Continuing with his series of insightful videos into unique fashion designs and obscure trends, Todd Selby has released a series of films with subjects taken from his third book Fashionable Selby. While the hardback tome profiles 42 individuals, this video series focuses on four characters who push the envelope in fashion with their bold dispositions and DIY approach to design.
First up is Yoshikazu Yamagata, a Japanese artist who retraces steps in art by “learning to draw as a child,” a style that correlates with his cut and sew work for his Writtenafterwards label. Next up, Antwep Royal Academy of Fine Arts graduate Yuima Nakazato takes us to a tree house built by his father and speaks on how his upbringing around nature influences his modern designs. Meeting another nature enthusiast, The Selby speaks with natural dye wizard Audrey Louis Reyolds who explores colors from plants and algae in creating interesting gradients via her own organic dye techniques. Lastly, we meet Yujiro Komatsu of Blackmeans Leather, a store located in Tokyo that stocks vintage leather jackets and punk accessories. Komoatsu and his cohort of modern cowboys live off punk’s DIY spirit, adding bold statement accents to second-hand wardrobe staples.

The brand in Beaverton travels down an angular avenue with the new Nike Free Orbit II SP. After a black and white pair was spotted yesterday, a “Cool Grey” makeup is seen today in detail. Neutralizing the studded silhouette as much as possible, a solid grey upper is paired with a speckled white outsole. The ride is imported from the Free 5.0, slitted to keep up with the angular design of the body. A medial zipper adds another element, simplifying the slip-on set. Get a detailed look at the futuristic design below, and grab either the black or grey colorway April 24th at Foot Patrol.
