Japanese label Neighborhood kills the ceramics game with their series of beautifully crafted incense chambers adorned with guns, crows, skulls and other cheery motifs. Now turning their hand to kitchenwear, the biker inspired label have released these sort-of-cute but sort-of-really-bleak salt and pepper shakers. Guaranteed to sell out quick, so if you want to really flex your knowledge of Japanese menswear the next time you have people over for dinner, make sure you cop swiftly.
Korean label Juun.J’s dark, streetwear inspired aesthetic may be in line with the current crop of luxe-urban brands, but the designer’s audacious visuals and humorous themes are far removed from the baroque, abstract collections of his peers. This oversized tee boasts larger than life screenprints and tongue in cheek pop culture references for a irreverant, OTT spin on the graphic tee.
Common Projects’ beautiful, luxurious take on classic footwear silhouettes continues with these expertly made suede slip ons. While the luxury footwear market is starting to become crowded with new brands, the Italian label remain at the top of the minimalist pile thanks to their no nonsense, unchanging commitment to recreating classic styles at beautiful high quality.
Late American pop artist Keith Haring has undoubtedly made his mark on the world of street culture – the artist’s work featuring in limited runs from Supreme, Obey and Reebok and his youthful, hand drawn illustrations have influenced scores of creatives. A retrospective on the late artist’s work, this latest tome from Rizzoli includes a wealth of unpublished photographic and written material.
Amid the gaudy luxury sneaker madness and technological arms race that has gripped the world of footwear the past few seasons, Boston running brand New Balance have quietly remained true to their roots, with season on season of high quality, dependable and classically styled athletic shoes. Still maintaining a manufacturing base in the USA and UK, New Balance have reissued their vintage 577 runner on its 25th anniversary, with the unbeatable combination of mesh, suede and supportive soles executed in the sneaker’s OG colorways.
Vans plough on with big release after big release, and following their previous collaborative endeavours with Stampd, Odd Future, Opening Ceremony and Peanuts, the west coast skate label have enlisted British department store Liberty’s iconic fabric library for a set of skate shoes sporting a beautiful fabric that are sure to be a smash hit with skaters and regular people alike.
ASOS’s in-house line of affordable, fashionable basics contains this elongated side zippered tee – neatly on-trend and an easy, readily available way of adopting the minimalist sportswear look without breaking the bank or stressing over limited edition releases.
There’s something oddly refreshing about Italian knitwear manufacturer Missoni – while their high fashion peers are toying with avant-garde, left-field themes and aesthetics, the Varese brand remains doggedly committed to its heritage woven products. The label’s latest collaboration sees the house’s signature zig-zag fabrics placed onto a variety of hi and low tops from the Converse archive, for an unusual take on the normally simply colorblocked sneakers.
With marble being one of the most beautiful and extravagent materials on the planet, it is only fitting that luxury fashion label MSGM have adorned this Italian made shirt with a luxe print inspired by the stone.
At the other end of the menswear spectrum, Topman have jumped on the marble bandwagon with a luxe-looking headwear piece that you can purchase without having to sacrifice a few months’ food or rent. Another example of a large fast fashion retailer providing on-trend, highly wearable clothing that is both affordable and accessible.
