C.E. has been known to release a video previewing each season and spring/summer 2017 is no exception in that regard. This time the film taps directly into club culture with a rave scene playing out with models rocking outfits from the collection. The music comes by way of Trilogy Tapes (the track feature EMG “Mother Funk”. I always thought C.E was a streetwear label that paired perfectly with nightlife and this video confirms that fact. Look for items to drop on the C.E. website as well as stockists including END CLOTHING and Well Gosh.
While there are countless online boutiques serving the latest items from designer brands, it’s harder to find a carefully curated selection of past season items. For most hardcore collectors and enthusiasts, the only solution has been to scour eBay, international auction sites and online marketplaces on forums and Grailed. At the end of 2016, a new online boutique shop emerged called Huiben. The shop had a very focused lineup of designer goods, including some very covetable items ranging from Acronym to vintage Helmut Lang. Also refreshing was the fact that the shop felt so independent and carried both women’s and men’s products. The site is launching plenty of great new items at 2PM PST on Thursday, Jan 12, 2017.
I had a chance to speak with the founders of Huiben and get the inside scoop
Fans of Guerrilla Group’s offerings have been patiently waiting for the latest EYES&SINS collection from the collective. The FW16 collection is here and entitled THE SLEƎPER. The collection takes inspiration from a little known cold war Soviet clandestine operation explained on their site. The actual pieces themselves once again extend the mix of techwear and militarism we’ve gotten to know. Some of the more interesting pieces including beefed up winter noragi and also a technical apron piece similar to what you might see welder’s use.
While a couple pieces have been spotted on the site for sale, expect the entire collection to be available later tonight on the GFIRMG site.
Nike and Errolson Hugh have been busy this year, between the release of the Prestos and now this latest batch of ACG goods. In what might be the best collection to date, there are several key pieces that really take from the ACRONYM DNA and make it a bit more accessible and sports-oriented. Among them are the Alpine Jacket and the cargo pants which come in new DWR water-resistant fabric. You can shop the collection now online and at END.
A new mix has emerged from New York based producer MNTN. One of the main producers for r’n’b artist BOYSLASHFRIEND and rapper/singer GETOVERHER. For the mix MNTN lends his support to the protestors at Standing Rock. The mix itself is an audio journey through different genres and soundscapes featuring everything from J Dilla to Nine Inch Nails. In this highly politically charged year, this mix serves as a social commentary that borrows from protest music both new and old.
Grailed has become the de-facto marketplace to buy and sell men’s designer fashion online. The site has filled a gap in the market allowing a worldwide community to discover rare designer pieces. The site started selling clothes directly last year with the launch of the Grailed 100. Since then Grailed has continued to offer up exclusive hard to find items at under market price. The Grailed 100 will return with another set of collector worthy jawns launching tomorrow, Novemember 15 at Noon EST. Among them are some of the items shown in the lookbook shots here. Rarities such as the Raf Simons Nebraska crewneck, Helmut Lang vest and C.E Icon long-sleeve
No stranger to sublines, Jun Takahashi is ready to release the first collection of the shepherd. The collection is a more tailored and mature take on what Undercover usually does. The first collection is modeled by none other than Thom Yorke (a close friend of Jun’s).

Stone Island Shadow Project provides a video accompaniment to it’s Fall Winter 2016 collection. The production quickly cycles through the different looks featuring sweaters, hoodies, tees, jumpers and technical hard-shells. The video quickly flashes through the elements and provides a closer look at some of the innovative details/features on various garments. Perhaps trailblazer sci-fi author William Gibson described this clip best in his tweet “That Stone Island Shadow Project video that @erlsn just tweeted is as Neuromancery as anything I’ve seen”.
It’s hard to believe that Nike Lab and Jun Takahashi of Undercover have been collaborating on their line of running apparel Gyakusou for over six years. Through the process, the collection has continually evolved drawing from both Nike technology and Jun Takahashi’s punk sensibilities. While I felt the last few seasons have been lackluster, Gyaksou returns in fine form this year. The line features an fantastic color palette for fall and even sees a return of the infamous UC Giz print. The above video gives insight into the design process and great cropped views of the gear in motion.
Included are new items including a water-resistant LunarEpic Flyknit trainer, Aeroloft down jackets with removable sleeves. Launching November 10th online and at select NikeLab stockists online such as END and Dover St Market.
The collection is now available at Nike Lab.
