AMI – Autumn/Winter 2014

September 30th, 2014

Cutting his teeth at selection of luminary fashion houses including Dior, Givenchy and Marc Jacobs travelling between Paris, Milan and New York, Parisian-designer Alexandre Mattiussi has now firmly established his fledgling brand AMI as one of the go-to-labels season after season.

With finely tuned yet unique point of view on menswear, Matiussi’s latest collection melds together clean lines, traditional silhouettes and contemporary detailing. Pieced together by classic menswear staples such as Double Breasted Jackets, Herringbone Wool Blazers and Cable adorned knitwear, the collection is fine example of modern day Parisian sophistication with sportswear-informed jersey and wool constructed baseball caps adding an accessible edge.

BOFMP_main
 
Web and editorial imprint Business of Fashion sat down with Nike head-honcho Mark Parker to discuss the sportswear behemoth’s position in the marketplace as well as in the 21st century in general.

Taking place at Parker’s office at the notorious Nike campus in Oregon during the business end of this year’s World Cup in Brazil, the chat naturally takes in the advertising tug of war between themselves and the Beaverton brand’s closest competitors, adidas, as well as the emergence in recent years of fellow US-brand Under Armour.

As well as talking about the highly competitive sportswear market, Parker also discusses his development from designer to CEO, the importance of innovative design as well as the crossover between athletic sportswear apparel and high fashion.

Check out the full interview here as well as our selection of Nike.

Nike Air Foamposite Pro Premium ‘Elephant Print’

September 30th, 2014

Designed in 1997 by the incredible influential Eric Avar, the Air Foamposite is one of the most celebrated, revered and hotly debated silhouettes from Nike’s illustrious Basketball range.

Taking classic hardcourt styles as a starting point, Avar ingested a breadth of various influences to create a boot that looked more at home in a sci-fi motion picture than it did in the NBA. But as it was initially billed as a intimidating proposition for players to wear, the Foamposite has stood the test the time with almost two decades of iteration, reworkings and gametime under its belt.

The trainer’s ability to transfer from the court to the streets is also a sign of Avar’s brilliance and this latest iteration of the classic sneaker pays homage to one of Nike’s signature prints ‘Elephant’. Decked out in the instantly recognisable grey tones of the Elephant print, the shoe is enhanced by use of Hyper Pink to the sole unit adding a truly modern touch to this storied shoe.

Release Information
Name: Nike Air Foamposite Pro Premium ‘Elephant Print’
Colour: Wolf Grey/Black/Hyper Pink
Style Code: 616750-002
Launch Date: 4th October 2014
