He provides a fusion of modern proportions and innovative design; crossing class, ethnicity and gender boundaries into highly functional garments for all.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> With the launch of <a href="https://www.sevenstore.com/brands/homme-plisse-issey-miyake-/">Homme Pliss&eacute; Issey Miyake</a> sub-label in 2013 &ndash; a menswear sibling to Issey Miyake&rsquo;s successful women&rsquo;s line, Pleats Please, Miyake realised there was huge male interest in his pleats line. Homme &lsquo;Pliss&eacute;&rsquo; is derived from the technique used to give a permanent puckered or crinkled effect used by Miyake since 1988. The fabric is cut into the garments shape then it is pleated, in contrast to the conventional method of pleating a fabric and then cutting it into the design.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> The beauty lies in the versatility of this collection, somewhat smart and casual. The pleated trousers offer comfort for long-haul travel or can be switched up and worn with a blazer for a smart event. Re-iterating that Miyake&rsquo;s fundamentals cross class, ethnicity and gender boundaries, the Homme Pliss&eacute; collection is for all ages and origins, inspiring people to express their own individuality.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Always looking towards the future, whilst his clothes may well outlast cheaper items on the market, Miyake makes them better value in the long run as well as making them more economically and environmentally efficient. His output looks to the future of tomorrow, a fast-paced approach to travel, without time to iron or steam, permanently pleated collections arrive with crease-resistant fabrication.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> It is a continuation of Issey Miyake&rsquo;s ability to produce intricate design. These intricacies boost quality and practicality, making trans-seasonal pieces stand the test of time.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> The first flagship store for <a href="https://www.sevenstore.com/brands/homme-plisse-issey-miyake-/">Homme Pliss&eacute;</a> based in Tokyo famed the pleating technology with a machine that will micro-pleat items of clothing in lightweight fabric. A nod to the interesting and surprising nature of the brand from store designer, Tokujin Yoshioka.

A collection adorned with sustainable printing made in Isfahan, Iran. Natural dyes using Turmeric and Saffron &ndash; washed in the river and dried in the Iranian sun built the base for a forward-thinking traditional print.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/LFWM2020/PARIA1.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> Sitting alongside a number of GORE-TEX offerings, Farzaneh continued to push into a realm of sustainability with the use of Thermore insulation from recycled plastic bottles and fish netting made from recycled plastic yarns forming military and utilitarian-inspired items. A collection presented with functionality at the forefront, accompanying show notes explained that &ldquo;in a fast-paced environment, we need to be prepared for environmental, social, and community factors that we face on a daily basis. While unaware of what we are preparing for, or what tomorrow brings, a sense of confidence, practicality and awareness, ready for our next expedition.&rdquo;<br /> <br /> Images by Photographer <a href="https://www.dazeddigital.com/fashion/gallery/28316/6/paria-farzaneh-aw20">Christinia Fragkou</a>&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <span class="decor">Bethany Williams</span><br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/LFWM2020/bw1.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> Winner of the British Emerging Talent Menswear at the Fashion Awards 2019, Bethany Williams brought her &lsquo;No Recourse to Public Funds&rsquo; Autumn/Winter 2020 show to Brick Lane; an area not too far from Newham, a place where the largest number of women and children are in temporary accommodation in London. A signifier for Bethany Williams, a problem in which not only informs her work, but a theme which she can channel money made from the clothes back into.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/LFWM2020/bw12.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> Fashion has the ability to amplify ideas onto the bigger stage and Williams does so. Recycled materials, craft techniques and garment construction from children&rsquo;s clothing shape the collection of wide-legged trousers and shrunken tops. It&rsquo;s a collection of cheerful colours hoping to create a visible change within society. A creation into a mindful approach taking consideration into sustainability and social impact.<br /> <br /> Images by Photographer <a href="https://www.10magazine.com/menswear/bethany-williams-menswear-aw20/">Jason Lloyd-Evans</a><br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span class="decor">Nicholas Daley</span><br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/LFWM2020/nd1.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> Informed by the world of experimental jazz and psychedelic rock gives Nicholas Daley&rsquo;s AW20 collection a soundtrack.

Settled in the heart of this comes Vyner Street, famous for transforming the East London art scene, it is built on the fundamentals of galleries and street art. Nestled in this creative patch is the birth place of clothing brand, Vyner Articles.</p> <p>Born while commuting between Helsinki, London and Italy; Heikki Solonen, founder and Creative Director of Vyner Articles eventually resided in the British capital with a scope to dedicate his focus to the menswear wardrobe, as opposed to his previous workings under the womenswear realm.</p> <p>First and foremost, Heikki Salonen is known as womenswear designer. After graduating from the prestigious Royal College of Art in London in 2008, Heikki established his own namesake label focusing on tailor-made clothing challenging and reshaping the traditional representation of women. Five years at Diesel followed from this, a succession into a role provoking new forms of designing for women from a male perspective. A dangerous prospect, treading unchartered ground into a fine line of over doing it or simply not doing enough.</p> </div> <div class="right-content"><q>&rdquo;Everything relates back to clothing, anything comes back to clothing.

