adidas Consortium x Pharrell Williams ‘Solid’ Pack

September 18th, 2014

Revered as much for his musical talents as he is for his contributions to the art world and fashion, Pharrell Williams has teamed up with adidas Originals to produce the highly anticipated ‘Solid’ Pack.

Melding the sportswear aesthetic of the German sportswear giant and Pharrell’s considered eye for colour and distinctive look, the collection infuses iconic pieces with the playful, dynamic energy featuring bright colour and pop art details, bringing a youthful exuberance to sophisticated luxury.

The ‘Solid’ Pack incorporates two signature three-stripe styles that have been reworked to ingenious simplistic aplomb. Constructed in Germany, the Leather Tracktop takes the archival shape of the classic Superstar Tracktop with its bomber collar and welted pockets and upgrades it with boldly coloured Nappa Leather. Available in Red, Bluebird and Black, the jacket recut to a more contemporary silhouette and is finished with contrast Nappa Leather three-stripe detail to the arms, eschewing the standard embroidered trefoil to the chest for a more luxury unbranded piece.

The premium jacket is joined by a reimagination of adidas’ sneaker-de-jour; the Stan Smith. His take on the classic tennis shoe in bold monochrome tones that complement the Tracktop are a dead cert for an unmissable street style look. Constructed with a full grain leather upper and a matching rubber outsole and Pharrell adds a touch of character with details to the heel and footbed.

The adidas Consortium x Pharrell Williams ‘Solid’ Pack launches Saturday 20th September 2014. For more information, please email us at [email protected].

Canada Goose Autumn/Winter 2014 Preview

September 17th, 2014

Our Autumn/Winter previews now take us to ‘The True North’ and a brand that is much a part of their nation’s culture the Maple Leaf, Mounties and Niagra Falls; Canada Goose.

Established in 1957 by Sam Tick under the name Metro Sportswear Ltd., the company original manufactured custom-ordered down-filled coats and heavy-duty parkas for a range of services such as the Canadian Rangers and certain city police departments in Toronto.

Changing its name to Snow Goose in 1985 after steady business growth due mainly to the success of their down-filled parkas, the brand decided to hit Europe with their highly insulating wares. However, the name ‘Snow Goose’ was already registered in Europe and not wanting to hault progress, the brand turned to the heritage and provenance, renaming themselves ‘Canada Goose’.

The Canada Goose name has stuck to this day and has become a proud bastion of Canadian culture and manufacture. The Toronto-based brand’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, their debut at END., is a testament to some of the outerwear brand’s staples. All manufactured in Canada, classic pieces such as the Chateau Parka and Chilliwak Bomber with their distinctive fur collar hoods are sat alongside more technical, performance-based offerings such as Freestyle Down Filled Vest.

The Canada Goose Autumn/Winter 2014 collection is due to land in the coming weeks. For more information, please email us at [email protected].

Nike LeBron 12 – A First Look

September 17th, 2014


 
Secretively assembled inside Nike’s headquarters in Beaverton, Nike have now unveiled the latest innovative step in on-court footwear; the LeBron 12.

Innovation is certainly the correct word to describe the advancement from the unworn LeBron XI to the latest from the James’ signature series with the introduction of new Nike technology, Nike Hex Zoom Air.

Drawing on ‘nature’s perfect shape,’ the Nike Sports Research Lab did away with a full-length Zoom Air midsole, instead opting to create six individual ‘mini-bags’ attuned with the foot’s natural articulation. Described by Nike designers as a kind of “[Nike] Free for Basketball,” Hex Zoom Air allows for precise impact absorption – a key ingredient in a shoe designed for a player with a 40+ inch vertical.

The design of the shoe itself has yet again been reimagined. Eschewing the panelled armoured look of previous models, Nike have introduced Megafuse which cuts down on the necessary layers of the upper, using a composite synthetic ‘booty’ that molds to the player’s foot over time.

The initial seven LeBron 12 colourways are inspired by LeBron James’ game, physical attributes and the analysis that went into the development of his latest signature shoe; kicking off with the LeBron 12 NSRL – the lead colourway of the launch that reflects Nike’s research, testing and analysis into make King James a certified legend of the game.

The Nike LeBron 12 ‘NSRL’ launches 11th October 2014. For more information, please email us at [email protected]
