Dries Van Noten Canvas/Leather Sneaker

Dries Van Noten makes use of an interesting textile for its latest Spring Summer 2012 Canvas Sneakers. As the straightforward moniker implies, the pair sports a brown canvas upper that is juxtaposed against a dark navy blue vinyl on the toecap and heel.

Credited with the creation of the original waxed waterproof polyester motorcycling jacket, Barbour is an iconic British label with a historically rich pedigree dating back nearly 120 years. Their most classic piece has become the standard for waxed jackets with Spring Summer 2012 seeing Barbour giving two of their most technical and iconic jacket styles a healthy dose of color (including the belted A7-inspired jacket popularized by Steve McQueen).

Kate Moss x Supreme T-Shirt Spring Summer 2012


Following the Kate Moss posters that have been strewn across a range of city walls, Supreme advances its latest graphic T-shirt with none other than Kate Moss. Seeing a return, the close relationship between Moss and the New York label comes to shape via a solid white T-shirt with a printed graphic of the model emblazoned front and center in an expected leopard top. The T-shirt will release alongside the Supreme Spring/Summer 2012 collection.

Marni x H&M Men’s Collection

After showing you the men’s collection lookbook earlier, we now take a closer look at all the product that will release from the Marni at H&M Collection in the coming weeks.

The collection is rather big and it looks really nice, especially with summer in mind. The shirting with great prints and paneling is among out favorite, but the outerwear, shorts, pants, and accessories also look great. The collection features sunglasses, sneakers, sandals and some very solid looking bags.

“Marni’s collection for H&M is all about freedom and experimentation, Marni prints and colours intended to mix and match together in a playful way. Everything goes with everything, making African prints the perfect companion to Bauhaus modernity, and sporty silhouettes sitting with more feminine shapes. The collection also includes a full range of shoes, bags and charming accessories to create a total Marni look at H&M. Meanwhile for men, Marni offers a fresh take on menswear staples, with a subtle use of print and a softened use of colour.”

The Marni at H&M Collection will be released on March 8, 2012, at select H&M stores around the globe.


Gourmet Spring Summer 2012 Collection

Gourmet released their Spring/Summer 2012 Collection today which makes use of their unique silhouettes and great color palette. As they are still a relatively new footwear brand, they’ve done a great job of re-imagining what a modern day sneaker can look like. For this season a lot of models return in bright and muted colors with some usage of Camouflage and Leopard Print. My personal favorite if not only for originality is the newly released Dignan in a great polka dot/patent leather mix.

The structural arrangement of the molecules on the treated material means that they repel contact with water, without altering the hand of the material… Basicly speaking this lightweight jacket is manufactured from a cotton jersey fabric more commonly used for tees and sweats, which has been treated to produce a water repellent finish, whilst retaining the luxurious soft handle of the fabric. Just another example of Stone Island leading the way in technology of outerwear.
