Married To The Mob x Casio Baby G Watch

 

Check out the promo video for Married to the Mob’s collaboration with Casio Baby G. It features made M.O.B. woman, Sarah McSweeney, and puts a spotlight on some of the brand’s past collaborations, including a design hook up with Nike and MCM. The video also gives a nod to McSweeney’s love of cooking and her aspirations to become a chef, a factoid we uncovered in an interview we did so long ago we can’t even link to it!

Converse Prom Sneakers

A cute idea whose time is long past due–sneakers for prom. We’ve been harping on this for a while, but for women in their teens and twenties (and thirties, forties and up if they’re on the progressive side), sneakers are a part of their fashion wardrobe. And it’s funny, too, as much as we feature sky-high heels (see previous post!), I’ve been noticing lately in my travels around New York that one of the defining characteristics of younger women is that they do not wear much in the way of heels. Tons of military boots, canvas lace-ups and flats, but not much past half an inch. Via Glamour.

A couple more styles on the next page, more at Converse.   Read more

Adidas Originals and Jeremy Scott continue to have a lot of fun working together, boldly going where no sneaker designers dare to go. Especially given that the dictate these days is more about sleak, clean and light, unlike this mid sneaker, which stuffs every loudly-colored material known to human kind on one shoe. Only Scott can do this and make it work–he has special powers, which never last forever, but they’re at their height right now. Image courtesy of Highsnobiety, where you can find more details.

Video: Vans x Jesse Jo Stark

A cute video of Katy Perry for Adidas as part of its “All In” ad campaign, in which the pop star bats those big doll eyes of hers and chats about what inspires her. She also mentions her favorite designers, which, no shocker, one of them is Jeremy Scott who is part of the campaign, too.

Alexa Chung For Superga

30 March 2011, 16.51 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Sneakers, advertisement | 4 comments »

Superga looks to Alexa Chung to sprink her magic fairy fashion dust on the brand, which has struggled to make headway in the U.S. market (not sure how it’s held up in Europe–probably better as it’s Italy-based). Whether or not she succeeds in upping the brand’s profile on our side of the pond, it’s nice to see a woman known for trend-setting speak to the appeal of sneakers. We’ve always found it odd that fashion mags more or less ignore the casual side of women’s wardrobes as though we only care about style as it applies to work or eveningwear.
