Nike Flyknit Trainer+ Black White

 

The innovative Flyknit Trainer+ receives a new colourway that offers a more subtle option relative to its original releases. The sneaker’s dot-matrix weave at the toe gives the silhouette added texture while the two-toned black and white knitted upper is contrasted by a solid black “Swoosh” and black trim around the opening — a streak of black down the Nike Zoom cushioned sole completes the look. Known for its lightweight, material-saving design, the Flyknit uses a single layer upper that contours to the shape of the foot to deliver impressive support when needed.

Maison Martin Margiela x H&M Clothing & Accessories

 

Yesterday I showed you the footwar, today its the turn of the clothing & accessories.The obvious eye-catchers are the metallic scarfs and the guitar-shaped messenger bag, but the two high-top sneakers and array of slip-on’s and boots are hard to overlook. Mixed in with more traditional formal wear, such as a black and a tan 3-piece suit, is an inside-out mix denim coat, a two-tone blazer, a straight-jacket-inspired leather jacket, and a mix of sweaters. That’s not even half of it. Check all below the jury is out for me….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maison Martin Margiela for H&M 2012 Autumn Winter Footwear Collection

Never a label to follow blindly in the footsteps of others, Maison Martin Margiela‘s collaboration with Swedish retailer H&M will further distinguish itself from its predecessors with a collection of footwear. The Belgian fashion house announced earlier that the collection will consist of “re-editions” of archival classics and the shoes will follow suit — silhouettes taken from MMM’s back catalogs and reiterated for the mass consumer. Ardent fans of the label will likely recognize the 6 models that will release with the clothing — a gum-soled, high-top sneaker in white and red colorways, along with a slip-on and ankle boot that will be offered in tan, black and paint-treated versions. Look for more details of the November 15 release as they surface.
