Whether you’ve cleaned your apartment to within an inch of its life or smoked all of your weed in the first week, the walls are certainly starting to close in as quarantine goes full tilt. And despite all of the Zoom virtual happy hours that help you cling to your sanity, keep in mind that maybe for the first time ever, shopping from your couch has you in the running to be a quarantine hero.  Use this time to stock up on incense, wear your sweatpants to “work” and finally pull the trigger on some of the best high top sneakers available.

From once-in-a-lifetime grails to standard picks for any rotation, ONE37pm took the liberty of assembling the 20 best high top sneakers and where you can buy them right now (from the couch, pajama bottoms optional).

1. Air Jordan 1

Surrounded in folklore, there’s hardly a high top sneaker, even a sneaker in general, with greater cultural importance than the Air Jordan 1. The genesis of Nike’s most legendary footwear line, the AJ1’s long lineage from its athletic beginnings to its transcendence in modern culture, skateboarding and footwear in general has cemented the high top silhouette as not only an on-court staple but a streetwear icon regaled by top athletes and influencers alike.

The sneaker is one of the most recognizable designs ever and one of the only models to continually be retro-ed on an almost yearly basis since its original debut in 1985.  Best colorways include the Chicago, first Off-White collab, Pine Green and All-Star 2017.

Supra

Of the high top sneakers to make this list, I think the Supra Skytop is one of my favorites, with the potential to be top five. Based on pure historical context, the Supra Skytop was the ugly sneaker sweeping the nation before the phrase “Triple S” or “Arclight” meant anything to Balenciaga or LV. Straight from the IG mood boards of 2008, a bygone era of horrendous style, the Supra Skytop was one of the forefathers of the hyperbolically designed high top fashion-forward sneakers of the current era.

Designed partially by Chad Muska, (famous for his stash pocket on other skate sneakers), the model is a living testament to the duality of footwear. Just athletic and functional enough to be passed off as a skate silhouette but easy enough to moonlight as a glossy, fancy shoe fit for a celebrity on the red carpet.

3. Converse Chuck Taylor

StockX

Whether you’re an ancient basketball player, streetwear enthusiast, or scene kid from 2010, the Converse Chuck Taylor probably holds a special place in your heart. The sneaker’s simple canvas upper and rubber midsole was fascinating technology for turn-of-the-century athletics but the simply designed high top has created a near-perfect template to open the door for collaborations. With an unmistakable silhouette, the brand can introduce and highlight almost any fabric restructuring and colorways due to the strength of the sneaker’s simple shape.

With plain canvas and mostly tonal color schemes the sneaker also inadvertently invites the personal modification and collaboration with the wearer, just ask someone shopping for an “Asking Alexandria” t-shirt in Hot Topic. My favorite collaborations: Brain Dead, J.W. Anderson, Kith, and my sister during her goth phase.

Nike’s foray into the world of skateboarding was nothing short of controversial and iconoclastic, but no matter how you feel about the Swoosh’s place in skating, most skaters would show love to the Nike SB Dunk High. Almost as famous as its low counterpart, the Nike SB Dunk is high on the list of Nike’s best silhouettes. As circumstances would have it, a sneaker that was originally rejected by its target demographic took on a secondary role as a coveted commodity for sneakerheads looking to collect different colorways of their favorite dunk models.

The most famous moment in all of sneaker history even had to do with a dunk sneaker: the “Pigeon” dunk release which landed sneakerheads on the cover of the NY Post and the Nike Dunk at the forefront of sneakerhead’s minds. Best colorways: Sea Crystal, California, Skunk and De La Soul.

Hoka One One (look up the pronunciation) has been on the up and up since the end of 2019, producing eye-catching silhouettes with a high emphasis on materials and functionality. Their utilitarian vibe corresponds with current styles as hiking and outdoorsy silhouettes from brands like Salomon have been enjoying a long stride as a footwear favorite with everyone from actual hikers to SoHo socialites. Hoka One One’s Tor Ultra Hi 2, like most of the brand’s sneakers, features a bulky and built out silhouette with a neutral set of colors, giving off the aesthetic of a military boot.

Despite their obtuse shape, the sneaker is incredibly light. Hoka must-haves: collaboration with Engineered Garments.

Vans

It’s the Air Jordan 1, but for skateboarders. A confirmed classic, timeless, iconic and evergreen. The Vans Sk8-Hi originally debuted in 1978, and ever since it’s been an iconic silhouette for skating performance as well as lifestyle. The sneaker features a matchup of both suede and leather overlays with a padded ankle collar and staple rubber waffle print outsole.

