It appears DJ Steve Aoki has branched out from music as he released an image for his upcoming collection under his music label, Dim Mak. Now several seasons deep, Dim Mak has looked to cement itself as a full-fledged lifestyle brand encompassing the arts, fashion, and of course music.. The line is currently available at select retailers including Paris’s colette.
For those who are not aware of the term, Dim Mak, is used in pressure point striking. Depending on the martial art practitioner, they can use it as a form of medical healing or a way to harm an opponent. Since this is my blog converging the aesthetics of martial arts and fashion, I felt this would be great to show this to my viewers. The video below demonstrates the various aspects of Dim Mak.
Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli’s challenge was to try and infuse couture into the traditions of menswear with their Valentino Fall 2012 Collection. Pitti Uomo in Florence was the stage for their offerings which was an extended celebration of sorts, as it was the 15th anniversary of Valentino staging his first fashion show in the very same city. I am kinda question the silhouette of the jackets; however, the fabric is excellant.
Here are some of the tops which will be for the next upcoming Burberry Prorsum collection. Traditionally they are known for their great outerwear and icon “Burberry Plaid”, but we will never know what creative director,Christopher Bailey, has up his sleeve. As always, Bailey doesn’t upset regards to fashion and especially FALL FASHION!! The garments in the photos exhibits geometric shapes attached on to the tops. Most of the time patterns as such are either knitted or printed, which gives a slight nod on the creativity tip. The question is would be it be worth it one to purchase such an item when it appears they can do it themselves. Just a thought, but nevertheless still a dope shirt. I can see Yeezy pull it off.
