Grand Collection

Grand Collection, founded by Ben Oleynik, is a NYC-based skate brand that consistently releases some of the most elevated but wearable pieces in the skate scene right now. Oleynik has a keen eye for taking silhouettes and pieces that are comfortable for skaters, and then giving them an aesthetic upgrade through the use of nostalgic or semi-unorthodox materials. Just last week, Grand held its first ever runway show to coincide with the brand's fourth annual food drive. In celebration of Grand's runway debut, I went through some of the pieces from the collection and selected my favorites.

Grand Collection Winter '22

1. Velour Collared Sweatshirt in Powder Blue

This is the standout of the collection in my opinion. A beautiful color paired with a glistening velour makes for a versatile shirt that would be equally appropriate at the skatepark or a night out.

2. Velour Pant in Navy

When I first saw these pants in person, I was immediately drawn to the quality of the velour. It's a material historically donned by an older demographic, but revitalized in this silhouette with the Grand logo and side seam, they become a luxurious take on sweats.

3. Harrington Jacket in Light Grey

This Harrington jacket is another great example of a timeless piece that can be styled in endless ways. Getting dressed doesn't need to be hard.

4. Nylon Jacket in Forest/Cream

When I think of Grand, this is the jacket I picture—partially because I always see Ben out here rocking countless epic nylon tracksuits. This is the epitome of the brand; these are classic styles that harken back to the 90s, but with a silhouette and color that settles them perfectly into 2022.

5. Velour Short in Powder Blue

It's clear I like the velour stuff. These shorts perfectly encapsulate an even more distant nostalgia for the 70s, when short velour shorts were a staple of not only loungewear but going out on the town as well. The color of this velour is just so unbelievably cool.
