With its aim of creating “modern tailoring for modern people,” Marshall Artist returns with another stellar collection for Fall/Winter 2014, including a standout range of seasonal outerwear. As in seasons past, the UK brand’s new jackets stay wearable and distinctly British, but with the addition of updated cuts and performance-oriented fabrics. Case in point are styles like the Thermal Insulated Jacket, Melton wool fabric Thermal Wool Jacket and the weather-resistant Lined Wind Cheater Jacket, all of which will keep one warm and dry, and were tailor-made for the inclement months ahead. Rounding out the highlights, meanwhile, is the Vintage Harrington Jacket, a design that puts a contemporary spin on the classic British style. Look for Marshall Artist’s Fall/Winter 2014 jackets — along with the rest of its seasonal releases — now at the HYPEBEAST Store.
Over the course of 2014, Pharrell has been a supporter of Hillary Clinton and the possibility of her presidential run. He’s also been an endorser of the adidas Stan Smith. The two worlds collide the day before the collaborative “Solids” Pack launches on a new Stan Smith custom. Using the royal pair from the upcoming pack as a canvas, this custom reads “Hillary Clinton Go to Ferguson” when reading the shoes from right to left. Flowery detailing plays to peace on this pair, sporting the same painted strokes as previous Skateboard P worn customs. Check out shots from Hypebeast of this presumed 1 of 1 and let us know your take on it in the comment section.
ASICS has entered into a collaboration with American specialty boutique Commonwealth to produce a special edition of the Gel Lyte V silhouette called ‘The Gemini.’ Named after the constellation representing the celestial twins, the shoes seem identical at first glance, but upon closer inspection we can see that there is premium full-grain leather on one shoe, while there is nubuck suede on the other, and vice versa. The aim of this design thus encourages people to “be creative and celebrate individuality.” Bundled with a Commonwealth ‘Gemini’ bandana upon purchase, these shoes are available exclusively at the Commonwealth boutiques in Virginia Beach, VA and Washington, DC, as well as its online store.
Earlier this week, we received a look at the first official collaboration between Pharrell Williams and adidas Originals. The Pharrell Williams x adidas Stan Smith “Solids” Pack introduced three tonal takes on the tennis silo Skateboard P has favored over the course of the year, also offering three matching leather adidas track jackets.
While the “Solids” Pack is set to release this Saturday, adidas Originals has announced that three more collaborative packs with Pharrell will launch before the end of 2014. Though products and themes are yet to be announced, look for more Pharrell x adidas collaborations to release this October, November and December.

For two days, Material Designer/Developer Suzette Henry, owner of MLAB, gave the class a crash course on the world of materials both natural and synthetic.

Working in tandem with our CMD (color/material designer) is crucial to a successful cohesive product line in order to tell a deeper story to the consumer.
