Dirk Bikkembergs Clone-tastic Fall/Winter 2014 Ad Campaign

Dirk Bikkembergs Fall/Winter 2014 Campaign

Dirk Bikkembergs has jumped on the Orphan Black-bandwagon and moved in a chic, sci-fi creative direction for the brand's latest ad campaign for fall/winter 2014. Model Josh Haywood gets transformed into a dark, edgy and brooding clone with the sole mission of selling Bikkemberg's minimal and modern designs. Luxe leathers combined with impeccable tailoring elevate the jackets seen in this campaign to an other-worldly level that is reminiscent of the costumes seen in Ridley Scott's film Prometheus. I, of course, love this entire ad campaign and have no doubt that this collection will sell extremely well.

3 Reasons Why You Should Love the Jeremy Scott for Adidas Originals F/W 2014 Collection


Jeremy Scott for Adidas Originals Fall/Winter 2014


Jeremy Scott has done it again! His upcoming fall/winter 2014 collection for Adidas Originals definitely pushes the street wear envelope, and street style stars and fans of the designer across the globe will definitely be snatching up a piece from this whimsical yet stylish collaboration. Yes, there are bold, colourful prints; yes, there are cool moto pants; and yes, there are crazy kicks -- and I'd expect nothing less from a Jeremy Scott for Adidas Originals collection. However, this time around, three design highlights really caught my eye and truly set this collection apart:

3. Kenny Scharf's Graphics Can't Be Beat

Wild and interesting prints are signature to any Jeremy Scott for Adidas Originals collection, but this time around  New York artist Kenny Scharf was enlisted by Scott to take the character and charm of this collection to the next level. The strongest pieces featuring Scharf's creations are definitely the pointed slip-on shoes and the long-sleeved dress (see below). How can you not help but smile at the fun characters and graphics of the colourful prints? Exactly.

2. Moto-chic has never been cooler

Biker-inspired style has been a hot trend this year with plenty of motorcycle jackets and motocross pants making their way down a multitude of major spring/summer runways. Jeremy Scott reinvents this popular style in the collection by giving it an urban street interpretation; moto armour-like padding and bold racing logo-type graphics get printed on a long-sleeved top, a dress, a pair of pants and a pair of wedge sneakers. The prints work to create a streamlined silhouette that's both uber chic and visually captivating. I adore the long-sleeved top paired with the motocross pants (see below), yes please!

1. Denim-On-Denim Is Everything

The Canadian tuxedo has never looked better and takes the form of a denim-printed track suit complete with matching sneakers in this collection (see below). Although this look may not be for everyone, it's definitely one that won't go unnoticed; I personally love it. Britney and Justin, eat your heart out!
