Something for the Weekend

Words by Cameron McLauchlan

Kicking off this weeks edition of Something For The Weekend is a lovely knitwear piece from easily my favourite brand and one the hottest out right now
Aimé Leon Dore.

Aimé Leon Dore Ribbed Raglan Sweater 

Taking aesthetic cues from 80s and 90s, the brand feels much older than its 2014 birth day suggest’s. In a good way. Its recent collaborations are a testament to how successful their brand is at sparking feelings of nostalgia in us.

The brands most notable link up with sports car king Porsche was truly beautiful. Ill let the video do the talkingLink to Sweater and even more appetising video of a vintage 1990 Porsche going sideways through the snow.

Carharrt WIP Single Knee Pant 

Big painter and decorator vibes! Theses pants from the kings of workwear, whilst white, are constructed in a way to be able to take a battering. These are easily coupled  with with either loafers, boots or sneakers.

Nike Blazer Mid ’77 

This very sneaker helped lay the foundations for the subsequent Nike sneakers which changed the course of sneaker culture forever. Before the Dunk High or Jordan 1, there was the Blazer.

Bringing it back almost to the beginning, with the first Blazer being released in 1973, this 77 is as close as it gets to the original iteration. Simpler times in the 70s in terms of design has allowed this sneaker to travel through time as a fashion staple. Used in smart/casual and street fits.

A View to a kill print 

In the wake of the news that the new Bond film has been pushed back until November, its out with the new and in with the old.

This print from Roger Moores last bond film A View To A Killis one of the best on the 007 web-store and whilst the film wasnt all that great, the Duran Duran theme tune and movie poster surely make up for it.
