INTERVIEW: VIDUR

INTERVIEW: VIDUR

The collision between streetwear, sportswear and outerwear has created a brand new world with a new set of rules. London-based label Vidur has successfully translated into a new wardrobe this area we live in. From its more classic but twisted debut to its new SS15 dropping in a few weeks, Vidur’s collections are a savvy...
INTERVIEW: NOAH WAXMAN

INTERVIEW: NOAH WAXMAN

Noah Waxman is not your regular guy and definitely not your typical shoe designer. His background, beside his love for shoes, has nothing to do with fashion. He came out as a designer a bit by accident and ever since he’s been sincerely devoted to create a beautiful and contemporary shoe. In less than two...
INTERVIEW: GRENSON

INTERVIEW: GRENSON

You rarely get to meet the people behind a brand. At most you might furtively glimpse them, yet never really engage with them. My encounter with the Grenson team, however, was everything but that. Every single person I met from the design team, from PR to commercial, was incredibly fun and delightful. I could see...
INTERVIEW: GOLDEN BEAR

INTERVIEW: GOLDEN BEAR

Rare are the brands with such an iconoclast and prestigious rooster of collaborations from Thom Browne, Union Made, Brooklyn Circus, Stussy, J Crew, Palmer Trading, Engineered Garments, Kith to Club Monaco today. What used to be a very discrete manufacturer created in 1922 in San Francisco has now emerged as an internationally acclaimed and iconic...
INTERVIEW: VEJA

INTERVIEW: VEJA

You certainly remember my previous Veja feature posted a few weeks ago introducing their new sneaker La Memory (if not go here). I was very curious about the brand, what makes it so unique and how Ghislain and Sebastien, co-founders, started this adventure. Veja is almost 10 year old now. How did it all start?...
INTERVIEW: GARRETT LEIGHT

INTERVIEW: GARRETT LEIGHT

Reinventing sunglasses is a tricky job. A lot has been done before and most of us, at least those of us addicted to them, have seen almost everything. But when it comes to offer a modern take on heritage inspired sunnies, few designers can make the cut. Garrett Leight is one who has. He first...
INTERVIEW: RALEIGH DENIM

INTERVIEW: RALEIGH DENIM

I’m not a denim hunter. Like many, I wear jeans almost everyday, shop for the best fit (depending on the style that I want to achieve) and try to get a good deal. But there is one thing that I care more about that and will encourage me to spend more, it’s the story and...
INTERVIEW: ASSK

INTERVIEW: ASSK

I’m excited to introduce Paris based label ASSK discovered during the last NYFW at the VFILES show. I was immediately intrigued by this subtle mix of 90’s aesthetic and social post-apocalypse approach and was curious to know more about the ASSK team, Agatha and Sarah. Discover them today. Tell more about a your training and how...
INTERVIEW: STROBLE

INTERVIEW: STROBLE

I’m so happy to introduce Christian Stroble’s first collection. The craftsmanship of his designs is impeccable, using premium Italian leather and making everything here in New York City. We met shortly during the last NYFW so I really felt the need to know more about his work. You already have a quite fulfilling career as a...
INTERVIEW: SMITH - WYKES

INTERVIEW: SMITH – WYKES

Smith and Wykes is a combination of two menswear traditions, utilitarian clothing and classic tailoring. Since launching their brand in 2010, Rory and Michaell have one desire, design a contemporary wardrobe. Influenced by their different heritages, their collections are slick, elegant and sometimes minimalist. I’m really happy to introduce their work properly today. Tell us...
INTERVIEW: OFFICINE GENERALE

INTERVIEW: OFFICINE GENERALE

I was first introduced to Officine Generale via a few of my Parisian friends. They were going berserk for what they called a new classic. While I was definitely seduced by the craftsmanship, I needed more time to make my own opinion. Meeting Pierre, owner of Officine Generale, during Pitti Uomo and later in Paris...
INTERVIEW: GASPARD YURKEIVICH

INTERVIEW: GASPARD YURKEIVICH

I was invited few weeks ago to curate one look for the NMKRT- AOL/STYLELIST Runway show during NYFW. Although I had plenty of options, I decided to invite Paris based brand Gaspard Yurkeivich. I’ve known the brand since a long time but never followed it regularly until I’ve met Guido, GY’s menswear designer, during Pitti...
INTERVIEW: HENTSCH MAN

INTERVIEW: HENTSCH MAN

I love how things come together sometimes. Even though I’ve never properly featured Hentsch Man on MJ, I always loved their collections. I first met Alexia, the head designer and founder, last summer during Pitti Uomo in Florence and then again, last winter, also at Pitti. So this trip to London for the London Collections:...
LCM: ALEX MATTSON X BROOKE CANDY

LCM: ALEX MATTSON X BROOKE CANDY

This is probably the most exciting collaboration of London Men’s Collection! RedBull Catwalk Studio invited Alex Mattson to collaborate with the explosive Brooke Candy for a live presentation of Alex’s new SS14 collection. I had a little chat with Alex about this project. Tell us more about this second collaboration with RedBull? The Red Bull...
INTERVIEW: MIKKO

INTERVIEW: MIKKO

Mikko and I met via Instagram. I always check my followers’s profile, especially if they constantly like my post. When going through his profile, I realized that Mikko had one of those addictive Instagram accounts. His looks are edgy, fun and iconoclast. Intrigued, I ended up chatting with him on my Facebook page about fashion,...
INTERVIEW: STUDIO PRETZEL

INTERVIEW: STUDIO PRETZEL

Italy’s hegemony in the fashion industry is unquestionable but when it comes to young designers, things are more debatable. Although Prada, Gucci, Versace, Dolce and Gabbana are in everyone’s mind, it’s actually quite difficult to name an up-and-coming designer. Fortunately, Pitti Uomo, the most important menswear tradeshow in Europe, has a tradition of showcasing young...
INTERVIEW: PAULO SUCCAR

INTERVIEW: PAULO SUCCAR

Few weeks ago, my friend Mikko (check out his blog!) tagged me on Instagram on a picture from Paulo Spring collection. I immediately fell in love with the prints in his collection and his aesthetic. Intrigued by the consistency of his work, I emailed him few questions… How and when did you start designing?  I don’t remember the...
INTERVIEW: JULIAN ZIGERLI

INTERVIEW: JULIAN ZIGERLI

My favorite Swiss designer, Julian Zigerli came to NYC few weeks ago to shoot a new video for his new Fall Winter collection. This project named Happy Tears, like his collection, features Alan Cumming (The Good Wife, Eyes Wide Shut) and is directed by Berlin based artist Martin Monk. How did guys meet? Julian: First...
INTERVIEW: REILLY / SNCL

INTERVIEW: REILLY / SNCL

Reilly is the head designer of the London based label SNCL. We met in NYC during the trade-show Capsule where he was showcasing his first collection. I immediately liked his t-shirts series, homage to the Memphis (created by Ettore Sottsass). Intrigued by his work, he nicely accepted to tell us more… Tell us more about your background.  I studied...
