DISCOVER JANUARY 2018’S COOLEST STUFF
THE MOST STYLISH PRODUCTS AND RELEASES THIS MONTH
How are we nearing the end of January already? Apparently most of us have broken our New Year's resolutions by now, but I have good faith in our readers; especially after putting out a poll on Twitter and seeing that 57% of you are still going strong. Anyway, the world continues and 2018 has brought some interesting wares our way. I’ve searched for the coolest releases of January and I hope you like what I’ve found this month. There’s rare Supreme gear up for grabs, a collaboration between two British footwear giants and a scientific grooming brand with neat packaging. So, following on from our December round-up, I’ve compiled a list of my favourite products and releases for the month of January 2018 – enjoy.
Woolrich Open Milan Flagship Store
The new Woolrich flagship store was designed by Japanese studio Wonderwall under the guidance of Masamichi Katayama, and spans 700 square meters. The store’s interactive concept comprises a lounge area, a dedicated space for customisation, a green area curated by Green Fingers and an Extreme Weather Experience Room, all of which offer an innovative and fully engaging in-store experience.
Gosha Rubchinskiy x Burberry
Gosha Rubchinskiy has unveiled a second creative collaboration with Burberry as part of his AW18 runway show at Yekaterinburg’s Yeltsin Center Museum. Created in collaboration with the Russian designer, the 13-piece collection celebrates Burberry’s outerwear icons and the check with the introduction this season of scarves and shoes. New outerwear styles include a reconstructed cotton-gabardine trench coat, which combines trench and car coat design details, as well as oversized wool-blend duffle coats, in addition to oversized check flannel shirts and bucket hats.
Wilson's Vaults (Supreme) x The Idle Man
The Idle Man have teamed up with DJ Ross Wilson who has one of the biggest and earliest collections of Supreme to date. Wilson’s Vaults is a private and unique collection of directly Supreme store bought pieces from when the store first opened in New York back in the 90s up until 00s and various other Supreme stores in Japan and London. The Idle Man will be the exclusive online selling platform for this vast collection, special pieces which includes the skate deck collab with Damian Hirst, North Face collaboration, friends and family exclusives and much more will all be available to all buy. Over 1000 products have all been valued by a professional valuer and will be available to view and purchase online from the 1st Feb should you register online at The Idle Man.
Grenson x New Balance
Athletics brand New Balance and traditional British bench-made shoe makers Grenson come together for phase two of their collaboration. After the phenomenal launch of the "One Shoe, Two Factories” collaboration between Grenson and New Balance two years ago, here comes Phase 2. This time a new colourway of the original Men’s 576 sneaker has been created in a mix of classic Grenson Full Grain, Italian calf leathers, including a burnished tan, dark brown and Burnt Oak suede. The real innovation this time around is that the two companies have, for the first time, made a Goodyear Welted version of the 576 crafted entirely in the Grenson factory in Northamptonshire.
Overland Jacket from Tekkima
It's difficult to pick the right outerwear when the weather is unpredictable. It might be crisp and cold in the morning and then warm in the afternoon. The perfect jacket choice for those uncertain days just got a lot easier with the insulated, waterproof Overland jacket from Tekkima. At home on the city streets or wooded trails, the it has a waterproof shell with a lightweight insulation. It features two exterior pockets and two interior pockets that are perfect for stashing tech. With an adjustable stowaway hood, you're ready for whatever the weather throws at you.
Deciem launches NIOD at Mr Porter
True learning is a form of love — it’s humble. It respects that to look forward, it must look backward. The few observers of NIOD's childhood know that it isn't a brand; It's a force and it has a soul. While NIOD's genetics are committed to science, its soul is ultimately rooted in learning. Perhaps the only flaw of modern science is that it grows proud and loses respect for our deserving past — but learning stays humble and looks back. This science-focused brand will be launching at Mr Porter, January 26th.
Ralph Lauren Zip Hoodie
Sleek and sporty thanks to its smooth double-knit fabric, this full-zip hoodie from Ralph Lauren is great for the gym, kicking back on the weekend or teaming with a long coat for an on-trend smart casual look. Available in navy or white it features a drawstring hood, full-zip front with a signature zipper pull, long sleeves with ribbed cuffs and split kangaroo pocket.
