How to Rock Your BIRKENSTOCK’s: Pt.3.

How to Rock Your BIRKENSTOCK’s:Pt.3.

Hello everyone out there , as always it’s good to see you , I’m back with another one. By the way for those not to familiar with myself , I AM JMADDD STYLES and you are currently being styled by me. Today I return with the third installment of my How to Rock Your BIRKENSTOCK’s series. If you have not seen parts 1&2 be sure to take a quick scroll down, so you can get caught up. The reason that I decided to do a part 3 to this series is because of what I often see other fashion influencers saying about these classic sandals. I have often herd the critique that these sandals aren’t flattering or don’t work well with various different looks. When that is far from the truth , you just have to know how to style this classic brand and how these sandals are supposed to look when you style them correctly. If you are not sure how ,then that is what people like myself are here for. In actuality any item can be unflattering or hard to style , if you don’t have the fashionable eye to do so , but in my opinion the BIRKENSTOCK sandal is an excellent summer time alternative to the usual footwear choices. After all if you can wear YEEZY FOAM RUNNERS or CROCS, then you definitely should have no problem Rocking your BIRKENSTOCK’s. Now let’s take a look at How to Rock Your BIRKENSTOCK’s.

Dressing Up Your Sp/Su Style: Pt. 6: Streetwear.

Dressing Up Your Sp/Su Style:Pt.6: Streetwear.

Hello everyone out there as always it’s good to see you , I’m back with another one. By the way for those that are not to familiar with myself , I AM JMADDD STYLES and you are about to be styled by me. For part 6 of my Dressing Up Your Sp/Su Style series I wanted to get into a little bit of streetwear. Streetwear always holds a special place in fashion to me , why you may ask? Well that’s where I got my start at, for starters , aside from that it’s always interesting to see the innovation that comes with streetwear and how over the years the look of streetwear has changed from where it started. Even in some cases has entered the realm of high end fashion. For today’s vlog/blog I decided to cover three brands , First up a brand that still remains to be a little on the low key side , yet at the same time continues to impress me more and more each season. The brand that I’m speaking of is PAPER PLANES , this brand encompasses all the elements of a classic streetwear brand with a new school approach and appeal still keeping it modern and fresh , this is most definitely a brand to keep your eye on just to see it progress more and more. Then from there I wanted to jump back into my favorite Japanese fashion brand of streetwear , NEEDLES , this brand is one of those that truly takes on the meaning of the ever so popular phrase , IF YOU KNOW , YOU KNOW. The NEEDLES brand as always is very impressive for your Sp/Su season , as the look of this brand also continues to improve with each season that I have seen and basically I’m a little late to the party with this one. But I got to say from the first time that I saw it , I was impressed and still continue to be impressed right now. Then last I jump into the latest drop from YZY or YEEZY x GAP powered by BALENCIAGA , This latest offering from YZY has not changed very much , in fact out of all the brands that I have covered for today’s vlog/blog this is my least favorite , it doesn’t show much change or progress and the color pallet is just plain drab and uninspiring. I also think this brand needs a branding flip , basically the YZY LOGO needs to be the more noticeable logo with the GAP logo being smaller playing more to the back , BUT AS ALWAY’s…I LET YOU TELL IT.

The JMADDD STYLES Fall Fashion Spectacular: Pt 4: PAPER PLANES.

Hello everyone out there , as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES and you are about to be styled by me. Welcome to my latest blog post, today we revisit the brand simply known as PAPER PLANES, which happens to be the brain child of JAY-Z and his right hand man Emory Jones. PAPER PLANES is one of those brands that completely flew under the radar, as you started seeing it in small doses on various personalities on tv or in photos. Even the though the logo is pretty simplistic , there was something about it that intrigued me enough to notice it and and want to know what it was and stood for. Despite the fact that the brand maintains being relatively low key and still on the underground side , it has achieved a measure if fashionable success. I mean how could it miss seeing who it was started by, just take the right placement at the right time. Well the brand is back for the fall season with a pretty noteworthy collection, consisting of track suits , joggers, various hoodies , and jackets, rounding out the collection T-shirts, and an assortment of hats and other accessories, not to mention that they also put out out a collection of cashmere sweat suits. Basically PAPER PLANES has the entire blue print for a successful street/lux brand. But I can show you even better than I can tell you, so it’s now time for a look at my latest fashionable production, be sure to stay until the end for some additional fashionable bonus content.

