SHOPPING: CAMPER FW14

The new Fall Winter season marks a new direction for Camper with former Mugler designer Romain Kremer as a creative director. While you can still identify Camper’s aesthetic, the line has clearly taken a new path. The classic Pelotas for example, Camper’s iconic shoe, has received a futuristic treatment with a nylon like material or glossi soft...

After Pharrell, Adidas teamed up with Japanese streetwear icon Nigo for a vintage inspired capsule collection including footwear and apparel. This new collaboration celebrates the origins of the streetwear cultures through a series of revisited staples such as the varsity jacket or the ZX 500 and Superstar 80 sneakers.
SHOPPING: REEBOK CLASSIC LEATHER NIGHT

SHOPPING: REEBOK CLASSIC LEATHER NIGHT

Reebok just released these really cool leather sneakers with an iridescent snake print along with a black/white speckle sole. I really like this new take, adding a fun reinterpretation to this classic. It’s also quite rare to see sportswear brands using this material (besides sometimes Nike) so it’s clearly worth the attention.
SHOPPING: PENDLETON BY NIKEiD

SHOPPING: PENDLETON BY NIKEiD

Nike and Pendleton continue to explore their ongoing collaboration through NIKEiD bringing together the best of two worlds, Nike’s unmatched achievement and Pendleton’s craftsmanship and heritage.  The limited edition features Pendleton’s Umatilla  tartan fabric, symbol of the Oregon based company since 1924.

SHOPPING: PURIFIED x CRAIG GREEN

Purified continues its uncompromised journey by collaborating with London Collection: Men’s enfant terrible aka Craig Green. Dominic Webster, Purified’s founder, invited Craig to design two new styles, heavy soled derby and a boot in high shine leather. These pieces are an exploration of the buckle and harness as functional or decorative elements of the shoe. You can find them at Dover...
SHOPPING: ADIDAS x RICK OWENS

SHOPPING: ADIDAS x RICK OWENS

Less is more, right? The Rick Owens collection for Adidas reprises its now famous Tech Runner changing the round edges from last season to sharp edges amplifying the futuristic and aggressive design. While it’s clearly not for everyone, you have to admit the bold take and unique vision.
SHOPPING: PONY M-100 LE

SHOPPING: PONY M-100 LE

Pony continues to celebrate its heritage with its first collaboration with Harlem based mecca of sneakers, Atmos. The high tops are a full-on hommage to performance basketball sneakers as made in the 80’s featuring chunky rubber and nubuck accents. As you can also see, this new edition was updated with a wool silhouette giving it...
SHOPPING: ADIDAS x RAF SIMONS FW14

SHOPPING: ADIDAS x RAF SIMONS FW14

Sneakers are for men what handbags are for women. Almost each season seems to bring a newcomer and a handful of mind blowing styles. As you might know by now, the Adidas x Raf Simons series is my favorite. For this season, two new boots were introduced. Called the Bunny Bounce, their styles reprise a...
SHOPPING: ADIDAS ORIGINAL x PHARRELL

SHOPPING: ADIDAS ORIGINAL x PHARRELL

There is barely a week without Pharrell announcing a new collaboration! He and Adidas just teamed up for a capsule collection featuring new interpretations of Adidas classics. The Superstar track jacket and the Stan Smith have been reimagined in super chic monochrome leather (red, black, blue) with nice detailing (contrasting 3-stripes or logo on the...
SHOPPING: NIKE + R.T. AIR FORCE 1 COLLECTION

SHOPPING: NIKE + R.T. AIR FORCE 1 COLLECTION

Every good collaboration must come to an end. While some of us are still trying to get our hands on the two first Nike+Tisci Air Force 1 series, Nike just announced the third and last installment for October 16th. After the classic white, the rebellious black, the new series comes in more elegant soft beige giving to...

French fair trade sneaker brand Veja just launched their new sneakers called La Memory. The goal here was to create a perfect balance between style and technology mixing a classic chukka with their in-house sole called LRT (Liquid Rubber Technology) for maximum response and comfort.

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: 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: 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: 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...
SHOPPING: CONVERSE x MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA

SHOPPING: CONVERSE x MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA

This is a really good news for anyone who missed the first Converse x Maison Martin Margiela collection launched last September. The new series uses the same technique (i.e. white hand-painted sneakers from the laces to sole) on an ultra-soft premium leather. Again, it’s all about how the overpaint will fade, crack and reveal its...

SHOPPING: NIKE MERCURIAL AND MAGISTA COLLECTIONS

I couldn’t care less about the upcoming Brazil World Cup but Nike had – again – the genius idea to celebrate it with two capsule collections, the Mercurial and Magista series. The collection features Nike’s best technologies, the Flyknit and the Lunarlon. Needless to say that my favorite sneakers are obviously the Air Max 1 and Air Max 90...

Once well-known as the go to sneakers for runners in the early 80′s, the Reebok Classic leather is making a powerful come back. Its slick design in super chic white on white has set this classic to be a new dual purpose essential. They will also be a great wardrobe addition whether you are looking...
