Paris Fashion Week '19

Louis Vuitton SS19 Accessories by Virgil Abloh using Fiber Optic lights that change color

Paris Fashion Week this year was pretty dope, from Virgil’s Louis Vuitton SS19 Menswear show or Hedi Slimane’s Celine show, to the Sacai show by Chitose Abe and Dior by Kim Jones. Everyone is pushing limits and sticking to their separate lanes of expertise but still infusing new textures and amazing new details like fiber optics or amazing hardware on Menswear staples and accessories.

Heres a few of my favorite looks from the aforementioned designers during Paris Fashion Week 2019!

Christian Dior Winter ‘19 by Kim Jones. His use of Mathew M. Williams Hardware buckles is Dope.

Sacai FW19 by Chitose Abe. That leopard print biker is fire!

Celine Winter 19 by Hedi Slimane. My favorite look of the show!

Celine Winter 19 by Hedi Slimane. Sucker for a quality varsity jacket and penny loafers.

Sacai FW19 by Chitose Abe. Sacai’s mix of textures is crazy, i love it.

Christian Dior Winter 19 by Kim Jones. Having the models on a Airport escalator instead of walking was dope. Cleaner Pictures.

Celine Winter 19 by Hedi Slimane. The fur is Fire.

Street style was also crazy as people layered and rocked some of this upcoming seasons most sought after garments and accessories. Here’s a few of my favorite looks from th street as well. One day I’ll be featured during Paris Fashion Week for sure.

Christopher Bailey's Final Show as Creative Director of Burberry

Adwoa Aboah and Cara Delevingne star Burberry's Spring/Summer '18 London Fashion week wearing rainbow colored "puffer" outerwear, with 70's and 80's inspired patterns and styling. Also reintroducing the "Burberrys" sweatsuit under the original name with an "s". Sad to see Cristopher Bailey go but intrigued to see where my favorite brand goes from here. Here are a few of my favorite pieces Worn by Skepta, Adwoa, and Gigi Hadid in the Highlighter Trench. The rainbow tye dye trend is becoming more and more prevalent in fashion many different ways as of lately, Burberry standing with LBGTQ rights the motive behind their new "spectrum" pattern and rainbow color scheme.

Paying Homage to Master P and No Limit the choice of "Make'em Say Ugh" as the soundtrack for the Fashion show was a no brainer. This song gets everyone hype and for those who remember the video you got extra hype because of the high energy visuals of what looks like a celebrity basketball game, but it was hood! Baggy uniforms, a gold tank, this video was a classic from "The Box" era. I wanted to portray that same energy with my clothing. Nostalgic aesthetics with custom throwback jerseys, Army fatigues, and baggy silhouettes styled just like the 90's.

Master P was influential in the black community building No Limit records throughout the 90's and early 2000's from the ground up. Staying TRU to his culture, making groundbreaking moves in the entertainment industry, and even playing a few games in the NBA. A true hood renaissance man and someone I look up to when it comes to owning and running my own businesses. I think its important to always make that connection from the past influencers to the current and future ones, so they know when and where our culture comes from and where its headed. Growing up in the 90's, videos were as much of a daily occurrence and influence as twitter today. "The Box", TRL, BET Jams, shit even 106&Park had everyone's attention at some point of their lives for the style, news, and entertainment. I enjoy taking those influences from back then and incorporating them into current designs and marketing. Kind of a reminder of how much things have changed and a way to influence change while paying homage.

Heres a mash up clip of the fashion show and the classic Master P "Make'em Say Ugh" video.

January 13th, 2018 we celebrated the 5th year in business with an invite only Party, and Fashion Show at the Atlas Brew Works Brewery in the Ivy City neighborhood of Washington DC. Keeping things exclusive; having only my loyal customers in mind, and focusing on an authentic one of a kind event. The decision of using a fully functioning Brewery to provide an aesthetic unlike anything our customers and supporters have ever experience before. As well as making things as relaxed as possible with card games, UNO, and Beer Pong available until the fashion Show started. With photography by M9 Images, as well as Life Behind The Scope, and WeTheWav in attendance and Music by DJ LOUD, and No Requests The DJ. Thank you all for coming out, the Event was a total success! Video Recap coming Soon...
