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
BYUNGMUN SEO is a visually provocative menswear ready-to-wear line, which makes me ready to wear some of the pieces from SS15.
It displays an unconventional construction of garment that often plays with creative pattern cutting and pushes the boundaries of traditional fashion and silhouette.The philosophy of this label is that fashion needs to be functional first of all,but also conceive a style that reflects the mood and state of mind: poetic,sensitive and melancholic. The inspiration exudes a sense of discreet chic, the essence of timeless style, drawn on a monochromatic, poetic expression through experimental pattern cutting. The limit of colour on this brand (Palette of black, grey and touches of pure whites)allows to mix all pieces with each other and to create fresh,personalized looks.It also can accentuate the contrast of high textured fabric showing diversity and harmony.The intelligent combination of high end fabric with a variety of other materials gives the brand a luxurious and exclusive look and feel introduces the chic yet, contrasting fabrics is draped and layered to create very distinctive and sombre clothes to clad a twenty-first century gentleman. The Byungmun Seo SS15 collection takes cues from the street while still highlighting serious tailoring (and a knack for unconventional draping). The silhouettes range from hyper-gathered to sleek and planar. Seo incorporates a mix of symmetrical and asymmetrical silhouettes, and pays respect to pounding summer heat by featuring cropped trousers, jackets, and sweaters. In true Byungmun Seo fashion, the creative pattern-cutting is the absolute star of the collection. Outerwear looks as if it was carved from wood as its structures curve, tuck, peek out, or even disalign with one another. Each edge in its pattern-cutting is the new beginning of the collection’s inspirational rebels. Then, drop-crotch cropped pants and long, loose shorts proudly assert drapes scoping from the planar and angular to über-complex gathering, and almost feminine, wafting numbers. From casual, urban-inspired styles to much more formal attire (and even a jumpsuit), this collection’s considered it all.
Let’s cut the bullshit for today, because it’s been a loooong day and I am tired as fuck. I am blessed but stressed and am seeking my bed so bad. And so ETQ Amsterdam is fulfilling all my needs right now by keeping random questions about their background and who they are short and simple:
WE COULD TELL YOU ALL KINDS OF STORIES, BUT THAT’S NOT WHO WE ARE. WE’RE HONEST. CLEAN. TIMELESS. EXCEPTIONAL. AND SO IS OUR PRODUCT.
On point! And not only the designs of ETQ Amsterdam‘s sneakers are dope is fuck, but so is their attitude. And they don’t need all that blah blah blah, because the sneakers speak for themselves. So serious question: can I like seriously have these and live? I swear these are made for me to walk in. So check out my favorites, but don’t forget there is more on www.etq-amsterdam.com:
Good night y’all and I bet I will be dreaming about wearing these sneakers.
Like this is basically how the year started: with a big bang and it’s gonna be a good one. Trust me when I say that! 2k15 is about to be epic.
Especially when you start a blog off with a designer with designs being one of a kind: Alexandra Louise Champion Hackett is a mens sportswear designer, practicing in Melbourne, Australia, who’s label A.L.C.His kinda new to the fashion scene, but will stay there forever:
In addition to working on her graduate collection, A.L.C.H. operates as a freelance practitioner and collaborator, focusing on developing her unique textile-based aesthetic and applying it to various formats.
A.L.C.H. is beginning to become known for her work appropriating found objects (varying from caution tape to banana peels, NASA space foil to astroturf) into planar surfaces. Through the recontextualization of these textiles, A.L.C.H. fashions wearable garments and accessories, whilst looking into the subversion of the sportswear genre. And you can see all of that in her SS15 collection “Shoplifters“: You can’t say this shit is not epic. You just can’t!
Last post for this year.
And there is no looking back! And no need to look back. It’s been an amazing year with a whole lot of new and upcoming designers, fashion weeks and partying and the list goes on and on and on. So I wanna take the chance to say THANK YOU to every single reader and supporter!
They see me rolling, they hating, they trying to catch me riding dirty…
That’s exactly how I felt when I had the chance to test drive Jaano. Never heard of it? Well, that’s what I am here for.
Founded by the two friends Jaan Hofmann and Tino Hoffrichter, Jaano is offering scooter sharing to everybody living in Hamburg (and it will probably spread out to your city soon, so just watch out). It’s the perfect solution for traffic and transportation in urban areas, since you can rent the scooter for as much time as you need and just park wherever. No strings attached, because you pay for the time you use the Jaano scooter and wherever you find one of these you can hopp on and off anytime. The concept is simple and genius at the same time! You just have to register (and of course have a driver’s licence and stuff like that) and off you go.
And since I am a huge fan of it, I did put on my good outfit and got myself up on that Vespa Primavera 50 4T 4V. Take a look (a little posing never hurt nobody)! VROOM VROOM! The idea is dope as fuck and you will definitely gonna catch me riding on this in Hamburg, so make sure you likeJaano on Facebook!
