Each week, our inbox runneth over with news of gear, apparel and tech releases from around the world. In this feature, we’ll parse through the best of them. Today: a Supreme x Nabisco collab, gym shorts for the film dorks and lots of spring collections.

OP Aspen

This stylish pair of ski goggles from Oliver Peoples combines some forward-thinking technology with vintage designs. The OP Aspen includes interchangeable lenses – one mirror lens for sunny days and one yellow lens for cloudy and snowy days, a custom-designed strap and it’s offered in two colorways.

Uniqlo x Christophe Lemaire

Uniqlo’s latest collection with French designer Christophe Lemaire (formerly the creative director of Hermès) mirrors the artistic vision for his namesake brand, only more accessible. For spring and summer, the color palette remains largely neutral, with the occasional muted purple or burnt orange. The clothes themselves are relaxed and breezy — loose hanging shirts that drape rather than slouch, slightly oversized chore and denim jackets that allow for breathability without drowning the wearer in excess fabric. They’re the kind of easy, timeless pieces ideal for spring and summer. And the best part is, their prices are no different from Uniqlo’s other goods. It’s like buying designer without having to pay the price.

Supreme x Oreos

Supreme recently unveiled their spring/summer 2020 collection, which includes jackets, accessories and a hologram of Tupac Shakur. Among the Supreme-branded binoculars and lawn chairs is an unlikely collab between the brand and everyone’s favorite cream-filled cookie. The red-dyed Oreos branded with the Supreme label were originally sold in packs of three for a price of $8, but it was discovered by the New York Post, Supreme x Oreo is on the secondary market for a small sum of $15,000.

Filson Coldfoot Collection

Named after a 19th-century prospecting camp (and the prospectors who didn’t get “cold feet”), Coldfoot marks a collaboration and a pretty obvious synergy between the Seattle brands C.C. Filson Co. and Westland Distillery. So what happens you combine the gurus behind outdoor gear and whiskey? You get what you’d expect – some loosely outdoor-themed shirts, hoodies, caps and shot glasses, along with an American Single Malt with tasting notes of dried apple, walnuts, waffles (!) and whipped cream.

Unisex Cloud Authentic Original Suede Tassel Loafer

Sperry’s Authentic Originals, aka the “boat shoe,” has been reconstructed with some new colors and materials to keep things not so uninformed frat boy. These AO’s are still made with the brand’s classic hand-sewn moccasin construction but feature a hairy suede outer and some colorful tassels to keep things interesting.

Simple Use Film Camera LomoChrome Metropolis

Hey did you hear? Disposable cameras are back. And if you’re looking to stand out a bit amongst the Kodaks and Fujis, consider showing up the teens with this disposable from Lomography. Unlike an ordinary disposable, the LomoChrome comes with preloaded films and Color Gel flash filters so you can take some filtered film photos without having to edit them later.

Entireworld Spring Collection

We’ve raved numerous times about the brand Entireworld, and we’re not ashamed to do it again, especially now that their new spring styles have arrived. The spring collection features some classics like their Organic Cotton Boxy T, now rendered in new colors like hot pink, but there are also some altogether new styles, like the Organic Cotton Long Sleeve Polo. If your basics are starting to feel a little too basic, switch it up with some unexpected colors. You’ll still look classic, just more fun.

A24 Gym Shorts

For no apparent reason, independent production company A24 has released a pair of mesh gym shorts, because why not? The shorts are a standard black pair that feature the company’s now ubiquitous logo along the sides and come in unisex sizing, perfect if you and you’re significant other are film enthusiasts and wanna share a pair. Like the rest of their merch, the shorts are pretty understated so only true A24 heads are likely to notice them. Go ahead you show people you’re down to ball, but also watch Uncut Gems.

Lululemon Switch Over Bomber

Reversible jackets are like zip-off pants, they promise an exciting world of sartorial versatility, but one version looks goofy as hell so you keep the pant legs zipped on and the jacket right side out. Lululemon seems to have broken the wheel with the Switch Over Bomber, offering a traditional, sleek side and and a sportier, quilted side. It’s insulated, water-resistant and layerable, so you’ll find yourself reaching for this year-round.

The Court Sneaker

For their second shot at making a sneaker, Everlane kept the upper in full-grain leather, the virgin plastic to a minimum and the carbon emissions offset 100 percent. So what’s different? Infinitely better color options and a more universal silhouette that might just steal some thunder from other premium sneaker brands like Greats and Common Projects.

Corridor Spring/Summer Collection

For Corridor’s Spring/Summer collection, the brand has really leaned into the Americana theme, as evidenced by the Western influences. The most conspicuous display of the Western inspiration comes in the form of the Cowboy Dan shirt, patterned with tiny figures of horse riding cowboys (because what’s more American than a cowboy?), reminiscent of an old school children’s wallpaper. Then you have the Western shirts, in Summer Acid Plaid or Embroidered Chambray, affixed with the necessary cowboy snaps. And in a more subtle interpretation of the Wild West are button downs in Teal and Summer Retro madras — authentic madras that’ll put all your merely plaid shirts to shame. All we have to say is giddy up, cowboy.
