Neon Jacket by Maria Escote

Maria Escote is a designer that doesn't usually hold back...thankfully. The results: an eye-catching biker that departs from the typical (black). Color on!

Jeremy Scott by Luca Finotti--video

I've watched this video several times without the music--on mute--and am completely taken in. It's so engrossing. Why no music? I guess I figure there is enough going on visually without the added distraction. I just don't think I've seen the use of horizontal edits in such a way--and the colors...It seems to me to be a perfect marriage of image, medium, and edit--ripe for online consumption. Of course, the Jeremy Scott designs give it that extra bit of flavor, but Luca Finotti has really created an eye catching clip with this video.

Zero_Underscore zip-away

This multi-functional jacket (longer/shorter) can be adjusted via zipper. I happen to enjoy the "partially-zipped" look as seen below. All the pieces in the latest Zero_Underscore collection are sharp. See more HERE on Fashionisto.

Black Means Spring/Summer 2012

Tokyo label, Black Means, has an edge and a DIY aesthetic that has been evolving since its founding in 2005. Their forte is the leather bike jackets, as seen below (notice the great color). But I am excited by the accessories for the legs--the knee and shin covers with a samurai/cyber-punk vibe. See more of the current collection HERE on Selectism. You can also read more about Black Means and see a bit more of their pieces HERE on CVLTnation

Beau Homme

The Future looks comfortable. There is much I enjoy with this collection from Beau Homme (Justin Mansfield and George Bunker). But mainly I'm drawn to the casual rigidity--makes me think of a futuristic dandy with a look back onto new romanticism. Smartly done. See more from the Lookbook HERE on the Beau Homme site