Skaters were originally drawn to the added protection of the high collar as well as the all-over stylish design and jazz stripe, a white banner that now graces most Vans styles was first seen on the Sk8-Hi. Classic colorway: Stick with the OG black/white colorway for a vintage dash of timeless style and performance.

Adidas

The brand with the Three Stripes is not necessarily known for its relevance or prevalence on the basketball court, but the time-tested brand does have some heat still tucked away in the archives. The Adidas Rivalry Hi launched initially to some hype thanks to Patrick Ewing and features its most notable “Knicks” colorway which sees the silhouette in a mostly white colorway with blue and orange accents throughout.

Since then, the sneaker has had some help from the likes of Eric Emmanuel and Keith Haring, two recent drops that have brought some attention to the archival silhouette. Three Stripes for the court: Keith Haring or Eric Emmanuel.

Nike

The Nike Air Force 1 High features one of the brand’s best selling sneakers in a high top format. The low silhouette has garnered a reputation as a sneakerhead’s ultimate go-to, a “buy one pair every six months” type of sneaker which speaks to the reliability sneakerheads have come to enjoy over the years since the sneaker’s late ‘80s debut on the court for Nike. The high top iteration of the silhouette includes a high ankle collar with an adjustable strap that crosses in front of the tongue. Best colorway: All except for all-black, collaborations with OBJ, and yours—make your own in NikeID.

Balenciaga

As easy as it might be to stay away from high-end designer sneakers, it’s time to give the Balenciaga Speed Trainer its due. As a high top sneaker, the sock-like design separated it from other sneakers—sock-like design seemed to rule sneakers for a moment, most notably the Reebok x Vetements sock sneakers…which I still see in my nightmares.

In short, Balenciaga, for all of their lack of sneaker savvy or sneaker cultural relevance, did a good job capitalizing on the sock sneaker moment and created one of the better high tops from that weird moment in sneaker history. Best of Balenci: Keep it classic in the black/white colorway and, for the love of God, stay away from the ones with the laces.

Straight out of the mythology of Nike is their uber-famous time spent with Kanye West, who is proving to be, perhaps, the most interesting designer of the last decade. Whether you remember Ye’s work with the Swoosh or if you can only recall the 350 Turtle Dove (probably depends on your age), the product of Nike x Kanye was the stuff of instant legend.

The Nike Air Yeezy was a confirmed classic when it dropped in 2009 and only went on to more fame and circumstance with the fans when the Nike Air Yeezy 2 dropped in 2012, continuing to stroke the flame of Ye’s popularity at Nike. Want to feel like Pablo? Pick up the “Red Octobers.”

Starting out hot from his switch to Adidas, Kanye blessed us with the Yeezy 750—the first of countless numbers of silhouettes and versions to come from the collaborative efforts of West and members of the brand with the three stripes. Hyped up off the anticipation of West’s first move since Nike, the 750 was hailed for its high top style and its high top price point, coming in at around $220. The drop was an expensive but accurate representation of what the two had cooking. Return to the start of West x Adidas with the “Grey” 750 that launched the partnership.

12. Common Projects Tournament Leather High Top

Neiman Marcus

No matter your feelings about the brand Common Projects, their ability to produce a clean, high-end silhouette is far from arguable. Their simple design mixed with super high-quality materials has made them the clean and classic go-to of the designer sneaker world. (A similar case might be made for Golden Goose, but that’s for another time.) Common Projects takes a super basic sneaker design and elevates it past the point of functionality by adding a serving of extra luxe to make it something worth bragging about.

The Tournament Leather sees a classic high top sneaker in a variety of simple colorways with gold foil accenting and high-quality grade leather which covers the upper. A nice detail is a zipper on the heel with both stylistic and functional design. Sometimes all-white or black isn’t a bad thing.

StockX

At the heart of Nike is one of their lesser-known lines, All Conditions Gear—better known as ACG. Among these outdoorsy and hiking-focused silhouettes is the Nike Air Mowabb, a sleeper pick from deep in the archives that carries the energy of an @organic.zip IG story and some of the biggest IYKYK vibes ever. The sneaker is bulky, busy, and features a variety of design components like a huarache ankle collar, sock liner and upper with premium materials.

The Air Mowabb stands out for a couple of reasons, primarily it looks the best in the colorway of “RATTAN/BRIGHT MANDARIN-BIRCH” which is now widely referred to as “Mowabb.” Additionally the Air Mowabb clashed with the creative designers from Comme des Garcons, another three-lettered acronym brand that subtly replaced the “ACG” branding hit on ankle collar of the Mowabb with “CDG” a perfect detail that makes the simple black and white collab all that better. Outdoors and high fashion. Who would’ve thought?

