This season, YME Universe will include several series of "Staff Favorites", where our employee's will give you a private tour of the top 5 things they're craving right now and their seasonal favorites from our universe.
Next up is Morten, the department manager for our men's floor. Morten has been our numero uno since we first opened. His style is a beautiful juxtapositioning of high-end mixed with the right amount of streetwear. What we mean by that is that Morten can and will be seen in Saint Laurent, mixed with Adidas or Alyx mixed with Nike. His creativity when it comes to dressing the contemporary man makes us wonder - what are his favorites from the mens department?
Morten owns a lot of stand out pieces from the fresh new brand, ALYX. As you can see above, Morten mixes these industrial elements with sleek nike sneakers, black denims and sunglasses from Garreth Leight.
One of Morten's favorite pieces right now is the ALYX rollercoaster belt, here shown in the Mini Stubai version. This belt has been seen on everyone from Asap Rocky to Aleali May and is inspired by the rollercoaster belts used at Six Flags in the U.S. The belt is paired with one of Morten's most trusted pieces - black denim jeans. These ones are from the Norwegian-brand Tom Wood.
Morten also loves the t-shirt selection from ALYX Visuals, especially because the t-shirts are made of 50% cotton and 50% recycled polyester. The t-shirts feels very thick and luxurious - whilst still being incredibly soft.
One of the latest brands to enter YME Universe is Garreth Leight eyewear. Morten loves these sunglasses in particular because they can be folded up and placed in this neat little leather pouch.
Morten also loves a good read, and this book from Rizzoli on Fragment and Hiroshi Fujiwara is just what Morten wants right now on his coffee table for autumn winter 2017.
