While Kappa has long been associated with soccer and athletic wear, recent collaborations with Gosha have brought the brand to prominence with a new audience of fashion-minded consumers. As a reaction to that demand Kappa has taken from the soccer kits of the late ’80s and early ’90s. The companies archives are minded and re-constiteuted in this new capsule collection targeted at the streetwear market. While the gear is set to release this Fall, there’s no exact launch date just yet but look for more info through the official site and stockists like Slam Jam.

WTAPS always strikes that careful balance of maintaining their aesthetic while bringing out fire variations on the staples they’ve become known for. Fall/Winter 2017 does have quite a few heaters in it. First among which is the tactical field jacket above. It seems the Japanese label has struck a careful balance between a full on militaristic approach and more laid back streetwear staples. Other standouts here include a cowichan sweater, chore coat, and beige parka. Also of note are the Timberland boots in brown suede that is a great take on the staple 6″ boot.

Look for the collection to hit shops including END and Need Supply.

New Balance drops a Made in USA rendition of the iconic 990 model. his time around, the retro runner is constructed with an olive and black woven mesh base paired with complimenting black suede on the upper. The darker look is contrasted with veggie tanned leather accents at the tongue and heel counter for a subtle luxurious flare. An off-white ABZORB outsole with red accents finishes off the model. In my opinion these are some of the best NBs to drop this year, available at online at Feature Sneaker Boutique.

Noah is a label that is always worth keeping an eye on. Designer Brandon Babenzian delivers one of his strongest showings yet with this Fall/Winter 2017 lookbook. Really exploring 80s and 90s New York street style, the collection is a mix of preppy knits, simple graphic streetwear, and excellent styled tailored pieces. One of the hardest looks to pull off is the suit with a graphic tee and it’s done here effortlessly. Look for pieces to drop soon over at Noah.

The long awaited navy/volt color way of the Air Max 97 is finally set to be released. The 20th anniversary is allowing Nike to really honor the Air Max 97 with new color ways but also bringing backk classics. These images of the Navy/Volt OG have arrived and they look excellent. Remaining as one of the few original pairs yet to retro this year, it’s likely they’ll align with Nike’s fall 2017 campaign.

At this point in Shadow Project’s development , the line’s identity has been solidified. Entering into it’s 19th season the label continues to further differentiate itself further from mainline Stone Island. Most notably the fall/winter collection is packed with heavy winter gear. An array of colorful down jackets and graphic patterned bombers grab most of the attention.

In terms of actual function some of the new features include ’Tilt Storage Pockets’, a seperated series of sloped pockets using a single zipper that runs around the entire piece. Also shown are elasticated ‘Articulation Tunnels’, that allow the wearer to adjust the garment’s shape.

Although it’s hard to ignore the new boots and accessories that complete the looks. It seems Errolson Hugh has found his comfort zone and continues to make SISP a universe onto itself. Look for the items to drop on Stone Island’s  online store and online at Farfetch.

I love Nike Air Max 97s and I’m glad Nike is finally giving the shoe more attention. You can see a trio of color ways on feet in the post. It’s nice to see Nike reaching back into the archives for OG designs as well as innovating with new variations and materials. All three three are launching this week on August 3rd and retailing approximately $200USD at retailers including Nike and BSTN.

SOPHNET is one of those Japanese streetwear labels that’s consistent as hell but somehow remains under the mainstream radar. As one of the better kept secrets in fashion outside of Asia, SOPHNET delivers strong staples each year. Fall/Winter 2017 is no exception with another strong lineup of garments. My favorites this time around are the leather bomber, knits and technical outerwear pieces. The hard part is tracking down the items themselves but look for a good selection from SOPHNET over at END.
