SHOPPING: RAF SIMONS FOR FRED PERRY

SHOPPING: RAF SIMONS FOR FRED PERRY

This is the tenth Raf Simons’ collection for Fred Perry and it’s still looking good! While the silhouette remains the same, simple, clean and completely assuming Fred Perry’s heritage, Raf Simons gave it an streetwear twist using stripes, strong color blocking and a darker color palette. I also enjoy how this collection is...

SHOPPING: TOMORROWLAND FW14

Tomorrowland or the best of two worlds. You probably have never heard of this excellent Japanese brand, unless you’ve traveled to Japan where Tomorrowland just celebrated its 36th anniversary. While the brand is known for its partnerships (Acne Studios, Dries Van Noten and UMIT BENAN to name just a few), Tomorrowland has...
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...
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...

SHOPPING : RAF SIMONS x ADIDAS SS14

You certainly have noticed my obsession for sneakers and particularly this season for the Raf Simons x Adidas collection (if not see the first story and the second). I truly consider them as museum pieces. You can’t really associate them with any other shoe previously designed besides maybe some Sci-Fi movie props. From the rear colored...

SHOPPING: COSTALOTS SUNGLASSES

Costalots sunglasses are one of a kind. While still made with premium acetate and using Carl Zeiss lenses, there is no direct heritage influences or desire to be too cute here. Matt Costa, the mastermind behind the brand, has always been intrigued by safety glasses. So he decided to create their own style and turn the utilitarian into beauty. The sunglasses...

SHOPPING: Y-3 BACKPACK

If you look around, rare are the designers able to create backpacks that are actually true to their DNA and also cool. Y-3 is one of them. Their SS14 collection infuses creative energy with a subtle mix of patterns (designed by the legendary Peter Saville), Adidas or Y-3′s graphic elements or outdoor inspiration (mesh). There is nothing loud...

This first collaboration is a...

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...

INTERVIEW: GARRETT LEIGHT

Reinventing sunglasses is a tricky job. A lot has been done before and most of us, at least those of us addicted to them, have seen almost everything. But when it comes to offer a modern take on heritage inspired sunnies, few designers can make the cut. Garrett Leight is one who has. He first...

SNCL continues its foray into streetwear by developing powerful and graphic silhouettes. Reilly, SNCL’s head designer, was influenced this season by Jasper Johns’s artwork.

Nothing beats a printed shirt, especially when spring – finally – shows up! I always find it fascinating to see that almost every single guy has one regardless of his style.
