We all know about Givenchy, which had one of the largest hypes in the fashion industry this past year and is currently on top. The popularity grew with the Rottweiler graphic, the leather and star applications over to the floral shirts and tees. Besides the creative ideas they are very well known for their prices, from hundreds of dollars to down right unpayable.

Well today we came across GIRAUNCHY! Yes, its not a typo, the brand is called Giraunchy. Though only offering one t-shirt at the moment, its so dope that you just might want to buy it! Its currently sold out but a restock is planned to be available shortly. What do you guys think?

“Youth Always Wins”

A man with many talents, known as the creative director of DONDA, the style adviser of Kanye West and co-owner of Chicago lifestyle boutique RSVP Gallery, Virgil Abloh is slowly but steadily also adding the designer title to his long list of occupations.

Today his brand PYREX VISION has released a video lookbook for its sophomore collection for Spring/Summer 2013, entitled “Youth Always Wins”.

“From American designer, Virgil Abloh.
The winner will always be young.
It’s all based of his high school experience. Pusha-T drug raps. Champion gym uniforms. Caravaggio obsession. Micheal Jordan as God. Kurt cobain felt the most real. Black kid with white tendencies.
That juxtaposition.
Being self-taught was the extent of his art education. Added help from living and breathing youth street skate culture combined with living in Rome and Paris.
YOUTH WINS GAMES no matter the sport. Pavement. Concrete.
Models casted from Harlem to Amsterdam to represent the YOUTH. The next.”

Made up of bold logo pieces for the most part, Abloh worked with a set number of color palettes for the new collection. The line features shorts, t-shirts, plaid shirts, caps and more, everything coming with a slightly oversized fit. Modeled by A$AP Barri, A$AP Nast, A$AP Josh, A$AP Illz, Ian Connor and Nayle Junior, the collection is now available at RSVP Gallery.

JVP Melbourne

One of the most satisfying things about blogging is discovering creative new brands like the following one. JVP Melbourne (founded by Jason Vincent Piperno) creates very flashy t-shirts/tees in bold colours and huge abstract graphics. From red roses over feathers to ancient historical scenes which were mirrored. A couple of the styles are almost all over prints, so they are closer to a pattern than to a graphic.  The only bad news we got is mostly everything is sold out! But we found the pieces so creative that we decided to share the brand!  We assumed that these were just normal cotton tees  but they’re polyester, which may explain the $100 price tags. That along with the face that the tees are very rare and limited. We look forward to seeing some more of their upcoming pieces. via Le3rd

Hedi Silmane Out at SLP?

After stirring things up earlier this year announcing that fashion house Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) would be changing its name to Saint Laurent Paris (SLP) for revamping and “branding purposes,” it now appears that it might be time for a change of scenery for the newly appointed creative director Hedi Slimane.

Slimane received less than great reviews for his first Saint Laurnet collcetion and he may now be forced to leave Los Angeles, where he lives and works as a photographer to return Paris, the brand’s headquarters.

“They’re only going to indulge him for one more season with this LA thing and if he doesn’t turn out a tremendous collection, they’re going to summon him back to Paris or end his contract,” predicted one fashion consultant.Saint Laurent Paris CEO Paul Deneve, however, recently said that Slimane — who YSL took a risk in hiring as he hadn’t worked for a major design house since leaving Dior in 2007 — was brought in for his “very clear vision for the house.”
