KIM GORDON FOR & OTHER STORIES
WHAT: Kim Gordon, the iconic artist, writer, musician and co- founder of Sonic Youth have done a collab with the brand of the H&M Group, as stated on their website,the collection features handwritten artworks that are performative but also exude a vulnerability, contrasting the structure of the clothes.

VIRGIL ABLOH FOR NIKE
WHAT: The designer and founder of OFF WHITE join forces with no other than NIKE to present a collaborative exploration of 10 Nike footwear silhouettes. This, without no doubt will be one of the sell out collabs on the coming season.
As stated on NIKE website “The 10 shoes were divided into two themes. The first, “REVEALING,” was designed to look accessible: hand-cut, open-source and reconstructed. It includes the Air Jordan I, Nike Air Max 90, Nike Air Presto, Nike Air VaporMax and Nike Blazer Mid. The second, “GHOSTING,” was designed with translucent uppers to further the idea of revealing and unite the second set of silhouettes through common material. It includes the Converse Chuck Taylor, Nike Zoom Fly SP, Nike Air Force 1 Low, Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 and Nike Air Max 97”.
WHERE: Selected stores around the world and NIKELAB.

PRICES: Not available yet.
ERDEM FOR H&M
WHAT: Of all the collabs coming on the next months, this one could be potentially controversial. As you may know, the canadian designer has spoken openly about being on the side of Slow fashion ( here you can read his words), he even collaborated with Livia Firth on a capsule collection, so now he is collaborating with the biggest Fast fashion producer?, it doesn’t make too much sense, right?, in my humble opinion, public figures should be very careful with their words and actions and not contradict themselves.
About the collection, there are no images available yet, only a teaser video directed by Baz Luhrmann, where you can see that there will be pieces for men too.
WHEN: Available on November 2nd.
WHERE: On selected H&M Stores and online.
PRICES: Not available yet.
