American Vogue - September 2014: A$AP & CHVNEL

As soon as I read online that bae was going to be in the September issue with Chanel I knew I had to track down a copy of Vogue for safekeeping. I do that with particular issues; I'm not a regular magazine buyer, but when these special moments come round I endeavor to do so. I did it with the issue of Sarah-Jessica Parker and Chris Noth when they did they did a spread back in 2008, I did it when Justin Bieber covered the ten year anniversary for Complex Magazine and I did it again for Rocky and Chanel.

Turns out not all newsagents in Amsterdam or the surrounding area stocks the September issue, with its 856 pages full of adverts and editorials. It took me a good two weeks to track it down and I got it from the American Book Centre in Spui. Not sure why I didn't check there earlier.

It's a truly wonderful shoot.

She's beautiful and well, he's a pretty motherf'cker.

Laces Out! Sneaker Festival at Camp & Furnace

I was recently told about Laces Out! which is a Sneaker Festival being held at the Camp & Furnace in Liverpool on the 4th of October. 

Rather than just posting a picture of the pretty sweet flyer, I thought I'd take the liberty to ask the organizers a couple of questions... 

Why did you decide to organise Laces Out!

We made ‘Laces Out!’ to give enthusiasts like ourselves a place to meet up, and buy, sell or trade in a cool environment. Liverpool’s obsession with trainees dates back to the 80’s and we though it was about time the city had a festival to celebrate the culture.

What shoe do you think is synonymous to Liverpool? 

It probably depends on what era we’re talking about, but for me it would have to be the Adidas Gazzelle.

What have been your Top 5 releases from the past year? 

Ubiq x Asics Gel Lyte V “Midnight Bloom”
Jcrew x New Balance 998 “Concrete Jungle”
Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte V “Cove”
Adidas ZX FLUX 8000 Weave OG “Aqua”
Packer x Adidas EQT Running support 93 “Micropacer”

What was your footwear rotation over summer?

Adidas Stan Smith, Nike Flyknit Racer, Nike Flyknit Lunar, Nike Free Inneva Woven NRG.

Where do you like buying shoes from; online/offline, independents/partners, ebay?

I buy from all different platforms. I love independent retailers like Ran Shop, and the old Transalpino in Liverpool, you get a nice variety of styles and brands that you wont find in the big chains. 

I do like to get a good mix of new and old releases, and the internet is great for that. Ebay is has served me well over the years, and now social media is becoming a great tool for people who are into their trabs. I follow hundreds of different Twitter and Instagram accounts dedicated to selling trainers, and you can find some gems that way.

What do you think of customisation services that brands offer, like NIKEiD/miadidas?

I think the concept is good, I always wanted to design my own trainers and this gives people a chance to have a go. I also like the idea of wearing a 1of 1 pair of trainers, and customizing makes that possible. That said, I wouldn’t like to see the brands offering out too many styles to customize, I think the classics should be left alone. I’m also not a fan of people being able to print any image they want on their shoe, there’s no creativity there. Like with the MI ZX FLUX, its only a matter of time before people are walking around with pictures of their kids on their trabs and that’s not cool. 

What are you expecting to see a lot of on the day? 

A lot of adidas.

What shoe would you love to see on display? 

I’d love to see the Patta x Parra Nike Air Max 1 “Cherrywood Red” on display, it’s probably my favourite shoe that I don’t own.

Alexander Wang Spring Summer '15

Every year, when it comes to September, if you're a Fashion Blogger, you really have no excuse; you have an abundance of articles to write about.

When you're a Fashion Blogger like me, who procrastinates and tumbls more than she Blogs, the pressure's on to push out at least one post for the month.

I think it's a bit cliche me piping up to talk about Alexander Wang, but in all honesty, it's more cliche me talking about a sneaker-inspired collection from New York Fashion Week.

It's like the easy way out, but I couldn't not talk about this collection.

I must admit I was a little bit surprised to see such obvious replications; iconic Red and Blue and moreover actually using Cement print from Jordan to the mix of mesh and Fairway green, presumably inspired by Senor Smith at adi.

My highlight is probably the Woven material seen on various Nike Sportswear silhouettes being featured on heels half way down the post. That or the Jordan 6 (I would guess) clutch bags.

Do I like this collection?


Would I wear the jumpers with my Jordans?
