Bling Blang Wang

Alexander Wang Runway Show

COLLECTION 1

New York City

Sunday June 3, 2018

Early Summer NYC with crisp cool air,  Alexander Wang and the Wang Gang bring the Heat.  The Athleisure Sexy Bondage Sexy Goth, Bling AW Belts, Spiked heels, Bulky Kicks, with some patriotic clothes and Star make-up mixed in for good measure.  Quite a Show.

AW keeps to his traditional color palette of black and white. The overall look is similar to the 2014 AW x H&M Collection.

I’m liking the uni-sex number 88 jersey.  Black & White with some comfy short sleeves. The roominess is a great sign for Fall 2018. 

Looking like it’s gonna be an Alexander Wang Gear 4th of July party! Face paint with striped stars, nice touch.  Pop of red with a hint of blue. I see a Lei!

The Athleisure Bondage Sexy Goth. Makes you want to quit the carbs and get some abs..eh?

Nice roof-top NYC setting.  Sandra Bernhard hosted Wang TV. The Classic Alexander Wang running, jumping, waving, smiling &  greeting guests post show.  One last look at the Bling it on, leather, no lace lookity-look for Fall 2018

See you on the Streetz!

Style Watch-Chicago Cubs Game Gear

The Unofficial Official Game Gear for a Chicago Cubs Game

Norm-Core/Suburban Chic Females

Many females in Chicago-land wear their uniform almost daily. Black leggings, shirt or hoodie from PINK and Brown Uggs. Some call it Norm-Core or Suburban Chic. Most call it their daily clothes.

Norm-Core/Suburban-Chic/Preppy-Jock/Yuppy-Wanabe Males

For guys it would usually be Jeans, T shirt or Polo shirt, Jordan’s or Ultra Boosts. Not much Off-White or Fear of God to be seen. Just a few pockets of peeps here and there.

Most men and Women of Chicago dress alike. Especially in the North Suburbs.

Chicago Cubs Game Gear

At the Chicago Cubs game a similar version of sameness can be seen.

Here is the Unofficial Official Chicago Cubs Game Gear: Baseball cap, T-Shirt inside unbuttoned Cubs Jersey w shorts just above or below the knee (Mostly Khakis or Cargo shorts) Kicks are mostly real dad shoes, Mostly 90’s era NBs, Nike, Asics & Adidas or Slides & Flip-Flops (Known as Slippers in Hawaii).

Glam it Like Beckham

david-beckham-HOUSE-99-Feb-

House 99 Brand Products

Beckham’s been keeping busy lately, purchasing a Miami based MLS soccer/football team, designing cloths for Kent & Curwen and partnering with L’Oreal to bring us House 99 brand grooming products.

Inspired by British barber shops and Beckham’s own taste & flavor, House 99 delivers 21 products for the 2018 man.  Known for his pin point shots on goal, tats and of course his hair, we can expect a bunch of hair-care products and he even has a tattoo body moisturizer.  Quinoa and Spirulina are two of the main ingredients in many of the offerings.

Products packaged in crisp, clean black & white containers. And the 99 stands for 1999.  The year he married Posh Spice/Victoria, the year his son Brooklyn was born and the year Manchester United scored some big time press, publicity and wins!

House 99 launches February 1, 2018 exclusively at Harvey Nichols in the UK. On March 1, 2018 the brand hits 19 countries and becomes more available to the world.

ERDEM x H&M

Interesting Choice?

Streetzblog has been tracking the November H&M collabs for a few years now. And this year, the November 2017 collaboration is going to be ERDEM x H&M.

More than a bit, but a BIG departure from Alexander Wang and Balmain. ERDEM up until this collection has done Women’s wear with lots of flowing flowers.  ERDEM says on the H&M website that yes, there will be menswear.

What to expect?  Maybe Tweed Jackets, flower power shirts, riding boots, jodhpurs? We shall see! The collection comes from the English Countryside.  Not the City streetz of London.

It would have been a good year for OFF WHITE x H&M to happen.  Well, I expect we’ll see a dark blue with small red&white flowers hipster/Hawaiian short sleeved shirt. Been seeing many renditions of them lately. So, maybe H&M is on the right track. That shirt is super popular out here in Hawaii.   When I think about it, these clothes will probably go well with H&M’s Coachella vibe, they’ve been doing over the last few years.

I guess I shoulda’ bought more Alexander Wang x H&M when I had the chance. But with 2 credit cards, a debit card and some cash, I barely made it out of there without washing dishes. The clothes are great. The 2 pairs of shoes are way too big.  But nice to look at..LOL  *If you want a pair of the Mens Alexander Wang x H&M shoes, email me, I’m sure we can figure out a trade/cash deal.  They are still NIB.

What do you think of ERDEM x H&M? Me, I don’t quite get it. Or I keep forgetting that H&M also sells Women’s wear. And many celebrities wear the ERDEM clothes like: Emma Stone, Keira Knightley and Nicole Kidman.

We’ll keep you posted on the ERDEM x H&M collection. For now, we have this teaser video:

See you on the Streetz!

Design Time

 Finished Pants Project One

The Christmas 2015 Cryllic Streetzblog shirts made it from NY to HI today (7/27/16). The same day I completed the Seersucker Pants Project.

Above is the front of the new shirts and the right side completed pants leg.

The pants started off as $130 Suit pants on sale at Kohl’s for $50.  They now have 2 overlapping layers, Black Stripes on both sides with the right side a bit more tricked out with the grey design.  Also, cuffed them and took in the inseam. Quite a project!
  Here is the right leg. Similar to the left leg, just missing the grey acruements.

What I call my mood board for the next project. That’s just page one, there are an additional 5 pages of other pictures and influences I plan to use. At the moment, I’m putting together the basic portion of the pants. Later on comes the fun embellishing portion. I tend to let my brain cruise. Then burst into action as I make them into something completly new!

In just one day, I cut out a pattern using an older pair of pants. I made 4 legs, only needed 2 LOL.  And I have 4 flat pocket portions.  Did them with paper first, pinned em’ then cut out the black linen blend. So far, this project is moving quick!

Front and back legs, All cut up and ready to sew.

4 layers of black pockets ready to go!

The back of the new Streetzblog shirts.


Front and back of the new Streetzblog shirts. These are also supposed to be in black and    Red, but they are yet to arrive.

Goal of the new black linen pants to be finished is Wednesday August 24, 2016. I want to wear them to the Cubs game in Chicago on Friday September 2nd. So far, so good.

See you on the Streetz!
