If you haven’t realized yet, high top sneakers are the new standard. But, we’re not talking just your run-of-the-mill NIKE AF1 or Retro Jordan. No no, leading designers from across the globe have met in a secret huddle and decided that Hi Tops are the fashion industry’s quarterback sneak (pun intended).

They’ve been on the runways, they’ve been in boutiques, they’ve been in all the fashion capitals of the world. The thing to remember is that the Designer Hi Top is always embellished. Look for absurd colorways, random straps and buckles, and blending of materials and textures. These details set the new high top away from the average high top. Get Familiar!!

Greek 2 Chic: Match Maker, Match Maker

with one comment

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-jeepneynike-spring-2009-dunk-hi-63

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-footwear-8

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-virgil-abloh-tshirt-11nike-spring-2009-dunk-hi-102

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.

barbarella-t-by-rise-upnike-spring-2009-dunk-hi-81

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.

eachone_alphanumericgreedygenius_purpo_coolbreeze_1

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 jeremy-scott-for-adidas-metro-attitude-booster-tongue-1

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..)

Greek 2 Chic: Picks of the Week (Back|2|School)

with one comment

Since EVERYBODY wants to be Chris Paul this fall….Let’s GET IT!! Top picks across the board for Greeks goin back-to-school:

NIKE Dunk Hi — “Octadunk” Pack. I saw these in person….very Dope! Shout out to Bodega in Boston. Yo, these joints commemorate the beginning of the Beijing Olympics (08-08-08). The detail work is nice, the shoe is completely seamless, and really it’s like looking at a bunch of pixels. LIVE!

Colette + Hello Kitty collaborated to make the Silly Thing Watch. Okay…..It’s blue….It has a CAT on it….AND it’s considered “high-fashion”. No-Brainer!!! Snatch that up, ladiez in blue.

So after really looking around the web, I found something that was dark enough to be Hunter Green. Adidas + GoodFoot (Canadian fashion, get ya brand game up) collaborate on this 5-Panel cap. The dopest part about it all is that it comes with a carrying bag and eco-friendly literature. The Cap and Bag are made out of green materials. How bout that?!

Creative Recreation, again. The Miranda Shoe, definitely an appropriately named joint. Haters have the RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT when you slip these on. Think of them as a creative take on a ballet flat, but waaaaay more comfortable. (Sidebar: Creative Rec is in Barneys now! These dudes done blown UP!! Got they shoes bein made in ITALY).

The Louboutin T-Shirt by Free Gold Watch. This is pretty clever. Put one of the most-coveted heels on a t-shirt, trick it out in red, then add a Fresh ass zipper to the neck for originality?! On point like a Ballerina! Snatch that up, real talk.

Greek 2 Chic: Poodles

leave a comment »

Check out these styles from around the web:

Mesh Ballet Flats by Giuseppe Zanotti. Very hot for the summer. Plus these joints cost a pretty penny so you know alot of folks not gonna be up on them.

The Brazil Track Top by Adidas. CLASSIC!!!

San Diego Chargers Shades by Trainspotter. These stunna shades go! I appreciate the retro style — although I know none of the 1980 Chargers own a pair.

Embossed Shoulder Bag by Banana Republic. Stylish, well-priced, and heavy on the details.

The Delerium Blouse by NYC Boutique. I feel like Prince made this style popular in Purple Rain lol. Nevertheless, lightweight and fresh is the way to go this summer.
