Valentine’s Day is all about pairing up — so with that in mind, check out these three cool collabs we have our eyes on.
• J.Crew joins forces with an athletic brand and a street artist to roll out two new lines. The first, in collaboration with New Balance (above), is a collection of activewear with fun, charming patterns — think star-printed crop tops ($70), striped capris ($75) and old-school windbreakers ($120). The second, with Michael de Feo (better known as @theflower guy), boasts a trio of T-shirts (starting at $39.50) inspired by his cheery bouquet art. 900 N. Michigan Ave; Jcrew.com
• The “young, scrappy and hungry” original “Hamilton” cast member Jasmine Cephas Jones teamed up with Lou & Grey to create an online exclusive, limited-edition collection of vintage T-shirts (starting at $45), sweatshirts ($70) and necklaces ($185) with personally meaningful phrases. The 14-karat gold necklaces by Brooklyn-based designer Winden feature sayings like “groove” and “original.” Louandgrey.com
• Show your Chicago pride with a game day look from Forever 21’s collaboration with the NBA, launching next month. The capsule collection will feature Chicago Bulls tees, mesh tanks, shorts and windbreakers for guys and girls. Starting at $15.90, locations citywide; Forever21.com
