NOW: ASSK SS15

Social comment is a crucial part of Paris based label ASSK. After exploring Doomsday last winter, the new collection is focusing on video surveillance, internet, glitches and all sort of visual collaterals. Agatha and Sarah, the duo behind ASSK, used this time patchworks of pictures or stretched pixels to create visual landscapes...

SHOPPING: PATRIK ERVELL SS15

Patrik Ervell’s obsession for minimalism and textures reached a new level with his Spring Summer collection all inspired by industrial materials and interior design. The collection questions the notion of wearability when trespassing the frontier between industrial and fashion, furniture and clothes. The codes are all inverted, defining new parameters and transforming...

SHOPPING: ACNE STUDIO SS15

What makes Acne Studio so special? Well, forget about the hype, the trendy imagery and the lovely packaging. Acne Studios is the most “realist” contemporary brand that I’ve ever bought. Everything is well-thought-out from the fabric choices, the fit to the price range. You feel tempted, flattered and obliged to get it. Acne epitomizes also very well this Nordic...

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...

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...

REVIEW: FW15

All good things must come to an end. New Fashion Week closed almost two months of men’s shows spread out between Europe and the US, from early January to mid February. Busy shooting most of the time, I only get to see everything afterward. I actually appreciate this distance, giving me more time to digest...

SHOPPING: LOUIS VUITTON – V LINE

Louis Vuitton’s dedication to perfection and the art of travel is restless. The Parisian house just released a new leather goods collection, the V LINE. Made with innovative leather and exceptional attention to details (water-resistant, lightweight, versatile), the series was designed for the urban explorer. At the occasion, Louis Vuitton filmed two acclaimed talents, Japanese multimedia artist Ryoichi Kurokawa and American pro-skater Alex Olson,...

SHOPPING: RAF SIMONS SS15

While these pieces are only the first (and quite limited) delivery from the Spring Summer collection, it seemed right to feature them now. Raf Simons reached a nice momentum with his last collections mixing his love for visual art and his never-ending youth celebration (pop and punk elements). After his collaboration with the artist Sterling Ruby, the new collection explores a more...

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...

INTERVIEW: BARTON PERREIRA

The luxury eyewear industry is mostly dominated by ready-to-wear brands (Prada, Saint Laurent,…) or international licenses (Ray-Ban for example). Just go to your local department store to verify it. It’s rare to find independent names capable to compete with them on an international scale. Barton Perreira is certainly the most prominent one. Founded in 2007...
