The new collection designed by ‘Amy Winehouse’ allows us to see the sophisticated, fashionable side of her  rather than the booze hound, drug addict she is normally conveyed as.

Crepe City 3

Leave a comment

Today saw the return of ‘Crepe City – the london sneaker festival’, celebrating the UK’s underground music and fashion culture. The event was held at the Bar Music Hall in Shoreditch , the event was a place where eager fashion enthusiasts could go and embrace the urban fashion culture. On display was some of the rarest and exclusive sneakers from Jordans to Airmax’s. The movement originally started when 3 guys who all shared the passion for sneakers (trainers) and had an idea that there should be an environment where other enthusiasts can come sell, buy, talk and generally share their passion for the ever so comfortable and popular footwear. Today would have been the 3rd instalment of this unique event with so much more to come in the future. The creators of Crepe City also integrated the ingenious idea of being hosts for some of london’s most successful underground fashion labels, the idea was for these labels to come down and showcase and sell their stuff to an audience who love and support the UK underground scene. Today saw the attendance of labels such as Benjart, Trapstar, VAG, PINS, 360 (pictured below) and many more.

‘Sean John’ to ascend on Europe

12 Comments

P. Diddy has successfully introduced his clothing line ‘Sean John’ to the european market, the brand received a warm welcome from potential buyers and is said to be retailing in stores in the fall of 2011, the move has been in the planning stages for the past three years but was set back due to the economic crisis, Diddy and his team showcased the upcoming Sean John collection to potential partners and buyers, the collection consists of men’s sweaters with intarsia military motifs, slim fit jeans in faded khaki washes and silk bomber jackets. The suits produced under license with Peerless included a navy blazer with silver button along with accessories essentially the new collection breaks away from the stigma that Sean John is full of ‘baggy’ cuts in its designs. Diddy stated that the european buyers who had seen the designs were very much surprised and ‘Almost anyone who has come here today was like, ‘I thought the product would have logos on it, I thought it would be baggy,’ when actually it’s timeless fashion, it has a little aspiration and it’s very clean…it’s great product.’ The target market in Europe would most likely be similar to its prime U.S. niche, being 25- to 28-year-old men and the price points will be dependant on the licensing and the retail partners. Pictured below is a sneak peak of what is to be expected from the new collection.

Yamaha X Akoo

Leave a comment

Rapper T.I’s clothing label ‘Akoo’ and superbike specialist ‘Yamaha’ have come together in collaboration to develop the new superbike dubbed ‘Yamaha YZF-R1’ which was unveiled at the Magic Tradeshow in Las Vegas last week.  The finished product came as a result of ‘Akoo’s’ design team collaborating with custom sport bike designer and builder, Rob Uecker, from ‘Voodoo Industries’. The bike takes on Yamaha’s rugged, modern street-king look where as the shape gives it a sleek futuristic finish, the ‘AKOO Yamaha R1’ is a work of art, an ingenious master piece and ‘Ralph Reynalds’ of Akoo had this to say about the bike;

“Rob Uecker creates custom inspired creations, each one better than the last. The AKOO Yamaha R1 is truly one of these inspired creations. From a design, power, and style perspective the combining of our two different brands, VooDoo Industries’ magic has brought about truly inspired beauty. Rob being the artist, the Yamaha R1 being the medium, and AKOO being the inspiration, we are fortunate and extremely appreciative to have been involved with this project.”
