Outfit Grid: APC x Norse Projects x Grenson x Folk

For this outfit grid we have taken on a very casual but stylish look, featuring such brands as APC, Norse Projects, Grenson and Folk. With a relaxed outfit in mind we’ve picked something to keep you comfy on a night out or if you’re just going out! Let’s take a closer look at the pieces that we’ve picked.

Starting us off is this APC Sweatshirt in anthracite, created as part of APC’s 30th anniversary throwback collection, HIVER 87. This piece is a classic crew neck sweatshirt with a deep grey colour and APC branding across the chest in a soft velvet. Made from 100% cotton it’s perfect for keeping you warm and comfortable no matter the weather.

To go under that APC sweatshirt we’ve gone with this APC Denim shirt. This classic button down is a staple piece for your year-round wardrobe. With patch pocket on the chest and denim colourway giving you a more casual look, while that button down collar is perfect to layer underneath the sweatshirt we picked.

Norse Projects are providing the pants for this outfit and their ultra comfortable Aros Light Twill – Lichen Green chinos. Created from 100% lightweight cotton twill, these lichen green chino’s are perfect for a casual outfit, featuring rear and side pockets, this classic look is good for all seasons. These chino’s are regular fit to give you extra comfort so you can stay looking cool and casual.

The perfect trainer for the casual look, we have picked the Grenson sneaker 1 in ash grey. A luxurious pair of trainers for casual wear from the home of ‘The Good Shoe’, Grenson. These suede low top’s are inspired by a 70’s tennis shoe, with suede upper sat upon a fresh white Italian rubber sole, with a thin lace fastening, and the classic logo ‘The Good Shoe’ embossed to the heel.

Now to finish the outfit, we have trusted the team over at Folk Clothing to provide these Melange socks. Spun from a high quality blended cotton, they are wonderfully soft to keep you comfortable but they’ll also keep you warm. Featuring a trendy melange pattern throughout, this is a necessity for anyone interested in keeping their sock drawer up-to-date.

Best Seller: Why You Love the Napapijri Rainforest Jacket

Napapijri Rainforest Jacket

Napapijri has been a world-renowned outerwear designer since 1990 when the first Skidoo jacket was introduced. The brand holds Nordic exploration and adventure at the core of its success, with the word Napapijri being a variation of the Finnish word for ‘Arctic Circle’ and the half positive, half negative logo representing the North and South poles. The Norwegian flag is also used as a representation of this, due to Norway being Europe’s northern-most country and also the birthplace of many 20th Century explorers.

At Aphrodite, we are proud to stock a number of Napapijri’s iconic pieces, and season after season they continue to be one of our best-selling brands.

One sure fire winner from the brand is the Napapijri Rainforest Jacket. This classic windbreaker is constructed with innovative technical fabrics to ensure it has a fit comparable to no other. Instantly recognisable by the branded kangaroo pocket, the Rainforest Jacket is available in several styles and colourways to suit the unpredictable British weather.

Napapijri Rainforest Jacket

For Autumn/Winter 17, Napapijri have revamped the Rainforest Jacket to suit harsher weather conditions. The Rainforest Winter 1 Jacket is fully lined with a soft fleece material, making the already wind-proof design even warmer. The lining extends into the adjustable hood, which has a high neck collar with zip down closure. The side seam features a zip closure vent to allow for extra breathability. Available in 4 colourways, it is a timeless addition to any winter wardrobe.

Stone Island Soft Shell Jacket – Online and In Store

Last week we brought you two of our favourite Stone Island jackets from this season – the Stone Island Garment Dyed Micro Yarn Jacket and the Stone Island Bomber Jacket. Our final selection for this season of Stone Island is the more classic shaped Stone Island Soft Shell Jacket in Khaki.

