Francesco Nanthen T-shirts

Francesco Nathan have done nothing else but take some thread, turn it into a T-shirt and put in online. To start they have 3 prints that have already gained a lot of online attention with a reblog of over 4000 times of the now famous ‘500 days of Summer’ label. These boys took their favorite designs and threw it on a T…no more no less.   Francesco Nathan tee’s are 50 of Australia’s finest dollars and they ship for a flat rate tenner WORLDWIDE.

Oliver Spencer Spring Summer 2012 Runway Show

Oliver Spencer returned to the catwalk yesterday to display his upcoming Spring/Summer 2012 Collection.  As a part of London Fashion Week’s menswear day, the show took place at the Mercer Street studio in Covent Garden and offered a supremely confident offering, rich with boisterous color and texture.  To emphasize the appropriate season, an eclectic mix of models took the runway donning sleeveless workers jackets, cropped trousers as well as a profuse footwear selection of capped-toe oxfords and moc-toe high tops.  Notably confident at the collection’s unveiling, Oliver Spencer was recently nominated for a 2011 British Fashion Award for menswear designer.


The long and successful run of collaborations between PUMA and MIHARAYASUHIRO continue with these PUMA MY-56 shoes. To be honest I’ve not liked any since the first season thats until now! Available in 4 different colors, the shoe appears to have been based around the Clyde model but with large circular sections cut out and replaced with rounded plastic, creating a unique 3D polka dot effect. Suede is chosen for the upper with leather and metal detailing used as finishing touches.

Mastermind JAPAN x Visvim Gila Moc

Long-time collaborators visvim and mastermind JAPAN team up once again to present a new version of the GILA MOC this season. Featuring a minimal upper design, the GILA MOC is crafted from premium suede and comes with mmJ skull logo coin. Construction of the shoe comes complete with an off-white outsole.

Frances Bean Cobain by Hedi Slimane

IT is one of the most anticipated comings of age in recent pop cultural history: Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, has arrived. A series of sultry black-and-white photos of Ms. Cobain, whom most of the world remembers as either an infant in her father’s arms or awkward adolescent, has been lighting up the Web after Hedi Slimane, the photographer and former Dior Homme designer, posted them just over a week ago.


Daft Punk Helmet by Volpin Props

In what is arguably the absolute coolest and most sought after accessory in the history of performing arts, the Daft Punk Helmet has been completely and functionally replicated. This version, created by Harris Krix of Volpin Props (the guy makes so many amazing prop replicas), is based on the helmet Thomas Bangalter would wear. The project took four months to complete, but as you can see from the results, its entirely worth the effort.
