Fashionable inspiration is everywhere : Stan Lee, Marvel Comics…

Hello out there TRUE BELIEVERS as always it’s good to see you , I AM JMADDD STYLES. Welcome to my latest blog post : Fashionable Inspiration is everywhere : Stan Lee , Marvel Comics. The inspiration first and foremost for this particular blog, is the one and only Stan Lee. There has never been a bigger Influence when it comes to being creative and pushing your Imagination to it’s furthest limits , then the lead creator of the Marvel Universe ,than Stan Lee himself. From the first time I picked up a comic book and began collecting comics as a kid well over 38 years ago, (not to give away my age) , up to the present time , when I have often used my love of comics as an inspirational back drop to many of the looks that I come up with.

Due to Stan Lee’s creation of so many of these classic characters that have shaped much of our child hoods , not only was I inspired to jump back into collecting comic books,

but my fashionably creative side continues to be challenged to come up with even more creative ways to combine two of my biggest interests both fashion and comicbooks , two things that seem to be on two total and opposite ends of the spectrum , but they really aren’t.

Because in so many ways , the creativity that goes into creating a character that translates from pen to your favorite comic’s that you somehow relate to , and now to the movie screen , is almost parallel to the the same creativity that it takes to go from brainstorming , to mental perception , to bringing a look to life that is made to fit , inhance , and bring out someone’s personality that the look was created for. Over the years Stan Lee has been instrumental in first hand creating or co-creating the very characters that have helped inspire many of my Fashionable Creations.

Now let’s take an even closer look at how Stan Lee’s creations have influenced or inspired many of the styles that I have created over the years , as I’ve always said , there’s what you see then there is what I see.

The inspiration never stops , it’s as infinite as the roster of Stan Lee characters , these are just a few of my personal favorite inspired looks , but this could go on and on , if you compare the amount of years of comic books I have stored in my mental rolodex. So ill just leave it right here and sign off with this famous word…..

EXCELSIOR STAN LEE and thanks for all the inspiration and very rememberable stories. Well we have just reached the end of yet another blog post. I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been Fashionable Inspiration is everywhere : Stan Lee ,Marvel Comics. That’s it for now , so until the next time IM GONE !!!

NUFF SAID…..

New and Fashionably Noteworthy: Timberland x Champion

Hello out there im back again…&…as always it’s good to see you. For those out there , that may not be to familiar with me , I AM JMADDD STYLES , and I would like to welcome you to my latest blog post , New and Fashionably Noteworthy : Timbaland x Champion.

This must be the year of the Fashionable Collabo, and as you well know , there is nothing I like better than a good Fashionable collabo. This is one of the collabs that you would think should have happened a long time ago. But there is no time like the present , I always say. The collaboration that im speaking of is Timberland x Champion

A limited release collection that is being released online first at

http://www.footlocker.com , on three different dates , the first half of the collection was already released on November 10th , known as the Luxe Pack , the next half will be released on Nov 30th , known as the Sport pack . Now let’s take a closer look at this new Fashionable collabo with my styling touch.

I wanted to give you a better look at this collection, of course I had to add a little more of my touch by styling the looks with the Dapper Dan for Gucci glasses.

These are just two of the colorways to start with, they started the collection with the basic yet most popular color and style of the Timberland boots , the black and new buck better known as butters. A little later another colorway will be introduced

in both the joggers and the boots , I got to admit , im usually strictly the new buck colorway or butters , but this grey has a real stylish touch to it , that I could definitely work with.

Then just to take you a little down the Timberland x Champion line you will see this powder blue colorway get introduced, which once again from my Fashion Stylist point of view , I have to say these are worth taking a look at and picking up just for novelty purposes, to say that you have a peice of this limited release collection. Well there it is , we have just reached the end of yet another blog post. I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been New and Fashionably Noteworthy : Timbaland x Champion. Are you here for it ? As always I LET YOU TELL IT. However that’s it for now , so until the next time IM GONE!!

New and Fashionably Noteworthy: The Dap is back.

Hello out there , as always it’s good to see you , you could be anywhere else in the world but your here with me. With that said , im going to take this time out to welcome you to my latest blog post . New and Fashionably Noteworthy : The Dap is back, by the way incase you didn’t know , I AM JMADDD STYLES . I’ve said it before and ill say it again , There is nothing like a GOOD FASHIONABLE COLLABO and the collabo that im about to speak on has been many years in the making. Im talking about the one and only Dapper Dan finally coming together to create a collection with Gucci.

For those that may not know the back story , in the late 80’s to about the early to mid 90’s , Dapper Dan was pretty much single handedly responsible for introducing premium high end designer goods with his own special twist to the masses.

