We’re almost into Spring, and H&M have released some really nice pieces of clothing, if you’re looking to give your wardrobe a bit of a Spring refresh, or add something new to your look. There’s plenty of items available, from jackets to jeans, tops and everything in between, and I have picked out a few of my favourite items which I think are fashionable and might check out myself.

Adicolor From Adidas Originals

Monday, 15th January, 2018

Adidas Originals Releases Adicolor

Adidas Originals is all about the heritage of the sports and lifestyle brand, and they are coming back with some pretty iconic pieces in the coming weeks with it’s Adicolor collection.

The three statement colours for the menswear are red, blue and green, all synonymous with Adidas, with most of the styling being debuted in the 70’s. But there’s one item which has me quite excited; The return of those “popper” track bottoms! I know that Adidas Originals brought back these last year, and called them Adibreak, but the styling was slightly different to the original design we used to wear back in the 90’s. The teaser image Adidas is using (pictured above) has the same iconic tracksuit bottoms as back in the day, the navy blue bottoms with large white side and three navy stripes with an Adidas logo down next to the hem. These are currently not listed on Adidas’s website, but hopefully they will be added soon.

There’s a few pieces online from the Adicolor collection which will be available to buy from 11PM 17th January 2018, these include trefoil T-shirts, track jackets and bottoms along with pairs of Campus trainers which are already available. There’s a ladies line too, which also includes the colours sky blue and yellow, with a statement piece being a raglan dress in collegiate green and white.

You can expect to pay around £63 for a jacket, £55 for track pants, £55 for a hoodie and £23 for a tee. All will be available in Adidas stores and online at Adidas here from 11PM Wednesday 18th January 2018.

Wednesday, 8th November, 2017

MR P. Debut Collection From MR Porter

Several weeks back I heard about something new brewing at MR. Porter, it was a new collection not only being sold by the luxury online retailer, but also designed by them. This is MR P., and it officially launched online yesterday.

You probably don’t need me to tell you about MR. Porter; Which is one of the homes to rare, sought after, expensive or luxury clothing labels in menswear, where you can find everything from Balenciaga to Vetements to Acne Studios, as well as street wear premium labels such as Common Projects, Adidas Originals and Scandi style from brands like No Nationality. The campaign said that it would be a range of clothes that they have themselves always wanted, stylish and understated, affordable but made to the highest standard. Here’s my picks from the 50+ capsule collection.

Adidas Release Spain World Cup 2018 Kits

Tuesday, 7th November, 2017

Spain home shirt for 2018 world cup

It’s almost World Cup time! 😀

Early yesterday morning Adidas released the new kits for next year’s World Cup including the official unveiling of the Spain shirt. Most of the other kits from Adidas were also announced, including Germany, Argentina, Sweden, Russia and more. The kits have gone all 90’s, with inspiration taken from various retro kits from the 90’s and incorporated into the new kits for the World Cup next year.

The Spain kit is a take on the 1994 World Cup which was in the USA. That has always been a shirt which I have liked, it was not a lucky shirt, as Spain lost in the quarter finals to Italy, who cheated when Mauro Tassotti elbowed him in the box which would have resulted in a penalty had it been seen, breaking Luis Enrique’s nose in the process.

The Spain top is the traditional red, with a take on the yellow and blue diamond pattern on the right hand side of the shirt. The badge is on the right, and is a tonal colour scheme as the several previous shirts have been, utilising the red and yellow colours.

Spain home goalkeeper shirt for Russia 2018

The home goalkeeper shirt has also been released, and my first impressions of this is that it’s horrible. It seems to be this green-blue colour with an ugly pattern to the front. It could be the worst Spain goalkeeper shirt which has been designed for a while. This is trimmed with black, with the badge using a tonal black colour too. I have seen the Germany goalkeeper shirt which has the same pattern but uses much nicer blues, this looks a lot better. The away goalkeeper shirt is still to come, so hopefully that will be better.

Spain away training shirts for 2018

Along with the home shirt and home goalkeeper shirt, some training shirts and kit has also been released, including a polo shirt, a few T-shirts, tracksuits and bottoms.

One set of training wear is dark grey in colour, and comes with a red trip with the Spain badge using a gold colour. The other comes in a two tone blue colour, again this looks nice and has the same red trim with gold Spain badge and star once again.

Spain 2018 training shirts

The away kits have not been released yet and should follow shortly keeping in line with the same previous release schedule. The RRP of the home shirt is £70 with the Authentic Jersey coming in at £99.95, both available at Adidas right now, with other sports shops set to get stock next week.


prince + pete: Sayonara Single Sock Syndrome

Thursday, 2nd November, 2017

Pete + Prince Socks

As you’ll know from reading my blog over the past year or so, I’ve got a new found love for socks. Socks have always been an essential item, but recently they’ve taken on a whole new persona for themselves. No longer are they that boring item which you don’t really care about but buy out of necessity, but a stylish item of it’s own to team up with the rest of your outfit. I have got on board with the sock trend, and have quite a few pairs from different brands, but there’s a new brand which is doing something I’ve not seen before, that’s prince + pete.

Something we all have to deal with is that missing sock. Where do they go? I don’t really understand how I can lose a sock from the washing basket to the washing machine for it to never be seen again. I do have a couple of single socks which I do actually keep, in the hope that I’ll find the other which makes up the pair.

prince + pete have developed colour collections which have coordinating designs, and are sold in singles, yes, you can buy just one sock. The idea is that all the socks from each colour collection can be paired up, giving more fashionable choices and allowing collections to be built up, one sock at a time.

“Men are limited in the ways they can express a sense of style. So, I wanted to create a sock brand that makes it easy for the average guy to be fashionable, with great designs that are well-made and easily coordinated,” said Donna Pappalardo, Founder of prince + pete.

There’s two ways which you can purchase the socks; A monthly subscription service called S-Club which you can join and get three socks delivered to your door per month, a matching pair and a single complimentary sock. This costs $36/month with free delivery, with an option to cancel the service at any time. You can also get a starter pack of 9 socks, this includes 4 pairs and 1 complimentary sock to get you going, which comes in at $96.

Prince + Pete Sock Collection

The socks are made from a super soft bamboo, with an arch support, extra cushioned bottom, smooth seamless toe and are a perfect crew length. The collections which are currently available are Bleeker, Hudson, Ludlow, Melrose, Mercer and Worth.

I think that this is a really good unique idea, with some great sock colours and patterns available. You can see more from prince + pete at their site here, and check out the video below which gives you all the information you need in less than a minute.

H&M Edition Autumn 2017 Collection

H&M have released their edition line for Autumn 2017, and they have some great pieces for this season. Whether you’re looking to refresh your current wardrobe or you need to start a brand new Autumn line up for a new look, there’s plenty on offer. You’ll probably know H&M for it’s basics line with cheap and inexpensive clothing, but they do have premium offerings, and their latest line is called Edition, which made an appearance last season too.

I have found some really nice looking pieces from the collection, these classic pieces are higher quality than the main H&M line, and are perfect when you want to create an outfit. The good thing about the basics is you can select a few pieces and make up a large number of different outfits, with neutral colour palettes and staple wears it’s easy to style these.

Want to see the best picks from the collection? Check them out below.
