This is Part "Duex" of our two part blog on our SS16 buying trip to Paris. To start at part one, click here.
Ok, so part two of our Paris SS16 buy trip starts off on a shitty day for me. I got an untimely migraine...like the real deal, like slamming my head against the wall to get rid of the pain, type shit. I ended up getting some good french meds and I was able to rally and meet up with the fellas half way thru....
The Junya shows always have great music. So much so that they even give you printouts of the playlist...I was really feeling these Brian Eno tracks.....
Ghetto style way of seeing how a hat looks when you are doing the buy alone...not bad!!!!
As you can see Rickey must have had similar issues in getting up as me...he didn't even have time to take his PJ's off???
Junya was really nice...lots of vibrant colors....This was a scarf we really "likded".
Next up Homme Plus. This collection was also actually really good this season. This can be tough to buy for us at times. We are always trying to offer some next level shit and Homme Plus is always on some really next level shit...Sometimes it's too many levels beyond what our customer is ready for. But we always want to push the envelope of where shit can go.
This "OB" (over buttoned) Shirt vest combo was quite ill. (Check your boy Vic in the back, looking for snacks....).
yes...that's me rocking the birks and socks....you can't take the Canadian out the Jungle?
Quick move to Acne...this was the only photo I took there...kinda weird...yeah. But I like weird.
Next up, on our way to the Raf showroom we had to circumnavigate the gay pride parade...craze!
Raf en em, do it right...all the way down to the furniture. Shit is real.
Showroom is pretty impressive too. The biggest, most minimalist loft space. Very clean.
A major theme for the show was these hood/shroud shirts. Really dope. We got em!
Ok...ok...be honest...who wore it best? Maybe I should be modeling for Raf?
Loved this vintage inspired nerd/not nerd brown tweed suit.
This here was the best look of the show. Best believe we ordered this shit. Baggy pants and all....YEAH!
I am fully committed to this look even the funny styles tied knot on the top...!
Another great thing about Raf...they give you a free shuttle to your next appointment. Thanks Raf!
Next up for us was the T Breezy show. Um, in a word....
On the subway on our way to OAMC...is this a Jazz festival or a Shrooms festival? Either way...I wanna be there.
Our last appointment of the season was OAMC. I know I might be a bit biased, cause well the line is designed by my best friend and early on I was helping with the line. But you have to take my word for it. This seasons collection was excellent. Best collection we saw in Paris this season. For real. Check some selections from the SS16 look book here:
My favorite piece hands down is this Perforated suit. So HAM!
Who else gets the designer to model the shit for em...huh?
Rickey, feeling the Safari tiger stripe!
I am really liking these runners they did. So dope.
well that's it for this season. Stay tuned for our next adventures...
