Fashionably Hot in 2019 : MVMT Watches.

Hello out there , as always it’s good to see you. Im back once again with my second blog post of 2019 , coming back at you with another installment of Fashionably Hot in 2019 : MVMT Watches. By the way I would like to reintroduce myself, I AM JMADDD STYLES. Today we are going to talk not just fashion , but fashionable accessories. As you may well know the right watch can complete a look just as much as the perfect pair of shoes. So today we are going to get into my favorite new watch brand. That brand being MVMT Watches. Now I spoke of this young upstart company in a previous blog (see Dip-set Couture). But since I spoke of them the first time , this new company has greatly expanded on their brand . The company was recently acquired by The Movado Group , now giving them a more wider base and advertisement capabilities. The brand focuses on both men’s and women’s watches, as well as other accessories that complement the watch line. So without any further or do let’s dive in first taking a look at the new men’s watches and complimenting accessories.

Men’s MVMT Watches :

You see the great thing about this watch company is that they have found a way to give you the perfect watch from a style stand point that is high on quality and style but even better on the price point.

Each watch is competitively priced between 130.00$ and 145.00$ , a price range you cannot beat for the quality of time peice that you are getting , each watch is designed to fit almost any style. But they also are matched with a special designed pair of MVMT sunglasses also if you want the full MVMT style experience.

MVMT also offers a gift set just incase you can’t make up your mind on what direction you want to be in where you get a watch with interchangeable band and sunglasses as well all competitively priced

just what other new upstart watch company do you know of that is offering so much for such an affordable price? I LET YOU TELL IT. Next let’s take a look at the MVMT women’s watches and complimenting accessories.

Women’s watches :

The women’s watches offer elegant style that is not overdone, but done just right to once again fit every womans style esthetic.

As you can see from the styles that I picked as some of my personal favorites, however for the women’s line , it is complimented by not only sunglasses but also a line of signature bracelets.

Once again just like the men’s line of watches , there is also an all in one box set that can be purchased with an individually styled watch , bracelet and sunglasses , creating the ultimate watch buying experience, the watches and accessories can be purchased on (http://www.mvmtwatches.com) . Let’s take another look at the men’s and women’s all in one box….

So as you can see joining the movement is well worth it , and MVMT Watches is most definitely worthy of being deemed Fashionably Hot in 2019. Well there it is , we have just reached the end of the second blog post of 2019. I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been Fashionably Hot in 2019 : MVMT Watches. That’s it for now , so until the next time….IM GONE…!!!

Fashionably Hot in 2019 : MCM….

Hello out there as always it’s good to you , I would like to welcome you to my first blog post for 2019. Fashionably Hot in 2019 : MCM , by the way incase you’re not familiar with me yet I AM JMADDD STYLES and it’s good to be back. It’s that time again, what time is it you may ask ? I refer to it as the Fashionable Time of Year. That’s when all the new fashions hit the runways in advance of the upcoming seasons, the fashion trade shows happen in Vegas and NY and all the Fashionable People gather from city to city , country to country to see what’s new and hot and MCM is where im going to get started. First and foremost I have to say it’s one of my favorite upscale luxury brands , and from what I see , im impressed with how the brand is coming for 2019 , for it’s Fall , Pre-fall , and spring season. MCM is always most known for it’s signature belts , bags and back packs.

This season we see a new look for the MCM clutches and bags , such as this new men’s clutch with a new logo on front, instead of the most known signature logo.

They have also introduced a new camo inspired weekender bag, that gives a new look at how the MCM logo is being placed. But im not going to spend a lot of time on the MCM bag game , cause I know your familiar with it. However the fashions , that’s not something you see a lot of and that’s what really got my attention this season.

What really suprises me when it comes to MCM’s clothing is that instead of being more on the side of highend Couture, it more takes on the style of streetwear , highend streetwear or Couture to be precise

catering more to a Hip Hop fashion lifestyle, with a higher price tag , the thing of it is the label does a good job at , especially this year for the 2019 season

the other task that MCM manages to accomplish is both their women’s and men’s lines are pretty much the same but , they have found a way not to compromise the integrity of either men’s or women’s clothing.

meaning whomever is wearing it , it looks like it was still intended for them to wear , not to small knor to big but just right , somewhere in the clothing mid-ground of streetwear perfect.

