SHOPPING: ACNE STUDIOS EYEWEAR

After years of producing sunnies occasionally, Acne Studios just launched its first full collection. The series revisits three great pivotal periods in the eyewear history with first the 30s with a few Art Deco styles, the psychedelic 60s and then the extravagant 70s with some very Emmanuelle Khanh inspired styles and also some classic Aviators.  The collection will...

NOW: SIKI IM SS15

So New York is finally getting its own Men’s Fashion Week with a first edition coming this July (13-16). While the timing (two weeks after Paris Men’s Fashion Week ends) and the first participants are mostly commercial, I couldn’t be happier to see designer like Siki Im taking part of it. Siki’s aesthetic is quite unique in the American landscape. Unlike...

SHOPPING: LACOSTE L!VE VINTAGE AD COLLECTION

This is such a brilliant idea: celebrating Lacoste fabulous ads from 70s with a series of printed polo shirts, t-shirt and sweatshirts. The result is a playful collection mixing perfectly the charm of the nostalgia with a contemporary touch. The collection drops April 20th.
SHOPPING: GARRETT LEIGHT SS15

SHOPPING: GARRETT LEIGHT SS15

The Garrett Leight collection is all about retro glamour and Hollywood royalty. The design, as always, is elegant taking cues from vintage styles but with a contemporary note. New hues have been introduced with a series of delicate pastels (pink, lemon, mint). You will find also some rich earthy tones (brown, dark green), that I personally...
SHOPPING: FJÄLLRÄVEN SS15

SHOPPING: FJÄLLRÄVEN SS15

I’m really loving the new Fjällräven collection. After seeing all these utilitarian and outdoorsy inspired jackets (Patrik Ervell recently), it felt natural to come back to the original “adventure” style. These four models – anorak, jacket, lite jacket, trekking jacket – offer different features (materials, fits, length) and functionalities. Their designs successfully embody a cool mix between urban and outdoor...

SHOPPING: LONDON DESIGNERS

You certainly know by now how much I love London: Collections Men. While being the youngest of the Fashion Week circus, London encompasses a dynamic and consequent array of young successful designers including Astrid Andersen, Nasir Mazhar, Craig Green, KTZ, J.W. Anderson, just to name a few. To celebrate this new season, I’ve picked five designers from...

SHOPPING: JUUN J x ADIDAS

Juun J teamed with Adidas to celebrate its classic Superstar style. While I’m not particular fan of this lackluster celebration (besides the Adidas Consortium x DMOP Superstar model), these two minimalist reinterpretations (hight-top and low-top) are just perfect with the three Velcro replacing the original stripes and the updated silhouettes. Check them out below. Leather high-top trainers Shop them...

STYLE: MIKKO

Mikko was one of my first Instagram’s favorites 2 years ago. He was also one of the first guys with consistent and bold looks (not the J. Crew’s ersatz we can see everywhere). Since we live thousand miles apart, Mikko kindly sent me his latest photo shoot made with his friend Andre Pozusis. Discover four of this...

Born in 1967, Jiraiya started his actual career in his early 30’s after working for several years as a graphic designer. Growing up in rural Japan in the 70s, sumo...

NOW: ASSK SS15

NOW: ASSK SS15

Social comment is a crucial part of Paris based label ASSK. After exploring Doomsday last winter, the new collection is focusing on video surveillance, internet, glitches and all sort of visual collaterals. Agatha and Sarah, the duo behind ASSK, used this time patchworks of pictures or stretched pixels to create visual landscapes and question our places between reality...

SHOPPING: PATRIK ERVELL SS15

Patrik Ervell’s obsession for minimalism and textures reached a new level with his Spring Summer collection all inspired by industrial materials and interior design. The collection questions the notion of wearability when trespassing the frontier between industrial and fashion, furniture and clothes. The codes are all inverted, defining new parameters and transforming the body as a home....

SHOPPING: ACNE STUDIO SS15

What makes Acne Studio so special? Well, forget about the hype, the trendy imagery and the lovely packaging. Acne Studios is the most “realist” contemporary brand that I’ve ever bought. Everything is well-thought-out from the fabric choices, the fit to the price range. You feel tempted, flattered and obliged to get it. Acne epitomizes also very well this Nordic charm, a savant mix of coldness...
