The most unexpected fashion collabs
When fashion and pop culture collide, beautiful things tend to happen – Uniqlo springs to mind as a prime example. But sometimes, those collaborations aren’t the usual run-of-the-mill merging of forces. Regardless of whether you decry them or think they’re the best thing since sliced bread, there’s no denying that they’re a touch more unusual than the general public might expect. Either way, they’re entertaining, so take a look at our picks below:
Starbucks x Alexander Wang
If you’ve ever been afraid of spilling coffee on designer clothes, worry no more – this collaboration between Alexander Wang and Starbucks means your clothes arrive pre-stained.
Vetements x DHL
Have you ever been so happy about a package arriving that you’ve wanted to kiss the postman? No? Either way, you can celebrate your love for postal services by dressing the part.
Christopher Kane x Crocs
Ah, Crocs – the scapegoat shoe of the internet. Star of several jokes, including this one viral Vine, the Crocs team may have thought a collaboration would restore honour to the brand. With shoes that look like a seashore, it’ll make any couture-loving comedian go ‘Shell Yeah!’
Gucci x Fiat
If you’re looking for something to celebrate your love of small vehicles and luxury brands, the Gucci x Fiat collaboration is the car for you.
Isaac Mizrahi x Kleenex
You know the feeling – you’re shivering and sniffling, with a runny nose and bloodshot eyes, in the midst of the flu. Hope’s not lost, though. You can restore a part of your usually stylish persona by blowing your nose with tissues from a designer box, so that even when you’re sick, you can show off your sense of fashion.
Supreme x Kermit the Frog
In today’s streetwear-infatuated society, Supreme is king. Simple yet bold, the brand embodies the very essence of cool in contemporary youth. But there’s no cool without a healthy dose of fun, so they turned to Kermit the Frog – the unintentional instigator of many a meme.
Commes de Garcons x Nike Air Force 1s (2017)
Commes de Garcons is known for daring to try new things, and that philosophy extended to their collaboration with Nike on their Air Force 1s. Taking the vintage trend a step further, they headed to the prehistoric time for inspiration for these dinosaur-toed shoes.
Christian Cowan-Sanluis x Acer
Although this was only a way to advertise a new Acer product, as opposed to a serious collaboration, this product is entertaining enough to warrant a mention anywhere. It’ll make you a hit at parties.
