A.P.C. x Louis W. FW16 Inspired By French Riot

A.P.C. x Louis W. FW16

 

Under the creative direction of designer Louis Wong, the quintessential Parisian brand A.P.C. has unveiled a new FW16 capsule collection that draws inspiration from the May 1968 French riots, a demonstration against capitalism by students and workers across the country. The line, appropriately named Soixante Huit (or Sixty Eight), is dominated by a workwear aesthetic featuring shearlings and vintage jackets that capture the time period of youthful and rebellious protesters. An off-white jumpsuit acts as the blank canvas for many of the collection’s striking outerwear pieces, which include classic bombardiers, aviators, bombers and parkas in a retro color palette with knitwear also added into the mix. Check out the styles in the gallery above or go ahead and purchase them here.

adidas NMD “Multicolor Splash” Customs Are DIY Favorites


Visit the original post to see all 3 images from this gallery.

While much of the world has their eyes on Pharrell’s “Human Race” NMD dropping on Saturday — and rightfully so — Wujekrada Customs presents easily one of the sickest NMD deliveries to date.

The custom creation boasts a white upper with a matching BOOST sole unit, as the body has been livened up by a vibrant paint splatter effect. Aptly dubbed the “Multicolor Splash,” the NMDs then note black Three Stripes branding alongside, matching the sole plugs and laces accordingly. Finally, the accustomed adidas logo on the tongue has been replaced with additional paint splatter.

Again, these are a one-off custom from Wujekrada, but if adidas were to release something similar, would you cop?
