Fashion News: DON C sits with GQ to discuss the JUST Don brand and inspiration

24 Aug

Designer Don C sits down with GQ’s style editor Will Welch to explain the inspiration and creation of his famous JustDon snakeskin baseball caps. Chicago native Don explains how the idea of the “buck fifty” cap originated in his home town. Originally worn by drug dealers in the late 70’s & 80’s, Don C tried to sell the idea to companies but no one would produce the idea. So in 2011 he decided to take it upon himself to recreate the classic hat that originally costed $150 ((hence the name “buck fifty”)). The hats are available at Kith NYC, Barneys, RSVP Gallery & JustDON.com

Fashion: Allen Onyia & The Wonder of Wanderluste Co.

16 Jul

  In street fashion and culture there are barely any designers who have come to the table and presented things that actually made sense (I’m glad this article isn’t about that). But designer and founder of Upscalehype.com Allen Onyia has offered up some classic pieces that are sure to make every mans closet pop. These pieces were not only designed with great thought and understanding, but also decently priced in a market that charges its customers hundreds of dollars without any reasoning on basic essentials like a t-shirt. In all honesty we feel as though Woanderluste has not yet gotten the credit that it deserves. They have stuck to fashion tradition in the color selections, while still keeping the garments fresh and eye catching with clean silhouettes. Wanderluste has done what very few brands have done in the past, and that is create pieces that can go with any other pieces ((shorts/slacks/denim)). We have high hopes to see what the Wanderluste brand is cooking up for its next collection we’re looking forward to seeing what’s next for Allen and Wanderluste. You can purchase Wanderluste items at Allenonyia.com
