James Long for TOPMAN Fall / Winter 2012 Knitwear Collection

Topman enlists London based designer James Long (knitwear extraordinaire) for a Fall/Winter 2012 Knitwear capsule.  Inspired by such sweater wearing icons such as members of the Sex Pistols, the Base City Rollers and of course Bobby Gillespie and Keith Richards, elements like aran, dots, stripes, and hints of lurex define the 8 piece collection.

Perfect.  Can't wait!  More looks below:


Undercoverism Spring / Summer 2012 Menswear Lookbook

Undercoverism Spring / Summer 2013 Menswear lookbook is a quirky look at artistic inspirations.  A bit scattered overall, there are some very interesting pieces that I can see having both commercial success and a hit with the fashionistos.  I would say that the majority of the looks aren't for me personally, but I can imagine a lot of my friends pulling it off quite stylishly.  I do, however, want the pancho/cape with STOP MAKING SENSE on the back and the buttondown with the leopard piecing.

What do you think?

H&M X Maison Martin Margiela Launch Event

Events like this makes me want to move to NY so bad!  For the H&M x Maison Martin Margiela launch, a huge party was thrown in an abandoned building in downtown.  Never one to follow convention, the collection was shown off by the internationally renowned dance company Rosas from Brussels through beautiful dance compositions and artists like Daniel Arsham and Noemi Goudal interpreted the design house's ideas.

In-store launch date is soon!!!  Will you be waiting in line?!