If you’re tickled fancy by outdoorsy sneakers, trail-running, and super treaded outsoles then Salomon is a brand you’re probably familiar with. If not, it’s probably worth warming up to—with recent collaborations with streetwear juggernaut Palace, the brand’s Xt-6 and S-Lab sneakers are some of the hottest streetwear accessories right now.

The high top versions of the Salomons are just as high-tech, incredibly durable, and somehow incredibly attractive to non-hiking sneakerheads looking to give their style a more technical edge without shelling out for ACRONYM and other brands hawking high tech for a high price.

Reebok

The Reebok Shaqnosis was a no-brainer. The brand doesn’t have much to offer in terms of palatable high top sneakers, but this wavy design from ‘96 plus the cosign from the big man is certainly enough for real heads to recognize the legitimacy and impact of the Shaqnosis. Taking an interesting concept to fruition and using a simple black and white color scheme are just some of the attributes that make this sneaker a winner.

The seamless transition of the graphic from the upper to the midsole and also considering that 1996 was the first year of Shaq’s long-reigning tenure as a Los Angeles Laker are just a few additional details that round out the shoe as a successful concept. Yes, they’re still available, you just need to know where to look.

John Geiger

Maybe the only non-major brand high top sneaker to be included in the list, the John Geiger 002 is a clean and classic high top sneaker that features a unique lacing system to help the silhouette stand out from other minimalistic, designer sneakers out there. If you haven’t heard about John Geiger, well now’s your chance to tune in—the Pittsburgh creative has had “big things coming” for the past few years and has yet to fail in delivering a well thought out and fantastically designed project.

Gieger has some hot colorways out there but opt for the “Bred” version—that is, if you can track one down for a reasonable price.

Dior

All prejudice from the Dior x Air Jordan 1 collaboration aside, the Dior B23 high top sneaker is not only a good model but a successful execution of repeating patterns and the use of translucent materials on footwear. The sneaker looks like the Off-White x Converse Chuck Taylor but less translucent (smart) and more high end (something Off-White also failed to do), so let’s hear it for Dior one time.

The sneaker features a Dior logo repeating pattern with other versions featuring floral arrangements and even dinosaurs. The price is a little too spicy but if you got it like that then this is the sneaker to spend it on.

Quite possibly the weirdest high top sneaker of the last decade has been the Tom Sachs x Nike Mars Yard Overshoe. As a follow up to the equally expensive and hard to get Mars Yard 2.0 sneakers from 2017, Tom went overboard, taking the sneaker and affixing it with a large white bag and new outsole made from thick rubber with two lockdown straps over the forefoot.

Drawing style inspiration from space, the price followed suit, the sneaker sits around the $500 mark on reselling platform StockX.com. The best thing about this sneaker is what creatives did once they bought it, slashing away the white plastic covering the sneaker, a Mars Yard 2.0 can be found at the core of the silhouette. Get DIY with it and slash away until the Tom Sachs Mars Yard 2.0 (or some version of it) is finally yours.

StockX

The Yeezy line has a lot going on at the current moment, but don’t worry about trying to keep up with the avalanche of 350 releases. Turn your focus to the 500—undoubtedly a top Yeezy of all time. From the clash of neoprene, suede, and leather, the silhouette seems to channel comfort on every twist and turn of the sneaker. The 500 recently saw a high top iteration of the model and overall it looks great. The sneaker is an excellent go-between having to opt for a Yeezy boot (900, I think) or return to the 750 to get a high top style from the YZY line.

The 500 high only came out in 2019, but with no new colorways to speak of, perhaps the creative team has moved onto other models and colorways. Either way, the 500 High is a sleeper pick from the oversaturated world of Adidas x Yeezy and offers the incredible comfort of the 500 plus the added lockdown and feel of an athletic high top sneaker. Personal advice: Don’t sleep too hard on these.

The Nike Mag (famously mislabeled as Nike Air Mag) is the granddaddy of maybe all sneakers but most certainly high tops. A futuristic spin on what “sneakers are supposed to look like in the future” courtesy of Back to the Future Pt. II, the sneaker saw an initial release in 2011.

Following up in 2016 Nike reintroduced the silhouette, this time with self-lacing, an opportunity to bring the sneaker from the film to life and for Nike to introduce their E.A.R.L. (Electro Adaptive Reactive Lacing) technology to the sneaker world. For most, the Mag is the grail of grails and if it isn’t then you probably don’t care about sneakers too much. If you’re going to take the dive, go all the way in and get the self-lacing iteration which included a super limited release of 89 pairs.

