Danish brand Libertine Libertine just dropped their Spring/Summer 2013 women’s collection. The whole collection is inspired by animals, seen literally as a logo on sweatshirts, and interpreted through the bold, animalistic patterns. Sharp cuts, a pastel dominated color palette and tailoring Libertine Libertine are known for have been partnered with an urban, sportswear vibe that bring the collection firmly into summer. Available now at CONCRETE.

“Memento Mori: Year Of The Snake”

Maharishi launch Spring Summer 13 this month, celebrating The Chinese Year of the Snake. The collection is entitled Memento Mori, and many aspects of the collection remind us of the inevitability of death.Two red dots, representing the snake’s bite, appear on t-shirt graphics and subtly within details from bar tacks and button holes to the colouring of maharishi’s 3 circular eyelet branding.

Seasonally maharishi offer a new disruptive pattern, this time its a version of the house camo pattern. Entitled DPM: Bonsai Python, the pattern is available in woodland and night colourways. The usual bonsai trees growing from heavenly clouds and other elements are infilled with a snakeskin texture look. Although in nature there are not typically any woodland patterned snakes, maharishi take this artistic license to reinforce the theory that camouflage was only developed thanks to the research of Abbot Thayer and other natural historians and the development of Picasso’s Cubism, which allowed artists to create more abstract renditions of nature.

Available now at CONCRETE.

Nike continues to work with Jun Takahashi and Undercover on their collaborative Gyakusou running collection. Innovation, technology and design meet in this special partnership, that we have fallen in love with the very first season it started a couple of years ago. Today we can show you the new Spring/Summer 2013 Collection.

“In Rio de Janeiro, where summer temperatures exceed 104 degrees, Gyakusou runners battle the heat as they fly along the Brazilian city’s colorful streets, through its verdant tropical parks, and past legendary landmarks and lagoons. Uniting this transcendent state of concentration and contemplation with amplifying adrenaline, they achieve a state of Zen, enabled by their weather-combative equipment.

A signature fusion of function and utility, the Nike x Undercover Gyakusou S/S 2013 collection infuses Jun Takahashi’s less but better design philosophy with the latest Nike innovations to present a technologically advanced line. Designed specifically to address the cooling requirements of summer runners in Brazil and worldwide, it employs unlined, breathable, and supremely lightweight materials from head to toe, providing avid athletes with the ability to pursue their passion despite sweltering conditions. The collection’s trademark color palette speaks to Takahashi’s urban-rural accord with subtle city tones and natural hues, which are popped this season by bright Mesa orange, lush Victory green, and fuchsia Sangria pink, reflecting the renowned vibrancy of Rio landscapes.”

The new Nike x Undercover Gyakusou Spring/Summer 2013 Collection launches at CONCRETE March 2nd, 2013.
