What’s hot on the street this week.

PALACE

‘Imagine if England was sunny, everyone would be steaming.’ THE BEST Palace description on Spring 2018. The one day of summer we do have as a nation we are steaming, tops come off the and the alcohol flows. You can put your money on the guy with the top off is the undesirable, beer bellied, hairy man with body odour issues, what happened to your Lynx Africa set from Christmas man (apologies if I have described someone you know, for all our sakes ask them to put the top BACK ON).
Back to the fresh garms. Palace dropped TODAY. I am a big fan of Palace let me start there, although this season I like the direction they have gone but I feel very little is for me. As always love the Trifergs, the classic staple of Palace can’t be faulted. The only thing that I am tempted by other than the Triferg is the Balearo Shirt (and P-Moon t-shirt Longsleeve only). This shirt with some black denim and a pair of Air Max would be strong outfit move.
For me the hit list is short, P-Moon Longsleeve Black and Surkit Longsleeve Pink. Possibly Circuit Hoody purple. I will keep you updated with my purchases since none of these are due this week.

NIKE

Well it has been one hell of a week for Nike. The Air Jordan, Black Cement got a secret drop, which I didn’t get a chance on damn who actually took a win here? I am sat on the fence whether or not to cop these or the white Retro EP. If you look about on some sites you can find the Air Max 93 Retros sitting in certain sizes, if you ask me these are the freshest pair Nike have dropped yet this year. Put these on with the Palace shirt above, that would be a fit and some.

Need I say much about J.T. repping some Air Jordans? These dropped right after his performance at the Super Bowl and people went CRAZY MAD for these. Interested to see what happens with the value of these, because at the moment they are at a cra$y hig$.

SUPREME

Is it even my blog without some form of Supreme mention? Probably not.
Time to get excited AF. That is all I have to say so far… 
I will be doing a whole thing on the lookbook when I can get my eyes on it!

STUSSY

Stussy are back today, it really does feel like Spring 2018 fashion is in full swing. Stussy have dropped what they describe as the most diverse collections yet, for those who don’t subscribe to any particular way of being. The idea that everyone can be anyone, and no expression of self can be hurt. Stussy have a strong brand message this time around and look set to be releasing some exciting garments this year. That checkered shirt has me pretty much throwing my cash…

January blues continue.

January is a dreary month, essentially one long Monday. I’m not one of these that is all hyped up about the possibility of new year new me, as my previous post Let’s talk about these New Year resolutions arguably shows. Have a read if you haven’t already. That being said I do enjoy seeing what brands are releasing and trying to get us to spend our lack of money on. Let’s be honest guys, Christmas is amazing, but expensive and leaving us ever so skint.

What am I cheering myself up with? Sadly nothing but the search for a new job. If anyone does fancy being REALLY NICE, below is a list of what I am dreaming of adding to my wardrobe.


 

1. Those of you who look at my style will see I am a big fan of checks especially in footwearSeeing that Vans have reworked some classic styles with a new aesthetic, I am all over. Introducing the Checkerboard Pack. Dropping at the end of this month. I will be definitely adding the Sk8-Hi’s into my collection. These just continue more than a decade worth of my Sk8-Hi’s obsession. These are a must pick up. (Image taken from vans.com)

2. Convere X Comme Des Garcons, Polka Dot. I have been meaning to add both styles of these collaborative gems to my archive. As a fan of both brands, I feel that Comme Des Garcons has really brought something unique to this collab with a bold polka dot appearance. (Image taken from doverstreetmarket.com)

3. Nike X Dover Street Market. Smart, sleek and pristine. Going with the fact a lot of my wardrobe is black I’m sticking to the Black Footwear, Comfort for all the Hypebeasts. These are some of the nicest Air Max out at the moment, first pair of Air Max that has made me pay attention, only other pairs were the X Off White The 10’s and Anniversary Aqua colour way. (Image taken from doverstreetmarket.com)

4. Where would the fashion world be without Off White? Constant streams of unbelievable heat coming out from them and this year looks to be the same. The latest kicks are these hi-tops and In True Off White Fashion they are a statement. Bold smart and elegant, perfect to be paired with some cropped trousers and shirt, then you’re all set for a night on the town, hey why not go wild and ‘paint the town Off White’.

1. Off White, at it again, damn fine print and sleeve print always swings a win for me. Like I said trying to save in January is hard especially when your taste involves Off White Prices.

2. My wardrobe has a lack of The Hundreds and Rebel 8 in it at the moment. I think this year I am going to aim to build up my collection of these under appreciated streetwear brands.

Valentines is coming, (ahh another holiday, this is also my better halfs birthday so extra January savings! We always make a big fuss and this year is going to be no exception). What screams more romance like a dying rose on a tee? Probably A LOT of things, but that doesn’t stop this tee being outright baller.

3. Comme Des Garcons have brought out their Spring Season. This tee for is the winner, two large hearts creating a striking image, the contrasting colours allow each of the hearts to truly stand out. This by far the best thing in the latest collection. (Image taken from Dover Street Market)

4. Thrasher X Atlantic Drift. Thrasher, is a true power house of skate, and if you are into your boarding then you should know this and already be representing these. This time we see Thrasher collaborating with Atlantic Drift for a capsule collection to coincide with Episode 6 of Atlantic Drift. (Image taken from Slam City Skates)

1. Richard Mosse For Supreme.

2. Prodigy. 

3. Chicken Dinner. 

4. Doc Marten X Supreme X Public Enemy. 

Now, I don’t want to go into major detail about these cause, well we don’t even know if these are legit yet. Yet if they are unfortunately the only pieces I am feeling are for me is the Richard Mosse collab. If this is happening we can expect to see Tee’s, Hoody’s, Deck’s and following last years Serrano possibly Vans. If this happens I am going to be all over the Tee, Deck and Vans. So lets wait and see what comes of this leak!

UPDATE: Apparently the Richard Mosse which I was excited to see release is FAKE NEWS. This information comes from a comment direct from the artist claiming that this is false and not going to be happeningI would have liked to have seen this, hopefully Supreme use another great artist for SS18 and in my opinion should see if Richard Mosse would be agreeable for a future collab.


THAT is that then. I will obviously keep you all updated if I cave and purchase something, if I am honest the Converse, Vans and Thrasher Tee are calling my name… I have serious issues.