Fashion on Film: Behind the 1970s Hippie and Western Movements

Can you believe we’ve reached the 1970s era of the movie installment of Fashion on Film? We’ve done the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s, and now it’s time for the 70s. Now this is how the 1970s is going to work. You had two distinct movements going on at the same time that were completely different from one another. On the one hand, you had the hippie and western movements that were reflected both in real life and on film, and then on the completely opposite end, you had the disco/Vegas movement that completely took on a life of its own.

Since these two fashion movements are as opposite as left and right, we’ve got to do them individually. We’re starting with the hippie and western, and then next time around we’ll do disco. Fun huh? Let’s get started.

Woodstock

Before Coachella, there was Woodstock. While Woodstock is credited for its cultural and musical influence, it’s also recognized as being the place where “festival fashion” was born. It was the official mainstream introduction of denim, where you could see young men and women from all backgrounds rocking different styles and cuts of denim jeans from bellbottoms to cutoffs.

There was an abundance of loose and flowy hand-crafted garments, vests, t-shirts, tanks, piercings, etc. There were even some who chose to forgo clothes all together. Woodstock was all about peace & love, and connecting to your body, nature, or even a higher source if that was your thing. It was in many ways a cultural reset (and a revolution). This continued on well into the 70s.

1970s Womens Fashion

Some of the themes in 70s womens fashion were a continuation of the hippie movement which we just mentioned, and that included lots of tye-dye, bell bottoms, gauchos, maxi dresses. Then you had the flared pants which were oftentimes accompanied by belly tops and halters, something that was unthinkable just two decades prior.

The tunics from the 50s and 60s carried over as well, but were more colorful, of course, because it was the 70s and they did it big. Mini skirts and dresses with bell sleeves were also the literal embodiment of 1970s style.

Now remember, we aren’t talking about the glamorous disco and dressy styles in this article, just the bohemian looks, so we’re going to leave it right here when it comes to the ladies.

1970s Mens Fashion

As for the fellas, they kept it simple. Jeans, tailored blazers, t-shirts, flannel on top of flannel, etc., but they were more experimental than ever. It wasn’t uncommon to see guys wearing jeans and pants in bold colors such as red, yellow, and purple, or green and blue blazers for that matter. Plaids and stripes were very popular, and oftentimes were accompanied by matching vests or sweaters, and the guys were into the flared trend too

There was also the continuing tradition of “western wear,” which sometimes the ladies indulged in as well. Depending on where you lived, you could see cowboy hats, denim jeans, and cowboy boots as a regular everyday wear amongst the men.

Those were some of the major themes present in 70s mens fashion, so now onto what we saw in the film industry.

The hippie, western, and “free love” movements were obviously reflected amongst many of the movies made during that time period. Then you also had movies that were the complete opposite of that such as Star Wars, Superman, Enter the Dragon, and The Godfather. Some of the most popular actors of the 1970s were: Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, Robert Redford, Dustin Hoffman, Jack Nicholson, and plenty of others. Some of the most popular actresses of the decade were: Olivia Newton-John, Diana Ross (who we’ll discuss more in the next installment), Farrah Fawcett, Liza Minnelli, Jane Birkin, and more.

As we do with each Fashion on Film installment, we’re recommending seven movies from the era, and this time around you’ll get double.

Hair is about a young man (John Savage) in NYC for the first time who’s preparing to enlist in the U.S Army during the Vietnam War. While there, he meets a group of Central Park hippies who he begins to hang with. From there it’s an adventure of meetups that eventually ends with him meeting and falling in love with an upper class debutante.

All the Looks in Taylor Swift’s ‘Midnights’ Era So Far

We didn’t even know that we were getting a new Taylor Swift album before the 2022 VMAs. Yet here we are, not even a full two months later, and we’re streaming a brand new Taylor Swift album. Entitled Midnights, the new project is Swift’s tenth studio album, and is a chronicle of “13 sleepless nights” in what’s described as being “a journey through terror and sweet dreams.” Every T. Swift album era includes great music that always seems to be representative of exactly what we’ve been feeling, clever marketing strategies, and signature looks.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/p/CjZ7WMkO7xZ/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

To kick off the Midnights era, Swift did a TikTok exclusive series called Midnight Mayhems With Me, in which she revealed each track on the album by way of a ping pong ball, and we couldn’t help but notice her style in the vids. If the TikTok series is any indication of what’s to come, it looks like it will be yet another memorable era for Taylor style wise, so we thought we’d recap some of the best fashion moments from it so far.

Episode 1: “MasterMind”

Revealing track number 13 on the album is called “Mastermind,” Taylor wore a soft brown blazer paired with a white shirt underneath and red lipstick. “Mastermind” already sounds like it’s going to be hit just from the title.

