Hype Means Nothing – Finger Glasses Tees

leave a comment »

New label Hype Means Nothing is making some noise with its very 1st round of tee shirts which feature various celebrities making glasses with their fingers.



The full concept behind the shirts can be read below, but each has a celebrity making glasses with their fingers and in the bottom right has a description of the “glasses” and their price. there is also their cockroach logo on the front chest and bottom of the back with some very interesting stitching in the rear as well. Each shirt comes in black, white, and grey.






While these are the only ones up for sale at the moment, the collection also includes Jay-Z, Obama, Brittany Spears, Lil Wayne, Charlie Chaplin, Travis Barker, Brad Pitt, Playmobil, and Will Smith.

The HYPE MEANS NOTHING concept:

“Populating now your wardrobes like insects invading houses, the cockroach branded label doesn’t have in mind to stop its invasion, even soon.

Hype Means Nothing and its first collection, a label in total opposition with its favourite playground since it uses “caricatures” to criticize all these people aiming at being actively involved in the Hype culture.

All these “wanna be”, “wanna look like”, wearing goggles to be hype….have now been made obsolete since the only thing needed now is a picture of an idol, wearing these so wanted goggles mimed with the hands, and wear it proudly.
This is the result that you get from a deep understanding of this trend among friends and contacts involved in the fashion business that these young designers decided to bring to life, as a first step, everybody’s wish from simple designs AND higher quality materials that could be worn anywhere, anytime, no matter what the style is.

So, it’s literally by focusing on these 2 key points that these 2 artists have decided to extend the panoplie and to develop other products. Your turn now … make a wish…!
(So … what are you dreaming of?)”

You can grab these HMN through colette.

BBC Stars in Space Jumpsuit & Canvas Sneakers

leave a comment »

BBC has definitely shown us time and time again that they are not one to shy away from trying something new. From tuxedos and bow ties to metallic gold backpacks and space helmet ski masks, it’s pretty hard to surprise us at this point.
Well just when you thought it was over, BBC has just released a fully stars in space covered jumpsuit.

Actually looks kinda cool but not sure how many of these bad boys will actually sell for the $875 price tag at BBC/ Icea Cream flagships.

These canvas sneakers are way more practical but just as outrageously priced at nearly $300 from Colette.

All Gone 2008 Has Arrived

leave a comment »

After a long day of classes and Chinese New Years celebration I need to get to bed, BUT here is a quick look at what I got in the mail today all the way from Colette in France.
It’s All Gone 2008!



Unfortunately haven’t been able to do much more than flip through it so far, but come this weekend I’ll have tons of pics from this 2008 year in review book by La MJC.

On a tangent, Colette is on top of their shipping game!! Took 3 days (including a Sunday) to get this door to door from Paris to New York.

Silly Thing ’09 – Crew Necks & Totes

leave a comment »

In what is surely just a small preview of what’s to come in 2009, here’s some crew neck sweatshirts and tote bags from Silly Thing.




Always with that vintage feel, Silly Thing stays fresh this season.
These pieces are available now at Silly Thing’s Think Silly store in Hong Kong and also on Colette in limited quantities.

Stay Silly

Raf Simmons ’09 Velcro Sneakers

leave a comment »

Acclaimed menswear designer Raf Simmons has just released a special pair of sneakers through Colette.



I’m going to go ahead and guess that straps and Velcro are officially in if Raf and Kris Van Assche are backing them this season.

Grab these right off of Colette or go the to Raf Simmons site to get the black on black color way of this shoe.

Kris Van Assche ’09 Sneaker

leave a comment »

You might remember the Kris Van Assche sneakers from last season, with the crazy laces. Well this season the laces were ditched completely and straps are put into play.



I’d say the Dior Homme designer has done it again, these look crazy.

Only in the one color way for the moment but grab them at Colette .
That is if you have it like that.
