Cold Weather Fashion: PRADA

Cold Weather Fashion:PRADA

Hello everyone out there, as always it’s good to see you , I’m back with another one. By the way I AM JMADDD STYLES , for those that are not to familiar with myself. Cold weather has fashion has been the subject or backdrop for my last two blog/vlog’s if you have not had the chance to give those a read , then by all means scroll down take a look then you will be all caught up and ready to begin this third installment of the Cold Weather Fashion series. The last two subjects were CANADA GOOSE & MONCLER , today we jump into PRADA. In my last presentation I gave you a look at how , high end brand Louis Vuitton is currently working on a collaboration with pro snowboarder Shaun White , for a line of luxury signature luggage. Leading me to believe that it would be the first collaboration of it’s kind between such a high end brand and the snowboarding community, causing LV to be the first high end brand to enter into that particular realm but is that the case? Well upon looking at the 2022 Olympic games , I discovered that the answer to that question is no , LV wouldn’t be the first high end brand to do a collab with a snowboarding athlete. As I was looking at the women’s halfpipe competition , I caught site at what would look like one of the ladies wielding what seemed to be a PRADA snowboard , at first I was thinking maybe I didn’t see it but upon further review and investigation I found that PRADA already had a steak in the snowboarding and skiing game. The athlete that I had seen was Julia Marino whom along with Gus Kenworthy were the face of the PRADA LINEA ROSSA Fall 2021 Collection, which was released close to the end of 2021. Finding this out is what prompted me to continue this ongoing Cold Weather Fashion series , and after looking at the collection I was and I am completely impressed with what this collection has to offer.

Cold Weather Fashion: CANADA GOOSE.

Cold Weather Fashion:CANADA GOOSE.

Hello everyone out there , as always it’s good to see you…im back with another one. I would like to take this time out to welcome you to my latest blog/vlog:Cold Weather Fashion:CANADA GOOSE. By the way , for those that are not to familiar with myself, I AM JMADDD STYLES. In my last blog/vlog , (The Fashion Follow Up:MONCLER) I mentioned CANADA GOOSE as a cheaper alternative to MONCLER , if you didn’t wish to pay the over the top overly expensive price of MONCLER. However that was me speaking not being to familiar with the CANADA GOOSE brand , basically I was a little late to the party when it came to knowing about the quality that is CANADA GOOSE. After taking a closer look at the brand online , then observing how many people on the street are wearing a CANADA GOOSE coat or hat as opposed to MONCLER , I then realized , that this is not a cheaper alternative but a fashionably competitive alternative instead. The price point for CANADA GOOSE , may well come in a little cheaper , but not cheap enough to be considered a cheaper alternative. The price point falls in the range from 125.00$ to upwards of 2,295.00$ , competitively priced with the likes of the MONCLER brand and putting it right on par with the brand. Also after taking a closer look at what CANADA GOOSE has to offer , I have to admit that i’m rather impressed with the CANADA GOOSE brand , so far as Cold Weather Fashion goes. But upon further review , i’m sure you will be impressed too.

Collaboration GUCCI: Fashion Overkill or Good Marketing?

Collaboration GUCCI: Fashion Overkill or Good Marketing ?

