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...
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...
INTERVIEW: NICK FOUQUET

INTERVIEW: NICK FOUQUET

I’m so happy to welcome my friend Andy Stone. Beside being a major MJ’s supporter, Andy has a natural gift for storytelling. Born in America, and now based in France since the last 17 years, Andy was a nomad travelling the world and collecting vintage and denim for 40 years. Once apprenticed as a cowboy hat maker, he has been a “hat guy” ever since, so...
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...
SHOPPING: ECOALF

SHOPPING: ECOALF

When you think of sustainability and fashion, you probably have in mind one of those bohemian products seen at your local organic stores. Most of them are all very cliche and not attractive. Rare are indeed the brands committed to design elegant and modern sustainable products. Spanish brand Ecoalf manages to do both. Their products range includes...
SHOPPING: FRED PERRY SNEAKERS

SHOPPING: FRED PERRY SNEAKERS

It was about time to feature Fred Perry sneakers! While certainly slightly less popular than the polo shirts, the sneakers are nonetheless as cool as the rest of the collection. The Made in England charm has for sure something to do with it. I love the old school touch directly inspired by the tennis heritage. Their design...
MYKITA X MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA

MYKITA X MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA

Uncommon similarities. This is how I define the collaboration between Berlin based brand Mykita and Maison Martin Margiela. This collection reunites two singular talents, both dedicated to define new standards and challenge the definition of beauty. You won’t find anything obviously cute or related to anything heritage or classic. It’s all about futurism, minimalism, singularity and of course with...
SHOPPING: HAPPY SOCKS SS14

SHOPPING: HAPPY SOCKS SS14

It’s funny to see so many brands trying to copy Happy Socks’s style but keep failing. It actually proves one thing: cool socks are not that easy to design! So what’s new this season? Well the Swedish company manages one more time to surprise us with its very unique and crazy colour combinations and patterns....
SHOPPING : RAF SIMONS x ADIDAS SS14

SHOPPING : RAF SIMONS x ADIDAS SS14

You certainly have noticed my obsession for sneakers and particularly this season for the Raf Simons x Adidas collection (if not see the first story and the second). I truly consider them as museum pieces. You can’t really associate them with any other shoe previously designed besides maybe some Sci-Fi movie props. From the rear colored...

SHOPPING: PRINTED SHIRTS AT ASOS

Summer is (almost) here! So it’s time to spruce up your wardrobe and get some fresh new styles. Asos has almost anything we need from my favourite polka dots shirts to the classic Hawaiians including some cool Lazy Oaf pieces. Check out my selects. ASOS Shirt In Short Sleeve With Large Scale Indigo Spot Shop...
SHOPPING: COSTALOTS SUNGLASSES

SHOPPING: COSTALOTS SUNGLASSES

Costalots sunglasses are one of a kind. While still made with premium acetate and using Carl Zeiss lenses, there is no direct heritage influences or desire to be too cute here. Matt Costa, the mastermind behind the brand, has always been intrigued by safety glasses. So he decided to create their own style and turn the utilitarian into beauty. The sunglasses...
