WISHFLIX – G.O.A.T. Edition

This edition of WISHFLIX is dedicated to Michael Jordan, the G.O.A.T. We broke down some classic game film to see if we can catch Mike wearing some of his legendary silhouettes from his championship seasons. Check out these classics, shop our Jordan selection & stay tuned for more info as we celebrate the “His Airness” this weekend with a special sale.

Air Jordan 5 (1990)

The first Jordan release of the 90’s did not disappoint! The AJ 5, designed by Tinker Hatfield, was a reference to WW2 fighter jets. This sneaker featured a ton of basketball firsts such as “icy” clear soles, lace locks, and 3M material to increase on court visibility as fans’ cameras flash. He actually didn’t win a championship this season. The Bulls were ousted by the “Bad Boy” Pistons in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Jordan VI (1991)

The Jordan VI is the sneaker that “His Airness” claimed his first NBA Championship & NBA Finals MVP award in. The design here was based on functionality primarily, many changes on this shoe came from suggestions he had that related to wearability on the court. The tongue has two holes in it to he was able to get the shoe on easier, the first molded heel tab appeared on this sneaker to improve comfort around the achilles. The number 23 is actually designed into the side of the sneaker.

Jordan VII (1992)

The Jordan VII was inspired by an African Art piece that was promoting AfroPop music. Tinker saw a poster, it was an image of someone playing a guitar shaped like Africa. The colorways of the sneaker were based all on patterns from the poster. Unlike previous models, the AJ VII did away with the visible Air unit in the heel and “Nike Air” logo on the heel. Jordan also wore this sneaker during the ’92 Olympics as part of the “Dream Team”

Jordan VIII (1993)

This release was Jordan Brands first stab at independence, feeling as if Jordan Brand has become strong enough on its own they opted for this shoe to not feature a Nike sign. The sneakers most prominent features are the cross straps and huarache lining for more flexible security.

Jordan 11 (1995)

Jordan 12 (1996)

The Air Jordan XII was released when the Chicago Bulls were trying to win their second NBA title in a row for 2nd time during Jordan’s tenure.of another possible championship for the second time in a row. They were the first Air Jordan to feature Zoom Air technology. Competing with new looks like Foamposites & Shox technology, the idea for sneaker was to go “high fashion.” Tinker took inspiration from women’s high heels and the pattern of the upper is reminiscent of the Japanese Rising Sun Flag.

Jordan XIII (1997)

The Jordan 13 was designed by Tinker with the idea of a panther in mind. Mike’s nickname amongst others was “black cat” for how we anticipated and attacked like a panther. The sole resembled as panthers paw and the bubble is hologram that gives it a “cat eyed” expression.

Jordan XIV (1998)

This is the final sneaker Jordan wore in a Bulls jersey. The XIV was designed after the Ferrari that Jordan left the arena in after beating the Jazz in the 1997 NBA Finals. They were premiered in the NBA finals in 1998, where they battled the Jazz for a second consecutive year. The “Last Shot” became iconic because not only did it seal them the championship, but it was his last shot in a Bulls jersey culminating a legendary run.

Coming Soon: Jordan 6 “DMP”

Initially released in 2006 as part of the “Defining Moments Pack” paired with the Jordan 11, this release honors Michael Jordan’s two three-peat championship runs in 1991-93 and 1996-98. This time around its getting a solo release on the eve of the ESPN 30 For 30 premiere of “The Last Dance,” a 10-part documentary about the G.O.A.T.’s final championship season in ’98. Check out some detailed images of the drop below. Scoop this drop when it releases Saturday 4/18 FCFS on WishATL.com

WISHFLIX: ART HOUSE FILMS

Art House is a genre of film encompassing films that have distinct artistically experimental style and content. These types of films are typically serious, feature lesser known actors & independently-produced due to the niche market appeal of the content. These films typically go on to be premiered at special theaters & film festivals like Sundance, Cannes & SxSW. As we continue head into World Art Day on April 15, this week’s WISHFLIX takes a look into some popular Arthouse films and features some accompanying looks from our shop-able Art-Inspired Collection!

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

A tale of a failed relationship in which the two lovers decide to have their memories of the other erased, only to run into each other again. The look inspired by this story has to be the perfect first, and last, date outfit. A shirt featuring the instantly recognizable CDG heart logo seemed the best choice to pop in this fit. The DDM shorts and denim overshirt are a nod to the coastal, Montauk, New York setting of the film. Vans Sk8-Hi sneakers, a bright chartreuse Carhartt WIP bucket hat, and Grace by Grace Bennington fragrance bring together the playful, romantic, and reflective tone of both the outfit and the movie.

Mulholland Drive (2001)

The story of a woman who loses her memory in a car accident, then receives aid from a Hollywood hopeful. David Lynch’s 2001 neo-noir film is less about it’s characters and their motivations and more about the allure of Hollywood stardom. Dreams can be made and broken. This mood is reflected in the look featuring a Chinatown Market Cry button up shirt with an image that could have been taken the movie itself. Styled with a baggy, loose cut Noon Goon No Doubt pant, an attention grabbing fuchsia Stussy beanie and Adidas Terrex sneaker. This look just screams Hollywood’s next it kid.

