As usual each season the Fall/Winter 2017 lookbook has been followed up with a detailed video. The video carefully previews details on many of the items from the collection. Included in the previews are pieces from the “Ghost” range as well as “Frost Finish”. While it does feel early to look at outerwear given the summer weather, this excellent preview will help Stone Island fans plan ahead for their purchases. Look for the collection to drop at stockiest including Slam Jam and Farfetch.
The team at Guerrilla Group has helped style the clothing in a new video from Nike. Director Yuen Hsieh partnered with famous singer and fashion icon Chris Lee in this stylized hi-tech visual. Taking inspiration from sci-fi and the idea of time travel, the short clip juxtaposes her character’s own life journey with 30 years of evolution in sneakers starting from the Air Max 1 to the new Nike Vapormax.
New York artist and photographer Jayne Lies has just released a visual for a remix of Tricky’s Black Steel.

Alien is one of my all-time favorite sci-fi franchises and I’m getting excited about the release of Alien Covenant. This new trailer is perhaps the best look at the Ridley Scott directed film. The trailer shows a deeper more of Covenant’s crew and the nature of their mission as well as a better look at the Alien planet and the Xenomorph there. Have a feeling this will be worth the wait for the May 19th release.
C.E. has been known to release a video previewing each season and spring/summer 2017 is no exception in that regard. This time the film taps directly into club culture with a rave scene playing out with models rocking outfits from the collection. The music comes by way of Trilogy Tapes (the track feature EMG “Mother Funk”. I always thought C.E was a streetwear label that paired perfectly with nightlife and this video confirms that fact. Look for items to drop on the C.E. website as well as stockists including END CLOTHING and Well Gosh.
Stone Island Shadow Project provides a video accompaniment to it’s Fall Winter 2016 collection. The production quickly cycles through the different looks featuring sweaters, hoodies, tees, jumpers and technical hard-shells. The video quickly flashes through the elements and provides a closer look at some of the innovative details/features on various garments. Perhaps trailblazer sci-fi author William Gibson described this clip best in his tweet “That Stone Island Shadow Project video that @erlsn just tweeted is as Neuromancery as anything I’ve seen”.
Arco Maher has a ton of Stone Island. The collection spans over 160 pieces. Dazed put together a short clip to showcase some of his best pieces.

The visual is accompanied by a soundtrack by by Jesse James Solomon, whose other work can be heard here. If you’re a fan of the Italian sportswear label, consider this a must watch.
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.
