Swoosh Street Style: Nike Hooded Fleece

Fusing The Great Outdoors With Urban Spirit

Suddenly realised its nearing the end of 2019 and you’re yet to tick off one of your New Years resolutions? Perhaps one of them was to encourage yourself to step out of your comfort zone? If that’s indeed the case, then lucky you because we’ve just found ourselves in possession of the perfect piece to see you into daring territory. Unapologetically bold, this Nike Hooded Fleece arrives brimming with explosive hues and ‘70s design cues.

Exactly what you need to enliven an autumnal rotation that’s seemingly become mundane, this new-season Swoosh style comes bundled in neon pigments of orange, peach, coral and purple which are then executed with cosy Sherpa fleece and nylon overlays.

Though immensely soft and comforting to the outer, this Nike Hooded Fleece strikes the perfect temperature balance internally thanks to its breathable mesh body. This type of stark fabric contrast on each side is intentional and ensures the design can cultivate the ideal warm-to-cool ratio amidst the unpredictable British weather, which let’s face it, we all love to hate.

Elsewhere, the silhouette’s high-octane aesthetic is bolstered by distinctive Nike branding at the chest and royal-blue trims at its pocket and cuffs. Additional details include a contemporary ½ zip closure and capacious hood with Sherpa fleece lining.

In what appears as a true ‘streetwear meets the great outdoors’ kinda set up, this Nike Hooded Fleece sends a bold, winterized message to the standard feel of ‘70s climbing gear. And though it’s certainly not reserved for the faint-hearted, we encourage you to take a leap of faith with this one, you won’t regret it.

Patagonia AW19

Patagonia AW19 Latest Arrivals

Garments With Purpose From Patagonia

If you weren’t already aware, American outdoors brand Patagonia is, in many ways, a forerunner of several developments welcomed by the fashion industry in recent years. Not familiar? Let us get you acquainted…

Take the label’s bid for a sustainable future as a starting point; little to no brands had even considered the impact of fashion on the planet before Patagonia led the way with its introduction of recycled fabrics. Or, cast your mind back to the inception of the brand’s ‘Worn Wear’ initiative – a repair service designed to make your gear last the ages. Whatever the case for review, there’s no doubting that Patagonia is doing its bit to honour founder, Yvon Chouinard’s, lifelong proposal for functional, repairable and durable apparel for everyone.

So, with that said, let’s see how this season’s Patagonia AW19 collection lives up to all the above, beginning with the label’s trusty layering pieces.

It goes without saying that with the onset of colder months ahead, your wardrobe can never have too many layers and perhaps the perfect piece to start with is a hoodie. Simple in structure and cosy in construction, a hoodie is pretty much an indispensable item all year round, especially when it comes baring Patagonia’s credentials to the chest. The brand’s P6 Logo hoodie, in particular, is a great silhouette for everyday; as expected, it’s responsibly crafted from recycled materials and boasts a warming fleece lining to the inner.

Patagonia Silent Down Shirt Jacket

With the necessities of warmth and comfort covered by the brand’s hoodie, adding a sharp shirting style into the mix then successfully elevates the look for everyday pursuits. Here we’ve placed Patagonia’s Fjord flannel shirt and Silent Down shirt jacket atop the hoodie, thus injecting varied tones into the lineup, while doubling up on layers and structuring the ensemble on top. Not to mention the shirt jacket is padded with 100% recycled down.

Patagonia Logo Hoodie

Next, a slew of autumnal colour cues finds their way into the Patagonia AW19 collection. With Patagonia’s signature Fitz Roy Scope tee in black acting as a breathable base layer beneath, the brand’s more neutral-toned garments can take centre stage in the following look. Both clad in earthy pigments, the brand’s Retro Pile Gilet comes imagined above a Patagonia Fjord Flannel shirt yet again – this time in stripes of ‘bristle brown’, beige and grey. The great thing about these two designs is their ability to do the job – functionality-wise – while looking equally on point for the city streets.

Patagonia GiletPatagonia Retro Pile Gilet

Wrapping things up, this last look debuts as perhaps the most practical all of them all, though each puts up a pretty tough fight for the prize. Each garment in this lineup zips down to reveal yet another branded garment beneath it, until it finally reaches a 1973 infused Fitz Roy, organic cotton tee in light blue. In addition, Patagonia’s Isthmus Parka serves out ‘60s expedition vibes to the outer, bolstered by a wind-resistant ‘mojave khaki’ shell and teamed alongside another iteration of the label’s Retro Pile Gilet in navy.

