Nike Air Max 1SP Zig-Zag Pack

20130628-105801.jpg

With so much goodness dropping on the Air Max 1 silhouette this year, I didn’t think it could get any better, but Nike obviously did. In a tantalising tango of colours and pattern, this AM1 is set to crack heads, toes, knees and shoulders with its bombastic barrage of geometric groove. Available in both mens and women’s editions, you can cop his or hers now through Taiwan Invincible.

Size? x Nike Urban Safari Pack Pt: 3 Nike Air 180

20130626-174311.jpgThey have saved the best till last….The trilogy is complete… After a phenomenal global response to parts 1 and 2 of the Nike ‘Urban Safari’ Pack, it’s time for part 3 to step into the light. Enter the Nike Air Max 180. A definitive running silhouette since its creation in 1991, the revolutionary ‘180’ boasted a bigger and better Air Unit than its siblings. A legendary model in all respects, there was no question that this was the one to tie up the trio.

Pitti Uomo Spring Summer 2014, Florence Street Style

The style raconteur pitti

Once again it is June, also known as menswear month in the fashion calendar. A few days ago, London Collections succesfully kicked off the global menswear circuit, followed by Florence, Milan and last but not least, Paris. The summer buying season is always a favourite of mine and Pitti Uomo being my favourite show. The Italians just know how to ‘do it’ …. so I am curently enjoying (and mostly not enjoying, way too hot for work) 40 degrees of sunshine in Florence.

Style Style outside and inside of the show is big business for the hundreds of photographers of fashion blogs and the internet fame hungry visitors some of which I swear rock fancy dress just to get a picture taken! Anyway check out a round up of some of the amazing dressed people (and a few not so amazing!)

Ray-Ban Wayfarer Ice-Pop Collection

20130617-192150.jpg

Ray-Ban Wayfarers are simply the most iconic sunglasses ever. Everyone from JFK to Jay-Z has rocked a pair. They’re stylish but they’re not overpowering. But with the coloured versions I have always thought of as being a bit shit….kids at festivals and the Ting Tings did that for me!!! But I kind of like these ice versions. Choose from six different translucent colours that all give off a refreshing summer feel. They’ll be available to purchase later this month

Concept by Cruise x Trickers : The Unusual Suspects

Full-Comp-2000

Concept is the little brother of indi store Cruise…their first design collaboration is with master-shoemaker Trickers. The debut is a subtle slimmed down reworking of the classic long wing Richard & Bourton brogue. Each style has been given a unique character and name pertaining to each material used.

The “Habana” Longwing pays homage to all things Cuban (minus the ridiculous heel) constructed from rich Cuba waxed suede uppers and subtle brogue detailing. The shoe is finished off with a Barbour Welted Danite sole for added durability.

Habana-Pair Habana-Lace Habana-Heel

The “Aristocrat” Longwing pays homage to sartorial function and English eccentricity. Reworking the classic Richard Long Wing with a slimmed down contemporary fit they are hand made using the finest Naster Burnished calfskin and feature a bold contemporary twist in the form of a vibrant orange Itshide sole.

Aris-Pair Aris-Front Aris-Heel

The “Artiste” Bourton Derby Brogue takes an obscure reference from the Sienna clay used in the production of oil paint pigments and is crafted from textured Sienna scotch grain leather and contrasting Dainite sole.

Artiste-Pair Artiste-Front Artiste-Heel

The “Highland Fox” Bourton Derby Brogue pays homage to the elusive fox of the Outer Hebrides seen here in rich coppery brown Reppelo suede.
