Streetwear and high fashion are so closely intertwined now that it can be hard to distinguish where one begins and the other ends. With the explosive rise of brands like Vetements heralding the end of any clear distinction between high and regular fashion with their (arguably) ingenious collaborations with everyone from Juicy Couture, to DHL, and Levis. In this new era of fashion, ripe with ambiguity and irony, collaborations reign supreme. Big name brands, department stores, athleisure labels, and much venerated design houses are all desperate to get in on the action and secure that elusive sold-out collaboration. We’re not even half way through 2017, but there have already been a pretty excellent selection of brand collaborations and there are many more still in the works. They’re not going anywhere soon, so we take a look back at what we’ve seen so far.
