MAS VISION X FRESH LACES

Fresh Laces have teamed up with state side graphic designer MAS Vision to create this 'Mowabb' inspired SnapBack.

Its no secret that the Fresh Laces team are big lovers of the Nike Air Mowabb colourway and ACG, so again it's no surprise that its this was the shoe they wanted to pay homage to!

This collab has turned MAS Vision's clean Huarache Mowabb illustration into dope piece for any sneakerhead. 



The SnapBack is releasing this Saturday, 26/10/13

THE COLOUR COLLECTIVE X DRONEBOY: PART 2

Part 1 of this collaboration between The Colour Collective X DroneBoy was a massive success!

I genuinely didn't think Part 2 could top its predecessor, but I am happy to admit I was wrong. The Colour Collective have been throwing up teasers on their Instagram of the next instalment to the collaboration, and I just want to see more!


Levi promised us in our chat in the lead up to the first drop, that this one would be darker, and he's made true on his word.

BRASHY COUTURE - OFF DUTY PANDA TEE

A friend of mine, Maria Pizzeria, a fellow The Unisex Mode contributor, has just released her first collab for Brashy Couture.


Brashy Couture is street apparel "for the irreverent and brash". Brashy Couture was founded in Stockholm in 2010 and is based out of LA. 

I love a good quirky t-shirt, and this one is brilliant.

IS IT IS THE SHOES? - FINAL DAY!

It is the final day of the "Is it the Shoes?" 4 day sneaker festival hosted by We Are Parable.


Make sure you get down today, there is loads of stuff going on! I haven't been able to make it down and I am so gutted! I wish it had been on for longer, so don't miss out like I am!

I have seen and heard such positive things from this exhibition over the last few days, it's been a massive success!

TERRIBLE MOVEMENT

I was very recently introduced to Terrible Movement, an ethical fashion label that I had never come across before, but one that I will most definitely be keeping an eye on from now on.


Terrible Movement have just released an editorial Look Book ‘Avant Garde The Time For That’.

The editorial exhibits their AW13 collection, with a dark and edgy vibe which endorses the same kind of feel as the collection itself. With blogging for Talk Casuals and contributing for The Unisex Mode, its no secret that I love a collection with a masculine cut and style. I am a sucker for a brand like this one; a brand who, like myself, take a relaxed stance on gender-blurring fashion. This collection proves quite rightly that less really is more.

NIKE X LIBERTY: THE SNEAKERBOOT COLLECTION


Liberty X Nike collaborations have been a great success in the past, especially with the availability of the Liberty print on Nike iD. But have they over-done it?

The latest Nike X Liberty of London collaboration is launching this month. "The Sneakerboot Collection", including the popular Air Max 1, will be available to buy exclusively from Liberty.

This collection consists of, in the words of Liberty, "the ultimate winter sneakers". In their traditional fashion, the Liberty X Nike collaboration are continuing to combine modern street style with iconic British design.

THE COLOUR COLLECTIVE X DRONEBOY: PART 1


The Colour Collective aren't a new name to Talk Casuals, and for good reason. This is a brand with a lot of great people behind it and I love nothing more than supporting a brand that puts in the hard work.

You'll remember The Colour Collective from our Talk Brands collective and I have been closely following the growth of the brand. I am so impressed with this collaboration, I really love the print which combines together the two iconic illustrations of both brands.


I caught up with Levi Thomas from The Colour Collective again before the first drop of the new collaboration with DroneBoy tomorrow.

NOW AVAILABLE: NIKE SB STEFAN JANOSKI "DIGI FLORAL"S!

We're a massive fan of the "Digi-Floral" craze, and we're definitely all over a good pair of durable footwear, so together I think that makes the perfect combo?!

Following the pink "Digi-Florals" we posted about way back in March, comes two new colourways in that addictive pixelated print.

These two new colourways have completely different feels about them. The first is a rustic looking colourway featuring a 'photo blue' against that crisp white embroidered swoosh. This pair are an absolute no brainer for the autumn season, especially with that canvas upper, they're practically perfect.




This pair have already gone out of stock online at Nike, so act fast and pick up a pair online now from Lost Art at £65! These are scheduled to drop at a few more stockists, but if I were you, I wouldn't risk it. With a full run from UK6.5- UK12, Lost Art are your lead stockist for this colourway right now!


Next colourway up looks to me like the love child of the pink "Digi-Florals" and the Black Florals we saw back in June. That burnt Orange works so well on a monochrome background. These are definitely a winter warmer! These are now availible online from Remix Casuals, Lost Art and Bored Of Southsea. Again running from sizes UK6.5 - UK12, but if the limited sizes available on Nike are anything to go by, stock is going fast! Do not sleep on these!
