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….

Designer Spotlight : Michael kors & Versace.

Hello out there as always I would like to take this time out to welcome you to my latest blog post : The Designer Spotlight, Michael Kors x Versace. But before I get started , for those not to familiar with me I AM JMADDD STYLES, you’re Fashion Stylist , Image Consultant , Personal Fashion Shopper and now Fashion/Style Blogger. When it comes to fashion , my interest dosen’t just stop at the creative side of the game . For that matter to truly be well rounded in this field, you have to be knowledgeable of more than just the clothes but the big business behind the clothes. Now I know I often say there is nothing I like better than a good Fashionable collabo , but this is that times two. It seems that Michael Kors

has just recently acquired or brought major fashion house Versace

for approximately 2.1 BILLION. I told you this was major on the Fashionable collabo side. It seems that as of late aside from just putting out great clothing and accessories, Michael Kors has been expanding his empire by acquiring other brands , such as the recent purchase of Jimmy Choo shoes for 1.2 BILLION.

Donatello Versace , will still be on board as creative director, which will be very important to the brand maintaining it’s true look and feel.

Which is one of the reasons why this merger was such a surprise to me , because the brands are so opposite on the style spectrum.

The Michael Kors brand albeit one of my favorites, focuses on Classic American Tailoring & Style with a more calm look , don’t want to call it conservative but definitely not as flashy as Versace which I also like.

See what I mean, two completely opposite looks , but then that’s what will make this partnership so great especially as long as the mind of Donatello Versace is still behind the brand and calling the shots. Well there it is , we have come to the end of yet another blog post. This has been The Designer Spotlight : Michael Kors & Versace. I AM JMADDD STYLES, that’s it for now , so until the next time IM GONE…..

New and Fashionably Noteworthy : The Bad Guy.

Hello out there as always it’s good to see you , I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to take this tome out to as always welcome you to my latest blog post , the newest edition of New and Fashionably Noteworthy : The Bad Guy. It looks like there is another new collaboration in the fashion world , and if you are a regular reader , then you know there is nothing I like more than a good Fashionable Collabo that has the potential to actually work and work well. The new Fashionable Team on the block is the one and only Nicki Minaj and Fashion giant

Diesel , The limited edition capsul and collection and duo was introduced at Milan Fashion Week.

Nicki is not a new comer to the world of fashion or fashion collabo’s , a little over a year or so ago Ms. Minaj did a limited edition collection for H&M

It consisted of a few key pieces from a leather skirt , T-shirts , belts , faux fur , denim jackets and other trendy pieces.

The collection although small had the potential to grow into a major deal where the line could have been expanded, but then the controversy hit with H&M and the now infamous Coolest Monkey in the Jungle add created such a big stir that Nicki Minaj severed ties with H&M causing the collection to pretty much go unseen , except for by a few like myself that knew it was coming. But fast forward to right now , she’s back with Diesel and a new limited edition collection.

Labeled The Bad Guy , and you thought she was just spitting lyrics in her new intro single Chung Lee , little did most of us know it was also an upcoming clothing collection to be introduced at this years Milan Fashion Week. The message behind the line is that it is aimed at anti bullying by letting you know , The More Hate You Wear The less you care.

Since the collection is limited, right now there are only a few pieces being put out , one of the stand outs to me is this denim jacket with all the anti bullying slogans written on it.

Along with a few other parts of the collection as can be seen in this promo add as well , so you get a trendy Haute Couture collection that also carries a very now purpose.

During Milan Fashion Week , the line was being very heavily promoted throughout the city and Ms Minaj was on her ( A) game as she helped introduce and promote this new line that is at present available right now.

The collection is priced from moderate starting at 98.00$ going all the way up to 1,198.00$ for items such as the coat that you see in the promo shot above , the line can be shopped on ( http://www.shop.diesel.com ), as well as in some of their various free standing stores. So Nicki Minaj x Diesel , what do you think ? As always , I LET YOU TELL IT. Me myself im not sure how I feel about this one in my own professional opinion , I will have to watch how it unfolds. But im feeling like this will do better overseas then in the states. I don’t know that there will be a major frenzy online or in stores with lines of Fashion Forward folkes waiting to storm the stores just to get at least one novelty peice of the collection. Especially since it seemed to come out so under the radar , (OF COURSE I COULD BE WRONG) . Guess we will just have to wait and see.

