J. Shoes @ Compass

29 July 2008, 16.34 | Posted in Fashion, Shoes | No comments »

Spring 2009 will be a good season, I’ll bet, for women’s footwear. A lot of new ideas sprung up during 2008 and it’s looking like a lot of them will be expanded on and combined for next spring. Here’s a spring 2009 J.Shoe style that combines gladiator looks on a platform with Native American detail influences.

Creative Rec @ Compass

I made it out to Vegas! First thing I did was to visit the Compass show, a long overdue, hip, alternative to the WSA shoe show. It was mostly men’s shoes, but there was some great stuff there for women, too. First up, Creative Rec, which has been killing it with its women’s product:

^^As you can see, hightops are preparting to go higher AND glossier. These are just stunning.

Miguel Androver is Baaaaack Hooray!!!!

28 July 2008, 17.09 | Posted in Art, Common Sense, Design, Fashion | No comments »

miguel Miguel Androver is Baaaaack Hooray!!!!

Fashion like Art, is a platform of expression seldomley exploited by designers, very rarely do they use their creative platforms to not just please buyers  and  say something about Social Issues ,present their line on average non-model folk or just have a wide spectrum of ethnicities on the runway..

Miguel Androver is one of those who won my appreciation when I attended his show in 2004 ,if my memory is the correct even the program was designed as a Travel boarding pass..the show (snapshot above)was a visual treat with poignant social undertones….According to WWD he’s back !

and that makes me one happy camper!

Sneaker and Style etiquette: Hogan is here!!!

 Sneaker and Style etiquette: Hogan is here!!!  

When it  comes to sneakers I understand that given your occupation or lifestyle you might not be able to leave the house rocking a pair Bright hi tops,There are alot of major corporations with very tight dresscodes….  Sneaker and Style etiquette: Hogan is here!!!

Nevertheless when companies like Hogan exist there is nor reason why you should be wearing your Donna Karan Suit with your running sneakers!You just end up looking very random…or   that you should run out the house with a fur coat and a pair of kicks on that are so old the brand is not visible..no excuses…get it together..if you’re upscale enough to rock fur in this day and age then I’m sure you can gather the "moula" for decent kick around footwear….right?

Happy Monday!
