SHOPPING: PONY 3M FLASH PACK

SHOPPING: PONY 3M FLASH PACK

Two versions of Pony’s Topstar, the Ox and the Hi Top, have been revisited with 3M reflective upper giving a slick and modern treatment to these classics. I personally love the grey style, completely reflective, as opposed to the white version (just the chevron was made in 3M). You can shop them on Pony.com
SHOPPING: TIMBERLAND HELCOR EXOTIC SERIES

SHOPPING: TIMBERLAND HELCOR EXOTIC SERIES

I recently stumbled across these Timberland Helcor Exotic 6-Inch boots and I’m loving them! Made with a premium leather (thicker and softer) and featuring a reptilian-skinned pattern, this new iteration is – of course – waterproof, abrasion-resistant, cold and heat resistant. The matte texture gives them a really chic look while the reptilian-skinned pattern catches beautifully the light. You...

SHOPPING: GRENSON SS15

Back in November I had the chance to meet Grenson’s creative director and owner Tim Little and chat about the brand, what it means to create shoes and revisit classics. Tim is truly committed to create beauty and simplicity. His new Spring Summer collection is here to prove it again with elegant new styles. First, the...
SHOPPING: NIKE LAB DUNK LUX HIGH

SHOPPING: NIKE LAB DUNK LUX HIGH

Revisiting classics seems to be the big trend since a year or so. After the Air Force One launched in a premium edition last fall, NikeLab just updated its Dunk High using their latest innovation. The 1985’s classic shoe was redesigned using less material for a more contemporary silhouette (noticeable in the toe-box and heel). Memory...
SHOPPING: AIR MAX 1 ULTRA MOIRE

SHOPPING: AIR MAX 1 ULTRA MOIRE

Nike’s quest for more simplicity, lightweight products and innovation seems endless. Made with synthetic suede, laser-perforated, one-piece upper ( actually inspired by the 2006 Nike Air Zoom Moire), the Air Max Ultra Moire offers playful color and fabric contrasts while keeping very low key with mute textures. The sole has been completely revisited using less material while...

SHOPPING: HESCHUNG SHOES

SHOPPING: HESCHUNG SHOES

It all started in 1934 with the creation of the Schlitteur heavy-duty boot. Far in the Northern Alsace (east of France), Eugene Heschung decided to establish his own business after 14 years in the industry. First supported by the major industrial activity in Alsace, the brand started developing all sorts of boots, from hiking to competition skiing. 80...
SHOPPING: NIKE ESCAPE COLLECTION

SHOPPING: NIKE ESCAPE COLLECTION

Finally a new Nike Sportswear Escape Pack! While Nike has released similar Escape pack since 1988, it has been a moment since we had a such exciting one. For the occasion, Nike updated four of its classics, the Air Max 1, the Air Max 90, the Air Max 95 and the Internationalist Mid in earthy leathers. The result is elegant layering of creamy...

SHOPPING: MIAMI ART BASEL EDITION

Miami Art Basel starts today transforming the entire city into a cultural hub jam-packed with jet setters, fashion editors and eventually art critics.

SHOPPING: PRADA NEXT

SHOPPING: PRADA NEXT

After a first series released last spring, Prada just launched five new colorways of their iconoclast Prada Next. While they might look at first as a departure from the classic Prada sneaker, the Next is a continuation of Muccia Prada’s obsession for architecture, industrial design and technical materials. Behind the chunky features lay a desire...
SHOPPING: DR MARTENS FW14

SHOPPING: DR MARTENS FW14

I’m always amazed to see how Dr Martens successfully delivers each season so many exciting new styles while respecting its history. The new Fall Winter is a continuation of the last Spring Summer series dedicated to the core values (i.e. punk and British heritage). This season mixes archive inspired pieces like the Grasp boots and shoes, ultimate...
SHOPPING: CHURCH'S FW14

SHOPPING: CHURCH’S FW14

It’s been more than 150 years now since Church’s created its unique tradition and were soon recognised for their impeccable craftsmanship. So it goes without saying that Church’s has nothing to prove to anyone, and just keeps doing what any shoe lover loves, making an elegant shoe. While the fall winter collection offers a substantial...
SHOPPING: CAMPER FW14

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...

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: 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.

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...
