CHUCK TAYLER WELLINGTON'S


Converse is not changing it's shoe game but reinvented their worldwide beloved canvas Chuck Taylor's for the upcoming fall and decided that it's in need of rubber, fully made of rubber....really cool right!!

They come in black, yellow, blue, white and red. The retailprice is just around $100 and available worldwide from this month.

I feel that these Chuck's will be the new IT-shoe for festivals and beach days.



MATTHIEU BLAZY, MISTER MMM !!!

Suzy Menkes shocked and surprised the fashion world by telling who the designer is behind the spectacular fashion house MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA....MATTHIEU BLAZY. isn't that something. But is this announcement a good thing or would we rather prefer the mystery? Only time will tell.

PANTONE AT COLETTE

Earlier this year I got my fashion journalism certificate. Ones we received homework to pitch one well worked out idea for three different magazines, I chose color institute Pantone as my mane subject because what's fashion without color (even if it's black).

So I suggested a photoshoot for ELLE: colored background, model totally painted in an opposite color with the latest fashion. The other one was for MARIE CLAIRE: A guided tour through the Pantone factory plus interview with executive director Leatrice Eiseman about the color of the year 2014 "Radiant Orchid" and finally for GRAZIA: The best shop list you can think of selected with the help of those amazing Pantone color cards. Not bad right?

I handed over my homework with all things named and planned like location, writer, model, photographer ect ect I received it back with just one comment from my teacher (in RED!!!) "What's up with you and this Pantone business, to farfetched for fashion"

UHM I DON'T THINK SO....PANTONE TEES AND SWEATSHIRTS NOW AVAILABLE AT COLETTE, THAT'S FASHION !!!

TOM FORD A/W 14 CAMPAIGN AD

The new TOM FORD A/W14 ad campaign by Johnny Dufort.

Gigi, Sabrina, Ella, Valentijn, Yaya, Lida, Ashleigh and Natalie are the stars who model these amazing garments, The styling is based on their identity which makes is more wearable in my opinion.


Mister Ford is on top of things when it comes to the fashion industry and selected a transgender model to shine in this campaign. Mr myself is loving this new era of androgynism !!!
