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

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.

He bought a 15 carat diamond ring made by celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, rented out the home of the San Francisco Giants, arranged for the scoreboard to read “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” and brought in a 50-piece orchestra to play Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” and Keri Hilson and Neyo’s “Knock You Down.”

Rihanna Booted From Mosque For Taking Inappropriate Photos

rihanna7

Rihanna ran into a bit of trouble while visiting the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center in Abu Dhabi. The singer has been documenting her Diamonds World Tour by taking photos in a number of cities along the way and posting them on her Instagram.

However, some locals were not happy with the pictures taken at their Islamic place of worship.

“She was asked to leave before entering the actual mosque, (she was in the courtyard taking pictures) after taking some photos that did not fit within the rules and regulations set out to preserve the sacredness of the center,” the mosque said in a statement.

The pictures drew mixed reactions among Twitter users.

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.
