The guys over at Concepts are evidently all about that “so fugly, it’s dope” trend in Fashion (Prada has been doing this for years) or at least that seems to be what inspired their New Balance collaboration. They are loaded up with every colour imaginable and even reflective 3M tape (which may actually help save a few fashionlovers as they jaywalk at night). Put it bluntly, they are ugly. But I must admit, I do love these 998s.


They launch online and in store today. Buy them before they sell out.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
