CHRØNICLES ØF NEVER - AW14


Last week I had the opportunity to preview Gareth Moody's AW14 collection. The Autumn Winter collection featured degrade rust and coal tones. Whilst this degrade was a strong point in the collection I felt I had seen it before as the degrade feature was a trend in AW12 collections such as Silent Damir Doma. 


Chronicles of Never has gone through a lull in recent collections however this collection sparks a possible resurgence as one of Australia's most popular men's labels. The collection once again introduced footwear and jewelry after a few seasons of simply producing clothing. The jewelry was true to Chronicles of Never's aesthetic using oxidised silver and featuring latches and fine chain locks on bracelets, rings and necklaces.



Other highlights included the oversized coats with curved hems layered with leather vests and grey marle lounge pants and jumpers(pictured above). The ivory toned pants and basic tees also were strong points of the collection and looked amazing paired together. Chronicles of Never's AW14 Collection will be arriving in stores March/April 2014. The label is stocked in Scrapstore Northbridge, Father Claremont and For Tomorrow online.

RICK OWENS X ADIDAS


I am not usually fussed with designer shoe collaborations however Rick Owens' latest collaboration is the exception. Recent collaborations including Margiela X Converse and Raf Simons X Adidas have been lacking design, quality and  have simply become a street style hype. Rick Owens X Adidas have however combined both Rick's aesthetic and Adidas' wear-ability.

The collaboration is available in a number of different colour ways and fabrics including nylon and leather styles. I decided with an all black leather style with white laces. These sneakers will be arriving with Rick Owens' Spring 2014 collection and will be available at Rick Owens stores.




Above are images taken from Rick Owens recent Paris showing for Spring 2014. The presentation and atmosphere of the collection will be one spoken about for years to come. Rick Owens took inspiration from American college culture through using stepping teams instead of regular models. It was also surprising to see how well his pieces suited regular women's body shapes instead of the coat hangers we have become accustomed to viewing at fashion weeks globally. The stepping team members from Washington Divas, Soul Steppers, The Momentums and The Zetas really knew how to work these sneakers. (Images courtesy of Style.Com/)

MARCELO BURLON - COUNTY OF MILAN

Stylist, creative director, film maker, photographer and now t-shirt designer, Marcelo Burlon has released his Fall Winter 2013-14 collection. Burlon's minimal kaleidoscopic prints draw inspiration from cultures around the world through the use of symbolic elements such as feathers, horns, eagles and snakes. The symbols to me represent elements of American Indian tribal culture. The prints have been compared to Givenchy tees however there is something more sophisticated and timeless about Marcelo's prints. 

I went with the t-shirt above but it was so hard to chose out of the many beautiful prints he has produced this season. The t-shirt line is available at Zekka Shenton Park or online on Antonioli or End.
