When it comes to industry news, fashion collabs seem to be the hot topics of the moment, with new ones released seemingly every day, whether its fancy footwear or Bridgerton-inspired Regencycore partnerships. Now a whole host of designers and creatives are partnering up for spring, offering imaginative pieces for the new season, from Ganni teaming up with Juicy Couture to Stella McCartney overhauling Arsenal’s football kit. Here we’ve rounded up the key new fashion collabs to know about this season.

Collabs for Spring 2022
Adidas x Gucci
Hot on the heels of the much-lauded Hacker Project collaboration with Balenciaga, Gucci’s Alessandro Michele has unveiled a new partnership, this time with Adidas. The sportswear behemoth has lent its signature three stripes and trefoil logo to Gucci’s runway-ready looks, adorning everything from berets and corsets to double breasted suits and knitwear.
The collection looks set to subvert the notions of what sports luxe means for the next generation – at Milan Fashion Week an Adidas-stamped version of Gucci’s iconic Diana tote was sent down the catwalk, followed by a whimsical prairie dress and a full-on logoed bridal look.
Lanvin x Gallery Dept
Following on from the success of their first collaboration, French maison Lanvin and enigmatic street style label Gallery Dept. have teamed up yet again on an art-inspired capsule collection. Founded by LA-based artist Josué Thomas, Gallery Dept’s boldly urban pieces are a firm favourite among LA’s skater kids – a tribe Lanvin’s Creative Director Bruno Sialelli admits to being heavily influenced by.
The Parisian label’s sneakers, hoodies and T-shirts are brought to life with bright colours and arty touches, including paints splatters across the toes of trainers and frayed hems on acid orange jeans. The result is a collection rooted in traditional luxury with an unexpectedly modern twist.
Reebok By Pyer Moss
Cult label Pyer Moss – first founded in 2013 in a bid to create ready-to-wear pieces that build a narrative about heritage and activism – has just launched its fourth and final collaboration collection with Reebok. Entitled ‘GODIZU UIZGOD’, Pyer Moss designer Kerby Jean-Raymond drew inspiration from the concept of spirituality, combining the label’s storytelling abilities with Reebok’s industry legacy.
The unisex pieces feature psychedelic marbled prints in red, black and white, displayed across slip dresses, stirrup leggings and technical puffers. There are also cropped rollneck tops, logo-detailed socks and streamlined windbreakers, but the real talking points are the newly launched Experiment G trainers, a gloriously futuristic update featuring a multicoloured zigzag design.
Ganni x Juicy Couture
The Noughties passion for velour tracksuits is back with a vengeance, thanks to a new collaboration between Scandi-cool brand Ganni and Los Angeles staple Juicy Couture. While the partnership may seem an unlikely one on the surface, Ganni has brought its much-lauded sustainability credentials to the Hollywood favourite, creating the most responsibly produced version of the iconic tracksuit to date.
The 13-style collection has been made with a mix of certified organic and pre-consumer recycled cotton, as well as recycled polyester. And it’s not just tracksuits, either – the Y2K-inspired collab also includes T-shirts, capes, top and leggings in certified organic and recycled materials. Throw in the intertwined Ganni and Juicy logos splashed across the pieces and this is one partnership you’re bound to find all over social media.
Adidas by Stella McCartney x Arsenal WFC
Arsenal women’s football club’s kits just got a seriously stylish redesign courtesy of Stella McCartney, showcasing the future of elite-level sportswear. Created as part of her Adidas range, the collection was designed to support a new generation of sport, championing the team’s historic achievements – they’re the most successful club in English women’s football – as well as looking towards their bright futures.
And bright is the operative word here. The boldly patterned 10-piece collection blends Stella’s signature leopard print with Arsenal’s iconic Mystery Blue and Scarlet Red, creating a bold and boundary-pushing new look. In keeping with McCartney’s planet-friendly ethos, each of the pieces has been made from organic cotton and recycled materials, in a nod to the collaboration’s ambition to eliminate plastic waste.
Burberry x Supreme
What do you get when you cross a heritage British brand with one of streetwear’s most sought-after labels? A capsule collection that combines Burberry’s instantly-recognisable silhouettes with Supreme’s effortless cool. Unsurprisingly, the stylish collab sold out in record time when it first launched.
Included in the drop you’ll find a matching denim jacket and trousers in Burberry’s signature check pattern, with both brands’ logos emblazoned across the back, as well as trench coats, T-shirts and hoodies. Also available are a selection of fun accessories including caps, funnel-neck jackets, skateboards and a silk pyjama set.
