Converse: Made by You

Made by You is a campaign from Converse celebrating the life and times of their Chuck Taylor All Stars, via curating a selection of sneaker portraits by international icons including Patti Smith, Andy Warhol and various British talents from fashion, music and art including gi & Sam, Sibling, Sean Frank, Sam Taylor and Shay Ola. Each one has shared their Six Word Story, a snapshot of their Chucks experience.

Made by You in London
.

London Chuck fans will have their own chance as one of our local creatives, artist Damilola Odusote, will create an original Made by You art installation in Shoreditch. Damilola Odusote is British born with Nigerian routes, whose sculptures combine everyday objects with abstract techniques to challenge our perceptions.

.

In the spirit of his creative identity, Damilola has captured his own take on Sneaker Portraits – thousands of polaroids of Londoners wearing their Chucks and sharing their Six Word Stories – assembling the images to create an ident art structure of London’s iconic outline.

.

Damilola will construct the one of a kind installation by hand within a gallery space on London’s Shoreditch high street, with the support of students from Central Saint Martins.The sneaker portraits will be an urban celebration of the self-expression and will feature a diverse group of characters from London and encourage them to make their own mark on the classic sneaker.

In recent years Africian culture has been on a continual rise in the fashion industry. Not only the rise and recognition of more african models, but also the prints and patterns used in collections. One Nigerian brand driving this rise is Okunoren Twins. Established in 2002 by the two Okunoren twins Taiwo and Kehinde, the brand has revolutionised Nigerian fashion with its bespoke tailoring. Now for the first time this coming spring summer season the collection will be available in the UK.

.

The brands focus is on very traditional African style tunics embellished with details hand crafted in local villages close to the Lagos birthplace of the brand. The pieces have look very laid-back and comfortable, perfect for the not-so-serious individual.

#ClientStyle: Champion SS/15

Champion-FEAT

.
Champion
is a sports brand that has always been on top of its game. Established in 1919 in New York, Champion is known for pioneering a number of iconic sportswear designs including the Reverse Weave fabric in 1938, the first athletic sports bra in 1977 and the first ever hooded sweatshirt in the 30s. It is hardly surprising that Champion has won a place in all of our hearts as one of the leading, most influential sportswear brands of all time. 

.

For this coming spring summer season Champion is reintroducing the Reverse Weave, the unique technique that prevents materials shrinking and helps to extend their lifespan. The collection pays homage to the brands history and has a very retro, and nostalgic sports feel about it, with its big Champion ‘C’ logos and bold primary colour fabrics. Theres also matching print tracksuits, joggers and hoodies. This spring summer season also sees Champion stocked in the UK for the first time in over 10 years, stores included are Selfridges, Present London, Oi Polloi and Hanon amongst more.

#ClientStyle: Tonsure AW/15

Single Breasted Coat in Navy Wool[2][2][1][2][2]
.

Ever wanted to be as comfortable
as a teddy bear all day long?

 .

When Malte Flagstad, creative director of Tonsure was designing a new warm coat for the Scandinavian brands’ Autumn Winter 2015 collection, he got ‘hit by nostalgia’ and instantly thought of the cuddly material of a teddy bear, and nobody makes a better bear than the world famous German manufacture Steiff. It was then that Malte decided to collaborate with Steiff to help him design the new Tonsure pea coat, made from the warmest comfy teddy bear material. The collection also features an array of toasty woollen suits and quaint shirts with lovely embellishments of colour and patterns. Best of all every jacket, coat and waistcoat made in collaboration with Steiff has a soft mini Steiff teddy attached to it. Visit Tonsure

#ClientStyle: Soulland x Lee Collaboration

.

Denim Jackets and jeans are generally classic, plain and simple. The unfortunate thing about denim is it can be a little too plain and simple, so it is nice when brands design something a little more interesting. Thats exactly what happens when you put the legendary denim brand Lee with contemporary brand Soulland.

.

Together the brands have collaborated together to design a unique polka-dot-patterned jacket and pair of jeans. The perfect pairing of Lees 125 years experience with Solland’s fresh take on menswear means the results are contemporary mens fashion with a flare of fun. It is the first ever collaboration for the Danish brand and the designer had this to say about working with Lee:

 .
‘As one of the first branded collaborations, we are very excited to be working with such an iconic global brand as Lee’.

The pieces are a refreshing take on such a popular look with the heritage of Lee stitched nicely together with Soullands contemporary twist. See samples below…

#ClientStyle: Brutus Trimfit SS/16 x LAW Studio

FEAT1shadow

Boldly British and beautifully reborn, Brutus Trimfit streetwear
is back and so too are its iconic cuts and colours.

.
Marking its 50th anniversary, Brutus are launching a fresh new collection for Spring/Summer 2016. This time round Brutus has teamed up with LAW Studio & magazine, established in 2011 and based in central London. The studio has been working closely with Jonathan Freedman, (son of Brutus founder Keith Freedman) to expand the current range and develop a new collection. LAW magazine editor John Joseph Holt had this to say about working with Brutus on the new range:

.

We are really proud to be working with Brutus, a brand that has enjoyed such an affectionate association with so many British sub-cultures. 50 years is a tremendous milestone and we are excited about introducing the brand to a new generation and continuing the Brutus family legacy.”

.

The new collection is a definitive array of timeless British classics and popular modern cuts with a cool Brutus twist. Most famously reworked is the trendy Brutus jeans. Incredibly popular in the 60s and 70s with mods, skinheads and footy fans, the new collection boasts the same bold flare cuts and light blue colour that Brutus fans love. There’s also new check print shirts tailored in the elegant ‘trimfit’ way, perfect for any smart casual occasion. There is even a Brutus take on the modern jogger trousers in big block colours. The quality of the SS/16 fabrics and tailoring, are sure to reignite the nostalgic love for Brutus as one of the truly quintessential British brands. The images below are of the SS/15 Collection, available now.
