brand spotlight: h&m studio aw/2017.

in case you weren't one of us who had our calendars marked well in advance, today was the launch of h&m's studio aw/2017 collection. i got a first look at a few of the pieces a couple of weeks back on my buddy @oh_anthonio and instantly became obsessed. fast forward to earlier this month and, to my very sweet surprise, i got the chance to snag a few pieces before the drop (and just in time for #nyfw)!

check out some of the pieces i copped from the collection below, and keep scrolling for my personal picks from the assortment—including that amazing ribbed turtleneck collar, which i bought this afternoon right after it went live. -j

look 10: ports 1961 x everlast.

the second half of my ports 1961 project was all about the brand's new collab with everlast. creative director milan vukmirovic dropped a fresh new capsule collection born in performance, but enhanced by style; and the items are pretty cool. check out the piece i picked out below. -j

we've been having a crazy winter up here in nyc, but i'm not complaining. i mean, shorts in the middle of january... that's a sweet deal. i'm really into this set from the collab: they're hella cool thanks to ports 1961's iconic star camo print, but they also add some tough boxing vibes to the whole mix for a nice statement. the capsule features a number of garments inspired by the sport, all of which are sure to give your spring wardrobe (or gym game) an extra punch of style.

òl new york fw16: the underdog collection.

i love when i see other young creatives making moves around the city. my buddy allen (@hey_al) just dropped the fw16 collection for his label, òl new york, earlier this afternoon. titled the underdog collection, the line offers a dope range of fall statement pieces—from doberman-emblazoned souvenir jackets to comfy shearling basics and outerwear.

my favorite part of the collection has to be the all-around color palette. i've been obsessed with dusty pinks & muted earth tones lately, and this offering gives all of that in some pretty sweet combinations. check out my favorite shots from the lookbook, as well as my top 3 picks from the line, below. -j
