Sep 19th 2014: Nike Air Max 90 QS 'Bleached Denim'

Making good use of the iconic Air Max 90 this weekend, Nike present the 'Bleached Denim' edition as part of this week's Quickstrike offering. To say we're pleased is an understatement as following on from the Camo iteration, 'Bleached Denim' was an atmos exclusive and restricted to Asia. Estimating the colourway's potential in the EU, Nike have wisely brought it over and retained much of the same exclusivity.

In terms of materials this edition is impressive. By using a unique bleached denim and teaming it with premium suede panels, Nike have not only made something visually impressive but something that's actually pretty hardwearing too. As usual, it's the visible air window and pioneering comfort that truly separates these from the rest.

Limited numbers of the Air Max 90 'Bleached Denim' will be available online at 00:01GMT 20th September.

Sep 18th 2014: adidas Originals 'Suisse' - Online Now

The adidas Suisse has always been a superior sneaker and from Central Europe exclusivity to selective colourways, adidas Originals have kept the Suisse close to their chests. 2014 marks the shoe's re-release and continues adidas' winning streak. Whilst every re-release throws up concerns regarding quality and compromise, adidas seem to have executed these well leaving them open to new fans and appealing to OGs.

Previously only available in Central Europe, the adidas Suisse has managed to retain a level of exclusivity that benefits all rarities. Whilst mass popularity could have killed it off, the Suisse remained one for those in the know, sitting quietly under the radar with understated styling and tooling that actually works.

With a lightweight sole unit and a premium suede upper, the Suisse is a superior affair but one that's reassuringly comfortable and fit for day to day wear. This season adidas Originals have opted for three colourways with relevance in the shoe's history and coincidentally they're suited to the long winter ahead. Just as we'd hoped, the same branding has been used throughout and Three Stripes and a Trefoil round the Suisse off perfectly.

Three colourways are now available both online and in-store priced at £72.

Sep 04th 2014: Nike Sportswear Air Max Lunar90 'Suit & Tie' Collection

Exploring the idea that you don't have to don a suit and tie to be successful, Nike Sportswear present the Suit And Tie collection utilisng the newly introduced Air Max Lunar90. According to Nike, some of the world's most prominent figures have made a name for themselves in a pair of 'cleats' and this is certainly a sentiment we agree with. It all cements the idea that sneakers are now a wardrobe staple and just as necessary as a good pair of dress shoes.

From herringbone to paisley the premium materials add an air of superiority to a silhouette that was previously very sports orientated. The materials echo ties and suit linings and inject sophistication into the Air Max Lunar90 like we've never seen before. The Lunarlon sole and visible air window are of course still in place and this ensures unmatched comfort in line with style.

The Nike Sportswear Suit And Tie Collection will be available at 00:01GMT Friday 5th September.

Aug 29th 2014: Carhartt WIP x Neighborhood - Online 4/9/14

Combining Carhartt's working experience with Neighborhood's inimitable aesthetic, Work In Progress present the latest collaboration just in time for autumn & winter '14. This season is inspired by a mutual appreciation for workwear and a passion for honest crafted products. It marks the their friendship progressing and is a milestone in what is becoming a long standing partnership.

An integral part of this season's output is quality and unfaltering attention to detail. Carhartt & NBHD consider this collection a colision of skill and attitude and this is definitely a sentiment we can get on board with. Although this is the first full capsule, the pair's origins date back to March 2012 when they worked together to commemorate the opening of Work In Progress in Shoreditch. Just like the retail outpost the colab has matured and grew into something truly memorable. 

The defining aspect of this season's efforts is of course NBHD's emblematic leopard print in conjunction with iconic Carhartt canvas. This adds flair to uniformity and aesthetic beauty to functional clothing. However, the colab doesn't stop at apparel and the collection also includes a number of accessories. From a reworked Watch Cap to a fragrance room tag produced in conjunction with Retaw, 

As you can imagine, distribution for the Carhartt & Neighborhood colab is particularly tight. We're pleased to be one of only a handful of retailers in the country with access to this and a special window display will be installed at our Albert Road location just before the big day. This ties in not only with this colaboration but the arrival of Carhartt WIP's winter '14 efforts over the coming weeks.

The limited edition Carhartt WIP x Neighborhood collection will be available both online and in-store September 4th.
