2. Fashion Designers Finally Notice That Hot Dude

3. Sept Bonnes Raisons de porter le Teddy

Le blouson de base-ball, appelé aussi teddy – comme le prénom le plus laid au monde –, est le cousin d‘Amérique du blazer écussonné anglais qui permet de s‘identifier clairement auprès de ses adversaires. Coupe flatteuse, déluge de couleurs voyantes et signes d‘appartenance cousus sur le coeur, il a tout pour plaire à un jeune en pleine socialisation. Sa légende est dans toutes les têtes via GQ France

4.  How Levi’s 501s Maintain Their Iconic Status?

6. Warby Parker Sees the Future of Retail

“We’re often asked why Warby has been successful. If we sum it up in one word, it’s deliberate.” Gilboa finishes the thought: “We just want to make sure we’re not making mistakes.” “Innovation is often the product of mistakes made, of caution thrown to the wind. And yet, the ability to be disruptive and quietly meticulous might just be the difference between a bubble-fueled fad and a business built to last.” via FC

Four Things You didnt Know About Society of Revellers

Four Things You didn’t Know About Society of Revellers

RVLLR Mots du Jour

What we’ll do is continue down the path of mixing technologies.”

— Uber’s Jeff Holden

1.How did you get your start in design?

I was first interested in becoming a pilot. Then my passion for drawing characters and clothes grew. At this point, I wanted to become a fashion illustrator became an obsession. This became more apparent when I went to primary school. Back then, I had to take mandatory Arts Plastiques (graphic design classes). It was at this moment I found out that I really liked designing. This was in the early 1990s, when designs consisted of graphics, bande dessinee(comic books) , croquis, art, and fashion portraits. So it was a seamless transition from trying to become a fashion illustrator to becoming a fashion creative director and designer.

My goal has always been to make the plan, start small, perfect it, then grow. As Hov said, slow money is better than no money

At Society of Revellers, we noticed that our designs got stronger when we became more focused. We gave our designing process structure. We now have a set amount of fabrics, colors, and styles per color and fabric, and we design into that. It forces us to become more focused and more clear. It’s like a sonnet, a poem that has structure. Every creative thing needs some sort of structure.

2.Where do you find inspiration?

I believe that inspiration is all around us. From being in Cote d’Ivoire and now in Canada, I always try to make the best out of my environment .  It is cold where I am currently in Ottawa so you spend considerable time online to expose yourself to other creative artists. The reveller motto is that you have to always be mentally and visually aware of your surroundings . Solitude also helps to find a sense of inspiration to be found somewhere. It can be a book. It can be a website. Sometimes, you get inspired by a person that you see walking down the street or in public transformation. Always remain open to new ideas, as a major part of the job as a designer. Like combinations. Across everything, we do fabric combinations exceptionally well. It’s our bread and butter. Whether it’s shirting with two different prints, or a leather jacket with a wool sleeve and ribbed collar, the sum is more exciting than the individual parts.

3.Describe the Reveller guy.

He’s into fashion and likes to look good. He cares about the clothes on his body. He doesn’t live and breathe fashion, but he cares. He’s our friend, he’s us, he’s someone we’re hanging out with. He doesn’t have to be a guy in fashion. He likes quality. When he buys something, he wants to buy it as an investment. He’s not into throwaway fashion or trends. He’s into classic menswear with a twist, cool, and interested in the world around him. We constantly think about the customer, especially in our talks with each other. Would our friend wear this? When someone puts our clothes on, they’re going to feel right. A little cooler, without trying too hard or thinking too much.

4. What do you love most about your job?

We create content that educates and moves people. Nous sommes bilingues. Being open to what goes on around me, soaking it up, and doing something with it that’s appropriate to the brand I work for. It all feels very natural to me, almost like a hobby. Creating and producing a collection that can be sold. I love the show Shark Tank.On it, most people have one product that they’ve worked on for years. We’re selling 300 products a year, and we have to get them all right, from different sources and factories, and sell them on a wholesale level to retailers. It can be rough, because there are so many different pieces to the puzzle.

RVLLR Mots du Jour: 

“People read without sharing, but just as often, perhaps, they share without reading.”
— Derek Thompson
“A rapidly increasing birth rate, parents having children later in life and a glut of baby-boomer grandparents with more disposable income have combined to make childrenswear a highly lucrative business.” via the Guardian

2. Alexander Wang and the Tunnel of Branding

“Wang’s earlier collections often suggested innocence — the joy, let’s say, of being young in New York — and that quality has been gradually stamped out as he expeditiously builds a brand.” via NYMag

3. India may become launchpad for Amazon’s fashion label

Amazon plans to create its own brands in the booming fashion and lifestyle segment in the country, making India perhaps the first country where the US e-commerce giant has its own private fashion labels, two people familiar with the company’s plans said via Times

The fledgling designer needs stronger feedback from the fashion world. I honestly think that it’s the whole tumblr generation/phenomenon that has a lot to do with the lack of critical approach. People’s knowledge of the history, not just of fashion, but culture, is as deep as their laptop screen. Read more here

5. Bitcoin is Good Money: If you acknowledge that money is simply a language to communicate value, you quickly realize that bitcoin stacks up well.

Money is generally misunderstood, which contributes to the confusion about bitcoin as a digital currency. If you acknowledge that money is simply a language to communicate value and you evaluate bitcoin objectively on the six important characteristics of money that are taught in a basic economics course, you quickly realize that bitcoin stacks up well against any form of money that has ever existed via BoF

10. In the Fragrance Industry, a Whiff of Change is in the Air

“The big perfume players are catching on, even if most aren’t tinkering with their most popular commercial brands. Instead, they are bringing the niche stars into their folds.” via The Globe and Mail

Hipstory by Amit Shimoni

Hipstory by Amit Shimoni

Amit Shimoni is an artist who decided to take on world leaders and re-imagine them as modern hipsters. The results are quite good and we must say that we were impressed at the Revellers HQ. According to Design Boom, “designer amit shimoni illustrates a union of the two by pairing painted portraits of famous world leaders with the outfits and hairstyles of today’s youth. In the ‘hipstory’ series, che guevara sports a colorful beanie, layered flannel shirts and american spirit tabacco in his pocket; john f kennedy dons a nose ring, chains and t-shirt, seemingly bearing a black and white picture of marilyn monroe; mahatma gandhi’s peaceful personality is reflected in a tie-dye top and 60s-style shades”.

Revellers Story : For the lady reveller who needs a good laugh

Revellers Story : For the lady reveller who needs a good laugh

christianmaldonadoab74ac51a60ef6c88741f1b41198f34d

I  was told this story by a good friend of mine. Amani and I wanted to share  this with our lady revellers. When told this story, my friend mentioned to me that the morale was that hopefully some ungrateful men will learn from this.

A married couple in their early 60s are celebrating their
40th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic
little restaurant.

Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table. She said, ‘For being such an exemplary married
couple and for being loving to each other for
all this time, I will grant you each a wish.’

The wife answered, ‘Oh, I want to travel around the world
with my darling husband.’

The fairy waved her magic wand and – poof! – two
tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her hands.

The husband thought for a moment:
‘Well, this is all very romantic, but an
opportunity like this will never come again. I’m
sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30
years younger than me.’

The wife, and the fairy, were deeply disappointed,
but a wish is a wish.!

So the fairy waved her magic wand and
poof!…

The husband became 92 years old.

The moral of this story:
Men who are ungrateful should
remember fairies are female……