Erasing himself from the constraints of his namesake brand helped him push boundaries into the community; with events, dinners and exhibitions all taking place in the home/studio space that Heikki has made for himself to create from. Putting himself in such an environment has blurred the lines between him as the designer with his neighbours and his friends, all of whom touch on creative output for Vyner.</p> <p>Working with friends and like-minded individuals is a common trend in the fundamentals of Heikki&rsquo;s approach, &ldquo;Your private space is kind of going solo, fashion is about the team and how you work with the team and I love that.&rdquo; His studio is made up of people he has previously worked with in Margiela as well as friends and other creatives. They no longer get offended by his weird personality quirks or become overwhelmed with spending such a great amount of time with. This experience has added to the organic nature of creation and gives people the freedom to explore ideas without a deep concern of others opinions.</p> <p>This sense of togetherness is imposed through Heikki&rsquo;s approach to the working day, citing Alexander McQueen&rsquo;s first days at Givenchy where ateliers would never eat with designers or attend eventual shows. This sense of division really resonated with Heikki and shaped his approach to do the exact opposite, helping create a basis of identity for Vyner Articles.</p> <p>&ldquo;I think it&rsquo;s important to live your life as well. The worst designer is spending every week in the office and not going out and understand what&rsquo;s going on in the world. I think it&rsquo;s really important to do something you love, that is not clothing. Everything relates back to clothing, anything comes back to clothing. Whatever you do in your life it helps you to create.&rdquo; A notion that stimulates the brain and brings together a good working environment for Heikki and his staff, inspired from the founder of Patagonia - Yvon Chouinard. A man celebrated by being a founder and a friend, allowing staff members to bring animals into the office and give permission for surfing trips during working hours. All of which contributed to a positive free-flowing working environment but also undoubtedly had an optimistic effect on the creative aspect of Patagonia. Employees were simply shaping their lives and working, not overly dominating days spent in the studio. A concept Heikki is willingly to push into his work with Vyner and beyond.</p> </div> </section> <section id="blogImageryTwo"><!-- #5 Blog Imagery --> <div class="flex-row wrapper"><picture> <source media="(min-width: 650px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Large1-545pxx806px.jpg" /> <source media="(min-width: 465px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Large1-545pxx806px.jpg" /> <img alt="Grid 1" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Large1-545pxx806px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <source media="(min-width: 650px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Large2-545pxx806px.jpg" /> <source media="(min-width: 465px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Large2-545pxx806px.jpg" /> <img alt="Grid 1" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Large2-545pxx806px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <div class="flex-column"><picture> <source media="(min-width: 650px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Small1-230pxx363px.jpg" /> <source media="(min-width: 465px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Small1-230pxx363px.jpg" /> <img alt="Grid 1" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Small1-230pxx363px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <source media="(min-width: 650px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_5BlogImagery-Small2230pxx363px.jpg " /> <source media="(min-width: 465px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_5BlogImagery-Small2230pxx363px.jpg" /> <img alt="Grid 1" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_5BlogImagery-Small2230pxx363px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture></div> </div> </section> <section class="flex-row" id="blogPartTwo"> <div class="content wrapper"><!-- #6 Blog Content --> <p>Heikki&rsquo;s most recent assignment saw him reach heights of becoming the creative director of Maison Margiela&rsquo;s MM6 line. Converging into his familiar territory; influences and personality are a catalyst to his design. A thought that Martin&rsquo;s (Margiela) personality is still engrossed in the house has undoubtedly reverberated with Heikki.</p> <p>&ldquo;What I really love about Martin&rsquo;s work is that now I can really learn about his references. That he really loves Andy Warhol and Yoko Ono. When you read about them, they were about other people and more other people. Now I understand why I was drawn to his work as he has a similar idea to be with people and how to respect people. I think it&rsquo;s interesting, that it&rsquo;s not necessarily aesthetics what you see, but it&rsquo;s much deeper.&rdquo;</p> <p>Even though they are two very different workings, MM6 and Vyner place well in Heikki&rsquo;s approach to designing. His &ldquo;Everything effects everything&rdquo; approach is compared to the way Louise Bourgeois works, &ldquo;They are always laughing how I work, when I&rsquo;m sketching I usually have a documentary on, another something there and its really chaotic. Then I read about Louise Bourgeois and she does the same. Usually music, and television on, so much noise around.&rdquo; His extensive research through books, videos and music allow him to dig deeper and shape his workings in both brands. But it is never dismissed that both brands are in two very different worlds. The avant-garde womenswear works in MM6, but Vyner is a completely wrong context to do it in.</p> <p>Driving design forward can sometimes come with its limitations and setbacks, for example, a huge talking point in the world of fashion today is sustainability. Heikki and Vyner knew from day one that the brand must be built on the fundamentals of sustainability and organic materials, &ldquo;There is no other way. It has to be the standard. That&rsquo;s how things should be done from this point on. How to produce more stuff if it&rsquo;s not done this way. I think everybody needs to be there within 5 years&rsquo; time, at least this is how it feels now. I think it has to happen. I think we are already late.&rdquo; The issue is only going to get better with time, most recently adidas, Nike and Prada are buying into sustainability, conveying it through product to consumers. A movement which should inspire others to look in the same direction.</p> <p>Brands new and old have taught and influenced the craft of Vyner Articles. Being obsessed with designers and clothing from a young age allowed Heikki to replicate the workings of the people he admired. But nowadays it&rsquo;s not so much an obsession that is driving him, but a different outlook from the designer&rsquo;s point of view. