I can’t seem to go a day without mentioning Kanye West lately, but this complex post is an interesting one on his various collaborations and the likeliness of them ever appearing in stores. Let us know which one you think will be out first in the poll after the jump.

With Stan Smiths and Rod Lavers firmly in staple territory you can’t blame Adidas for re-releasing the Aditennis Hi (£41-50). Whilst they’re unlikely to become staples, they look great – benefitting from more than a slight resemblance to Raf Simons high tops.
Unlike the Raf Simons shoes, these go up to size 12 and are available from the Adidas online store right now.
Check Luella S/S 2008 or Raf Simons A/W 2005 and you’ll see that while you were in leathers and manmade fibres doing Bourne Identity, we were rocking Clark Kent shades and vintage ties.
See after the jump for more information and pictures.
René Lacoste turned up at tennis tournaments dressed almost as good as he played and it was from a bet on a crocodile skin suitcase that the famous Lacoste logo came about. This trend report is about the stylish ‘Public School’ look that came about as a result of Mr Lacoste’s personal style. Prepare yourself for a whole new type of playground mafia.

Hot on the heels of the Comme Des Garçons collaboration, Fred Perry are now pairing up with Jil Sander head honcho and King of sub-cultural style, Raf Simons. This adds another line to Simons’s bulging portfolio – along with Jil Simons he designs his own name label and Raf for Raf Simons and a line of backpacks for Eastpack.
Fred Perry were looking to broaden their product range from “a few star polo shirts” which CDG “weren’t on board for” according to the Fred Perry spokesman. Oo-er, that sounds a bit snarky.
The range will be available this Autumn. It will include polos, sweaters and trousers all in black with different coloured logos. Very understated.
More sale coats! This one is by Raf Simons and is from ASOS, who’ve already taken 50% off loads of their stock, putting this coat at £256, which ain’t bad for Raf Simons.
This coat is part parka, part puffa and is the best of both worlds. It’s got the big-on-top silhouette which I don’t reckon will be going anywhere soon so you’ll still be able to wear it next winter. And it looks dead warm.
If you like the Raf Simons gothy post-punk vibe, you can’t go far wrong with this baby.
Raf by Raf Simons is a new diffusion line
by, er, Raf Simons. Launched in 2006, the line has recently made its way onto
ASOS as part of their premium brands range. While I could be all bitchy
about things like these
jeans, what’s the point? Everyone (ASOS included) know no one’s going to
buy them. In an effort to get into the Christmas spirit, I’m going to be
cheerful and choose my favourite piece from this collection. And…..drumroll
please…..my favourite piece of the Raf by Raf Simons collection
If you said that shirt was a bit boring I
wouldn’t disagree with you. It’s not going to change your life. But it is a
well made key piece that will be a staple in your wardrobe for a long time. At
£150, it’s not cheap, but at least you’ll be wearing for a couple of seasons.
