I’ve selected some key spring outerwear that’s ideal for spring’s rainy days and milder weather. These options vary in style and price point but should offer a good range of options for just about anyone. First off we have the Arc’Teryx mainline Arc’Tery Tenquille Hoodie. This zippered style is made from a Technical weave nylon and comes in this great teal color. It’s available for $175 here.

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.

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.
More images after the jump.
IDOL has established itself as one of the most interesting men’s shops in New York. The Williamsburg based store recently took some time to shoot an editorial with pieces from it’s Rick Owens FW16 buy. The editorial mixes pieces from the ‘Mastodon’ collection.

One of the most prominent marketplaces for men’s clothing Grailed has been making big moves of late. They launched an app earlier this month and today they launched a the Grailed 100.

Everything from Rick Owens, to Saint Laurent to older tees from streetwear stalwarts like C.E, Supreme and Palace. Some items have already sold out but there’s still plenty of items at various price points. Check it out over at the Grailed 100.
Leather jacket season is almost upon us and the gawd Rick Owens has been the best doing it for some time now. You may recall our leather jacket buying guide from last year where I went through the essential things to consider before pulling the trigger on a showpiece leather. One of my favorite repeat styles from Rick is the moto-neck instarsia. It’s minimal with clean lines and an excellent cropped fit. This is one of those pieces that the internet doesn’t do justice to, but it will definitely hurt your wallet. Luckily it’s currently on sale at Farfetch at 50% off. Lookout for me to do another leather jacket review in the coming weeks.
Adidas and Rick enter into their third season of collaborations with this new entry for the Spring/Summer 2015 season. Similar in nature and materials to last year’s tech runner, the shoe switches to a striking Springblade sole. The sneakers are a bit sleeker and lower than the former tech runners. Part of me wishes the upper on these was chunkier but the all black colorway definitely grew on me and stand out as the best model of the three.
All three versions of the sneakers are available now at Oki-Ni.
Future in Saint Laurent, Gucci Mane in Thom Browne
A$AP Rocky in C.E , Drake in Rick Owens
Kanye West in Damir Doma, Lil’B in Undercover & Dirty ass vans
Rap and fashion are increasingly interlinked to the point where it seems every other rap verse namedrops at least 2 designer names. I collaborated with English illustrator Rebel Youth on these sketches of various rappers in various gear from current SS14 and FW14 collections. Time will tell if any of these outfits will come to fruition in the real life but hope you find the idea of Guwop in TB or Lil’B wearing Undercover as amusing as we did.
Adidas and Rick Owens team up again on their second collaborative sneaker model the Tech Runner. The first release was a love it or hate it affair and it looks like the same will hold true this time. Inspiration this time around comes via the B-2 Stealth Bomber, and you can see these angular lines transalted on the EVA midsole. I actually prefer these to the original model though the grey suede/sand colorway stands out as the one I’d wear from the bunch. Expect these to release later this summer so look out for updates here on their release.
