V.O.B. - Fashion: Oliver Spencer Spring Coats

An essential piece in your wardrobe for this time of year is a light coat, preferably somewhat waterproof. Whether you happen to be looking for a tailored look or something more modern, British brand Oliver Spencer has some fantastic options that are sure to suit your needs. From one end of the spectrum you have the Short Mac Carlyle and Suffolk Jackets in Navy or Khaki. Both give you that classic belted trenchcoat look, with slim tailored silhouette. If you need something more modern and casual, the all new Quay Jacket is young and fresh looking alternative; the hooded jacket pulls on over your head with a half button placket with wooden buttons, and a cream herringbone lining and a drawcord around the hem with leather pulleys. Either way you go, the elegant aesthetic and exquisite craftsmanship blend the youthful exuberance of streetwear stylings, with the focus and attention to detail found on all your favorite timeless classics. Available here.

V.O.B. - Architecture: WAI architecture: vertical omotesando

'vertical omotesando'

'vertical omotesando' is a architectural proposal by international firm WAI architecture
for a fashion museum which reflects the culture of the omotesando fashion world
in tokyo. the structure is envisioned to be a verticial version of the omotesando street in
which it is based.

inside the 100 meter-high museum tower, the interior is reinterpreted as a network of
shuttling elevators, platforms, escalators and stairs that connect a series of horizontally
projected volumes. the enclosed nature of the floating floors evoke a sense of exclusivity,
a characteristic typical of high fashion boutiques. the proposal hosts a variety of
entertainment activities with spaces allocated to fashion galleries, a runway area and a sky
bar on the highest floor.

'vertical omotesando' gallery

one of the key features used to navigate through the building is an elevated platform or
'moving catwalk'. this pathway provides an alternative way to wander through the building,
departing from the predictable walkthrough experience of a museum. in doing this, visitors
are given more choices in finding their own trajectory through the building.

'vertical omotesando' runway

the 'moving catwalk' starts at the main lobby and distributes its passenger through the
floating galleries, only to finish off at the last level where one can find the runway and
skybar. on the runway floor, the catwalk becomes not only a part of the seating area, but
also provides visibility to the backstage room of the runway. in doing this, it hopes to open
up the relationship between fashion and the public while encouraging visitor participation.

An interesting theme making its way into the adidas Originals 2010 spring/summer collection has been their “TF” line. The TF line is based around iconic classics which feature a transformable upper. The initial drop has seen highlights that include the Superstar and the Stan Smith 80s seen here. In its original form, the Stan Smith features a high-top profile in which the upper can be un-zipped and removed to create a low-top version in a different color. We expect this concept to continue on with further releases but for the time being, the Stan Smith 80s TF is available now at select retailers.
