Style
Where the runway meets the street

At times it feels like a full-time job just keeping up to date with the news. Political events, wars, new music, new stuff to spend your money on — there’s more distractions than ever out there. That’s why, to save you time and energy, we’ve wrapped up the week’s best lookbook submissions in one handy space, so you can feast your eyes on them all in one.

Below you’ll find a selection of the week’s dopest lookbooks and editorials, featuring rising Amsterdam label Secluded’s latest collection, a sublime new look at the ever-conceptual 11 by Boris Bidjan Saberi’s new drop as well as hot, new steez from 3.PARADIS.

SMIB Calling x Secluded

Season: Spring/Summer 2017

Key Pieces: The subtly branded overalls and the slew of carefully crafted basics like simple crew neck T-shirts are all sublime.

Editor’s Notes: We first featured this rising Amsterdam label on our Under the Radar series. Now, Secluded is back with a collaboration of easy going staples with SMIB, and the striking lookbook is shot by young photographer ‘KimaAintShit

11 by Boris Bidjan Saberi

Season: Spring/Summer 2017

Key Pieces: The XL long-sleeve printed T-shirts might be pared-down but make enough of a statement with a strong serving of directional graphic treatment.

Editor’s Notes: 11 by Boris Bidjan Saberi’s experimental basics have become notorious for a street-minded focus fusing avant-garde cuts and, skate-inspired influences and a darkly urban aesthetic. This season, the brand has produced a gritty short film to showcase its latest collection “Disruptive Disciples” soundtracked by British rapper Danny Seth.

Coat of Arms Brooklyn

Season: Spring/Summer 2017

Key Pieces: The indigo blue Stussy hoodie is standout.

Editor’s Notes: Brooklyn skate wear outpost COA takes to the streets of Greenpoint for an SS17 editorial serving big industrial vibes. NYC-based model Briana King totes wears from Stussy, Raised By Wolves, Levis Skateboarding, Thrasher, The Quiet Life, Clae and Bank Records.

3.PARADIS

Season: Spring/Summer 2017

Key Pieces: The dark-navy velour track ensemble and graphic black hoodie are both bangers.

Editor’s Notes: 3.PARADIS is the brainchild of Emeric Tchatchoua and Raymond Cheung who respectively hail from Paris Hong Kong. The design-duo apply a cross-cultural vision to produce rotating hits of streetwear staples, all while deconstructing traditional ideas and reinventing conventions in menswear with no boundaries, and no rules.

DYNE

Season: Spring/Summer 2017

Key Pieces: The oil-slick printed long sleeve T-shirt is sublime and the orange tech jacket emblazoned with the brand’s logo is a solid feat for functional fashion.

Editor’s Notes: DYNE, the first men’s sportswear brand that uses NFC technology, creatively helmed by designer Chris Bevans continues to break new grounds by producing ultra-technical transitional garments. The brand’s latest collection is inspired by Chris’ travels through Japan and how much he’s drawn to the country’s rich landscapes. The result is an expansive collection of everyday staples that includes tracksuits and tech jackets, all engineered to inspire a new era of technical fashion with smart utility.

EV BRAVADO

Season: NEXTLVLHIGH PT.1

Key Pieces: The rhinestone long sleeve inscribed with NEXTLVLHIGH is pretty majestic.

Editor’s Notes: After helming Lease on Life Society as head designer for several years, Everard Best, better known as Ev Bravado struck out on his own last year. His new label expands the possibilities of the world’s most utilitarian fabric: denim. The latest collection continues a focus on more cohesive, message-based garments. Titled “NEXTLVLHIGH PT.1”, Ev Bravado’s latest drop will retail exclusively with GRAILED.

Les Incompétents

Season: Fall/Winter 2017

Key Pieces: The tailored garments in varying gradients of gray and beige are superbly functional.

Editor’s Notes: Despite its tongue-in-cheek moniker, there’s nothing incompetent about this Montreal-based label that manages to effortlessly combine a distinct industrial disposition with classically tailored pieces.

OLAF HUSSEIN

Season: Spring/Summer 2017

Key Pieces: Both the open-collar camp shirt and high-neck black T-shirt is are pretty appealing and easy to work into any considered wardrobe arsenal.

Editor’s Notes: OLAF HUSSEIN describes itself as a global citizen. The brand has always embraced different cultures in its trajectory thus far, but for its latest collection, the brand returned to its home country of the Netherlands. Its latest visuals are shot in a place bounded by the North Sea and covered in dunes. The result is a collection and harmonic visuals that re-imagine everyday staples with an outsider’s eye, bringing a new sensibility to easy going garments we consider with the familiarly of “home”.
