The latest Chuck 70 from Converse’s collaboration with JW Anderson, is not a toy.


The latest Chuck 70 from Converse’s collaboration with JW Anderson, is not a toy.


 

 

Converse x JW Anderson
*Chuck 70


july 018

What makes something art, anyway?

At some point in our youth, we stop playing with toys. But the obsession we have with “things” grows stronger as we get older. We dress as a means of self- expression. We buy objects – however mundane they might be – because they deliver happiness into our lives. Some collect sneakers. Some collect Pez. And some, like Jonathan Anderson, collect art.

 

 
Converse_20180607_Converse_JWAnderson_KUMQUAT_LE-MILE-Magazine.jpg
 

The Converse x JW Anderson Chuck 70 Toy is the exuberant result of this life-long obsession. 

Anderson has said, the creative process is a giant patchwork of information and imagery “in search of the new, weird, and wonderful.” As the designer continues his collaboration with Converse, he applies this process to, and his passion for art and craft, to the mainstay in fashion and style, the iconic Chuck.

A brilliant combination of textures inform the design of the Chuck 70. “Gloss” in the form of patent leather, an exuberant application of color, and laces that mimic the stucco of San Francisco, make even the most youthful of sneakers, feel toy-like. But maybe, after all, the Chuck is art.

If we think of Karl Lagerfeld, his impressive personality + inimitable aesthetics come to mind first. Today, an exclusive capsule collection presented by Mandy Bork and designed by Karl Lagerfeld is now available at Zalando.

What all have in common: they form the perfect liaison of Lagerfeld's iconic design handwriting and contemporary streetwear influences. Most looks are in black and white. Highlights in pink and red create contrasts and transform the creations into unmistakable eye-catchers. Big KARL logos throne on the pieces.

july 018

For the autumn+winter 018, LAURENCEAIRLINE unveils a collection where each garment was thought as a vacation snapshot, having fun with friends, feeling free, joyful and naturally happy. A wardrobe as a tale of new horizons, you can wear in the city or at the beach alike.

Each clothes mix simple shapes with playful gelato pastels or the vivid colors of the beach towels. They are also spiced up with patterns inspired by the tarmac of airports, stripes of the beach umbrellas you can find on the pop seasides, or the 70s blossom wallpaper of a kitsch bungalow.

You will also find our emblematic long sleeves shirt, rethought with bold colors, soft or sometimes audacious stripes, but that can finally become a djellaba for the more relaxed ones. Pants and sweatshirts will mix easily with the colors of the t-shirts and the jackets, creating graphic and vivid or romantic and soft shades. Contrasts between retro and technical fabrics, thin or big stripes, big splashes or soft touches of colors, create an evolving and playful silhouette.

*pre s+s 019


july 018

Pre-Spring collection 2019 was inspired by the beauty of nature, as well as ancient landscaped woodland garden Leonardslee started at the end of 19th century in West Sussex. This beautiful garden has breathtaking views of the English countryside and blooming displays of Rhododendrons and Azaleas, which sprouts create incredible plant patterns. A floral easiness and transparency are the theme of NADYA DZYAK new collection. 

Being brand’s signature pieces transparent dresses + blouses, made of airy summer fabrications, cover a body like fluffy clouds.

Due to masterful combination of pleated details and flounces together with geometric cutouts and asymmetric silhouettes, the new collection sharply reveals a theme of femininity and sensuality. Traditionally, NADYA DZYAK collection is defined by the use of intricate hand-stitched elements and bespoke sophisticated elements of décor. The main colors used in the collection are smoky vintage rose, vanilla, coral red, the tints of amethyst and light mint.

*Seasonal Chuck - Fall018 


june 018

By 1970 the Chuck had evolved to become the pinnacle of function and utility for sport, and was considered the best basketball sneaker ever. The Chuck 70 is built off of the original 1970s design, with premium materials and an extraordinary attention to detail. A shoe so rooted in tradition that it has its own instant history.

