Adidas on the move….

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. By the way just incase you are not to familiar with me , I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to welcome you to my latest blog post Adidas on the move. So what do I mean by Adidas on the move , you may ask ? Well the ever popular athletic /lifestyle brand has been making waves in the industry every since I could remember and at this moment the brand does seem to be showing any signs of slowing down. They are set to release another new collaboration with the one and only

Bape brand but it dosen’t stop there, cause Adidas has collaborated with the likes of Bape before on a life style brand clothing that as always is or was in limited release.

such as these signature camo track suites and parka. But as I was saying before , this time there is a third brand being added into the mix for this new upcoming Fashion Collaboration.

The well known yet underground, renowned Japanese brand Neighborhood , however much like Adidas has collaborated before with Bape , the brand has also done a collaboration with Neighborhood as well.

So what we are currently looking at set to be released soon in the early part of 2019 , is a triple collaboration coming from the classic lifestyle brand. Adidas x Bape x Neighborhood , now true enough these three brands have come together before to create a new version of the ever popular classic Adidas Superstar

The latest shoe set to come out is going to combine signature graphics from both brands and will be known as the POD-S3.1

Along with this you will also get a limited release clothing line as well

Here is a look at two of the jackets set to be released under the new Adidas x Bape x Neighborhood collabo , not to miss the fact that some of the earlier Bape x Adidas clothing could be very well styled with the new sneakers also.

See what I mean ? This track jacket is a can’t miss with the soon to be released sneakers. Now previously this year Adidas did another collaboration with the one and only Kylie Jenner using her as the face for the re-release of the classic 90’s track sneaker known as The Falcon Dorf

The shoe was released a little earlier this year in various color ways

still staying true to it’s 90’s style , and as always Adidas has various pieces that you can style with the sneakers once again for a true 90’s feel yet giving it a modern twist and cut

Being worn by Kylie in these add pics for the release of the sneakers , looks exactly the way I would have styled the looks myself if I had put that JMADDD STYLES styling touch on each of these pieces.

Well there it is , we have reached the end of yet another blog post. This has been Adidas on the move and I AM JMADDD STYLES. That’s it for now, so until the next time IM GONE..!!!

When Art is Fashion and Fashion is Art….

Hello out there as always it’s good to see you , I AM JMADDD STYLES, and I would like to welcome you to my latest blog post When art is Fashion and Fashion is Art.

If you are familiar with this blog then you know there is nothing I like more than a good Fashionable collabo , and in this case we have a two for one so to speak.

Uniqlo , one of my favorite fashion private label retailers that took the disposable fashion formula like H&M and took it to a higher better quality level. They have become very well known for their various collaborations with different artists creating fashion lines out of art. This time around , not only have they done a mash up collaboration with Kaws and Sesame Street.

But they have also at the same time done a collaboration with the artistry of Basquiat , two of my absolute favorite contemporary artist , bringing fashion and art together. First up let’s jump right into the Kaws x Sesame Street x Uniqlo collabo.

This is actually not the first time that Uniqlo has done a collaboration with the artist Kaws , a little over a year or two , Uniqlo had collaborated on a Peanuts collection with the artist

so naturally after seeing the success with that collection, it would only make sense for Uniqlo to tap the artistry if Kaws for another collection for this season. Now whenever these collections are done , they are limited edition and consists of key pieces such as sweatshirts and tshirts that can easily be worn with other parts of Uniqlo’s core in house private label clothing. Right now as I so often do , im going to switch from my Fashion Blogger hat to my Fashion Stylist , Image Consultant and Personal Fashion Shopper hat , as I show you my personal favorites from the collection and show you how to style the garments as well giving it that JMADDD STYLES touch.

Here are my personal favorites from the collection , I was in NY recently at the Uniqlo store on 34th street where I saw these two items that caught my eye the most from this collection.

Here I styled two very distinct and different looks, from both the crewneck and the hoodie the hoodie and per usual I like to give you a menswear and a womenswear look to show how versatile each piece is , they are both standouts from the collection because of the artistry and im always a major fan of the color cream as well cause it always matches up with just about everything perfectly.

Then here once again I wanted to show you how to take a tshirt and turn it into a highend designer look , that could just about go anywhere.

Next let’s dive right into the Basquiat/Uniqlo collection , it’s not often that you will get two major collaborations from two major artists at the same time but im glad that it’s happening cause im a fan of both collections.

