Kelvin Krash drops debut album HARSH
Kelvin Krash has dropped his hotly anticipated debut album, HARSH, which is available via his own platform, Krashed. The project dropped on September 29 and has guests such as A$AP Rocky and COUCOU CHLOE on the record. Previous singles from the album include “BLUE WHEELS” and “PROMISE YOU’LL WAIT,” hyperpop tracks which bring atmospheric synths to the North West London musician’s infectious beat production. The album is a product of pure self-expression, entirely produced by Krash himself.
Pop Trading Company and Miffy team for a third collaboration
Pop Trading Company seamlessly fuses its skateboarding roots with founders Peter Kolks and Ric Van’s sharp eye for menswear and wider cultural influences. This year, the brand is celebrating its tenth anniversary, and to celebrate has created a new collection of wish-list-worthy originals with Nijntje, the Dutch book character originally known as Miffy. Working with Vans Skateboarding, they have created three Miffy colourways of exclusive Pop Trading Company and Vans sneakers. Multiple knitwear items, two gingham style button-downs, striped crew-neck long sleeves and a hooded sweat with Miffy applique detailing accompany the footwear collaboration. Also released are T-shirts, printed matter, caps, bell hats and suit pants featuring the iconic Miffy and her friend Melanie. The Pop and Vans skateboarding shoes are now available exclusively at poptradingcompany.com.
DUKE + DEXTER takes us way out west for its latest campaign
As part of its latest collection, DUKE + DEXTER has channelled some Western energy into its campaign inspired by cowboy boots, cattle-wrangling and charms of the wild wild West. Not only does it look great, its latest offering serves to further expand the brand’s womenswear offering, too. Drop One from the upcoming collaboration showcases two completely new silhouettes worn by Luca Fersko: the Moby Boot and the Winston Mule, which look just as good on the ranch as they do in the streets of Soho.
Daniëlle Cathari and Woolrich continue their partnership for FW23
Exploring functional dressing, Cathari played with the concept of indoor tailoring using outdoor materials. Classic Woolrich fabrics are used to craft formal, fun styles to offer a playful and sophisticated take on classic dressing. Traditional trucker jackets, 5-pocket jeans and a tank top have been reimagined into a refined bouclé style. Cathari approached each look as a distinct energy, which embodies the Woolrich woman perfectly, portraying her in a casual and fun manner.
Puma and Ottolinger team up for second collaboration
Fashion and sportswear are having it off at the moment, and we love to see it. Ottolinger and Puma have teamed up for a second time, teasing the collaboration with a series of co-branded monster trucks in the French capital and showcasing the latest items as part of its FW23 show. The renowned Mostro Boot retains classic elements like its signature spiky sole and is infused with chrome metallic elements and hot pops of colour. The boot pairs straps with a chunky silhouette, while a mid-cut sneaker enhances the shoe’s design DNA with dynamic wrap-around lace. The iconic patent leather handbag also features amongst the offering, making a statement with its text bubble shape and emphatic branding.
ROBYN LYNCH launches direct-to-consumer collection
Dublin-born menswear designer ROBYN LYNCH has launched a direct-to-consumer core collection consisting of wearable pieces featuring the brand’s signature Eire motif and logo with embroidered thread in an inclusive size range to be worn by anyone and everyone, including the brand’s first-ever children’s collection. The collection was first previewed in a collaborative film made with Not Another Agency, which saw the collection worn by a range of models and styled to show the versatility of the pieces. The collection is available to purchase exclusively from the ROBYN LYNCH webstore.
GUESS Originals to launch first gender-neutral fragrances
GUESS Originals has launched a trio of gender-inclusive fragrances that capture youthful energy and celebrate individuality. The collection consists of three distinct fragrances: Type 1, Bergamot and Vetiver; Type 2, Red Currant and Balsam; and Type 3, Tobacco and Amberwood. GUESS Originals’ trio of scents is a testament to the commitment to inclusivity and self-expression, celebrating the multifaceted nature of identity. Each collection will be available to purchase at select GUESS stores, retailers and online at the GUESS Originals’ official website.
Ugg and Telfar team up again
Ugg and Telfar have teamed up to give Ugg’s Mini Boots and Telfar’s popular shopping bag a denim makeover. Classic Telfar shoppers will arrive in regular sizes with a soft shearling lining, and the boots include a die-cut shearling Telfar logo bootstrap. To launch the collection, both brands teamed up with musician Ian Isiah, who showed off the new items in a bathtub. The co-branded products are available to purchase at UGG.com and in select stores.
Represent announces Icons T-shirt release
To celebrate 12 years, Represent has curated a selection of iconic graphics from previous collections and combined them into one commemorative T-shirt. The limited-edition tee is a visual representation of Represent’s history and a testament to the brand’s commitment to excellence. The brand’s previous graphic collections have married with British motorsport, which serves as a pool of inspiration for Represent, relating to the themes of speed endurance and a champion’s mentality. The Icons T-shirt will be released for one hour at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, October 4, via the Represent webstore.
Portuguese brand ISTO. has us winter-ready
Founded in Lisbon in 2017 by three friends, ISTO. brings understated seasonless menswear staples made to a superb quality to exist outside of the trend cycle – a true definition of slow fashion. Choosing to operate outside of seasonal releases, it has produced a solid roster of shirts, jackets and beanies, which will be available all year round but are perfect for the season ahead. To get your hands on the collection, head to the ISTO. webstore.