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s really hard to relate to when every brand does the same sneaker. I think, for me, the stories are most important. The relationships you see&rdquo;, Heikki explains. This is not only an emphasis on his community and relationship spirit but an ode to the backstories, designers, and the coming together of two stories to make such a garment or collection. Particularly, drawing on the work Craig Green has been doing with Robbie Spencer, the designs of Green co-exist with stories that have shaped and formulated Robbie Spencer&rsquo;s work. Making it a cohesive project with deper meaning.</p> <p>Admirations for such peers is, and always will inform Heikki&rsquo;s work. &ldquo;I think Raf (Simons) is doing it beautifully, its beyond. It&rsquo;s not just clothing, you can really feel a sense of building a community, though it&rsquo;s kind of worldwide. You really share similar values.&rdquo; Really fitting into the language of meaning behind a purpose, and Raf has that, along with his admiration of fellow London based designer, Martine Rose. Heikki pays a huge respect to these designers who don&rsquo;t follow a trend or simply put clothes out based on consumer needs, but follow their own design language - understanding that it&rsquo;s still paramount to be commercially aware in this day and age. Being commercially aware and sticking to your design values is championed in the British capital. A sense that people like Craig Green, Martine Rose and Heikki himself believe they have the power to change things - doing it their own way and not adhering to the status-quo that fashion has built up.</p> <p>Vyner Articles is built on the unrestricted spirit of the community it inhabits, a centre-piece for creation through the inspirations in the world of creative designer, Heikki Solenon. Expect a showcase of retro artistry with an emphasis on music or even poetry through the unconventional lens.</p> <a class="https://www.sevenstore.com/brands/vyner-articles-/" href="/">SHOP THE COLLECTION HERE</a></div> </section> <section id="blogImageryThree" style="background-image: linear-gradient(rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.8), rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.8)), url(http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_7BlogImagery-Background-1466pxx946px.jpg);"><!-- #7 Blog Imagery --> <div class="flex-row"> <h2>VYNER ARTICLES</h2> </div> <div class="flex-row wrapper"><picture> <img alt="Grid 1" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image1420pxx441px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 2" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image220pxx441px.jpg " style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 3" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image3420pxx441px.jpg " style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 4" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image4420pxx441px.jpg " style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 5" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image5420pxx441px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 6" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image6420pxx441px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 7" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image7420pxx441px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 8" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7Blog%20Imagery-Image8420pxx441px.jpg " style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 9" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image9420pxx441px.jpg " style="width:auto;" /> </picture></div> <div class="fa-row wrapper"> <h3 class="blogTitle">&nbsp;</h3> <h4 class="blogSubTitle">&nbsp;</h4> <a class="https://www.sevenstore.com/brands/vyner-articles-/" href="#">SHOP THE COLLECTION HERE</a></div> </section> </article> <script> var blogTitle = '';

Settled in the heart of this comes Vyner Street, famous for transforming the East London art scene, it is built on the fundamentals of galleries and street art. Nestled in this creative patch is the birth place of clothing brand, Vyner Articles.</p> <p>Born while commuting between Helsinki, London and Italy; Heikki Solonen, founder and Creative Director of Vyner Articles eventually resided in the British capital with a scope to dedicate his focus to the menswear wardrobe, as opposed to his previous workings under the womenswear realm.</p> <p>First and foremost, Heikki Salonen is known as womenswear designer. After graduating from the prestigious Royal College of Art in London in 2008, Heikki established his own namesake label focusing on tailor-made clothing challenging and reshaping the traditional representation of women. Five years at Diesel followed from this, a succession into a role provoking new forms of designing for women from a male perspective. A dangerous prospect, treading unchartered ground into a fine line of over doing it or simply not doing enough.</p> </div> <div class="right-content"><q>&rdquo;Everything relates back to clothing, anything comes back to clothing.

Erasing himself from the constraints of his namesake brand helped him push boundaries into the community; with events, dinners and exhibitions all taking place in the home/studio space that Heikki has made for himself to create from. Putting himself in such an environment has blurred the lines between him as the designer with his neighbours and his friends, all of whom touch on creative output for Vyner.</p> <p>Working with friends and like-minded individuals is a common trend in the fundamentals of Heikki&rsquo;s approach, &ldquo;Your private space is kind of going solo, fashion is about the team and how you work with the team and I love that.&rdquo; His studio is made up of people he has previously worked with in Margiela as well as friends and other creatives. They no longer get offended by his weird personality quirks or become overwhelmed with spending such a great amount of time with. This experience has added to the organic nature of creation and gives people the freedom to explore ideas without a deep concern of others opinions.</p> <p>This sense of togetherness is imposed through Heikki&rsquo;s approach to the working day, citing Alexander McQueen&rsquo;s first days at Givenchy where ateliers would never eat with designers or attend eventual shows. This sense of division really resonated with Heikki and shaped his approach to do the exact opposite, helping create a basis of identity for Vyner Articles.</p> <p>&ldquo;I think it&rsquo;s important to live your life as well. The worst designer is spending every week in the office and not going out and understand what&rsquo;s going on in the world. I think it&rsquo;s really important to do something you love, that is not clothing. Everything relates back to clothing, anything comes back to clothing. Whatever you do in your life it helps you to create.&rdquo; A notion that stimulates the brain and brings together a good working environment for Heikki and his staff, inspired from the founder of Patagonia - Yvon Chouinard. A man celebrated by being a founder and a friend, allowing staff members to bring animals into the office and give permission for surfing trips during working hours. All of which contributed to a positive free-flowing working environment but also undoubtedly had an optimistic effect on the creative aspect of Patagonia. Employees were simply shaping their lives and working, not overly dominating days spent in the studio. A concept Heikki is willingly to push into his work with Vyner and beyond.