For Parisian fashion house KENZO‘s latest collaboration, the contemporary brand steps outside the realm of style to release a limited-edition bottle with Evian. This is not the first creative partnership from the French mineral water company, as it has paired with the likes of Elie Saab, Diane Von Furstenberg, Issey Miyake, Paul Smith, Jean Paul Gaultier, Courrèges and Christian Lacroix in the recent past. The result of their pairing sees a glass bottle that takes design cues from KENZO’s David Lynch-inspired fall collection with a vibrant blue and yellow broken floor pattern. The two brand’s have not yet released details regarding where and when this collaborative bottle can be purchased, so be sure to keep an eye out at KENZO retailers around the globe.

Another bit of Stone Island news as Supreme presents its aptly-timed collaborative capsule with Italian company for Winter 2014 season. Consisting of both a crewneck and hooded sweatshirt as well as a jacket, sweatpant and camp cap, the collection features subtle branding from both parties while retaining the performance-oriented features Stone Island is famous for. For example, the Raso Gommato Cover Nero Jacket is crafted from a wind and water-resistant cotton satin bonded to a polyurethane coating and outfitted with a removable liner.

Look for the collection in-store in at Supreme locations in New York, Los Angeles, London and online on October 2 and later across Japan on October 4. The capsule will also be available at select Stone Island stores.

Stone Island Raso Hand-Painted Field Jacket

Stone Island pushes the boundaries with this hand-painted M65 jacket, as part of their larger Autumn Winter 2014 collection. We can assume the Italian brand have deployed their signature space-age fabrics alongside the hand-painted finish, which gives each piece a unique finish and texture. If you feel like getting in on the unorthodox outerwear, head over to Concept by Cruise.

Stussy x Kangol Bermuda Casual Hats

IMG_2794-0.JPG
Adored by hip hoppers the world over, Kangol‘s iconic Bermuda Casual bucket hat was worn by LL Cool J so much in the 1990s that people thought there was something actually wrong with his head (!). Stussy‘s Japanese arm have teamed up with the brand for a trio of new versions of the hat, with navy, white, and a Gucci-inspired black, green, and red version all sporting the brand’s logo and signature script on the underbrim. No word on a worldwide release as of yet, but given the success of Kangol’s collab with Patta, hopefully this will be made more generally available soon.

Nike returns after a seven-month hiatus with its second colorway for the Flyknit Chukka Trainer FSB. First seen on the feet of Winter Olympians earlier in the year, this time around the winterized trainer’s ultra-lightweight Flyknit-wool blend upper sports a charcoal hue with a contrasting white Swoosh as well as a black and white speckled Free-inspired midsole, all of which lends a deep space kind of vibe. A great boot alternative for the impending winter months, the Nike Flyknit Chukka Trainer FSB “Light Charcoal” is currently only available at German retailer Asphaltgold.
