Greek 2 Chic: Picks of the Week (Back|2|School)

with one comment

Since EVERYBODY wants to be Chris Paul this fall….Let’s GET IT!! Top picks across the board for Greeks goin back-to-school:

NIKE Dunk Hi — “Octadunk” Pack. I saw these in person….very Dope! Shout out to Bodega in Boston. Yo, these joints commemorate the beginning of the Beijing Olympics (08-08-08). The detail work is nice, the shoe is completely seamless, and really it’s like looking at a bunch of pixels. LIVE!

Colette + Hello Kitty collaborated to make the Silly Thing Watch. Okay…..It’s blue….It has a CAT on it….AND it’s considered “high-fashion”. No-Brainer!!! Snatch that up, ladiez in blue.

So after really looking around the web, I found something that was dark enough to be Hunter Green. Adidas + GoodFoot (Canadian fashion, get ya brand game up) collaborate on this 5-Panel cap. The dopest part about it all is that it comes with a carrying bag and eco-friendly literature. The Cap and Bag are made out of green materials. How bout that?!

Creative Recreation, again. The Miranda Shoe, definitely an appropriately named joint. Haters have the RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT when you slip these on. Think of them as a creative take on a ballet flat, but waaaaay more comfortable. (Sidebar: Creative Rec is in Barneys now! These dudes done blown UP!! Got they shoes bein made in ITALY).

The Louboutin T-Shirt by Free Gold Watch. This is pretty clever. Put one of the most-coveted heels on a t-shirt, trick it out in red, then add a Fresh ass zipper to the neck for originality?! On point like a Ballerina! Snatch that up, real talk.

Greek 2 Chic: Femme Fly

leave a comment »

It’s JULY, and there are a bunch of frogs out there who are celebrating their birthday this month (well…technically, it’s a belated birthday extravaganza). UTO figured we’d toss a few looks at you for good measure. Wings anyone??:

The Skerry Rainboot by Tretorn. Ok….somebody needs to sound the alarms cuz these joints are CRAAAAZY. Rainboots are thought to be an accessory that people with high fashion IQs invest in. But the folks at Tretorn just decided to go bonkers on the concept and presented these. Pay attention to the insulation (faux fur, good for rain and snow activity), then….appreciate the mid-calf height. Last but not least….the color combinations. Wifey, if your reading…..grab those and meet me in Boston.

The Ghetto Blaster Tote Bag by Loop Design. MAAAAAAAAAAAN! This is the official ATTENTION GRABBER of the summer. 1) It’s a tote bag, which is pretty much necessary for beach/picnic chillin. Spacious, hell a lil dog can even fit inside. 2) The color selection is impeccable. If you got this thrown over your shoulder, all you need is a basic white top, some nice shorts, and some color basic sneaks i.e. chucks, vans, maybe creative recs. 3) THE DAMN THING HAS SPEAKERS!!!! Look close at the middle picture. It’s got an iPod jack on the inside, so you really can get it poppin once the jaws stop droppin, ya dig?!

The Pencil Case II by Tokidoki + Hello Kitty. Collaborations are always dope. Two of the most popular designers collided on this joint and created a subtle masterpiece. Now, most people forgot about these things we call “pencil cases”, but they actually are a good idea. I mean, not many people can say that their swag EXTENDS into the classroom.  Summer school is in session….get ya gear and ya grades up.