Episode 2: “Vigilante Shit”

Letting us know that track 8 is “Vigilante Shit,” Taylor wears a green knit button-up sweater with patched flowers on the sleeves, and denim shorts. Swift is going to be cussing in this, so we’ll assume this is the “F U Too” song on the album.

Episode 3: “Question…?”

To reveal track number 7, “Question…?, Taylor wore white off-the-shoulder button-up top, and green slacks. The only question we have now is what question she’s going to be asking in the song.

Episode 5: “Maroon”

“Maroon” sounds like it’s going to be an awesome track 2 for the album, and to reveal the song, Taylor wore a striped long sleeve blouse with brown slacks. It seems like Taylor is definitely going for an old school 60s/70s vibe style wise for this album.

How ‘Atlanta’ Is Reflective of ATL Style and Culture

Since 2016, the hit television series Atlanta has graced the television, laptop, and phone screens for millions of individuals around the world. The show has caused plenty of social media conversation, viral memes, and GIFs over the years, but the one thing that hasn’t really been discussed that much is the overall style showcased in the series and amongst the characters. The show is called Atlanta because it’s based in Atlanta, but there hasn’t been much talk about the ATL fashion. From the earlier seasons where the gang wore a lot of basic stuff to more recent appearances of brands like Bode and Denim Tears, there’s a lot to unpack in the show’s style evolution.

IMDB/FX

As somebody who spent quite a few years living just 30 minutes away from ATL (yes Omeretta we know that’s not Atlanta), I’ve had my fair share of the city, and I can tell you right now that Atlanta fashion is definitely a thing.

What is ATL Fashion?
Getty Images

Atlanta fashion can be many things in one. It can be country, and it can be street. It can be subtle, and it can be over the top. It can be casual and glamorous with a little bit of hood sprinkled in. All-in-all, Atlanta the series has done a good job of accurately capturing the ATL style scene and its evolution over the years. Let’s rewind back to the very beginning where it all started.

2016/2017 Atlanta
<code><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/S-sJp1FfG7Q" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></code>

To understand the progression of Atlanta’s show style, we gotta flashback to 2016. Think back to the rap and hip hop scene during that time. Migos were really beginning to take off (pun intended) as “Bad and Boujee,” Desiigner was everywhere with “Panda,” then you had 6LACK, Dreezy, YFN Lucci, and the list goes on.

Braids, locs, and twists have always been a part of southern culture, and when it’s not that, the hairline must be on point. So have chains, grills, tees, denim. Grillz and Trillz also have always been representative of ATL music culture, but as we said earlier, the fashion can be very chill too. That leads us to the first season of Atlanta.

Season 1
<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/p/BL_h-HqDJkL/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

Like we do with all of our television and movie style reviews, we don’t want to spoil the show for anyone that hasn’t seen it, especially since there’s been a rise of people binging on shows that they didn’t watch from the very beginning. So we’re only talking about the style here. Season 1 wasn’t overly gaudy. It was mostly casual attire like jeans, t-shirts, tanks, but chains were much a part of the show. Some Nike. A little New Balance in there as well.

The shoe game was on-point with a mixture of Dunks, AF1s, and plenty of Nikes, which was a testament to their commitment to style because Earnest was frequently homeless, Paper Boi struggles financially, Darius is… Darius. So on and so forth. 

IMDB/FX

Vanessa, Earnest’s girlfriend, also showcases a laid-back casual fashion. While the main characters might have sported a more relaxed style, that wasn’t always the case with some of the other characters in the show (see S1 episode 9 which took place at Primal with NFL players).

And Speaking of Migos, they were also featured in season 1.

Season 2
IMDB/FX

Season 2, aka “robbin season.” So what did we see here? Well, it was called “robbin season” for a reason. The watches were a little nicer, the shades were a little high-end, and the coat and shoe game remained strong with adidas being thrown in the mix some more. Chain game was on point once again. Vanessa remained a bright spot, transitioning her style into more a preppy look, while still keeping her boho roots. Now onto Season 3.

IMDB/FX

IMDB/FX

Season 3
<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/p/CbQEi1aoZGd/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

Earnest’s style really started to come along. In the earlier seasons, you would see him automatically opt for the hoodie and joggers or t-shirt and jeans combo when he wasn’t in a suit and tie, but this season, his casual style advanced a bit. With the gang now in possession of a little more spending money, Earn starts wearing a few higher-end brands, most notably NYC sensation Bode.

