SOME OF OUR BEST PRODUCTS RELEASED THIS WEEK.
Brand emblems are an iconic part of streetwear, and this week’s releases from HBX
put logos up front and center. First up, Raf Simons
dropped a selection of luxe leather sneakers respectively featuring the Raf Simons
“R” and Moschino
branding prominently on the sides. Preppy menswear label Maison Kitsuné
also returned with its latest fall offerings, featuring the brand’s iconic fox motif rendered in usual whimsical fashion with a touch of Japanese influence. Save for the classical pieces from Represent Clothing
and Maiden Noir
, we’ve got some serious heavy hitters to rep your brand affiliations this week.
Summer is a season of white sneakers, and that in itself calls for frequent shoe cleaning. Save your precious kicks from harsh chemicals with this natural shoe cleaning solution from Mr. Black Garment Essentials. Plant-based, but no less potent, this shoe cleaner quickly dissolves grime and dirt, leaving your sneakers pristine.
Jeremy Scott’s Moschino is known for its bold, playful designs and motifs rooted in pop culture. This season, the designer brings his loud aesthetic to the leather low-top sneaker, showcasing the Moschino logo conspicuously on its sides - one way to show your Moschino love this summer.
UK-based Represent Clothing usually draws inspiration from British tailoring, but this season they looked towards their neighbor across the pond for pointers, designing a collection based on the natural topography of the Wild West. This bomber jacket is a luxurious take on the theme, crafted from buttery soft faux suede in an exaggerated silhouette.
Represent applies their impeccable tailoring to the laidback jogger, rendering the streetwear staple in a tapered fit. The military joggers are crafted with reverse military pockets and back pockets, making it a versatile and casual piece for everyday wear.
Designer Raf Simons, formerly of Dior and Jil Sander fame, has made a name for himself with his clean, minimal aesthetic. These high-top sneakers epitomize his design ethos, crafted with a white leather upper and featuring the most minimal branding - the letter “R” rendered in black leather appliqué.
During the summer, you need some serious statement frames to stand out from the crowd of regulation aviators and wayfarers. These sleek shades from SUPER BY RETROSUPERFUTURE are crafted entirely from Zeiss lens material, and held together by the most minimal of metal detailing.
We’ve been inundated with logo caps this summer, but this one from Maiden Noir stands out from the pack. The soft crown cap is crafted in a summery baby pink textile, but reads “Ass & Grass” on the side, making for an unexpectedly provocative accessory.
Gentlemen looking for lightweight but sophisticated outerwear this season should look to Maiden Noir, the Tokyo and Seattle-based brand that brings new life to preppy basics. This over coat is styled with a notch lapel and subtle check print, making for an elegant classic.
This season, Maison Kitsuné looked to its Japanese roots for inspiration, featuring wartime Japanese motifs from the rising sun to vintage fighter jets. This basic tee is adorned with an image of a fighter jet parked outside of a hangar, rendered in the brand’s signature bright and whimsical style.
Maison Kitsuné is known for being a go-to brand for whimsical but clean-cut staples. This hunter green lambswool sweater features Maison Kitsuné’s iconic fox motif in a larger-than-life scale - merging traditional and quirky sensibilities.
