The New York-based brand presents its Fall 2014 collection with a range of goods for the cooler weather. Entitled “Flight Theory,” the new collection features joggers, jerseys, sweats, tees, and snapback hats, this season athletics and the outdoors figure prominently, inspiring the use of intricate geometric patterns throughout the collection.
Despite the announcement that they would be shutting down their operations after seven years of successful business, celebrated street artist KAWS and his OriginalFake imprint have been steadily rolling out new Medicom figures throughout 2013. The latest debut arrives in the form of the recognizable “Passing Through” Companion figure. Offered up in two colorways – all-black and tonal grey – each somber character is seen perched with its head in its hands. The “Passing Through” Companion is something that KAWS has frequently returned to, having seen exposure most notably in the ongoing larger Companion statue traveling exhibition as seen in Atlanta’s former, “Down Time” installation.
Both of the characters in black and grey are now available directly from Wish. Orders can be placed by phone order by calling 404.880.0402 ext #2 or via email by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Retail is $425 USD.

En Noir grew its roots at a Parisian factory notorious for cranking out the collections of seasoned fashion world veterans such as Balmain and Chanel, as well as newer names to the game, including Kanye West’s women’s line. For Garcia, the direction of En Noir was always about the utility of the clothing. Many of the brands in his closet rule the fashion runways, but are difficult to pull off on the street. Garcia hoped to take advantage of his Parisian connect, focusing on the fit, silhouette and the quality of the garment, while designing a more practical luxury item that could be worn without any consideration of season. The result of his labor was “Monochromatic Minimalism,” En Noir’s first collection.
