2014 is shaping up to be a big year for adidas – having signed up a hysteria-inducing trinity of Pharrell, NIGO and Kanye West for collabs, the sportswear giant is sure to deliver some of the most anticipated releases of the year. First off the bat is Pharrell’s luxurious take on classic pieces from the brand’s archive – a leather track jacket is hardly the most practical of wardrobe pieces, but that’s unlikely to stop the collab going down a storm given Williams’ considerable fashion clout. Cop yours.
Speaking of rappers with the Midas touch when it comes to fashion, ASOS’s in-house line of razor sharp on-trend but incredibly affordable basics has expanded to include an overcoat that bears more than a passing resemblance to Kanye West’s signature camel mini-lapel overcoat. Seen on his iconic GQ cover shoot and worn by Lord Yeezus with everything from Jordans to Saint Laurent Chelsea boots, get yours here.
Fashion can be a breathtakingly silly world at times, and tongue in cheek stunts of self awareness like Anya Hindmarch’s “Fashion Flakes” cereal (a genuine collaboration with Kellogg’s) serve to remind us that clothing and style is not something that should be taken deathly seriously. On another note, where’s the Highsnob x Cheerios collab at? Cereal manufacturers of the world, inbox us – and get the cereal here.
While we’re always partial to a bit of luxe sneaker madness – see Buscemi’s blinged out leather hi tops and Margiela’s furry Kanye West x Chewbacca moon boots – there’s nothing quite like a banging silhouette matched with a comfortable sole and a super clean colorway from the big boys of athletic footwear. This “Wolf Grey” version of Nike SB’s Janoski Max sneaker is one of those sneakers – and is available right here.
The second hype-inducing product to drop from Monsieur Williams this week, the all-round creative’s latest venture – a fragrance based around the singer’s “Girl” smash hit – has been made available for preorder, and features artwork by none other than KAWS.
We’ve made no secret about our love for Stampd, with their Fall 2014 Lookbook being one of the strongest we’ve seen this season, and their entry to the denim game furthers their luxe take on streetwear by subtly (or not so subtly) appropriating Saint Laurent’s much-loved biker denim. Pre-distressed and presented in a stone washed finish, they’ll fit effortlessly alongside any of the label’s sporty yet avant-garde streetwear pieces. Get ’em here.
Nike’s space-age Free Orbit 2 sneaker makes a welcome return, with the sneaker’s already pretty unusual textured slip-on upper given a brash trio of polka dot-infused colorways. One of the sportswear leviathan’s more unusual designs for sure – which means it’ll more than likely be a smash hit amongst the sneakerheads – get yours here.
Our weekly ridiculous high fashion piece comes not from Raf Simons this time (is that a first?) but from Astrid Andersen and her bizarre combination of crass luxury (mink fur) and performance fabrics (neoprene – usually used in wetsuits!?). Mustard yellow and metallic blue collide on a curious parka-esque silhouette with panels made from dead mammals thrown in for good measure – get yours here.
While we might spend a whole lot of time looking at outrageously expensive jackets made from space age fabrics and the hides of dead animals, nothing beats a well executed, on-trend piece that comes at a super affordable price. Feathers’ side-zipped hoodie is one such piece – super clean, easy to wear and at a mere $39, proves that fashion isn’t just for rich people.
As if Nike’s hard as nails AM95 silhouette wasn’t tough enough, it’s been dropped in a super stealthy, super on-trend all black colorway. Cop it here.
