2021 has been a mixed bag of challenges and setbacks for most businesses. Fortunately, this is when the most level-headed and creative minds prevail. For sure, they may have paused for a bit but that didn’t stop them from creating quality collaborations throughout the year.
From music to pop culture, to luxury brands, these international labels have been pushing the envelope on where the scene can go. Some may be predictable, others may come left field, but no matter what happens, streetwear will always be here to stay. Here’s our top 5 list for the most notable international streetwear collabs for 2021.
This is Hype’s Top 5 International Streetwear collabs for 2021
- Supreme X Tiffany & Co.
- The Hundreds X Sepultura
- Chrome Hearts X Drake
- Travis Scott X Fragment Design X Jordan Brand
- Louis Vuitton X NBA
Supreme X Tiffany & Co.
Diamonds, streetwear- hype! It’s always been a fact that Supreme has always been a luxurious brand. No stranger in collaborations with high-end brands like Louis Vuitton, this one may be one of their most big-name collabs yet.
Hands down one of their fastest-selling collaborations, the collection boasted of accessories that gave Tiffany & Co. classics a skate/ urban aesthetic and hypebeast appeal.
The Hundreds X Sepultura
This is a bit unexpected really, but knowing The Hundreds and their music-oriented roots, a collaboration with a legendary Brazilian thrash act can never be out of the equation.
This collaboration with Sepultura was created to span the band’s colorful career, each piece paying tribute to their classics as well as their new offerings. From shirts, long sleeves, hoodies, hats, and accessories, the collaboration brings The Hundreds to a new level this time eschewing the safe rapper collaboration route. Props to them and horns up.
Chrome Hearts X Drake
With the rapper being a fan of the brand, the result is probably one of the most coveted and talked about collaborations for 2021.
To accompany the cross-stamped signature hoodies, the said team-up includes a custom Rolls Royce complete with “f*ck you” engraved rims- if that won’t set street standards we don’t know what will.
Travis Scott X Fragment Design X Jordan Brand
Often eclipsed by the Air Jordan 1 collaboration, Travis Scott and Fragment Design AKA Hiroshi Fujiwara were as involved with the Jordan brand through a capsule collection featuring a hoody, a tee, and shorts.
If it was any consolation, the clothing can be your second best bet in carrying the triple collaboration’s fire appeal. Say what you want about Travis Scott but his collaborations will always be sold like hotcakes within the realm of streetwear.
Louis Vuitton X NBA
Thanks to Virgil Abloh‘s 90’s basketball theme for the brand, the collaboration resulted in a barrage of LV stamped retro prints across three product lines: travel, game-time, and press conferences. On top of that came an interesting showcase of lifestyle items that included an LV-branded basketball, talk about luxurious functionality!
