Stone Island have created two jackets using thermo-sensitive, color-changing technology for their Autumn Winter 2013 collection. The fabric is comprised of a water and wind resistant polyurethane film that is embedded with micro-encapsulated pigments, causing it to change color as the temperature changes. Available in two styles – the Ice Jacket-J is a collared button-up that uses the thermo-sensitive fabric all over, while the Knit features thermo-sensitive fabric on the torso, knit black sleeves and a hood. Check out the video they’ve released that tracks the colour change. Buy Stone Island Autumn Winter 2013 HERE

David Beckham x Belstaff

20131107-164333.jpg

DAVID BECKHAM has designed a collection for British brand Belstaff – a menswear offering inspired by “reviving luxury moto classics that have been redefined by Beckham’s iconic personal style”. The former footballer will also star in the label’s 2014 global advertising campaign, photographed by Peter Lindbergh in rural Buckinghamshire.

The campaign depicts a “band of brothers” led by Beckham, travellelling around the English countryside on their motorbikes, something Beckham enjoys off-camera too.

“I’ve always loved motorbikes,” Beckham told us at the Belstaff store opening in London. “But I’ve never really been allowed to ride them. Obviously now that I’ve finished playing, it’s enabled me to spend more time on my bikes, which is great.”

The Beckham for Belstaff collection will launch exclusively at Belstaff stores worldwide and Belstaff.com in March 2014, and will then roll out with select global distribution in June 2014. Retailers will have there hands in the air because one thing the Beckhams can do its sell clothes. Buy Belstaff Autumn Winter 2013 here

Aitor Throup 2013 “New Object Research” Collection

20131015-081415.jpg

This man is a fucking genius….It’s taken quite a while, but we’d say it was worth the wait. Aitor Throup‘s first full clothing collection has finally hit the shops seven years after his graduation from the Royal College of Art. “New Object Research” is the amalgamation and result of archetypal concepts that the Argentinian-born, London-based designer and artist has been exploring for a while now — stuff we’ve seen in his previous capsule collections like the Shiva skull bag, Skanda jacket and Saxophone shirt. His long fascination with the human anatomy and the evolution of his study of construction and fabrication have culminated in these convention breaking designs: an original zipper system, cutting-edge buttonhole technology, trousers that don’t finish at the ankles, out-of-this-world seams, and ergonomic sleeves that anticipate movement. Throup has even engaged a design firm to create rotating, 360-degree views of the pieces for his new website which will launch this Wednesday, October 16.
