The Fashion follow up : MCM

The Fashion follow up : MCM

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 Fashion follow up : MCM . For those of you out there , not to familiar with this blog , The Fashion follow up , is when I take a designer or brand that I spoke on or wrote about previously and revisit the brand or designer to see what’s happening with them now. To give you another look at how to style and ware their clothing , also to show if there has been any major changes with the company or the look of the clothing being put out for that season. The MCM brand is hands down one of my favorite Lux brands to talk about , personally ware and to show you how to style for your own personal look and style aesthetic. Well it’s been well over two years or so since I last spoke on this brand and the collaboration that they did with PUMA. Since I last spoke on the brand there has definitely been some changes to the company.

Fashion Stylist Misa Hylton Brim , was brought in as Global Creative Partner of the brand , where she is able to bring her own touch and style to MCM. With her own branded looks called The Remix or The Remix Shop by Misa Hylton. The brand has also help promote a new documentary called The Remix : Hip Hop x Fashion.

Where they showcase the contributions that Misa Hylton along with a few others , have made to fashion in regards to Hip Hop and music in general. Admittedly enough this major move in fashion slipped below my fashionable radar for a little while. But the documentary is very impressive and details how streetwear changed the face of fashion so much that even larger luxury brands such as Gucci and MCM had to take notice via the contributions of Dapper Dan as well as Misa Hylton Brim. Misa Hylton is to MCM almost what Dapper Dan is to Gucci. Much like the way Dapper Dan has his own special and unique branded looks for Gucci , the same goes for Misa Hylton with MCM. She has even used some of her looks on the likes of Beyoncé and Marry J. Bilge.

But what about the clothes ? I’m sure you are asking, how does the new line from MCM and Misa Hylton for MCM look ? Well I can show you better than I can tell you, but isn’t that usually the case ? So now let’s take a look at my latest fashionable production, The Fashion follow up: MCM.

All looks are styled and arranged by JMADDD STYLES.

Well there it is , it looks like we have reached the end of yet another blog blog post. So what do you think of the current MCM line and looks ? As always , I LET YOU TELL IT. This has been The Fashion follow up : MCM , and I AM JMADDD STYLES. I hope you have enjoyed reading this blog post as much as I enjoyed presenting it. That’s it for now , so until the next time…IM GONE…!!!

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. Fashion between the panels: PAID IN FULL. For this latest installment of Fashion between the panels, I’m breaking down the fashion and pulling out new inspired looks, from between the panels of this classic tale of the streets. At this time period, the style , the fashion, was full of swagger and what would be the beginning of high end style mixed with street style , or street fashion. For this particular blog post , it took a little more work and imagination to complete the newly inspired looks from this movie , because a lot of the picture frames , didn’t give you a full look at the fashion. But with a little fashionable inspiration and imagination, I pulled together the looks that you are about see. You will also notice the timelessness of these looks from this fashionable era gone by , as a lot of the styles are back in one form or another. From the early looks of Dapper Dan , all the way to the looks of Dapper Dan right now. From the high end looks of Italian streetwear like Sergio Tacchini and Fila of yesterday, all the way to the return of these brands right now. But I could show you better than I can tell you. So without any further or do , here is my all new fashionable production, inspired by the fashion and swagger of PAID IN FULL.

All looks are styled and arranged by JMADDD STYLES.

As you have just seen the fashion in this movie , captured a whole entire lifestyle, a feel of both luxury and street. The look of unapologetically being flashy yet cool and subtle at the same time. But as always I LET YOU TELL IT.

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.

New & Fashionably noteworthy collaborations: YEEZY x GAP.

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.
