Sometimes even our most trusted designers, tired of working alone to execute their singular stylish vision, must put down their sketchpads, look themselves in the mirror, and repeat the immortal words of Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock: It takes two to make a thing go right; it takes two to make it out of sight. And we should all salute them for that.

2016 saw no shortage of notable collaborations between brands and designers we love, from the usual suspects at Supreme and Opening Ceremony finding worthy counterparts in Black Sabbath and Vans, to the unstoppable juggernaut that is Rihanna x Puma. These are the best from the past six months. Somewhere, Rob and E-Z are smiling.
