Alpha Industries Just Will Not Stop With the Collabs

This is a good thing though. We promise.

As we previously (and very recently) reported in a piece on their recent mashup with New Balance, Alpha Industries loves them a collab — the dedicated page on the Alpha site is almost never without a featured collection in partnership with one entity or another, often with multiple capsules featured simultaneously. And if the above sentence makes it seem like your correspondent is in any way tired of them (this publication is well aware of the concept of collab fatigue), allow me to disabuse you, dear reader, of that notion. Alpha’s newest capsule, another in partnership with AAPE (the diffusion line of Nigo’s iconic streetwear brand A Bathing Ape), once again highlights their ability to pick (or, in this case, go back to) a quality dance partner and cut a stylish rug.

Similar to the New Balance collection, Alpha lends their signature military-inspired silhouettes and hues (along with their famously durable construction) to the proceedings and then lets their partner cook with the details: in the jacket department, two MA-1 reversible bomber jackets feature contrasting camouflage panels and Alpha x AAPE artwork (the coordinates for “Somewhere in the AAPE Universe” are a nice touch), and a “mixed media” hooded jacket boasts a smart tonal mix of quilted nylon and sherpa fleece.

The accompanying “mixed media” hoodie is comprised of contrasting zippered panels that can be deconstructed to yield a crewneck vest, while the quilted pant (in your correspondent’s humble opinion the star of the collection) also features a contrast camo panel as well as the AAPE logo deftly stitched into the quilting. Basically a stylish bomber jacket for your legs, and I’m personally very much here for that.

History dictates that it won’t be long before we’re telling you about the next Alpha Industries collab, let’s just hope they can keep the hot streak going.