</p> </div> </section> <section id="blogImageryTwo"><!-- #5 Blog Imagery --> <div class="flex-row wrapper"><picture> <source media="(min-width: 650px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Large1-545pxx806px.jpg" /> <source media="(min-width: 465px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Large1-545pxx806px.jpg" /> <img alt="Grid 1" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Large1-545pxx806px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <source media="(min-width: 650px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Large2-545pxx806px.jpg" /> <source media="(min-width: 465px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Large2-545pxx806px.jpg" /> <img alt="Grid 1" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Large2-545pxx806px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <div class="flex-column"><picture> <source media="(min-width: 650px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Small1-230pxx363px.jpg" /> <source media="(min-width: 465px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Small1-230pxx363px.jpg" /> <img alt="Grid 1" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_5BlogImagery-Small1-230pxx363px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <source media="(min-width: 650px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_5BlogImagery-Small2230pxx363px.jpg " /> <source media="(min-width: 465px)" srcset="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_5BlogImagery-Small2230pxx363px.jpg" /> <img alt="Grid 1" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_5BlogImagery-Small2230pxx363px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture></div> </div> </section> <section class="flex-row" id="blogPartTwo"> <div class="content wrapper"><!-- #6 Blog Content --> <p>Heikki&rsquo;s most recent assignment saw him reach heights of becoming the creative director of Maison Margiela&rsquo;s MM6 line. Converging into his familiar territory; influences and personality are a catalyst to his design. A thought that Martin&rsquo;s (Margiela) personality is still engrossed in the house has undoubtedly reverberated with Heikki.</p> <p>&ldquo;What I really love about Martin&rsquo;s work is that now I can really learn about his references. That he really loves Andy Warhol and Yoko Ono. When you read about them, they were about other people and more other people. Now I understand why I was drawn to his work as he has a similar idea to be with people and how to respect people. I think it&rsquo;s interesting, that it&rsquo;s not necessarily aesthetics what you see, but it&rsquo;s much deeper.&rdquo;</p> <p>Even though they are two very different workings, MM6 and Vyner place well in Heikki&rsquo;s approach to designing. His &ldquo;Everything effects everything&rdquo; approach is compared to the way Louise Bourgeois works, &ldquo;They are always laughing how I work, when I&rsquo;m sketching I usually have a documentary on, another something there and its really chaotic. Then I read about Louise Bourgeois and she does the same. Usually music, and television on, so much noise around.&rdquo; His extensive research through books, videos and music allow him to dig deeper and shape his workings in both brands. But it is never dismissed that both brands are in two very different worlds. The avant-garde womenswear works in MM6, but Vyner is a completely wrong context to do it in.</p> <p>Driving design forward can sometimes come with its limitations and setbacks, for example, a huge talking point in the world of fashion today is sustainability. Heikki and Vyner knew from day one that the brand must be built on the fundamentals of sustainability and organic materials, &ldquo;There is no other way. It has to be the standard. That&rsquo;s how things should be done from this point on. How to produce more stuff if it&rsquo;s not done this way. I think everybody needs to be there within 5 years&rsquo; time, at least this is how it feels now. I think it has to happen. I think we are already late.&rdquo; The issue is only going to get better with time, most recently adidas, Nike and Prada are buying into sustainability, conveying it through product to consumers. A movement which should inspire others to look in the same direction.</p> <p>Brands new and old have taught and influenced the craft of Vyner Articles. Being obsessed with designers and clothing from a young age allowed Heikki to replicate the workings of the people he admired. But nowadays it&rsquo;s not so much an obsession that is driving him, but a different outlook from the designer&rsquo;s point of view. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s really hard to relate to when every brand does the same sneaker. I think, for me, the stories are most important. The relationships you see&rdquo;, Heikki explains. This is not only an emphasis on his community and relationship spirit but an ode to the backstories, designers, and the coming together of two stories to make such a garment or collection. Particularly, drawing on the work Craig Green has been doing with Robbie Spencer, the designs of Green co-exist with stories that have shaped and formulated Robbie Spencer&rsquo;s work. Making it a cohesive project with deper meaning.</p> <p>Admirations for such peers is, and always will inform Heikki&rsquo;s work. &ldquo;I think Raf (Simons) is doing it beautifully, its beyond. It&rsquo;s not just clothing, you can really feel a sense of building a community, though it&rsquo;s kind of worldwide. You really share similar values.&rdquo; Really fitting into the language of meaning behind a purpose, and Raf has that, along with his admiration of fellow London based designer, Martine Rose. Heikki pays a huge respect to these designers who don&rsquo;t follow a trend or simply put clothes out based on consumer needs, but follow their own design language - understanding that it&rsquo;s still paramount to be commercially aware in this day and age. Being commercially aware and sticking to your design values is championed in the British capital. A sense that people like Craig Green, Martine Rose and Heikki himself believe they have the power to change things - doing it their own way and not adhering to the status-quo that fashion has built up.</p> <p>Vyner Articles is built on the unrestricted spirit of the community it inhabits, a centre-piece for creation through the inspirations in the world of creative designer, Heikki Solenon. Expect a showcase of retro artistry with an emphasis on music or even poetry through the unconventional lens.</p> <a class="https://www.sevenstore.com/brands/vyner-articles-/" href="/">SHOP THE COLLECTION HERE</a></div> </section> <section id="blogImageryThree" style="background-image: linear-gradient(rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.8), rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.8)), url(http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner/Vyners_7BlogImagery-Background-1466pxx946px.jpg);"><!