THE PERFORMANCE JACKET

East London based label Swash London has teamed up with Puma for an eclectic collection packed with detailed prints. The apparel range takes inspiration from the Swash print archives alongside vintage sports and military wear, transferred to classic and reinvented Puma items.

Inspired by a 50s-era military parka from the SWASH archive, the PUMA X SWASH performance jacket matches one of their bold, animal-packed patterns with the best of PUMA’s technical innovation – fully covered seams, an elongated body with a detachable gilet, waterproof zippers, adjustable sleeve cuffs, a hidden drawcord, zip pockets, and PUMA x SWASH branding.

The PUMA X SWASH London collection is available at PUMA Select stores. Follow PUMA here.

A TRUE CLASSIC

Sexy yet casual, clean yet complex and as distinctive as the label on the bottle – Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme remains a viable option for any man looking for a cologne with the paradoxical ability to be both relaxed and sophisticated which stems from an intriguing blend of fresh and masculine scents like bergamot, lavender, sandalwood, and tobacco.

From this intricate layering of contrasting aromas, Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme comes across as a casual fragrance that still conveys the sexiness of the D&G brand.

Launched in 1994 this particular fragrance has stood the test of time. And it shows no signs of stopping!

  • The Ben Sherman SS 15 Collection will be available in Sandton City, Rosebank Mall, Menlyn Park Shopping Centre and at the V&A Waterfront.

BACK TO BASICS

The Ben Sherman SS15 Collection sees the British paying homage to their heritage and returning to the place where it all began – the iconic Brighton Pier. The Brighton area holds a great deal of significance to the brand as it was here where Ben Sherman was born and also the location of the first ever factory for Ben Sherman.

As always, the Button Up concept remains a key signature with the brand throughout the years – a deliberate choice that exudes ‘Britishness’

PILLOW TALK


If tenacious stink is an issue for you, try an antibacterial soap–body odor can be a product of bacterial growth on the skin. And skip the Indian buffet at lunch–odors from onions, garlic, curry, and spicy foods are excreted in sweat glands. Finally, do the laundry. Bacteria from sweat can cling to fabrics; the heat from your body acts like a plug-in scented warmer, but in this case it activates offending odors.

THIS IS THE DIESEL AW15 CAMPAIGN

The new Diesel AW15 campaign titled ‘Decoded’ is a no-nonsense, straightforward, genuine and transparent campaign. The campaign combines real and raw images with direct and obvious headlines – but of course – in the coolest way possible.

Shot by Richard Burbridge, styled by Nicola Formichetti, and featuring some of the coolest kids around like pro skater Ben Nordberg, this is not your run-of-the-mill campaign that aims to entice with encrypted messages. We approve!

THE BLAZE OF GLORY

SWASH brings their signature aesthetic to one of Puma’s most popular silhouettes. The London based brand employed a series of detailed prints to bump up the visual impact of the PUMA Blaze Of Glory kicks.

The 90’s retro runner gets dressed up in eccentric and cutting-edge drawings featuring different animals. The shoes are built with premium synthetic leather on the toe cap and ankle collar, while minor hints of colour accents cover the Blaze of Glory’s liner. SWASH branding is seen on the insole and it features a SWASH London lace lock.

CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STAR II

Originally known for its star role on the court to its current cult status as the go to sneaker, this piece of iconography just got a redesign. The new model, Chuck Taylor All Star II, is like a stealthy luxury version of American classic featuring a complete redesigned inner – Nike’s Lunarlon foam impact-absorbing technology, a perforated padded tongue, and micro-suede lining.

Going beyond performance and comfort, exterior changes include premium canvas, color-matching shoelaces and eyelets, and replacing the vinyl patch with a fully embroidered All Star patch.

The new SS15 Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II sneaker makes its debut in October at select retailers, in the following colours: Black, White, Red and Blue.
