MCM is certainly my favourite leather fashion brand, and their 2018 Winter collection, has not disappointed me. This is a new version of the much loved STARK backpack.
Teaming Visetos coated canvas and nappa leather, this style contrasts this season’s vibrant Chevron motif with a monochrome base to impressive effect. Premium mesh material at the back boosts comfort and breathability, while a total of three pockets – as well as an internal laptop sleeve – offer secure storage for all your essentials.
Bag size dimensions
41 x 33 x 15 cm
Leather top handle
Adjustable shoulder straps
Front zipped pocket
Cotton twill lining
This backpack is available directly from the MCM website, and MCM flagship store in London.
You will certainly have heard about this tradition or you might already following it. Now is the time to learn about its meaning!
According to a tradition, it is said to date back in the Middle Ages when people were not allowed to wear red garments, because the colour was associated with blood, the devil, witchcraft and evil forces.
According to the legend women who wore red underwear during New Year’s Eve had good luck in love on the following year, attracting wealthy men, or finding passion in their current relationships.
Red underwear is now associated with passion, happiness and sex, so wearing red underwear on New Year’s Eve may not only bring love to the new year but also a lot of passion. So its fair to say, both ladies and gents, you should all be wearing your newest and best Red underwear on December 31st, going into January 1st, no matter what year it is. Enjoy
This latest Nike Air Max 1 release comes with a Blood Red look that is fitting for the ghoulish date just around the corner. Boasting a blood red leather upper joined with a black base, this is a dramatic twist to the “Bred” colorway that has dominated as of late. Featuring premium construction across its tumbled leather and canvas build, these make for a look that is not only fitting for fall, but year around statement-making. Whether or not you’re in the fright business, this Nike Air Max 1 “Blood Red” certainly is mean looking.
Adidas and Kanye West finally unveiled his first collaboration collection, called Yeezy Season 1, to the world on Thursday 13th February, at a secret fashion show in New York, and via link worldwide, which was stream at selected cinemas. If you wasn’t lucky enough to get a ticket to either showing, here is the full video of the collection being unveiled. One thing that Kanye has proved to the world, once again, is that he is an artist, and I look forward to the official look book on this collection, and more in the future from Adidas and Kanye West.
The almighty, success driven Jordan brand has done it again, they are bring us what they call “Future” or rightly named, Air Jordan Future. Now I’ll be honest, the first images of this sneaker, had me like no way, I don’t like that. But now that the brand has released official images prior to it’s March 15th release, I have to say, my opinion has changed dramatically. This is a luxury looking sneaker, and a fine looking one at that. The Jumpman brand have done away with a leather upper for this sneaker, and have given it the woven material treatment. They say that this creation is “symbiotic relationship between the court and the street”. The Future silhouette is designed with an Air Jordan XI sole with a chukka style upper, complete with an asymmetrical lace-up system.
Jordan Brand’s description of the sneaker says:
With a carbon fiber plate and full-length air outsole, the Jordan Future offers lightweight comfort and cushioning. Enhancing the minimalist nature of the shoe, the deconstructed upper foregoes a heel counter and toe enforcer. The asymmetrical lacing reduces pressure across the top of the foot, while the suede interior and ankle collar enhance comfort.
The release date for the Jordan Future is Saturday 15th March, and the colour ways they have shown us are that of the Black / Glow OR Black/ Infrared version. In my opinion, I will purchase one for sure, something different and as the name says, it’s looking ahead to the Future, not trying to recreate the OG colourways and designs that so many sneaker heads would like to see protected, and remain as classics with no re-productions.
Is there nothing that Jay Z can’t do in this modern age, that doesn’t influence our culture away from music? Answer to that is, well no. Mr Shawn Carter has influenced so much in our modern age from Music, Art, Movies, Sport, Design and don’t forget his imprint in Fashion via his Rocawear brand. It would only seem right that Jigga has teamed up with one of the most spoken about watch manufactures in music and sport HUBLOT, whom have never been shy about collaborations with artists, sports teams and even players like Lebron James, to create some very original time pieces.
Now in the Classic Fusion collection, you will be able to find the “Shawn Carter” watch. Designed by its namesake himself, the Shawn Carter by HUBLOT Classic Fusion features the SC logo cut into the dial, front and center, not only revealing some of the precise inner workings of the movement, but adding a bit of edge to the smooth face. Measuring 45mm in diameter, the piece encapsulates HUBLOT’s 2.90mm HUB 1300 hand-wound movement, arriving in two different make-ups: a black ceramic and a yellow gold, both with a black leather strap and a strict limit of 250 pieces and 100 each, respectively. The watch is set to launch exclusively at Barney’s. This release will be limited to 350 pieces, so if you want one, I’d make those calls to reserve from now.
Fresh for you ladies this autumn is the new Micheal Kors Nikko High Top sneaker. This is a wedges heel sneaker, 3″ for all you petits ladies out there, this is for you. I must say these are very gorgeous and the subtle design, and lack of MK emblems all over the material makes it one for you who like to have the best, but not let everyone else know the brand, unless they know. I found these directly on the Michael Kors website, so I am not sure if the UK stockists will have them yet, but don’t let that disappoint you, get yourself down to Selfridges to find out. The style number is: 43F3NKFE6S
Time for me to get into the swing of things finally. 2013 is looking to be a very big year for trainer (sneaker) wearers worldwide, with Nike and Reebok leading the way of mass releases, and desirable colour ways which will leave many of you SneakerHeads and HypeBeasts low on money at any given time of the month, let alone around pay day.
My first feature, is the forthcoming Nike Sportwear Perf Pack, which will be releasing on Saturday 16th February via Size?, exclusively. The full pack consists of the following –
Nike Air Max Light ¦ Nike Zoom All Court 2 Low ¦ Nike Blazer ’77 Mid
All made with premium brushed suede or tumbled leather, metal eyelets, and waxed laces. To come in light blue or tan brown for the Air Max Light and Zoom All Court 2 Low, as well as classic colourways for the Blazer ’77 Mid. Unlike most packs that drip release, you will be able to purchase any of the pack on release day.
My personal choice will be the Air Max Light in Obsidian, that’s a winner for me.
