When street meets art and turns it into dope ass fashion, than I can point, scream and shout: That’s my kind of shit!
CPxArt is a young French fashion brand by German designers, who are focusing to put art and fashion together and let the creativity rule over every single piece. Influenced by Paris streetwear vibes, the label created their motto “God is Art” and “Art is Life” and put their creativity in bomber jackets as significant pieces for their very first collection. And since this is not enough: every product is hand-painted and produced in Europe.
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
2k15 is coming to an end. But Seoul based brand Manfromus is leaving it with a big bang.
This modern street men’s clothing brand is wowing with its experimental designs, combining street wear with social awareness. WEAR, SHARE, LIVE is the motto. The street bohemian touched clothing with clean and modern design is everything I am looking for in fashion. And I am kinda glad I am leaving this year with this dope collection on my dash. I am ready for 2k16 and for more Manfromus to come…
Mon dieu. Winter decided to not show up this year and global warming is scaring the shit out of me. Like are you fucking serious?! Especially when you can’t wear winter gear like e.g. Andrew Coimbra.
Andrew Coimbra, currently living in Toronto, Canada, began his career in Fashion Design by studying Material Art & Design at the Ontario College of Art & Design University before moving onto The School of Fashion Studies at George Brown College. Experience working with prominent Canadian designers Pink Tartan and Philip Sparks proved to be a solid base for his enriching internship with internationally renowned label Proenza Schouler, in New York City.
Andrew defines his aesthetic as cool, refined ease. Strengthened by inspiration drawn from contemporary art and youth culture, combined with an emphasis on tailoring and a focus on fine fabrics, his work offers a new approach to the world of menswear.
For the Fall2015 collection – titled “sorry, not sorry: a Canadian dilemma” – Andrew wanted to explore the subtleties of the Canadian social and physical landscape, using aerial perspectives of icebergs, extreme cold weather mapping patterns, and our notorious use of the word “sorry” as major sources of influence. The playful prints are contrasted with slick fabric choices, and an almost military-meets-thug aesthetic, ushering in a fresh, new attitude; a Canadian confidence. Check FW 15 here:
Ok, so I have been away cuz I really wasn’t feeling that good. But that doesn’t mean that I am not watching my followers. I. see. you. and. I. watch. you. And I mean a couple of people, brand and labels but this time it’s all about SYNTHETIK. Although this brand has a dark touch to it, the collections are always shining bright. SYNTHETIKis basically a label for any boy or girl having any age, at any time and at any place. So clothes for any given moment in life, well, maybe a more melancholic moment in life. But everybody needs some black clothes every now and then. However, I am still watching this brand and expect you guys to post some more on your Facebook page. Thx. Bye.

Being sick sucks. Not being able to focus on blogging sucks even more. So I will just leave this post with the words of Japanese designer SoshiOtsuki and crawl back into my bed (and probably stay there until spring). So for his AW15 collection he says: “Start my work is the fact that my father was the sight that carved wooden weapons. I knew that my father is a ninja.” And these fashion pieces actually are reminding me of a modern day ninja, who can actually compete for any best streetstyle outfit at the same time. So arigato for this:
