SHOPPING: GUY LAB

There are two kinds of guys when it comes to underwear, the one who cares and the one who doesn’t. The little survey that I’ve been running among my friends just confirmed it as well. I’m personally part of this first group, the one willing to try several types before finding the right one. More than any...

SHOPPING: T-SHIRTS

Believe it or not, I don’t have any specific explanation to justify this selection besides that I actually love these t-shirts. That being said, they truly are representative of what these brands are about, graphic for Neil Barrett, conceptual for Wanatabe, quirky for Loewe and athletic for Y-3. You can shop them by clicking on...
SHOPPING: PRADA'S RUNWAY SHOES FW15

SHOPPING: PRADA’S RUNWAY SHOES FW15

I can already see some of my friends rolling their eyes wondering why I find these Prada newsworthy. If fashion, and consequently dressing up, is about playing with visual codes and breaking conventions, these are the perfect example of what Fashion can offer, an hybrid between classicism and avant-garde. While their design process wasn’t disclosed by Prada,...

SHOPPING: REEBOK CLASSIC BY WOOD WOOD

This collaboration is clearly the best of two worlds, bringing the fresh and clean aesthetic of Danish brand Wood Wood to the street culture icon Reebok.

SHOPPING: CHURCH'S FW15

SHOPPING: CHURCH’S FW15

I can’t resist to commando soles. Period. Beyond the practicality of its inherent function, the chunkiness and dents made them, to me, extremely sexy. It’s also aesthetically more challenging to find the right shoes with the right proportions (between the upper part of the shoe and sole), making them somehow extra special when perfectly nailed. I’m particularly in...

SHOPPING: BLACK AND WHITE SWEATSHIRTS

The love affair between the 90’s and designers seems to never end. First was probably Hedi Slimane who, ever since he came back to Saint Laurent, have been resurrecting Kurt Cobain every other season and then, the newcomers, especially Gosha Rubchinskiy, who made the 90’s (and everything grunge) cool again. As a result, these season seems a...

SHOPPING: GRENSON x NICK WOOSTER

This quote from Tim Little, creative director and owner of Grenson, sums up perfectly what this first collaboration with Nick Wooster is about: “When I see him in them I always think that’s exactly how they should be worn.

Surprisingly, this is the first time that Kenzo has made such elaborated and futuristic sneakers. The Sonic reprises Kenzo’s ethos with a playful series of contrasts, mixing rubber, leather and mesh, soft and strict lines, chunky details and lightweight materials.

I’ve been quietly scanning Nike.com for new releases. My convulsive sneakers obsession (and everything Nike) always bring me back there every time I’ve a moment. First was the Air Max Excellerate spotted on this normcore guy a week ago on the L train. He was wearing this oversized sweater with rolled-up fitted trackpants, both black. Their...
