NVRMND Clothing’s “No More Roses Nor Pretty Patterns – NMRNPP” Collection Lookbook

Shout-out to your favorite spiritual entity, because NVRMND’s third season is almost ready. As always, we (especially Mr. Bato) poured ourselves into this season, and have traded quantity for quality. However, this time we’ve opted for a more clean cut yet casual look, aiming towards producing clothes that keep you at that happy middle-ground between looking like an overdressed dickhead and an underdressed mouth-breather. We’re sick of overdone flamboyance, and have decided that it’s time for some understated class to makes its way back onto the scene.

To start us off we have the the Rect-Logo Hoodie. It’s more comfortable than your favorite comfy sweater, but unlike yours, this one doesn’t make you look like a trashbag person. Made from 100% cotton, these hoodies have a huge center pocket, great for secure transportation of your school supplies or 40 ouncer, and extra long drawstrings that, in a pinch, can be used for chocking out assailants/victims. They come in three different colorways: gray (pictured above), black (pictured below) and burgundy (not pictured). Also note our Raw Denim pants, one of our proudest releases to date.

The black color way of the Rect-Hoodie is an ideal choice for those low profile  It has the slimming qualities that come with black clothing, meaning no more feeling self-conscious about how chunky you look when you’re high at your local 7-Eleven stuffing bags of hamburger flavored chips up your shirt (it’s cool, we don’t judge).

One of the simpler pieces of the new season, our straight cut t-shirt is made from imported french terry cloth. This thing retains heat like a champ, and the inside of it feels like skinned baby seals without any of the guilt.

 

Next we have our  Micro Houndstooth button-up, coupled with the NMRNPP raw denim jeans in black. Both are perfect examples of what we were going for in this season, and while at first glance you might think that they appear simple, once you have them on you’ll quickly change your mind.  At first the jeans may feel a bit like testicle crushers, but that’s simply because they’re raw denim and they need to be broken in, and once that happens you won’t want to take them off. The indigo pair are made of italian raw denim, and the black pair are made from black raw bull denim.

We now come to the Polka button-up, which is a personal favorite of mine from the new season. I know what you’re thinking: “Oogie, I look like too much of a goon to wear this shirt.” Which is simply wrong. Anyone can pull this bad-boy off. In fact, the shirt compensates for your mediocre looks by emphasizing your suave characteristics, and the thick material and long sleeves hide any unsightly skin conditions you might have. They’re also made of 100% cotton, so they won’t add to any irritation you have.

Lastly we have our raw finish fleece top in black. This piece is crazy soft. How soft you ask? Think Asher Roth, minus that whole “embarrassingly bad” thing he has going on. It’s great for layering up on those colder days, or to hide your ugly/dirty clothes underneath.

All joking aside, we’re truly grateful that we’re still making clothes for you guys. A little over a year ago we had our first release, and it’s thanks to your support that we’ve been able to continue doing what we love. So thanks.

Follow NVRMND on twitter, like our Facebook page, and be sure to keep an eye on the store in the next few days. It’ll be reopening with the release of the new season, and we’ve been working on it for some time now.

NVRMND 2011 Edition: “Constantly Day-Dreaming”

Well, today’s the day. Our second season is finally here and ready for your grubby little hands to snatch up. We’ve been working on this set of clothes for quite a while now,  and while it is not insanely extensive we do have a few gems for you to throw on. It’s taken a bit a of a toll on us, with friends and family complaining about being neglected, or when we’re with them, complaining about our minds being elsewhere. But they can take one for the team, we did it for you (and a little for ourselves) so take a look and know that we have more stuff planned for you in the near future.

Anyway, we’ve got some shots of the new season (featured below), check them out.

To start we have the “Constantly Day-Dreaming” Denim Jacket. It’s made from distressed denim that was hand treated, meaning each piece is one of a kind. The lining is 100% silk (crazy soft)  so your skin won’t get roughed up (for all you kids with sensitive skin). This piece is quite limited, meaning no more than 50 will be released worldwide. Better cop it quick while they’re still in stock, and with a lining that slick they won’t last long.

Underneath that beautiful denim jacket we have the “Classic Logo” Tee. Following the old standard of quality over quantity we are releasing only 30 of these a year. Tastefully understate, the the “Classic Logo” Tee says “I slay hoodrats regularly, what of it?”.


Now we come to our “Poor Boy” crewneck that just reeks of elegance. Seriously, you’ll be hard pressed to find a crewneck that makes you feel cute in all of the right ways. Another piece that’s super limited, only 30 of each colorway will be released. It’s worth the purchase just for that stylish breast pocket. It comes in heather gray or navy blue.

