Song is dope. Video is wack. Is that Didier Drogba or ASAP Rocky in the video ? Can’t tell one from the other.
We already told you about the breaking news (Alexander Wang being the new Creative Director at Balenciaga) a few days ago on our Facebook page. Yet, our illustrator and fashion editor Geraldine wanted to share her interpretation of this unexpected piece of news on your favorite blog! Hope you like it!! Read more »
A few weeks ago, John and I realised that we had never introduced you to French shoe maker Septième Largeur although we both own pairs from them that we wear all the time. John first bought a pair of burgundy double-monks a few years ago and had me buy the same pair in black. Since then, this is the pair I’ve worn the most. Why ? To put it simple, we believe this is the best price/quality ratio we’ve found. The durable leather, the engraved soles, the classic shapes and elegant lasts all contribute to the success of Septième Largeur since it was created in 2009 by Marcos Fernandez (who happens to be the guy behind Bowen, Emling and Markowski… just sayin’ !). He personally cares about all the design and draws the shoes himself. Check out some photos I did in their Parisian store near Saint-Lazare. Check out their online store!! Read more »
Made-to-measure clothing has numerous advantages that you already know about. Unfortunately, made-to-measure always comes at a price tag that deters most of you from even considering it. After more than a month strolling around the streets of Paris to present you the best Parisian Tailors, I’ve come to a point where I felt like there was a real gap between the ready-to-wear clothing and the bespoke/made-to-measure options. Guillame Rousseau created The French Tailor not so long ago but understood something had to be done with a more accessible tailoring concept. The French Tailor is now proposing made-to-measure shirts, suits and coats at the very price of ready-to-wear. Interesting right ? I guess you wonder how it is possible ?! Well, the measurments and fittings are done in Paris by Guillaume Rousseau himself and the confection is made in Shangai. Not a fancy Italian atelier nor an on-the-verge-of-vanishing French workshop. So how’s the quality ? That’s what I wanted to check by myself so I got a dress shirt made and well, it is difficult to spot any misconception, even for an educated eye… Read more »
I know this is a gift giving period but why shouldn’t we think about self-gift-giving ?? On the tabs for the sexiest bag of the universe distinction is the Proenza Schouler PS11 Mini Classic. Totally irresistible and eye-catching in metallic hologram leather. Oh shit. It is out of stock already. Maybe Christmas Father has some samples left ? (link) Read more »
Diptyque recently released (namely through Colette e-store) a special holiday collection for Christmas. Declined into 3 different flavors (Amber Oud, Sapin Doré and Oliban), I personally have a crush on the red Amber Oud one (above), see the description by yourself: this essence inspired by the Arabian Nights resembles a precious stone where rare spices infused with warming resins and balsams plunges the user into an Oriental dream world. Cool gift, isn’t it? Priced at 52€. Read more »
“Rejex” is a compilation of tracks that didn’t make it to Joey Bada$$’ debut mixtape “1999″. Knowing that, that shit is all the more impressive ! A couple of tracks were recorded when he was 15 years old (“little rachel”, “indubitable”, and “silent knight”). By chance, he ended up releasing them here. Amazing beats and a real emcee flow. Fucking promising. DOWNLOAD LINK.
