Ozwald Boateng Fall/Winter 2012 Collection at London Fashion Week

London-based designer Ozwald Boateng had an exceptional showing at last week’s London Fashion Week. Though his Fall 2012 collection is not as vibrant as we’ve seen from him in season’s past, it’s still one to keep an eye on for next winter. The warm fabrics and muted tones play well together while the cuts deliver a well-crafted lineup of goods. The Japanese-inspired aesthetics blend well with the British roots of the label and make for some must-have offerings.

PUMA x Alexander McQueen Street Climb Mid Leather

PUMA x Alexander McQueen Street Climb Mid Leather S/S 2012

Speaking from the heart, I’ve been a fan of the PUMA x AMQ collaboration for years now, trailing back to my college days when I used to make my way over to The Black Store and grab a pair or two season over season. It was the only place you could find PUMA’s Black Label collaborations and though a pair is a bit easier to track down nowadays, the designs have seldom disappointed. The Street Climb Mids in leather for spring look impeccable and come in a trio of colorways – cognac, white, and black. They’re wearable and with their track record, are known to be one of the most comfortable pair of kicks you’ll ever own. Considering I own a ton of ’em them — TRUST. Look for these to hit select shops in the weeks ahead.
