Levi’s Japan adds another line of impressive denim offerings as it unveils the “New Modern” range. Inspired by the intricate works back in the early 1900s, the range comes with a strong attention to detail that’s evident to the elements applied. The “New Modern” line offers an outstanding choice of straight cut jeans and slim fit jackets, all made from stretch fabrics. Now available through select Levi’s stockists in Japan.
Thanks to a number of artists (not excluding Jay-Z), rap feels new again in 2011. And the 24 year-old Theophilus London is one of the biggest reasons for this. A Trinidad-born, Brooklyn-raised rapper with a penchant for borrowing ideas from unlikely places, London talks about the Smiths and David Byrne; he raps in front of a guitar band; he sings. The elements of his songs are novel and give them extra grab. This is especially true with “I Stand Alone.” Check out the music video from my favorite "blipster rapper"
Crooks & Castles does it again with their collection for Fall 2011. They continue mixing elements of laidback style with urban flare and live up to the innovative vision that marks their brand. Some highlights are their set of tees that play with the Chanel No. 5 graphics, as well as their gingham button downs and their throwback cardigans. Their stadium jackets don't fall back either and are good compliments to their collection of fitteds. Overall one of my favorites for this coming season so far.
