I've discovered a new passion- street style. Underground, on the rise brands that stand for something. This is what makes our generation so great.. we have no limits of creativity. The people who find that innovative approach these days are the people that are going to set the bar for the rest to come. With that said, I'd like to introduce you to the brands that are allowing us to pay homage to the major fashion houses and designers that are legends and role models today, at a price more affordable than the actual haute houses the majority of us can't squeeze into our budget.
Les Plus Dorés, a brand that describes themselves as a small clothing company in New York City that makes limited edition goods 'for the most golden', released a few items before the Tisci shirt was released. However, that's around when I jumped on board with the brand and started keeping tabs, being inspired to blog about all of this street wear accessible to the masses- if you're in the know.
Les Plus Dorés is the second New York-based brand that I've seen be inspired by Givenchy/Riccardo Tisci in a rapid amount of time. 40oz Van released their Givenchy-inspired hat at the end of September... people were anticipating the release of that hat like nothing I'd ever seen. The difference between 40oz Van and Les Plus Dorés is that 40oz takes orders for 12 hours online, whereas LPD makes a limited amount of one release. First come, first serve. Both of these brands give us a chance to be a part of something exclusive. Something that people instinctively want to be a part of, especially if you appreciate fashion.
I've teamed up with Clément aka @RenaissanceXVIII of LUXE and LIFE, a beautiful friendship and collab inspiration brought to us by Instagram, the greatest invention since sliced bread.
There's almost an immediate respect for people who know about this underground hype that is just starting to catch flame. The greatest part is that as much as this buzz is advertised on men, women can swag out in it too.
Clément took the route of really paying respects to the roots of Riccardo Tisci, and mastering the Catholic vibes that have influenced some of his most recent collections. Religion is a big part of Tisci's DNA expressed through his work with a mix of his twisted imagination.
I chose the route of showing you that girls can get down with this new era just as well as the dudes can, and showing that the inspirational wave of our generation is one you can't sleep on.

The 40oz Van team ignited the passion in me to explore this new world of fashion and also be inspired by the movement.
I'm happy to announce that the black on black Givenchy-inspired and NY Balmain hats will be available to order this upcoming Friday 11/30.
Belee dat shits about to rock the boat.
Go Hard or Go Home.
