Thom Browne continues his collaboration with architect Flavio Albanese of ASA Studioalbanese on the design of its newly opened store located within the Moore Building of Miami’s innovative Design District.

Behind Browne’s signature slat blind covered windows, the grey subway tile-wrapped boutique features a mobile wall installation that can be shifted to visually transform the space. Outside of the brand’s signature tailored and sportswear offerings, the store’s men’s and women’s assortment is tailored to the temperate climate through the use of seersucker, linen, and lightweight wool fresco fabrics. The mid-century furniture throughout the store is by American and French designers including Pierre Jeanneret, Dunbar by Edward Wormley, Paul McCobb, Jacques Adnet, and Maison Jansen.

Browne notes, “...I am excited for my store in Miami...the design district feels right and feels special and unique within the city...I felt it was important to be part of the design district because of the importance that the area places on art...and my approach to the design of the store is unique to Miami...my grey tile box...i felt the design district deserved a unique retail experience...”

Fresh Off the Runway: 2018 Winter Wardrobe Must-Haves

The Story of Shearling

mcqueen men fall 2018 fashionado

Being cold is not an option this Winter. The runway hosted a wardrobe of armour coats designed to protect a man, so he can confidently take on the modern world, in style. A particularly significant style of coat is the Shearling (sheepskin) jacket, a classic piece of outwear for the Winter. The wearing of sheepskin as a form of protection arose as long ago as the Stone Age, which is fascinating considering it’s making statements on the 2018 fashion runways (almost 2.5 million years later). The coat began on a different kind of runway during the Second World War, which truly cemented the shearling jacket as high fashion when the sheepskin bomber jacket became standard uniform for pilots in the US Air Force.

The historical classic was interpreted by a range of designers and presented on the runway in a host of different styles including; leather, denim, suede and a bomber, all combined with essences of the Shearling. Unsurprisingly, one of the best Shearling coats this season was by Giorgio Armani which contained a mix of brown suede and leather giving the jacket texture and detail and costing $3300. Balenciaga exhibited a modern take of the classic, a black sheepskin jacket as part of the labels AW18 collection featuring a graffiti shearling collar, leaving you $5,038 down. If that’s too hard to swallow, then ZARA have brought out a range of heavy-duty faux shearling jackets that look good enough for the runway.

205W39NYC by Raf Simons - Calvin Klein X Raf Simons

Raf Simons takes the creative reigns at one of America’s most iconic fashion houses, creating a memorable masterpiece at New York fashion week. The designer presented his Fall 2018 Collection with Calvin Klein through the emergence of models through a sea of popcorn that coated the former American Stock Exchange building, greeting the audience with the aesthetic pleasures of sweet-smelling butter. The collection represents a theme that is consistent to his first season at Calvin Klein, which is Simons personal commentary on America. Firefighter coats, boots and gloves provoked thought of the country’s horrific natural disasters whilst silver foil jackets and boots evoked inspiration from the 60s intergalactic style.

The collection also stars the traditions of Calvin Klein underwear, in keeping with the iconic yet simplistic and gender-neutral style of briefs for men and women. The collection is designed with a standout 205W39NYC logo styling and can be purchased from the Calvin Klein website.

Tom Ford F/W18

Tom Ford brings hyper-masculinity to the run-way treating the audience with an erotic presentation of the new Fall 2018 underwear range. The range consists of four basic styles; a brief, a trunk, a short boxer and a classic boxer. Each cut is available in cotton stretch jersey, cotton, and an extra special version of silk. Of course, these outstanding run-way collections have inspired the streets and the replication of the simplistic designer lingerie is readily available offering a cheaper alternative of the classic cotton jersey pieces perfect for the Winter.

Pinstripes

The pinstripe is perfect for a casual business look and embodies quality and fine male grooming as well as being the backbone of any stylish man’s business wardrobe.

Alexander McQueen explores British masculinity starting with a collection of elegant tailored autumnal pieces. The collection subverts the classic British wardrobe, renewing the codes of tailoring and progresses into opulence as the show goes on. A prominent fabric that stole the show is the use of woolen pinstripes which is modeled as a classic tuxedo, worn with jogging pants for a modern subversion and representation of the evolution of true British menswear.

Creating a hybrid of fashion that meets function and a must-have staple for a man’s wardrobe this Winter and many more Winters to come.

Moncler Poldo Dog Couture is a project entirely dedicated to man’s best friend, for which the brand has designed – in collaboration with Poldo Dog Couture – a mini collection for our four-legged friends, to ensure that they can face harsh winters in perfect warmth and total comfort. And let’s not forget - style!

MONCLER-POLDO-DOG-COUTURE

Point of reference for this collection, the classic down jackets, that have now also been extended to include other colors and to be able to dress all of ‘our best friends’.

The clothing features the brand’s most iconic material of all, the nylon laqué and the range of colors has been enriched to introduce new hues, ranging from light blue to baby pink and fuchsia. The waistcoats have been interpreted in two variations: the reversible version comes with a hood and is available in two-tone red and blue, whilst the waistcoat with a practical detachable hood is made in the French flag tricolor. The French flag tricolor in fact also appears in the tape used for the collar and the matching leash. For less chilly days, there is a hoodie presented in bright blue or red colors and animated by contrasting trimmings and by Moncler’s writings.

Études x The New York Times

etudes-x-The-New-York-Times_fy1.jpg

The many histories of a city are documented within all its existent details—the animate, as well as the inanimate—yet, it’s the press that forever immortalizes a city’s biography. Here, our stories are still the stories of everyone; archived and remembered, and forever surviving.

With this season’s arrival, Études is excited to announce their newest collaboration featuring the renowned New York Times logo, centralizing around the general theme of history versus daily information.

Since 1851, the US news organization has influenced and shaped minds beyond its own audience. Throughout this special project, Études appropriates The Times’s logo that in the past centuries and decades has become one of the most recognized symbols.

By translating the news organization’s image onto Études’ new collection— with the inclusion of shirts, caps, scarves, jackets—the continual existence of stories is physically recalled into the everyday, making us remember that our generations are also there to be echoed in those to come.

This collaboration is composed of:

WERNER Cape

WEEGEE Reporter 

Jacket MUNDO 

Hoodie (Women) STREAM 

Hoodie (Men) AWAY 

Shirt (Women) PORTRAIT 

Shirt (Men) UNITY T-Shirts

+ Accessories: 

ZONE Cap

MAGNOLIA Scarf
