In light of the upcoming World Cup, Nike has provided players with only the best garments for their matches. Essentially, soccer players taking part in the World Cup will be on the field for 90 mins and after each match, they need to let their bodies recuperate. With that in mind, Nike has come up with team kits that have been designed with optimal cooling solutions and a garment that can help facilitate recuperation.
Football played in Brasil this June and July could see temperatures around 25 degrees celcius, with at least 10 matches pushing 30 degrees celcius. Clearly running around in a large field, with a goal in mind (did you see what I did there?) in such hot weather conditions can cause dehydration and worst still, heat stroke, if a player is not used to the heat. It includes technology which helps sweat evaporate faster.
The kits also have a burn-out mesh at the back which reduces weight by removing fabric in key heat zones for added breathability. Basically, this kit is supposed to help ensure that the player remains cool.
Believe it or not, soccer players are humans too, and when humans stretch themselves to their furthest physical potential, it can cause a strain – especially when you have matches one every two days. The days between matches are crucial as it is when players get a chance to recuperate. The Nike Pro Combat Recovery Hypertight is a garment that has graduated compression that helps to aid recovery, particularly at the lower limb area. It is to be worn away from competition, during active recovery, while the body is moving but not competing or engaged in intense exercise.
It has been proven by athletes themselves that the Nike Pro Combat Recovery Hypertight actually works. Many athletes like LeBron James, have mentioned that it has helped him recover from game to game, and it allows him to feel good before and during a game.

Say what you will about the mafia, but they sure are rich in culture and symbolism. Tattoos for one, is a whole new of language. From representative Russian tattoos to the colourful and artistic Japanese inks, it’s no wonder local label Coupe-cousu have chosen the illustrative art (and other mafia-esque trademarks) to be a source of inspiration for their Fall/Winter Collection.
Coupe-couse, “cut and sewn” in French, is a brand known for its sleek and tailored look. From embroidery to prints to fabric, this collection is steeped in the luxury and mystery of the mafia world – albeit dangerous and life threatening, and their latest range of apparels can only be described as criminally cool.
Coupe-couse’s suits and shirt-jacket uses a luxurious jacquard fabric reminiscent of the bourgeois class. Taking note from the usually refine Italian mafia tattoos are the crisp engineered shirts and tailored shorts.
Throwing in a hint of casual chic are the baseball-style shirts, oversized tees, and loose harem trousers. Colours also play a big part in wrapping up this collection. While a palette of grey, slate, white, and black is the default for all things cool, the designers have included a smatter of teal, blood red, orange and electric lime to brighten things up.
Get your hands on the collection at TANGS ORCHARD, 310 Orchard Road, Level 3 Menswear Department.

The collection will consist of “The Cassette Shirts”- four limited edition Fred Perry Shirts reworked with Panter’s original art works.
“My relationship with Fred Perry in reference to my art goes back to 2012 when I was asked to embellish one of their shirts to commemorate their 60th anniversary. I took the subtle flag of the coloured collar and made a statement of it,” said Panter, as he recalls his very first Fred Perry shirt. His artworks for the cassette series are featured on the classic Fred Perry Shirt – a patch that is sewn onto the right sleeve of the shirt.
The shirt is also authenticated with Panter’s signature on the bottom hem and a swing tag with featuring excerpt of lyrics from each song. The Cassette Shirts retail for $199 each. There are only 100 pieces and they are only sold at Fred Perry Laurel Wreath Collection Shop.

