Awesome New Hats and Hoodies at Saturdays … SoHo, New York

We’re fans of Saturdays, the cafe-surf shop and clothing brand inspired by the surfing lifestyle. Its original flagship store is on Crosby Street in SoHo, where we recently paid a visit to pick up a gift during the recent holidays. We found some awesome new hoodie and hat designs (pictured below) and scooped up a floral-print flat cap and “Ditch Plains” hoodie with “SATURDAYS” serif-font logotype design.

Design & Style … “Journal de Nimes” in Amsterdam

20131230-131156.jpg

The clothing store Tenue de Nimes is among Amsterdam’s most influential purveyors of denim, clothing and style, if not its foremost. The shop reliably stocks an impeccably curated selection of well-made clothing, jeans, shoes and accessories, including a lot of limited edition items. The shop also publishes a popular tabloid-format magazine on newsprint called Journal de Nimes and recently delivered edition No. 9 of the magazine in English marking their 5th anniversary. Beautifully designed and illustrated, this issue of Journal de Nimes provides a Best Of list of the owners’ favorite places in Amsterdam to eat, drink, find culture and even get tattoos. Other highlights are an interview with Yuki Matsuda (of brands Yukaten and Monitaly) and a visit to a Japanese textile-making workshop.

ALife Wild-Posting Ads in SoHo … New York

These wheat-pasted Alife ad posters on Crosby Street, in SoHo, are trying to be provocative but feel conceptually kind of tired to us, even though we’re seeing them here for the first time. We suppose the ads work on a brand-awareness level, since we’d forgotten the clothing brand and hadn’t seen it anywhere for awhile. Maybe our tastes have changed and where we shop for clothes isn’t where Alife is stocked anymore.
