Mo’Wax x Converse Jack Purcell Collection

mowax-x-converse-jack-purcell-collection-22Headed by James Lavelle, Mo’Wax was founded in 1992 and quickly became a melting pot of subcultures and musical style, releasing music from the likes of DJ Shadow, DJ Krush and Blackalicious, while also boasting collaborations with NIGO, Futura 2000, Medicom Toys and more. To celebrate two decades of creativity, Mo’Wax teamed up with Converse to present a remake to Lavelle’s favorite silhouettes, the Converse Jack Purcell. The collection consists of the Ox which boasts a unique white debossed leather upper, and the Mid-Top which features a premium stingray leather upper. Both iterations are made meticulously, despite their minimal makeup. “Build & Destroy” are debossed onto the rubber toecaps with iconic camo screen-print graphics (synonymous to Ben Dury’s signature work) take on the cotton base. Metallic gold logos take on the sockliners and heel stay, while an icy blue outsole rounds out sneakers with a bold finish.mowax-x-converse-jack-purcell-collection-3

Nike Sock Dart by fragment design

I f*cking love this!! This silhouette is one of my favourites Hiroshi Fujiwara and his fragment design team has worked on. Having inspired silhouettes from the Nike HTM collection in the early 2000s already, the Nike Sock Dart returns this season in a refreshed fragment design look, after having been officially released in 2004. At the time way ahead, the Sock Dart was the first sneaker ever to be made with computerized knitting technology. The market now finally seems ready for it and we are excited to see it back in the collection. The sneaker features a dark olive woven upper and a transparent, silicone lockdown strap in lieu of laces. It looks like the fragment design x Nike Sock Dart will come as part of a pack of sneakers designed by fragment design, including also the Nike Roshe LD-1000 SP and the Air Jordan 1.

Nike ‘SweatSUIT’ by Clothsurgeon

Although not an official Nike collaboration, the customized SweatSUIT by Clothsurgeon is something that can easily sit at any Nike shelf. More as a personalized project, the brand took four standard grey Nike fleece sweatpants and reconstructed them into a suit jacket and pants set, dubbed the “SweatSUIT.” The single breasted suit jacket is fully lined and features working cuffs, as well as front dual bucket pockets from the fleece pant’s original pockets. The “SweatSUIT” pants feature a single pleat and is of cropped length, while maintaining the original pant’s elastic waistband. Synonymous with fine tailoring, The Clothsurgeon “SweatSUIT” is definitely a show of skill from the brand, the only downside being that this one-off isn’t for sale.

Nike’s Flyknit Zoom Agility silhouette brings together two of the brand’s most innovative technologies to create a training shoe that delivers flexibility, strength and quickness. Designers looked to mirror the Flyknit upper’s flexibility with a flexible application of Zoom Air in the outsole. The Zoom Air bags are placed in hexagonal rubber pods and strategically positioned to provide surpassed cushioning and responsiveness. This holiday, the sportswear giant is giving the unique silhouette their “Multicolor” color scheme in an effort to emphasize the shoe’s knit upper. The Nike Flyknit Zoom Agility “Multicolor” will be available beginning February 12, 2015.