Enter the Void (2009)

It would be wrong for an outfit inspired by a film featuring hallucinations and out-of-body experiences to not feature tie dye and this look does not disappoint. A MISBHV patched and tie dye tee are paired with a Stussy tie dye short for a disorienting patterned blocked look. The patch-dyed style of the shirt is in a similar spirit to the cinematography style of the Gaspar Noe’ directed film, which is virtually all overhead and POV shots. Chinatown Market yellow-lensed smiley glasses and a Stussy cuff beanie keep with the feel of the fit and the main character’s *ahem* lifestyle. The Vans Ultrarange Exo LX sneaker was  made in collaboration with BILLY’s, a retailer based out of Tokyo, the main setting of the film.

Donnie Darko (2001)

A cult classic psychological thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a troubled teen who follows the voices in his head to great lengths. Is he a savior to humanity or is he out of his mind? The outfit inspired by this film needs to also have equal parts, teen angst and savior complex. Pleasures relax fit denim jeans featuring the word “DESTROY” down the hip and “I DIED FOR YOUR SINS” on the opposite knee fit the bill perfectly. A black long sleeve Maharishi “2020 Vision” tee also tells people, “I see the full picture, even if you cannot.” A simple green Stussy dad cap and Adidas x Pharrell Williams Campus sneaker tone down the look for a very wearable look that is effortlessly cool, like the film’s titular character. 

Brick (2005)

Brick is a neo-noir film, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and set in a California suburb. What does a high school hardboiled detective wear while taking on criminals and searching for a person in danger? Probably the same thing you would wear in California anyway, but darker. Carhartt WIP carpenter pants, white Stussy striped socks and black Vans Slip Ons. The Denim Jacket, White tee and sneakers are all pieces from the Vans x Jim Goldberg collection. A collection with a similarly dark and gritty tone to that of the film. And the Stussy beanie tops the look off because a detective needs a good hat.

Air Max Day 2020

On March 26, 1987, Nike debuted the Air Max 1, its first sneaker showcasing the Swoosh’s now iconic Air technology through a side-visibility window. Thirty-three years later, and with the ever improving innovations of Nike Air, the company still celebrates the revolutionary cushioning platform on the release date of its first shoe. 

This Air Max Day, Nike pays homage to the countless Air Max variations over the years that paved the way for the future of Air. This year boasts a collection of releases, from flips of some old favorites to introducing a new member to the Air Max lineage.

The Air Max 90 is being re-released in a trio dubbed the “Metallic Pack” for its gold, silver & bronze color-ways in the silhouettes recently adjusted vintage shape.

MISBHV

Women’s Spring ’20 Collection

Hailing from Poland, MISBHV started in 2013 with Natalia Maczek making pseudo-designer t-shirts for her friends to wear to clubs, as a summer side project. After she decided on fashion over law school, she enlisted co-designer & creative director Thomas Wirski and began making full men’s & women’s collections. After a successful SS17 New York Fashion Week show, Rihanna wore their brand during her “Anti” Tour and brand began to gain notoriety. Wirski jokes that the brand was “never supposed to be taken seriously.” However, they have created a serious movement over past few years.

MISBHV aims to merge streetwear and 90’s rave culture to create pieces that are equal parts nostalgic & unique. These influences shine in motocross inspired cropped tops & shorts, as well as sports bras paired with baggy bottoms. She’s also produced men’s pieces with frayed seams, typefaces reminiscent of 90’s streetwear brands and very on-trend tie dyes. Shop the collection here!

Reese Cooper

Reese Cooper, a multidisciplinary artist, is a storyteller. He documents his exploration and experiences in his label. From fashion to photography, film to furniture, each project or collection tells a story – some fact, some fiction – woven together through powerful imagery and messaging all underpinned by precision detail.

He’s a 21 year old designer born in Atlanta and based out of LA by way of London. He launched the label in 2016 at the age of 18 and now at the age of 21, he is the youngest ever finalist for the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund. This award is given in support of a promising American designer and former winners include Thom Browne, Kirby Jean-Raymond (Pyer Moss) and the Elder Statesmen.

If any description is to be given to his clothing, Cooper prefers “modern heritage.” Mixing Americana and workwear effortlessly, it stands part from other brands with how authentically it tells a story. The men’s SS2020 collection is titled “How A Letter Travels” and draws direct inspiration from the US Postal Service as a metaphor for how far people are willing to go to tell their story & deliver their message. The collection is made for travelers, featuring lightweight nylon cargo pants & shorts, and uppers decorated in images of postal workers, stamps and mailboxes. Shop the collection here!

New Brand: Aries

Sofia Pantera founded Aries in London in 2010 with the help of graphic design legend Fergus Purcell. This was after almost a decade of designing for cult streetwear label Silas. This brand exudes non-conformity and confidently downplays being easily classified. Many of their pieces are created gender neutral to emphasize inclusivity.

“We wanted Aries to be a return to that 80s sensibility where street wear was fashion and vice versa. I make most of our patterns myself and
we hand dye and hand print in the studio. I like going against conventional pattern-cutting rules. I love that we can create pieces with firsthand experimentation which would be almost impossible to make within the constraints of a high street brand. We can also be a lot less
wasteful – using off cuts of leather to make jeans labels, reusing leftover fabric and denim to patch jeans”

https://www.ariesarise.com/about-aries-brand-book/

Pantera mentions that Aries’ creation is a product of her “struggling with reconciling her love for fashion, beautifully made and cut clothes, and sartorial experimentation with the love for streetwear, anti-fashion youth movements and trash culture in general,” so she decided that Aries should encompass all of those aspects.