-- #7 Blog Imagery --> <div class="flex-row"> <h2>VYNER ARTICLES</h2> </div> <div class="flex-row wrapper"><picture> <img alt="Grid 1" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image1420pxx441px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 2" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image220pxx441px.jpg " style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 3" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image3420pxx441px.jpg " style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 4" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image4420pxx441px.jpg " style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 5" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image5420pxx441px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 6" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image6420pxx441px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 7" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image7420pxx441px.jpg" style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 8" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7Blog%20Imagery-Image8420pxx441px.jpg " style="width:auto;" /> </picture> <picture> <img alt="Grid 9" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/vyner2/VYNER2_7BlogImagery-Image9420pxx441px.jpg " style="width:auto;" /> </picture></div> <div class="fa-row wrapper"> <h3 class="blogTitle">&nbsp;</h3> <h4 class="blogSubTitle">&nbsp;</h4> <a class="https://www.sevenstore.com/brands/vyner-articles-/" href="#">SHOP THE COLLECTION HERE</a></div> </section> </article> 0 ADIDAS ORIGINALS GORE-TEX INFINIUM PACK http://www.sevenstore.comhttps://www.sevenstore.com/editorial/adidas-originals-gore-tex-infinium-pack/ http://www.sevenstore.comhttps://www.sevenstore.com/editorial/adidas-originals-gore-tex-infinium-pack/#comments Tues, 26 Nov 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.sevenstore.com/editorial/adidas-originals-gore-tex-infinium-pack/ <a href="https://www.sevenstore.com/brands/adidas/"><img alt="" src="https://www.sevenstore.com/brands/adidas/" />adidas</a> Originals are set to release a pack of classic silhouettes infused with GORE-TEX INFINIUM technology.<br /> <br /> <a href="https://www.sevenstore.com/footwearplusplussneakers/adidas-off-whitechalk-white-energyplus-superstar-sneaker/"><img alt="" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/energypack/superstar.jpg" /></a><br /> &nbsp;<br /> The collection includes an iconic iteration of the <a href="https://www.sevenstore.com/footwearplusplussneakers/adidas-off-whitechalk-white-energyplus-superstar-sneaker/">Superstar</a> - focusing on new technology, tonal branding makes up the minimalistic look of the sneaker with a debossed GORE-TEX logo and heel tab.

By doing so, the exhibition explores the designer language of menswear, focusing on the replication of functional garments intended for specific industrial, technical or military use.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Set in Westminster University&rsquo;s Ambika P3 space and put together by their very own Professor Andrew Groves. The collection is a representation and education into menswear; a teaching tool for students to support their design practice and to inspire knowledge around the subject, its history, materiality and social meaning.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/Mensweararchive/ARCHIVE%20NAMED%201.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> Once a design assistant for Alexander McQueen, Professor Andrew Groves says, &ldquo;We are beginning to now tell the untold story of menswear&rdquo;, a view that is cemented in his position of Professor of Fashion Design and has been since the beginning of his days scouring eBay for items that would eventually make up this archive.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Starting the Westminster Menswear Archive in 2016 was born out of frustration. Students and designers in the industry were unable to see historically important examples of menswear, an idea which saw the marginalisation of menswear and how it is significantly underrepresented in comparison to its female counterpart.<br /> <br /> <a href="https://www.sevenstore.com/brands/a-cold-wall/"><img alt="" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/Mensweararchive/ARCHIVE%20NAMED%202.jpg" /></a><br /> &nbsp;<br /> Opening up to the public for four weeks, Invisible Men exhibits over 170 pieces from an archive made up of 1700 artefacts. This is only a snapshot of the archive and a belief that people will leave the exhibition having seen something unexpected. It is not a portrayal of the best designs from the archive - but an equally valid reminder that the curators have communicated that menswear shouldn&rsquo;t be put on a pedestal, but somewhat celebrate the diverse mix of designer and non-designer garments that are on offer.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Groves and his fellow curator Dr Danielle Sprecher have selected garments that illustrate how menswear designers use practical uniforms as points of reference for their own designs. A key piece from the collection is a reinterpretation of a railway worker&rsquo;s high-vis utility coat which appeared in a runway collection for Burberry. &ldquo;The Burberry-embossed poppers and the signature jacquard lining &ndash; that transform it into high fashion.&rdquo; Within the exhibit, Comme des Gar&ccedil;ons Print Overalls and a CP Company LED Jacket are displayed alongside labouring, military and police uniforms, presenting relations and influences between the two.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/Mensweararchive/ARCHIVE%20NAMED%203.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> Noting the influence that uniform informs a designer&rsquo;s mind, the exhibition holds a special section devoted to the C.P Company Urban Protection range that was launched in 1998. &ldquo;Designer Moreno Ferrari created garments that featured gas detectors, microcomputers, lights, torches, inflatable cushions, scooters and even a cape that transformed into a hammock,&rdquo; explains Groves. Ferrari&rsquo;s approach has been vital in prioritising utility, transcending it into seasonal trends today.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> One of the biggest sections of the exhibition was dedicated to the former colleague of Professor Groves; renowned British designer Alexander McQueen, covering his early menswear designs from 1997 to 1999. But up until now his early collections have remained almost invisible, no examples have been presented at relevant exhibitions meaning the connection between his menswear training in tailoring and his future visions for womenswear remained unexplored. Being a prominent figure in British fashion, the inclusion of such collections from Alexander McQueen can finally shape a different scope of learning for future designers.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/Mensweararchive/ARCHIVE%20NAMED%204.jpg" /><br /> <br /> As far as trend setting goes today, Stone Island are always at the forefront of innovative design and materiality. A symbol of this collection is a special 1982 Zeltbahn Cape made by the Italian brand. This item acts under the umbrella of concealment and invisibility, somewhat touching on the overall of concept of the Invisible Men archive.<br /> <br /> Ultimately, Professor Groves is doing it for the students and future designers of the next generation.