So there it is , we have reached the end of yet another blog post. This has been Fashionably New and Noteworthy : The Bad Guy. I AM JMADDD STYLES and until the next time , that’s it for now… IM GONE.

New and Fashionably Noteworthy :

Hello out there as always it’s good to see you , for those not to familiar with me I AM JMADDD STYLES , and I would like to welcome you to my latest blog post. The third installment of New and Fashionably Noteworthy. Today’s topic once again covers the return of 90’s style streetwear to the fashion market of now. The brand that im showcasing today….(hint) (hint) , it’s at the top of the page. Still not sure what I mean , well in the words of Nas , Escobar Season has returned.

Nas started a rather under the radar streetwear line a little while ago , like a lot of his ventures, they are what I refer to as quite success stories. The name of his line is HSTRY.

But it doesn’t stop there , The brand has just released a limited run collection, collaborating with the one and only Karl Kani ,

the new collaboration is called Escobar Season. It consists of track jackets , joggers , special limited edition throw back Karl Kani , Escobar Season sweatshirts, T-shirts , and crewneck pullovers.

The line is a definite take off of the original Karl Kani line in the mid 90’s , when at the time Nas was the face of the brand and used in various campaigns.

Looking at the current climate of fashion right now , with the return to the 90’s and so many streetwear brands making a comeback ( But don’t call it a comeback) , it’s the perfect time for such a collaboration to hit the world of streetwear fashion.

This is one of the original Nas for Karl Kani adds from the 90’s , notice the sweat shirt , now look at the new Escobar Season sweatshirt below. It’s almost a direct throwback replica , well done with much of the classic 90’s details included for that authentic look and feel of the original Karl Kani sweatshirt. Now let’s take a look at a few more of the peices from the collection.

The Escobar Season sweatsuit is probably one of if not my favorite part of the collection it has a classic colorblock look to it and made much like a wind suit from an era gone by , but that’s what makes it classic.

As I was saying a little earlier the collection also has two signature Escobar Season pull overs once again with logo heavy branding this most definitely captures the look and feel of a classic streetwear line from an era gone by as well.

The collection also includes two signature classically styled Karl Kani/HSTRY collaborative T-shirts , for that authentic Karl Kani look and feel.

Also another of my Personal favorite peices from the collection is this classic styled satin bomber jacket , there are more parts to the collection , but these are my top pics from the Escobar Season line. The collection can be shopped on http://www.hstryclothing.com . The collection is moderately priced on the low end from 70.00$ up to a more higher end of 250.00$ . So what do you think? HSTRY x Karl Kani ,

are you hear for it ? As always I LET YOU TELL IT . Well there it is , we have reached the end of another blog post. That’s it for now , I AM JMADDD STYLES , this has been New and Fashionably Noteworthy , until the next time IM GONE….!!!

New and Fashionably Noteworthy :

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 , New and Fashionably Noteworthy. So what is New and Fashionably Noteworthy? Well it’s a spin off from the JMADDD STYLES SEPTEMBER ISSUE , where I introduce you to a Fashionable Item that basically caught my eye enough to speak on it. So this will be a reoccurring blog segment on jmadddstyles.blog . The first subjects to kick off this new segment will be

The all new streetwear line from The Dipset , known as Dipset Couture and

New watch company MVMT , come join the movement. So now that I just broke that down for you , let’s get started.

DIPSET COUTURE :

As I said in a previous blog , The JMADDD STYLES SEPTEMBER ISSUE , this season 90s streetwear has made a major comeback , or the look and feel of 90s inspired streetwear is also making a major splash in the market as well. Members of the Hip Hop group The Diplomats or The Dip Set, has thrown their hats into the Streetwear Couture ring. That is streetwear with a higher quality and price point.

Dipset Couture will put you in the mindset of classic brands like Rocawear or Phat Pharm , but with a more modern fit and better cut.

Group members Jim Jones and Camron are the master minds behind the brand now being introduced on http://www.dipsetcouture.us . In my Fashionable Opinion , the brand has all the right streetwear elements to be a market success, especially if you are a fan of the group.

The line currently consists of jogging suits , T-shirts , and bomber jackets as well , in a variety of color ways .

Depending upon what your style esthetic is , or maybe .

The peices are easy to style and have enough of a look to almost take you anywhere on a given Friday night when you want to step out but don’t want to be too overdressed or underdressed just somewhere inbetween with an effortless look.

