KanyeDropoutBearGivenchy Kanye Dropout Bear Updated With Givenchy + Nike Air Yeezy Kicks

Not sure who the artist is, but someone updated Kanye’s trademark Dropout Bear with an ensemble featuring Givenchy plus his Nike Air Yeezy kicks. And is the gold-plate necklace a reference to those featured in his Spring 2012 runway? Via Electrostaticluv.

Nike x The Lake & Stars Air Force 1

11 November 2011, 19.20 | Posted in Uncategorized | 4 comments »

The Lake&Stars(1)

We mentioned a collaboration between Nike and The Lake & Stars on an Air Force 1 style last week, and now we have the brand’s designers, Nikki Dekker and Maayan Zilberman, flashing the outcome of their efforts. The shoe is the first Air Force one to feature the collaborative brand’s name on the strap and features black suede on black canvas, with green soles and silver tipping. It’s available by special order in both women’s and men’s sizes and for those who’d like a more hands-on look, the shoe is currently on display in the window of The Lake & Stars pop-up shop, which opened at Walker Street in New York, yesterday and will be open through November 23rd.

Kanye In Givenchy Bomber + Leather Kilt

KanyeLeatherKilt 300x540 Kanye In Givenchy Bomber + Leather Kilt

Thanks to a video tape showing Kanye West going off on the lighting guy for messing up the lights (though some are saying it’s part of the act and he’s doing the same thing in all his shows) for “All Of The Lights” during his “Watch The Throne” concert this past weekend, a lot of people are also noticing the outfit West performed in. The top is Givenchy but no one seems to have identified the leather skirt yet (perhaps lent by Marc Jacobs?). The kicks are the Nike Air Yeezy style launching later this month. 

Anyway, interesting to see rap fashion trend less conservatively. From Lil Wayne’s leopard leggings to now Kanye in a skirt, it certainly makes for more compelling entertainment. And who knows, maybe it’s a positive sign that rap is becoming less obsessed with the “no homo” sadness of the early 00s.

Kanye In Leather Pants + Nike Air Yeezy + Apple

02 November 2011, 16.32 | Posted in Sneakers, celebrity | 2 comments »


Kanye rocks relaxed-fit leather jeans to perfection, pairing them with a vee-neck charcoal sweater and his soon-to-be-launched Nike Air Yeezy kicks, which a sneaker buyer  tells us will launch on Black Friday. This is a look that any female could wear, too, and yet it still works for a guy like Kanye who has a feel for style plus loads of confidence. Nice Apple laptop Kanye is toting, too……can’t help but wondering what juicy files are to found therein!

The Lake & Stars x Nike Air Force 1


Via Refinery we learn lingerie brand The Lake & Stars is collaborating with Nike on an Air Force I, which has to be on some top-ten list in terms of unexpected partnerships. In this image, one of the The Lake & Stars designers is working with Nike employee Weston on choosing the color and detailing for the custom pair so it’s highly unlikely that you’re seeing the finished shoe as opposed to a an office sample used to work against in building the collaboration.

The shoe is being built for the The Lake & Stars pop up store, which is set to launch on November 10th. The slight hitch with the pop-up we learned from Racked yesterday, is the sponsoring organization, BOFFO, used up all it’s money on Nicola Formichetti’s pop up and may not have enough cash to do any more pop ups. One hopes it all works out–wanna see the sneakers!

Nike Air Rift MTR Metallic Gold

Highsnobette-Gold Nike Air rift

The timeless  Nike Air Rift silhouette gets a very appropriate metallic treatment . While I would have loved to see a little pop of  neon somewhere, the look is still on point. Fresh and fun to rock now or to put on ice for Spring. Available  also in silver at Zappos, more angles on the flip.

Video: Ellie Goulding Runs For Nike

19 October 2011, 14.57 | Posted in Music, activewear, advertisement | No comments »

Well this is sort of fascinating–Nike markets its runing shoes via U.K. singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding in a video that shows her both running and performing. Interesting to me anyway because Nike has always been obsessed with promoting itself to the world as rooted in performance. Speak to its p.r. people for an article or listen to any speech made by executives and you can basically use the word “performance” as the basis of a drinking game–they use the word that often in an almost mantra-like way.

And yes, Nike has done collaborations with artists, designers, musicians, etc. but it’s my recollection that when it comes to technical product Nike always connects that product to recognized athletes. This sort of change in strategy where Nike positions musicians as athletic-like performers follows the lead of Adidas’s “All In” campaign, which features both athletes and musicians. Not sure of the implications, but definitely it will be interesting to see if the mighty Swoosh continues down this path. Via Ffg.

Hurley x Nike x Otis College ‘Considered’ Exhibit

18 October 2011, 16.59 | Posted in Art, Designer Collaboration | No comments »

HurleyxNike (5)

In an effort to promote greater sustainability in fashion, Hurley and Nike collaborated with Otis College on a student-designed collection whose themes were based on the Nike considered index tool, which, according to press includes three themes:

The first, regenerative, is a focus on reusing, recycling or repurposing materials, garments or found objects to create new apparel expressions. The second, heirloom, challenges students to create classic, timelessly valuable designs that improve with age and use. And the third, sustainable sesign, is a modern approach to design solutions, teaching students to consider low impact, environmentally positive supply chains and defy traditional approaches to apparel design through creative use of construction, materials and process.

The 18-look capsule collection debuted in Spring 2011 via a live runway show at The Beverly Hilton, and will be presented at Hurley’s H Space Gallery, kicking off with a VIP reception this Thursday, October 20th until December 16th. It then heads to Beaverton, where it will be displayed at Nike’s headquarters.
