SHOPPING: DR MARTENS SS15

SHOPPING: DR MARTENS SS15

The punk spirit is stronger than ever with this new Dr Martens collection! As always, you’ll find the beautiful classic brogues, all Made in England and using a new shiny Portuguese leather, but it wouldn’t be a proper Dr Martens without a vibrant homage to the American Hardcore scene with these red or blue boots (who...
SHOPPING: NIKELAB FREE RIFT SANDAL

SHOPPING: NIKELAB FREE RIFT SANDAL

Looking in the past to reinvent the future seems to be Nike’s latest mantra. After revisiting a few of its classics (Air Force, Air Max, …), Nike, through its experimental division NikeLab, just reimagined the Rift, a hybrid between a sandal and a sneakers. Launched in 1996, the Rift was initially designed to offer runners flexibility...

SHOPPING: SANDALS

Time to update your sandals collection with some revisited classics (thanks to Mr Porter). First Birkenstock’s Boston sandals in an elegant with off-white suede, followed by Japanese brand Suicoke and its updated strap sandals (using a two-tone Vibram sole), then Zurich-based Dan Ward with its super chic black and white flip-flops and last but least Adidas’s slides....
SHOPPING: LOUIS VUITTON ACCESSORIES

SHOPPING: LOUIS VUITTON ACCESSORIES

These Louis Vuitton’s sneakers are everything! I love the combination of a classic runner’s features with Louis Vuitton’s embossed iconic damier pattern. The different panels offer a nice and subtle white on white play making this style very chic and low-key. Louis Vuitton always surprises us with new interpretations of its monogram. This deep blue V printed...

SHOPPING: K-SWISS BELMON T

Known initially for its performance styles, K-Swiss rapidly introduced court inspired sneakers. One of them, the Belmont T, reprises some of the brand’s classic features (five stripes, decorative stitching) with a very vintage feeling thanks to its canvas, minimal silhouette and rubber midsole.

SHOPPING: JUUN J x ADIDAS

SHOPPING: JUUN J x ADIDAS

Juun J teamed with Adidas to celebrate its classic Superstar style. While I’m not particular fan of this lackluster celebration (besides the Adidas Consortium x DMOP Superstar model), these two minimalist reinterpretations (hight-top and low-top) are just perfect with the three Velcro replacing the original stripes and the updated silhouettes. Check them out below. Leather high-top trainers Shop them...
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

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...

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...

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...

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.

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...
