OVO x Spaulding for Raptors – The Raptors have a legitimate chance in the NBA playoffs and no one is happier than Cash Money recording artist Drake. The Raptors now have two mascots as Drake lends the OVO owl on a collaborative Spaulding basketball for the Atlantic Division front runners. Foregoing the traditional orange in favor of a dark synthetic base, the basketball is further adorned with metallic gold logos. The basketballs retail for $38 and are perfect for your office, living room, recording studio/closet, anywhere but a real basketball court (you will get beat up).

Louis Vuitton Regatta – Luxury brands have never shied away from borrowing from conventional sneaker brands, but this latest release from Louis Vuitton looks awfully familiar to Yohji Yamamoto’s Qasa. The new Regatta arrives with a similar silhouette that uses a neoprene upper and a large mid-foot Velcro strap. Using bright nautical blues and reds, the sneaker also uses a midsole that is eerily similar to the adidas Tubular. It’s pretty easy to confuse the new Regatta as a limited pair of adidas sneakers, and that may not be such a good thing for LVMH.

There are also a heavy supply of button-down shirts—and graphic T-shirts and headwear are the main staples.