Paper Boi, however, took it to the next level, giving flashy a new meaning. In Season 3, we also saw the introduction of higher end brands like Gucci and Burberry, which was also primarily sported by Paper Boi and Darius. Paper Boi also notably dons a bit of Denim Tears in this season, helmed by now creative director of Supreme, Tremaine Emory.

There was also the introduction of Aaron, who sports some of the sickest haircuts we’ve ever seen. Then you had Lorraine whose style was very reflective of her Amsterdam background.

As for Vanessa, she was everywhere. Started in Amsterdam, ended in Paris. Towards the end of the season, Vanessa began to adapt a Parisian style with short bangs and couture-like clothing, while still keeping her hippie roots. A great evolution of both fashion and character development.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/p/Cd1MOWJvmeP/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/p/CdZJVxfvztE/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

Season 4
IMDB/FX

Season 4. The last hurrah. So where are we at now?

<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/p/CjN58m_rhUK/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

This is some of what we’re seeing from Vanessa. Her storyline is wild, but the red passion twists are dope. Earnest hasn’t changed much. Neither has Paper Boi. Or Darius. Or Willy for that matter (Kat Williams).

There’s been a Gunna appearance (and accusations of UNO cheating), and more remains to be seen because the season is still going.

The 20 Best Puffer Jackets For Winter 2022

We’re getting close to puffer jacket season y’all. Is anybody else super excited about this, or is it just us here at ONE37pm? Maybe it’s because the best puffer jackets remind us a lot of the 1990s and 2000s. Or perhaps it’s because they’re super comfy and keep you warm. Maybe it’s because puffer coats are super stylish and versatile because you can create really cool simple looks with them.

RELATED: The 11 Best North Face Jackets For the Winter Season Ahead

Puffers can be paired with jeans, leggings, dress pants, joggers, and you don’t have to stress which top you’re wearing too much because the jacket is going to dominate the look. Puffers are also adaptable to both ice cold winter weather and warmer spring/fall weather because all you have to do is unzip the jacket if you get too hot.

It’s wise to make an investment in a solid winter jacket every couple of years or so, and if you are in need of an update (or just simply want to purchase a new one), we’ve got you covered in the puffer coat category.

How KASHIYAMA Became a Japanese Custom Suit Sensation

I had the pleasure of meeting the KASHIYAMA team a few weeks ago at a pop-up event in uptown Charlotte. There I was introduced to a KASHIYAMA stylist and team member who went through the process of fitting me for a custom women’s suit. This included taking measurements, trying on different pieces to assess what was the best fitting/comfortable, and then we picked out other details such as which color I wanted the suit, the style of buttons, and countless other things I could have never imagined because, well, I’ve never actually had myself fitted for a suit from scratch.

RELATED: The Raf Simons SS23 Show Was All About the Rave Punk

<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/reel/Cix-U1OjrWX/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

I’ve taken my suits to the seamstress to have them adjust, but never from scratch. So who is this cool brand that helped me out so much?

KASHIYAMA is part of a worldwide portfolio of brands beginning with their parent company Onward KASHIYAMA’s tradition of innovation and the introduction of the Hoffman Press in 1948. This allowed for their first success in the mass production of luxury goods, with their traditions carrying on into the 1970s as they developed partnerships with other luxury brands, such as Saint Laurent and Ralph Lauren in Asia.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/p/Cji02mKrskf/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

This history has culminated in the release of KASHIYAMA the Smart Tailor in 2017, creating a new experience for made-to-measure customers through our continued strategic use of technology and innovation.

We spoke with BJ and the team to learn more about KASHIYAMA and their expansion plan.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/reel/Cjah-awsjE-/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

ONE37pm: Great to be chatting with you guys! How did Kashiyama come to be?

BJ: Even if KASHIYAMA is fairly new in the US, its history started almost 100 years ago with our founding in Japan. KASHIYAMA is part of the Onward group who has over 50 fashion brands worldwide. Using the decades of data from these other brands, KASHIYAMA was founded in 2017 for made-to-measure products through our continued strategic use of technology and innovation. We set up our Smart Factory to produce direct to consumer orders with hundreds of selectable custom options and fit specifications.

ONE37pm: What made you decide to come to Charlotte to do your pop-up?

BJ: Our goal is to develop the perfect suit for our clients and our willingness for innovation is bringing us all around the United States to test various markets and meet a broad range of clientele. In our first year we had a temporary store in Charlotte that we closed due to COVID, we still have a lot of clients and aficionados in North Carolina, and we want to continue to give them the true KASHIYAMA experience.

We also know that Charlotte is a hub for business and banking professionals and has many other stylish people looking to dress to impress.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/p/CjVqnFGryoL/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

ONE37pm: Can you tell our audience a little bit more about what you specialize in?

