Brandish Christmas Picks: Comme Des Garçons Christmas pouch

As Isabelle has mentioned and as you may be aware from the adverts that have been on your telly since the start of November (which is too early goddamit!) it’s Christmas time and time to start thinking of what gifts you’re going to ply your loved ones with. From Comme Des Garçons are these Christmas pouches, made from black leather and studded with Swarovski stones to spell out “Dec 2008″. Other than the lettering on the outside I’m not clear on what makes these so Christmassy, perhaps you could fill them with love to all men and seasonal good will. Also it occurs to me that if you pull this out to buy your ice cream in the height of summer, you’re going to look a little bit of a dick with your past season Christmas based pouch.

These will be available from Dover Street Market soon if you know of someone who needs a Christmas-based pouch. Jump through for more pics.

Adidas Originals x Alyasha x Kazuki- no leopard print!

By Jonathan Smith on October 29th, 2008

A few weeks ago we gave you previews of the Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals collab and I for one didn’t much like it. This week highsnobiety has got their hands on a tiny preview of Adidas Originals’ colabs with Alyasha (from Fiberops) and Kazuki (from Fragment Design). Though this preview is limited to one pic of each, the pieces look good and far better than the Jeremy Scott collaboration- i.e. no leopard print in sight.

With any luck Adidas Originals is back on track with these two partnerships, full previews coming in a few weeks time.

Jump through for more images and check out the highsnobiety site for quotes from both designers on their lines with Adidas.

Footwear

Pointer yourself in the right direction

Pointer are a fashion given, their simple designed footwear borders the boundary between smart and casual wear. Owned by Carhartt, Pointer have dug themselves a little niche that is ever expanding in a business dominated by one swoosh and three stripes, with even the most hardcore of Ekin (a person who knows Nike back to front- work it out) dropping a pair of Pointers into their collection.

Nick Schonberger
of highsnobiety.com talks to Gareth Skewis, one of the brains behind Pointer on topics such as his influences, the market and Pointer’s competition. Check the interview out here and check some Pointer footwear out here, if you haven’t already.