It was only after taking on a six month course in graphic design and web design in 2002 that I found my professional and passionate path in life. From there, Oh Yeah Studio was established in 2009 with my girlfriend, Christina. It has developed from a hobby-project into what it is today; a multidisciplinary design studio.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> In the beginnings it was just a playground where we could be creative without clients.

It has been lots of mistakes and many years of working 15-hour days and weekends. I looked at it as a hobby and just wanted to create, explore and evolve.

Starting the musical odyssey in our home of Liverpool, a city that has cut large parts of its fashion identity through adidas Originals discovery and celebration, the 10&rsquo;&rsquo; will feature the music of local Liverpool rapper MC NELSON &ndash; an artist whose stark lyricism paints a picture of contemporary Liverpool and the reverberating echoes of its past.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/CitySeries/adidas-City-Series-Liverpool.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Nelson, the first of four artists on the record, gives us his take on Liverpool and how it has informed his musical practice.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> I grew up in South Liverpool. In Aigburth, predominantly, in touching distance of the river. The places where it sweeps round, down by Otterspool on the promenade. The landscape there is a huge part of my childhood memories. I have quite a strong affinity for the entirety of South Liverpool. In the South, there&#39;s a lot more breathing space; you&#39;re never too far from greenery or the river. For me, it&#39;s a landscape that offers so many opportunities for reflection.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> I first started writing lyrics when I was really young. Like, really young. Some of them were borderline gibberish; basically just words that rhyme. You know, the mechanics of writing, song structure and flow can be quite hard to pull together, regardless of the content. It takes work. When I started making a conscious effort on the content of my lyrics &ndash; &nbsp;that being the thing that was going to set me apart from other musicians in the city, the other rappers &ndash; &nbsp;then it was more about reflecting my surroundings and telling the story of Liverpool in a way that other people weren&rsquo;t doing.&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> At the point in my career where I released By The River, I wasn&#39;t overly aware of the other local rappers that had gone before me. It was great to discover. You know, all the early 2000s Liverpool rap that had a serious conscious edge to it. My attitude and approach to rapping is, quite strangely, a continuation of that, without knowing anything about it when I was making music. It&#39;s only recently as I&#39;ve met more people in the scene now, those like First In Command, that were doing a similarly consciously edged thing. There&rsquo;s a strong continuity. I feel it&#39;s something that resides in the South Liverpool energy. It&rsquo;s an outlook that I&#39;ve subconsciously delivered without ever using the music as a reference point. It&#39;s quite weird, but something that speaks a lot about the shared feelings in the city and the music it can inspire. It wasn&#39;t so much a case of regurgitating the musicians I was listening to in a Scousified sort of way. It was a process of subconsciously taking on their traits and doing it in my own way. So&nbsp;there&#39;s definitely&nbsp;a sense of shared lives in different eras, and Liverpool music speaks a lot about that.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> &ldquo;My music is a time capsule for the moment &ndash; and if you&#39;re not honest about it then it&#39;s almost pointless recording it.&rdquo;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Lots of the music is defined by the landscape, the lives that exist between it all. The city has changed massively since the early 2000s. Mostly for the better. The regeneration that&#39;s been pumped into the city has changed how the city is perceived from the exterior. It&#39;s probably one of the most defining factors.&nbsp;Liverpool is a changeable city. It went from the boom of 2008 [European capital of culture year] to austerity in two years.&nbsp;I remember being 15-16, quite formative years; the coalition government came in and the cuts were hard. I still remember going to a couple of youth clubs when I was younger. That&#39;s all gone now, completely. All that infrastructure is gone, and this feeling comes out in drill music in London. It&#39;s just a pure, desperate cry for help and attention from the austerity generation. Even now, my generation are still a little bit too young to be the defining voice of the city. We don&#39;t call the shots, yet. We haven&#39;t had our time yet.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> There&rsquo;s a sense of being uplifted by the struggles you&rsquo;re in. Working towards something, a common goal. For me, the best music comes from conflict. I don&#39;t mean physical. But more a conflict of ideas, feeling, identity or understanding; music that&#39;s determined, willing to go through the upheaval to be where it wants to be, or change things for others. It&#39;s the only thing to think about for me when making music. It can be nice to writing a song about how everything is great and how happy everyone is. But, you know... channelling conflict in songwriting is where I get the best results. The best basis is when you&#39;re trying to figure something out. The process of writing informs your understanding of yourself and what&#39;s around you. When you&rsquo;re writing a song, especially a rap song, it&#39;s so lyrically dense that if you&#39;re going to tackle a subject, you can&#39;t get away with just skirting over it. It can be a bit like a self-inquisition, where you can come to understand things better during the process. Obviously your opinions can change, but it&#39;s like planting a flag and putting your thoughts out there and you had to deal with them in a definitive way. To put thoughts and feelings out there you need to come to some sort of conclusion.