Streetwear is still riding strong. Of all the categories in the fashion industry, it is the one that’s most coveted nowadays, selling out in mere days, if not hours. From luxury brands to burgeoning labels with an impressive amount of clout, seemingly everyone has jumped on the bandwagon, offering pieces to woo the very discerning, very selective fan base. Because while everyone can call a streetwear collection, not all are legit.

Want to know the real deal from the dudes? This week’s menswear releases are chock full of ’em, a virtual pantheon of streetwear gods. There’s Aimé Leon Dore, who partnered with Woolrich on a collection that’s an homage to fly fishing. Speaking of the pastime, the cool sneakers that Matthew Williamson debuted on Givenchy’s spring 2022 runway are now available for purchase. Chris Bevans has also ventured into the great outdoors, partnering with Eddie Bauer on a capsule that’ll look just as good in Brooklyn as in Boulder. Balenciaga, the streetwear king of Paris Fashion Week, also has a new drop that’s all the rave. Bape and Heron Preston partnered on a collection that just can’t be missed. And Rhude took The Webster for a spin.

On Givenchy’s spring 2022 runway, creative director Matthew Williams presented a collection of sharply fitted suits and overcoats done up with a panoply of pockets (think fly fishing) and sleek silver hardware. The whole vibe was a cross between techwear, athleisure, gorpcore, and Mod styles. And the shoe presented was the TK-360, a just-released custom-molded knit sneaker with a striking arch and a futuristic vibe.

Two of the coolest names in streetwear have finally joined forces. Bape, the Japanese cult label founded by man-of-the-moment Nigo, and Heron Preston, a designer who’s celebrated for his use of construction gear-adjacent hardware and utility fabrics, have teemed on a collection that blends both their distinct aesthetics in a solid package that’ll sure to become a collector’s item.
