The BAE Bulletin: Here's Where and When to Cop This Week's Hottest Items
Including Supreme’s first drop of the season.
We have a tight grip on the last days of summer, but retailers are all fall-ready right now. With that in mind, we should be too. It’s so hard to say goodbye to lengthy days of sunshine and everything else this season has to offer, but at least it gives us another reason to shop.
It also means that Supreme is officially back with a new collection, and the first drop of many doesn’t disappoint. Some of our favorite sneaker brands are re-upping on gear too, like Nike, PUMA and Reebok. Keep on reading to find out all the items you should make room in your budget for this week.
Release Date: August 22
Release Price: $52 USD, available at kkweauty.com
Of course Kim Kardashian’s first KKW Beauty product sold out almost immediately upon launch. The Crème Contour and Highlight Kit has restocked several times since, but she’s about to release her next product that’s the same, but different. It’s another contour and highlight kit, but with a powder formula instead.
The Powder Contour and Highlight Kit will come in light, medium and dark palettes, each complete with two bronzer shades and two shimmery shades and a new KKW Beauty kabuki brush for application. Set a reminder for 12 p.m. PST because it’s going to go fast.
Release Date: August 23
Release Price: $190 USD, available at Nike retailers in Europe
This year officially introduced us to the Nike Air VaporMax, “Pure Platinum” being the first of many colorways to get everyone hyped, especially after the COMME des GARÇONS version released as a special-edition quickstrike. For those that missed out, “Pure Platinum” is restocking — but in Europe only at this time. For those that can, don’t miss out on grabbing a pair another time.
Release Date: August 24
Release Price: Varies, available at A.P.C.
For 2017 fall/winter, A.P.C. is pledging its allegiance to Los Angeles. The Parisian brand goes west for a five-piece capsule dedicated to the City of Angels.
A hoodie and crewneck get A.P.C. branding with an L.A. stamp, while three T-shirts name the capital’s locales.
After first acting as a brand ambassador for PUMA, The Weeknd prepares for his debut drop with the brand. His XO line will deliver a range of apparel including bomber jackets, kimonos and a standout rusty orange raincoat, as well as his first shoe, the Parallel.
The Parallel is a high-top silhouette with a utilitarian aesthetic — a sneaker-boot hybrid. Bronze elements, like the aglets and eyelets, offset the tan construction to complete.
Release Date: August 24
Release Price: $88 USD, at Supreme
The Supreme x Louis Vuitton hysteria has finally died down, and the streetwear stalwart is back to its regularly scheduled releases. The first drop already took place at the New York, Los Angeles, Europe and Japan flagship stores, and next the webstore will be opening its virtual doors.
There’s a whole lot to look forward to with the 2017 fall/winter collection, like pieces featuring artwork from Mark Gonzalez, furry jackets and even ‘Preme-branded chopsticks. One thing we’re hoping to add-to-cart this week is the Waist Bag, which is constructed from 100D Cordura laminated ripstop nylon and has a 3M Reflective logo printed across the bottom. It will undoubtedly be one of the first items to sell out.
Release Date: August 25
Release Price: TBD, available at Nike x Nordstrom sneaker boutiques
Nike linked up with A.L.C. to design a limited-edition Cortez collection that aligns with the LA-based brand’s 2017 fall collection. The classic silhouette gets a luxe makeover as the upper is wrapped in suede and a snake print slithers onto the heel. The collaboration offers three colorways — salmon pink, beige and black — each with extra long laces and a special message printed onto the footbed.
Release Date: August 26
Release Price: $120 USD, available at Reebok stockists like Sole Finess
Reebok Classic is keeping it peachy on the newest Club C 85. But there’s a bright and shiny twist — “Metallic Peach” isn’t anything like the average. The hue covers the upper and laces monochromatically before it ends on a white EVA midsole. It’s an easy way to add luster to your sneaker rotation.
