I mean we’ve been doing it for such a long time that it sort of comes natural to us. That’s whats so great about being a person. The capability to create or surpass anything that can make like more fun, convenient or simply beneficial. This falls into the fun department. And it’s roller blades on acid. [ Continue Reading ]

nina hjorth 504x400 Bright Steps AheadIt’s more than just a shoe– it’s a work of art. Check out the Spring collection from 29-year-old Danish designer Nina Hjorth.  A graduate of both Graeme Armour and the Royal College of Art, Hjorth is bringing back the bright neons from the 80′s that are so big right now and combining them with a more modern cut. This designer is certainly doing her part to make sure that pointy toes and the highest of heels are fun to wear again (even if they do look like they’d make walking down the street and acrobatic feat). Check out her entire collection HERE.

pf flyers fall 2009 sneakers 01 PF Flyers Perfect for a Trip Down Memory Lane

LA Gear sneakers were in fashion the last time I was into high-tops and I was in high school the last I recall someone sporting a pair of British Walkers; perhaps that’s why I feel so nostalgic looking at the latest collection from PF Flyers. There’s something about the designs in their fall line that reminds of those brands and earlier times in my life. My fashion sense has evolved considerably since the 90s, but I wouldn’t be opposed to throwing on a pair of these and going a little retro for a theme party.

Suede simply is not a wearable fabric. Rick Owens has his own way around that.

By f’ing your boots up in advance Mr.Owens saves you the worry over spilled drinks, scuff marks, overly strong gusts of wind and all the other ways in which suede can be injured or ruined.
