Time to declasse this joint a bit, here is the latest from Miami based Stay Rats and their fall14 range. Graphic tees, toques (beannies for you yanks) and Champion sweatsuits, what the fuck else did you expect?
Got damn there is so much realness in this autumn/winter 2014 collection from The North Face Purple Label. I don’t even know where to start, incredible styles for men and women throughout the range.
One of the best brands out today in my eyes is Phigvel Makers Co. They just nail it season after season; good pieces, collections and presentation is what to expect and this Autumn/Winter 2014 collection proves just that.
Here is a look at the latest from a brand we haven’t featured for a while, Old Joe and their fall/winter 2014-15 collection. The brand has been trucking along at a solid pace since we last featured them with their SS12 collection. The latest for the FW14-15 season is just what you would expect from a label with as high caliber as Old Joe, timeless styles paired with unsurpassable made in Japan quality and craftsmanship.
Been patiently waitin’ on the latest from the Fuct camp and here it is, the Fall/winter 2014 lookbook for Fuct’s SSDD line. The collection titled, Put your Money Where your Mouth is, is shot by Rick Rodney, same photographer as the last few SSDD lookbooks and he nailed it again on this one. The collection itself is pretty on point, but not really as cohesive as the previous, this one doesn’t look to have a real specific theme but I really don’t need that shit I just want to see some raw street styles and this fully encompasses that; house shoes and sweatpants with the snorkel, and flip flops and sock on the elevator in the telly (the Stuart at that).
After taking a few season’s off of posting Champion Japan its time to bring it back into the mix here at 8485. I wasn’t super stoked on the SS14 collection, especially the presentation, that said this season’s isn’t perfect but I like the majority of the styles and the overall vibe of the collection itself. The styling is just too ‘soft’ for me, especially the prep aesthetic that I can always do without. But the highlights are the pieces themselves, the Reverse Weave and made in USA goodness is just so real to not feature, oh and there is some ladies styles as well!
