FLY53 – SS13 Collection

By January 17, 2013Fashion News

When we hear the words “vintage” or “retro”, we automatically think of our grandfather’s surprisingly cool knitted jumpers or an old, worn out leather jacket found at the back of a store in Brick Lane.

But there is one outdated item that is tip-toeing its way back in this season after a lengthy hiatus.

For some, the last time Kickers were worn was whilst they were still at secondary school, where the only way you could express yourself through style was to customise strict uniforms, however this somewhat ‘retro’ choice of footwear seems to be gaining popularity again – not just with young students.

As they celebrate their 40th birthday Kickers proves to the rest that it is a timeless brand that is still popular even today; the shoe that first appeared in the 1970s continues to polish and complete outfits for everyone, whether their style is indie, urban or punk.

It seems as if we at PAUSE aren’t the only ones to still applaud their comfort, practical structure and simple design.

Now available in a new range of colours and styles, it is impossible to not find a Kicker to go with a must-have trench coat or the perfect winter knitwear but PAUSE still recommends the old-school Kick Hi for a new-school way to stay on trend:

Stomp your way over to your local shoe store or visit Kickers online directly for the return of your childhood essential.

“IN CHAOS WE TRUST” a mantra not for the faint-hearted; but Fly53 is exactly that – not faint-hearted at all.

With their SS13 taking it up to whole different level the label is reaching new heights, showcasing even bolder prints and daring patterns than their last season. Fly53 brings the old school to the new, these are designs that you’ll want to wear for the style as well as the creativity.

But be mindful, the brand is not one to shy away from the use of colour from the blazes of orange and red bandanas, to the hues of the blue and yellow Fly53 actually pull off Hawaiian holiday shirts, as well as producing an oxymoron in fashion; pleasant gang-culture and the well known Colonel as a skull motif? Applause indeed.

If you’re one for creative and unusual, they label boasts of fashionable outerwear including hoodies, sweatshirts and their returning windbreaker. With a slogan like “Outfitters of the Resistance” only the brave may take on Fly53. We dare you!
