THIS JUST IN…THE THOM BROWNE FOR SUPREME COLLECTION IS FAKE, I REPEAT FAKE. This is NOT AN OFFICIAL COLLAB. Thom Browne came to speak this evening at the Katie Murphy Amphitheater located on the Fashion Institute of Technology’s campus and quickly denied the collaboration. He specifically said that there was no official collab and that Supreme simply bought Thom Browne oxfords wholesale! We are interested to see what becomes of this…
NOTE: Urban Takeout is not taking sides in this matter, we are just making sure that you the Urban Graduate stay informed. Urban Takeout, we got you covered!!
SUEDE is apparently becoming hot this season with sneaker designers. It’s an interesting choice because it has strong weaknesses like the ability to become dirty and absorb liquids quickly, but it’s also soft probably making for a comfortable wear. Not to mention it just looks more luxurious. Here are some S/S 2010 offerings…
Richard Chai relatively new to the menswear fashion scene has already made some major moves since the release of his own line in 2004; he has already completed capsule collections for Topman and Target. His newest collaboration, supposedly set to drop this January is between he and Keds. These understated yet eye-catching hi-tops feature a single zipper fastener running vertically up the front to secure the shoes, reminiscent of the new Rick Owens trainer redux. There are still holes for laces if you want to lace them up, but I ask you this question…..why would you?
Check out his Spring 2010 collection here.
What did we tell you all before Thanksgiving…rhetorical…+J was coming back for the spring with a some new pieces and spring remakes of certain fall essentials. Either way you look at it you cant lose, its low-cost luxury! The men’s collection still has the familiars like button downs, sweaters and blazers but there are some new editions like the full-zip stretch parka a la Bapesta. Not to mention that the women’s collection has a bevy of lightweight blazers and jackets…ready to be worn with leggings (That trend seems to have no end in sight lol)!
When I see Woolrich Woolen Mills two words come to mind, “Industrial Chic.” This line was inspired directly by the “working community” in the town that has developed around the mill. Sturdy garments modeled after American hunting and fishing gear made from original textiles with an emphasis on meshing tradition with modern form characterize this line. The construction is solid but the designs are subtely unique because of Japanese designer Daiki Suzuki. If your into tradition, durability and functionality with a twist then you definitely might wanna invest in some exclusive outerwear from this label.
New York based artist MOMO has successfully collaborated with the Adidas brand Y-3 to create a collection of “fli-tops” with artistically architectural colorways. This capsule collection is a redux of the Y-3 Hayworth Mid II but it boasts designs similar to his work in the International Outdoor Urban Art Exhibition. Tentatively, these shoes will be part of a limited run of 350 pairs worldwide with a pricetag of about $320. They will debut in the US at Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out.