New & Fashionably Noteworthy: PAPER PLANES…

New & Fashionably Noteworthy: PAPER PLANES…

All looks in this video have been styled and arranged by JMADDD STYLES.

Hello everyone out there as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES, and this is New & Fashionably Noteworthy: PAPER PLANES , Today we are going to jump into a fashionable subject that is near and dear to me , and that is streetwear. Reason being it’s where I got my start, so whenever I come across a brand that fits that aesthetic, that has all the right fashionable elements to fit a good streetwear or lifestyle brand then I have to bring it to you and talk about it. I started seeing the PAPER PLANES logo a little while back wasn’t sure what it was , but it peeked my interest when I first saw it on Charlamagne of The Breakfast Club. Then I started to take notice of the hats being worn by JAY-Z himself, so then upon further research I discovered that it was in fact a new brand that was started by both JAY-Z and his right hand man Emory Jones. As I began to look at the website www.paperplane.shop , I liked what I was seeing , this clothing line or Streetwear/Lifestyle brand , truly did have all the characteristics of a true streetwear brand , not to sound repetitive. Not to mention the fact that it has a good price point that you won’t mind spending the money for. In the above video I am styling looks from this new collection and also inspiring you to continue to enhance your own personal style along the way, here is an example of what you will see or have seen if you already viewed today’s fashionable production.

This is truly one of those brands that has flown below the fashionable radar , which is a surprise considering who is behind putting the brand out , but perhaps that was the way it was intended to be so as not to over saturate the market with the product, causing the brand to catch fire to fast and burn out quickly, only time will tell. But for now it looks like IVY PARK isn’t the only clothing brand coming from the Carter household.

Well there it is , looks like we have once again reached the end of yet another blog post. As always I hope you have enjoyed reading it and viewing it as much as I have enjoyed presenting it. This has been New & Fashionably Noteworthy: PAPER PLANES, and I AM JMADDD STYLES. That’s it for now, so until the next time…IM GONE…!!!. All the looks in this video and blog post can be shopped at www.farfetch.com , www.mrporter.com and www.paper plane.shop.

The staying power of a streetwear brand: LRG : Lifted Research Group.

The staying power of a streetwear brand: LRG : Lifted Research Group.

Hello everyone out there, as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES , and this is my latest blog post : The staying power of a streetwear brand: LRG ( Lifted Research Group ) . Today I am talking about something that is near and dear to me in the world of fashion , what is that you may ask ? STREETWEAR , why streetwear? Well it’s because that’s where I got my start in the industry, right about the time when streetwear was on the rise and everyone wanted a piece of it. When I came in Fubu was starting to blow up major , and many other brands with it such as Karl Kani and Maurice Malone. Las Vegas was the place to be to display your brand and the competition was thick. Everyone seemed to be throwing their hat into the streetwear fashion ring, including myself. But that’s another story for another blog post. When it comes to a streetwear brand, not many stand the test of time or have a very long run , for a number of reasons from funding to bad management to not having the right formula for longevity. So when a brand comes along that does stand the test of time, that brand has what I call staying power and LRG has demonstrated over the years that it had what it took to be one of those brands that could stand the test of fashionable time , due to it’s versatility and ability to change with the times and the trends without skipping a fashionable beat.

This is Jonas Bevacqua , the cofounder and original designer of the LRG brand , before passing away in 2011. I know each time that I had ever seen or ran into him at an event or fashion convention, he showed that he lived the brand, he was as much of brand within himself as the actual clothing, which is what helped sell the brand and caused everyone else to want to have a piece of the brand or the lifestyle synonymous with the brand. The fact that the brand still continues to work and sell after his death is proof that he did a good job of selling the LRG style and Lifestyle. The brand did something that most brands in the streetwear genre had not accomplished , that was bring together two different worlds. A combination of Skate Kid and streetwear style all under one stylish roof. However I can show you better than I can tell you. Let’s take a look at The Lifted Research Group. ( All looks in the film below are styled and arranged by JMADDD STYLES.)

Well there it is, we have just reached the end of yet another blog post, and I’m pretty sure after looking at the above presentation you can see how the brand has managed to stand the fashionable test of time and still be going strong with a loyal fan and customer base that has kept it going since it’s start in 1999 , and that’s a long time to last in the streetwear game. I AM JMADDD STYLES , and this has been The staying power of a streetwear brand: LRG : Lifted Research Group. That’s it for now, so until the next time…IM GONE…!!!.
