Uniqlo in Hawaii

Uniqlo on Oahu!

Ala Moana:Grand Opening

Saturday September 28, 2018-Honolulu, HI

Uniqlo is reaching the Beaches and Rockin’ the shores! The Brand New Uniqlo at Ala Moana Center on the Island of Oahu is open for business! Here’s a Sneak Peak of this friendly, fashion forward, priced nice, new store. 

IMG_4790

The Day I arrive on my yearly December trip to NY, the 3rd stop right off the plane is Uniqlo on 5th Avenue. Even though, I have their heat-tech garments. I go there to get a 2nd or 3rd set and hang out to people watch. It’s a very colorful, fun store with lots of action.

The Hawaii store is also colorful and fun. But instead of Heat-Tech garments, the go to piece des resistance here is the Comfortable Rayon Aloha Shirt.  They have about 6 different patterns to choose from. They are comfortable, on trend and priced really nice at just $29.90.

I bought the Black shirt with white flowers, and may go back to get the blue and white or the White, black and Red (The Uniqlo branded color way-at least that’s what I would label it as). And you know what?  These shirts, aren’t available on 5th Avenue in NYC. They are Hawaii Exclusives. So that is pretty Awesome right there! Locals and tourists have access to  some really nice shirts at excellent prices.

Here’s some of the fun things you can see in the store. It’s like a mini museum of Aloha wear.

If you get a chance to check out the new store say yellow to Joseph. Very friendly & helpful. We even received a free Uniqlo Tote bag with this nifty secret pocket inside. *As we came in to the store, we were given Free Fans and balloons. Was a fun trip to the new store!

They have this really cool graphic Aloha Shirt hanging at the store. I did ask if it was for sale. They said not now, maybe one day. It has some nice Japanese elements and futuristic design in it. What do you think? Special Limited Edition? It reminds me a bit of Takashi Murakami’s work. BTW: They do have some pretty dope Murakami T’s in the Keiki Section of the store!

See you on the Streetz! Sunday, it’s the Clippers in Hawaii, The Hale Aina Awards and then maybe on Monday, back to Uniqlo for another Hawaii Exclusive Aloha Shirt. LMK if you want me to pick one up and send it to you. I’m sure, you’ll be delighted to Rock it! 

A Star is Born

Gaga & Cooper Killin’ It

I saw a Star is Born on 9/26/18, lucky to see it ahead of time. It’s a good movie. I can’t really do a review because I dont know how without spilling the beans on Born. The last Song of the movie is probably the best, this would be the 2nd best Tune:  Enjoy!

Glamorama

Goodwill Goes Glam

Honolulu, Hawaii: July 18, 2018 Blaisdell Exhibition Hall

Goodwill Goes Glam one of my favorite events of the year. Fun, Fashion Show, Fun, Shopping and more Fun!

First you see the Runway show. Second you shop the freshest gear to be found.  If you move quick enough, you’ll get some pretty stellar labels and high quality clothes.

This Years theme:  The Fashion Edit

This Years Designers: Allison Izu Song x Summer Shiigi

This Years Brands:  Allison Izu & Ten Tomorrow

This Years Camera:  Canon DSLR (Not an iPhone)

Ten Tomorrow

The Finale

The Finale

The Shopping And After Party

Tips:

  • Head to the Shoes and Purses first. They are next to each other. One year, I found both Prada and Bape kicks in my size. Score!
  • Next, straight to the Aloha wear. Do not stop at the toys or sports clothes on the way. The best Aloha gear goes quick. And there are some very High quality shirts and brands.  Tori Richard, Reyn Spooner, Cooke Street, Ono, Tommy Bahama & More
  • Now, it’s time for the sports jerseys.  This year, my friend Amanda scored a primo condition Walter Peyton Bears Jersey. And I bought a Mitchell & Ness  MAYS 660 BONDS Jersey in perfect condition.
  • Set a budget ahead of time. Both years, I had a pre set budget and put back what was not in budget.  Just like a sample sale, a budget is needed.
  • Grab Quick, Grab Fast, put back what you don’t want.  The first half hour is just like a NYC Sample sale. You want to get the good stuff before it’s gone. Trick to this is don’t think much, just go for what looks good, grab it fast. Then weed through your goods before check-out.  People were eyeing my Willie Mays jersey for close to 2 hours, seeing if I would put it back.  And I was eyeing a pair of Gucci sneakers, both the jersey and the shoes did not go back.

See you on the Streetz!

The 7 Layer Fit

Balenciaga’s got you Covered for Cold Weather

The Balenciaga Oversized Layered Parka Coat-Product Number: 1234071

They call this the Oversized Layered Parka Coat. And yep, it’s for sure Oversized. 7 layers to be exact. Here’s what’s included:

  • Plaid Shirts
  • Jersey Hoodies
  • Technical Fleece
  • Cold weather Outer layer
  • Cuffed sleeves
  • 2 Front patch pockets (Hopefully more inside)
  • Drawstring hood with coordinating hem

At a price of $10,405, it’s more than 1k per layer. This Coat packs a pretty big punch of Major Layered Swag.  Sure hope they add some Balenciaga logos so everyone knows what you’re rockin’. It does say that: This is a pre-shot item; this product’s details are subject to change in production. I hope so, they for sure need to add some Balenciaga writing on it. For the price, you’ll want people to know it’s a Balenciaga.  If you’re interested in slaying the layered look this Winter, you can purchase the Oversized Layered Parka Coat AKA: the 7 layered coat Here.  *Pictures courtesy of MatchesFashion.com

Y-3 Springs into Summer 2019

Y-3 Fits on Point

Y-3 Runway Show Menswear Spring/Summer 2019

Sunday June 24, 2018 Paris, France-Musee des Arts Decoratifs

Y-3 is the sporty athlesuire brand designed by Yohji Yamamto in conjunction with Adidas. They tend to stick true to their black and white color palette, with hints of various colors each season.  For SS 2019 we see some reds, greens, blues and a tannish beige/Off White. Y-3 is one of Streetzblog’s favorite brands. If we save up $$ for something, it’s usually Y-3, Rick Owens, Off-White or Alexander Wang x Adidas.

There’s plenty of time to save up, the clothes in this video will be ready to wear in Spring/Summer of 2019.

Y-3 enjoys the greatness of being able to work with ateliers in both Tokyo and Germany. Bringing the best of both Countries together.  This collection shows the specialty cuts from Tokyo/Yohji Yamamoto with innovative texture of clothing from Germany/Adidas. One of the Hot, New fabrics is used right now (June 2018) by athletes and will be available for all of us to wear in 2019. It’s the lightest Gore-Tex ever made entitled Shakedry.

The Biggest plus from the show are the clothes are getting back to baggy. Flowing, yet crisp Silhouettes. Some leggings inside of bellowing shorts and wide leg pants, which takes us one step further away from the Skinny Jean Fad.  And the Kicks are very nice and comfy with the rad Y-3 logo ever present.

This Runway show needs to be watched 2-5x to get the full effect. It’s hard to decide whether the clothes or the kicks are the Star. Both looks are on my Most Wanted List. If you look close at the clothes, you may see the new Y-3/Skull logo. It’s there, just a bit hard to find.  See what you think of the clothes and kicks and let us know in the comments section. And if you can’t wait till Spring/Summer 2018, you can get some nice deals (up to 30% off) on the y-3 stacked logo, limited edition James Harden collection or some nice Bashyo’s here at Y3.com

Below are some of the Best looks from the Runway. Pictures courtesy of Vogue.com See more pix here at (Vogue.com)  Shakedry name supplied by Vogue and WWD.