Hello everyone out there as always it’s good to see you , i’m back with another one. Welcome to my latest blog/vlog post , by the way for those that are not to familiar with myself , I AM JMADDD STYLES and you are currently being styled by me. If you are familiar with this blog/vlog , then you know there is nothing I like more than a good fashionable collaboration. But is it possible that sometimes a good fashionable collab can be fashion overkill? When it comes to two fashion giants like Balenciaga and Gucci , it’s almost unlikely that you would see two brands of this caliber come together to form one cohesive brand. However when it comes to the idea of if this is fashion overkill or just good marketing , the answer would probably be surprising. The answer in short is, that it’s both, how so you maybe asking? When it comes to these two major brands neither takes a back seat to the other when it comes to this collaboration , so when you look at the clothing or the accessories , both logos or brand names are featured prominently on each garment , which can be a little on the overwhelming side. Because usually when it comes to these collaborations one brand is usually displayed more boldly than the other, kind of the way it’s done on the Fendi/SKIMS collaboration or even on the GUCCI x The NORTH FACE collab. But overall it may well feel like fashion overkill , but at the same time it’s just plain good marketing , because most true fans of high end fashion including myself have a love for both GUCCI and BALENCIAGA or The NORTH FACE and GUCCI. Basically meaning it just works even if it is fashion overkill. Either way you look at it , 2021 was a year of some major fashionable collaborations , and it’s looking like 2022 is shaping up to be the exact same.

The Revival of a Street Luxury Brand: Sean John.

The Revival of a Street Luxury Brand: Sean John.

Hello everyone out there, as always it’s good to see you. I’m back with another one , and this time im speaking on a brand that made a major impact on the fashion world from the time it was introduced. Welcome to The Revival of a Street Luxury Brand: Sean John. From day one when I first saw Sean John introduced in Vegas at The Magic Show Fashion Convention, I was a major fan. But what made this brand such a success was the image of the lifestyle being sold with it, and no one was better at selling you a luxury lifestyle ,a complete image than it’s owner Sean Puffy Combs. From music to music videos all the way up to fashion , he knew how to sell you a complete lifestyle and image. The same way he sold you the image of his artist on Bad Boy Record’s , is basically the same formula he would later use to sell you the idea of a street luxury brand , and it worked. It worked so well that the brand amassed millions in a short period of time and gained the attention of the CFDA, naming Sean Puffy Combs menswear designer of the year in 2004. From there the brand began to branch out into womenswear , hit the runways of New York Fashion Week and the brand was licensed to make a fragrance , eyewear , shoes and jumped into the men’s suiting and dress clothing lane successfully. But like any brand that comes out swinging, there comes a level off period , where the brand looses popularity. In this case when Sean Combs sold off a majority stake in the company to Global Brands Group. The problem with making a move like that , the company that takes over dose not have the same vision or passion for the brand, so the brand begins to loose it’s way. But that’s about to turn itself around, or so it possibly seems.

With Combs buying the company back out of bankruptcy for 7.5 million$ , the question is does Sean Puffy Combs still have what it takes to revive and breath new life into this once power house street luxury brand ? Well that’s what we will have to watch out for and see. Hopefully you watched the video all the way through for the extra added bonus content.

Styling Japanese Fashion Brands: Pt6: BEAMS.

Styling Japanese Fashion Brands:Pt6:BEAMS.

Hello everyone out there, as always it’s good to see you. I’m back with another one, by the way I AM JMADDD STYLES, and you are about to be styled by me. Welcome to my latest vlog/blog post Styling Japanese Fashion Brands: Pt6: BEAMS. Today I’m picking back up ,where I left off a few months ago speaking on and showing you how to style various Japanese fashion brands and bring awareness to these brands that a lot are not familiar with unless you are a true fashion brand enthusiast , that is well versed in various brands from all over. IF you have not had the chance to see parts 1-5 , be sure to give a quick scroll down so you can get caught up, or take a look at my YouTube channel where you can see all five videos. Today im talking BEAMS , this Japanese fashion brand is probably one of the most cohesive that I have seen in a very long time . It’s almost as though each designed piece was produced with the last piece in mind before it. This brand has all the needed essentials that make for a complete clothing line, nothing to outlandish or non relatable but everything that can be used to build an essential wardrobe that almost everyone can wear. By my observation this line gives you the best quality of goods when it comes to materials, for the given price point which falls under the bracket of moderate , so you won’t have to break the bank to own a piece of this international brand. Basically out of all the Japanese Fashion brands that I have covered this one is by far my personal favorite next to NEEDLES. But as always , I can show you better than I can tell you.
