alife collabs used to be some of the best back in the day. They don’t seem to be as often these days, or maybe I’m just not as in tune with the brand as I used to be, but this collection takes me back to some of the classic alife Rivington Club (ARC) collaborations. A strong use of the ARC diamonds features throughout, put to best use as a polka pattern. Parts of the collection are classic streetwear, nothing too crazy, while others are brilliantly loud, namely the joggers. It’s great to see joggers making a solid come back in collaborations recently and alife have killed it with these half polka ones.
As for footwear, it looks like we can expect to see a Suede and an R698. We’ll take a closer look at those soon. Apparently, this is the first of at least 2 drops, but we don’t know exactly how long the partnership has been set for.
