“It’s all good Baybeh Baybeh”
Your favorite 90’s sweater made famous by Biggie himself will be returning and no we’re not talking about the long sleeve (Even though that will be available as well), but an actual sneaker featuring the Coogi materials. Everything about this upcoming Etonic collab takes us back to the Good Ol’ Coogi / Versace combination, that was worn by Biggie (See Below) and became one of the most iconic hip hop images to date.
Etonic Footwear has teamed up with Knitwear Legends Coogi to bring you this exclusive Trans Am trainer which coincides with the release of the Knitwear.
Both brands are rich in heritage-Etonic produced the Akeem basketball shoe for Hakeem Olajuwon in 1984, which have now been re-released.
The Sweaters and Hoodies are available NOW from Kith NYC at the price of $600USD.
The footwear is scheduled for release early 2015 at Size in Harrods in a limited release at the price of £295.
Coogi Knitwear has an obvious connection with the rapper Notorious B.I.G. who supported the brand back in the day. The rapper stated his official love for the brand with a lyric from the song, “One More Chance”.
Nike x Mo’Wax by James Lavelle NikeLab presents Nike x Mo’Wax by James Lavelle. A capsule collection of restyled Nike silhouettes, this collaboration underscores Mo’Wax founder James Lavelle’s longstanding relationship with Nike and his penchant for sampling and uniting eclectic cultural influences. This rebellious approach is reiterated by the collection’s “Build and Destroy” tenet, which in Lavelle’s own words means to “make something and build it up, then move on to something new.”A DJ, recording artist and producer, Lavelle founded the London-based record label Mo’Wax in 1992, and the company originally gained fame for its counter-culture approach to creativity. Using cross-pollination as an artistic ethos, the label became a bastion of underground subcultures and independent music, championing experimentation and pioneering new genres. This novel method marked the emergence of a movement and Mo’Wax’s expansion. Propelled by its boundary-blurring philosophy, Mo’Wax and UNKLE — Lavelle’s personal recording alias — pushed collaboration across mediums, from music, art and photography to fashion, film and toys. The first partnership with Nike was to create the Dunk Hi Pro SB “DUNKLE” in 2004.
A decade later, Nike x Mo’Wax by James Lavelle champions Mo’ Wax’s past and its future by adapting its renowned collage approach to iconic Nike silhouettes.Nike x Mo’Wax By James Lavelle MA1 Destroyer in Black and OliveNike x Mo’Wax By James Lavelle MA1 Destroyer and Blazer Hi in BlackNike x Mo’Wax By James Lavelle MA1 Destroyer in Olive and T-shirt in WhiteThe Nike x Mo’Wax by James Lavelle MA1 Destroyer Jacket is crafted from a classic collegiate leather-and-wool combination remixed with flight jacket-style details, including nylon at the shoulders and bright orange lining with a heat-pressed camouflage pattern. Graffiti-like embroidery and removable twill patches further customize the outerwear layer. A subversive take on traditional military decals, they feature the signature reverse script of longtime Mo’Wax collaborator Gio Estevez. These original patches present characteristic Mo’Wax names and slogans, such as “Your future is our past” and “Headz”.
Stitching along the placket proudly asserts the attitude that drives Lavelle’s work: “Happy are those who dream dreams and who are willing to pay the price to see those dreams come true.”Nike X Mo’Wax Blazer Hi in BlackNike X Mo’Wax Blazer Hi in OliveThe Nike x Mo’Wax by James Lavelle Blazer presents a similar streetwear-meets-sportswear-meets-military aesthetic.
