NOW: FABRIC-BRAND & CO

Since its creation in the mid 19th century, denim has remained a constant source of inspiration and reinvention. It’s interesting to note that most of the new players are neither American nor part of the traditional denim history, leaving to the original actors (Levi’s and Co…) not that much room to remain relevant. One of these newcomers...

NOW: WOOD WOOD SS16

Wood Wood SS16 collection goes one step further from its streetwear origins to embrace a more creative direction. This new season switched from the classic black & white uniform to a rich color palette of burgundy, warm beige, indigo and deep navy blue. The silhouette, while remaining quite linear and sometimes boxy, is slightly more complex, introducing more separates and multiple...
NOW: ONIA SPRING 16

NOW: ONIA SPRING 16

It’s a bit early in the season but the weather has been so nice here in NYC that summer is becoming day after day a tangible reality. I really like Onia. They make sophisticated prints, made in-house or in collaboration with Liberty London, quite often bold but surprisingly not overwhelming. The fabrics used have also very nice...

NOW: J.W.ANDERSON | IAN DAVID BAKER

J.W. Anderson created his very own space in the fashion world, questioning gender, infusing romanticism and poetry but mostly importantly intertwining art and fashion in an open dialogue. One of his latest ventures includes a new Workshop series featuring visual artists. After a first collaboration last January with Luis Venegas, photographer and illustrator Ian David Baker was...
NOW: BARTON PERREIRA - HANDMADE IN JAPAN

NOW: BARTON PERREIRA – HANDMADE IN JAPAN

The Barton Perreira team had the excellent idea to document their fabrication process in Japanese factory where all their frames are handmade. Only a few brands kept their production there so it’s really interesting to discover all the steps required to achieve such quality and what it entails. In addition to this video, a few...

NOW: ARMOIRE D’HOMME SS16

There is something reassuring about Armoire d’Homme. Its simplicity, and somehow honesty, proves that a new brand can emerge without all the fuss and eccentricity quite often required to be noticed. Scandinavian brands got us used to their minimalist and understated visions, quite often influenced by workwear and streetwear, but rarely with a classic silhouette. Armoire...
NOW: OC FW15 BY SPIKE JONZE

NOW: OC FW15 BY SPIKE JONZE

Spike Jones, before becoming an acclaimed director, was one of the most prolific 90’s photographers and music video directors collaborating with the Beastie Boys, Bjork, REM and Sonic Youth. Like most photographers, he needed a friend, here Humberto Leon, to resurrect some of these magical moments. After days in Los Angeles digging into Jones’s archives, Leon came up...

NOW: ADIDAS x PALACE FW15

I always have to justify to my friends why I love so much this collaboration. While I’m clearly not a skater (and can’t even fake it), I find really cool that such a young label manage to resurrect Adidas’s aura with some of its most iconic vintage styles. Since launching now a year ago, PALACE founder Lev...
NOW: TOURNE DE TRANSMISSION FW15

NOW: TOURNE DE TRANSMISSION FW15

Looking at the new Tourne de Transmission collection, I couldn’t help but think of Martin Rueber‘s quote “All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware”. Now in its 6th season, Tourne de Transmission embarked in an introspective journey travelling to the northeast of the Himalayas, far from its chaotic origins. The cultural clash revealed a new man,...

NOW: WOOD WOOD FW15

After almost two strong years, the logomania is finally winding down or at least taking a more subtle approach. The last two Comme des garcons collaborations (Supreme and Stussy) and of course the rise of Parisian’s collective Vetement, just to talk about the most recent examples, are here to prove it: no more logo in your...
NOW: PLAC FW15

NOW: PLAC FW15

Founded in 2009 by London College of Fashion alum Jaewan Park, South-Korean brand Plac has steadily built up its own momentum. Known at its beginning as a premium denim brand, Plac has managed to create a contemporary wardrobe balancing sharp silhouettes and more urban pieces. The new collection epitomizes well Plac’s essence with a perfect mix of tailored...
NOW: TOMORROWLAND FW15

NOW: TOMORROWLAND FW15

Tomorrowland is not your traditional Japanese brand. You won’t find here the usual minimalist aesthetic so often praised, but rather a smart and playful blend of British and Italian heritages (mostly for the pattern and fabric choices) combined with sharp silhouettes. This new season sees a major focus on patchworks, color contrasts and loose versus strict lines...

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...

I discovered Siviglia during the last Pitti Uomo in January. Founded in 2006 in Italy, Siviglia became quickly known for the impeccable fit and construction of their pants. The brand fully embraces its Italian heritage with a contemporary twist using playful patterns and a vibrant color palette. My selects from the SS15 SS15 color palette My selects...

Just on time for Paris Fashion Week, Raf Simons unveiled his new campaign with longtime creative partners photographer Willy Vanderperre and stylist Olivier Rizzo. Model Luca Lemaire was portrayed wearing some of the most iconic patchwork pieces from the new collection indoors and outdoors. The team reprised Raf’s favorite aesthetic, a delicate mix between intimate and minimalist composition.

NOW: CADET FW14

Brooklyn based brand Cadet is slowly but surely building up a new silhouette. Their new Fall Winter collection, largely inspired by the US Army wardrobe and 1940’s, presents strong outerwear pieces and nice tailored jackets. You will probably spot also some super sharp pants and sweatpants. I particularly like the olive ones, totally on trend. The revisited bomber...
