New & Fashionably noteworthy collaborations: YEEZY x GAP.

Hello everyone 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 & Fashionably noteworthy collaborations: YEEZY x GAP. If you are familiar with this blog , then you know as I have often said , There is nothing I like better than a good fashionable collaboration. The fashionable collaboration that I am speaking of today is one that seemed like it was a long time coming. This new collaboration in question is Kanye West’s YEEZY brand and GAP coming together to form YZY , the new more affordable YEEZY collection set to be released in 2021. This new partnership is set to be for a ten year deal , the collection will consist of elevated men’s, women’s and children’s pieces. The collection will not have any shoes or sneakers included, and along with West’s creative direction, the new head designer of the collection will be the Nigerian-British designer, Mowalola Ogunlesi. The fairly new designer has a garnered a cult following from her designs over the past few years. But really gained notability once Naomi Campbell was spotted wearing one of her designs last year at a London Fashion Week event . There is a lot of excitement being generated around this new upcoming collection, as West’s collaboration with Adidas has done extremely well in addition to his YEEZY fashion label which is now in it’s eighth season. I have to say that I myself am looking forward to seeing this new collaborative effort hit stores and online myself but until that I guess we will just have to hurry up and wait. But here is a look at some of the previous season’s from the YEEZY collection and his Adidas collaboration.

The Luxury of Shinola & The practicality of MVMT.

The Luxury of Shinola & The Practicality of MVMT.

Hello everyone 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. The Luxury of Shinola & The practicality of MVMT. Today I’m talking men’s accessories, watches in particular , right now there are two watch companies that are really on my radar. The first being Shinola of Detroit , which has taken simplicity combined it with luxury and came out with a great product. A line of watches that are not over done , but scream quite style with intricate details. Then there is the other watch company that has been on my accessories radar for some time now , MVMT , whose whole niche is giving you luxury without the price tag . Basically the two watch companies share a lot of similarities the thing that separates them is the price tag and the other items that the companies make to compliment the watches, creating a whole lifestyle brand and feel. So the real question is does Shinola or MVMT fit your personal style better. But before you answer that let’s take a look at both brands starting with….

The Shinola watch brand , I first discovered this brand of watches on the Mr. Porter website , www.mrporter.com , I was putting together new menswear looks and came across these watches , looking for men’s accessories to complete the looks that I was putting together. The simple yet stylish detail really stood out to me. Jay Z said it best when he said I got the right watch , not the bright watch , and that statement fit the look of these watches perfectly.

But the price tag also caught my eye , as the price point for these watches floats between 300.00$ not so bad up to the range of 1,495.00$ . I am a firm believer in paying for a good luxury item , I think of it as an investment piece, even if the only value of the item is the fact that I personally like the brand. This company doesn’t just do watches to give a complete picture to their lifestyle brand , they make complimenting accessories. Now here is a look at some more of the watch styles Shinola offers.

As I was saying a little earlier, they also offer complimenting accessories to give a complete picture this lifestyle brand. Shinola doesn’t just make watches , they specialize in leather goods as well and a small line of jewelry also. Let’s have a look.

This is a look at some of the various accessories that Shinola makes around their line of watches creating a complete lifestyle idea. But notice they took it a step further by having even their own brand of bikes.

That’s an unexpected touch that most definitely stands out and makes you want to purchase their core item , the watches.

Ok that was the first brand that is on my men’s accessories radar , next let’s have a look at the brand that I have been tracking for some time now , MVMT.

Off the break you will notice a lot of similarities in the styling of these two watch brands. However the main difference that you will notice, is in the price point. Where as Shinola ,gives you this look or style of watch at a much higher price , MVMT has made it’s name by giving you a luxury style watch but for much less. The average price of an MVMT watch ranges from 95.00$ up to 300.00$ . A huge price difference with basically the same look. Now let’s take a look at some of the styles that MVMT has to offer.

You can clearly see the similarities between the two brands , the styling is almost identical, making both brands worth while investing in for at least one piece. The main separation is the price point. MVMT also has it’s own line of complimenting accessories as well , jewelry and eye ware . Let’s have a look.

MVMT ‘s product line isn’t is not as extensive as Shinola they are doing designer eye ware and jewelry pieces that go with the watches, they have yet to get into the leather goods or go as far having their own signature bike. But give it a little time and I’m almost certain MVMT will expand even further and find a way to do so at a better price point.

Well there it is , we have just reached the end of yet another blog post. I hope you have enjoyed reading it , as much as I enjoyed presenting it. Are you more Shinola Watches style , or MVMT Watches style ? As always I LET YOU TELL IT . To shop these looks go to www.shinola.com & www.mvmtwatches.com .

Fashion between the panels: Mission Impossible 2.

All looks are styled and arranged by JMADDD STYLES.

Hello everyone out there as always it’s good to see you . I AM JMADDD STYLES , and I would like to take this time out as always to welcome you to my latest blog post. The latest installment in the ongoing series of Fashion between the panels. Fashion between the panels: Mission Impossible 2 . I’m taking you back between the panels of another film classic and pulling out the fashion , to style new inspired looks that are based around this spy thriller. You may be asking , why Mission Impossible 2 out of any of the movies in this franchise ? Well that’s easy , out of any of the movies this one was the most stylishly done. The movie was and is as visually cool as it is fashionable. Easily making it a great backdrop for fashionable inspiration to build new looks from to help you improve your fashionable image. Also more than likely I will return with another Fashion between the panels for another part of The Mission Impossible series. So with that said , let’s get started. By the way should you choose to except this fashionable mission , this blog will self destruct.

