Finally, ComplexCon is just days away. While you may be busy plotting out your best fits or scheduling out what panels and performances you should attend, it’s important to also plan out what merch you should cop before anything else. ComplexCon has always been known for releasing some of the biggest drops of the year. This weekend, one should expect nothing less when it comes to the brands featured this year.
Verdy’s presence as the host of ComplexCon will be felt throughout the numerous collaborations being released by vendors this year. Los Angeles-based labels like Union will be repping their city proper through collaborations with brands like Fear of God and Kendrick Lamar’s pgLang. High fashion labels like Post Archive Faction, a Korean label shortlisted as a LVMH Prize Semifinalist last year, will even be releasing high-end wares at the event. Naturally, a number of Japanese labels will be well represented at the event this weekend. One of the biggest Japanese brands to arrive at ComplexCon this year is Jun Takahashi’s Undercover, which is set to drop special collaborative apparel with Verdy only at ComplexCon this weekend.
Check out details on where to cop all these big drops, and others from brands like Billionaire Boys Club/Icecream, Tombogo, and Vandy the Pink, below. Be sure to also check out the full list of brands at ComplexCon here.
