Alex Carapetian and Alonso Ester, of LA-based brand Longjourney, share a passion for vintage garments. The duo sifts through vintage shops and flea markets in Los Angeles to obtain materials for their collections. According to an interview with Complex, 99.9% of the pieces incorporate some or all vintage. Their aesthetic pulls inspiration from military garments and athletic gear — such that one of their staple pieces from the newest season incorporates an old Champion sweatshirt, combined with velour.

 

“A respect for tradition and progressive outlook.” Longjourney’s website references this as what they achieve when creating. Final touches set in place by hand, which advances the narrative each piece tells. When repurposing vintage clothing, each article has its story, and Longjourney aims to make each piece modern and give it “new” life. The final product is a reincarnation of contemporary clothing with definite nods to equal parts vintage, modernity, military, and athletics.

 

Our team took the latest offering from Longjourney and notes from their aesthetic for our interpretation to the brand’s unique appearance. Take a look at the gallery above for a full look into what just landed. Longjourney is available in store and online at RSVP Gallery.

Alexander Wang’s show at NYFW was a spectacle in itself. The event, which he called “#WANGFEST,” brought out a plethora of fashion heavyweights and superstars alike to the warehouse at Pier 94 in Manhattan. After an hour, eager fans saw Wang’s newest collection, as well as one of the biggest surprises of Fashion Week thus far.

 

Wang’s namesake label has been known for intertwining street and popular culture into full luxury collections. This year was no exceptions, as models journeyed the runway in surf-inspired jackets, tees, and hats. Wang has become synonymous with the color black, but this year he showed attendees a wealth of new patterns and graphics.

 

Perhaps the biggest surprise came after models showed the full mainline collection. The room fell black, and the screen at the front of the runway showed an obscure video, ending with an upside down Adidas logo. The lights came back up, and all of the models came down the runway in a mob of black athletic gear, unveiling his upcoming collection with Adidas Originals.

 

Shortly after the unveiling, the Screen in front of the runway rolled away to reveal the show’s after party; a small town featuring a full service 7/11, complete with candy, donuts, and slushies, McDonald’s which served burgers, fries, and breakfast, along with an abundance of surprises for guests. For a full view of the runway show, check out the gallery above and make sure to stay tuned for news on the release of Alexander Wang’s SS ’17 collection.

Yeezy Season 4 at NYFW 2016

Kanye West showcased his Yeezy Season 4 in collaboration with Adidas collection yesterday to kick off New York Fashion Week. Many of West’s friends and cohorts trekked to Roosevelt Island to get a first look at this season’s offerings. Fashion heavyweights like Anna Wintour and Virgil Abloh were in attendance alongside celebrities including Spike Jonze, A$AP Ferg, Russell Westbrook, 2 Chainz, A-Trak, and the majority of the G.O.O.D. Music team.

 

The show began as spectators made their way up the stairs in the park to reveal a field of models in Yeezy bodysuits. Vanessa Beecroft provided ambient music, as models journeyed around the triangular catwalk that encapsulated the bodysuit-clad women. This season featured a bevy of sweaters, bottoms, outerwear, backpacks, and New Yeezy shoes in West’s signature muted earth tone color selection. The most talked about pieces from the day: The heels. Models struggled to walk the full length of the runway, as they experienced difficulties, such as broken heels. Despite the hiccups, West delivers another robust season, although fans are still awaiting Season 2 and 3 to hit shelves.

 

The RSVP Gallery team got an invitation to catch the exhibition firsthand yesterday. Check out the video above for the look at the full line and the gallery below for a detailed look into West and Adidas’ newest season. Make sure to stay tuned for more info on Yeezy releases.

New York City-based label Robert Geller helped debut the newly established Men’s Fashion Week with his Spring/Summer 2016 collection.  For the season, Geller pays homage to the windy summers of his upbringing by the North Sea. The collection sources inspiration from the water, wind, and billowing sails, but don’t expect simple navy stripes from Geller. Geller’s S/S ’16  collection saw silhouettes with an emphasis on movement crafted from worn-in washed fabrics that imitated alterations made by the sun and salt water. In typical Rober Geller fashion, the wet haired male cast was heavily layered. Lightweight silks and linen’s were monochromatically paired and accented with texture in the form of sailor’s rope  or wool caps.

New York City was the place to be last week and naturally we made the short trip from our headquarters in Chicago to the east coast. The city that never sleeps was even more lively than usual as both New York Fashion Week and All-Star weekend took over the streets. We kick started our week at the highly anticipated Kanye x Adidas presentation. With Adidas giving the reigns of creativity to its collaborators, we’re not surprised Kanye’s capsule collection was monochromatic perfection.  On Saturday, we put the fashion shows on pause to show love to the Just ★ Don All-Star Weekend pop-up shop hosted inside the Jordan 30th anniversary exhibit. Our second stop was at Robert Geller. Geller’s models truly demonstrated how not to sacrifice style for warmth for the A/W ’15 season with effortless layering focused on proportions. Last on the agenda was Hood by Air and although we’ve come to expect their outlandish presentations it definitely doesn’t make them any less interesting. HBA designer Shayne Oliver continues his mastery of dichotomies, as seen on fur coats with box logos, male models in skirts, and generally clean cut tailoring with streetwear accents.
