Marine Serre Spring/Summer '19
If you haven’t yet heard of Marine Serre, we’ll cut you some slack. But here’s why you should. Having done time at hallowed houses like Maison Margiela, Alexander McQueen and Balenciaga, the French designer came into her own — quite quickly — after clinching the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers in 2017 with an incredibly individualistic collection. She’d stitched hints of athleisure together with the familiar femininity of women’s ready-to-wear, combined with the experimental eccentricities of the avant-garde. No easy feat, and an M.O. she’s stuck to (and, taken further) now four collections in.   Since Serre’s debut, the crescent motif has become a marker — often utilised as an all-over print on garments and accessories or, singularly, like a logo — of her brand. S/S ’19’s no different. Pick apart any of her ensembles and you’ll get her oft-used base layer, a crescent-print high-neck top, that has as much contemporary style cred as it is wearable. Looking for something a little more elevated? Give the tailoring or patchwork scarf dresses a whirl. Now available. Adidas by Raf Simons RS Detroit High sneakers
Introducing the high-cut version of his RS Detroit Runner in collaboration with the three stripes for the first time, the Belgian designer gets more real estate to muck around with on the RS Detroit High — seeing his signature portrait-driven designs meet the utilitarian-style kick. Having previously worked with images from the likes of photographer Robert Mapplethorpe for portrait-printed shirts and, turning out present-day grails in the process, the woman (and the source of the photo) on his Adidas sneaker is however, anonymous. Available from 24 January in store and online.  Adidas by Raf Simons RS Detriot High sneakers

Thom Browne Spring/Summer '19
Don’t let the often seen Thom Browne uniform — that slim-fit, impeccable grey suit, and the sweatshirts and joggers — fool you. Browne has a penchant for the fantastical — just ask anyone who’s been to one of his runway shows. Like the eccentric and elaborate show sets he’s known for, his ready-to-wear is quite cleverly deconstructed in terms of both their concept and, the actual resulting garment. The S/S ’19 collection, with its rich fabric textures, prints and hues, is incredibly fun to dress up in to say the least. Now available.     Converse x Golf le Fleur*
Fans of Converse’s Tyler, the Creator tie-up will know that the rapper’s Golf le Fleur* sneakers have since grown beyond its distinctive poppy colourways and suede uppers. Following a burlap iteration last November, the next drop sates fans of the 3M trend; its flower motif is fashioned from the reflective fabric and backdropped by a silver leather upper, complete with an orange and white floral outsole. Apart from the sneakers, the collab’s silver, quilted bomber jacket featuring a logo-printed back will also be made available for purchase in Singapore. Available from 12 January.  Converse x Golf le Fleur* 3M sneakers

Martine Rose x Nike collaboration
The London-based designer’s conceptual approach to Nike’s Monarch sneaker is what makes this collaboration a collector’s must-have. The design is a result of Rose initially putting a size 18 upper on a size 9 midsole, creating the bulgy, distorted silhouette you see — an intriguing dimension for the otherwise nondescript dadcore kick. More colourways plus Martine Rose x Nike clothing in the following slides. Available from 12 January.  Martine Rose x Nike collaboration

Maison Margiela Tabi boots (DSM exclusive)

Comme des Garcons Homme Plus x Nike Air Presto Foot Tent
First seen on the Comme des Garcons Homme Plus S/S ’19 runway last June, the season’s Comme and Nike collab taps the latter’s Air Presto — with the conspicuous addition of a “tent” over the shoe’s front upper. Yay, or nay? Available from 12 January.  Comme des Garcons Homme Plus x Nike Air Presto Foot Tent
Nike Air Max Dia SE QS
Made just for women, DSMS’ NikeLab will receive the Air Max Dia SE sporting but of course, an Air unit, in two colourways. As far as the Air Max series goes, the shoe looks to be constructed with a lighter-than-usual upper in a material that’s typically seen on Nike models such as the Zoom Fly SP. Available from 12 January. Nike Air Max Dia SE QS
Vans x Purlicue Year of the Pig sneakers
And the Chinese New Year drops begin. Take a closer look at the soles of these collaboration Era and Sk8-Hi kicks and you’ll see the humorous phrase, ‘The Fat Year’ — in celebration of the pig zodiac. Available from 12 January.  Vans x Purlicue Year of the Pig sneakers
