Nigo is the undoubtedly one of the forefathers of streetwear. He left Bape over two years ago to focus on other ventures, and the brand is still thriving today. One of his most notable projects to date is his new label Human Made. It is a unique situation; Nigo, native to Japan, has created a line centered around Americana graphics and motifs.

 

While Bape was more true to streetwear’s rugged reputation, his new line’s offerings propose an antithesis to the common aesthetic. Still irrevocably cool, Nigo injects his 50’s era adoration into Human Made’s graphics with whimsical illustrations. This season is marked with signature style graphics and highlighted by Nigo’s take on the classic striped tee.

 

The collection is available in store and online at RSVP Gallery. For more information or to place an order email [email protected] or call (773) 770-6666.

Recent collaborations with Supreme and NikeLab, along with cosigns from artists and musicians have brought Stone Island to the forefront. Despite the label’s recent success and step into the scope of popular culture, Stone Island has been quietly crafting for 34 years and counting. Massimo Osti’s innovative sportswear brand has been perfecting every aspect of its garments, whether it be through fabrics, fibers, or the dye used to give the clothes their discernible appearance.

 

The brand stands upon two pillars: LAB and LIFE. According to their philosophy, LAB is the endless examination and exploration into the metamorphosis and enrichment of fibers and fabrics. This dedication to constant advancement has led the brand to the forefront of new production and dying techniques that have been previously unutilized in the clothing industry.

 

LIFE. “The lived experience, the identity, the perceived status of anyone who wears Stone Island.” Stone Island has deep roots in subculture, and the aesthetic emulates that of military uniforms and workwear. Each garment is a testament to their modus operandi, providing the utmost functionality to the wearer, without sacrificing the labels refined style.

 

Check out the photos above and the video above, as our team attempts to emulate LIFE, one of Stone Island’s “two souls.” The collection is available in store and online at RSVP Gallery. For questions or to place an order, email [email protected] or cal (773) 770-6666.

You Cut Me Off: Off-White Video Lookbook

From the gritty inception of Pyrex Vision to his most recent collection, titled “You Cut Me Off,” Virgil Abloh has yet to pigeonhole himself. Each collection proves an audacious adventure into numerous themes, seemingly building upon one another. Abloh has said that he has yet to reach what he deems “good work.” He continues to push the envelope, introducing new styles, medias, and mediums, in an attempt to reach that summit.

 

This season continues with classic diagonal graphics strewn across shirts, jackets, and accessories. Abloh drives his stock upward, introducing expertly aged and distressed jackets and jeans, as well as drapey hoodies and pullovers. Check out the video above for a quick preview, and the photos below for a more detailed look into some of the key pieces from the season.

RM 121: Raf Simons FW ’16

If you were to look at a retrospective of Raf Simons’ collections in the past 20 years, you would think that he has one of the most mercurial temperaments conceivable. Compared to someone like Rick Owens, whose collections often bare the same muted tones and draped silhouette’s, Raf’s vision seems disjointed. But so is youth subculture.

 

Simons has been at the forefront of rebellion in fashion for over two decades. His collections are distinctively moody and resonate on a continuous cycle, parallel with youth culture. Nearly all of Simons’ offerings are worthy of grail status and those able to procure the rarest pieces fall into the realm of guys like Kanye West. With stints at legendary houses like Jil Sander and Dior, Raf has carved his name into history.

 

After leaving Dior, Simons’ level of energy for his namesake brand has been noticeably higher. The newest season keeps the expected level of quality craftsmanship and introduces an interesting narrative on the overly oversized trend. Taking notes from traditional English-prep and scout styles, Raf spins sweaters and coats with elongated, billowy silhouettes and contrasts them with slim destroyed sweaters and classic button-ups. Signature jeans, denim shirts, and shoes round out the collection and make it one of his most memorable to date.
