Levi’s® Commuter™ Follow Up

BLOG-8847.jpg

Earlier in Spring, Levi’s® introduced their first Commuter™ line for women (read my original post here). Promising functional clothing for cyclists, the Levi’s® Commuter™ collection has performance and iconic style. Featuring water-resistant fabric, 3M™ reflective details, and deeper back pockets for secure storage, I'm following up to show you what they look like after two seasons of wear and really give my stamp of approval. I love when denim starts to wear in, and I'm pleased that the quality of the zipper, pockets and button held up like new. Although I can only speak about the wear of their denim, they have outerwear, pants, and tops and if the shorts are any reflection of the rest of the line, the other pieces won't disappoint. Shop the entire Commuter collection here

FINAL_IMG_3333.jpg

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to photograph the official images for the Puma x ICNY Faas 100 "Heartbreaker" shoe that released this past weekend. The great guys at ICNY trusted me to create their vision for the very first shoe collab they have ever done and I'm very thankful they allowed me to be apart of this exciting step. I'm happy to hear that they sold out this weekend and the next round will be available to the public on Valentines day!

Up-and-coming label 3•W•Y presents a slew of motorcycle and street-inspired goods for its Spring 2014 collection. Sticking to a dark and edgy aesthetic, this latest collection sees the label shun traditional spring colors for a palette that is almost entirely black. The cream of the crop from this collection are the Embossed Moto Jacket, the Leather Moto Vest, and the Ruche pants. The Embossed Moto features a midnight navy wool body with black embossed leather shoulder yokes and removable sleeves. The Leather Moto Vest is a riff on the classic moto jacket and features a cowhide leather body with an elongated embossed leather hem. The Ruche Pants are 3-W-Y’s take on luxe sweatpants and feature a cotton sateen body with ruched lower legs for a unique, tapered look.

A Ma Maniére Announces the Official Launch of It’s Inaugural Fashion Collection

A Ma Maniére Announces the Official Launch of It’s Inaugural Fashion Collection

 

A Ma Maniére is proud to present its eponymous cut and sewn label designed by Denesh Group. The New York City-based fashion house showcases its signature aesthetic in the inaugural 2014 Fall/Winter collection by marrying contemporary silhouettes with high end materials such as Italian lambskin, brushed nylon, and polished gold Riri zippers. Like its name, A Ma Maniére presents luxury for the individual, not the crowd

The namesake collection builds upon the pillars, values and aesthetics that have been established by the recently opened A Ma Maniére brick-and-mortar imprint in Atlanta. Translating elements from the shop’s elevated in-store experience and build-out, the pieces emphasize design details and offer a premium selection of leathers and textiles that characterize the entire collection.

Cinch bottom jogger pants see an elevated approach via panels of leather pieces that run along the inside leg inseam. Elsewhere, the tonal, black-on-black aesthetic is carried over to elongated outerwear pieces that pair hits of leather across the shoulders with black fabric along the body. The collection is rounded out by tees that see hits of tonal mesh paneling that runs across the lower hem, effectively providing an elongated cut as well as a subtle tech fabric infusion.

The special collection is now available exclusively through A Ma Maniére’s brick-and-mortar location as well as through their online website at http://a-ma-maniere.com

Independent Currency

Wish Atlanta is excited to announce their latest project, a collaboration with none other than adidas Originals and their new showcase silhouette, the SL Loop Runner. Dubbed "Independent Currency", Wish Atlanta infused elements of the elusive and rare $2 Bill, paying homage to America's Independence Day. The toe cap, eyelets, and pull tab add great contrast with hits of dark green and mint suede. One of the first releases of its kind, the SL Loop "Independent Currency" will be available exclusively at Wish on July 4th, and other top-tier adidas Originals accounts on July 11th.
