I’ve been a fan of the unique approach Sasquatchfabrix brings to design for some time. They focus a lot on fabrics and bridging traditional Japanese styles with more modern concepts. Their latest collection is for spring/summer 2019 and titled ‘NANPOU’ which translate to southbound. The offering includes a mix of traditional styles like the hoari coat, the noragi jacket and hakama trousers. The styling incorporates those styles and and mix them with bright floral prints, accessories and easy summer items. Bringing looks for men and women, in a mix of tonal tans and olives alongside pops of bright reds and purples, there’s no lack of contrast available. The collection also shows off upcoming collaborations with the likes of Suicoke and Asics.  Look for items to drop in the next coming weeks at stockists including Farfetch and SSENSE.

Take a look at all the looks from the collection below.

While the Nike React Element 87 has received much more praise and attention (deservedly so) than the Element 55, this is the first interesting model to come down utilizing the base model. The striking grid pattern is the first thing you notice followed by the colors which take inspiration from Nike’s original Escape Pack that dates back to 1988.  . The colors used take inspiration from the Windrunner, Lahar and Air Force III from that pack, but give it a modern feel with the nylon upper. Size? even shot a custom editorial to go with the release.  The retail for these is  £115 USD and be available on November 29 from the Size? webshop and app.

With the Air Force 1, Nike has done literally thousands of colorways over the years, it’s now bringing back one of the most memorable. During the original release 12 years ago, the Cocoa Snake became an instant classic for fans of the sneaker. It’s back now in a recreation of the style, with black and white snakeskin along the toe, cap, heel and lace panels. The quality on the re-release looks like it was worth the wait, unfortunately it seems like the release is limited to Japan at the moment. Look for it at Japanese retailer atmos and other Nike retailers in the country on November 16.
