Skittles: Armani Exchange Concept

We recently caught up with Stefan Brown AKA Skittles to see what he was working on during his internship at Armani / Exchange.

This project was given to me based on the demand for a new style men’s watch within the brand. The watch was to be established as an A|X style watch based on its key characteristics and features with a sports style.

This watch was designed purely for aesthetics, with function being secondary. Inspiration stemmed from divers watches, with the ratcheting bezel and a subtle use of color pop which acts as a superluminova accent under water.

Features: One eye chronograph movement, sub-eye tracks seconds, minutes and hours, and dial states military time.

Consumer: (Male 18-35 years), busy, on the go lifestyle, to do date on current trends, and has a key attention to detail.

Price point: Retail $600

 

 

 

MESH01 July Talent Show

In June we ran the first MESH01 Talent Show so that designers could show off some of their skills through new or existing work.  We where so impressed that we decided to do it again in July.  The timeline was short, but you came through, the work is fantastic.  We wanted to take the chance to show off some of our favorite designs, but you can see all of the designs HERE.

The Flat Pack Footwear by MKatchi

MKatchi really impressed us with her flat pack designed footwear.  These shoes where designed to be affordably produced and shipped flat to aid refugees.  Not only does this shoe accomplish humanitarian needs, we also think it is quite fashionable.  It would be great to see a shoe like this sold in stores with a Tom’s type of model where everyone sold also buys one for charity.  See more images of MKatchi’s Flat Pack Footwear.