That’s the Chuck 70. It’s not a shoe. It’s the shoe.

Chuck 70 Trek Tech – Easy to wear. Tough to crack. 
The Chuck 70 Trek Tech shoe is a classic recrafted with obsessively high-function details. Engineered with a tough canvas upper, hiking laces and a popped toe bumper, this pair goes as hard as you do. 

Chuck 70 Color Block – Don’t sweat the details.
We did that for you. The Chuck 70 Super Color Block sneaker has design details for days, like ombre washed laces inspired by evening skies and graphic hues on the upper and midsole. 

Chuck 70 – The best thing just goz better.  
This is what happens when you obsess over the details. You obsess, obsess, and obsess. You get Chuck 70. Chuck 70 – The best ever. 

Gator Glam – Elegance meets utility. 
Your feet deserve the finest things in life, which is why we’ve remixed the Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker in a glamorous gator-textured velvet. It’s okay if you want to pet your shoes.

JOSHUA MILLARD
Resort 019 


june 018

The Resort 19 collection from Joshua Millard pays homage to the pastoral undercurrent of the brand. Inspired by his childhood memories and the farming culture of Dorset. The collection encompasses agricultural references with luxury fabrics including;

lamb nappa, sandwash silk, organic cotton, wool crepe + trigrado shearling.

 
Joshua-Millard-Pre-SS-2019-Spring-Summer-Collection-LE-MILE-Magazine-1.jpg
 

Simplistic, effortless and fluid silhouettes are teamed with relaxed tailoring and a range of contemporary suiting. Farming and pastoral references are incorporated in to a multitude of feminine and masculine separates, lending to the integral premise of layering at the heart of this collection: silk and alpaca knit jumpers, field jackets, dungarees and shearling scarves. 

With previous successful womenswear collections accomplished, this season Joshua embarks into the realms of contemporary menswear. Continuing to grow and diversify his much-loved British brand. The whimsical colour palette of the collection pays reverence to Joshua’s rural roots including: earthy plaid browns, muted plum, eucalyptus, primrose and soft grey and creamy off-white tones. 

Hero pieces of the collection include the dorper brushed cotton kimono trench coat, perndale nappa jacket, ryeland reversible shearling coat and brushed mohair jacket made from 100% angora goat hair, which exude agricultural references yet highlight transitional ease of wear at the brand’s core. 

As ever, sustainability is at the forefront of his brand. Working with independent makers and farmers who share the same regards for sustainability and conservation. The brand places great emphasis on the quality of fabric, with the endeavour to ethically sourcing all the shearling used throughout the collection from Josh’s family farm in Dorset.

A percentage of sales then being donated to local wildlife preservation.

BAND OF OUTSIDERS
*spring+summer 019


june 018
 

Following autumn+winter 018’s depiction of a winter-sport holiday, Band of Outsiders’ key inspiration for spring+summer 019 is a college trip to Italy. The collection brings together a complete everyday wardrobe, playfully embracing this season’s theme, with varsity inspired jersey, ‘dropped collar’ tensile shirting, and ultra-lightweight unstructured tailoring.

 

 
 Design Director: Angelo van Mol  Brand Director: Daniel Hettmann

The accessory offering this season includes bum bags, bucket hats and visors stamped with thebrand’s updated B logo.

Boxy printed camp collar shirts are worn as twin sets or paired with straight trousers, just as workwear separates become a modern suit version highlighting the nonchalant tailoring options. Amix ‘n’ match of formal and leisurely is seen throughout: Band of Outsiders pair a tailored shirt with vintage inspired tracksuit, or double breasted suiting options with ‘pop over’ rain oversized rain jacket.

This season also sees a number of highly anticipated collaborations, including Italian sportswear cult label Sergio Tacchini and quintessentially British eyewear brand Kirk Originals.