Constructed from a two-layer performance material, the Stone Island Soft Shell Jacket is breathable, windproof and waterproof due to its jersey-look outer layer, which has been specially conditioned to be flexible and comfortable. The jacket is also quilted with a PrimaLoft® insulation layer. This expertly designed layer is crafted from a blend of super-thin fibres that create a higher insulating capacity than a lot of padding, due to the millions of air pockets contained within it. The construction of PrimaLoft® insulation means that the jacket maintains it’s optimum warmth while remaining lightweight.

Stone Island Soft Shell Jacket

The overall look of the Stone Island Soft Shell Jacket is a contemporary take on a classic outerwear piece. Featuring an integrated hood with zipping and button-down closure for extra protection from the elements, the jacket also has slightly elasticated cuffs to fit closely around the wrist, and a drawstring waistband so the wearer can adjust how the jacket fits. The design also has some contemporary elements that are typical of Stone Island. The full-length zip is asymmetric, at a contrasting angle to a partially concealed zip pocket. The jacket also has two concealed zip down handwarmer pockets to the seams of its side panels. These panels can also be found to the sleeves, with overlock stitching visible on the outer of the jacket.

Stone Island Jacket Garment Dyed Micro Yarn – Available Now

Stone Island

Italian label Stone Island is known around the world for its use of innovative fabrics and techniques when creating their high quality pieces. Here at Aphrodite we are proud to stock a large range of Stone Island jackets, ranging from their classic coats and jackets to their more urban Stone Island Shadow Projects label.

Stone Island are particularly effective when it comes to designing coats and jackets, due to the range of fabrics they have developed to optimise the features of their pieces. Carlo Rivetti, Creative Director for the company claims that rather than being a fashion house, Stone Island is in fact “an on-going investigation on the ennobling and processing of fibres and textiles”. The Garment Dyed Micro Yarn Down Jacket is no exception to this theory, being both visually appealing and highly functional at the same time.

Stone Island Jacket Micro Dyed

Constructed from military specification polyester nylon, the Micro Yarn fabric that makes up this jacket is tightly woven in order to ensure that the Stone Island jacket remains completely wind resistant. As well as being wind and water resistant, the fabric is incredibly soft to the touch and can be machine washed. The premium duck down fill is injected into specially designed feather pockets that allow the coat to maintain it’s lightweight quality while keeping you warm. The jacket is then dyed with a special anti-drop dye, giving it it’s water-resistant finish. Featuring a full zip fastening, zip down side entry pockets and drawstring hood. The jacket is given a designer touch with the signature Stone Island button badge to the arm.

Styled with our Edwin jeans, a versatile everyday essential, the ED 80 are made from an exclusive Japanese Selvage and cut in a modern fit with a slightly tapered leg. The detailed stitching provides a slim line finish to the lower half.

To balance the darker tones, pair the ED 80’s with a simple subtle striped t-shirt from Norse Projects, with the Porter Yoshida & Co Tanker 2 Way Helmet bag adding an element of practicality. Lastly, no outfit is complete without footwear, in keeping with the casual theme the Adidas x Raf Simons Stan Smith’s lend themselves to almost any style. The clean cut aesthetic and tonal white on white make these sneakers ideal for bringing your outfit into focus.



Jason Markk Quick Wipes

Founded in 2007, Jason Markk revolutionised the sneakerhead culture with the introduction of a dedicated shoe cleaner that didn’t use harsh chemicals that could harm their precious sneakers. An instant hit, Jason Markk has gone from strength to strength, refining their formula to ensure that it meets the demands of sneakerheads who want their shoes to be clean at all times.

More recently, Jason Markk have introduced the Quick Wipes – a quick and easy way to clean shoes on the go. The dual sided wipe has been created to maximise cleaning potential and is handily packaged in small and manageable packets.

The video below outlines the Jason Markk Quick Wipes:

As you can see, the Jason Markk Quick Wipes are the first in the market to have two sides – one for getting the surface dirt out and the other for more hard to reach dirt. The durable, heavyweight nature of the wipe allows the cleaner to really get stuck into their shoes to get them looking new again.

A logical and successful step in the ever successful history of Jason Markk’s cleaning products, the Quick Wipe is now available in packs of three and thirty.
