Fashion collaborations can be challenging and astounding. We see designers pair up in what seems like an impossible combination and nail it. Here are the best four fashion collaborations, which creative ideas revolutionize modern and classic designs altogether.
1. Louis Vuitton x Supreme
French fashion house Louis Vuitton sued American streetwear label Supreme in 2000 for incorporating its logo into LV’s signature pattern. 17 years later, the two brands finally buried the hatchet as evidenced by their highly-coveted collaboration from skateboard trunk to clothing. The intense popularity of the collaboration was the result of a one-day sale in a few cities worldwide. Even though there is public demand, the streetwear and luxury brands are yet to produce more products and remakes.
2. Yohji Yamamoto x Adidas
When Adidas asked legendary Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto to design a pair of sneakers, the result was nothing short of phenomenal. The limited 50,000 pairs were selling like hotcakes around the world. This big success led to another promising collaboration between the sports brand and the famed designer- Y-3. Y represents Yamamoto, and three stood for the signature three-stripe logo of Adidas. How did the collab fare? Another big hit again. In fact, Y-3 is over a decade old in the industry.
3. Uniqlo x Jil Sander
The minimalist German designer Jil Sander is known for her accurate tailoring and demure colors, so her collaboration with minimalist Japanese retailer Uniqlo is not a surprise at all. Following her retirement from her namesake brand, Sander launched her fashion consultancy in 2009 and her very first client was Uniqlo. Sander supervises the design and style of +J, a collection of menswear and womenswear. The collaboration of the two fashion giants was a sweet success for a couple of years until they mutually ended their terms.
4. Crocs x Balenciaga
We can’t blame you if you never thought of Crocs as an exciting fashion brand. Have you seen its collaborations with Balenciaga (platform clogs)? They may look strange to some, but hey, the weird pairs of clogs sold out in no time just moments after they were posted online for pre-orders! Curious as to how Balenciaga’s platform Crocs look like?
