It seems that in 2020, fashion collaborations There have been hundreds (if not thousands) with tons of interventions by pop culture elements or incredible designers working together with some of the biggest brands in the world.
We have seen it all, however, with the rapidity of current trends, many have been quickly forgotten, while others will continue to be the topic of conversation in the future. Here we give a space to those fashion collaborations that surprised us and that we hope to see more similar in the future.
Air Dior 1
As part of this year’s Fall show for the men’s collection of Miami, Dior and Kim Jones created this perfect silhouette in conjunction with Jordan Brand call Air Jordan High OG Dior, that it was a truly brilliant limited edition, that managed to encapsulate the spirit of both houses and that perfectly complemented the rest of the collection. In a silver tone covering the original white with special details in the swoosh, in addition to the sole in a perfect aqua blue, they were the Jordan definitive of this 2020, but in general all the garments are the best we saw in the year.
Studies x Keith Haring
A tribute collaboration, since this collection launched by the French brand Studies there is only the spirit and the works left behind by the American artist who died of complications related to the PAGE. His art, a representation of humanity through movement and his recognized silhouettes fit perfectly into the garments of the house, without being used too excessively, letting each one shine on its own. The elements undoubtedly take on a broader sense in terms of movement and identity. A legacy that certainly deserves to be honored.
Nike x Stüssy
Air Force 1 x Stüssy Triple Black
Nike had quite a few collaborations this year, and while some were quickly forgotten, we remain fascinated by the work they delivered with Stüssy in a reinvention of Air Force 1 with a perfect embroidery that covers the entire tennis giving it a truly unique look and ideal for more than casual looks. It is the most ideal point that we have seen between minimalism and a future point. In fact, nothing less was expected from a collaboration that had already seen excellent silhouettes in the past but this is something unique that we are sure they will have to repeat in the future.
New Balance y Jaden Smith

The musician and actor son of Will Smith he joined to New Balance in an unexpected collaboration that resulted in one of the most interesting tennis silhouettes we’ve seen, leading to New Balance to a point of the future with a design that speaks volumes of the young designer’s millennial influence. An XL sole that ideally complements the rest of the silhouette and the gray details that remind us of the brand were enough to make them something of the most sought after. Maybe it wasn’t for everyone, but it was a necessary launch for NB.
LV2 Louis Vuitton Squared
Something really impressive on the part of Virgil Abloh, artistic designer for menswear by Louis Vuitton for two years, who launched this collaboration in conjunction with Nigo, the Japanese fashion icon (besides being the creator of A Bathing Ape), in which we really see a different side of the house with perfect garments taking liberties with some of the most recognized characteristics of the house, but achieving something unique that in turn remains close to the spirit of LV.
