SHOPPING: FJALLRAVEN GREENLAND BACKPACK

SHOPPING: FJALLRAVEN GREENLAND BACKPACK

The Fjällräven backpack family just got a new addiction called the Greenland. Available in two sizes (the large one comes external pockets) and made using the classic and heavy duty G-1000 fabric, the Greenland comes in five different shades (black, charcoal, blue, ochre and the green). I’ve been using the large version since two weeks and I’m totally...

SHOPPING: LACOSTE L!VE FW14

Lacoste L!VE brings us back to 1999, before our advanced digital age when visual glitches, pixels and primary colors were considered Art. All these elements are part of a very colorful, urban and almost normcore-ish collection. Check out my favorite pieces below. Polo shirts and tees Sweaters Lookbook
SHOPPING: LA MEMORY BY VEJA

SHOPPING: LA MEMORY BY VEJA

French fair trade sneaker brand Veja just launched their new sneakers called La Memory. The goal here was to create a perfect balance between style and technology mixing a classic chukka with their in-house sole called LRT (Liquid Rubber Technology) for maximum response and comfort. You can shop it at Kith NY or Centre Commercial in Paris.

SHOPPING: RAF SIMONS FOR FRED PERRY

SHOPPING: RAF SIMONS FOR FRED PERRY

This is the tenth Raf Simons’ collection for Fred Perry and it’s still looking good! While the silhouette remains the same, simple, clean and completely assuming Fred Perry’s heritage, Raf Simons gave it an streetwear twist using stripes, strong color blocking and a darker color palette. I also enjoy how this collection is for Simons another opportunity to...
SHOPPING: TOMORROWLAND FW14

SHOPPING: TOMORROWLAND FW14

Tomorrowland or the best of two worlds. You probably have never heard of this excellent Japanese brand, unless you’ve traveled to Japan where Tomorrowland just celebrated its 36th anniversary. While the brand is known for its partnerships (Acne Studios, Dries Van Noten and UMIT BENAN to name just a few), Tomorrowland has always presented a strong personal point...
SHOPPING: BERNHARD WILLHELM FOR CAMPER

SHOPPING: BERNHARD WILLHELM FOR CAMPER

While his new winter collection for Camper is slightly more concise than his previous Spring Summer delivery (exit sandals and sneakers), Bernhard Willhelm jampacked his new pieces with fun details from kama-sutra drawings, insolent messages, neon colors and clouds prints (#iwant). You can shop it here and at Opening Ceremony.

SHOPPING: Dr MARTENS - SPIRIT OF 69

SHOPPING: Dr MARTENS – SPIRIT OF 69

Subcultures are, more than anything else, defining who we are. They embrace and free your personality, regardless of your background. Dr Martens have been one of the rare supporters to continuously support subcultures from ska to grunge. The Spirit of 69 collection launching this season celebrates the radical first generation of skinheads. Dr Martens teamed up with iconic brands to...
SHOPPING: PONY - TOPSTAR

SHOPPING: PONY – TOPSTAR

Pony continues to revisit its heritage with an updated version of its Topstar in both low and high versions. I love the vintage design, directly influenced by the original style, slick and discreet. It’s also a nice reminder that a cool sneaker doesn’t have to be loud and covered up with unnecessary embellishments. Topstar Topstar...
SHOPPING: FRED PERRY TRACK JACKETS

SHOPPING: FRED PERRY TRACK JACKETS

The classic Fred Perry track jacket, once a 90’s youth culture favorite, is back in stores. The 2014 version reprises Fred Perry’s iconic “b-45” Laurel Wreath logo in the front and also a taping band featured on the sleeves. Available in black, snow white, regal, blood, classic yellow, rich navy and Alaskan blue, the collection was designed to...
STYLE: AFROPUNK FEST 2014

STYLE: AFROPUNK FEST 2014

One of the reasons why I love NY is certainly its diversity. You can’t really find a better place than the Afropunk music festival in Brooklyn to demonstrate it. Every single kind of subcultures was there, from reggae to punk. 48h of celebration, respect, sharing and dancing. I only spent few hours there, trying to capture...

Just a little video preview before the entire collection drops really soon. As always with these guys, the result is slick and elegant. You will probably spot some pieces from the preview collection…
SS15: PREVIEW

SS15: PREVIEW

It is quite a something to recap all the shows and list all the new trends (or if I may say variations since this season didn’t offer major shifts). But there are still things that I want to point out. One of them is this recurring theme “soft lines vs hard lines” seen everywhere between Paris and Milan. Tracking down...
SHOPPING: ADIDAS ORIGINALS C-10

SHOPPING: ADIDAS ORIGINALS C-10

Futuristic design is quite a thing right now, especially at Adidas. I obviously think of their Raf Simons collaboration but also with Rick Owens. The Originals series is getting another new style demonstrating a powerful reinterpretation of two Adidas classics. The new high tops, the C-10, dropping a bit later this summer (August 10th) feature design elements taken...

SHOPPING: MASSIVE x OPENING CEREMONY

My first encounter with gay manga was five years ago in Tokyo in this tiny bookstore located in Shinjuku. They had Gengoroh Tagame’s books displayed all over the room. It was only months later that I discovered Jiraiya’s work on Tumblr. I immediately adored the hyperrealism of his drawings packed with kinky but fun characters, a beautiful homage to Tom of...

NOW: CHAPTER SS14

NOW: CHAPTER SS14

Surprisingly, Chapter was created in California. What could have been a detail is actually a major element of the brand’s DNA and explains how the line works. Understatement is a key element. Each collection is constructed into parts and devoted to reveal a part of your personality. You don’t feel intimidated or like a copycat....
