With Spring just around the corner the “rocker” image seems to continue to trend for this season. My picks for this upcoming season focus on functionality and versatility. Both looks are meant to work for every day wear and have a little bit of pop for your nights out. The first outfit features light colours with yellow accents to compliment, while the second outfit gives you that all black look with lots of zippers and a graphic tee inspired by that band merchandise aesthetic.
The DIY design aesthetic is taking the fashion world by storm this season. The trend first emerged in late 2016, rounding out the year with iconic looks like the Himumimdead custom script tee worn by A$ap Rocky during his Money Man short film. This aesthetic has inspired other major brands so far this season.
Raf Simmons is always kind of ahead of the curve, he dubbed the cast of Academy award winning Moonlight to be featured in Calvin Klein 2017 underwear campaign dubbed “Revelation”. Mahershala Ali, Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, and Trevante Rhodes wear the 2017 men’s undergarments in black and white. The campaign is shot by photographer Willy Vanderperre in Los Angeles.
If you’re looking for the highest quality in leather goods and sneakers this summer than look no further than Tokyo based brand Hender Scheme. Started by founder Ryo Kashiwazaki the brand represents masterful craftsmanship and quality. Hender Scheme has become well known for their homage line, which that reinterprets classic sneaker silhouettes with high quality leather materials in black and nude tones.
Japanese label visvim flexes their considerable design chops for their Spring/Summer 2017 collection, drawing inspiration from an eclectic combination of sources.

Featuring outerwear, denim, knitwear, and a variety of accessories, visvim’s tour-de-force continues in stride.
