Jeremy Scott’s design philosophy has undoubtedly rattled a few feathers on the way.

Whether you love it or hate it, Scott has brought a lot of attention on himself and adidas Originals as we see a follow-up lookbook into this season’s collection. The action-packed shoot offers another angle to a series of images posted a few days ago.

Japanese label SASQUATCHfabrix presents their new Fall/Winter 2011 “MODERN NINJA” collection lookbook. This season’s collection has been inspired by “the bohemian and ideas to continue to evolve the design of increasingly high-tech sneakers”. An old school style is given to the “contemporary modern ninja” and “a sense of speed and flexibility from their association (MODERN NINJA) to represent”. A mix of more colorful and complex layered designs sit alongside the black tones in certain pieces, as the brand continue to strive in their creative prowess working both wearable and avant-garde angles.
Bedwin & The Heartbreakers sustains their position as one of our top Japanese apparel exporters with a powerful FW11 outerwear line up. The yellow duffle coat and vibrant green camo smock draw the eyes while tweed, wool, leather and nylon jackets fill the quota for high quality understated cold-weather gear. The bright blue varsity and red parka are also stand outs. Drops are scheduled for August to November 2011.

It was said director Francis Ford Coppola provided 2 different hotel accommodations for the cast ofThe Outsiders, all in an effort to create an underlined animosity in the film, a fictionalized tale of rival teen gangs by author S. E. Hinton. For Fall 2011, Crooks & Castles will revisit those combative instincts once again. Aptly named “Rivals”, the season’s theme is a derivative of the acrimony between Socs and Greasers, the 2 adversaries from the novel. Its less about violence in the case ofCrooks & Castles, however. Rather, its about the difference of mindsets, where ideas and opinions clash, often lead to surprising results as demonstrated in the collection’s mix of street, militarism, and biker aesthetics. The Crooks & Castles Fall 2011 Collection to be available in the coming weeks at select retailers worldwide.