BJ: We specialize in Made-to-Measure and Made-to-Order apparel including men’s and women’s suits, men’s shirts and lastly, we launched our new line of our fully customizable fine jewelry. At the moment, our core business is men suiting where we’ve created over 160 unique fit patterns in-house, compiled from decades of data from hundreds of thousands of pieces.

This fit knowledge has been condensed into the data to allow for the most accurate fits for the most body types. Our company has acquired our production facility and streamlined our garment creation. We now fit over 200,000 clients in Japan alone each year and continue to add many new clients throughout the United States.

ONE37pm: What can we expect in Fall and Winter 2022 from you guys?

BJ: At the end of August, we launched more than 100 new Fall and Winter fabrics that include a lot of exclusive fabrics from all around the world. We reintroduce our line of overcoats and a full new line of Made in Japan shirts. Trend wise, beyond our solid color best sellers, we have introduced a lot of patterns and textures allowing our clientele to express their character and personality during cooler seasons.

You can keep up with all of KASHIYAMA’s latest releases on their website.

Demna Gvasalia’s Creative Path to Balenciaga

Demna Gvasalia’s path to being the creative director of Balenciaga at the young age of 41 has been quite admirable. The world of high fashion is all about your name and reputation, and Demna is arguably the biggest name in fashion. It’s always easy to look at a person’s current trajectory and think their rise to the top was a fast one, but like all major success stories, Demna has put in the time, work, and hustle to get to where he is today. This is his style story.

RELATED: The Raf Simons SS23 Show Was All About the Rave Punk

Getty Images

Early Beginnings
Getty Images

Chapter One of Demna Gvasalia’s life began in Georgia, where he lived until he was forced to flee at age 12—during the 1992-1993 Russo-Georgian war in Abkhazia. He found roots in Tbilisi—where he attended Tbilisi State University majoring in international economic—before moving to Düsseldorf with his family in 2001.

International Economics would later come in handy for the business/analytics side of his career in fashion, whereas his stint at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp (where he received his masters degree in Fashion Design) would later prove helpful as he launched the start of his professional design career.

Career Start
Getty Images

The early years of Demna’s resume includes stints with Belgian fashion designer Walter van Beiren on his men’s collections, a four year stint at Maison Margiela where he was responsible for overseeing the women’s collections, and afterwards, two years at Louis Vuitton where he also responsible for the women’s collections as Senior Designer. Not too shabby of a start if you ask us.

Vetements
<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/p/CjddESYDRue/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

The Vetements chapter of Demna’s career began in 2014, when he officially launched the brand with his brother Guram Gvasalia and a few friends (all of whom had years of experience working with luxury brands and fashion houses). Specializing in luxury clothing that was more laid back, it only took a grand total of three fashion seasons for the brand to become massive, as their approach was methodical, yet unique.

Demna would spend five years at Vetements before leaving the company in 2019. In between that time, Demna would also take on another position…

Balenciaga
Getty Images

One year after launching Vetements, Demna would accept the role of creative director at Balenciaga where he remains today, and is credited with redefining the brand’s design concepts, mission, and individuality. We’ve seen his work on the likes of Kim Kardashian, where he had her covered from head to toe while wearing a mask for the 2021 Met Gala. That same year, Demna also won the Global Women’s Designer award at the CFDA Fashion Awards.

This year, Demna was also named as one of Time 100’s Most Influential People, marking the first time a Georgian has ever been named to the list.

What’s Next?
Getty Images

Balenciaga, Balenciaga, and more Balenciaga! By now it’s well known that Demna regularly challenges the style status quo, so we can expect to see a lot more bold, brash, and beautiful looks and collections in the future.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/p/Ccx-HPkqRh5/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

Now Demna does have an Instagram page, but at the time of this writing he has no posts. However, you can keep up with all things Demna and Balenciaga on the Balenciaga page, which stays far more up to date.

Bad Bunny’s Style is Changing 2020s Fashion

If you’ve been keeping up with the music and entertainment scene, then you already know that nobody’s had a bigger year than Bad Bunny. His fifth studio album Un Verano Sin Ti debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 where it remained for thirteen weeks. He’s projected to be a top nominee and candidate for “Album of the Year” when the 2023 Grammy nominations are announced on November 15th. He made a talked-about appearance in critically acclaimed film Bullet Train this year, and it was just announced that he will star in the 2024 movie El Muerto, a film set in Sony’s Spider-Man universe. On top of all-that, he is a fashion trendsetter. So let’s celebrate Bad Bunny’s style.

