A Review of LFW 2016 Highlights

True to British form - the weather was a little over cast, but nothing would stop the hype surrounding London Fashion Week. The atmosphere was definitely unexplainable in the capital that has inspired the collection of Foxberry Boys and brought many fashionistas from around the world together to inspire one another and to pay respect to the craft of talented designers.

So we decided immerse ourselves in the atmosphere, connect with fashion enthusiasts on the streets of London who dare to break boundaries in social conceptions of dress code and support the well known designers and those upcoming coming through University and start ups.  

The demand for menswear is booming and it's all due to the rise of style smart consumers, for whom are more likely to buy accessories to give their outfit that personalized touch. 

Therefore Foxberry Boys decided to mingle with, and check out the cap game of the street fashionistas and the talented catwalk designers showcasing their accessory collection.

With very little time to stop and eat, we visited Carnaby Street, Brewers Street Car Park, Grand Connaught Rooms and London Spitafields Market. Inspired by some talented artwork and craft, for me Allan Vos luxury underwear and Victor Wong sunglasses collections were my favourites. Victor Wong sunglasses collection was definitely a firm favourite. The contrast between the garments and eyewear. The designs had edge, the collection was presented to seamless precession to music and the models wearing the eyewear were carefully chosen to represent the look.

It was phenomenal to see her come out and support more fashion creatives. #shopFOXBERRYBOYSonline for The Red Original Foxberry Boys snapback

V Festival 21st Birthday Celeb Style Watch

V Festival was celebrating their 21st birthday this year and boy did they put on an all-out pop festival, opting to go for its first pair of pop titans for headliners with Justin Bieber and Rihanna. Both headline artists and supporting acts did not fail to disappoint the British public as they partied away under typical unpredictable weather conditions. So out came the Hunter wellies, Rain macs and the ever popular low profile basebal l caps and snapbacks to ensure they enjoyed the festival in comfort. Foxberry Boys had access to The Virgin Media, Mahiki Rum’s VIP area and we managed to catch up with A-List celebrities and soak up the atmosphere, sipping on pineapple cocktails and dancing to DJs playing chart hits. 

Whilst journalists found the Mark Wright and Danny Dyer encounter pretty much the topic of debate this weekend, other A-List celebrities such as Craig David and Tinie Tempah decided to adopt a more subtle macho camouflage print style and blend into the background. Notably Marvin Humes, CapitalFM and TV Presenter chose to wear our very own Foxberry Boys Camouflage Trucker.

Who knew that Reebok would dig into the archives and relaunch the classics!! This Easter Bank Holiday Weekend I decided to go shopping. Final stop Covent Garden to add a pair of trainers to my collection for the spring/summer. Nike and Addidas have been very popular amongst the socialites with their adventurous designs and I wanted something different - simple, durable, cool and classic for the festivals this year. So I went into Offspring and instantly feel in love with the new spring Reebok Classic colour ways and the durability of the trainer which made me leave the store with two pairs of trainers instead of one.  A definite must have, don't be the one to miss out and secure your pair today.

Straight out of Foxberry Road

London, SE4

London, SE4

Yesterday I got to see the film 'Straight Outta Compton' at the Odeon cinema at my local neighbourhood and although I am know expert film critic I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it and I would definitely give the film a 5 star rating. 

In the movie there is a scene backstage where DJ Yella is chastised by Easy E before a concert because he is wearing a yellow vest. The N.W.A colour scheme was black and silver like their football team, LA Raiders. This was crucial. It was as much a part of their star power, as tracks that expressed the blistering anger of young black men on the streets of LA in the eighties. Like N.W.A, Foxberry Boys knew the power of image and branded themselves creating the fox logo to represent the name which derived from Foxberry Road, London, SE4.

NWA’s monochrome streetwear has even influenced how young men dress now. Inspired by contemporary rappers who are also style influencers such as Drake and ASAP Rocky.  The great thing about NWA’s look is how easy it is to put together. That’s probably the thing that made them, a group of kids with little disposable income for designer clothes, do it in the first place. One Snapback (Foxberry Boys) white T-shirt (Topman) and a pair of black jeans (Topman) and you’re sorted.

It’s hard to put into words how I really like this movie. But I would recommend that if you like rap or just want a piece of a history lesson, this movie is it. It takes in every aspect of the essential roots of these men from Compton into what rap has become in our society. It’s real. It’s powerful. It’s a must-watch.
