Welcome to Something For The Weekend, i’m sure you’re all equally as glad as I am to see the back of that disgustingly long January.
In this week’s post I’ve chosen a couple of full-price pieces from the new season and a couple of sale items from last season which are somehow still hovering about!
Carharrt WIP Stetson Denim Jacket
Providing the optimum level of thickness, it can be layered with a thick hoodie or T-shirt, depending on what type of winter we get this year…
To discover the bit-size history of Carharrt and Carharrt WIP check out ‘Something For The Weekend #6’.
Due to the mild winter we’re experiencing so far it’s definitely a T-shirt under jacket kinda week. With an umbrella of course.
This T-shirt formed part of an unexpected but completely believable collection between Japanese street-lux brand Undercover and brit cult-classic film A Clockwork Orange. A film that even to this day is hard to top on the scale of disturbing. But an important film in the history of iconic screenplay’s nonetheless.
Undercover on the other hand doesn’t have such disturbing narratives. After being founded in 1993 by Bunka Fashion College graduate Jun Takahashi, the brand quickly translated into an international success becoming an early fixture in iconic Parisian store Collete. Following on from this Jun began to show at Paris Fashion Week in the early 2000’s with the support of fellow designer Rei Kawakubo.
Some of the more recent coveted bodies of work have come in the form of recent hype collaborations with Supreme x Public Enemy in 2018, on-going collab’s with Nike— and last seasons link-up with luxury heavy hitter Valentino for FW 19/20.
The link to the T-Shirt is in the image, I would 100% recommend having a browse at the last stage of Mr Porters SALE. Some of the discounts are insane!
Nike Air Force 1 Premium ‘Bark’
An instant yes from me as soon as I saw these on the sneaker forums earlier on this month. These AF1 premiums rarely get more premium than this. The blend of earthy leather’s and suede’s is what makes sneaker mouths like mine water.
It’s Incredible to think that the shoe which originally released in 1982 was discontinued only two years later. To be re-released two years after that.
The amount of iconic iterations since have surely put it near the number #1 spot, if not at the top for greatest sneaker of all time.
Stone Island Pistachio Ripstop pants