&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Ultimately, Liverpool is a united city. You know, we can divide it between red and blue, or north and south, or race or whatever, but compared to other cities, generally speaking, there&#39;s a unified mentality that prevails. But when it comes to settling on what that identity looks like, there are still elements of preconception it. When people think of the quintessential Scouser, you get the image of the white, Irish football fan. For me, identity is something that&#39;s a reflection of your home life. I&#39;ve always felt like I had a good understanding of my own identity. Sure, I noticed I was different to a lot of other people growing up, but I never had insecurity about it. I always just found it quite easy to accept who I am. I guess that&#39;s quite lucky. There were these two aspects of my identity colliding, but it was never ambiguous. I always understood my story, my family&#39;s story &ndash; &nbsp;even from a very young age. So I never really had any question marks around it.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/CitySeries/MC_Nelson_BidoFeature_KeithAinsworth-8.jpg" /><br /> <br /> &ldquo;For me, the best music comes from conflict; music that&#39;s determined, willing to go through the upheaval to be where it wants to be, or change things for others.&rdquo;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> I think when you&#39;re growing up, your identity is always in relation to people around you. It&#39;s not really until I left Liverpool that I got the opportunity to get the full picture of the city&#39;s identity, what it means to be from here. When you take the time to reflect, you start to see yourself as more of a part of it, and your place in the community. You know, when you&#39;re just here, day in day out, it&#39;s easy to just think everyone is Scouse, and by taking time away you come to appreciate it more.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> There&rsquo;s lot to uncover, even if you&rsquo;ve been living here all of your life. Having an understanding of the city&#39;s past, its shadowed side and the country&rsquo;s history is one of the main undertones of my music. The stones that are unturned in Liverpool, or at least not widely talked about. Its decline from being a major port, its influence on the slave trade, the charged atmosphere during the riots. Just knowing more about these things changes a lot about how you perceive the city. If you do your part to spread the message it will foster cohesion. The more that&#39;s known, the better.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Liverpool is that a city has been chastised in its own way, by the media and the ruling class. So it&rsquo;s no wonder it&rsquo;s got such a strong identity, something to protect itself with, something to help others see it in a positive light. My music isn&rsquo;t necessarily about unearthing guilt for elements of the city or the country, but more about presenting a clear picture of what&#39;s gone before. Something that everyone can learn from. There&#39;s no retribution that&#39;s going to be served. By dealing with these themes you get a wider picture of the city and its past, how we&#39;ve arrived at where we are today. If the entirety of the history is taught and understood by more people, it can only be a positive. In school you learn about Henry XIII, but you don&#39;t learn about what moments actually shaped Liverpool for what it is today. You don&#39;t even learn any local history, which is madness given the abundance of stories that are able to be studied or looked into. Everything informs where we&#39;ve come to today. It&#39;s just important to shed some light on it.&nbsp;My music is a time capsule for the moment &ndash; and if you&#39;re not honest about it then it&#39;s almost pointless recording it.&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span class="f-bold">MC Nelson</span><br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span class="f-bold">SEVENSTORE x adidas Originals 10&rsquo;&rsquo; record will be gifted with purchases of the London City Series and the following two city series releases in 2019.

Starting the musical odyssey in our home of Liverpool, a city that has cut large parts of its fashion identity through adidas Originals discovery and celebration, the 10&rsquo;&rsquo; will feature the music of local Liverpool rapper MC NELSON &ndash; an artist whose stark lyricism paints a picture of contemporary Liverpool and the reverberating echoes of its past.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/CitySeries/adidas-City-Series-Liverpool.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Nelson, the first of four artists on the record, gives us his take on Liverpool and how it has informed his musical practice.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> I grew up in South Liverpool. In Aigburth, predominantly, in touching distance of the river. The places where it sweeps round, down by Otterspool on the promenade. The landscape there is a huge part of my childhood memories. I have quite a strong affinity for the entirety of South Liverpool. In the South, there&#39;s a lot more breathing space; you&#39;re never too far from greenery or the river. For me, it&#39;s a landscape that offers so many opportunities for reflection.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> I first started writing lyrics when I was really young. Like, really young. Some of them were borderline gibberish; basically just words that rhyme. You know, the mechanics of writing, song structure and flow can be quite hard to pull together, regardless of the content. It takes work. When I started making a conscious effort on the content of my lyrics &ndash; &nbsp;that being the thing that was going to set me apart from other musicians in the city, the other rappers &ndash; &nbsp;then it was more about reflecting my surroundings and telling the story of Liverpool in a way that other people weren&rsquo;t doing.&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> At the point in my career where I released By The River, I wasn&#39;t overly aware of the other local rappers that had gone before me. It was great to discover. You know, all the early 2000s Liverpool rap that had a serious conscious edge to it. My attitude and approach to rapping is, quite strangely, a continuation of that, without knowing anything about it when I was making music. It&#39;s only recently as I&#39;ve met more people in the scene now, those like First In Command, that were doing a similarly consciously edged thing. There&rsquo;s a strong continuity. I feel it&#39;s something that resides in the South Liverpool energy. It&rsquo;s an outlook that I&#39;ve subconsciously delivered without ever using the music as a reference point. It&#39;s quite weird, but something that speaks a lot about the shared feelings in the city and the music it can inspire. It wasn&#39;t so much a case of regurgitating the musicians I was listening to in a Scousified sort of way. It was a process of subconsciously taking on their traits and doing it in my own way. So&nbsp;there&#39;s definitely&nbsp;a sense of shared lives in different eras, and Liverpool music speaks a lot about that.