Arbitrage NYC to release final Dolce & Gabbana Collection with Grailed
After 7 capsule collections featuring the likes of Helmut Lang, Rick Owens, and Maison Margiela, Arbitrage NYC will be releasing its final Archive Capsule Collection featuring the futuristic military inspired creations from Dolce & Gabbana this Friday, February 23rd. This capsule will include over 40 pieces from past collections ranging from AW 1999 to SS 2008 but will focus primarily on pieces from Dolce & Gabbana’s iconic AW 2003 Collection. AW 2003 drew heavily from military and futuristic inspirations, as well as techno and punk subcultures. Bondage and S&M-inspired design were already trending in menswear by the release of the AW 2003 collection, but Dolce & Gabbana further exaggerated the style by infusing their trademark hyper-masculinity and military themes.
The stand-out pieces in the collection include the much-hyped AW 2003 Nylon Bondage Bomber, the AW 2003 Reconstructed Military Trousers, and the AW 2007 Mesh Bomber. The Bondage Bomber features a body made from padded nylon and leather panels, nylon webbing bondage straps and an oversized storm hood. The Reconstructed trousers are made from repurposed military surplus and recovered vintage HBT materials. Finally, the Mesh Bomber is made from a double layer heavyweight mesh fabric and features moto detailing and chrome buckles throughout.
While this Dolce & Gabbana Capsule will be their last shoppable collection for the foreseeable future, Arbitrage NYC won’t be going anywhere. After this collection wraps, Arbitrage will be shifting focus to curating a varied selection of archive designer and vintage designs available to rent and sharing this extensive archive on their Instagram and arbitragenyc.com.
