Menswear Shopping Map: New York City

Byuing new clothes is never as much fun as in New York. We tried that ourselves. We know, what we are talking about. But New York is not a small town, which is why you should know where you can buy awesome menswear. 

To not only know that somehow, but specifically, the Blog “A Continous Lean” created a great New York-Menswear-Shopping-Plan with Google-Maps erstellt. This is where you can find the most important adresses for mens fashion in the city. 

It’s no surprise, that the most menswear stores are located in SoHo, south of Houston-Street. But also off the grid, as on 5th Ave and NoLita, are interesting Shops, for instance in Brooklyn. But try out yourself: Here is the Google-Map “Men’s Shopping in New York City”.

We really want to fly to NYC right now, to try out this Shopping-Guide. Would someone please be so kind and sponsor us two Business-Class-Tickets and 5000 Euro Shopping-Budget? 

P.S.: Only drinking is more fun than shopping in New York. But thank god, “A Continuos Lean” has a solution for that too. You can find it here.

Mega-Increase: Hedi Slimane has doubled the Sales of SAINT LAURENT within just three Years

One can say whatever he wants about the obsolete skinny-silhouette, the always-same leather jackets or the steady recourse to the 1970s and glam-rock: people are buying that shit.

Since Hedi Slimane became the creative director at SAINT LAURENT three years ago, the sales have doubled. Only in 2014 the annual sales climbed up to 27 percent to 707 million dollars – that has been released by the luxury concern KERING, to which Saint Laurent belongs.

For forward-approached and avant-gardistic fashion that is not much of a good sign.

It is going to be interesting to see, if GUCCI is going to proceed after the same principle. The Italian label is by far the biggest brand under the KERING-concern, with 3,5 billion dollars of sales per year – and has a new creative director, Alessandro Michele, since this year.

TRENDS

 

C’est cool: Patches!

We are urgently asking for jackets, pants or sweaters, which carry an uncountable amount of patches.

Since we do not have time, nor the passion for a fabulous DIY-piece, were hereby want to ask all the PR-agencies on the planet to send us designs by their fashion-designers, which have patches on them (you can find the address in our legal info)

As often, Raf Simons was the pioneer of the trend ‘patches’. Or at least the designer, who’s influence can also be found in the collections by other designers. Simons showed designs in his SS 2015 collection, which showed images of personal memories (friends, family, astronauts, sharks etc.). He used the patches as some sort of mood board.

Kit Neale and Astrid Andersen have refined their pants with patches in their current collections (AW 2015). Sandro PARIS did the same with their already mega-hot leather jackets. And the Danish young designer Martin Mitchell made a jeans-vest.

The rule ‘the more the better’ counts of-course also for the patches trend! Go for it!

New York Fashion Week: Hood by Air AW 2015

HOOD BY AIR presented their new collection ‘Daddy’ in a cellar-like setting at the Wall Street, the centrum of finance.

The mastermind behind HBA, Shayne Oliver, showed classics from the world of fashion, like button-down shirts, sweaters and polo t-shirts in the typical unisex Hood by Air Silhouette. Therefore it came to an hybrid between polo shirt and dress. Or camel coat and tank top.

The models wore locks in-front of their mouths and tights over their heads, like burglars. The soundtrack of the show, total freedom, was ended drastically, followed by jazz, underlined with the statement of the Empire:

“I wanna show you a faggot really can run this company”.

It becomes obvious how appreciated HBA is also in the art-world, when looking at the guests who attended the show, for example Klaus Biesenbach and Grace Coddington.

It seems that HBA, even after the diss by their once supporter A$AP ROCKY, is still very hip.