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> &ldquo;My music is a time capsule for the moment &ndash; and if you&#39;re not honest about it then it&#39;s almost pointless recording it.&rdquo;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Lots of the music is defined by the landscape, the lives that exist between it all. The city has changed massively since the early 2000s. Mostly for the better. The regeneration that&#39;s been pumped into the city has changed how the city is perceived from the exterior. It&#39;s probably one of the most defining factors.&nbsp;Liverpool is a changeable city. It went from the boom of 2008 [European capital of culture year] to austerity in two years.&nbsp;I remember being 15-16, quite formative years; the coalition government came in and the cuts were hard. I still remember going to a couple of youth clubs when I was younger. That&#39;s all gone now, completely. All that infrastructure is gone, and this feeling comes out in drill music in London. It&#39;s just a pure, desperate cry for help and attention from the austerity generation. Even now, my generation are still a little bit too young to be the defining voice of the city. We don&#39;t call the shots, yet. We haven&#39;t had our time yet.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> There&rsquo;s a sense of being uplifted by the struggles you&rsquo;re in. Working towards something, a common goal. For me, the best music comes from conflict. I don&#39;t mean physical. But more a conflict of ideas, feeling, identity or understanding; music that&#39;s determined, willing to go through the upheaval to be where it wants to be, or change things for others. It&#39;s the only thing to think about for me when making music. It can be nice to writing a song about how everything is great and how happy everyone is. But, you know... channelling conflict in songwriting is where I get the best results. The best basis is when you&#39;re trying to figure something out. The process of writing informs your understanding of yourself and what&#39;s around you. When you&rsquo;re writing a song, especially a rap song, it&#39;s so lyrically dense that if you&#39;re going to tackle a subject, you can&#39;t get away with just skirting over it. It can be a bit like a self-inquisition, where you can come to understand things better during the process. Obviously your opinions can change, but it&#39;s like planting a flag and putting your thoughts out there and you had to deal with them in a definitive way. To put thoughts and feelings out there you need to come to some sort of conclusion.&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Ultimately, Liverpool is a united city. You know, we can divide it between red and blue, or north and south, or race or whatever, but compared to other cities, generally speaking, there&#39;s a unified mentality that prevails. But when it comes to settling on what that identity looks like, there are still elements of preconception it. When people think of the quintessential Scouser, you get the image of the white, Irish football fan. For me, identity is something that&#39;s a reflection of your home life. I&#39;ve always felt like I had a good understanding of my own identity. Sure, I noticed I was different to a lot of other people growing up, but I never had insecurity about it. I always just found it quite easy to accept who I am. I guess that&#39;s quite lucky. There were these two aspects of my identity colliding, but it was never ambiguous. I always understood my story, my family&#39;s story &ndash; &nbsp;even from a very young age. So I never really had any question marks around it.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.sevenstore.com/images/blog/CitySeries/MC_Nelson_BidoFeature_KeithAinsworth-8.jpg" /><br /> <br /> &ldquo;For me, the best music comes from conflict; music that&#39;s determined, willing to go through the upheaval to be where it wants to be, or change things for others.&rdquo;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> I think when you&#39;re growing up, your identity is always in relation to people around you. It&#39;s not really until I left Liverpool that I got the opportunity to get the full picture of the city&#39;s identity, what it means to be from here. When you take the time to reflect, you start to see yourself as more of a part of it, and your place in the community. You know, when you&#39;re just here, day in day out, it&#39;s easy to just think everyone is Scouse, and by taking time away you come to appreciate it more.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> There&rsquo;s lot to uncover, even if you&rsquo;ve been living here all of your life. Having an understanding of the city&#39;s past, its shadowed side and the country&rsquo;s history is one of the main undertones of my music. The stones that are unturned in Liverpool, or at least not widely talked about. Its decline from being a major port, its influence on the slave trade, the charged atmosphere during the riots. Just knowing more about these things changes a lot about how you perceive the city. If you do your part to spread the message it will foster cohesion. The more that&#39;s known, the better.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Liverpool is that a city has been chastised in its own way, by the media and the ruling class. So it&rsquo;s no wonder it&rsquo;s got such a strong identity, something to protect itself with, something to help others see it in a positive light. My music isn&rsquo;t necessarily about unearthing guilt for elements of the city or the country, but more about presenting a clear picture of what&#39;s gone before. Something that everyone can learn from. There&#39;s no retribution that&#39;s going to be served. By dealing with these themes you get a wider picture of the city and its past, how we&#39;ve arrived at where we are today. If the entirety of the history is taught and understood by more people, it can only be a positive. In school you learn about Henry XIII, but you don&#39;t learn about what moments actually shaped Liverpool for what it is today. You don&#39;t even learn any local history, which is madness given the abundance of stories that are able to be studied or looked into. Everything informs where we&#39;ve come to today. It&#39;s just important to shed some light on it.&nbsp;My music is a time capsule for the moment &ndash; and if you&#39;re not honest about it then it&#39;s almost pointless recording it.&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span class="f-bold">MC Nelson</span><br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span class="f-bold">SEVENSTORE x adidas Originals 10&rsquo;&rsquo; record will be gifted with purchases of the London City Series and the following two city series releases in 2019.
