Safety Orange Reflective Tape comes between Me and my Calvin’s

Sound the Sirens!

Raf Simons for Calvin Klein F/W 2018

Not sure, how I missed Raf Simons going to CK. Thought his own brand and latest Blade Runner themed Runway show was doing well for him. I suspect it is and he just wanted a new challenge. I do know when I was at DSMNY, Raf’s clothes came in one day and out the other, same with the kicks, Everything sold out very quickly.

I have a personal liking to this collection. In the late 90’s, I was sewing Orange reflective tape on to my shorts, jackets and pants. Was and still is one of my favorite accents.

Here are many of the looks with the Safety-Orange Reflective Tape used on the F/W 2018 clothing.

Orange and Yellow Reflective Tape Accents. Plus a pretty Rad-Raf long-faux Leopard jacket! 

Here’s a few similar items I spotted at the Canal Street Art Cafe in NYC December 2017 The person working the cafe/store/art exhibition told me that Tommy Hilfiger’s younger brother: Andy,  designed these jackets.

And a few of my things lying around the house. Not all with the reflective tape, but all with the vibrant orange hue!

Diesel sells Deisel

Fun Times on Canal St. NYC

A Trip to NY isn’t a trip to NY without a stop on Canal Street to check the Knock-Off Goods. If you were there in early February 2018, you could’ve scored some decent DIESEL or shall we say DEISEL Gear.

The Real Deal DIESEL set up shop along Chinatown’s Canal street during NYFY2018. For the first day, they acted as if everything was a knock-off. The 2nd day they let everyone know that it was really DIESEL.  The brand received lots of exposure and hopefully some younger fans of the brand.

Prices were also inexpensive and sold on eBay for much more. ProTip:  The DIESEL SITE says to check back on February 19 for a re-stock on the Goods!  Check em out, you may be one of the lucky one’s to score some great deals on DEISEL!  See  you on the Streetz…blog!

 

On the topic of brands knocking off their own brands. Here’s Gucci with Guccy.  I bet they sold a lot of these after the NBA All-Star Game 2018.  Heard one of the announcers say something like this:  Hey, what’s that shirt? That’s not how you spell Gucci

Crossover to these New Kicks

The Crossover Culture B-Ball Kicks
The-Crossover-New-Shoe-Web

The Goods

The philosophy behind the Crossover Culture kicks is they are for all positions on the court. Since Big Men are shooting 3’s and dishing dimes.  And shorter guys are rockin’ the rim with high-flying dunks, these shoes are made for everyone.

They’re designed by B-Ball players for B-Ball players.  And their big selling point is they are comfortable str8t out of the box and the special LP cushion system will last a looong time before wearing out. If it wears out at all.

The Kicks come in both Hi & Low tops. I’d go with the Hi-Tops, up to you.

Here is the information directly from Crossover Culture as found on the EastBay Blog.

And below is a special YouTube video telling us more about the new Crossover Culture Kicks.

Materials: Crossover Culture uses premium materials to provide structure and support while also zone-engineering key elements like stability and breath ability where you need them the most. This means the shoes don’t need a lot of overlays and support structures added on, giving you a lightweight feel that still provides plenty of protection and support.
Cushioning: A zero-compression set compound doesn’t break down over time like traditional foams, giving you the same resilient cushioning from Day 1 to Day 101. The proprietary cushioning is optimized for impact protection and stability control, so you’re always comfortable and ready to roll on the court.
Stability: A wishbone suspension system offers dual-direction stability without restricting flex zones, striking the perfect balance between cushioned comfort and speed on the court. This keeps you comfortable and in control even at high speeds. A molded external mid-sole heel counter increases lightweight stability at the point of impact, minimizing injury risk without weighting you down.

Glam it Like Beckham

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.

PRADA-Pre Fall/Winter 2018-19

Newest of the New-Number One

Menswear 2018-19.

When I was in NY in Dec 2017, they had a book for sale for $275 that told the Men’s Trend’s for 2019. It was quite pricey, yet a bit tempting to see what colors and trends are in-upcoming.

Instead of buying the book, In Jan and Feb 2018, Steetzblog will post some Runway shows and what we see at the early shows. Today, we have Prada-Pre Fall 2018 + Fall Winter 2018-19.

Check the Vid below and here’s a quick, insta re cap of some of what’s in store for us for 2019:

Black, Continued trend of Flo-Yellow, Blues in various shades, knee length shorts. Classic Prada Red and White on Black, Lots of Bags n Tags. Slate Grey, Whites, Women in Men’s wear, gender fluidity.

URBAN-TROPICAL

Hats, More bags n Tags, Decent hi-tops, some tan, some more Fluorescent. Fluid, Comfy Cuts.

Overall, Nice show, some of my favorite colors, music worked, clothes fit the classic Prada vibe perfectly. Didn’t push the envelope to much, but didn’t need to, very wearable clothes and Kicks!
