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!!
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.
Cole Haan has resurrected the name of its’s long lost co-founder with the COLE ROOD & HAAN line of “roaring-twenties” inspired brogues, wingtips and dress boots and some cool complementary bags.
For ze Urban Graduette…
…and ze Urban Graduates:
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.
Back for the FIFTH time, Levi’s has teamed up with designer KAWS to bring us Urban Grads a Levi’s x Original Fake mash-up. The line features the infamous “chompers” on the back pockets of the re-edition of the 1947 and 1955 Levi’s 501 models. There is also a much baggier cargo pocket jean that was inspired by the Original Fake line. If I had to have anything more on my back pockets then this would be it. The teeth don’t overpower the back of your jean. They are a nice statement piece that say “this is a pair of Levi’s“…but something more.
These limited edition Levi’s can be purchased at Colette’s…if they aren’t already sold out.