Patagonia Isthmus JacketPatagonia Parka Beige

All in all, if you’re one of these people that drifts in-between the city life for those well-deserved breaks in the great outdoors, make sure to hit up the Patagonia latest arrivals for all your long-lasting, adventure clobber this season. You won’t leave disappointed, we assure you.

Nike Trainers: Style The Swoosh Right

How To Wear Nike Trainers

In today’s fashion zeitgeist it’s near impossible to imagine a world without Nike trainers. But, in the bygone days of the ‘60s and ‘70s, before the Swoosh locked down sartorial status, the footwear industry wasn’t quite sure what it was missing without the sporting stalwart’s sneakers.

Jump 40-something years and Nike trainers have reached the pinnacle of footwear culture in 2019. Having etched their presence into society and sportswear alike, the brand’s kicks, ranging from the nostalgic Cortez, to the Waffle Racer ‘Moon Shoe’ and the ever-popular Air Max dynasty, are true style icons.

Therefore, mastering your Swoosh style is essential if you’re hoping to keep up appearances in the sneaker scene. So why not source inspiration from our styling team and take a look at how we’ve approached this season’s Nike Trainers below…

LOOK 1: 

Ideal for city dwellers – our first look bets on a relaxed wardrobe for urban settings. With the help of trailblazing label CP Company and all-American brand Ralph Lauren in the mix, this outfit takes on an effortless smart-casual stance. Boasting a double dosage of technical layers on top, including a short-sleeved CP Company polo shirt and CP Company arm lens jacket, the outfit further unfolds with comforting Ralph Lauren sweatpants.

Completing the look is a pair of Nike Air Max Light trainers; offering colourful pops to an otherwise monochrome teaming. Since these sneakers have been seldom-seen since the ‘80s, give them the attention they deserve through the streets.How to wear Nike trainers - Look 1

LOOK 2: 

If you’re more focused on turning up the dial for nostalgia, look two is a winner. Featuring Nike’s Air Zoom Alpha trainers, *cult classics from the ‘90s*, the outfit channels an elevated approach to dressing. It’s imagined with several layers stacked atop each other, including a Nudie sweatshirt, Albam shirt and cosy Folk sweatshirt. Although warmth shouldn’t pose a problem with this look, choose to add or remove layers depending on the temperature. Meanwhile, embrace this Zoom sneaker’s wavy uppers and retro status in your chosen stomping ground.

LOOK 3: 

Cast with a colour palette made up of only two tones, this black and white ensemble is undoubtedly a head-turner. Bringing urban accents into focus, the look aims to secure the streetwear scene with a range of logo-charged accessories. With Dsquared2’s ICON bag by your side, not only can all your essentials be kept close, but your status heightened thanks to the brand’s signature slogan. Adding to the clashing vision is a Ralph Lauren baseball cap, boxy Maison Margiela t-shirt and Champion sweatshorts.

Finished off with the power and stability of Nike’s Vapormax 2019 trainer on foot; we’re sound in the knowledge that this look will confidently pursue the city or summer festivals in equal measure.

LOOK 4:

Slick, smart and suitable for weekend wear – outfit four is fiercely trend aware. Taking to terrain with the energy of a springy Air Sole unit, Nike’s Air Tailwind 79 sneaker hits the floor with the Swoosh sported at all angles. Up top, a lightweight Paul Smith shirt and neutral Albam overshirt drape the body, teamed alongside versatile Norse Projects chinos. Signing off the sophisticated streetwear look is Moncler’s Theo pouch in olive, styled here across the body.

LOOK 5:

Wholly inspired by the game, this next look captures traditions from the hardwood and prepares to hit the tramac. Using an unusual approach to layering, the outfit invites a striking Nike jersey atop a cosy Ralph Lauren hoodie. Nike’s Air Force 1 ‘07 low trainers serve timeless appeal on foot, while the sporty styling is broken up with beige Norse Projects chinos. We reckon this one will give off duty dressing a whole new meaning.

LOOK 6:

Showcasing the sporty flair of the ‘90s, this final outfit looks to apparel icons of the past. Pounding the streets with nostalgia on foot, Nike’s Air Max 98 trainers inject old-school quality to the ensemble while Ralph Lauren’s half zip sweatshirt serves up a cosy layer for easy throwing on. Edwin’s ED55 63 jeans soften the athleisure theme with their clean-cut feel and turned-up cuffs.

