LDN’s legendary sneakerhead destination, Footpatrol, cement their friendship with the NYC streetwear crew and fellow sneakerhead store, ALIFE, in a capsule collection scheduled to hit their respective addresses in the coming days. Born out of mutual respect, the capsule is the second official “product” from the two, following Footpatrol’s co-hosting of the first ALIFE Session party outside of New York last year with Wu-Tang’s Raekwon.
Pieces focus on stark monochrome with only ALIFE’s signature red box injecting the color. Comprising three accessories and eight pieces of apparel including tees, hoodies, crewneck sweats and a jacket, each piece references the grime, the streets, the alleyways and the overall mutually similar aesthetic of the two stores’ neighborhoods.
Case in point: the “Alley Tee,” which features the backstreets of Soho, London; or the mechanics “Grime Lord” jacket with both logos embroidered on front and back.
Keep an eye on Footpatrol‘s blog for news on the collection’s release date. Pieces range from £3 to £90 ($4.50 to $136 USD).