Where the looks translate and appeal to everyone and almost any age range especially those that are from the original as I call it Dapper Dan era , ( see previous blog The Dap is Back).

Now the price range on most of MCM’s goods as I often say are not for the Fashionably Faint of Heart , basically you got to pay to play if you want the look , but isn’t that always the case?

Of course it is , the average range of or price point can go easily this season from $ 250.00 up to about 1,350.00$ , give or take a few dollars , theses looks can all be shopped on ( us.mcmworldwide.com). Side note , despite the price tag , MCM still comes cheaper or more affordable than it’s highend competition.

Well there it is , we have come to the end of our first blog post of 2019 , stay tuned, more to come. I will be reviewing more new looks for 2019 from some of your favorite designers and mine too. I will also doing a little Fashion week talk with another new NYFW blog post , coming in the next few weeks. This has been Fashionably Hot in 2019 : MCM and of course I AM JMADDD STYLES. That’s it for now so until the next time IM GONE….!!!

Welcome to Atlantis : Aquaman Style inspiration.

Hello out there as always it’s good to see you. You could be anywhere else in the world but you’re here with me. I would like to welcome you to what is truly going to be my final blog post of the year. Welcome to Atlantis : Aquaman Style Inspiration, now I’ve been sitting on the idea of this blog for a little while. Because as you know , I usually jump right on new comicbook movies for Fashionable Inspiration, but for this one I had to really deliberate over and figure out a way to turn this new on screen triumph into a fashion inspired blog post.

But as I often say Fashionable Inspiration is everywhere, including the pages of your favorite comic’s. Well after much creative deliberation , im finally to bring you the looks that the Aquaman movie and comicbooks have inspired within my Fashionable imagination. The looks that I came with for this blog post were or are inspired by three of the major characters from the film as well as the comicbook. Starting with of course Author Curry himself (Aquaman)

For this look I wanted capture the look and base colors of the original Aquaman suit. To do this I had to go with an actual character shirt , combined with more highend pieces to complement the shirt and build an unexpected lux look around the T-shirt.

For the next inspired look , I went with one of the major villains of the film and the books , that being Black Manta.

For this look , I went with more of an athletic style , capturing the look of Black Manta , by styling a more mat-black sweatsuit accented by a new high tech cross trainer, finishing the look with some red lensed sports shades to capture the true look and feel of Black Manta.

Then for the last look that I was inspired by the film to create , capturing the look of Princess Mera , which I have to say was probably the most challenging of the looks to create, so far as what direction to go in.

So once again I went with a more highend designer savy look , capturing the green and gold colors that she is most known for. To do this , I used a more classic blouse top , paired it with a jogger styled pant and finished the look with a gold pump and gold accent watch , perfectly capturing the feel and look of Princess Mera.

There you have it all my looks inspired by this visually incredible screen adaptation of a classic comicbook hero and with that said we have just reached the end of the final blog post of 2018. Hopefully I will see more of you in 2019 , as I have lots of fashionable content to cover. This has been Welcome to Atlantis: Aquaman Style inspiration. I AM JMADDD STYLES and that’s for now , so until the next time….IM GONE!!!

New and Fashionably Noteworthy: Adidas meets Gucci…

Hello out there as always it’s good to see you , just figured I would end out the year with at least one more new Fashionable collabo. Adidas has really been on the role in the last year or so 2017/18 , and have had some really great collaborations such as the last one that I spoke of with Bape x Neighborhood x Adidas. Well there is another limited release collabo , that kind of went completely under the radar.

Two highly unlikely brands to meet up and come with the ultimate Fashionable hybrid. The question is so what does it or would it look like if Adidas came together with luxury brand Gucci . Well VP of Global design for Adidas, Nic Galaway came with the ultimate answer when he came with this atheletic luxury combo a little over a year or so ago , beginning or first concepted and introduced in 2017. The NMD_RL x Gucci.

