David Beckham Launching Homme Aftershave

David Beckham Launching Homme Scent

David Beckham is launching Homme by David Beckham , his third fragrance with Coty, which is apparently meant to have a more masculine image. Steve Mormoris, senior vice president of global marketing for Coty Beauty, told WWD,

David Beckham Homme is a strategic launch for us and represents a key new orientation for the David Beckham fragrance brand — getting back to the male roots of the brand, enhancing David as an athlete and an aspirational man and building a new pillar to the David Beckham franchise.

Although Homme sounds like it’s all about the branding, here’s a breakdown of the scent: top notes of citrus, ginger, pine and fiery pepper; a heart of cashmere wood, leather and rosemary, and a drydown of mahogany wood, patchouli and skin musk.

The print campaign was shot by Alasdair Mclellen and a commercial is on its way…

P.A.M. A/W 2011 -

Hunting and gathering, following seasonally available wild plants and game, is by far the oldest human subsistence method.

Nomadic groups make and sell textiles, deal in animals and pictures, and play music. These sedentary groups work in towns as scavengers and hangmen; elsewhere they are snake-charmers, tinkers, bag makers, and singers; they dance at feasts and tell fortunes. They play music and made sieves, brooms, and wooden spoons. They have taken to horticulture and poetry.

We make Superdenim – Supernoir S/S2012

WE MAKE SUPER DENIM Summer 2012 collection “Supernoir” official video preview.

We MAKE SUPER DENIM is a young denim company born and raised in Torino, Italy, very few miles away from the city of Chieri where Blue jeans was first produced already in the 15th Century.

This is clearly what we are not: we are not a multi billionarie denim company run by executives and statistics and we are sure not part of any cheap soul-less chain raping every high-street in every European city out there.

We are a small independent company proud to design and manifacture our entire collection in northern Italy where we are based. We love what we do, every season we try to connect our collection to a SUPER-concept feeding our own true originality and true creativity.

Tenue de Nimes Indigo-dyed Chuck Taylor All Star

Tenue de Nimes Indigo-dyed Chuck Taylor All Star

Tenue de Nîmes is launching a collection of special, hand-dyed, natural indigo, customized Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoes that will be released during Amsterdam Fashion Week this summer. On July 15th Tenue de Nîmes will host a ‘Down-Town’ event in their Amsterdam-based store to celebrate the release of this limited edition shoe.

The Chuck Taylor All Star serves as a perfect muse for Tenue de Nîmes. With deep roots in style and culture, both the Chuck Taylor All Star shoe and indigo denim have led somewhat parallel lives. The Chuck Taylor All Star shoe and a pair of jeans have long been a staple of youth culture and music and have served as a symbol of independence for decades. Fittingly, Tenue de Nîmes asked the legendary denim experts, the Manabe family from Okoyama in Japan, owners of the Momotaro brand and Rampuya dyeing factory, if they would be able to indigo-dye a limited amount of 50 pairs.

Mr. Manabe agreed, and kindly provided us with 50 pairs of stunning hand- numbered shoes, dyed in natural indigo. Because of the irregular composition of natural indigo, the shoes all have a different signature. Each shoe is unique thanks to the traditional craft of hand-dyeing and the use of natural ingredients throughout the process. Every shoe is decorated with a Tenue de Nîmes cross on the inner sole. The shoes are sold in a Ramupya natural cotton bag and are exclusively sold at Tenue de Nîmes in Amsterdam for €89,90. During the event on July 15th 2011 Tenue de Nîmes will officially present the limited collection of indigo Chuck Taylor All Star shoes along with an exhibit on the Japan-based dyeing process.

Ransom by adidas - Autumn/Winter 2011
For this Fall season we decided to take a journey to a place we know best; coastal British Columbia and the expansive Pemberton Icecaps. In our formative years, we all put in a lot of time at these areas, thus we de-cided to share a little piece of our history and it’s natural beauty.

Utilizing a helicopter to capture the best of the terrain as well as to gain access to some never before seen spaces, capturing the essence of both the land and the Fall/Winter 2011 season all in one. This introduction short gives a glimpse of the The Tantalus, The Crest and Chase silhouettes.

adidas Y-3 Autumn / Winter 2011-2012

For Autumn/Winter 2011-12, Y-3 hits the road with a collection inspired by the nature of escape—on horseback, on foot, and into the hills. The season’s campaign follows this theme which ultimately is about the journey and not the destination. Artist Collier Schorr created images as well as the campaign’s mood video titled: Beneath, Between, Beyond by contrasting hyper – colored landscapes by the photographer David Benjamin Sherry with two figures who likewise seem otherworldly.

Monkee Genes related to Red Monkey Jeans?

Monkee Genes related to Red Monkey Jeans?

Not sure whether there is any relation between Red Monkey jeans and Monkee Genes but they both use strictly organic denim.

Monkee Genes was born in 2006 out of a frustration and boredom with the jeans market and offers a fresh, vibrant and youthful direction.

Innovative fits and style lines in top of the range fabrics, classic denims with a retro twist and luscious sateen in pop art inspired colours.

Quality of fit and make are high on our schedule, in a world of cheap and disposable fashion manufactured without soul or identity, Monkee Genes offers an antithesis.
