Daft Punk x Hedi Slimane

with one comment

I know these action figures have been out since like 2005, when Hedi Slimane was still with the house of Dior, but I wanted to bring attention to the “liveness” of this collabo. It’s an interesting, but not surprising, combination of Japanese toy company x international, star fashion designer x acclaimed electronic music duo. The fact that Mr. Slimane dressed these Daft Punk figures is second only to the attention paid to detail. For some reason I don’t really think the $230 price tag is that bad…I guess my OCD gives me a profound appreciation for artful detail.

Get Familiar: “Formal” Sneakers [Spring ‘O-nine]

with one comment

UTØ is back with the second installment of the “formal” kicks segment. It’s still cold but it is gonna start warming up eventually and that means time to put up the outerwear…and bring out the lighter colors. And nothing says Spring like a pair of white sneakers. But I’m not just talking about any pair of white sneaks. I’m talking about ones that can make the difference between you looking like your ready for a fashion-forward Spring and you looking like Markell Shoe Company has your email address. The “formal crossovers” for the Spring season are from Dior Homme and Yves Saint Laurent. They go well with a dark pair of slacks and a lighter, collared top. Not to mention the subtle black embellishments on the Diors that will guarantee these bad boys (go see NOTORIOUS, out now!…kidding) a double-take from other urban graduates.
