Greek 2 Chic: Picks of the Week

with one comment

Okay, I’mma do the picks of the week a tad differently today — I’m posting only ONE of each type of item. I know, I know, this is truly a challenge, especially since we locate some of the dopest pieces out there. But hey, as Unique Trend Øriginators…we need to operate outside the box, feel me. Follow along:

The Sneaker

nike-coraline-dunk-sneaker

The Coraline Dunk by NIKE. Apparently, Coraline is an animated horror film that will be released in early Feb. To commemorate the film, their making these limited edition (1000 pairs) sneakers winnable. I’m lowkey mad at this marketing ploy, but hey, get it how ya live. The colorway is ridiculoso, the materials…sick (it’s got a damn button on it!) — all around, a work of art.

The Jacket

trilly-truly-swagger-lupe-fiasco-stadium-jacket-31

Stadium Jacket by Swagger x Trilly & Truly (Lupe Fiasco). Whenever I see a letterman-style jacket, I get reminded of classic swag. This piece is no different. The Camou Pattern fully contrasts the white leather used on the arms. But most importantly, the designers speak for themselves! CLEARLY, with this on, you will be a Varsity member among JV players.

The T-Shirt

maison-martin-margiela-2009-spring-summer-apparel-january-02

Fingerprint T-shirt by Maison Martin Margiela. I don’t know what it is about this shirt, it’s just so striking. The concept of wearing something as unique as a fingerprint is dope to me. Now, aside from the subtle meaning, the shirt’s materials are among the highest quality ever (highest being japanese handmade). Kinda pricey, but a t-shirt that will last for a while.

The Gear

les-ateliers-ruby-helmet-jerome-coste-1

Les Ateliers Ruby Helmet by Jerome Coste. Okay, I’m pretty sure this won’t apply to everyone’s tastes and pocket space. But honestly, this might be the flyest motorcycle helmet on the market. If you’re not feelin the chrome wit crimson and ruby accents…check ur swagometer — you might be below standard.

The Device

wrapper-mulberry-iphone-sleeve-front2

Vintage Mulberry Wool iPhone Sleeve by Wrappers UK. Ladies…..this is incredibly chic. Most people are tacky with their device game — no protective gear at all. Some people are adequate — hard plastic cases, holsters, the works. Very few people are savvy — insert the joint you see above. Which one are you?

The Lady Kicks

lanvin-satin-sneakers

Satin Shoes by Lanvin. Okay, I hope I’m not violating the challenge by posting two shoes — but really, these are not “sneakers”. THEY are waaaay more official, and they are constructed of SATIN uppers. How serious of a matter is that!?

The Belt

bapebelt

Leather Bape Belt by A Bathing Ape. Every now and then, you have to let the ostentatious rebel out of the conservative fly box. This belt is the avenue to accomplish that. Quality leather, metal buckle with BAPE imprint, courtesy of Nigo. Apes….you already know this goes hard.

The Bag

cole-haan-for-assouline-leather-bag-01

Leather Tote Bag by Cole Haan for Assouline Boutique (New York). So, you know the phrase, “Strong enough for a man, but built for a woman”? I think it applies right here. This is a “unisex” bag, but honestly, I think it would be a dope addition to a female’s arsenal. It’s durable as hell, a nice size, really stylish, and versatile. What more could you want? It’s like having a Goyard bag for the price of a Cole Haan Shoe. Nirvana.