UNIQLO is back with a new collection and new promotions this May! Nookmag has got a sneak peek at them and these are our picks, including some #OOTDOn May 29, 2014 / By Nookmag
UNIQLO is back with a new collection and new promotions this May! Nookmag has got a sneak peek at them and these are our picks, including some #OOTD ideas if you intend to get some of these pieces. Two of them are from the Ines De La Fressange collaboration, and of course, the French model and fashion designer would be the perfect style icon for these pieces. They were named after and inspired by her, after all!
But we can’t all be Ines, so here are some suggestions on our picked Uniqlo pieces! This Kimono-esque top, for example, can be worn for a work day, dinner, or a laidback Sunday with your friends. For a work outfit, pair the Ines De La Fressange Cache-coeur T-shirt ($29.90) with a pair of fitting white pants and a camisole underneath.
This tee also goes with pencil skirts and stilettos. You can also wear it kimono like fashion blogger Aimee Song! Aimee shows you how to style a simple wrap with cutoff and studded denim.
You can never go wrong with a simple button down cardigan, or in this case, the Ines De La Fressange Light Crew Neck Cardi ($49.90). With no collars, you can choose to leave one or two buttons unbuttoned to give it a more casual, laid-back look. A basic piece like this goes with everything from jeans to shirts to skirts.
Cardigans are also a favourite staple of Alexa Chung. The fashion icon has been seen incorporating a simple cardigan into her outfits. A staple piece like the Light Crew Neck Cardigan matches right with a pair of good jeans or layered outfits.
Stepping away from the Ines de La Fressange pieces, this is one that is perfect for Singapore’s hot and humid weather! There are so many ways to style this Jonathan Adler Sleeveless Blouse ($29.90). You can easily leave the top unbuttoned and tie the ends of each side together to bring on the 60s vibe.
If you’re daring enough, you can even skip the tank top and just show a bit of your belly and make it a crop top.
This Silk Sleeveless Blouse ($49.90) is more flowy than the Jonathan Adler Sleeveless Blouse. And that means this silk top is a breezier option!
It can be styled the same way, but you can also pair it with white denim high waisted shorts (to go with a printed piece) and wear a pair of neutral coloured sneakers or sandals like below:
Printed t-shirts are the easiest piece of clothing to style because it is a statement piece in itself. The Jonathan Adler T-shirt ($24.90) will add a pop of colour and print to your wardrobe.
You can choose to style printed t-shirts with a colour within the print itself, in this case white. Some prints go well with other prints. The trick is to find one that is more subtle than the other, so that the mixture is not too overwhelming. We love how the outfit below is a good mix of prints!
UNIQLO is also having two in-store promotions with the purchase of the Chupa Chups girls UTs and the Bearbrick UTs! With every purchase of 2 Bearbrick UTs, customers will be entitled to a free limited edition Bearbrick keychain. Here’s another promotion, limited to selected stores: with every purchase of a Girl’s Chupa Chups Graphic T-shirt, the child will get a chance to grab and keep as many Chupa Chups lollipops as they with one hand. This promotion will be held at the following stores only: Bugis+, Plaza Singapura, VivoCity, [email protected], Bedok Mall, Causeway Point, City Square Mall, Jem®, Liang Court, Parkway Parade, Suntec City and Chinatown Point.

Sneakers born out of a timeless and multifaceted concept, the Converse Maison Martin Margiela First String collection is back for a succeeding sequel. The first collaboration last September saw the sneakers fully snapped up globally before you can even finish mumbling “Maison Martin Margiela”.
The latest collection extends the original evolving white overpaint concept with the Converse All Star Chuck ‘70 and Converse Jack Purcell sneakers in ultra-soft premium leather. The buttery leather transforms the sneakers’ interior and exterior for luxury and comfort, while the collaboration’s pure white hand-painted upper emphasizes the simple beauty and silhouette of the iconic footwear.
“We’re pleased to offer a new expression of such a great collaboration between Converse and the Maison,” says Maison Martin Margiela. “The story of two like-minded brands continues with the evolution of the sneaker collection where personal expression is at the forefront, revealing the expression of vibrant colours shining through an incognito white coat that ages with time.”
The more the Converse Maison Martin Margiela sneakers are worn, the more the overpaint loosens its hold, elegantly cracking to reveal the hidden, bold colour. Original heritage colorways from the Converse archives are slowly revealed through four distinct styles: Amber Glow and True Navy with the Converse All Star Chuck ’70 and Azure Blue and Biking Red with the Converse Jack Purcell. The sneaker also features the discreet yet distinguishable Maison Martin Margiela logo on the tongue, and both silhouettes are accented with painted and non-painted lace options.
Converse First String is a limited edition collection that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and collaboration at the highest level. Retailing at SGD299, the Converse Maison Martin Margiela sneaker collection will be launched at Surrender (Raffles Hotel Arcade, #02-31, Singapore 188719) on 23 May 2014.

Kate Moss is one of the most well-known supermodels of all time. Seven years after her first collaboration with Topshop, she does it again with a new Spring/Summer collection that shows off how she has evolved as a designer. According to Kate, her taste and choice in clothing has changed since her last collection. She took what she learnt from the first collection in terms of picking out fabrics, the design process, and quality and applied it in the new one.
This Spring/Summer, Kate included Balearic dressing, which is a reflection of her love for the Balearic Islands. This series come with embroidered smock-tops, silk blouses and a white kaftan. She also introduced pajama dressing! Be stylish and comfortable – best of both worlds. Being the style icon that she is, these pajama pieces are carefully designed to look stylish, without skimping on the comfort.
Every fashionista needs the perfect dress for a party. Kate’s collection comes with flirty and sexy cocktail dresses that has intricate beading and opulent trims. While Diane Keaton is always spotted with a tailored female tuxedo, Kate has taken that trend and added her flavour in the classic look that hugs your body at all the right places.
Topshop recently had the media preview for Kate’s new collection at the Knightsbridge outlet. Items in her collection range from $99 for a paisley scarf to $1379 for her jewel beaded dress (only available online at www.topshop.com). Unfortunately, the tuxedo is not yet available in Singapore.
