Greek 2 Chic: Match Maker, Match Maker
I think the web just exploded with new pieces from all the top streetwear designers. I’m bout to show yall some pieces that are gonna make Jeff Goldblum look less fly. Have your pencils ready:
Around the Way T-Shirt by Jeepney + NIKE Spring 2009 Collection Dunk Hi. This is a match made in heaven!! The perfect sneaker for the perfect chick! The shirt is extremely official, with the drip effect complementing the simple text. The sneaks….damn. Can you even see the detail?! Ridiculoso! Colorway is awesome — an all around good match.
Google Eyes Crewneck by Alife + NIKE Spring 2009 Collection Tailwind. Look what we have here! Crewnecks and Tailwinds go together like T-Pain and Autotune — a classic combination. First, Alife is a heavyweight authority in streetwear. This design is definitely eye-catching (no pun intended). Complementing the fit, Nike Tailwinds always emit retro-swag. The tonality is sheer dopeness, gray on gray, with red and black accents.
Colette x Virgil Abloh Athletic T-Shirt + NIKE Spring 2009 Collection Dunk Hi. Now, I have been holdin on to this Colette joint for over a month. This is what I would call, a hi-street-end fashion mashup. Colette (a Parisian designer label) hooks up with Virgil Abloh (a young Black designer from the Midwest) to drop this rope-chain-esque tee. THEN, you got the gingham print Dunks to smooth it all out. Pattern meets Posh meets pure freshness.
The Barbarella T-Shirt by Rise Up + NIKE Spring 2009 Collection Dunk Hi. You have to appreciate the intensity of the colors! It really creates a nice look when you place bold hues on a soft pallet. The shirt by Rise Up is extremely underground (available at Karmaloop), and has a Futura-vibe about it — I dig it. Then, the dunks do exactly that….Slamdunks the outfit on home. Start to finish, a good match.
The Each One Teach One Shirt by Alphanumeric + The CoolBreeze Vader by Greedy Genius. You CANNOT get more streetwear savvy than this pair right here. Alphanumeric is my sh*t, I’ve been rockin it since 10th grade. They reemerged with some really fashion-forward concepts, focusing on minimalist concepts. Greedy Genius, in my opinion, is the next Supra-esque phenomenon. They have crazy colorways, architectural yet classic construction, and truly do the hi top sneaker justice.
Brick Logo Tee by Gold Coin + ADIDAS x Jeremy Scott Sneaker Collab (Feb 2009). DAMN. That’s all she wrote! The tee is live as hell cuz it captures subliminal messaging — no gold on it, but you’re definitely thinking about GOLD! THEN, the kicks put the game on pause!! The tongue ALONE is enough to make haters get the “upset-stomach face”. I need these in my life, E-ME-JITLEE. (Bet u didn’t even see the gold lace jewel! Oh, the subtleties..)
