House of Gucci-Trailer #2

Don’t Miss

MGM is doing a great job simplifying the overly wordy book. I remember trying to read it 2 or 3 times and every time I attempted it, There were just way too many unneeded words and lots of legalize. The actors look to be on their A+ game on this exciting thrill ride thru the House of Gucci. And look at all the Gucci branding on this new trailer. It will for sure sell a large amount of clothes, belts and shoes. Wonder if the stores will have branded store windows? Enjoy the trailer and Happy Halloween 2021.

Into the Out we Go

DSQUARED2 Spring/Summer 2022 Men’s and Women’s Runway Show-September 26, 2022

#D2FAIRYTALE

DSQUARED2 brings the HEAT to Spring/Summer 2022. The Clothes, the setting and the music all provided an entertaining event. But Dang! Tonight I missed sewing class. Worked on a WORK project from 5p-8p. I never miss sewing class, that is sacred time for me. Takes me forever to complete a project and missing a week throws me all off base. I bring up class because I know how hard it is to make those custom patch Jeans and cargo’s. It’s probably worth your $700-$1200 that they may charge for them. A lot of work goes into that fit

I thoroughly enjoyed the music. Up-Beat, Fun, Driving the show Forward, with some interesting intrinsic hidden meanings that matched the clothes. If you hear it a few times, you may notice it. Very nice music! The show gives us a vibe from the 1990’s Club Kid Era with modern cuts and colors appropriate for the “hopeful” Post Pandemic world we should be in Spring/Summer 2022

The show brought joy and fun to the Runway. Some dope pants for both Men and Women, all three, the cargo’s, jeans and the sliced and diced chrome collection. Oversized green camo with bright Orange Linings-A never miss duo. That’s in my top 10 for sure. The black boots with white laces and the overall vibe of the show was very positive and entertaining from start to finish. I may cut my air like the Asian man model. And did that shirt really say Boy Bitch on it!! LOL BTW: Not sure what the song is called, here is the info on who provided it @adrianoalboni But as of 9/29/21 there are no posts on his IG site. A great time for him to get noticed, but I guess he wants to stay UG (Underground) If any one knows the name of the tune, please let us know in the comments section below

As per usual, we watch the show, then do the Highlights and the Lowlights. Here they are for the DSQAURED2 S/S 2022 show:

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Green Camo with bright Orange Linings
  • the Music My favorite part of the show
  • Black Combat boots with white laces
  • Ripped Chrome Mens and Womens pants. Especially the Bronze colorway
  • Greenish Blue cargos. Not exactly sure of the color but I’d rock them
  • the Graffiti
  • Patch Jeans and Patch cargos
  • White Cargos with black stripe
  • the Club Kid Crown

LOWLIGHTS

  • Butterfly wings on the guys
  • Shorts just about 2.2 inches too short
  • they walked way to fast for my brain to catch up with the clothes
  • the Club Kid Crown…yep it made both categories. Kinda nice Ode to Michael Alig (RIP) and the NYC Club kids, but also looked a bit flimsy and it’s always been too dorky for my taste

And if you want to see how far DSQUARED2 has traveled and progressed, see the F/W 2012-13 show below:

Made for Publicity

Balenciaga seems to pick one look each year for pure publicity. One year it was the duo shirt ($1,290), which had a T-shirt sewn behind a dress shirt, for the F/W2018 collection it was the iconic 7 layer jacket ($9,000). You can see them above/below or here on the Streetzblog. This year, it’s the grey sweat pants with the red plaid boxer briefs along the waistline. *Ya know the only time I saw someone wear the duo shirt, they had the plaid shirt on with the T-shirt dangling on the back. The model wears it with the T shirt and the long sleeve dropping up front. Interesting.

Unlike the duo shirt and the multi-layered jacket which both poked fun and helped Balenciago go viral. This year, the pants are not only going a bit viral, but come with controversy. “Sagging” as they call it, is not allowed in some states and lots of schools. Some of the the Twitter/IG conversation is claiming the pants racist, others are using the word Gentrified Sagging and many are just enjoying the goofiness of the pants.

The sweats are part of the F/W 2021 collection with the name: Trompe-L’Oeil Sweatpants. And of course, the price is a bit high at $1,190.

I’m thinking, the pants would have looked better with ripped Jeans and the boxers. The grey sweats are pretty old school.

