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.

Fashion Between The Panels: M:I-4: GHOST PROTOCOL.

Fashion Between The Panels: M:I-4:GHOST PROTOCOL.

Hello everyone out there , as always it’s good to see you , im back with another one. By the way for those not too familiar with myself , I AM JMADDD STYLES and you are about to be styled by me. Welcome to my latest blog/vlog post , Fashion Between The Panels:M:I-4:GHOST PROTOCOL. Today Im revisiting my ongoing blog/vlog series , Fashion Between The Panels , as I often like to say…Fashionable Inspiration is Everywhere , including in between the panels of your favorite movie. This isn’t the first time that I have used Mission Impossible as the back drop for one of my blog/vlogs to pull fashionably inspired looks from. If you scroll down the timeline here or on my YouTube channel you can see how I broke down the fashion from M:I-2. The reason why I decided to revisit this classic movie again to break down the fashion is because The Mission Impossible movies are always filled with great fashion and timeless looks , that are good for inspiring new looks or recapturing the looks that you saw on screen. So im picking up where I left off going between the movie panels and pulling out the fashion , styling new inspired looks that range from streetwear to formal clothing all based around the style of the main characters in this classic piece of film cinema. With that said , it’s now time to go between the panels……

New & Fashionably Noteworthy Collaborations: 2021/22 : Reebok x CARDI B.

New & Fashionably Noteworthy Collaborations:2021/2022: Reebok x CARDI B.

Hello everyone out there , as always it’s good to see you. I’m back with another one , by the way before we go any further, I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to take this time out to welcome you to my latest vlog/blog post. New & Fashionably Noteworthy Collaborations : 2021/2022 : Reebok x CARDI B. The fashionable collaborations that are the subject for today were all introduced in 2021 but are going to carry straight through to 2022. Starting with the latest Fashionable collabo from Reebok and CARDI B. this is CARDI’s second collection with Reebok and I have to say right off the jump that this new collection is truly a major step up from the first collection. The first effort was good for the first time that CARDI had ever worked with Reebok and it sold very well as could be expected given the apparent popularity she has. But I must say that this second collaborative effort towers in comparison to the first. Now this is actually not a new drop , so I guess you could actually say that i’m late to the party so to speak, when it comes to speaking on this latest collection. Seeing as how it was actually introduced in August 2021, but I guess you could say that it flew below my fashionable radar. But going back and taking another look at it, I was so impressed by the sneakers that dropped and the actual collection , that I wanted to speak on it to kick off my vlog/blog series for 2022. The collection is priced fair to moderate ranging from as low as 65$ to upwards of 110$ and from what I can see well worth it.

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.
