3/4 length zero-resistance utility pant that features articulated knees, and an updated integrated beltless fully-adjustable waistband. Fans of wider silohuettes from ACR will likely welcome this model into their wardrobe. Another new entrant is the J59TS-CH which is a TECSYS compatible loose bomber style jacket.  Cavernous detached entry and internal chest pockets are the highlight of this piece along with  the more relaxed shape of the garment. For a more minimal approach, the J69-GT is self-described by ACR as a jacket that you wear like a biker jacket but that has absolutely nothing to do with biker jackets. This style is finished with a new convertible-style collar. Explore the entire selection over the on ACRNM website or wait for the release on stockists including END which should be releasing items soon.

Nike has really invested in their tech-friendly running offerings with the Zoom Fly and Epic React models. The latest shoe in the same vein is the new EXP-X14, a futuristic-looking sneaker that was first unveiled last week.

Nodding to Nike’s rich running heritage while still pushing the envelope of technology, the EXP-X14’s translucent upper is an upgrade from the retro Nike Zoom Drive, a running silhouette from the mid 90s. The midsole boasts an exposed yellow TPU plate and a slim heel design that nod to the ultra-fast Zoom Vaporfly 4%. Even the shoe’s name is packed full of Nike lore, as “EXP” is short for experiment, and X14 is the original internal Nike code name for React cushioning technology, which appears in the shoe’s midsole. Other details on the sneaker include a medial side screen print that represent the legendary Steve Prefontaine’s fastest time in the mile—3 minutes and 54.6 seconds. The shoe also visibly includes  bold Flywire cables and a unique high heel design.

The shoe is set to release in three colorways (blue/volt, rose gold/gold and black/red) all with bright and bold accents on June 28th in Europe via the SNKRS app before rolling out to North America and Greater China July 5th via SNKRS and Nike. Enjoy a set of images for the futuristic shoes below, and let us know what you think of the continued modern-day fusion of lifestyle and performance silhouettes.
