One of my favorite brands out there is MadeMe...they took a break for Spring/Summer 2010 but came back with a boom for Autumn/Winter 2010...This collection is as new York as it gets with military parkas...faux leather pant...grey cropped crewnecks.. the color scheme is mostly grey, black, and denim.. a stand out piece to me is the leather grey cheetah biker jacket.. The homage recreates the famous Paradise Garage by recreating the club logo to say MadeMe Manhattan.. The look book features Lady Miss Kier, Nina Sky, Kim Ann Foxman, Victoria Britto and Maluca Mala.. One thing that didn't make the look book but is on their website is a black and white Madonna leather vest...sooo dope!! Check it out and buy some shit at--->>> www.mademeclothing.com

I have been dying for some fall lines to drop and the time has finally come...Hellz puts in a lot of work and it shows...This brand is continuing to mature each season...there is a level of sophistication but still sticking to their streetwear roots...I love that it is mostly black...and all the pieces can be dressed up or dressed down..the details and shapes of this collection a ahhmazing....the evolution of this brand keeps me interested and always has me wanting more...good jobto the Hellz team!
Here is what Hellz has to say about this collection-
"This Fall 2010 marks the growth of Hellz, with a more experimental venture entitled ‘The Rest Is Her Story,’ a collection that conveys a classic story of vengeance while simultaneously exuding sensuality and ferocity. Drawing inspiration from revenge and exploitation films such as ‘Lady Snowblood’ and ‘Thriller,’ the collection makes use of a dark color palette to embody the mood & feel of both films. Black, white, and texture are prevalent throughout the collection and accentuate the unorthodox but innovative silhouettes with leather, trims and details. Pieces like the ‘Alice,’ a fitted blazer with exaggerated shoulders and back ruffle detail inspired by anti-heroines who display great strength and confidence while maintaining beauty and grace. Another interesting piece from the collection is the ‘Wonderland, ‘ a fine cotton jersey printed tunic with metal hooks and eye trims, that not only demonstrates the boldness and convention of film vixens, but the brand as a whole as well. A subtle color story, intelligent and experimental silhouettes and contrasting metal details culminate in an exhibition of daring feminine sexuality and confidence, truly proving that ‘The Rest Is Her Story.’"
