No matter how exciting your weekend was, Monday morning always seems to impart the same feeling, and many find solace in the ritual of getting dressed and going to work. Celebrating this sense of consistency, which is a key attribute for those working in a rapid fire world, New York-based imprint WINWEL showcases its new collection: “Monday Morning.” The collection draws on a familiar formal staple, blocking various prints of 100% cotton Italian shirting fabric throughout the bodies of four styles. This range of custom headwear marks the last headwear-only drop as WINWEL’s transitions into full apparel later this year. Made in New York, check out the hats above and head here to pick up one from this limited batch.
Undoubtedly the university of choice had LeBron James attended college following his reign at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, the Ohio State University Buckeyes continue to be a driving creative force in terms of new coloways for his signature line. The latest to see the red and silver coloring worn by Thad Matta and the now D’Angelo Russell-less Buckeyes is the Nike LeBron Solider 9.
Dressed in University Red and Metallic Silver tones, it’s more than likely we’ll see the Buckeyes lace up in this new LeBron signature come next season as the Buckeyes look to impose their will on the Big 10 conference and beyond. Give the Nike LeBron Solider 9 “OSU” a look below and keep your eyes peeled to Nice Kicks for US release details.

For next year’s spring/summer season, British fashion designer Nigel Cabourn has released a curated selection of looks that explore his affinity with military-inspired outerwear and functional vintage reintroductions. The collection takes the form of dated western silhouettes while referencing the workwear of coal miners and their more affluent counterparts from years gone by. The color palette has been limited and features little more than 5 predominant colors including shades of indigo navy, military green, seasonal off-white and beige with styled combinations hinting at the casual wear of early Navy Seal cadets. Most pieces are loosely tailored and introduce the use of functional pocketing and patchwork fabric overlays to solidify their references and direction. Most importantly, 30% of the collection has been constructed in collaboration with original 1920s Liverpudlian workwear manufacturer Lybro, whom of which also supplied the props used throughout. More information is soon to made available directly at Nigel Cabourn’s official website.
Over the last few years, the Maison Martin Margiela Future high-top model has been a constant staple in our Celebrity Sneaker Stalker features, as the made-in-Italy strapped up sneaker can be spotted in several of its full color leather or metallic colorways on a weekly basis.
Of course, that was the model that Kanye West began wearing throughout his Yeezus Tour since the fall of 2013, while he was in contract limbo between his Nike and adidas deals. (But some old guy doesn’t think Ye is influential, so that’s probably not worth mentioning.)
Now that the high-top variation has become a franchise silhouette for the brand, MMM recently released a low-top complement in a handful of colorways. While the sizable strap is no more, the trademark open flapped eyestay remains, keeping a similar look and feel.
They’re available now over in 5 colorways on SSENSE.com for a cool $ 795 and up.
Hennessy V.S cognac continues its collaborative legacy with the release of a limited edition bottle designed by artist Ryan McGinness. The label is a vibrant reimagining of the original and is one that captures the dualist aesthetic of both the brand and work produced by McGinness. The label said to be based on the artists ”Black Holes” series of work. Each bottle is individually numbered and can be purchased via Reserve Bar for $ 42 USD.

A big week for Drake is looking to be an even bigger weekend. Quieting commenters with “Charged Up” and dismissing dissers with “Back To Back,” Drizzy reclaimed Big Homie status in the rap game, and even garnered a release date for his first official shoe launch, the “OVO” Air Jordan 10.
While fans will have to wait until September to cop said sneakers, there’s already another Drake co-signed Air Jordan on the scene. This evening at the OVO Bounce Basketball Tournament, Drizzy debuted the “OVO” Air Jordan 8. Word of these kicks came up earlier this week, but a Twitter video from @AtotheBed proves the first official look.
At first glance, these 8s sport an all-black upper hosting nubuck underlays and leather strapping — an uncanny combo for the 8s. Gold accenting on the heel is assumed to be an owl, with tongue detailing undisclosed by this footage.
The wait for the “OVO” 10s to release at retail has been long, but could an Air Jordan 8 “OVO” drop be in the near future? This holiday season will see a major AJ8 push with the return of the “Aqua” and “Chrome” colorways, as well as the introduction to the “Three Time’s a Charm” pair.
Peep a glimpse at Drizzy’s AJ8s in the video below and let us know which Jordans you’d like to see get the OVO treatment.
