The NEIGHBORHOOD Fall/Winter 2011 "Gimme Shelter" Collection = Wild, Wild Fresh!

"Neighborhood presents the first releases of their new Fall/Winter 2011 ‘Gimme Shelter’ Collection. Next to the usual solid range of denim, the Japanese brand presents shirts, pullovers, some light weight late summer jackets and a very nice range of accessories, including sunglasses, keychains, hats and a pair of boots."

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Ironically, as the median household income has virtually dropped across the entire world, there remains pockets of people with deep enough pockets to insulate themselves from the everyday humdrum hunger pains that afflict the abject commoner. Some are separated from us by tall cast-iron gates enclosed in comfy localized cul-de-sac communities while still others belong to a more far reaching global neighborhood of well to do muthafuckas. It is to those rarefied individuals - barring that they share an international fashion sense coupled with a youthful eye for fashion as well - that Japan's premier posh streetwear label NEIGHBORHOOD Technical Apparel label appeals.

Founded in 1994 by Shinsuke Takizawa, NEIGHBORHOOD has come to represent not only the height of Harajuku, Tokyo metropolitan mode, but also contemporary urban high fashion around the world. Not too shabby, huh? But, all of these accolades come @ a *Cue Larry David Voice* "pretty, pretty, pretty" steep price ... to the consumer. Yes, as well as having established a stellar reputation as a cutting edge brand that traffics in irrefutably high quality clothes they are equally well known for their ex-fucking-orbinant prices. Ahem, $800 jeans anyone? Yeah, it's like that homie.

Anyway, the NEIGHBORHOOD Fall/Winter 2011 "Gimme Shelter" Collection is precisely the beaucoup bucks style bonanza that fans have come to expect and pay for from this brilliant boutique brand. This latest collection features t-shirts, pullovers, button-downs, jackets, a pair of boots and accessories alongside their typically decadent denims all of which look to be largely inspired by South-West United States of America imagery and themes.

My Advice To The Ambitious Livestyle Shopper: Target 1 or 2 of these pieces from this range, hit your Nike shoebox (NOTE: Or wherever it is that Y.O.U. stash your fetti ... lol) and prepare to drop a few pretty pennies on your selection(s). Suuuuuuuure, 99.9% of your friends won't know what you're wearing OR be able to somehow wrap their tiny brains around why Y.O.U. just dropped a month's rent on it, but isn't that part of the fun anyway? Exactly. If you're gonna fly, you had better fly high! Good shit!
