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.
I seriously asked myself: why am I always late with shit? I need to set my priorities right for 2k15 and post things in time and on time. But then again fashion can never be old news…
So during LCM Soulland was presenting their AW15 collection “Exotic Erotic”. Soullandwas founded in 2002 and is owned by designer Silas Adler and CEO Jacob Kampp Berliner. Its design principles and aesthetics have their origins in Scandinavian artisanship combined with a contemporary feel. Whilst always remembering its legacy, Soulland aims to push menswear forward in new directions.
Presenting two seasonal collections alongside two pre-collections every year, Soulland has received much acknowledgement from international press outlets such as The New York Times, Euroman, GQ, ID Magazine, Bangkok Post, The Guardian, Dazed & Confused and Selectism. Soulland designer Silas Adler was awarded Designer of the Year at DANSK Fashion Awards 2012. Open your eyes:
Central Saint Martins and Parsons student collections always make every other school’s fashion programs look like shit.
Same with Samuel Yang‘s graduate collection. Her interpretation of “the invisible and formless things, the aura that exists among people” with white symbolizing purity as a common theme and the silhouettes being sculptural but still clean is the shit. But when I saw the pictures I couldn’t take my eyes of the shoes. The highlight from the collection came in the form of a pair of minimalistic LED futurism sneakers.
If your brain didn’t get it yet: minimalistic LED futurism sneakers!!! So Yifang Wan and Samuel Yang collaborated on the so called Simulation shoes. This is so next level, it’s blowing me off my feet! And I remember being a kid having glowing shoes (like the kind that start glowing when you make a step) literally tap dancing in the dark just to make them glow. These shoes make my inner child super excited.
So if you have $499 left then feel free to shop the shoes right here. And since I want and need these, I am just gonna look on Ebay for a cheaper version of it…
I am so so late with this. So so late….but the fact that I find these Hardware LDN sunglasses still dope as fuck and am still willing to write about them just shows that they are timeless and not just a “one season kind of thing”.
Hardware LDN is a London based street wear brand established in 2012 by born and bred London girl Jessica Horwell. Growing up and experimenting with her own style, Jessica drew inspiration from all of the, anything but murky, depths of the city’s diverse subcultures – everything from the punks, to the rockers, to the skaters, to the metal heads, to the urbanites. Eventually, after years of merging together her favourite aspects, Jessica conceived Hardware LDN with the intention to create a brand that embodies her vision of London street fashion in its eclectic entirety.
Known for its accessories Hardware LDN launches it’s first pair of sunglasses that are dropping in Topshop in October 2014. By using a popular shape Jessica was able to make it true to theHardware LDN style by adding a signature attitude synonymous with the streets of London. The sunglasses are unique, edgy, bold, and in an array of industrial colours, which no doubt will become rapidly popular amongst her large celebrity fan base including the likes of Cara Delevingne, Rita Ora and Jessie J.
So as soon as the sun comes out again these sunglasses are the must thing to have! But besides that the clothing is so Ghetto Chanel and Couture Street that made my “Top 10 wishes for x-mas” list! Shop right here: www.hardwareldnstore.myshopify.com
For this post I tried to make something different and keep it as real and urban as possible. And maybe just because this was the most spontaneous #ootd shooting I have ever done. And in my mind I thought: If Karl can use his Ipad, then I can use my Iphone (basically that’s what I say all the time). So this is what happened:
Me and a friend of mine where walking down the city when we heard classical music coming out of this building. And so we entered it, I was literally like: My outfit is all Adidas everything, this building is fucking insane, let’s take these pictures! And btw this was the most relaxing shooting I have ever done.
And I am just obsessed with the Adidas shoes and sweater I am wearing. And if I wasn’t a fashion blogger I would say that I wear it almost every day, but this is probably not a part of the blogging etiquette.
So the sweater is from Nigo’s first Adidas collection named Originals by Nigo, who is inspired by vintage sportswear. And in case you don’t know who Nigo is, you should do some research! But most definitively you have seen his face somewhere! To make it super short: Nigo is a Japanese music producer and DJ who worked with Pharrell and the creator of the urban clothing line A Bathing Ape. And the Adidas collection is sooooo good! See yourself:Wanna shop the look? Here you go:
