The clashing colours and monochome heart  print actually work really well in this outfit.

I love when an outfit contradicts itself …a combination of smart vs casual… (oopp!! just spotted Alan in the in background heheeee)

 

SOO000….It came as no surprise when we spotted our very own CEO/Creative Director and Designer Alan and Vidal photographed on Complex website in the street style section. The super cool duo set the pace by wearing  the iconic and trendy Green and blue suede VA Bomber Jackets (part of the VA Authentic winter collection).

The Art of Fashion

I have always had a love for designers who constantly do the unexpected and Iris van Herpen is one designer who undoubtably does that.  Since launching her label in 2007, Dutch fashion designer Van Herpen has become one of the most talked about names in the fashion industry to date. Known for her innovative creations and super extravagant style, van Herpen pushes the limits of creativity with her interesting use materials.

Van Harpen collaborates with United Nude to present their 6th architectural shoe collaboration  for her  haute couture collections. So I thought I would show you all just how amazingggGGGGGG this shoe collaboration and their archive is. Every time I see these shoes (not to mention every single collection Van Harpen has ever done) I stare at them in ore and amazement. Check em out yo!!!

First up we have CARIOLE

2011-11-collaborations-iris-x-un-capriole-01

All footwear for Iris van Herpen’s show was created in collaboration with United Nude. The designs were so intensely conceptual, that production was limited to the four catwalk pairs only!! Imagine trying to walk in those bad boys!!!

Next  up we have BEYOND WILDERNESS

2013-06-collaborations-iris-x-un-wilderness-01_Fotor

I am not going to lie but this heels look kind of scary BUT amazing at the same damn time.

…..And finally the latest design  meet “FANG”

2012-02-collaborations-iris-x-un-fang-01_Fotor

These bad boys  have ten sharp teeth to each shoe

2012-02-collaborations-iris-x-un-fang-03-2

No matter what!! Iris van Herpen’s designs consistantly demonstrate fashion as art. Her creations are clear artistic statements which women can express their unique character. I’m such a fan of the whole thought process that goes in to creating something as unique as this.

HATER SNAPBACK GOLD CANNABIS STUDS BUCKLEBACK & CANNABIS SNAPBACK

hater-snapback-gold-cannabis-studs-buckleback-cannabis-snapback-0

Hater Snapback dispatch another striking release, this time culling from the ubiquitous marijuana plant leaf in the Cannabis collection. While the Cannabis Snapback nods at a traditional snapback get-up — with the plant leaf as an all-over print and Hater’s trademark metallic plate at its crown — the Gold Cannabis Studs Snapback goes further with the metallic theme, with gold studs replacing the cannabis print and luxurious leather paneling throughout. The most conspicuous feature falls under the back buckle, where its crisp, golden accents punctuates the already bold design. Lookout for the Cannabis Collection to hit selected Hater Snapback retailers soon.

ORLEBAR BROWN BULLDOG MALIN EDITION SWIM SHORTS

orlebar-brown-bulldog-malin-edition-swim-shorts-0

Adam Brown is known for his versatile, trim-fitting trunks, but this season, the photographer-turned-fashion designer alludes to his first love with a trio of photorealistic swim shorts for Orlebar Brown. Printed with images from fellow photographer, Gray Malin, the trunks capture resort living at its finest — eye-catching designs that celebrate the beach, pool and waves of one’s ideal vacation spots. The mid-length Bulldog silhouettes, more importantly, are tailored and streamlined enough to take one from the beach to drinks in style, making these a worthwhile addition to any jet-setter’s rotation. Look for Orlebar Brown’s new summer swimwear now at retailers like Wrong Weather.

THE 4 STRIKE BIKE BY TSG ESSEMPIO

the-4-strike-bike-by-tsg-essempio-01

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT!!!!

By far one of the most visually striking bicycles we’ve come across in a while is the 4 Strike Bike by TSG Essempio. The innovative bike features the ability to pedal with both hands and feet at the same time for complete body movement. For those that want to only focus on one pair of limbs at a time, the crankshaft has a special freewheel system that allows the bike to be used with the legs alone. Whether or not the concept catches on waits to be seen, but the design is certainly intriguing.