Sunglasses With Style & Substance:
Let’s face it, if you’re staying on home-turf, unpredictable weather is almost a given. So, come rain or shine, it’s best to be prepared for whatever the forecast could throw your way. If we’re wishful thinking, balmy climates would reign supreme, and with that in mind, sunglasses are a total must-have. With the obvious benefits of muting the sun’s harsh glares, the right pair of shades will instantly sign off any look.

For the sole purpose of a long weekend away, versatility is key. Choosing a simple, slick pair that will go with everything is imperative.

The North Face

Peaks to Pavements – The North Face

It’s fair to say fashion has taken a swerve that no one could have anticipated over the past few years, with even the highest of high-end focusing solely on that of the streetwear trend. We explore a brand whos organic identity had them placed rightfully in the rankings of this megatrend from the offset, by documenting them in their new stomping ground.

Stone Island ‘Industrial Strength’

In keeping with the industrial strength direction of their FW18 collection ‘Icon Imagery’, this unlikely pairing of navy and yellow pieces are almost uniform-like, and we like it a lot! From its inception, Navy has been synonymous with uniform, from marine blue to its adoption as navy blue the colour has itself included in military wear to workwear, finding itself as the go-to base colouring of high vis uniforms.

Instantly the combo colouring of the knit jumper evokes the utilitarian designs of the working uniform, emboldening the compass chest piece to aid a more physically striking aesthetic. With the modular nature of Stone Island, It’s not hard to bring two monochromatic base outfits into one singular colour blocked design with the mix of base and outer layers displayed.

Famed for their unique fabrication and garment dye process, the Lamy nylon featured here in the olive flock jacket and below in navy flock shell, is bonded to an adhesive film using a magnetic field technique. They aren’t messing around when it comes to waterproofing, and why not look as stylish as possible whilst doing so.

The ‘Tiger Pack’ with stand out all over white tiger print is perfect for layering with more subdued colourways like this overshirt in Ice. The tiger design is a continuation of last season’s camo collection. Here’s what we said:

 Unadopted from an existing camouflage (unlike the designs of the Polish alligator camo) the White Tiger collection doesn’t function to conceal the wearer as it does to display Stone Island’s incredible garment printing ability. The swirling black on white camo with gold-flecked detailing takes on existing proportions of the tiger stripe camo that has been adopted across many a different nation. Symbolising an incoming drop of snowy proportions, the tiger camo is an ironically surefire way to stand out from the crowd with its beastly design.

Sports Luxe Inspo At Aphrodite1994

Have you ever wanted to dress your best whilst remaining as comfortable as possible? Welcome to the world of sports luxe, reserved for rich and affluent amongst it, as well as characters in the Sopranos. We’re showing you three of our favourite sporting looks.

Look 1 – 

The emphasis is on a marina chic vibe, looking your best whilst stop off or on the yacht is essential for anyone who can even say they have the chance of stepping out to the ocean.

Doubling up on the Moncler and adding a double dash of Italian craftsmanship in Paul & Shark and Stone Island that deals this look a classy touch.

Look 2 –

Channelling a fashion look with a laid-back feel. It’s a distinctive 90s visual to the colour blocking on display.

The major statement in this outfit is the relaxed fit to the Oliver Spencer pinstripe trouser, lending a smart and tailored air to a comfortable and elasticated design. Finalising the outfit is the combo of adidas

Look 3 –

Adopting a contemporary casual look that draws on inspiration from the 80s up to the modern day. Relying on classic British tailoring, whilst also bringing some European imports into the mix.

The key item in this look is the brand new adidas Sobakov, a silhouette influenced by the terrace movement of the 80s and football aesthetics of the late 90s.

 

Earn Your Stripes: Summer Stripes Edition

Spending its early life on the torsos of sailors, criminals, clowns and other despicable characters, the striped garment has enjoyed it’s latter years as the classy fashion choice. With its versatility we felt it essential to offer the best in stripes from the Aphrodite1994 range.

Vertical Shirts

Although thought to be exclusive to your wolves of wall street, the vertical stripe to a crisp shirt adds a perfect patterned layer to any outfit. Wear it like you would a regular oxford or chambray offering as an overshirt in the warm or layering in the cold.

