Ah! Shelter x Nike x Dr Romanelli Mexico Launch

Earlier this month, Mexico’s Shelter played host to Dr. Romanelli’s triple-headed collaboration launch that also included Nike. Well known for his hybrid, customized styles, the pieces created embodied a certain Mexican flair over jackets and hats thanks to the choice in contrasting materials.

I've always wanted to add a Dr. Romanelli jacket to my collection, if they weren't so damned expensive. Personally, I've always had a thing for the jackets that he did for Maharishi, by taking remnants of assorted bomber jackets and war memorabilia and piecing them together to make some truly beautiful pieces. Don't even get me started on the stuff he did with Lupe Fiasco.

Those are the Maharishi x Dr. Romanelli jackets.
