AWGE x NEEDLES Third Collaboration: Release Date, Info


Buy: SSENSE, DOMICILE Tokyo, and NEPENTHES from August 21.

The track jacket is ¥31,900 (approximately $290), the pants are ¥27,500 (approximately $250), the work jacket is ¥57,200 (approximately $520), and the zip-off BDU pants are ¥35,200 (approximately $320).

Editor’s Notes: You can’t keep A$AP Rocky and NEEDLES apart for too long. The duo have united for the third time to again bring to life AWGE‘s love for the Japanese brand’s signature tracksuits. But, wait, that’s not all! For the first time, the pair have moved beyond the sporty set to explore some functional favorites.

Still, at the core of AWGE and NEEDLES’ latest collaborative drop is that inimitable track jacket and pants, seen here with large rainbow-hued sidelines. However, AWGE takes things a step further by wholly reshaping the garments at the core of the capsule, making the jacket slouchier and the track pants wider, complete with inseam zippers for a customizable fit.

The track gear could’ve been the entirety of this release, but it wasn’t enough for AWGE. Instead, the label is going a step further by reaching deeper into NEEDLES oeuvre for something a little more adventurous.

Yep, alongside the cream or grey-toned tracksuits, behold a trifecta of reworked workwear staples, comprising yet another jacket and pant set laden with that co-branded butterfly logo.

Up top, there’s a flip of the classic waist-length uniform jacket, complete with angled welt pockets, a patch pocket at the chest, plaid lining, and a zipper pull in the shape of NEEDLES’ butterfly logo.

Below, witness the convertible cargo pant, realized with more glossy sidelines and zip-off paneling that allows the wearer to turn the trousers into shorts, executed in the same khaki, blue, and black shades as its layering piece.