A very cool way to bring the brands together and create the ultimate lux / atheletic shoe , being introduced in both a white and black colorway, first . I had to really look into this sneaker first to make sure it was completely legit and after much digging, turns out it is.

the best thing about it is , it was put on the market for much cheaper than you would think , ranging between 160$ and 200$ making it more affordable than the average Gucci sneaker.

taking the Adidas NMD to a whole other level

there was even introduced the Adidas Yeezy Boost x Adidas x Gucci x Off White collaboration also. Like I said before in one of my last blogs Adidas is REALLY ON THE MOVE. Keeping it over the years a consistent competitor in the athletic brand market.

Even still after all these years , the sneaker can be found on a few specialty sites such as http://www.hypemini.com and http://www.stockx.com just to name a few , competitively priced in the same range. So the Adidas x Gucci collabo , are you here for it ??? As always I LET YOU TELL IT. There it is , we have reached the end of another blog post , and possibly the last one of 2018 , that will remain to be seen. I AM JMADDD and this has been New and Fashionably Noteworthy : Adidas meets Gucci. That’s it for now , so until the next time….IM GONE…!!!

The Art of Fashionable Investing….

Hello out there as always it’s good to see you. Just incase you are not to familiar, I AM JMADDD STYLES and I want to take this time out to welcome you to my latest blog post The Art of Fashionable Investing. Today we are going to talk fashion but in a different kind of way, im going to put a different spin on the usual direction and get more into the business of fashion. So you may be asking what is Fashionable Investing ? Well it’s an idea I came up with a little while ago when I was more on the designer end of the business, thinking to myself it would be hard to catch up to and surpass some of the major players in the world of fashion , specifically if you are funding yourself. But then I began to think maybe competing is not the answer, perhaps the old adage IF YOU CAN’T BEAT THEM, JOIN THEM. But you have to figure out how you are going to join them , if you see the picture at the top , that is a stock market graph showing you the activity of a particular fashion giant.

The graph is an overview of the Stockmarket activity of Michael Kors Holdings, which is the parent company of Michael Kors and all the other fashion companies that come under the umbrella of Kors Holdings. That being just to name a few Jimmy Choo Shoes, and the recently acquired House of Versace that Michael Kors Holdings brought for approximately Two Billion a few months ago. Now most of you out there will pay major dollars for a pair of these

from Jimmy Choo , or go through great lengths to try and afford a piece of

Versace no matter how large or small , but what you probably never thought to yourself was the fact that you can own a piece of these companies, for much cheaper than it costs to buy those Jimmy Choo’s or the Versace book bag and belts. You see most major fashion companies can be found on the stock market and are publicly traded, you just have to research what companies are out there and find the correct investment code or symbol to be on your way to being a Fashionable Investor. In the case of Michael Kors Holdings you can buy your way in for (36.41 $) (KORS) a share , see what I mean when I say it would be cheaper to buy a piece of the company than to buy the actual designer goods. Bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase IF YOU CAN’T BEAT THEM, JOIN THEM, or even better yet beat them from the inside. But it doesn’t just stop there , another good example to look at is underwear giant

Victoria’s Secret, this company comes underneath the umbrella of L Brands Inc. (LB) and can be purchased for as little as (24.91 $ ) per share , now that may fluctuate up or down periodically, but this stock for the most part does well cause overall they almost have a lock on the intamates apparel industry with only a few competitors but once that Victoria’s Secret fashion show passes each year , they really see a spike in sales and stock. Let’s take a look at one more company , this time im going to take you more on the streetwear side ,

didn’t see this coming did you , currently one of the hottest and most sought after skate brands on the market has just become publicly traded by partnering up with investment firm The Carlyle Group. Now it has been said that since this acquisition went through The Supreme clothing co. has reached the billion dollar mark. However you can have a part of this company by Investing in The Carlyle Group at (16.12 $ ) per share , much cheaper than owning or even finding a piece of Supreme clothing in itself. There are so many more companies that I could tell you about , but I just wanted to give you a quick overview , so im going to stop right here , perhaps I will revisit this subject in another future blog post . For now however, it looks like we have reached the end of yet another blog post, I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been The Art of Fashionable Investing. That’s it for now , so until the next time IM GONE…..!!!

