Fashion Fridays: Riddim Driven Cultjah Clash Lookbook + Tee Giveaway

Words by LargeUp Crew, Video by Reid Van Renesse, Photos by Reid Van Renesse and Stephanie Chin—


For their fall collection, VP Records-affiliated Riddim Driven Clothing tapped LargeUp contributor Reid Van Renesse to film a two-part video lookbook in Flatbush and Coney Island, taking the theme of Cultjah Clash. They released a short teaser video recently—Part 1 (that’s the first video below)—and have given us Part 2—the main feature—to premiere right here (that’s the second video below). Watch the clips, and get a closer look at the wares in the photos below. Pay close attention, because we’re gonna test you. Nahhh, not really, but tell us which shirt from the line you like best in the comments section, and one winner selected at random will get a prize pack of T-shirts and a Reggae Gold 2012 CD from VP Records. Make sure to leave your proper e-mail so we can contact you.

Fashion Fridays: Supreme Wallabees

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Earlier this year, Clarks Originals and Supreme collaborated on a new spin on Clarks’ Desert Mali low shoe (“doing their part to bridge the gap between Wu-Tang and Odd Future generations,” as we remarked at the time), and the two iconic brands have teamed up once again. Just in time for the now-wrapping Fashion Week 2012 is this crocodile print-embossed nubuck flip on the classic Wallabee. No info on where to get these, or any idea of they come in colorways other than the fine “cognac” you see here, but trust, we’re looking into it. While we’re talking about all things Supreme and Clarks, Ghostface Killah recently indicated that his next album will be called Supreme Clientele Presents Blue & Cream: The Wally Era. Does that mean we can expect a return of the Wu Wear Wallys?

Fashion Fridays: YB Afraid

Words by Erin MacLeod–

Yohan Blake is not only a multi-medal winner at the London Olympics, but he’s also the founder of a foundation that bears his name. The YB Afraid Foundation began in 2011 with the goal of working to “support organizations and develop programs that address the educational, physical and mental health and social needs of underprivileged youth.” This year, the foundation developed a whole line of tshirts–they can be purchased exclusively at Joseph’s locations in Jamaica for 1500 JMD. The shirts are incredibly soft and comfortable–they come in white, black, green, yellow and red and all proceeds go straight to the foundation.

Words by Emily Shapiro—

Last year, our friend, the fabulous Anya Ayoung-Chee, repped hard for her country, Trinidad and Tobago, on Project Runway, even naming her final collection, “Tobago Love.” Not only did she win the competition but she was voted the fan favorite.