With the Basquiat collection , Uniqlo used some of the artists most popular prints turning them into what I call Fashionable Art once again bringing a new awareness to the artist opening up his work to an even wider audience.

For the styling of this collection im giving you once again style versatility in the form of both a menswear and womenswear look. Both looks are on the highend/affordable side , so you could go just about anywhere with these looks from day to night. In my professional opinion , I like the look of both of these artistic collaborations and that is largely in part because im a fan of both artists work. But enough about what I think , the real question as always is what do you think ? Are you hear for it or no ?? As always I LET YOU TELL IT.. Well there it is , we have reached the end of yet another fashionable blog post. I AM JMADDD and this has been When Art is Fashion and Fashion is Art. That’s it for now , so until the next time IM GONE…!!!

New and Fashionably Noteworthy : Cardi B , from music to Fashionova.

Hello out there , as always it’s good to see you , I AM JMADDD STYLES and welcome to my latest blog post.

New and Fashionably Noteworthy : Cardi B , from music to Fashionova. This week we saw the long awaited release of of the all new Fashionable collabo, FN x Cardi B

Cardi B has been dropping subtle hints on Instagram for months about her new upcoming fashion line with social media savy and affordable brand Fashionova. Well in LA , on Nov 15, 2018 at a launch party thrown for the line

we finally saw it come to life , and looking at the results of the line , it shows that sometimes it’s just your turn. What do I mean by that you may ask. No sooner then the line being introduced and seen for the first time on http://www.fashionova.com as you could live stream the release party the line sold out within minutes. So it basically seems that Cardi is winning in music and now fashion as well , like I was saying before ,

SOMETIMES IT’S JUST YOUR TURN and right now it’s just Cardi’s time. The line gives you a mod late 60’s /70’s feel for some of the pieces with a modern day feel appeal at the same time. The price range like most of Fashionova’s items seen in the past are very affordable with the most expensive item ranging around the ($199.00) mark. It consists of all the basic essentials, from jumpsuits , to dresses , coats pants suits and a variety of trendy seperates.

Now im going to throw on my Fashion Stylist , Image Consultant and Personal Fashion Shopper hat and put my personal styling touch on what I think are the stand our peices of the newly introduced and SOLD OUT line.

The first item that I went with was this full length faux snake skin coat , now keep in mind often enough when I style items from a new fashion line I like to mix them with other lines to show versatility instead always head to toe styling. Especially when the line is put in the affordable category, I like to put it with more highend items to give you a highend/affordable look.

Next let’s take a look at this off the shoulder faux leather dress , which I have to say in my Personal Professional Opinion , Fashhionova has done an excellent job with it’s faux items for the line , as the pieces are completely believable with other actual leather items. That is the key when it comes to faux leather or or fur items , that they look as authentic as possible and this line does that very easily.

As can be seen with this 70’s inspired faux leather/suede jumpsuit or as I like to call it Vegan leather. Here for this look im giving you full 70’s with a modern approach , pairing the jumpsuit with a very classic mod style suede jacket and ankle boots , finishing the look with a fedora and aviator glasses.

Then for this item , I went for more of a menswear inspired look , to bring the best out of this double breasted blazer dress , keeping it sexy-chic , added a suede over the knee boot , with a suede fedora to bring out the boots more. Finishing the look with a signature MVMT Watch and aviator glasses.

For this plaid pants suit , I kept it once again on the order of a menswear inspired look, but keeping the color scheme classic for the look , adding in black with the boots , leather trench , and eyewear. Topping the look off with a major wardrobe staple , the classic white shirt.

Then the last of the standout items from the line is this faux leather motorcycle style jacket , building the look from the jacket , with Dapper Dan for Gucci high waisted jeans , classic Gucci ankle boot , and once again the classic white shirt. Once again demonstrating the versatility of the line creating a true highend/affordable look. Well there it is , my personal favorites from the Cardi B line , so what do you think ? As always I LET YOU TELL IT….but judging from the sales numbers, this line is a success with the masses.

Once again just like that , we have reached the end of yet another blog post. This has been New and Fashionably Noteworthy : Cardi B , from music to Fashionova. I AM JMADDD STYLES and that’s it for now , so until the next time IM GONE!!!!

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 pieces 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 pieces , 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 pieces 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 pieces 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 piece. 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….!!!!
