Check out how things went down last week…

Wu Tang’s Wu Wear is officially back on the scene to collect the ‘cream’ on their recent holiday collection. Their streetwear capsule release actually coincides with the 25th anniversary of the group’s “36 Chambers” album. The revival of the Wu label has implemented evolving modifications to properly market for their second generation fan-base, yet maintains their cultural frame in which we’re all familiar with regardless of age. Robert Diggs aka RZA confirmed this by stating how this collection is “the original aesthetic and the same purpose as classic Wu Wear.”, and we’re here for it. The unisex collection is currently on sale now online, but don’t rest too easy because the rumor mill is churning for more releases as well as collaborations to release from the Wu Wear label sooner than later.

Billabong Lab and Iggy Pop aka “Godfather of Punk” has joined forces for a 16-piece collection release. I have to declare that up until his recent fashion relevance, I’ve slept on Iggy all of my life. However, to give you just a little background info, he’s best known for being the lead singer for the Stooges band, rendering unpredictable onstage antics with each performance. He also made entertaining performances with The Prime Movers, The Iguanas, The Trolls, and the Iggy Pop with Freedom – again I’ve straight zzzzz’d out on his relevance, but his collection is something to consider. The capsule contains shorts, tees, towels, hats, hoodies, and even a wet suit to name a few of the items. Billabong’s VP of Global Marketing, Scott Hargraves stated, “We are honored to be working so closely with Iggy on this curated men’s and women’s collection. He’s a true cultural icon, and we hope to pay homage to this living legend through our collaboration.” Expect the collection to be reasonably priced from $24.95 to $129.95 at select specialty stores as well as online here.

In celebration of The Last Jedi movie set to release within the states December 15th, Columbia Sportswear paid reverence by releasing their three-outerwear collection this past Friday. I have to admit, I am not a Star Wars fan in the least, but I am a fan of the fans. Star Wars supporters have dedication like Cleveland Browns fans, it doesn’t matter how long it’s been relevant their love remains as firm as King James. Those same Star Wars enthusiasts didn’t sleep on this Columbia release as the entire collection is completely sold out. All of the jackets came in the retailer’s Echo Base silhouette, paying homage to the characters such as the Luke Skywalker Jacket, Leila Organa Jacket, and the Han Solo Parka. With the exception of the autographed Luke Skywalker jacket signed by Harrison Ford which sold for $1980, all of the other jackets retailed for $400 apiece.