So what do you think ? Are you here for it ? As always I LET YOU TELL IT. Me personally Im feeling the look of the brand and The Dipset fashion movement.

Join the movement : MVMT Watches.

MVMT Watches , is a fairley new independently operated watch company. The slogan includes the meaning of the name Join The Movement (MVMT) . Their nitch is creating a quality watch that competes with the lux brands but make it affordable. MVMT Watches , come in both women’s and men’s styles.

The company doesn’t just specialize in watches but they also do a line of signature sunglasses that complement the watches.

I come across a lot of new items and I have seen many upstart watch companies, but I have to say I am highly impressed by this brand and their being able to create a luxury watch at a price point between 150.00$ / 350.00$ U.S. currency.

For the look and style this company offers , they by far are one of the best independent watch companies I’ve come across. You can find the watches on their website http://www.mvmtwatches.com , and that is truly New and Fashionably Noteworthy. Well there it is we have come to the end of another blog post , I hope you have enjoyed it. But as always, I AM JMADDD STYLES and that’s it for now, so until the next time IM GONE.

A Night In NYC : Fashion Week.

Hello everyone out there, as always I would it’s good to see you . By the way for those not too familiar with me , I AM JMADDD STYLES , and I would like to take this time out to welcome you to my latest blog post , A Night In NYC : Fashion Week. It’s about that time of year again or as I call it The Fashionable Time Of Year. When all the fashion trade shows happen and Fashion Week kicks off shortly after. This happens twice a year in NYC both September and February, im in NY a lot longer in February , for Fashion Week cause that’s just when it seems to be twice as exciting. But usually a I breeze through the city in September, taking a major show or two. Well lastnight I was breezing through New York and took in the now very popular

Style Fashion Week presentation , which has really grown in popularity a great deal over the years . At this particular presentation you can usually catch the new up and coming or underground designers that are beginning to gain fanfare. So right now im about to take you inside of last night’s Fashionable night in NYC.

Let’s start with my look for lastnight, incase you are wondering yes I draw style inspiration from my own styling ideas and techniques that I come up with when working on someone’s image. I created this look a few weeks ago .

Ofcourse I made a few changes , added in a loafer and a cream blazer but the feel of the look is still the same. But enough about me , let’s go inside the show for a few highlights.

As all the fashionable people enter the venue , you can feel the anticipation in the air for what we’re about to see come down the runway. Like or dislike it’s always good to see what’s on the come up.

The night starts with a performance from this Hot new Australian performer simply called Chloe , im not usually a big fan of musical performances during a fashion show unless it fits , and in this case it did.

Shortly after the runway presentations began the first series of shows were a mix of club wear from designer Emma Altman

Followed by designer Father Akki , that gave you an eclectic mix of styles ranging from a little bit of street and nightlife looks for a modern approach to fashion forward style , not necessarily my style or taste but I see how it fits in the fashion spectrum.

Then the last of the presentations of the night came from a new street wear designer that kind of gave me a skate kid feel by the name of Smock Me , where you see a return to bold logos and somewhat oversized tailoring with the clothes but also a mix of street/swimwear.

Such as this bold look combination of a leather jacket with a thigh high boots and a swimsuit for streetwear to completely set the look off , the designer also had an interesting line of logo laced hoodies as well that once again were a return to the 90s fashion feel .

As I have been saying for a while now , we are really seeing a return to previous style era’s this season . Designers are really reaching back and borrowing from the 80s/90s fashion scene.

Since im from that era I completely get it , and there are some looks that I will fit back into my own Personal rotation as well as recommend to others style esthetic, but for the most part im now really into well fitted clothing with expert tailoring to complement my style the best . I also recommend that to others because it stands the test of Fashionable Time. But like always , it comes and goes so quickly and before you know it the runway goes quite and all the fashionable people including myself begin to exit the venue. In the words of Jay-Z , GRAND OPENING , GRAND CLOSING , and so the night ends but before I breeze back out of the NY streets , I always have time to stop and pose for a few post show photo opps.

to end the night right before I hop back on the train to end the night. There it is , time flies when your having fun , but we have reached the end once again of yet another blog post I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been A Night In NYC : Fashion Week. So until the next time IM GONE. Be back here in February for more from Fashion Week in NYC.