By the way just incase you are not familiar with me or this blog, I AM JMADDD STYLES and this is my latest blog and installment of New and Fashionably Noteworthy : Puma x Transformers. It looks like over the last year or so Puma has really been on the move , with rebranding and rebuilding the classic brand . They have collaborated with Rihanna for her Fenty collection and MCM for the limited edition Puma/MCM sneakers. Well the sportswear brand is back with yet ( A-nother ) collaboration and I got to admit I didn’t see this one coming. Just in time for the release of the new

Bumblebee The movie , they are set to release their latest collaborative effort , a limited edition collection dedicated to the

Transformers , the inspiration behind this two sneaker style and mini clothing line collection is Bumblebee

and Optimus Prime. The sneakers are a variation of the RS-X track sneakers

To accompany the new sneakers , there are new track suits , T-shirts , and hats.

The line was already released overseas , and will be released online on both ( http://www.footlocker.com ) as well as ( http://www.puma.com ) just in time for the release of the new movie this weekend . So Transformers x Puma are you here for it ??? As always I LET YOU TELL IT , and just like that we have come to the end of another blog post I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been New and Fashionably Noteworthy : Puma x Transformers. That’s it for now , so until the next time…. I’M GONE…!!!!

Into the Spiderverse with style….

Hello everyone out there as always it’s good to see you , once again im back with another blog post. By the way incase you didn’t know I AM JMADDD STYLES and this is Into the Spiderverse with style. By now you should have figured out that I’m as much a comic head as I am a fashion head or into fashion. Often enough the two of them (fashion) and (comic’s ) come together for a common theme or a mashup infusing them together for a different way to see fashion and comicbooks. This weekend we see Spider-Man return to the theaters but with a slightly different twist , it’s a cartoon movie , that interestingly enough introduces you to a variety of Spider-Man based characters that exist in alternate realities. Now if your not a comic head then that makes absolutely no sense to you , but ride with me on this journey anyway, so you can see how im going to spin it into a fashion blog and not just comicbook talk. First and foremost the film is well done and very innovative in the way that it expounds on the vast universe or multiverse of Spider-men and woman. For all my True Believers out there , the film is rich with easter eggs and comic references from comic books and previous movies some obvious and some not so obvious , all in all an excellent movie. The film introduces you to aside from Spider-Man five more Spider characters. But there are three that really caught my eye and attention, I already knew about them but on screen I gained a new appreciation for them, now im going to put on my fashion hat. That’s because seeing them and their story inspired me from a fashion standpoint. First up is the main character of the film

often known as the new Spider-Man , whom also happens to be black and his whole style and way of growing up is almost the polar opposite of Peter Parker , other than the fact that they are both intelligent. He is Miles Morales. He takes the Spider suit to another level and adds his own style to it , making it come off as not just a set of tights but a very cool streetwear look.

Down to the Air jordan one’s , capturing a kid with Brooklyn style and attitude behind the mask. Next up we are introduced to Spider-Man Noir

this incarnation of the Spider-Man character is from another time period , he is known as Spider-Man Noir , his style and look is a bit or a lot different from the rest of the Spider-Men , his look is pretty much down right stylish and fashionable from the leather coat to the vest down to the pants. Inspiring a look that is timeless yet current.

Then there is the first of the Spider-Women to be introduced in this film , in an alternate universe she is Spider Gwen in the normal comic universe she was Gwen Stacey , another girlfriend of Peter Parker.

Much like Miles Morales, Spider-Gwen inspires a streetwear inspired look that is both street and fly at the same time.

Last there is the original himself, the one that started it all , Peter Parker, The Amazing Spider-Man. What is most fashionably inspiring about him is the color scheme of his suit, it can be translated in so many different ways, but here is what I see when I look at the original Spider-Man.

The look is more so an upscale streetwear brand savy look , that at the same time shows a fashionable sense of humor when you look at the hat that finishes off the look. There it is , we have just reached the end of yet another blog post , I told you I was going to flip this into a fashion read , you just had to watch carefully to see how.

I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been Into the Spider-verse with style , that’s it for now , so until the next time IM GONE…!!!
