favorite looks for girls

wld3003_olys_la new series that has been long over due, ‘favorite looks for girls’ will document how we want our future ex-girlfriends to dress. up first is the classic ‘boyfriend tee,’ with this model coming to you from James Perse. note the dropped shoulder seams – this shirt should also be bought a size or two too big, completing the Sunday-morning-panties-and-knee socks look. it also helps if its well-worn / seen a few dryer cycles. this would also kill with jeans and Chucks. other honorable mentions in this category: androgynous tee’s by Cheap Monday and American Apparel.

J.Crew F/W 2009 Preview

crew51Thanks to Mister Mort we bring you a preview of J.Crew’s Fall/Winter 2009 collection. J.Crew has been so on point as of late, it seems they are really paying attention to what is going on in the market and how to cater to it. Their footwear collaborations have been the stand-out points in the collections to date in my opinion, and with more Red Wing collabos as well as ones with Russell Mocasins and Alden, this time around it is no different. I am also loving the Inverallan sweater collaboration, a piece that I think is needed in my wardrobe. More pics of the preview after the jump…

David Choe: new works from China

choe5David Choe, street artist turned fine artist has been getting busy on his travels in China. He is having a solo show in Beijing titled Death Blossom, opening April 4th, and the show will be opening at three different spaces on the same night. I love his works whether they be in the streets or in the studio, as Choe just has that raw and energy-filled style that is characteristic of his work.  Here are some of my favorite works from his Chinese trip so far after the jump…

ADD Fall 2009 collection

add81Here is a look at Berlin’s ADD courtesy of the Fashionisto. I was unfamiliar with this line and was really surprised with the overall look. The color pallet is somewhat tame with pops of color like some fresh looking hot pink jeans. There are nice looking pants, jackets, and great looking knits with some interesting patterns. This is a line that I am looking forward to seeing more from. More pics after the jump…

WTAPS 2009-1st collection – ‘LAMF’

picture-118

WTAPS returns with their 2009-1st collection, entitled LAMF (like a motherf*cker), and the looks are pretty fresh, seemingly inspired by punk, military, bowling, and brit prep. like a lot of high-end Japanese designers, WTAPS has an awesome philosophy, a ton of high-profile collaborations under their belt, and a product that is damn near impossible to come by unless you live in Japan, London, NY, or LA. more pics from the lookbook after the jump.
