URBAN CHIC - MIKE AND CHRIS

imageimageimageimageimage

MIKEANDCHRIS.COM:
“After embarking on their much sought after hoodie line, husband and wife design team, Mike Gonzalez and Christine Park-Gonzalez decided to broaden their offering to a full collection.
The duo have created collections that better reflected the art and sub-culture of their roots. Born in Queens, NY, Christine, has always been inspired by the arts while husband Mike pursued a career in fashion photography that eventually took him to New York and Paris. “Mike comes from a long line of artists and as a former photographer, his inherent understanding of how colors and the lines of clothes work really shaped a lot of the designs,” says Christine. “We knew that the standard hoodie could be more fashion forward with the right detailing without sacrificing wear ability or comfort”. The design duo has managed to meld chic and street, resulting in a line that is both laid back yet put together.
Using an array of fabrics from super soft fleece in antiqued colors to distressed leathers, detailed with oversized buttons, antique brass eyelets, and unconventional styling, the line has expanded on the hoodie concept to develop a full Men’s & Women’s collection. “Christine and I grew up in the LA and NY of the late 70s and ‘80s. Our line is really inspired by that aesthetic,” says Mike. Whether paired with their super soft knit leggings, wide trousers, or skirts, the collection exudes a street sensibility with a sort of laid-back chic”

NYC: GREY IS THE NEW BLACK ?????

image

Look into your closet and count how many grey shirts you have. Count how many non-grey shirts you have.  Do not be surprised if most of the shirts you own are grey because it is ridiculously in style right now, it was last year and it seems like it is getting trendier and trendier!!! 
Have you taken a train recently? The subway is filled with black uniforms alongside with grey ones. New Yorkers wear a lot of black but who knows, grey may be a sign of other colors coming to visit New York city soon.
