Steven Harrington for Nixon – After some questionable watches with Star Wars, Nixon is back on track with a new project with artist Steven Harrington. The contemporary pop art of Harrington will be featured on the dial of the popular Time Teller. The graphic pays homage to vintage cartoons, and will arrive with its own gold metallic gold presentation box. There will also be a limited version of the Sentry that will have Harrington’s graphic embossed across the leather strap. Both pieces will feature a 3-hand Miyota quartz movement and produced in a limited number of 50 pieces.
Taylor Stitch x Mission Workshop – Taylor Stitch and Mission Workshop are two American brands that continue to work with another. For this round, the focus is on the overshirt, a seemingly basic button-down that is a bit heavier to resist the elements. The Albion is a collaborative version that will feature an exterior made from two-way stretch windshell nylon that’s both water resistant and fast drying, while the interior is lined with high loft Polartec fleece. Metal snaps from Prym line the front and complete the outdoor look.

KITH x Garrett Leight – KITH continues to prove they have more up their sleeves than a sneaker.

The frames are a blend of acetate and metal and will feature special KITH branding along the exterior of the arms. Look for the small collection to drop today at the KITH flagship stores and online.
Kanye West for Donda West – The latest Kanye West merchandise honors the artist’s late mother, Donda West.

The crew-neck is available now for $140 on Kanye’s website.
Filson Wedge Tent – Most modern tents are domed-shaped with some even coming with multiple rooms, but not Filson. The American brand is a loyalist and their new Wedge Tent looks like something straight out of the Boy Scout handbook. Made from heavy duty 10-oz Marine Finish Army Duck canvas, the angular tent can fight off heavy rain and snow. Set up is as easy as finding two trees, or opt for the included poles. The special canvas makes the tent mildew resistant and a heavy zipper ensures to keep the elements out.
Jordan x Neymar – Jordan has transcended basketball and is now an icon of excellence as Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior of FC Barcelona opts for his own special Air Jordan Retro 5 Low. The limited sneaker is an example of Neymar’s adulation of Jordan, and arrives with a reflective silver upper, black speckling, and a bit of infrared. In addition to the flashy details, look for Neymar’s number to replace the 23 on the heel in this exclusive variation of the Retro 5.
