Sydney Australia Is Gettin All GeeDup.


slideshow_1

Fashion changes drastically from place to place, and touring Australia for a few weeks made me want to look into whats hot in the Land Down under.  The most striking brand I came across was Geedup, an Australian clothing company, started by two brothers. Their style is extremely reminiscent of the Cali streetwear scene, the selection of pieces is wide enough that I could wear a full outfit from them everyday for two weeks and still not have run through them all.  Check the method below.

Established in the summer of 2010, the group of young entrepreneur’s that founded Geedup set up shop in Darlinghurst, and Parramatta, Australia.  I hope at some point they get a location in the States, however, you don’t have to fly to Australia to get your hands on their gear.  Their online shop has a great selection as well as accessories, which you can view by clicking any of the photos in the post, or right here.  I’m making it a priority to grab a few pieces before I head out.

Croc Shall Never Kill Ape?

Coming off the heels of their Undefeated collaboration, Bape announces their latest collab with French clothing company Lacoste.  The unusual pairing will be an exclusive capsule collection release for the Japanese Bape store. Meshing Bape’s streetwear essence with Lacoste’s luxury-wear, both brands manage to drop one of the better collabs seen this year. The capsule collection consists of polo shirts, sweatpants, hoodies, crewnecks and graphic tees. The full-zip hoodie reimagined as a crocodile is undoubtedly the standout piece from the offerings, while the combined logo offers a clever take on the collaboration, but every piece in the collection will include Lacoste’s signature crocodile logo and Bape’s gorilla logo.  The Lacoste L!ve x Bape capsule collection will be available at Japanese Bape locations starting March 28.

“Lo/Fi” Fashion Design By Sruli Recht.


c2644fc3df68540c75af7ef2b38e3c85

The featured “Cropped Militia Jacket” and the “Loose Sweater”, made from walnut wood material on a wool base.  Once grown, the wood is deconstructed into pieces, and then attached to a textile base, creating a material that is half wood, half textile, and completely fragmentary.  The “Wooden Textiles” in this collection are made with Elisa Strozyk, uniquely for this collection.  The simplified look of polygonal geometry is meant to represent breaking the body down into a pixelated memory.

NUWA

Nuwa is a series of imaginary characters, in reference to the creative goddess of the same name, who shaped the first humans with some clay. Created by  Nadia Wicker fascination for the clothing extravagance, the painting and the movement, led me to create this album of heroines, warriors and fanciful queens. Nuwa got 4 honorables mentions at International Photography Awards and was published in Absurde Magazine.

Slvstr ‘Season:00’ Look Book.


 

For a long time, I’ve been looking for clothing with simple style, that still stands out from the gambit of street wear out there right now.  Recently I found exactly what I was looking for when I was introduced to the Slvstr line.  The first collection styled to mock current luxury brands instantly intrigued me.  And Slvstr’s “Blue Panther” ideology behind the clothing got me interested in more work from the lead designer Reggie Sylvester.  To find out more check out the official site at Slvstr.com

Nutty Tarts.


Finish art duo Mrs. Katriina Haikala and Mrs. Vilma Metteri developed a line of screen-printed ‘hairy’ undergarments. Check out the collection. I’d love to see someone wearing them.

The World’s First Hermes-Decorated Apartment.


Luxury property developer SC Global Developments has unveiled a private apartment decorated by Hermès at its flagship development, The Marq on Paterson Hill in Singapore.  This is the first apartment entirely decorated by Hermès and SC Global said it will not be for sale, but to be used only for private engagements.

The spacious 6,232 sq ft five-bedroom apartment features a combination of furniture, wallpaper, carpets, fabrics, rugs along with made-to-measure upholstered items and a choice of artworks.  Simon Cheong, Chairman and CEO of SC Global, said the collaboration with the Paris-based Hermès lasted for 18 months to create the unique atmosphere.

“By realising for the first time, a complete project of home decoration and furnishings, we also share with SC Global a unique experience and express our high quality values of excellence and craftsmanship in the home universe,” noted Hélène Dubrule, General Manager of Hermès Maison.

