Prada Spring 2014 Campaign


Prada-Spring-2014-Film-600x337

This season’s Prada video shows off the Steven Meisel-shot stars of the Spring-Summer 2014 campaign as slickly dressed fashion spectators. The stylish cast of up-and-coming models act out a series of imaginary events, from sports to movies, to concerts. It starts with a game of imaginary tennis, complete with candy pink balls and homemade sound effects, before moving to a movie theater with 3D glasses and colored popcorn.

The Mayfourteeth Look Book.


Introducing the Spring/Summer 2012 Mayfourteenth Eyewear collection. The 2012 frames were inspired by the tranquility of island life and wanderlust, and draw from elements resemblant to the striking patterns and colors of the beaches and jungles of coastal South America.


The new campaign was photographed by Dustin Aksland at his Manhattan studio and inspired by Ishla Grande and the coastal bungalows of Angra Dos Reis, Brazil.

The new collection uses a contrasting color palette of chocolate browns and carmel yellows inspired by the delicious torte and dulce de leche from the Villa do Abrao desert carts, mixed with moody blues and crystals reminiscent of the sun beaming off of the islands clear waters. Subtle tortoise and jaguar markings continue the theme of deviated patterns from nature.

Continuing with the theme of contemporary classic, Mayfourteenth’s delivery focuses both on texture and form. Thicker, bigger, and bolder frames all wearable from summer through autumn.  Mayfourteenth Eyewear is handmade using vintage Mazzucchelli acetate and fitted with optical quality CR-39 lens.  Made with careful hands and designed with sophisticated style.

B.ez.


B.ez the brand is an ambiguous experimentation found at the intersection of three different, but like-minded individuals. It encompasses an attempt to use the creative mind as the vessel for freedom of expression on the quest to chase one’s dreams and ambitions.  B.ez is not your father’s t-shirt brand nor is it shaking up the clothing industry. B.ez is not claiming to be a revolutionary brand that will change your life nor is it some unexplainable movement. B.ez is simply making moves. It’s not for everyone; find out if it’s for you.

The b. is the ‘action’. It means stop talking about doing the things you want to do and just do them. Be true to yourself and just b. you.  The ez is the ‘how’. The mood at which to handle your goals.  It’s important to always be humble in your quest for success, as this will keep you in the right circles in the future.  The octopus is the symbol of our brand; it represents creativity, wisdom, and a sense of mystery. We feel it suits our endeavors favorably and we are enjoying manipulating its appearance for the sake of intrigue.

Getting Your ‘Daily Dose’.


The images above and below come from a marvelous fashion blog titled “Daily Dose”, but let me take a second to explain myself before I get a new gang of emails.  It’s a well known fact that I’m not a fashion expert, (last week I met with the former president of CBS, Sir Howard Stringer, and was wearing sweat pants and a ‘where the white girls are‘ T-shirt.)  However, this doesn’t impede my ability to spot an incredible fashion source when I see one.  Francesca Grosso, the site’s primary writer has an incredible eye for style, and 100% of her posts are equally eye catching to fashionistas or guys like me who run around business meetings in sweat pants.  Click any of the pictures to see more from ‘Daily Dose’.

Kate Moss Is The New Mango Spring 2012 Campaign Model.


Kate Moss has been revealed as the face of Mango’s Spring 2012 campaign, appearing in print and television campaigns captured by Terry Richardson.  While the Barcelona-based retailer had opted for actresses including Scarlett Johansson and Penélope Cruz to front collections in recent years, Moss’s appointment marks a move further into the realm of high fashion for the brand.  Kate Moss attended a photocall January 24 at Mango’s London flagship store in Oxford Street ahead of the collection launch.

A television commercial starring Moss called ‘Spy Game’ will also go live across 40 countries including the UK, France and Germany early March.  The fashionista’s previous high street collaborations include modeling and designing her own fashion lines for British retailer Topshop.  “Kate Moss was chosen as the image of Mango because she is a world-famous fashion icon, making her one of the most sought-after models in the fashion world.”

The Nike 6.0 2012 Spring Collection.


FINALLY I’m on time with the game when it comes to the release of a shoe collection.  All too often on this blog I’ll find some dope shoes, and either someone on my staff or one of my close friends will gently pull me aside and say “Storm… those are old as HELL.  Everyone has already seen those.”  So when I caught a glimpse of Nike 6.0’s upcoming Spring 2012 footwear collection I danced a little.  Evolving many of its signature pro models via updated colorways and redesigned construction and some new iterations of the Paul Rodriguez V, Mogan Mid 2 SE and the Encore 2, the models incorporate the use of the new Nike Lunarlon cushioning system with an installment of silhouettes including the Braata LR and Zoom LeShot LR. Overall the arrangement maintains a minimally chromatic palette, avoiding overused patterns or textures, but I still find the entire collection quite dope.

The Armani Exchange Spring 2011 Collection.


For a few different reasons, I’ve been on my fashion game a bit harder than previous years, and one new ad campaign in particular really caught my eye.  Here’s the Armani Exchange S/S 2011 ad campaign with Simon Nessman, Alejandra Alonso, Marlon Teixeira, Francisco Lachowski and Clara Alonso.  The “Style Festival” campaign was photographed for 3 days at Empire Polo Fields, in Indio, California by Matthew Scrivens and styled by Kate Lanphear.

Louis Vuitton for Babies?


Louis Vuitton and Yana Peel hosted an “Art for Baby” opening reception on 18th January 2011 at Espace Louis Vuitton Hong Kong.  The “Art for Baby” exhibition brought together in celebration of the Asia launch of the highly-acclaimed book by the same name.  It showcases the 20th century’s most prolific painters from America, Europe and Asia, with works by Damien Hirst, Gary Hume, Julian Ope and Takashi Murakami.  Chosen from among works by Kasmir Malevich, Paul Morrison, Bridget Riley and David Shrigley, each of whom is also featured in the Art for Baby book.  The book Art for Baby was conceived by Yana Peel on the basis of scientific evidence that when babies are first born, they can see colour but have not yet developed the ability to distinguish similar tones.  As a result, bold graphics along with monochromatic black and white contrasts provide them with the tools to nurture their visual skills, while at the same time introduce them to the world of art.  The Art for Baby exhibition opens on 19 January and continues until April 2011, with all book sales going to Outset Contemporary Art Fund.
