Fans of Guerrilla Group’s offerings have been patiently waiting for the latest EYES&SINS collection from the collective. The FW16 collection is here and entitled THE SLEƎPER. The collection takes inspiration from a little known cold war Soviet clandestine operation explained on their site. The actual pieces themselves once again extend the mix of techwear and militarism we’ve gotten to know. Some of the more interesting pieces including  beefed up winter noragi and also a technical apron piece similar to what you might see welder’s use.

While a couple pieces have been spotted on the site for sale, expect the entire collection to be available later tonight on the GFIRMG site.

Undercover returns this season for a second round of collaborations with Supreme. The line this year is even more expansive than last years selection. The typical selection of branded typographic graphics is back along with some suprises (a doc martin boot, supreme GILApple and a reversible bomber). Graphic zip and pullover hoodies, tees, an all over coaches jacke,  bondage pant and a wool coat are some of the other options available this time around.  While the fit and production looks to come from Supreme, expect the line to sell out immediately regardless. Personally I think this collection is a step up from last years, and I have a feeling we might see this become a yearly thing similar to the CdG x Supreme capsules. Whether it’s worth the resell pricing or the hassle is up to you.

The collection will be available at Supreme’s in-store locations in New York, Los Angles, London, Paris, as well as its online store from September 22. Japan will see a September 24 launch date.

Perpetual techwear favorite Shadow Project is back with another directional collection. The fall collection utilizes over-dyed textiles that pull from the expert techniques of the parent brand Stone Island. All the winter outerwear bases are covered from bubble-goose jackets and insulated bombers to parkas and vests. There’s a heavy emphasis on zippers, pockets and practical details. The best iteration of this idea in the collection is a jacket with a large front zip-out pocket (large enough to store a laptop or other electronics).

More after the jump and you can find the collection at the usual stockists END and Oki-Ni.

Nanamica always puts out one of my favorite loobooks each season. Remember wearing North Face in high school? I feel like Nanamica is the grad school version of that look. You have the reassurance of proper technical features when it comes to the elements but the label also combines it with relaxed tailoring and great fabrics. If you want something versatile that you can work to work and on vacation, it’s hard to beat Nanamica.

Shop the selection on their site and through retailers like END and SJS.

It’s important for new brands to establish themselves through not only the product design but the presentation of the clothes themselves. A new line based out of Toronto called Index grabs attention straight off the bat with it’s gritty, textured take on men’s wear. Combining a relaxed silhouette with details such as raw hems and asymmetrical hardware, the line strikes a balance between the technical and the natural. The line uses many Japanese fabrics but are made in Canada. Pieces will be produced in limited quantities and are releasing soon, although they are available for pre-order now through the Index website.
