Legend has it that Antwerp — the Belgian city known for its incredible architecture and design — was originally named after a soldier who marked his victory against a giant by cutting off its hand. Inspired by the city and this myth, retailer and label Opening Ceremony created a Fall/Winter 2014 collection around the central motif of hands, incorporating them over a wide variety of its stylish, forward-thinking garments. Standouts from the range include pieces like the Dimensional Fingerprint Front Zip Pullover Jacket — an all-over fingerprint pullover with a zipper detail that can be done up for a pleat in the front, or left unzipped for an oversized silhouette — the cotton fleece Zipper Gusset T-Shirt in orange, Wool Large Front Zip Pullover Jacket and Dimensional Fingerprint Classic OC Varsity Jacket. Rounding out the collection, meanwhile, are more classic, wearable designs like the logo-embroidered tees and hoodies, along with both casual and formal trousers.

Following up its “Reflective Silver” drop from earlier in the month, the Air Jordan 13 will continue its October takeover with the upcoming release of its “Barons” variation.

Slated to arrive at Jordan Brand retailers, including Sneaker Politics, October 25th, let us know if you’ll be picking these joints up in the comments below.

Based in Taipei, Drilling Lab specializes in accessories that reveal “one’s true self” — minimal, often industrial designs that are devoid of superfluous embellishments while remaining playful and aesthetically pleasing. The label’s “Clamp” collection, in particular, embodies this philosophy with a range of rings that explore the structure of a clamp. Made using traditional techniques in Taiwan, Type A is a stainless steel “clamp” ring with a two-piece design, embedded screw and hex key, while Type B is a similarly distinctive style featuring an exposed screw and hex key for sizing adjustments. Both rings can be easily assembled or dissembled, are easily adjustable and come in a range of finishes and colors, resulting in one-of-a-kind accessories for those seeking simple, yet playful jewelry.
