Leah McSweeney Plays Cop or Drop with Prada for Dogs & Supreme Jet Skis

In the latest installment of Cop or Drop, we put a list of 10 wild and weird releases from the Highsnobiety world to star of Real Housewives of New York City and founder of Married to the Mob, Leah McSweeney, for her spending judgment. Having set up one of the first “streetwear for women, by women” labels and collaborated with the likes of Nike, Reebok, and colette, it’s safe to say Leah is tough on product. She gave a respectful, and perhaps unsurprising, drop to that Balenciaga x Croc collab. And a thumbs up to Prada dogwear. After a toe-curling start with the Balenciaga x Crocs and wild Suicoke painted toe shoes, Leah dished out three straight cops in a row for some “Studio 54 feels” Gucci sunglasses, a crochet cowboy hat — which she says she’ll be copping straight after the call — and the bright blue YEEZY GAP jacket. Catch Leah McSweeney’s full Cop or Drop verdict on these products and way more in the video above. You can also shop the already available featured products below,..

The Ultimate Homme Plissé Issey Miyake Buyer’s Guide

Although it’s best known for pleated pants, Homme Plissé Issey Miyake covers the whole spectrum of menswear and the offering is growing by the season. From soft tailoring to jumpsuits and outerwear, there’s no limit to the power of pleats. What’s more, after a year that forced us all to take a hard look at our wardrobes, streamlining for utility and comfort, the fuss-free yet high-end nature of Homme Plissé Issey Miyake makes it an invaluable asset for modern style. Since the Japanese label has risen to the top of our style priorities, we thought it was only right to take a closer focus on what you need to know and where to buy Issey Miyake. After around 25 years of research into pleating, Issey Miyake founded Homme Plissé Issey Miyake in 2013, the male arm of Issey Miyake Pleats Please which launched in 1994. Defined by its undulating textures, the collection relies on the forgiving characteristics of pleated clothing. The wrinkle-resistant, quick-drying, fits-all lightweight fabric..

Start Packing, Here Are Our 10 Vacation Essentials for 2021

We’d put money on the fact that if we asked the world what it was most excited to do after the pandemic, the overwhelming answer would be to go on vacation. Vacations used to feel like a luxury bonus to normal life. Only after being starved of foreign countries for over a year have we realized that they’re an essential aspect of it. New food, new experiences, good weather, and all of the other pros to a holiday are the things that keep us alive and young. Well, it looks like holiday time is creeping closer, so we enlisted the help of Luisaviaroma to round up our 2021 vacation essentials. From sunglasses to swimwear, our market editors have covered the breadth of vacation essentials in style. With selections ranging from Gucci to Merrell, it’s equal doses utilitarian and high-end luxury, which — alongside a good cocktail — is the only mix that really matters when you’re on vacation. So, keep dreaming of the golden sand and warm sun; it’s not far away, and you can take some preparator..

The 12 Fashion Shows That Changed Men’s Fashion

Game Changers is Highsnobiety’s retrospective series highlighting the moments that changed fashion forever. From era-defining store interiors to Nike sneaker boxes and runway looks by Helmut Lang, Game Changers celebrates the things that we still reference to this day. Out of thousands of fashion shows, only a few are remembered for creating a true fashion moment. In considering this list, stylist and consultant Karlo Steel and myself have looked at collections that were pivotal in how men dress or how they view fashion to this day. We begin with Giorgio Armani, the first designer to take that seminal men’s staple — the suit — and change it forever. We end with Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton debut, which cemented the penetration of streetwear into the highest echelons of men’s fashion. We tried to encapsulate shows as they went down in the history of fashion without regard for our personal bias, as much as that is possible. It’s also one of the reasons I decided to bring on Steel, who ..

“No Pretentious Sh*t, Just Us” – How Vivendii Has Swept the Industry

Belt MILLI WELCH Experience this story and others in HIGHEnergy, a print magazine by Highsnobiety, available from retailers around the world and our online store “No pretentious shit, just us,” Jimmy Ayeni laughs when he talks about Modus Vivendii, the Tumblr blog-turned-brand he and his childhood friend Ola Badiru started 10 years ago. Latin for “the way of living,” it was a space to document their lives and perspective on culture, style and fashion from their homegrown label. “The blog was about everything we liked,” Badiru adds. “But it also led us to dig into our roots and showcase the things that influenced us and what Nigeria really means to us.” Badiru takes it back to the beginning. “We were actually born and raised in London and moved to Nigeria at one point in our lives. So it’s like we’re from both places — and the reality of it all.” Ayeni and Badiru met in Lagos after their families had moved back from England at the start of secondary school. They connected over their c..

Suicoke x Doublet’s New Collaboration Is Anything but Sheepish

Visit the original post to see all 5 images from this gallery. Footwear label Suicoke has become a go-to for slippers and sandals, with collaborations ranging from Cecilie Bahnsen and HAY, to streetwear iterations together with TOGA, Brain Dead, Dr. Martens and more. Now, the cult-favorite label has tapped Doublet for its latest partnership, and the product is without a doubt unexpected. After over a year of staying at home due to coronavirus restrictions, we’ve gotten used to putting comfort above style, and this collaboration features slippers that you can wear both inside the house as well as on the streets. The upper takes on the design of a sheep head, featuring fleece and suede paneling in both black and white/grey colorways – both complete with eyes and ears. The slip-on silhouette is also equipped with a thick rubber sole, making the shoes easier to wear. The playful Suicoke x Doublet collaboration launches on July 17 online at Suicoke’s website, as well as at select Doublet..

Men’s Couture Is a Wave, Not a Gimmick

“Demna Gvasalia Is Preparing Us To Care About Couture” was an an article I wrote back in December discussing Balenciaga’s decision to re-enter fashion’s most rarefied arena. You could argue that, like nearly all headlines, the statement had a bit too much mustard on it — there are plenty of guys who enjoy couture week as a spectacle and have done for a long time. Yet it feels like there is a discernible buzz about this edition in particular, not solely attributable to the Demna-effect, but because of how it speaks to the zeitgeist where a new generation of menswear obsessives are concerned. Outside of Balenciaga’s gender-inclusive show, we also saw men’s couture by Kim Jones at Fendi, Pierpaolo Piccioli at Valentino, and Giambattista Valli (Jones and Piccioli’s had already dipped their toe into the menswear pool in January). Chitose Abe at Jean Paul-Gaultier and Kerby-Jean Raymond’s Pyer Moss might not have had any menswear in their collections, but both have cultivated fervent enough..
