A post shared by Emma Mulholland (@emmamulholland) on
FIY: It’s hard not to pay attention to Mulholland’s signature bright colors, 90’s surf/streetwear inspired looks and trademark prints. Mulholland’s clothes may seem deafeningly loud to the untrained eye, however on close inspection the designs sing a different and fascinating tune. Shapes and silhouettes are wearable and flattering, while clusters of intricate embellishments, macramé texture and animal imagery weave a heartfelt recollection of her Australian beachside roots.

A post shared by OSKLEN USA (@osklenusa) on

Osklen offers men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, footwear, accessories and swimwear; it is a complete, global luxury brand. Oskar Metsavaht is the Creative Director of Osklen. He began his less than conventional career as an orthopedic doctor, delving into fashion, when a climbing expedition to the Andes in the 1980’s, prompted him to design and construct a high tech anorak. Encouraged to expand his foray into fashion, Metsavaht launched Osklen in 1989 as a lifestyle brand. Oskar also finds great passion in making Osklen as sustainably responsible as possible, by sourcing the most ethically produced products in Brazil, which includes fish skins sourced from local farms in the Amazon, he insures to create a better future for local towns in the area and eventually, the world. The Osklen brand is recognized internationally for its quality and innovative design; creating conceptually driven designs with sophisticated materials, special finishes, and an eye towards exclusivity. The Osklen aesthetic represents the lifestyles of modern men and women in a world where the urban and the naturalistic, the global and the local, the organic and the technological co-exist. Osklen has established itself as the leading Brazilian luxury fashion brand with stores located throughout the world. Osklen currently has two stores in the US, in New York City and Miami.
A post shared by Overthrow (@overthrownewyork) on
FYI: “The Home of Underground Boxing.” That’s not just a marketing ploy or clever tagline. Adapted from a series of illegal boxing parties and housed in a former activist hangout, Overthrow’s claim to the gritty underground is as palpable as it is deserved. In the ‘70s and ‘80s, 9 Bleecker was a meeting place for people who went against the grain— a countercultural hotspot where progressive thinkers gathered to challenge the system and orchestrate a revolution with the help of their monthly publication, “Overthrow.” Countless unconventional characters like Abbie Hoffman, Hunter S. Thompson, and Joey Ramone passed through these doors to partake in the uprising. They were the purveyors of an underground lifestyle that long defined the East Village as Manhattan’s edgiest hood. It’s a lifestyle built on the values of originality, irreverence, and radicalism and it continues to inform what we do here at Overthrow.
FYI: PAOM allows designers to upload their artwork all over various silhouettes to create high-quality,unique, and fun prints.

Now a fully-fledged ready-to-wear label, MISBHV exudes the youthful energy and DIY sensibilities of Maczek’s original designs, bringing together disparate elements of pop and sub cultures to form a uniquely and distinctively post-Soviet aesthetic. Aiming to straddle both the worlds of streetwear and luxury fashion, the Polish label’s experimental designs boast artisanal quality and premium European-sourced textiles. Deconstructed t-shirts and oversized hoodies featuring tongue-in-cheek graphics reference iconography of decades past, while the brand’s reconstructed denim and leather biker jackets elevate streetwear staples with avant-garde construction.
