ESSENTIALS x Union 30th Anniversary Collab, Release Date
Release Date: August 9
Buy: Union LA
Editor’s Notes: It’s been a hell of a year for Union. The stalwart retailer is living up to its name with a slew of commemorative collaborations for its 30th anniversary, uniting with peers like NOAH and Stüssy. The year’s far from over and it’s now time for Fear of God‘s ESSENTIALS sub-label to join the party.
ESSENTIALS has lived up to its name the past couple years, to say the least. Even before its Fall/Winter 2021 collection launched this month, ESSENTIALS’ branded goods have proven to be pretty essential for even more casual FoG fans.
Something about those boxy cuts and easy silhouettes just makes the ESSENTIALS hoodies and tees a natural fit for basically every wardrobe. Essentials’ Union collaboration leans hard into that approachability, eschewing the more advanced knitwear and work shirts for classic loungewear.
For this celebratory drop, ESSENTIALS has blessed Union with some new takes on its signature athleisure items. Hoodies, T-shirts, sweatpants, pants, and a matching cap are all here, finished with glossy co-branding and a bit of tie-dye.
This marks ESSENTIALS’ first time doing tie-dye, interestingly, and its red, pink, and white swirls are surprisingly vivid for the basics-minded brand. It’s a suitable stand-in for fireworks in honor of Union’s 30th anniversary, as flashy as anything ESSENTIALS has ever cooked up. Of course, faded black and army green iterations are also on hand, but the more colorful sets feel like a true union of shared ideals.
