Last night I headed down to Kachette, Shoreditch for the launch of the Puma x Ader Error collaboration. Effortlessly cool Ader Error is a contemporary brand founded only in late 2014. The fact that in less than 4 years since their launch they are already collaborating with brands such as Puma speaks volumes and looking at the collection you can see how they created a name for themselves so quickly.
Patta x Carhartt WIP “Wild at Hartt” Collection
A new menswear collaboration is set to launch this week, which is causing a little bit of a buzz on the streetwear scene. We’re soon to see Dutch brand Patta and the US company Carhartt WIP join forces as a celebration of Patta’s 10th anniversary.
We were all able to have a sneak peak at the collection in their recent Lookbook launch but the official release is this Thursday. The launch will take place at London’s Goodhood store- followed by an after party of course!
What to expect from the collection? Think autumnal shades of tan, black and grey, minimal designs and immense quality. You’ll see some of Carhartt’s iconic pieces reworked for the collab, including their Chore Coat and Active Jacket. Minimal with statement slogans seems to be the trend for men this winter, which is exactly what we’ll get from this collection along with some definite investment pieces. Watch out for the launch in retailers 4th December, 2014. xx
Alexander Wang x H&M
“I live in gym clothes… When you go out on the street, it’s the uniform now,” were the recent words of Alexander Wang. I couldn’t agree more.
A man who shares the same enthusiasm towards activewear as myself collaborating with one of the high street’s favourite retailers (H&M), now that’s something to be excited about! We saw a glimpse of what’s soon to launch for both men and women across certain H&M stores in the Wang x H&M catwalk last week and I for one, was not let down. This is one seriously hot collaboration- sports inspired fashion at it’s best!
Launching on November 6th (perfect pay day timing) the range will be available in selected stores and online. Be quick because this won’t be hanging around for long. I predict lots of eBay Wang H&M searches will be stacked up that week! Prices vary from £24.99 crops and £29.99 shorts all the way through to more pricey, but completely worth it and still really affordable, £179.99 jackets and we see similar prices for the men too. With black as a key colour- always a winner- there’s going to be sports chic everywhere this winter.
I am absolutely in love with this collection and can’t wait to see plenty of men and women rocking this contemporary sports vibe! For the women, my best piece has to be the strappy crop and for the men, the ‘Choose Your Player’ tee (can I choose the guy wearing it please?) and black hooded jacket are my faves. The men’s range is amazing and even includes some super sleek boxing gloves!! You guys have to take some time to check it out…
Missed the show? Have a cheeky view below of what these two huge fashion names have created. I’ll be counting down the days until the 6th. See you in the queue! xx