The problem was he didn’t have permission to do so , but the way he recreated these brands , caused a major fashion buzz everywhere and with regular folk and celebrities alike . But the buzz had a down side and that was these brands putting a cease and desist on Daps creations. Causing him to basically go quiet for a little while.

shutting the doors of his Harlem based boutique. Fast forward to now , his creations are still remembered from then , so much so that when Gucci sent a look down the runway a few yrs ago, it was easily recognized as one of Dapper Dans creations , causing Gucci to have to give credit to Dap , and eventually begin working on bringing the look of his creations back for a new generation. Hence forth The Dap is back ,

With a brand new Harlem boutique and a partnership with Gucci ,to recreate a brand new collection , that would pick up where he left off putting his unique spin on Gucci.

Not only can you get a special made to order now authentic Gucci , look made for you at his new boutique , but there is also currently being introduced a special limited edition Dapper Dan collection.

That im about to show you and style for you , that is authentically reminiscent of his original creations from the past. So much so that it looks like he never skipped a beat.

as you can see from the pic of Rakim in Dapper Dan Gucci in the late 80’s/early 90’s . Below it is the new version of that same sweat suit , as you can see it is very similar to the original created yrs ago. As can also be seen on this early creation done for Bobby Brown

and below it is the new Dapper Dan creation which is created to look almost identical to the original created yrs ago. The difference between then and now is the fact that Gucci is behind the line and the boutique so it’s no longer a good knockoff but the real deal and seeing as how the reason so many of us recognized these brands yrs ago was Dapper Dan , this collaboration has been truly a long time coming. Now let’s take an even further look at this all new collection. I have taken some of my favorites from the line and put my styling touch on them.

In picture one , the look is head to toe Dapper Dan except for the watch , in picture two , the womenswear look shows how Dapper Dan has expanded into jeans but still using the same jacket to show the versatility of the line, the rest is conventional Gucci , showing how you can work in other peices.

Next giving you a womenswear and a menswear look , picture one shows another classic Dapper Dan sweat suit with the new sneakers and the all new signature Dapper Dan for Gucci glasses. In picture two still showing the versatility of the line , switching up the flava with a Gucci skirt , the new Dapper Dan for Gucci jacket ,the all new Dapper Dan sneakers and the signature Dapper Dan for Gucci glasses, and threw in some Moschino boots for an alternative option.

The coolest aspect of this line is the fact that it brings back a streetwear style from an era gone by. But it exposes it to a generation that knows nothing of this classic 90s era fashion , the great thing is the fit is up to date for now , but the style is pure classic , as I said before, it’s almost like Dapper Dan never skipped a beat , as though the doors to his original boutique never closed and he never stopped bringing upscale highend brands being done his way to the masses. To put it simply THE DAP IS BACK. Well there it is , we’ve come to the end of yet another blog post , this has been New and Fashionably Noteworthy : The Dap is back. I AM JMADDD STYLES and that’s it for now , so until the next time IM GONE!!

New and Fashionably Noteworthy : Moschino x H&M…

Hello out there as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to take this time out to welcome you to my latest blog post , another installment of New and Fashionably Noteworthy : Moschino x H&M.

If you are familiar my blog posts, then you have herd me say it before , and ill say it again. I love it when a good fashionable collabo comes together. Especially when it combines a high end designer or brand with a more affordable brand. When it comes to the High end affordable collabo , not many do it better than H&M , it seems they have been a little on the fashionable lay low since the coolest monkey in the jungle scandal. However they are back with a major collabo , it seems that H&M has tapped designer Jermy Scott for their latest collabo , for a H&M /Moschino mash up.

Where you get the best of both worlds , the high end feel and look of Moschino with the affordability of H&M , slated for release on Nov 8 , both in stores and online. The price point ranges from 50.00$ to upwards of 350.00$ , which for Moschino is a true steal. The line has the feel and look of a lux /streetwear combination. With some pop culture references and some well known cartoon characters. But I can show you better than I can tell you , so let’s take a look at some of my favorite peices from the line , and ill show you some of my personal styling tips for the line.

usually when you get a collaboration like this , you don’t always get a whole lot of peices , but in this case Jermy Scott , came with a pretty extensive line let’s take a look at a few more pieces.

The line will consist of both accessories like handbags, jewelry, and shoes , and cover all the major streetwear aspects as well, or should I say trendy must haves. But now that I have shown you some of the line , let’s style a few of my favorite items from the line.

keep in mind I like to mix in other peices when im styling , but right here you are seeing the signature leather dress from the line , being styled with both the signature over the knee Moschino/ H&M boot , and the leather jacket, to complete the look I threw in a pair of leather gloves.

Here is another of my favorite peices from the line , the Disney character hoody with another signature item , the gold leather pants , one again the look being completed with a pair of leather gloves.

Here im giving you a technique of mixing and matching the pieces together with clothing outside of the line , showing you the versatility of how these looks can be worn.

