How Virgil Abloh Painted Culture’s Sistine Chapel OFF-WHITE

37 year old Virgil Abloh is old enough to know better and young enough to still try that shit. It’s the process. His ancestory is as Ghanaian as our World Cup foe, but he’s also as Chi Town as they come, a native of Rockford Ill, he grew up in the shadows of the Windy City and then went to college at University of Wisconsin, where he got a degree in Architechture and civil engineering that more or less just affirmed he was a visionary. He’s using his degree. Even tho the laymen wouldn’t assume so. He’s the architect of civil engineering in culture. Period. Since 2011 he’s been building the cultural metro we operate in. In 2011 he was the creative mind behind Kanye and Jay Z’s seminal “Watch The Throne” – a record so big it defied genre and became somewhat of a rock opera, a “We Are…

5 Men’s Bags to Add to Your Fall Fashion Collection

A lot of men use a standard backpack as their go to man bag, but some of us want something more exciting – something with a little more edge and eye catching qualities. There are times when men’s bags are painfully simple and bland, resulting in a multitude of the same concepts in a limited array of styles, colors, and overall design. This gripe is thankfully resolved thanks to some dope brands like GucciGhost and IISE that offer bags to compliment your attire no matter the occasion, and you can find them here on Wanderset. Varying from subtle to elaborate, there are a plethora of designs and styles of men’s bags to choose from. Need a simple backpack for the work week? No problem. Need an eye catching designer pouch for an upscale event? We’ve got that too. Whatever your style needs are, there’s a bag out there that will…

Here’s Lookin’ At Ariel G

Ariel G. is not a household name. Yet. Everyone in his circle pretty much is, and that says it all. He prefers to play the background, to move smoothly around the globe, leaving his vision and touch on various cities, his footprint in billions of Youtube views, and his pallet and style imitated by more unassuming people around the planet than we can count. Today one of the places he’s touching is Morocco, one of the most beautiful nations on the globe. He’s in the desert with latin superstar Daddy Yankee. If you’ve ever heard the song “Attitude” by Alien Ant Farm, you’ll know what Morocco feels like. The winding Spanish guitar riff that could charm a snake, the haunting transistor radio effect on lead singer Dryden Mitchell’s vocals, and in memorial energy is indicative of the nation’s mystique and spice. Its spacey and punchy, other-worldly and raw, surreal and…

#SetList : The World In Black X White

Monochromatic is timeless. It’s sleek, classic, and always goes down well. Black and white finds a way to be both minimalist and sleek, brooding and elegant, striking and withdrawn. Not to mention streetwear has been trending towards clean, minimal noir e blanco since 2015 anyway. Here are 5 pieces we love in this vein from lines like Bomb Clothing, En|Noir and more. 5. BOMB BCC TECH JACKET If Trent Reznor worked as a Tokyo police explosives specialist in the future, he would rock the hell out of this fire from BOMB Clothing. 4. COMME des GARCONs “PLAY” 000000xFFFFFF HEARTS Minimalistic pop art at it’s finest. Haring and Warhol would be overjoyed with this Comme Des Garcons piece. 3. DISORDER BY LE FIX The mock turtle neck late 90’s look is back heavily this fall, and European street wear kings Le Fix crushed it. 2. JAGGER BUTTON…

The 5 Best Dressed Boxers Of All Time

Boxing & Fashion have always gone hand in hand. Back in the day, being the heavyweight champ of the world allowed you to kick it with the everyone from the Italian Mafia, to the President. During the Kennedy administration, you could hang with both at the same time. Being a pugilist meant something. North eastern boxing writer Mike Natalino has a theory – that boxers carried the weight of their people in their American tale, so they had to dress for that mantle. The Italian immigration wave saw Marciano and LaMotta rise to the top of the sport, no doubt propelled by the emotional pulse of their paisons. The civil rights era of the 50’s-70’s saw fighters like Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson, and countless other black men emerge and lift their people’s hearts. Hispanic fighters from the 70’s and 80’s like Roberto Duran carried the mantle for the latin population,…

In Defense Of Holy St. Yeezus

There hasn’t been as polarizing a figure as Kanye West in a while. Try to recall the last cat who divided debates so aggressively, who lead the market so fearlessly, and who fucked up so publically, and it was all a part of their ethos. Maybe Axl Rose. Maybe. But Axl wasn’t a fashion icon, a designer (or re-designer) of absolutely everything, and social media wasn’t yet even a thing. Shit, neither was the Internet. A few years after Axl Rose’s heyday saw the first wave of America Online. Those times and not these times. There’s always two ways to view Kanye West. If you love him, you see his vision, root for his angst and outbursts, applaud his drive, and support his relentless endeavor diving. He’s an innovator, a renaissance man, and a rebel. He is equally, and fluidly, both “Jesus Walks” and “Hey Mama” Ye, and “Yeezus”…

The 20 Year Cycle Of Fashion + Culture.

Wanderset Breaks Down Why 2017 Feels Alot Like 92-97, And Explores The Theory That Everything Repeats Itself On A 20-25 Year Grid.  When I was 17 I used to skip class in New Haven, CT and go hang on the green or at pubs in the Arts District a ton. I used to have conversations with bums, doctors, gangsters and Yale students alike. It expanded me. To be honest, my class cutting adventures are probably the reason I do anything I do now. It was a period of huge growth. Ironically, the hobos would say the most expansive things. There was this one cat, who they called “Money” (the proverbial they stay giving out ironic names, I swear) who told me this theory about how culture in general was on a 20-25 year cycle. Music and fashion all took two decades to circle. Nothing proves Money was actually money on…
