#Off White

cantgooutinthat – Virgil Abloh

Founded by American wonder kid Virgil Abloh, since 2013 has been working on his own brand that started off by the name Pyrex and now is called Off-white. Shirts and hoodies with diagonal stripes on the back and yellow industry belts, sound familiar? 

Off White has evolved from a fresh but overstuffed fashion concept to a streamlined collection that hovers in the sweet spot between the street and the runway. At the moment Off White is one of the hottest brands out there. There are also a lot of artists that are wearing it to, then we are speaking about people like Beyoncé, Drake, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Travis Scott, Kanye West, Asap Rocky and Justin Bieber. Also a lot of basketball players are loving off white at the moment, “Lebron James, Swaggy P, Carmelo Anthony” and a lot of other players.

A few months ago in November Abloh released ten pair of shoes and called them the Big 10. In the fashion world everyone was talking about it and everyone wanted the shoes. Abloh is just that guy! Everything that he creates turns into something popular.

So if you want to look good, you love streetwear, and you are not afraid to spend a little bit of money for a new shirt or hoodie, we would recommend you Off White.

#A-COLD-WALL

Founded by the London-based designer Samuel Ross in 2015, A-COLD-WALL is the curated product of British street culture. It is both a staunch symbol and mercurial component of the clashing of class and environment in the British landscape. Born of the stark subversive brilliance of the underclass, ACW* is expressed and refined by the cerebral sensibilities of the upper sections of society. 

The Drop Date – A-COLD-WALL Airforce

A-COLD-WALL is not very easy to find because there first drop was very low-key and there second line was released only in Asia. After the first line was sold out people started to grow interest for it because artist like Asap Rocky and Tinieh Tempah started to wear it. At that time, it was all sold out and hard to come by because the second line you could only buy in Asia. But no worries!! there third line is coming and not only to Asia!

The New York Times

#Vetements

When you are talking about fashion that is hyped, you are going to be talking about Vetements. The most people you will see wearing it will also be quite wealthy because for a basic shirt you already pay 400 euro. That’s why you don’t see people wearing it everywhere every day.

Why you often see famous people wearing this brand is because the most celebs want to be wearing stuff that other people do not have, because Vetements is almost unplayable that is why you see it come back more in that world.

Also Vetements has been worn by a lot of NBA Superstars. Then we are talking about Westbrook, DeMarcus Cousins, Devin Booker, Nick Young, Carmelo Anthony, Iman Shumpert, Shabazz Muhammed and more.

#Yohji Yamamoto

For all the sporty people out there, Y-3 is the brand we have for you. the designers name is called Yohji Yamamoto, that is where the Y comes from, the 3 comes from the three stripes of Adidas as it is a collaboration with the designer and Adidas. A lot of the items of Y-3 are black because Yohji thinks that athletes must be serious. You should not be thinking of which colors you are wearing; you should be focusing on the sport you are doing. So a lot of professional athletes have been seen wearing Y-3.

Football legends like Zinedine Zidane and David beckham.

Y-3 got a huge boost when artist and fashion icon Kanye west started wearing it. It is rumored that one of the reasons that Kanye left Nike was that he was allowed to work together with Yohji Yamamoto at Adidas. Furthermore, along the runway, Lupe Fiasco, Jaden Smith, Miguel, Justin Bieber, P Diddy have been seen wearing Y-3 clothing as well . Asap Rocky (fashion icon) has been spotted at a lot of shows and wears a lot of clothing from the brand.

Of course we can’t let out the basketball players that wear the best clothing. NBA players like Brooke Lopez, John Wall, Iman Shumpert and more. Swaggy P has been seen wearing Y-3 quite a few times.
