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

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....

WOOYOUNGMI FOR MR PORTER

WOOYOUNGMI FOR MR PORTER

Online retailers seem to be the only ones surprising us with original initiatives. After its last collaboration with Hentsch Man a few weeks ago, Mr Porter just released a capsule collection with Wooyoungmi. As always with the South Korean brand, the collection is clean, sharp and features elegant color or pattern contrasts. Discover it below.
SHOPPING: ONIA SS14

SHOPPING: ONIA SS14

Looking for the perfect swim trunk? Onia’s got you covered. Why? First, their best seller, the Calder, based on a classic chino, is completely effortless and super comfortable thanks to its nylon/polyester (or cotton) fabric mix and its superfine mesh lining. Then, it’s available in 3 lengths, 5, 7.5 or 10 inches thus a good choice for...

SHOPPING: Y-3 SNEAKERS

SHOPPING: Y-3 SNEAKERS

Monsieur Yohji Yamamoto said a few months ago that Y-3 would become even better and stronger in the coming months. Looking at the recent releases, I couldn’t agree more. The Spring Summer sneaker collection is one of the most inspirational of the season. While everybody is obsessing with slip-ons, Adidas and the Y-3 creative team have emphasized what...
