Virgil Abloh returns with another iteration of his iconic “The Ten” collection, this time offering a sleek version of the Zoom Fly SP. Featuring semi-translucent uppers with signature detailing displayed throughout. Sticking to the deconstructed look, the loosely stitched swoosh is seen on both sides, alongside the classic zip tie detail.
The latest iterations of Virgil Abloh’s iconic Nike Blazer come in the form of the “Spooky Pack.” Just in time for Halloween, the pack sees the sneaker wrapped in an “All Hallows Eve” and “Grim Reaper” colorways. The first colorway features an off-white upper with bright orange detailing, while the second comes in a primarily black upper. Both sneakers then feature a range of signature Abloh design touches.
September rolls in once again, reminding us of the colder weather to come. We headed to the plains for our Fall/Winter 2018 Outerwear editorial, featuring coats from Sacai, OAMC, Off-White, and Reese Cooper. Gear up for the months ahead in outerwear from RSVP Gallery.
Tackle the harshest winter with Sacai’s ultra warm pieces. The Combo Fabrics Blouson, woven from pure wool, is a layered blouson featuring colored quilted panels at the front and an interior lining throughout the jacket. The Wool Check Coat features a half zipper closure, faux-fur collar, and plaid pattern. The coat incorporates an oversized fit, ensuring maximum levels of warmth.
If you’re looking for more plaid options this season, look no further than the Reese Cooper Plaid Wool Anorak and the OAMC Woven Cage Coat. The Reese Cooper piece features a drawstring hem, gunmetal-colored hardware, and Italian zippers from legendary manufacturer Raccagni. The OAMC coat features a removable shearling tag at the collar and welt pockets at the front to complement the straight fit tailored mid-length piece.
Cold times are ahead. Prepare accordingly with outerwear pieces from RSVP Gallery, available online and in-store.
Military garment design has been influencing fashion at an increasing rate over the years. Classic renditions of flight suits, MA-1 Jackets, and bombers from early Raf Simons and Maison Margiela collections are some of the most sought after pieces to date. In the ever-evolving landscape of fashion, designers continue to push boundaries and offer up new renditions of classic military pieces.
Many are doing this in a literal sense, as brands are taking vintage military garments, repurposing, and rebranding them to be “new.” Others are only pulling inspiration from the silhouettes, and modernizing them with slim fits, prints, and different fabrics. Readymade has done a bit of both; they take old military canvas from duffel bags, tents, etc., and repurpose them into new flight jackets, bombers, overnight bags, and novelty items.
The inspiration is unsurprising, as the military plays a significant role in the contemporary era. OAMC realized this in their latest collection and decided to juxtapose the narrative of their collection with the violent history of the military. Replacing bombs with olive branches, a symbol of peace, and incorporating doves into their designs, they attempt to soften the harsh realities that come with militaristic endeavors.
We picked out our favorite military-inspired pieces in the shop to display in our latest feature. All of the items are available in store or online at RSVP Gallery.
