PUMA Court Star ‘Clean Pack’

October 22nd, 2014

The highlight of the brand’s tennis line, the PUMA Court Star has a rich history having adorned the feet of Wimbledon’s youngest ever champion, Boris Becker, as he clinched victory at the All England Club.

Almost 30 years on from that triumph, PUMA have taken the classic silhouette and given the Court Star a 21st century make-over with a minimalist yet luxurious reworking.

Dubbed the ‘Clean Pack’, the trainer has been served up with smooth premium nubuck leather uppers with tonal lace set and contrast heel panel and tongue label. Most notably the iconic formstripe that adorns PUMA footwear releases has been eschewed giving the trainer fresh, contemporary feel.

The Court Star has been finished with a traditional white branded sole unit and gold foil blocked speedcat branding to the heel tab.

Release Information
Name: PUMA Court Star ‘Clean Pack’
Colour: Off White & Black / Black & Off White
Launch Date: 25th October 2014

Nike Air Flight Lite ‘White Men Can’t Jump’

October 21st, 2014

Following on from the inspired Air Force Command drop last weekend, Nike have unveiled their next White Men Can’t Jump informed release; the Air Flight Lite.

Designed in 1991, the Air Flight Lite was made famous by Scottie Pippen during the Chicago Bulls’ first championship season as well as being a member of the 1992 Dream Team.

As the Air Force Command was named after Billy Hoyle, this latest iteration takes inspiration from Wesley Snipes’ character, Sidney Dean, and his outlandish outfit in the iconic 1991 film. Constructed from premium white leather, the high top is decked out with typically 90′s accent colours such as peach, neon yellow, purple and metallic silver, all of which borrow from Dean’s of-the-time ensemble.

The Nike Air Flight Lite ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ are now online.

C.C. Filson by Nigel Cabourn

October 20th, 2014

Representing the merging of two kindred spirits, the C.C. Filson AW14 collection was designed in partnership with END. stalwart and renowned outerwear aficionado Nigel Cabourn.

Inspired in part by a vintage Filson Cruiser Jacket Cabourn picked up in a thrift shop in Japan, the collection borrows the name of Filson’s founding father and looks to create clothing that pays homage to their celebrated history whilst incorporating contemporary functionality.

Utilising an incredibly hard wearing selection of fabrics, from 16oz paraffin waxed cotton to 18oz Seattle wool, combined with Filson’s seasoned manufacturing expertise, this is a collection of outerwear designed to last and last and last.

A man with a unqiue insight into the world of outerwear, whether it be from his 40 plus years in the industry, his personal archive of over 4000 vintage pieces or even his location right here in the cold, wet and windy North East of England, Nigel Cabourn has brought his incredible knowledge to the table throughout every aspect of the design.

Thanks to this, yoke’s are reinforced with extra tough reinforcing layers, overcoats are kitted out with utilitarian pocket set ups and archive inspired brass military clasps are deployed alongside military grade melamine buttons in order to keep everything in place across an incredible collection of weather defeating outerwear.

Available online now head over the Filson section to explore the C.C. Filson by Nigel Cabourn collection now.

adidas Originals x Barbour Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection

October 20th, 2014

Leading heritage and lifestyle brand Barbour has collaborated with sportswear giant adidas Originals on a limited edition of highly covetable clothing and footwear. The collection offers a wide choice of design, look and feel combining sportswear with functionality.

Taking three themes, each story features jackets and trainers or boots designed to be worn together or stand alone. The stories reflect the heritage of both brands from Barbour’s country and military influences to sportswear, the heartland of adidas Originals.

Country
Barbour has always been synonymous with the British countryside. Celebrating this heritage, Barbour gives the iconic Beaufort wax jacket a contemporary makeover. The Adiwick jacket in a robust 8oz beeswax, retains the classic Barbour Beaufort features of large bellows pockets, studded detachable hood and rear zipped pocket. What makes this jacket unique is the extra detailing of added leather trims to the hem, pocket and hood for an up to the minute look. To complement the jacket, the adidas classic outdoor shoes TS Runners – Barbour are especially redesigned featuring a waxed cotton tongue and beautifully aged tan upper leather.

Spectator
The Spectator story celebrates the long association adidas has had with sport. Sports often played and enjoyed on Barbour’s territory of country fields, grassy green pitches and rainy British parks. Spectator combines retro footwear spotted on the field with protective outerwear worn on the side lines to create two jackets and trainers that perfectly merge both brands DNA. The Johbar jacket takes the iconic features of a classic Barbour wax jacket, the large ring pull zip, spacious bellows pockets, hand warmer pockets, studded rear vents and corduroy collar and combines these into an exclusive wax cotton jacket in navy with contrasting sleeves and leather binding at pockets and cuffs. The ZX555 – Barbour shoes designed to be worn with the Johbar.

The red quilted showerproof Roubarb jacket offers an alternative lighter weight choice. Inspired by the colours of the track and the famous ‘Beckenbauer’ track top, the Roubarb is a shorter version of Barbour’s traditional quilt. Details include track top lycra cuffs and hems and waterproof zips to front jetted pockets. The CLMBA – Barbour shoes in chilli red incorporate the Barbour Beacon logo on the peg ends and add a clever use of Ecotex tongue material.

Military
The Military story is inspired by a customised jacket that Barbour created for a captain in the British army at the time of the Falklands War in the 1980s. The Baradi jacket is multi-pocketed, full of detail and has a printed camo lining made up of sections of the accompanying GSG9 – Barbour boot. The soft black nappa leather combined with Barbour waxed fabric makes these boots the natural partner to the Baradi jacket.

Taking inspiration from both our archives and working with the adidas Consortium team, we have been able to create jackets and footwear that combine the tradition and heritage of both brands into modern limited edition pieces that will become highly covetable classics.”

Daniel Bauer, Director adidas Originals Statement said “The collaboration with Barbour is a truly inspiring and exciting partnership. Both brands share a rich heritage, long history and dedication to deliver premium products which was driving both teams through the creation process. We are privileged being able to work with Barbour and are proud of the collection.”
