The concept of brand collaborations has become a thing in the last few years. From Adidas and Gucci, to Tom Sachs and Nike, there are more collaborations across all industries, from high street brands to luxury brands. As we step into June, let’s take a look at some of the hottest collaborations that are worth the splurge.
MAC x Stranger Things
Welcoming the release of the new season of Stranger Things, MAC cosmetics launched a special Stranger Things collection – collectable products to transform you from the human world to the Upside-Down or the halls of Hawkins High.
Bringing the Netflix show’s spooky and fun ’80s vibe to 2022, join the class of ’86 or take an extra-eerie trip with this contrasting collection of subtle and statement hues inspired by the show. Featuring some of their hero products including the studio fix, shimmer eyeshadow palette, blush, brushes, lip gloss and more, all of which have fun names inspired by characters and places in the show.

Tom Sachs Nike Craft Sneaker
Launching on June 10, the Tom Sachs X Nike Craft Sneaker is one of the simplest sneakers to be made. Also known as the boring sneaker, The NikeCraft General Purpose Shoe (GPS) is a do-everything shoe created for every possible scenario.
This special association represents 10 years of partnership between Nike and Tom Sachs, a collaboration that creates new perspectives on serving the future of athletes and sport. “I got involved with Nike in the beginning because we wanted to make a sculpture that everyone could wear. It’s a tool for everyday life; it’s democratic,” says Sachs. “It took a decade to make a shoe this simple, as simple as can be and no simpler. NikeCraft shuns innovation for its own sake, but embraces it as a necessity,” he adds.
The NikeCraft GPS is available from June 10 at nikecraft.com. It retails for $109.99.
Adidas x Gucci
The all-new summer collection is set to drop on June 7. Adidas’s trademark three white stripes complemented Gucci’s signature red and green, as did the interlocking of the two logos. Think rigorous tailoring plus vintage and club culture dresses with sports branding. From sporty-inspired clothing to bags and footwear, this is a summery vision for men and women, which taps into an athletic vibe, albeit Guccified. Bold colours and geometric branding characterises the collection.
Micheal Kors x Ellesse
Michael Kors has teamed up with Italian sportswear brand Ellesse to produce a summer capsule for tennis. The 24-piece collection is a sports-inspired collection celebrating beloved athletic styles of the ’70s. Offering a modern reinterpretation of luxe athleisure, the capsule collection reinvents lifestyle essentials that evokes confidence, attitude and understated ease.
