I am a little fatigued with all of the collaborations occurring this fall because I can't seem to catch up. I'm just fucking with you, of course I can comprehensively follow every collaboration being created. But really, slow the fuck down.
We have Converse x Margiela being released on the controversial date of 9/11. Then there's Superga x Man Repeller, because, why the fuck not. We can slowly move to goth ninja/sport ninja or what have you with Adidas x Rick Owens. And for all us lovely Canucks with a deep following to Hudson's Bay Company, they are doing having a marriage with Jack Purcell.
I seriously can't purchase ALL of these sneakers. I have to pay rent and my phone bill and if I had a pet that pet would need to be fed. Like I previously said, it's all kind of overwhelming, but not. Okay, if I had to purchase one collaboration out of all of these with would probably be between Superga and Converse. Now, rumour has it that the Converse marriage is ranging at $200 US and Superga at $150 US. You know how I pick my battles - I wait for a sale.
What my real concern is that why do collaborations for men only involve the sneaker variety? I would thoroughly enjoy a toque collection designed by Alexander McQueen for Uniqlo. That's idealistic and I feel Sarah Burton wouldn't agree to such a thing. Why not a underwear collaboration between Calvin Klein and Erdem. Imagine. Floral on floral on shit stains.
