Fresh off a solid Fall/Winter 2015 drop, The North Face’s Japanese PURPLE LABEL imprint returns with a lengthy look at its upcoming offerings for Spring 2016. Whereas last season’s collection went all-in on warm woolens and heavyweight military-inspired outerwear, the latest range injects some colors and patterns alike as bright red hoodies and shorts are joined by paisley-covered chambrays and khaki-colored seersucker. COOLMAX construction — perfect for the transitional weather — figures prominently throughout, hitting everything from lightweight outerwear and sweats to button-downs and sweats alike. Finishing touches include splashes of camo and camp stripes, not to mention bucket caps and nylon pouches.
This spring’s THE NORTH FACE PURPLE LABEL collection will soon be available online and at nanamica locations across Japan.

Apple has kept mum all through 2015 over rumors about it building an electric vehicle. But in a recent interview, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that the iPhone maker is serious about getting into the car business. Speaking with the BBC’s Rory Cellan-Jones, Musk said: I think companies like Apple will probably make an electric car.

Kanye West Will Lower Prices for Yeezy Season 3

While Kanye West has always insisted on his intention to make his Yeezy fashion line accessible to everybody, the economic reality is that the luxury price points of the Season 1 collection have so far deterred even his most ardent fans from buying some pieces. However, it seems that West will be sticking to his promise that "eventually everybody who wants to get Yeezys will get Yeezys," as when pressed by a TMZ cameraman at LAX airport today, he replied with confidence that Yeezy Season 3 will be offered at lower prices. At the same time, when asked if he would rejoin Nike if offered a billion dollars, Kanye stays firm in his commitment to adidas, calling them his "family." However, exactly how much cheaper his future fashion releases will be, we will have to wait and see, but this will undoubtedly be good news to his legions of supporters in the world. As of now, West looks like he will be carrying the enormous momentum he built up in 2015 over into the new year, with a host of new releases scheduled for the next 12 months.

maharishi Explores Religious Orders for Its 2016 Fall/Winter Collection

maharishi has debuted its 2016 fall/winter collection at LC:M, a range dubbed "Post-Geographic Devotional Uniform & Habits: Part II." As an extension of Part I, which drew inspiration from the garments of various religious sects around the world, the new offering continues along the same vein by continuing an exploration of subcultures such as military platoons, gangs, crews and tribes. maharishi has always been informed by spiritual devotion in its previous collections, consistently representing a range of dualities such as east meets west, and nature meets technology. Paying especial attention to the devotional and ritualistic conventions of brotherhoods this time around, the label takes aesthetic cues from uniforms, moral codes, and sets of beliefs amongst members.
To complement this season’s motif, the designs bring insignia and branding front and center. Incorporated into seam structures are rocker banners and badges, purposely left blank in order to evoke a sense of ambiguity for the wearer. For this series, the brand also introduces a new core color titled ‘Lama,’ a hue inspired by the habits of Tibetan Buddhist monks. Constructed from Japanese technical fabrics and infused with the clean cuts of Japanese tailoring, maharishi’s latest range is a cohesive selection of garb that coincides with the label’s pacifist approach to military design.