RELATED: The Raf Simons SS23 Show Was All About the Rave Punk Scene

Getty Images

Of course, Bad Bunny’s music is predominantly reggaeton and Latin trap. If you’ve ever observed his fashion, you’ll also see that it is very much latin and reggaeton/island influenced, which is a natural seeing as though he was born in the Almirante Sur barrio of Vega Baja, Puerto Rico. It’s quite simply in his blood.

Now, this is the first time we’ve seen reggaeton and latin music (and its fashion trends) crossover to the top of the U.S. charts. There was Gloria Estefan who at her peak in the 1980s and 1990s was known as the “Queen of Latin Pop,” and had a unique sense of style.

Getty Images

Then you had Selena in the 90s, whose album Amor Prohibido went on to become the fastest selling Latin album of all-time, and as we all know, Selena is a fashion icon.

Getty Images

There was also the “Latin Explosion” of 1999 which saw Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Iglesias, Marc Anthony, Christina Aguilera, etc., dominating the charts pretty much all at the same time.

Getty Images

Getty Images

Getty Images

Getty Images

And then there was Daddy Yankee in the 2000s, and Pitbull who started achieving mainstream success towards the end of the 2000s plus more.

Getty Images

Getty Images

Each of these artists had culturally-influenced standout fashion moments to go along with their various chart successes. The same is true of Bad Bunny, who always pays tribute to his roots in one way or another.

For example, in the video for “Tití Me Preguntó,” (which looks like it was filmed in the Bronx), you can see some of the background dancers wearing festival/parade costumes. Then if you take a look at the party scene in the video for his single “Me Porto Bonito” featuring Chenco Corleone, you can spot Bad Bunny wearing a sheer lime green and black top paired with jeans and sunglasses.

<code><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/saGYMhApaH8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></code>

Here’s some more of our favorite style moments from Bad Bunny:

This yellow denim get up from his concert in San Juan

Getty Images

His green overalls from the same show.

Getty Images

This all-red fit from Made in America.

Getty Images

This laid-back pink look from his World’s Hottest tour.

You see, island and caribbean style is all about colors, patterns, and garments. It’s bold, daring, and challenges the norm. It’s full of confidence and swag. It represents your individuality and culture. It’s you. 

Bad Bunny’s sense of style is unmatched because it’s uniquely him. And we love it.

The Raf Simons SS23 Show Was All About the Rave Punk Scene

Raf Simons made his London debut in a way that only he could. Colorful, cutting-edge, and gothic/punk-rock to the max, the Belgian designer proved that his long-awaited U.K. debut was indeed worth the wait. A minimalist yet standout show, this collection was all about the energy of dance, and its impact on the body.

Mature, sexy, sultry, and fun, the event took place at South London’s Printworks venue, dazzling a crowd of over 1,000. DJ Clara 3000 was the designated DJ in charge, filling the venue with electric heart-thumping music as the models bared, stripped, and cutaway in what was a reduction to the body’s essential form.

RELATED: MM6 Maison Margiela SS23 Was A Visual Masterpiece

Raf Simons

Capitalizing on its ornamental and progressive design aesthetics that have led to even more of a dedicated following—in part due to the brand’s huge collaborations—the SS23 show was all about showcasing simplicity in radical fashion.

Tailored blazers, biker jackets, and sliced tank tops were just some of the many groundbreaking pieces displayed during the rave/fashion show combo, with intricate details such as fine-gauge knit and stocking fabric delicately pressed in the skin amongst other features showcased.

Raf Simons

1980s style belts and buckles were also one of the biggest draws of the night, paying homage to legendary U.K. acts of that time period—from the Police to Depeche Mode.

The exquisite art of tailoring was on full display as well, with classic wool fits being highlighted and manipulated to elongate and complement the torso, along with tailored trousers and skirts, many of which were accompanied by punk jewelry designed to be both reminders of humanity, and symbols of enjoyment. Speaking of enjoyment, Raf Simons SS23 also showcased playful garments such as colorful leggings and playful playsuits.  

Raf Simons

Additionally, this SS23 collection debuts a collaboration with the estate of Belgian Painter Philippe Vandenberg. This included carefully curated artworks contextualized as all-over prints on garments and accessories, with a focus on the artist’s text works, translated handwriting, and impactful messages that make you stop, think, and listen to the world around you. The pieces from the Spring/Summer 2023 collection featuring the work of Philippe Vandenberg will be co-labelled RAF SIMONS / PHILIPPE VANDENBERG.

If there’s anything to be taken from Raf’s show, it’s that next spring and summer will be about clubbing at raves in punk rock attire from all eras. And we can’t wait.
