Get your wallets ready. This week, Union Los Angeles is dropping its highly-anticipated Jordan collaboration, Alexander Wang’s fourth season for Adidas Originals is hitting stores, and Nike has more ACG pieces coming. And that’s not even everything that’s releasing. Here is a complete rundown of the best styles releases of the week.
Nike ACG Holiday 2018 Collection
Release Date: Nov. 16
Where to Buy It: nike.com and other select retailers
Nike is dropping a brand new line of ACG apparel for the holiday season. The retro-inspired collection includes anoraks, fleece hoodies and pants, long sleeve T-shirts emblazoned with a playful yeti illustration, and accessories with bold color blocking. Classic ACG logos can be seen across the functional lineup to further drive home the ’90s vibe.
Concepts x Canada Goose ’10 Years’ Denary Jacket
Concepts is celebrating 10 years of working with Canada Goose by releasing a special edition Denary Jacket. The black jacket is highlighted by 3M “Concepts” script running down the left arm. Another major detail is the Velcro section on each shoulder that can be customized with flag patches for the United States, Canada, Japan, Russia, United Arab Emirates, and the Concepts’ logo. There’s also reflective taping on the back and the Boston-based boutique’s logo repeated on the inner lining of the winter coat.
Union Los Angeles x Jordan Collection
Release Date: Nov. 17
Where to Buy It: Union Los Angeles and unionjordan.com
While the Union Air Jordan Is is the most anticipated release from the collaboration, there’s also plenty of apparel worth copping. T-shirts, hoodies, shorts, and pants all feature retro-inspired Jordan logos and images. Each is perfectly patina’d to look like a vintage piece you would find at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. The blue colorways are Union exclusives, but the red and black options will be getting a more widespread release in the coming weeks.
Adonis Creed x Nike Training Collection
Release Date: Nov. 15
Where to Buy It: nike.com and select Nike stores
Nike is celebrating the upcoming release of Creed II with a collection of training apparel centered around the film’s main character, Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan). T-shirts, zip-up hoodies, pants, and shorts are inspired by Adonis’ training regimen and will feature a special Creed logo. Completing the offering is a boxing-inspired edition of the Metcon 3 sneaker with a higher ankle collar and unique details, like the patented stars and stripes seen on Creed’s trunks in the film. Creed II opens in theaters on Thanksgiving (Nov. 21).
