This piece is one of the best I’ve seen from Stone Island this scene. An awesome olive color way that’s the result of a garment dyeing process . The parka comes in a performance fabric made up of an outer opaque light nylon layer laminated to a very fine breathable, water and wind resistant inner membrane. The seams have been thermo-taped for optimal water resistance. Along with the removable storm hood and zip fastening system this is a strong choice for even heavy-duty rainfall. It’s available over at HAVEN.
As a part of its spring/summer 2017 collection, Visvim offers up this low-cut moccasin. The Miliseet Shaman-Folk features a TPU heel stabilizer and hand-stitched bead detailing. The shoe is constructed of quality suede with a distinct fringe detail. The sneaker is available in Camel, Navy and Red at Idol Brooklyn.
Nike continues it’s rollout of the VaporMax. April 27 is the next big release day as the brand is dropping two colors exclusive to NikeLab.

Get it online through the NikeLab site this week.
I’ve selected some key spring outerwear that’s ideal for spring’s rainy days and milder weather.

When it’s hot out this summer, you’re going to want an easy go to pair of shorts. For some reason this is one of the toughest product categories to shop for but NikeLab has just put out this no-fuss woven short. From a cotton blend twill with an adjustable waistband and side zip pockets. Available in two color ways from END.
Y-3 is supposed to represent the gap between Yohji’s signature design and sportswear. This trouser from the current season exemplifies this philosophy with an excellent poplin trouser. Constructed of lightweight cotton , the pants feature four-pocket styling with zippered expansion panels. The cropped cut with adjustable cuffs allow the wearer to adjust the width of the opening with ease. You can find these over at SSENSE.
Sneakers with sock uppers were trending pretty heavily last year. While the look got a little stale, Adidas has brought out a new model that might breathe new life into the genre. The primeknit material is one of Adidas’ most popular considering it’s light weight and comfort. This upcoming model boasts a seamless upper in marled burgundy, a bright red accent at the heel tab, a sock-like collar. The same UltraBOOST heel counter, full-length BOOST midsole, and Continental outsole that appear on ultra boost lows re-appear here. Look out for new release info on the sneaker coming soon.
Matches Fashion have just linked up with Rick Owens for a new feature. In the piece Owens gives insight into his surprising morning routine “When Rick Owens is at home in Paris, he rises at 8am, drinks a green juice prepared by his personal chef and heads to his office. The commute is short: he simply ascends the stairs of the five-storey mansion he shares with his wife and business partner Michele Lamy. Their home is located in the 7th arrondissement, an establishment neighbourhood known for government buildings, embassies and old money, and his office is a large, open space that overlooks the gardens of the Ministry of Defence – an overgrown and ever-changing view that lends a rural feel to Owens’s enclave.”
The rest of the interview touches on everything from his approach to design, to how his office is set-up. Read the interview article HERE.
