I love doing the weekly news round up. Once I get my team of guest contributors together you can count on me to still do 2 or 3 articles myself a week and this will be one I definitely keep along with the look books/how to wear items. I like doing the news so much because it gives me an excuse to look through fashion sites all morning and find interesting stories happening within the world of fashion. Short sharp mini bullets are great to read through so we can pick up on everything and anything we have missed this week in our main articles.
This week I am going to show you an exclusive Japanese high fashion collection, some new and EXCLUSIVE Stussy and Dr Marten combination boots, as well as voucher codes, some new items that caught my eye and much more. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!
We might as well dive straight into it…
Urban Outfitters have just got this WEB EXCLUSIVE Stussy and Dr. Marten collaboration boot in stock and it rocks! You will not find these in any of your local stores, so if you want a pair you better be quick online. They are made of high quality waterproof suede and have the traditional air walk wedge sole of Dr. Martens. With Stussy being a brand which is synonymous with skateboard and street style, they are very much a laid back casual boot which takes it’s roots from American sneaker culture. They retail at £170 and come in 2 colour ways – black suede with purple detailing and brown suede with green detailing.
Here’s the skinny from Urban Outfitters themselves:
“The powers that be at Dr. Martens and Stussy have put their heads (and feet) together to work on a collaboration that will appeal to both the classic and the casual shoe wearer alike. Drawing on both their street culture associations they have managed to incorporate the British boot culture with the laid back feel of American sneaker culture.”
Check out the colourways below:
They also have got in some great new Acne leather hi-tops and a pair of chunky Nike’s that I have my eye on too:
I purposely missed out these guys in the last few news round ups because frankly they weren’t releasing enough new stuff and seemed to be trying to push out all the old stock before really launching into their new season collection. They are back now though and have released some great new stuff over the last week or so. They are sticking to very much what they do best – with great jackets, new rocker graphic tees and also throwing in the odd great piece of on trend footwear: they hit the brogue and worker boot trend spot on this week. Full round up of the new early collection drop this week but for now see key pieces below:
Oki-Ni are literally the only place I know online who source and stock some of the most amazing Japanese brands I have ever seen. These are always sought after designers who produce some of the greatest design concepts and garments of quality I have ever seen. They do it on a regular basis and that is why I am always keen to see the new designers and collections they are stocking.
Japanese street style is some of the best in the world. They are just so creative with everything they wear and seem to have an innate ability to produce high quality and funky outfits - each with their own PERSONAL quirks which make them INDIVIDUAL to each person. I have spent many hours searching the Internet for inspiration from the culture over there and have added a lot of the little details to my looks over the years in order to show the same individuality every time I dress myself.
Yushutsu are the latest collection Oki-Ni have stocked. I am led to believe they are the only people who have this sought after brand over here (especially in the UK and Europe) and so we can count ourselves lucky we can get our hands on it. There are some truly exclusive pieces within the whole launch which you should look to get in your wardrobe. I guarantee you nobody you know will own such different and amazing items of clothing, and it makes creating a personal look so easy in comparison to all the droids walking round your local city.
Here is an outfit Oki-Ni have put together using their Japanese designers collection – as well as the pieces you need for it – but take a look at the full range today for more inspiration.
Topman seem to be trying to start their own trend right now with the whole “Acid Wash” vibe. I haven’t seen this anywhere else but here right now but it could potentially pick up steam with the whole denim vibe (shirts and jackets) continuing strong for this season. In case you didn’t know, acid wash was massive back in the 80′s when truly no-one had style – scary introduction right?! – but the women have just gone through this denim trend and so there are ways of rocking it very successfully. Again with anything to do with denim the key is to mix your washes and I have noticed the men’s versions are very much a more subtle acid wash which is less noticeable. So take a look at some of the items below that they are pushing and let me know what you think – next big trend or fail?
Burton have got a MASSIVE offer on for the next 2 DAYS online which is 20% OFF. This is going to end up being an absolute BARGAIN so you need to take some time looking through all the collections on offer because you will pad out your wardrobe completely for Autumn/Winter. The discount gets applied at the checkout so there in no need for a code. Here are just a collection of bang on trend items you can get your hands on today – better be quick though, they will sell out fast!
