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 : The importance of OFF—White

3 Mar

The Off-White brand is way more important to culture in general for so many reasons. I say culture and not fashion or streetwear brand because Off-white has evolved into something way more than most would have expected it to. From the amazing craftsmanship, to the industrial feel that each piece presents it all comes together quite well. This year Abathingx.com will NOT focus on the “hype”, this year we will be driving the site based on originality and innovations that is lacking in most creative circles (fashion/music/art etc.). And what a better way start our 2015 (in March) than with Virgil Abloh and his Off–White production! 

Now there was a gaping hole in the fashion world that needed to be filled and with people like Virgil we will not have anything to worry about moving forward. From the ever-evolving classic oversized plaid flannels, to the masterful layering of pieces in this third collection Off-White has solidified its presence in culture. Moving forward we are hoping to see even cooler collections and more innovative waves of OFF-White. You can get a closer look at the newest Off-White collection below or at OFF—WHITE.com
