Converse One Star Hairy Suede Launch

Converse launched a new trainer this week and they definitely let us know about it. Collaborating with Size, an event was held in the Converse London office to celebrate the launch of the Converse One Star Hairy Suede, which turned out to be the perfect post-work hang on Thursday evening. Guests received a pair of the newbies as a pre-party gift and we didn’t go short at the party with a free bar (courtesy of Smirnoffand free food (mac and cheese… nom)!

Photographers, bloggers, stylists, music artists and pretty much every type of creative flocked to the event with a one-in-one-out policy having to be enforced by 8.30pm. The venue allowed for that ideal balance of party vs socialising and they even surprised us with a live performance from Last Night in Paris.

An updated take on the classic with a focus on premium material, check out the new addition to Converse right here. RRP £65. See my footage from the event below (music by Last Night in Paris).


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
