Carhartt WIP SS 2014 Look Book

The end of the year is my favourite time of year because I get to peruse my favourite brand's look books for the upcoming and sunny seasons. This upcoming season from Carhartt looks set to be a bright and colourful one as well! Lots of new colours of camouflage in there, polka dots and new twists on chore jackets, which is what we like to see!

Beyoncé, you are the only one for me.

I don't normally post about music on this blog, but as this album is just unbelievable, I thought why not.

I downloaded Beyoncé's new album as soon as I heard she's dropped a secret album and I was buzzing with excitement. She is undoubtedly one of my favourite artists that I have listened to my whole life. From dancing in my room to "Crazy In Love" when I was 13 to this visual album that I can appreciate artistically at 21. However, I have still danced around my room to track 11, "Flawless".
That's exactly what this album is. Flawless. Only an artist like her could release a secret album at midnight and everyone go nuts over it and smash record sales, with no publicity or marketing. It just goes to show that she is a person who needs no introduction, as her music does not either.

She just released the full videos for some of the songs on the album, including "Drunk In Love" featuring Jay-Z, which is basically a song about how much she loves getting it on with him. Fair play to her. She also just dropped the video for "XO", probably one of my favourite songs on the album. Amazing.

Here are those two videos below, they are visually stunning and she looks amazing as ever. She is amazing. Obviously, I am in love with everything she does but I'll let you make your own minds up (I know you'll all love it though)!

Carharrt WIP X Uniform Experiment's Latest Collab

So, I got an email this morning about the new collaboration from Carharrt and Uniform Experiment. Many capsule collections have been created by these two brands in the past and they never seem to disappoint.

The products encapsulate Carharrt's classic silhouettes with a twist from UE, whether it be different fabrics, colour or their logo discreetly placed somewhere on the item. The latest collection also sees this with classic items such as canvas tote bags, hoodies, marled t-shirts and beanies. One thing that stands out for me is the 'Sid Easy Pant', which see the long loved silhouette of the Sid Pant taking on a whole new form with an elasticated waistband and jogger like material. Optimising comfort and still looking like the classic.

"Rainy Days" Stussy x NEXUSVII Holiday Collection 2013

Stussy have teamed up with Japanese brand NEXUSVII to create this capsule collection, consisting of two parts. The first part of the collection includes t-shirts and the amazing The North Face Nupste booties. The second part consists of Gore-Tex fishtail parkers, quilted varsity jackets, flannel shirts, 5 panel caps, beanies, cosy jumpers and sweatshirts.

I thought I'd do a post on the second part as it's a bit more relevant to this cold, blustery and rainy time of year. My favourite pick out of the second part of the collection is the purple fishtail parka, bringing a splash of colour to those drab winter days.

Everything is available to buy on the Stussy Japan web store.