The prints were designed by Brooklyn based artist Amit Greenberg who is well known for his projects in collaboration with Colette. The artist’s drawings were inspired by memories of excursions to ancient roman ruins across Italy, playing on the Italian school trip theme explored across the collection.

The presentation will mark Design Director Angelo van Mol and Brand Director Daniel Hettmann’s 4th collection for the label.

Boris Bidjan Saberi
*Cultish Cuts and Consistency


june 018

written MALCOLM THOMAS

Bass.

It was the first word that came to mind when I thought of the Boris Bidjan Saberi collection. On the docks of the Cité de la Mode et du Design a caravan of stone-faced models in distressed leather stomped by. Tape tailing behind them like fury. The walls shook as slouchy silhouettes in grey, brown and black bounced with the hardness of the beat. Much like the drum Saberi marches to.

 

 
Lookbook_SS19-Boris-Bidjan-Saberi-Paris-Fashion-Week-2018-2.jpg
 

Cultish cuts and the un-fragile fragility of the fabrics made the anti-fashion fashion mainstay someone who didn’t disappoint. You won’t find any cutes-y flower motifs here. One thing Saberi is good for, among many others is consistency. Probably the reason why the crowd paid homage to Saberi by wearing it, head to foot and why when the show ceased, sans finale walk (because who even does a finale walk anymore, right?) the crowd howled. 

The line-up stood ghoulishly along the periphery of the runway as guests took pause, turned around and realized it was Saberi’s way of letting us see the clothes one last time.

So like sheep we huddled, pushed, and shoved, getting our shots, selfies and IG stories in amongst a line-up of Saberi soldiers in muted hues.

*is Gone With the Wind

written MALCOLM THOMAS

Three women, performers, dubbed the “VIBS Air Repair Service” remove cloths from wind turbines made of recycled sheets. In their tea-colored muslin uniforms they control the wind, and therefore, the show. Medieval bonnets, linen khaki suits, and chunky roped sandals make my acquaintance. A scalloped seersucker dress blows by; a raised polka dot shirt raises my heart rate. 

 
Henrik-Vibskov_LE-MILE-Magazine-Paris-Fashion-Week-Sprig-2019-VICTORJONES_5.jpg
 

 “One can’t see the wind, but it shapes and changes things on its way forward,” said the program. Everything but my mind. I’m now convinced Henrik Vibskov’s high concept, slow fashion approach in this day and age, is rather avant garde in it itself. Even more so than the clothes to be worn. And to be honest, to dissect a collection like Vibskov’s is like taking the brush from a painter before their final stroke. 

Vibskov gave new breadth to the phrase, wherever the winds blows. Layering his models in parachute prints, vintage-like “Soap Opera” sweaters, and Madras button-ups. “Due to Sudden Weather Change,” (the name of the collection), was much like the human experience, it was vast, varied and wasn’t always easy to interpret. But like Tina Turner once sang,

“the wheels just keep on turning.”

*for Protection

written MALCOLM THOMAS

It was hard and plastic. Cut-outs of crosses, eagles and axes decorated the Sankuanz show invitation. At the time I didn’t know they were Shangguan Zhe’s interpretations on border patrol.  I didn’t know what to expect. Then the lights dimmed. There was no time to settle in.

 
 Sankuanz Men's Spring 2019
 

I was hit hard by chain mail tops, silver jewels that hung from hoods, and pick axes used as accessories. Social uniforms and protection. White Chelsea boots paired with pale violet denim. Made in Japan. A slick PVC raincoat that had me wishing for rain, and a leather cowboy zip-front shirt evocative of the Mariachi costume had me thinking about joining the rodeo.

(I wish I was kidding).

I mean this is the same brand who created a sandal for your sneakers. Just you know, umm… slide and strap em’ in. A collaboration with Puma. This season in a full line of colorways. And since we’re on the subject, whatever your hue, chic is the look. Tonight, I encourage you to wear your armor.

Sankuanz for protection.
