SHOPPING: GRENSON x NICK WOOSTER

This quote from Tim Little, creative director and owner of Grenson, sums up perfectly what this first collaboration with Nick Wooster is about: “When I see him in them I always think that’s exactly how they should be worn. We loved the idea of seeing what would happen if we...

You might not remember Tim Little but he’s the lucky owner and creative director the fantastic brand Grenson. Tim Little’s brand operates more like a personal laboratory, playing and reinventing classic or more contemporary styles. For this season, Tim worked closely with Italian artisans to create luxury sneakers and boots, all made using local calf...

SHOPPING: T-SHIRTS

Believe it or not, I don’t have any specific explanation to justify this selection besides that I actually love these t-shirts. That being said, they truly are representative of what these brands are about, graphic for Neil Barrett, conceptual for Wanatabe, quirky for Loewe and athletic for Y-3. You can shop them by clicking on...

SHOPPING: PRADA’S RUNWAY SHOES FW15

I can already see some of my friends rolling their eyes wondering why I find these Prada newsworthy. If fashion, and consequently dressing up, is about playing with visual codes and breaking conventions, these are the perfect example of what Fashion can offer, an hybrid between classicism and avant-garde. While their design process wasn’t disclosed by Prada,...

NOW: CHAPTER FW15

Chapter time travels this season exploring two unparalleled worlds, the first days of the space odyssey and the cyberpunk movement in the 1980s. The collection takes cues from when uncertain times were predominant but also the promises of a different future and the discovery of a new humankind nourished new hopes. As a result, this season is aesthetically more challenging mixing monastic wool coats with...

SHOPPING: REEBOK CLASSIC BY WOOD WOOD

This collaboration is clearly the best of two worlds, bringing the fresh and clean aesthetic of Danish brand Wood Wood to the street culture icon Reebok. This new collaboration revisits some of Reebok’s classics (cap, bucket hat, polo-shirts, hoodies, jackets, track pants, sneakers) using the same visual language that made WW popular as well as the same premium fabrics...

SHOPPING: CHURCH’S FW15

I can’t resist to commando soles. Period. Beyond the practicality of its inherent function, the chunkiness and dents made them, to me, extremely sexy. It’s also aesthetically more challenging to find the right shoes with the right proportions (between the upper part of the shoe and sole), making them somehow extra special when perfectly nailed. I’m particularly in...

SHOPPING: NIKE FLASH PACK FALL 15

Nike’s Flash Packs are now some kind of a ritual, dropping every fall. After a more subtle series last year playing with silver reflections, Nike went back to a more colorful aesthetic with golden and iridescent shades. The men’s collection includes accessories, apparel and of course footwear with the now classics Air Zoom, Free and...

NOW: OFFICINE GENERALE FW15

Doubt is almost a second nature for us French. Writer Andre Gide actually wrote: “Believe those who seek the truth, doubt those who find it; doubt all, but do not doubt yourself”*. While it might be symptomatic of any creative process, it describes quite well what Officine Generale’s founder Pierre Maheo went through when designing his...

SHOPPING: BLACK AND WHITE SWEATSHIRTS

The love affair between the 90’s and designers seems to never end. First was probably Hedi Slimane who, ever since he came back to Saint Laurent, have been resurrecting Kurt Cobain every other season and then, the newcomers, especially Gosha Rubchinskiy, who made the 90’s (and everything grunge) cool again. As a result, these season seems a...

BARTON PERREIRA x BERGDORF GOODMAN

One of my favorite eyewear brands, Barton Perreira, just teamed with Bergdorf Goodman for the 25th anniversary of their men’s store in NYC. For the occasion, Barton Perreira updated its classic keyhole bridge style using tortoiseshell acetate (besides the champagne style) and as always all made in Japan.

How to capture past and present while still defining the future? To answer that question, Byron and Dexter, the two masterminds behind Want Les Essentiels, went on a journey to capture the essence of tomorrow. Their fascination for everything sci-fi helped them to visually define the new FW15 collection updating Want classics with beautiful textured fabrics including these...

NOW: OC FW15 BY SPIKE JONZE

Spike Jones, before becoming an acclaimed director, was one of the most prolific 90’s photographers and music video directors collaborating with the Beastie Boys, Bjork, REM and Sonic Youth. Like most photographers, he needed a friend, here Humberto Leon, to resurrect some of these magical moments. After days in Los Angeles digging into Jones’s archives, Leon came up...

Surprisingly, this is the first time that Kenzo has made such elaborated and futuristic sneakers. The Sonic reprises Kenzo’s ethos with a playful series of contrasts, mixing rubber, leather and mesh, soft and strict lines, chunky details and lightweight materials. This first iteration dropped in three colorways, yellow, dark green and black.
