The shadowy multi-national team at GFIRMG (also known as Guerrilla Group)  have been busy at work on the second collection of EYES&SINS. They’ve been teasing the arrival of new product  through social media channels and they’ve put out  their latest video communication ‘OUTER SCALE /OCULAR & LIGHT. This short clip provides further intel on what you can expect in the new batch of graphic tees.

The graphic tees now come in revised boxier cut and continue to evolve the cyber militaristic  aesthetic of past seasons. As always the visual presentation is top notch through and through (from the presentation of the website to the tags on tees)  . The collection includes 8 new designs (6 tees and 2 tank tops) and is available through the GG store.

cavempt fw 14 2 C.E FW14 1st Delivery

C.E has gained a cult following after several strong seasons of graphic-based streetwear. Taking off-beat themes on their clothing has become a trademark and the brand continues to pull from everything from dytopian sci-fi novels to military replications and net-art style imagery. Without much announcement or fanfare, C.E dropped a small range of items from their Fall/Winter 2014 collection. Familar styles such as the ‘simulation shirt’ and the usual coaches jacket and t-shirts and crewnecks make their return. Prices seem to have also dropped a little bit compared to past seasons. Definitely curious to see how the rest of the collection shapes up.

Available now online at Cavempt.

undercover backpack M6B01 Undercover M6B01 Backpack

undercover backpack M6B01 4 Undercover M6B01 Backpack

While accessories aren’t the first thing to come to mind when you think of Undercover, UC has had a great track record of putting out standout backs, wallets and jewelry in the past. I really like the standard backpack model they used and the camo packs from the ‘Less but Better’ collection are still grails for me.

Haven has received a shipment of the new M6B01 rucksack in grey and black. The nylon packs look durably constructed with a nylon body and leather finishing at the bottom of the pack. Multiple side pockets enable you to organize and stash all the things you need on a daily basis. You can find these over at Haven for $675 USD.

schott one star perfecto nbhd 1 Schott x Neighborhood One Star/Cl Jacket

When it comes to leather motorcycle jackets Schott is the de-facto standard. The makers of the original Perfecto model have teamed up with Neighborhood to deliver this excellent One Star Leather Jacket. The quality of the leather looks incredibly on this jacket that is sure to last for years and continue to be a workhorse item in your closet. Details include Talon zippers (which are no longer standard issue on regular Schott mainline Perfectos), custom branded buttons and a custom lining. All this doesn’t come cheap at a retail price of $2315 USD but if you have stacks burning a hole in your pocket, you gotta respect a jawn like this when you see it.

Available at Haven

From the same creative forces who launched Silent Whisper last year comes Eyes & Sins, a T-shirt label which compliments the Silent Whisper collection. The two brands exist under the Guerilla Group umbrella and were created by the overarching creative agency GFIRMG . The full-service agency has members scattered worldwide and they tackle multi-disciplinary projects from art direction to web development. The above video entitled LUDOVICO TECHNIQUE 001 was released by the group with this accompanying message.

 E.\S’ primary tasks are idea consultation, blueprinting and garment production. Virtually all information about the unit is highly classified and details about their objectives and operations are generally not publicly available.

slide 07 EYES & SINS New T Shirt Release

Since I saw Silent Whisper online, I knew it was something special and have been more than happy with the pieces I own by them. I wrote a review of the accessories previously HERE.  I do have a Eyes & Sins T-shirt which I wear regularly. It’s held up awesome over multiple washes but what I like most about it is the soft cotton and the slim and long fit of the t-shirt. It’s nice to feel a T-shirt that was cut and sewn instead of just printed on a generic blank. Eyes & Sins released four new designs my favorite of is the Transmutation T-shirt below.

You can purchase the tees for $65 on the Guerilla Group webshop. See the rest of the T-shirt designs after the jump

tim coppens tri blend sweatshirt Tim Coppens Cotton Blend Sweatshirt

Tim Coppens is one of the most exciting menswear designers to emerge out of New York in the past several years and his recent Fall/Winter 2014 showing may have been his strongest yet. His experience as a sportswear designer for RLX has helped him carve out a unique aesthetic with his namesake brand, one that melds technical functionality with polished luxurious textiles.

I liked this sweater when it was featured in his Spring/Summer runway show and its  even more impressive now that I get a chance to see the details up-close. The perforated holes in the leather and athletic style cuffs (and the fact that it’s made in the USA) set this apart from most of the sweatshirts out there. I love crewnecks both in the spring and in colder weather as they’re so easy to thrown on and take care of.  Definetly recommend this piece and I’d suggest wearing this over jeans/sweatpants or classed up with slim-cut trousers.

Available at Mr.Porter, $695

raf simons ss14 2 Raf Simons SS14 Releases

Select items from Raf Simons Spring/Summer 2014 season have dropped over at Très Bien Shop. The selection includes an assortment of pop-art inspired graphic tees and new bright colorways of seasonal sneaker styles (The Velcro highs and Holographic lows). I enjoyed the presentation of SS14 on the Paris runway and I also liked what Raf did in tandem with Sterling Ruby for Fall/Winter 2014.

C.E (CAVEMPT) has just released a video showcasing items from their Spring/Summer 2014 collection. The visual features a variety of cropped detail shots of the pieces in slow motion. To me it really gave off the feeling of what attending a C.E presentation in person must be like. The music and visual effects serve as useful additions; adding atmosphere to the clip’s otherwise straightforward style. It’s nice to see the C.E looks head to toe like this in such a clear video (particularly in contrast to prior videos C.E has put out). I definitely enjoyed seeing this video much more than most ‘fashion’ videos out there. 

C.E is a hard brand to pin down as it really stands at the intersection of all these disparate influences. The quality of the garments keep it from entering gimmicky territory. I got to check these Spring pieces when they were samples were on display at the brand’s New York Showroom and I hope to share snaps from that with you shortly.

You can start purchasing select spring pieces now directly from C.E’s webshop. I’ve listed my personal favorite pieces below:

komakino fall winter 2014 main KOMAKINO FW14 Collection

KOMAKINO delivers more strong pieces for Fall/Winter 2014 with a collection inspired by industrial and electronic music. The usual brand signatures are here : graphic detailing, color-blocking and military themes. I first became interested in KOMAKINO after seeing their well-executed MA-1s at Opening Ceremony and have been tracking the brand since. I feel it’s a brand that actually rides the line between high fashion and streetwear quite well and in this regard it reminds me of Nom de Geurre (RIP).  The standout outerwear pieces this time around are the leather trench and MA-1 bomber. While I’m admittedly sick of fashion camo,  KOMAKINO did do a respectable job of remixing the German Army (Camo Flecktarn).

c e x beauty youth 2014 spring summer collection 3 C.E x Beauty & Youth SS14 Collection

When it comes to straight forward streetwear, few brands are doing it better than C.E right now. I’m happy to own a handful of pieces from the label and I’ve mostly found the quality, fit and detailing to be best in class when it comes to streetwear basics such as tees, hoodies and crewnecks. They paired up with fellow Japanese label Beauty & Youth for a small capsule collection of items featuring an ‘eyes’ motif.

The release date for the capsule collection is Jan 28 at Beauty & Youth stores around Japan. If interested in finding out more about C.E this interview with co-founder Toby Feltwell is a must-read.