What do you think? I suspect if the talk continues, the pants will either sell out quickly or be pulled off the site. Maybe, Just put em in the back of the closet with the duo shirt and the 7 layer jacket. As Creative Director of Balenciaga-Demna Gvasalia continues to laugh his way to the bank with massive amounts of money.

Demna and Virgil have the world hooked on whatever they create.

Back to the Matrix we Go

The trailer for the most anticipated Matrix-Resurrections is available now to watch. Glad they have NEO with longer hair or I may confuse him with John Wick. I know Trinity more now as the lawyer from Jessica Jones. And where is Morpheus? So far, no sightings of him. Hmmm. Seems like it’s been eons since the last Matrix movie. Maybe he died? And didn’t come back to life?

Looks like they take us back to the “real” world which could be cool. Seeing we went pretty deep into the Matrix in the last Movie. Maybe, just maybe, we will see some REAL answers to so many questions. Looks like a great movie, just need to wait until Christmas for the release.

What do you think of Matrix Resurrections? Let us know in the comments section below:

KITH comes to Kalakaua

Waikiki, Oahu-August 20, 2021

The Iconic KITH store opened up on Friday August 20, 2021 on Oahu. Located between the Apple store and Jimmy Choo on Kalakaua Ave. I stopped by for a few quick snaps of the store. And made an ill-fated attempt to get in to the store.

For their Grand-Opening they released a KITH colored bright light blue and white Air Force1 with the Hawaiian Islands featured on the tongue. They did tickets, wristbands and general standing in line to get the kicks. Saw some of the AF1’s re-selling for $700-$900.

The Store has clothes and shoes on the main road and a KITH treats shop a bit inside The Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center.

If you got lucky enough to purchase a pair of the limited release AF1. Congrats! Maybe I’ll see you down there one day in a few weeks or months. See you on the Streetz…blog!

Balenciaga Goes Bag Lady

Balenciaga Spring-Summer 2022. Clones collection.

This is a show that needs to be watched at least 5x to see the many hidden and blatant meanings, musings, messaging and of course the clothing. Are the clothes on the models the clothes? Or maybe the collection is on the attendees all dressed in black. What is real? What is fake? Are those really Balenciaga bags with the Gucci pattern? So many different things going on. Its like a Where’s Waldo book for the fashionista. Take a look and see what you see? I suspect everyone sees something different.

The Matrix, Sisters of Mercy hairdo’s and shades, That one lady who looks like a robot, That other lady in black that never moves, The iPhones swaying side to side in unison. What do you see? Let us know in the comments section.

The world was opening, then it went a bit mad, now it’s time to stock up on supplies. Will we enter Mad Max Fury Road territory or can we hang on long enough to make it to promised land of Oz? Who knows what the world brings us in 2022. At least we can watch this a few more times to escape some of the things that may come our way.

As we always do on Runway shows, here are the Highlights and Lowlights of the show:

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Mirrored winged sunglasses with an ode to the lead singer of Sisters of Mercy
  • The banging music
  • The French prologue
  • This is not a Gucci bag, it’s a Balanciaga that looks just like a Gucci bag
  • The Simpsons hoodie (All sporting Balenciaga gear) Might want to pause it to see what they are wearing
  • The Footlocker Balenciaga shopping bag. It’s probably $800 or more.
  • That black hoodie with Orange lettering. My favorite colors.
  • 90’s updated exaggerated Cyber-Goth pants

LOWLIGHTS:

  • Oversized bathrobe dresses
  • That oversized puffer look we continue to see on the Runway
  • The sadness on some of the models faces
  • Shirts tucked into pants. All stuffy looking. Yikes!
  • The red upside down chandelier dress
  • That frilly black thing dangling on the models foot
  • The show was too short

Balenciaga Clones Collection:

Demna Gvasalia declared:

“It’s a deep fake of a fashion show,” “What we see online is not what it is. What’s real and what’s fake?”

But no one was “there” and no one is “real.” “It’s a show that never happened,” “But the clothes are real; they were made.

Info provided by vogue.com June 2021

The show notes from vogue.com let us know that they used all of these futuristic applications to make the Runway show:

A deluge of photogrammetry, C.G. grafting, scanning, planar tracking, rotoscoping, machine learning, and 3D modeling.
