Since exploding on the hip-hop scene in the early 1990s, the Wu-Tang Clan has made it very clear that its members love Clarks Wallabees. And this weekend, fans of both the collective and the brand have a collab to pick up, sold exclusively at Barneys.
Arriving tomorrow at the Barneys doors in New York and Los Angeles, as well as online at Barneys.com, is a pair of Clarks Wallabee colorways in collaboration with Wu Wear, the Wu-Tang Clan-inspired apparel label. Group members Robert “Rza” Diggs and Oliver “Power” Grant, in conjunction with Live Nation Merchandise, resurrected the once-burgeoning brand in 2017.
One look is black-on-black suede, and the other is maple suede. Both iterations boast the classic Wu Wear logo and come with a $190 price tag.
The latest release is the next thedropLA@barneys initiative, which is an immersive experience with more than 20 exclusive capsule collections, product drops, designer appearances, experiential installations and more with prominent names in fashion and entertainment. (Peter Verry)
