Supreme x Levi’s 2011 Fall/Winter Collection

By Laura on September 12th, 2011

Supreme is at it again this time partnering up with Levi’s on their new capsule collection for Fall/Winter 2011.

The collection features a number of standard staples from the American denim giant, including Levi’s 505 Zip-Fly Jean, a Chambray Work Shirt, a Trucker Jacket in leather and suede, a Denim Down Vest and Denim Bell Hat. Although I love the collection, I can’t help but feel that most of it does not look that different from the regular Levi’s collection. Hopefully prices will not be over inflated just because the pieces have a Supreme label slapped in them.

The collection is being assembled in the US and expected to hit stores Sept 15th, Japan on the 17th and the new London store on the 22nd.

Final Uniqlo +J collection Lookbook

By Laura on August 19th, 2011

A few weeks we announced that the upcoming fall/winter +J collection for Uniqlo would be the last. The lookbook is now out, and I have to say this is possibly the strongest collection yet.

There has undeniably been plenty of hype surrounding this final collection, but I can’t get enough of the contrasting colors, linear cuts and the mix of tech-infused materials with traditional fabrics.

Jil Sander’s was one of the first high-fashion designers to collaborate with a mass-market brand like this, and in many ways really set the benchmark for these types of collections. She has continually brought her own unique, dark and structural aesthetic to the Japanese retailer, and this collection is no exception.

One of the most interesting features of this collection is the mix of sportswear with highly tailored pieces. Although it might seem an unusual combination, it is a look that we are seeing quite a bit of at the moment, and something we expect to take off this winter.

The fianl J+ collection will be Available soon in Uniqlo stores the world over.

Liberty & Nike collaboration out on Valentine’s day

By admin on February 10th, 2009

Another item which is made for women but who gives fig when they look as good as this? The Liberty X Nike collab hits the Liberty store when else but this February 14th for a limited time, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.

They have a plain blue pair named Nina, and an orange pair named Phoebe, but the nicest by far are the Patchwork Dunk, a mix showcasing the best of Liberty print. If you should be lucky enough to be slight of foot head down to Liberty and snap up a pair, at £70 for the plain and £85 for the patchwork they’re fairly reasonable and will go wonderfully with the new season pastel pieces making the rounds for Spring/Summer.

Futura x Clarks Wallabee

By Jonathan Smith on January 12th, 2009

wallabeefurutra.jpg

Futura is one of the worlds most prolific graffiti artists up to his eyeballs in collaborations and creating new designs for his own label Futura Laboratories. Now the man from UNKLE is hitting up the mainstream with his latest collab with British childhood favorites Clarks. Futura has added his own trademark touch to the iconic Wallabee, painting and tagging the canvas upper of this streetwear monolith creating something that the hip hoppers and street boppers (what?) are going to be stumbling over their Levi’s Vintage to get their hands on.

As a small side note this move is once more highlighting Clarks transition from outdated cobblers for the very young or very old to a fashion force to be reckoned with. Good game Clarks, very good game.

Keep and eye out this spring for these hitting stores near you and jump through to have a gander at further images.

Video: Band of Outsiders x Sperry

By Jonathan Smith on January 5th, 2009

As videos go this one is kinda dull. There are no explosions, guns or tits nor is there a girl satisfying a horse/dog/herself (delete as applicable) so it’s doubtful that this is the kind of fodder we would usually ogle on our TVs or behind our bedroom’s locked door. However there are shoes, lots of lovely shoes. The video is from Band of Outsiders and showcases their collabo with Sperry bringing some awesome deck shoes for the coming season.

Hit play to see what to look out for in the coming months.

George W Bush’s response to the shoe thrower now available on a t-shirt

By Jonathan Smith on December 17th, 2008

plus41-cellophane-size-ten-shoe-tshirt.jpg

Now we know that Bush is out of office in just over a month and that the good ship McCaine has been sunk we can now look back with nostalgia at good old George W. and in the twilight months of his presidency he gives us the wittiest and quickest remark he has ever mustered: “If you want to know the facts, it’s a size 10 shoe.” – standing ovation please.

With cat like reactions Bush dodged the flying size 10 and with perhaps even quicker reactions PLus 41 and Cellophane have released the t-shirt pictured above, I love it. This is one of those seminal quotes that our generation will always remember and reference and our kids will never understand or care.

Available from PLus41 and Cellophane

Back to the 90′s…

By Jonathan Smith on December 16th, 2008

I’ve always been of the opinion that my shoes lack the neon effect of a porn shop window, which is why I nearly shit a brick when I saw this video. These light up neon laces are the focus point of a pair of Solebox x Puma collaborative sneakers, which will hopefully be released soon- perhaps coming a little late for New Rave however there are probably a few hangers on out there, after all American Apparel is still doing business…

Cassette Playa X Nike Blazer from Amazing Grace on Vimeo.

Day glo maniacs Cassette Playa have got together with sports brand and street fashion monoliths Nike to bring you a special edition Nike Blazer. In Cassette Playa’s typically painful colours these sneakers were first seen as part of Carri Munden’s Spring/Summer 2008 “Future Primitive” runway show earlier this year but will now be made available from Nike Sportswear 1948 store at Bateman’s Row, Shoreditch as well as other select Nike retailers. For those uninterested in the shoe itself perhaps the video above may pique your interest; Carri Munden talks about her brand (Cassette Playa- doye!) and her upcoming collaboration- if you can spare 1 minute 54 seconds it’s worth a peek.

Peter Jensen Gingham Hi.jpg

For a third season Danish designer Peter Jensen and British label Fred Perry are working together on an old staple; the Harrington jacket. Coming in red, black and a very current gingham Jensen is up to standard in his attention to detail with the classic jacket receiving a super-sizing to the pockets and laurel.
