It’s 2016 and I have set up 3 golden rules for myself.
#1: Never leave the house without Bleu De Chanel by CHANEL.
#2: Turn up and never turn down.
#3: Stay hood rich with or without Atelier New Regime.
A Montreal based street wear brand styled for the modern man, Atelier New Regime is committed to redefining the customer experience as we know it. Through the quality of its product, presentation and lifestyle, ANR pushes the creative envelope leaving a unique and thought-provoking impression on the consumer. Over time, Atelier New Regime has grown to be more than clothing. It has evolved into an artistic movement run by a collective of “creatives” whose aim is to express themselves through fashion. And especially the white “Hood Rich” shirt is everything I need right now. Pictures via Atelier New Regime Model: Emile Woon – Photography: Yan Bleney – Styling: Alex Axenova – Mua: Isabella Forget
The internet is the place to be. Has been for years now, still is and probably will be forever and ever. And I am kinda sad to say this, but everything happens on the internet first, before it’s in Vogue or in the streets. Why? Because the internet is the shit. And Raun LaRose already knows, that’s probably why his SS15 collection is named “Because of the internet”.
He explains: “The internet allows us to indulge every aspect of our personality. We are constantly exposed to new ideas, conversations and people. It allows us to create identites and indulge in both ends of the spectrum all at once. Attuned to what is good about it, what is bad, simply how IT IS. We ARE in this moment.”
He continues: “A sense of isolation is channeled into the deconstruction of unfamiliar cuts and shapes, while unity channeled more familiar colors and silhouettes. The freedom and warmth of constant communication translated into more relaxed silhouettes. Experimenting with denim and canvas screen-printing for the first time represented my thought on consumption.” And I absolutely adore this collection. Pictures via Raun LaRose
That’s a good look, better yet a hood look. Here is another ootd! That was actually what I was wearing on the last day of Fashion Week Berlin. I seriously was too tired to “dress up”, which I actually never do. So I was like fuck it and let me chill with my basic ass clothes. And you can tell I was partying a lot:

Sweater: Asos, but it’s very thin so I recommend this one right here. Jeans: Cheap Monday Shoes: Adidas Scarf: From a friend, but similar here.
Underwear: Just kidding (but Calvin Klein)
Jacket: Vintage Urban Outfitters
The 90s are back. FILA, internationally recognized as one of the most iconic sportswear brands, recently linked with JOYRICH for their latest collaboration: the JOYRICH x FILA collection. The footwear takes on a bold look with a black and white solid foundation and hits of red throughout. Staying true to their sporting tradition, the apparel includes tracksuits, tees, hoodies, wind-breakers, bucket-hats and of course, the classic F-13 sneaker model. Both sets of product are highlighted by a light zebra pattern strategically placed. When combined with the street esthetic that JOYRICH is known for, this collection is a great combination of fashion, style, and comfort.
The collection is anchored by the F-13, featuring soft premium leather on the upper and bolstered by a zebra print pony hair flag. Additional branding includes an embroidered logo on the tongue, molded collaboration label on the strap and a gold plated hang tag. Custom packaging with duel logos on the box and tissue paper make this a great pickup for sneaker collectors.
Amsterdam based label Daily Paperreleased the images of the first part of their Spring/Summer 2015. For the look book the label travelled to Morocco, the country that served as the main inspiration for their collection. And you can clearly see Morocco’s color palettes and fabrics in their fashion. And this shit turned out to be dope af. I must admit that I have a secret fetish when it comes to look books. Like a lot of them pictures are so good that I want to pin them on my wall, just so I can look at it every day. For more than just one season.
Founded in 2010, Daily Paper is an Amsterdam based menswear label. Inspired by the founder’s own African heritage and passion for contemporary fashion an alternative path has been found, turning Daily Paper into a well-respected creator of authentic ready-to-wear garments. The menswear label is known for being affected by different African cultures incorporating these influences into modern design with a unique rugged character.
Daily Paper’s focus lies in the design of men’s fashion apparel that considers authenticity, with an emphasis on tailoring and an eclectic use of materials. The products are made to compliment the consumer’s passion for individuality and personal style. Devoted to quality garments, fine detailing, culture and overall great designs, Daily Paper stays true to their unique brand aesthetic. After travelling to Morocco for a photo-shoot in early 2014, the design team of Daily Paper got inspired by the culture, colors and fabrics of the Moroccan people. Upon their return they got back to the drawing board and created 2 collections for the SS15 collection. The first chapter is mainly focussed on the color palettes used by the Moroccan people and their use of fabrics, while the 2nd chapter shows influences from ancient and modern ‘Berber tribe’ elements. The collection is an ode to North African culture and is filled with well tailored staples such as: All over print T-shirts, nylon vests, classic bomber jackets, cotton rain coats, and all over embroidered jogger pants.
MBFWB is run by the Balkan connection. And I absolutely like it. Plus SADAK had by far (by faaaaaar) the best runway collection for FW15 (in Berlin). And it could have not been more Ghetto Chanel: Sadak’s designer Sasa Kovacevic is a Serbian-born fashion and stage/costume designer. He graduated in Fashion Design from Kunsthochschule Weißensee Berlin,Germany; he also studied Stage and Costume Design at the Academy of Art, Belgrade. In addition to designing for his own Fashion Label- SADAK, Sasa has also designed costumes and set design for several dance projects. And this shit better land in my wardrobe. The clothing is innovative and unique, while still incorporating distinctive elements from a variety of preceding periods and ethnic cultures.The various inspirations for the collections are essentially what makes them so superior in character. It’s not only the collection as a whole that comes with a motive, it’s the individual works themselves.
Always at the core of his universe (and as essential as the clothes themselves) are attitudes, moods and statements about individuality and independence. Equally important in SADAK’ s approach is the constant quest for innovation. The key elements stay the same: modern proportions, a constant research for fabrics and textures and above all the interplay of pure construction and new shapes with the body and psyche of the contemporary fashion and art. So a major HVALA for putting the right light on MBFWB!
