The latest iterations of Virgil Abloh’s iconic Nike Blazer come in the form of the “Spooky Pack.” Just in time for Halloween, the pack sees the sneaker wrapped in an “All Hallows Eve” and “Grim Reaper” colorways. The first colorway features an off-white upper with bright orange detailing, while the second comes in a primarily black upper. Both sneakers then feature a range of signature Abloh design touches.
As summer comes to a close, take a look back through our lens as we recap Paris Fashion Week, Lollapalooza, a trip to Tokyo and more in the 17th episode of our Neon & Nonsense series.
In Paris, we were able to catch the runway debut of Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton, along with shows and showrooms from Off-White, Warren Lotas, Undercover, Sacai and more. With no shortage of summer concerts, we caught Drake, Pusha T, Valee, and G-Eazy at their respective tours and followed Virgil Abloh, Travis Scott and more at Lollapalooza. To cap it all off, trips to Japan and Italy provided great footage and even better scenery.

Military garment design has been influencing fashion at an increasing rate over the years. Classic renditions of flight suits, MA-1 Jackets, and bombers from early Raf Simons and Maison Margiela collections are some of the most sought after pieces to date. In the ever-evolving landscape of fashion, designers continue to push boundaries and offer up new renditions of classic military pieces.
Many are doing this in a literal sense, as brands are taking vintage military garments, repurposing, and rebranding them to be “new.” Others are only pulling inspiration from the silhouettes, and modernizing them with slim fits, prints, and different fabrics. Readymade has done a bit of both; they take old military canvas from duffel bags, tents, etc., and repurpose them into new flight jackets, bombers, overnight bags, and novelty items.
The inspiration is unsurprising, as the military plays a significant role in the contemporary era. OAMC realized this in their latest collection and decided to juxtapose the narrative of their collection with the violent history of the military. Replacing bombs with olive branches, a symbol of peace, and incorporating doves into their designs, they attempt to soften the harsh realities that come with militaristic endeavors.
