3 BEST NEW DROPS OF MARCH
By Steven Potter, 11 March 2019
It’s March, which means it’s almost spring – but before you tackle that big clean, there are three new drops on ASOS you might want to take a look at first. Expect bold 90s realness from Italian sportswear label Diadora, reworked denim from Levi’s and premium streetwear from AAPE By A Bathing Ape.
It’s Levi’s, but not as you know it. When the denim stalwart released its first Engineered range back in 1999, it pioneered the ‘twisted seam’, an ergonomic stitching style that allowed for more movement. The collection of non-traditional fits and bold styling techniques quickly became a comfy favourite – and 20 years later, it's back, twisted seam and all, across slim and tapered cuts, with reworks of the iconic trucker jacket, too. Jeanius.
With the unstoppable 90s influence charging through another season, what better way to represent than with a bona fide late-20th-century favourite: Diadora. Born in 1948, the Italian brand was overhauled in 2010 and since then has been tapping into the demand for heritage brands offering throwback styles with colour-drenched aplomb. Just peep this latest drop of colour-block tracksuits and logo tees with extra 90s-theme taping. If you're feeling a burst of colour is just what your spring 'fit needs, you can't go wrong with a punchy tracksuit-and-tee combination.
Hypebeasts rejoice – a new crop of apparel and accessories from AAPE By A Bathing Ape has just dropped. A line within the streetwear superpower that is A Bathing Ape, AAPE draws on the same considered graphic use and logo-heavy design as its sibling brand. For adding a little streetwear heritage to your getup, you can’t go wrong with one of the label's printed tees, especially with that iconic logo. AAPE's March drop also includes camo trousers and accessories with more than a touch of over-branded 90s influence. Nice.
