KTZ’s success is the story of an underdog turned into one of the most acclaimed and successful brands. Unlike many brands, KTZ has created its own rules and thanks to that, found a massive audience ready to jump into its world. Season after season, Marjan Pejoski and Koji Maruyama have...
SHOPPING: NIKE x PIGALLE

SHOPPING: NIKE x PIGALLE

Nike seems unstoppable these days and is redefining what the hype is all about. After the Nike + R.T. collaboration (still wondering if it has really happened since only a few people put their hands on them), Nike teamed with Pigalle Paris, soon to be City of Light’s new fashion...

NOW: BOTTEGA VENETA SS14

Summer is generally the pivotal moment of the year where designers reveal bodies, embrace bright colors, and most importantly develop a more joyful narrative. Unlike his colleagues, Bottega Veneta’s designer Tomas Maier took another direction. The colour palette was consciously limited to black, grey and white (with few splashes of...
SHOPPING: SHWOOD SUNGLASSES

SHOPPING: SHWOOD SUNGLASSES

Wood, like acetate (main material used for sunglasses), has something very unique. Its texture and quality can differ dramatically from one to another. If used correctly, it can elevate a simple object to something elegant and refined. Portland based brand, SHWOOD  has totally integrated this concept. The precision of its...

SHOPPING: DR MARTENS SS14

Dr Martens has gone wild with its new spring summer! Their tagline “Stand For Something” is truly the only way to define this collection. Punk, bondage, studs, medieval or gothic prints, denim, bronze or silver coating, sandals-boots… nothing was forgotten. Each style is a statement piece and a great homage to Dr Martens’ DNA, rebellion...

SHOPPING: MYKITA SS14

Mykita reinvents eyewear season after season using all types of materials from the classic acetate and stainless to the unusual Mylon (a highly complex and super flexible plastic). Their new spring summer collection digs even deeper into the extremes. Whether made in acetate or stainless (Hunter and DD04), the classic styles have been simplified and streamlined, and...
SHOPPING: JARDINE

SHOPPING: JARDINE

Minimalism, premium materials and timelessness are the key elements that define Jardine. The New York brand was founded in 2012 by Nathan Bogle, ex co-founder of Rag & Bone. His years of experience in the industry (and also during a small hiatus) have allowed him to rethink what menswear is nowadays. Jardine is made for...

SHOPPING: A.P.C. + NIKE AIR MAX

There is not a single week without a major Air Max release. Today, A.P.C. is launching its own Nikes. Made in dark navy and of course no A.P.C. logo in sight, these sneakers are pure a minimalist statement. I love the contrast between the suede, the upper part in mesh upper and the leather accents. As always...
SHOPPING: CADET SS14

SHOPPING: CADET SS14

It took me some time to appreciate Cadet. When I first spotted it few seasons ago, most of the NY designers were branding their collection “Made in USA” as unique selling point forgetting to care about the most important part, the quality. The  fabrics were poorly selected and the execution and the fit were off....
NOW: RAF SIMONS SS14

NOW: RAF SIMONS SS14

Raf Simons couldn’t find better a metaphor than this gigantic Calder mobile installed in the Gagosian gallery where his show took place last June. Elongated, monastic but with a splash of color, you can easily see a vibrant homage to the American sculptor. I also love how Raf Simons translated the current sportswear’s obsession by stretching...

SHOPPING: RAF SIMONS x ADIDAS SS14

Whether you like them or not, the Raf Simons x Adidas collaborations are unique. Unlike many other labels, Raf Simons is not creating a designer shoe but he’s offering his vision as a creative mind. Each of his series has always been about redefining the product. So for this season, Adidas invited him to offer...

NOW: CALVIN KLEIN COLLECTION SS14

NOW: CALVIN KLEIN COLLECTION SS14

Studies say that the color blue is the most popular one in the world. It supposedly appeases, inspires and helps us experience the ultimate happiness. Looking at the new Calvin Klein Collection Spring Summer, I couldn’t agree more. These men are sexy, confident, powerful while being also delicate (love the sky series). It’s a successful...

SHOPPING: STUTTERHEIM

Raincoats are not really sexy or especially trendy. Apart from Burberry, rare are the brands who have tried redefining what used to be a wardrobe essential. Everything changed in 2010 when Alexander Stutterheim decided to imagine another type of raincoat. His first idea wasn’t to revolutionize, but rather to pay homage to his granddad’s classic...

This picture speaks for itself! RainMan does waterproof classic shoes so you won’t have to compromise between your style and your toes!

NOW: ALEXANDER WANG SS14

Be ready to invest in a new leather piece this season! Most of the designers have introduced  a few key pieces in their collection from t-shirt to shorts (another summer must-have). If there is one designer who took it seriously, it’s Alexander Wang. Leather is almost everywhere with multiple strong pieces. Perforated shirts, oversized sweatshirts...

SHOPPING: CAMPER x BERNHARD WILLHELM SS14

These sneakers are the 10th collaboration between Bernhard Willhelm and Camper and it got even better this season! While the Himalayan were offered a pretty “low key” treatment for this season, the sandals got the royal treatment! I totally love the color blocking, the color palette, the large straps and the stripes on the insole....

SHOPPING: BARTON PERREIRA SS14

If someone knows how to make you look like a movie star, it’s Barton Perreira. Their sunnies and frames combine contemporary features while keeping it slightly retro. The materials used, from the acetate to the glasses, are all sourced from the best manufacturers. It’s pretty much la creme de la creme. There is obviously much...

You certainly have seen Jamie Reid’s work before without knowing it (if not, google him). But for the ones whom know how influential his work is, especially when it comes to the punk culture and subculture, the new Fred Perry x Jamie Reid Blank Canvas collection will seem completely organic. For the occasion, three styles have...