The line consists of both menswear and womenswear, so as not to limit the audience that can own a some of this novelty line when it hits stores. So what do you think ? Is this latest fashionable collabo ,got what it takes to create a fashion frenzy when it hits online and on shelves? As always I LET YOU TELL IT. Well there it is , we have just reached the end of yet another blog post, I hope you have enjoyed this quick sneek peek of the line , so you can be prepared when you go get your novelty peice. That’s it for now , so until the next time I AM JMADDD STYLES , this has been New and Fashionably Noteworthy : Moschino x H&M….&…just like that IM GONE….!!!!

The Designer Spotlight : Fendi Mania.

Hello out there as always it’s good to see you. You could be anywhere else in the world , but your here with me. With that said , I would like to welcome you to my latest blog post Fendi Mania. If you are wondering what Fendi Mania is , it’s a limited release capsule collection, that will be a throw back of logo heavy pieces like you have seen in the past. The new Fendi logo for the collection , was done intentionally to look like the Fila Italia logo , just to make you have to take a double take when looking at it.

See what I mean? The collection is slated for official release on October 16th and will have a more streetwear feel to it , hence the logo.

as seen on the bags that go with the collection , the collection will also have limited styles of sneakers and shoes

this perticular pair of the sneakers really caught my eye as I was looking at the collection , the shoes and boots are equally as impressive ,

and are made to complement the collection of clothes that are apart of the line , from the Fila style of sweaters and sweatshirts ,

which can be styled in various ways , especially when styled with a real casual streetwear feel and look to almost take you anywhere you need to be.

as you can see here with the way that I styled these pieces to have more of a casual cool vibe with a slight sporty style to show how versatile the collection could be.

Such as here where I wanted to give you a more urban ski style , dressing the collection up a little more , but still keeping the classic streetwear vibe.

Then to complement these pieces , there is a real throwback to the oldschool Fendi logo , a dressy casual sweatsuit that can be worn together,

or be mixed and matched separately, to create a variety of looks to get a good amount of usage out of these peices that you will pay a pretty penny for.

This first look that I styled gives you the full sweatsuit being worn together, but to break up the monotony of the heavy logo representation, used a red ankle boot and peplum style motorcycle jacket also in red giving a true high end fly girl look.

Then here im showing you how to take the same sweatshirt and dress it up more with a suede dress pant completely changing the dynamic of the look , as well as widening the spectrum of the age range of whom would wear it.

In addition to the more sporty back packs and gym style bags shown earlier, there is also an old school Fendi logo tote bag and the ever so trendy fanny pack also.

The new capsul collection will be available in various retail outlets as well as http://www.fendi.com , on the day of it’s release , once again being Oct 16th .

So Fendi Mania, are you hear for it ? As always I LET YOU TELL IT. There is , we have just reached the end of another blog post , I AM JMADDD STYLES, and this has been The Designer Spotlight : Fendi Mania. I AM JMADDD STYLES and this is all for now , so until the next time….IM GONE.

We are Venom….

Hello out there as always it’s good to see you. You could be anywhere else in the world but your here with me. I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to welcome you to my latest blog post We are Venom. This weekend we saw the release of the long awaited Venom solo movie. If you are familiar with me then you know that as much as I am into fashion , I have equally as high of an interest in comicbooks. So I tend to combine my like for comic’s and fashion and bring them together under one fashionable roof . Especially when a new movie hits the scene. By the way, side bar , the movie was reasonably good and a lot of fun to watch. It was also fairly accurate from a comic head perspective. But now im about to show you how to turn Venom into being fashion forward. Whenever these movies drop , there is also a line of very cool movie merch and streetwear fashion that come along with it. So putting on my Fashion Stylist hat here is how to make comic fashion into fashion forward fashion.

This first look gives you a way to take the Venom T-shirt and incorporate it into being a casually cool look with a blazer , creating a dressy casual streetwear vibe , that can go just about anywhere.

This next look , highlights the Venom T-shirt in a bit of a different way. Instead of going all black , using a lightly washed blue jean , with black accents. Take note of the Venom belt , that is designed to look like a car seatbelt , finishing the look with a leather bomber jacket and rugged yet stylish boot.

For the third look , decided to go with a little womenswear styling . Im not called JMADDD STYLES, for nothing you know. After all im there are a lot of fashion forward comic head ladies out there as well . With this look , once again turning the Venom , baby-T into a highend designer savvy look , completing the look with a beanie to add a little additional flava to this comicbook fashion. All the looks create a true fashion mash up , with items that most may not consider putting together.

So Are you Venom ? As always I LET YOU TELL IT . Well there it is we have reached the end of yet another blog post. This has been We are Venom , and I AM JMADDD STYLES. That’s it for now , so until the next time IM GONE….