The Marq has 66 exclusive residences on a 1.2-hectare ground. The units consist of high-end bungalows within a luxury high-rise apartment setting.  The development’s unique design features include airy double-volume (6.5 metre high) living spaces providing panoramic views of the city skyline and a 15-metre cantilevered lap pool in every apartment of the Signature Tower.

Apartment sizes range from 3,000 sq ft for a 4-bedroom apartment in the Premier Tower to 6,195 sq ft for a 5-bedroom apartment in The Signature Tower.

B.ez.


B.ez the brand is an ambiguous experimentation found at the intersection of three different, but like-minded individuals. It encompasses an attempt to use the creative mind as the vessel for freedom of expression on the quest to chase one’s dreams and ambitions.  B.ez is not your father’s t-shirt brand nor is it shaking up the clothing industry. B.ez is not claiming to be a revolutionary brand that will change your life nor is it some unexplainable movement. B.ez is simply making moves. It’s not for everyone; find out if it’s for you.

The b. is the ‘action’. It means stop talking about doing the things you want to do and just do them. Be true to yourself and just b. you.  The ez is the ‘how’. The mood at which to handle your goals.  It’s important to always be humble in your quest for success, as this will keep you in the right circles in the future.  The octopus is the symbol of our brand; it represents creativity, wisdom, and a sense of mystery. We feel it suits our endeavors favorably and we are enjoying manipulating its appearance for the sake of intrigue.

Josh Farria: Craftmanship.


Click to R.S.V.P.

I’ve featured a vast collection of photographers on this great blog, but none so far have the same creative style, or characteristic intricacies as Josh Farria.  Now, this in normally the part where I go into detail about what makes this artist stand out from the sea of mundane, generic photographers that litter the internet.  But instead, I’d rather invite you to see for yourself next Friday night in San Francisco at the Infinite store on 627 Post.  The rest of the info is in the photo above, and check the method in the photos below to get a taste of the amazing work being displayed at the gallery.  Click the pic above to R.S.V.P.

4th Amendment Underclothes.


I’m always at the airport, and it never occurred to me that the 4th amendment is CONSTANTLY violated by the TSA, but the 4th Amendment clothing line is a little poke under the ribs at this intrusion.  Now there’s a way to protest those intrusive TSA X-ray scanners without saying a word.  But with the 4th metallic ink-printed undershirts and underwear, your saying everything you need to.  Assert your rights without saying a word.

Adriana Lima for Blumarine Fall 2011 Campaign.

The New ‘Lotus’ Originals.


Lotus is going to launch a new luxury lifestyle brand, Lotus Originals, which will offer a range of performance outerwear, luxury knitwear and leather goods that reflect the craftsmanship, heritage and spirit of Lotus.  Lotus said it has carefully hand picked the very best suppliers and materials to work with to ensure that quality reflects the future of Lotus.  “Our goal with the Lotus Originals concept was to create a range of apparel and accessories that really capture the true spirit of our iconic British brand. Lotus Originals isn’t just for traditional car enthusiasts, on some of the pieces the branding is very subtle allowing the style and quality to shine so we hope that it will appeal to a much broader audience.  We have developed a collection that is luxurious in a classic, understated way so it is easy to wear every day yet still make you feel part of our very special brand,” stated Wiebke Bauer, Director of Licensing and Merchandising for Lotus.  Lotus Originals will be exclusively available from the Lotus website starting February.

Team ISO.


Being from Jersey, I have a bad habit of being stuck in my ways, be it the way I speak, the music I’m a fan of, or the clothes I wear. But when I became familiar with a clothing company by the name of Team ISO, I knew it didn’t matter where your from or what you rep, their brand is bent to be a classic. Team ISO is a street wear clothing brand aimed at any individual who feels they are standing up in a room full of people sitting down. ISO is short for ISOlated and an acronym for I Stand Out. ISO is all about fitting in where you stand out. Let that inner individual shine, ISO’s goal is to help you feel different and ISOlated. New fashion at its future peak. Check the method below, a new batch of Team ISO clothing will be available soon at http://teamiso.bigcartel.com
