GEYM gets its name from the mantra of America’s 19th century explorers: “Go East Young Man”. At that time, conquering the East was a source of ingenuity and fulfillment. By creating the Transcontinental Railroad, companies redoubled their efforts to link the West to the East. Two centuries later, connecting to each other is more relevant than ever. The Paris-based streetwear label GEYM was founded in 2016 by Thomas Erber, Charles Gaston-Dreyfuss and Claude Sérieux.
Before launching the brand, Gaston-Dreyfuss used to produce a line of T-shirts working with Paris-based street artists. Sérieux previously worked as product director at Paul Smith then Yves Saint Laurent, under Hedi Slimane. He went on to launch his own record label while continuing to consult for brands like Kolor and Y-3.

GEYM’s SS18 collection is inspired by the ocean, and how the ocean has been interpreted through centuries of Eastern and Western art. The movement of waves, the strength of the wind, and the different shades of blue on the horizon have all provided inspiration for this collection.

This collection, remaining true to the GEYM spirit, includes technical fabrics often mixed together: water resistant, coolmax, and 3 in 1 transformative items are at the core of GEYM’s sensibilities.

Hero pieces from the collection include kimonos, sailor trousers, and innovative interpretations of layering. New functionalities are key to the GEYM aesthetic, while never losing sight of GEYM’s core urban street aesthetic. GEYM is an encouragement to exchange and innovate to be in tune with its time, looking towards the future. With the objective to accompany and support the movements of the Man of the 3rd millennium by providing them comfort and protection. This genius and symbolic way of thinking inspired a collaboration between these guys are two other guys called Damon Albam and Jamie Hewlett and the latter’s creative, iconic outlet ‘Gorillaz’. Inspired by Hewlett’s iconic imagery for Gorillaz, a teaser capsule will launch on July 1 at selected stockists worldwide, with a full line inspired by the characters set to launch at the end of the year.

WORDS BY ISAAC PERRY

We’re now beginning to see snippets of the weather one would’ve expect at this time of year in paradise or as some others would call it England, usually questionable however this year its looking on the up and hopefully we haven’t spoken too soon. What you tend to find in modern styling is that the actual outfit in itself takes a bit of a back seat at times with the accessories completing and making the overall look, therefore these are some of our key accessories for this summer to elevate your personal style!

Bucket hats-

The 90’s was dominated by full tracksuits a pair of clean trainers and not forgetting the headwear hats! From Hip Hop’s Run D.M.C to Manc Indie Gods The Stone Roses, well Reni, were very much ambassadors for the classic bucket hat. But thanks to the ever so dominant streetwear scene and influencers within it, this style has come back with a vengeance and is doing the rounds this very Summer with our number one pick being the Kangol Bermuda White bucket hat.

Jewellery-

Some would of thought that Men’s jewellery had reached its peak however the demand continues to grow with items such as rings and bracelets becoming key pieces in your sartorial gent’s day to day outfits, with the Great Frog being our number one pick for adventurous men’s jewellery.

Whilst we’re at it we cant forget necklaces these add that little something to an open shirt look whilst walking along a white sandy beach or over a clean white t-shirt, basically you can’t really go wrong.

Jean chains-

Very Rock n Roll nonetheless something which we believe could become a staple piece within wardrobes very soonit is the jean chain, this helps outfits that would have previously been considered as basic only improves the look as an overall, there are many available with ones including beads and others such as key (fake) in case anyone was wondering, We find ASOS offers the widest variety at the best pricing with classic designs all available.

Sunglasses-

Possibly the most obvious one! Sunglasses offer varieties like no other and this Summer we highly recommend you venture out of the norm, try a different shaded lenses with pretty green offering a Red lenses, these automatically make you stand out from the crowd and improve your overall summer style.

Whether it’s working out in the gym, commuting on a packed tube, hot offices, or after work drinks on a sultry evening –  staying cool and fresh can be a challenge, particularly when the forecasters are predicting temperatures into the 30’s by the weekend. Indeed, 54.7% of Brits claim they suffer from heavy sweating and around 5% of the population are diagnosed with Hyperhidrosis (the clinical form of the condition). And according to Dan Bracey, the sweat expert, yes that’s his actually job title, for ODABAN antiperspirant, the problem is compounded by the UK’s typically humid summer weather, which leads to increased perspiration and feeling increasingly hot, bothered and embarrassed. In reality, practically everyone is affected by unwanted body sweat, often at precisely the wrong time – such as during dates, before work presentations, at the gym, travelling, or simply going about one’s daily routine with embarrassing sweat patches and body odour. Fortunately, Dan explains that by using the right antiperspirant and applying some simple tips, even sufferers of excessive sweating can stay noticeably cooler and fresher.
