PORTER x adidas Five-Two 3 Nizza

porter adidas five two 3 nizza 1 PORTER x adidas Five Two 3 Nizza

Japan’s PORTER brand is synonymous with great luggage, named after the diligent characters who handle more bags and cases than anyone else, and their orange-lined TANKER series has been part of the collection since 1983. PORTER’s take on the Nizza Hi uses a similar black padded nylon and orange lining to bring out the very best in the Nizza’s simple paneling. A zipper feature down the shoe’s heel takes the baggage theme one step beyond any standard collaboration, encapsulating the look perfectly while serving a utilitarian purpose in ease-of-wear. The vulcanized sole carries black foxing, completed with a gum outsole, and tonal 3-Stripes and the easily recognizable branding for both companies is highlighted on the tongue, acting as the stamp of authenticity on this perfect representation of PORTER’s bestselling blend of functionality, premium quality and the cutting edge, packaged in, what else? A special zip pocketed tote bag.

XLarge x adidas Five-Two 3 Superstar

xlarge adidas five two 3 superstar 1 XLarge x adidas Five Two 3 Superstar

Groundbreaking on it’s 1991 opening, LA’s X-Large store helped define streetwear as we know it with a mix of utilitarian basics and the cutting edge. Blending generation X lifestyle with a living large theme in both mind state and denim fit, the brand and the Superstar’s timeless, fat-lace friendly curves have been allied since day one, and designed with X-Large’s bold FW09 season in mind. Alternating between lime green, purple, pink and blue snakeskin effect leathers, broken up by black suede 3-Stripes, complete with white X-LARGE lettering, while a matching suede tongue and heeltab display both brand’s logos. The white rubber shell keeps things striking, while a branded sockliner and no less that six sets of colored laces emblazoned with the slogan, “Getting no respect since ‘91″ keeps things appropriately versatile.

About XLarge
It all began in November 1991. The very first XLarge store opened on Vermont Ave where a scene had already been developing around the store location. It was a combination of skateboarding, hip-hop, art and whatever was happening in the area at the time. As the ethos and direction of the brand continued to evolve, the store began to present a unique style and perspective – a representation of utilitarian-wear as fashion as opposed to everyday wear. Blending the aforementioned skateboarding, hip-hop, and art culture, XLarge have created an original fashion style out of the mix. Still going strong after 18 years, XLarge remains an innovator and pioneer in streetwear.

maharishi x adidas Five-Two 3 Stan Smith

maharishi adidas five two 3 stan smith 1 maharishi x adidas Five Two 3 Stan Smith

In line with maharishi’s strong ‘decommissioned’ army influences, drawing attention to the beauty of camo patterns and clothing design and negating the military associations, the light blue canvas upper of this Stan Smith makeup draws inspiration from a less obvious piece of regulation apparel – naval chambray shirting circa WWII. Contrasting white stitching continues the theme, while a red top eyelet, metal eyelets reinforcing the trademark ‘3-Stripes’ of perforation make for subtle but effective detailing. The brand’s signature dragon motif is embroidered on the tongue, with a maharishi logo applied on the heel and a special ‘XV mahadidas’ sockliner to complete a unique meeting-of-minds.

About maharishi
Since its birth in 1994, maharishi has evolved into one of the UK’s most influential designer labels, offering distinctive men’s, women’s and children’s collections available from a range of exclusive fashion retailers globally. Founded by Creative Director, Hardy Blechman, maharishi carries a strong ethos of respect for nature while utilising the latest technology. Blechman, whose former experience lay in the international military and industrial clothing surplus trade, started maharishi by producing hemp and other natural fibre clothing as well as recycling work-wear and military surplus. maharishi prides itself on not conforming to mainstream fashion trends, placing emphasis on its own points of inspiration and the natural progression of excellent quality, perfect fit and original design.

Always championing renegade style, fresh design and independent music, 55DSL – led by Creative Director Andrea Rosso — has recruited Italian artist Turbokrapfen and Italian DJ-duo The Bloody Beetroots to christen the opening of the Hong Kong FIFTY FIVE DSL TemporART STORE on July 24, 2009. Located at Shop 3A, 2-4 Kingston Street, in Hong Kong’s bustling youth-shopping hub of Causeway Bay, the 55DSL TemporART Store follows a “pop-up” concept where a unique space is renovated and reinvigorated as a “temporary” retail/art destination. Turbokrapfen will fly into town from Bassano del Grappa (hometown of 55DSL) to specially redecorate the store in his graphic typographic style. The young up-and-coming artist is best known for his explosive, colorful, hand-crafted illustrative artwork as well as his close collaborative work with The Bloody Beetroots.

The FIFTY FIVE DSL TemporART STORE will be open for 2 months only, until end-September 2009. At retail level, it will showcase the latest 55DSL Autumn/Winter 2009 men’s and women’s fashion and accessories collections. A special limited-edition, “55DSL x The Bloody Beetroots x Turbokrapfen” nylon windbreaker and Hong Kong-only released t-shirt will also be available to commemorate the Hong Kong 55DSL TemporART Store. To launch the 55DSL TemporART Store in Hong Kong with a huge bang, lively electro-punk-rock specialists The Bloody Beetroots will host a DJ set/club party at Volar on the evening of July 24.
