From springtime apparel staples like the classic sundress to must-have accessories like sunglasses and sandals, luxury designers this season are giving us exactly what we need via collaborative collections. Ahead, shop the best luxury collaborations that launched in April (slash late-March) - each deserving a permanent spot in your spring rotation.
Off-White x SSENSE
Off-White teamed with SSENSE on a fitness capsule collection called WORKOUT. The range of leggings, sports bras, sweaters and crop tops each features Off-White’s iconic yellow trademark.
No stranger to ultra-creative collaborations with luxury labels, Birkenstock once again joined forces with Opening Ceremony for its latest line of must-have sandals. Celebrating all things neon, the capsule reinvents Birkenstock’s Zurich silhouette.
Sunglass aficionado Thierry Lasry partnered with Rhuigi Villaseñor’s streetwear brand Rhude to create a pair of unisex sunglasses. Called Rhodeo, the style comes in eight colorways and were handmade in France using Mazzuchhelli Italian acetate.
Bringing together two distinctive cult-followings, the limited-edition collaboration from skatewear brand Supreme and couturier Jean-Paul Gaultier is unlike any other. The 17-piece Spring/Summer 2019 collection includes a faux fur coat, printed jeans, sunglasses, a reversible backpack and two pairs of Vans.
With his latest union with Uniqlo, Alexander Wang wants to keep you cool this season. The duo created a line of underwear crafted with Uniqlo’s proprietary AIRism fabric, which is a breathable material that releases heat and moisture away from it.
For the first time, Missoni joined forces with Adidas Running, creating a line of shirts, jackets, shorts and sneakers that brings Missoni’s renowned aesthetics together with high performance materials.
Also opting for a performance wear partnership, Vivienne Westwood collaborated with ASICS on a range of five sneakers, each inspired by prints and palettes from early in Westwood’s runway career. Two of the styles are available now, and the remaining three are set to release in July.
