Fashion and Fitness Go Goth!

The Health Goth Craze

Health Goth on the cover of Sportswear International

Health-Goth makes the cover of SPORTSWEAR INTERNATIONAL. Issue #264. December 2014. A/W 2015-16 preview.

The Streetzblog definition of Health-Goth is: Awesome High-Tech, functional and fun fabrics that look just as good on the street as they do in the gym. Utilizing these 4 colors: Black, Grey, Silver and White. The Perfect example of Health-Goth is the Alexander Wang x H&M collection.

Rick Owens produces some great Health-Goth gear. He’s known for his oversized black and white Ramone’s Sneaker that shows homage to the Original Black and white Converse All-Stars:

These are my feet, just not my shoes..LOL

ADYN exemplifies the Health-Goth look with slightly longer cuts in the length of a Health-Goth shirt,  High-Tech materials and the all black look:

Even Adidas is in on the Health-Goth Trend with Rita Ora: (Note: This collection added in a bit of Neon Yellow to the Health-Goth color palette. That’s ok, as long as it’s not the main color of the collection.  A bit of Neon yellow or Flo Green goes well with the more sporty Health-Goth.

Whatever 21 shows us the Health-Goth look while hanging out at Home Depot. Notice, they go for more of a White color first, then the black in this collection. Different from the original Black clothing as the more dominate color. Enjoy the video:

Cottweiller has some nice grey’s mixed with whites, along with some pretty fab fabrics: Check out their website, it sure has a very futuristic vibe to it. Almost like playing a video game when checking out the various looks.

Some of the original Health-Goth proponents are already saying the trend is dead. But as you can see by the following excerpt from New York magazine. The Health-Goth craze is still trending in the City and at the Gym.

See you on the Streetz, Actually, Now I’m headed over to the gym to get my Health-Goth groove on. Going to wear my Black Quicksilver Eddie Would Go surf shorts, a plain all black H&M long sleeve T-Shirt and my Alexander Wang x H&M Scuba inspired Kicks.  I hope to get more healthy than goth today. We shall see by where I turn up after the gym. Have a nice week!

Alexander Wang x H&M-Men’s Collection-Sneak Peak

Wang Nab It

Alexander Wang x H&M

Ever since H&M moved in about 10 minutes from where I live, I’ve been fascinated about following their big days, special collections, new releases and sales. Looks like we finally have some new pictures of one of the most anticipated collaborations of Fall 2014. The Alexander Wang x H&M Collaboration. The other biggest upcoming collab being the Jordan x Supreme release, which no matter what it looks like will sell out in seconds. 

The British version of GQ has generously given us a sneak peak inside the upcoming Alexander Wang for H&M collaboration. The collection features 2 of my favorite colors-Black and Grey and is inspired by a sporty vibe with boxing as the main force behind the collection. Pieces to look forward to for men include activewear, sweatshirts with Big bold raised lettering, a puffy or as the English call it Puffer jacket, WANG sunglasses and more. As reported on streetzblog back in June, the collection releases at H&M stores world-wide on Friday November  6, 2014.  Might be a good time for a Vay-Cay Day or you might want to call in sick. Looks like this is gonna’ be a BIG event at H&M with both the Men’s and Women’s wear flying off the shelves.

I’ll be at the H&M in Waikiki and will hopefully be able to nab a couple of the black and grey pieces. And also looking forward to being in NYC in Mid December to check out the newest store on 5th and 52nd or maybe the even newer yet to open store at Herald Square! Hopefully the Grand Opening will happen when I’m in town. 

Here’s few of the First Looks of the collab courtesy of British GQ.  Which is your favorite?
