J.W.Anderson Is Collaborating With Uniqlo

jw-anderson-x-uniqlo-main.jpg

Uniqlo has rallied an impressive coterie of high fashion collaborators over the years, from Christophe Lemaire to Carine Roitfeld, to its enduring union with Jil Sander. The latest industry impresario to lend their aesthetic to Uniqlo is none other than British wunderkind Jonathan Anderson, the aesthete at the helm of J.W.Anderson and Loewe. The project was announced this morning in New York, at Uniqlo’s global press preview.

Anderson, who is originally from Northern Ireland, is set to present a line inspired by the British-heritage motifs that have long shaped his work. Given that Anderson is well-versed in the art of collaboration, having linked up with the likes of A$AP Rocky, Versace Versus, and Topshop, J.W.Anderson x Uniqlo is set to be a banger. The collection will include clothing for both men and women and will launch this coming fall.

Emily Ratajkowski has it pretty good. Alongside small gigs like, you know, fronting campaigns for labels such as DKNY and riding around naked on horses, it also appears she’s able to do just about whatever she fancies at fashion weeks around the world.

In a new video for Vogue, Ratajkowski takes us all on a little adventure to give us an insight into what she got up to during Paris Fashion Week. Aside from running around and making funny noises in a French accent, she also got to wear some of the best looks shown throughout the week.

Ratajkowski is seen wearing smoking denim from Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Lauren, boots from Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, chain mail from Paco Rabanne, and much more. Check out her full video diary above.

Here Are Five of the Best Streetwear Stores in Mexico City

The-Best-Mexico-City-Retailers.jpg

Mexico City has become a go-to destination for vacationers over the last few years. With its cheap cost of living, eclectic art gallery and restaurant landscape and striking array of historical landmarks, the Mexican capital is experiencing a cultural renaissance with a new wave of young creatives who are amping up the city’s cool factor in a big way.

Though it may be fledgling, Mexico City’s fashion and retail scene isn’t something that should go unnoticed. Bolstered by raw local talent that blends Mexico’s rich art culture with a contemporary fashion mindset, there’s no shortage in diversity when it comes to shopping throughout the city’s perimeters.

From high-end boutiques that carry some of the most sought-after names in menswear, to local skater hangouts boasting the region’s designers of tomorrow, here are five of the best places to shop in Mexico City.

HEADQUARTER

Owned by local menswear buying maestro Riccardo Campa, HEADQUARTER caters to a clientele with a more seasoned sartorial palette. Anchored by a sizable range of goods by cutting-edge Japanese designers like Undercover, COMME des GARÇONS, WTAPS and the like, the store also stocks a number of quirky bric-a-brac (child-sized Medicom Toy Elmo statuette, anyone?) and exclusive artwork by contemporary Mexican artists. Need a hot shave or a new stock of premium toiletries? HEADQUARTER houses a mini barber shop and grooming corner so that you can look fresh while you shop.

Destructible

After getting your finely-tuned menswear fix at HEADQUARTER, head one floor below to cop all of your skating needs at Destructible. Amidst the vast display of rare Supreme decks and neon skateboard signs, you’ll find an assortment of apparel and sneakers by just about every top-billed skate brand around – Vans, Thrasher, RIPNDIP, Independent Trucks, Dime, Fucking Awesome and counting. The store also serves as a sort of hangout space for the city’s local sidewalk shredders and mosh pit enthusiasts, hence the blaring soundtrack of old school punk cuts and lo-fi skate videos that play on loop throughout the day.

Lucky Bastard

Hip-hop culture isn’t quite as prominent in Mexico as it is up North (or anywhere else in the world for that matter), but Lucky Bastard holds its ground as one of the few spots where rap aficionados can get a taste of old school emcee style. Boasting brands like Hall of Fame, New Era and 10Deep, shoppers can also find a stockpile of long tees, snapbacks and sportswear jackets by the store’s in-house label, which often emblazons its pieces with retro hip-hop graphics and slogans.

Kamikaze

The second brick and mortar space owned by HEADQUARTER’s Riccardo Campa caters to a more youthful consumer with a penchant for all things streetwear and collectible toy-related. Brands like Brain Dead, Parra, BornxRaised and Obey are just a small cut of what can be found on the stores racks, along with a handful of novelty knickknacks by Kid Robot, PINTRILL and more.

Roma Norte 06700

LEMUR

Founded in 2006, LEMUR has earned considerable success within Mexico City’s retail landscape thanks to its knack for merging fashionable savviness with a commercial mindset. From Dr. Martens and Herschel to Timberland and Fjällräven, the store offers a wide mix of mainstream streetwear and weather sustainable accessories – but that shouldn’t overshadow it’s eclectic roster of avant Mexican designers which help preserve LEMUR’s indie cred among visiting fashion savants.

This Exclusive Photo Shoot Shows Why Acne Studios SS17 Is a Work of Art

acne-studios-fashion-editorial-01.jpg

Location: Paris, France

Season: Spring/Summer 2017, Resort

Key Looks: The paisley print camp shirt delivers swinging ’60s vibes in the best possible way, the patent Chelsea boots are too strong, and those side-zip track pants are expertly styled.

Editor’s Notes: Our latest editorial hones focus on everyone’s favorite alt-minimal brand Acne Studios. We strip things back to the label’s genesis (and unpack the brand’s acronym) which is to always possess an “Ambition to Create Novel Expressions.”

Shot in the studio of painter Francis Essoua and Christian Maugein, Acne’s latest wares serve to echo the blurred lines between art and fashion, with raw details on garments set against a backdrop of artworks in constructions.

Watch a lo-fi video of the editorial in action below, and soak your senses into this romantically ravaged visual narrative.