All looks are styled and arranged by JMADDD STYLES.

This first look that you are look at is inspired from the look that Tom Cruise ( Ethan Hunt ) wore when he was rock climbing in the opening sequence of the movie. The look is a relaxed yet stylish take on an outdoors sportswear style. From the cargo pants to the Shinola sports watch , the look spells adventurous style. Kept simple with a basic tank top , Nike cross trainers , cargo pants and the look is finished with a pair of sports shades , to authenticate the whole look.

For the next inspired look from this movie, it comes from when Thandie Newton ( Nya ) steps on screen . This look is a stylish take on a sexy evening wear party look , the look is done in form fitting lace.

To accent this look I went with a clutch that is also trimmed in lace , to offset the dress. Then to finish the look off I went with the Tory Burch black and gold bracelet , a high heeled opened toe sandal and finished the look off with a subtle gold necklace for a look like this , it’s always good to keep the jewelry simple and subtle. In this movie ( Thandie Newton / Nya , had a few rememberable looks both dressy and casual. Let’s take a look at a few more.

For the next look , it’s a classic summer sundress in white with laser cut out details. As I often say , white looks really good on women especially women of a certain skin tone because it highlights the skin tone. But little known fact that white can look good on pretty much everybody as long as it is styled correctly. In this case the look is highlighted with once again another high heeled sandal done in pink to highlight the scarf and the purse. To finish the look off one again kept the jewelry simple with a white watch.

For this look , it’s a true summer casual look , simple yet with a touch of summer sheek, a good quality form fitting T-shirt , with dark denim. But as always the fashion is in the details , for such a simple look , you can you use more noteworthy accessories. In this case a long silver chain , a plaid trimmed wedge sandal and to top the look off a designer logo belt. This is a look that everyone can pull off and should be in your closet ready to go.

Next let’s take a look at Sean Ambrose ( Dougray Scott ) this character was usually dressed in stylish yet dark clothing to go along with the persona of the character.

For this look I had to make a few minor changes to make the look more up to date . In the movie the look was all black, to capture the look and make it look more now, I went with a blue indigo dark rinse denim blazer and jeans. To set the look off gave it a patterned dress shirt and solid blue tie. To finish the look a designer belt that will show up good against the dark denim. Creating a very stylish dressy casual look or even better a business casual look.

Even with this look it’s still being done in dark colors , although a navy blue suit is always one of my personal favorite go too’s . For this look I had to make a minor change also. I’m not often a fan of dark dress shirts especially black. Sometimes it can work , but up against a navy blue suit a black dress shirt just gets lost no matter how we’ll it’s made. In the original look the actor wore a black shirt with this look. I had to flip it to a white shirt with a high spread collar so the look would look great with or without a tie. Then highlighted the look with a brown dress boot and matching belt.

Next let’s get into Luthers ( Ving Rhames ) style. In all of these movies the Luther character was always very stylish , and in this movie had a classic line to show he was fashion savvy. ( That Punk punk put a hole in my Versace) .

For this look once again creating a dressy casual look , used a tailored black dress trouser topped off with a black waistcoat. To highlight the look a red T-shirt then a designer belt with gold trim . Finishing the look with a dress boot, this look can really go along way.

For this look , the main piece is the black satin bomber jacket, then the look is built out from there. Keeping with the famous line , I went with a Versace T-shirt and belt as the center pieces of the look. Then finished the look with a cargo pant and casual boot.

All looks are styled and arranged by JMADDD STYLES.

To capture this look , as I mentioned a little earlier, I never usually go with a black dress shirt. But for this look it works reasonably well with out getting lost in the actual outfit. Then kept the look simple with a dress boot and black belt. This is one of those suit looks that would jump off better without a tie and just a open button collar.

Now let’s get back to our main character. Ethan Hunt , in all of the Mission Impossible movies, The Ethan Hunt character is always fashionably cool , but especially in part 2 , now let’s take a look.

This look is a very stylish take on a recon look, but to make this everyday stylish , I went with a wingtip boot with a rugged sole to give a casual vibe, from there the look kept in all black to keep the look close to the original and for the recon feel. The look is complete with a casual crew neck a black leather back pack and a mat black belt. In the above look instead of a back pack I went with a fashionable leather back harness , in both looks the black cargoes are a must have to complete the look.

In this film Tom Cruise had so many fashionably cool looks , that would translate well into wearable image enhancing fashion.

Who could forget this scene, this whole scene is so visually cool , that it’s probably one of the most remembered in all the franchise. But not only was the scene visually cool , but it was equally cool from a fashionable standpoint. The look is done in what I call triple black , from the blazer all the way down to the shoes. For the jeans in this look just a basic dark rinse black without any wholes. Creating a look that will definitely stay Instyle for many years to come.

This last look is just a variation from the look that is above this. This is what the look would look like minus the leather jacket and adding in a track sneaker, creating another variation of the recon look.

Well there it is, we have just reached the end of yet another blog post, these looks can be shopped from the following websites. www.tomford.com , www.farfetch.com , www.mrporter.com & www.shopstyle.com .
