 We Love Seattle
…And our tees say it all!
 
If you’ve lived in Seattle for more than thirty days you’ll start to develop a giant love for this city… whether its the food, scenery or the wonderful dog parks that give Charlie the opportunity to run in circles every Sunday afternoon; we live in a gorgeous place! Its been said that beauty inspires creativity and these shirts are prime example of how our city has been an inspiration for others.

Designed by one of our ever-so-talented interns, Francis, the tee on the left is a combination of our logo and Seattle’s sky line. We lovelovelove them. And yes, its quite the biased opinion 🙂 Sizes are limited so grab them while they last!
Ringo ‘Seattle Logo’ Tee: $29.50
 
The artist for Wet Cement made a recent trip to Seattle and snapped this cool picture of the intersection between Westlake and 6th Ave (right)…. and we just HAD to get it! The graphic is on a great burn-out tee, like all other Wet Cement products. Between the picture and the soft feel of the shirt, we know its a piece all Seattle-ites should have in their Summer wardrobe.
Wet Cement ‘Westlake’ Tee: $74.50

Lavsh – Seattle Fashion Week

April 19, 2009

Seattle Fashion Week 2009

Thursday Night Featured Independent Artists.  One label that stood out was Lavsh by Alfred Lape

Lape is a very driven, disciplined and focused 25 year-old self taught fashion designer.  Talking with him for 5-minutes or even observing his demeanor reflects this.  Likewise, his clothes demonstrate his ability and inspiration of individuality and luxury in the garments he handcrafts.   Taken from Tom Ford, “True Luxury is found in clothing that has been shaped and honed by human hand,” Lape holds true to this as he is responsible for selection of fabrics, design, sketching and production.  One-of-a-kind garmets are available for purchase. Overall I applaud Lavsh & their ingenuity in modern menswear.   My only question is, does he ever take off his shades?

Architecture Meets Fashion

March 26, 2009

Neil Barrett 

Coming from a British heritage of master tailors, Barrett was introduced to the art of fashion at an early age.  After a master degree in mens fashion he worked for Italian giant Gucci, Prada & even had a collaboration with Puma.  

In 1999 Barrett launched his self-named label and in 2006 this amazing store was opened in Minato-ku, Tokyo Japan.  I think there are strong coorelations between fashion & design.  Everything from the design lines, inspirations and philosophy –

“Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.”   –   Coco Chanel 

Flagship store in Tokyo, Japan.

Architecture design by Zaha Hadid Architects

A few selections, from his label described as:    “his signature style stems from his reworking of iconic men’s wear details and fit.  The product’s broad appeal lies in Neils ability to combine timeless quality, wearability and fashion trend.”

Fashion in Seattle – Escada vs. Gucci

March 2, 2009

 

escada Gucci  for Escada –   Located directly across from louis vuitton Washington sees the opening of it’s first Gucci retail store, 1 of 16 within the US.   Retail specialists believe Gucci will be more succesful than Escada, primarily due to the cultish obsession buyers have with their handbags.   Accesories decadent with Gucci print costing hundreds of dollars vs. thousands of dollars womens outfit (Escada), tend to be more aggreable with the Pacific Northwest shopping demographic (makes sense to me).   Interestingly enough, Gucci had been considering opening shop East of Seattle, in Bellevue where Neiman Marcus will be opening.  However Bellevue Nordstroms’ in-store mini Gucci-eria kept Gucci Retail west of 520.  How’s that for proof that fashion is budding in Seattle?  Or, is it just lack luster designer driven appeal where 150K earners buy fashion for their logos and status – and the 20k earners…like you and me 🙂
