Perpetual techwear favorite Shadow Project is back with another directional collection. The fall collection utilizes over-dyed textiles that pull from the expert techniques of the parent brand Stone Island. All the winter outerwear bases are covered from bubble-goose jackets and insulated bombers to parkas and vests. There’s a heavy emphasis on zippers, pockets and practical details. The best iteration of this idea in the collection is a jacket with a large front zip-out pocket (large enough to store a laptop or other electronics).
Nanamica always puts out one of my favorite loobooks each season. Remember wearing North Face in high school? I feel like Nanamica is the grad school version of that look. You have the reassurance of proper technical features when it comes to the elements but the label also combines it with relaxed tailoring and great fabrics. If you want something versatile that you can work to work and on vacation, it’s hard to beat Nanamica.

Adidas continues its collaborative relationship with Rick Owens. This time around the sneaker looks more like a traditional Pro Model, but placed upon the same sole from the Geobasket/Rick dunk. This new sneaker is aptly named the Mastodon after the latest Rick collection by the same name. These won’t come cheap with the retail price hitting the $1000 mark, which makes these almost as expensive as mainline Rick. These are available at RISE and other boutiques.

Ghost in the Shell is one of my favorite animated movies ever. The cyberpunk thriller is filled with so many immersive elements from the incredible music to it’s unique art direction. One of the elements that made the film stand out so much was it’s incredible attention to detail when it comes to the landscapes and architecture in the film. Many shots, drawings, and stills from the film part of a new exhibition “Anime Architecture,” now on view at Berlin’s Museum for Architectural Drawing.

It’s important for new brands to establish themselves through not only the product design but the presentation of the clothes themselves. A new line based out of Toronto called Index grabs attention straight off the bat with it’s gritty, textured take on men’s wear. Combining a relaxed silhouette with details such as raw hems and asymmetrical hardware, the line strikes a balance between the technical and the natural. The line uses many Japanese fabrics but are made in Canada. Pieces will be produced in limited quantities and are releasing soon, although they are available for pre-order now through the Index website.
