“Cash rules everything around, C.R.E.A.M, get the money…dolla dolla bill y’all…”

There is no need to adjust your computer monitor, the image see here is actually “pixelated” to begin with. Not one with a conventional approach to design, Jeremy Scott will add on some “8-bit fun” this coming season with his new adidas Originals JS Wings 2.0 “Pixels”. Identical to the former JS Wings 2.0 with the exception of pixelated wings and adidas‘ three-strip, we can only imagine what the apparel collection will look like once the collection as a whole comes out later on this year.

While we may be just getting used to the warmer temps, Wings + Horns is already looking ahead toward the Fall/Winter 2013 season, continuing on in their own lane; never veering off course, never missing a stylistic beat. This year, the Canadian brand takes inspiration from London’s modernist youth movement of the late 1950′s, where wovens and tartans play in the spotlight alongside rich melange cottons and textured wools. Classic styles receive updated details, but leave the look itself alone, adding water resistancy, increases in breathability, and new colors to the prints, as seen in the colorful nylon fishtail parka, a heavy melton wool bomber, and primaloft insulation stitched into shirting and vests. Fall colorways also take center stage with oxblood, camel, and deep sea creating a cohesiveness throughout, adding even more depth to the sharp looking collection. Preview the rest of the collection after the click and be on the lookout for the entire season’s worth of apparel to hit later this year.