As simple as it comes, the tailoring on offer from Japan’s favourite minimalist brand is unparalleled, justifying the high-quality price tag. With its point collar, single-needle tailoring and a patch pocket to the chest, this usually formal styling takes on another life as an essential wardrobe wearer for finest of casual combinations.
One of our wardrobe essentials, the Striped Ralph Lauren Oxford is such a staple in Polo archive and so intrinsically Ralph Lauren that other striped iterations of the oxford shirt might, in fact, be mistaken for it. 100% cotton construction woven in a thin slimming stripe, this shirt has been cut in a slim fit for a more tailored look that guarantees a versatility not seen by many, making it perfect for dressing down and up.
 
Having covered its blue brother in our recent ‘Kind of Blue’ feature, it would just be flat out rude to not acknowledge the pretty in pink sequel. Styled as a box fit Hawaiian shirt, the striped garment includes a choice of button up or casual collar all developed in a holiday-ready linen fabrication.
Hooped Polos

A sporting classic, any champion of the athleisure wear is sure to provide their spin on the hooped polo. With a look that screams either Wu-Tang or Tiger Woods depending on your preference, there’s a serious amount of versatility in the style.

Part of a double bill of Paul & Shark polos (think of this as the Godfather 1 to our up and coming Godfather 2 in a world where the Godfather 3 doesn’t exist) this variant of everyone’s favourite yachting outfitters is a sure fire way to be noticed by its standout colouring and fine quality crafting. Smashing 3 nautical colours into one with its navy, light blue and orange colour combo, it’s a surprisingly easy dress down option for jeans, slacks or a fitted trouser.
 
You can rely on only a number of things in life: death, taxes and Ralph Lauren Polos. The American outfitters will forever be associated with the colourful world of polos, finding a foot in 90s streetwear with their varied design. With it’s red and white design, this polo is a simple and slim staple shirt.
 

Paul & Shark Polo Shirt – Grey / White / Peach

You didn’t have to wait long for the big reveal, and can you say you’re satisfied with the offering? It’s a unanimous yes from the Aphrodite team, and we’re sure it is from you too. Tempting the simple white and grey base with a pale pastel pink is a stroke of colour blocking genius from the Italian team and offers a colour variation to their rather simplistic variations.
Pinstripe Pants

You haven’t seen this kind of pant style since prison wear, and it isn’t as juvenile as once before!

In a league of their own as our singular striped pant option, the Armitage trouser from Oliver Spencer is a relaxed fitting, formal looking, pinstripe weave that you didn’t know you wanted, and we guarantee you’ll need after inspection. We live in a world where formal wear is now comfortable, so get with the craze and strut to the corner shop in style.
Basic Bretons

The industry standard, the iPhone of the garment world, the universally recognised sign of a mature fashion icon, the striped t-shirt says it all with only a small palette to work from, but boy does it work!

As it goes with Scandinavian minimalism, there’s only a select number of patterns accepted into its new age architect lookbook. It’s a good job that monochrome stripes are one of the foundations of the movement, as there are very few better dress down fashion styles. Norse Projects, your friends from the utmost north of Europe, are champions of the striped garment, adding tiny embellishments to each model. The Niels Tee takes on a sketched line work display in its stripes for a unique look.
What’s better than a single stripe pattern? Double stripes! Also, not a stranger to a striped garment (as displayed above) are Oliver Spencer. Their Conduit t-shirt is the gateway to a finer casual style offering a simple base in this outing, placing navy and grey as the two-tone offering.
No messing around from Folk and their classic stripe offering. This dictionary definition offering of the striped style needs no sell, it’s a solid piece of kit for your wardrobe!
Multicolour Bretons

Lifes too short to be boring, so lighten up a bit and add some colour to your striped wardrobe.

It’s simple, it’s striped, it’s yellow. Dubbed as ‘beeswax’ in its subtle colouring; the soft shading to the typically bright colour welcomes a foundational pairing option for a plethora of outfit editions. Treat yourself to this extroverted colouring for the warmer months.
Take the previous caption and place ‘Vintage’ in there and you’ve got yourself a rivalling quality garment
Dominating your stripe spectrum are the specialists at Oliver Spencer, and they’re bringing a pocket to the stripey t-shirt design. The sky blue design and contrasting collar are a brilliant addition to a timeless design.