The second colorway of the “Poor Boy” crewneck. It’s perfect for those cool, breezy summer nights, and the pocket is great for stashing your illicit item(s) of choice.

For all of you cat lovers we have the “Leopard Print” Tee, and at the risk of sounding effeminate this piece is pretty damn fierce. I guess that’s not a bad thing, seeing as fierce is a quality that you’d find in big cats like Leopards. And since we’re on the topic of big cats, that big cat Kreayshawn was seen sporting this Tee a little while back in one of our “NVRMND’s Friends” articles. Man, I would wife her in a second if she let me, and I question your manhood if you wouldn’t do the same.

Last but not least we have the “Safety” button down shirt. It’s a big time head turner and features some opened safety pins, showing that you’re a little edgy, but that you also play it safe (so you don’t scare off the ladies).  This piece is super limited, with only 25 being released this season. We also have another one bad boys in a blue colorway (same design) coming out in the near future, so if you miss out on this one you don’t have to worry about whether or not you have enough baby aspirin to end your suffering just yet.

So as you can see we have a super limited season and unfortunately for some of you it is on a first come first serve basis. On the plus side, you’ll find in the store that we have quite a bit of patches and pins for you to throw on your gear if you are unable to snag a piece of your own. Also, keep an eye out for some of the Tees from last season. We’ll be rereleasing some of those later in the season.

Be sure to follow us on twitter (as well as the rest of the crew), as well as visit our facebook page, and most importantly check out the store (we’ve been revamping it for the past couple of months now).

Lady Gaga x Terry Richardson x SUPREME

I know, these pictures have been leaked a while ago. But, cm’on, the copies were awful. Whoever leaked those pictures definitely did do a good job. So here you go, here is the real deal: Lady Gaga was protagonist of the presentation of the new SUPREME handbag. As you already know, pictures were taken by Terry Richardson. Enjoy.

Karl Lagerfeld x Kanye West x VMAN Magazine

Just as everything he is involved in, the latest issue of VMAN Magazine featuring Kanye West (and Karl Lagerfeld) will be subject of major controversy. Now, before I even start talking about the magazine, I want to get a few points across to those who always have to complain about Yeezt. You can hate on Kanye West all you want, I don’t care, as long as you do it based on something worth  hating him for; and no, making Taylor Swift cry does not count. West is a  musician, he knows how to play musical instruments, and he does it well because took him all the way to where he is now (and  and when i say instruments I’m not referring to the mouse pad on your Mac Book, because that, is not an instrument). He’s been a fashion icon for nearly a decade now, his taste is being recognized globally, think of LV without YE, or Marc Jacobs, there is pretty high chance they would be bankrupt, at least in the States, without him. And now he’s getting shot by Karl Lagerfeld, one of the biggest names in the fashion industry. And, not pull stereotypes, but those big fashion-heads won’t even look at you if you’re worth it. So please, unless you can do better musically and have the fashion industry in the palm of your hand, shut your mouth and stop diminishing people for no valid reason.

Now going back on the magazine, the concept is pretty interesting as it is equipped with a real dollar bill that was carefully placed in Yeezy’s mouth on the cover. Pictures and design are by Karl Lagerfeld, creative director of Chanel, with inspiration coming from the typical G.O.O.D. music design with juxtaposition of black and white and coral red. A few days ago, VMAN hosted an actual assembly line where models would get each mag ready and sealed. If you want to grab a copy of the issue go to the closest relailer or buy online HERE.

Vanishing Elephant S/S 2011 Lookbook

First of all, props for the cool, badass name, I mean, Vanishing Elephant? Yes, Vanishing Elephant. Based in Australia, this brand brings us colorful and definitely well designed patters along with a large variety of high quality fabrics. Their apparel is also adaptable to a multitude of styles, which is always, always a plus. I’d like to point out their shorts for this season, the cut is at a perfect length and the patterning is just too fucking good. Unfortunately, even thought the collection is for the spring and summer seasons of 2011, it will only be available in the United States by the following fall. But with that said, it is worth the wait. Vanishing Elephant? Yes, Vanishing Elephant. Enjoy.

Pauline Borca S/S 2011 Lookbook

For all of you pseudo-hipsters that look like you just came out of a dark fairytale/bad mushroom trip, guess what, we finally found a label that fits your style. Pauline Borca is a textile company based in France, and I am pretty sure that while designing this collection they had MGMT’s “Oracular Spectacular” put on repeat, just blasting through massive speakers the whole entire time. But now, jokes apart, the new Spring/Summer collection presents innovative prints and patterns along with some pretty impressive fleece work, with a melancholic feel to it. I really hope the owl mask is also part of the collection because I’m definitely getting my hands on that.
