A look at Xescape’s collection reveals a mature and sophisticated take on the everyday. A look at the 2007 Fall Collection reveals a series of garments largely inspired by culturally relevant factors such as music, pop art and the actual ongoings of the street. With a strong allegiance to quality and fit, the Xescape collection exhibits a new take on streetwear. Xescape is currently relatively difficult to come by in North America, however Fatlace (SF), Vinnies Styles (NY), Subdivision (Canada) and Kingsbury (LA) are among the select few to carry Xescape.

Gravis Blackbox by Staple Design

Staple Design are the masterminds behind this year’s Gravis Blackbox Collection. The timing correlated perfectly with Staple’s 10th Anniversary as they picked a theme which they felt best represented the seasonal snow and the city of New York during the winter. In addition, Staple also chose colors that gave an accurate description of the visual changes created by the falling snow. The resulting colors produced were named Fresh Powder, Wet Cement and Parking Lot. The collection features 3 pairs of sneakers, the Lodown, the Royale and the Dune. A luggage set including the Terminal Case, the Metro Backpack and the Jetway Rolling Case is also included. The collection is completed by a New Era 59Fifty fitted cap and a t-shirt.
