If your city has some cold weather everyday (even in summer), you need to protect yourself, and Zara proposes some garments with a vintage touch, which are very appropriate for your needs. Those garments can transform any look into a sophisticated and elegant tribute to the past. This nostalgic touch is also present in Zara jackets, including leather jackets with traditional zippers or with military-cut. In this collection, jackets are pretty short and tight, just like in the late 60s and the 1970s disco age.
As for pants, not doubt, this spring summer 2009 the big winners will be Chinese pants in matching colors: white, light gray tones and sand colors. Very narrow belts and shirts inside the pants are also features of this collection. In a few words, this collection suggests a trend of being a classic and traditional man.
Pic's from Tmz.com: Its reported that Coolio "Ex-Rap Star" was arreasted on possession of crack cocaine in the LAX airport yesterday evening. Sources close to the situation tell us Coolio was going through a security screening to get to his Southwest Airlines flight when a screener found crack cocaine on him. (WTF) why would you have crack on you? Crack is a hell of a drug (LOL). Well as of right now, Coolio is booked in LAX! I can't wait to hear his side of the story.
I'm starting to get into interior design and I’ve been absolutely smitten with the L’Artisan Parfumeur luxury brand, more specifically, their candles. The brand has been creating luxury candles, home fragranes, and eaux de toilettes since 1976, their luxury brands extending to production of Bottega Veneta candles. I truly have to say that I’ve never had such incredibly euphoric-smelling candles in my life, with rich tones and scents all packaged in a gorgeous display, L’Artisan Parfumeur are a worthy splurge and a half. In four years the brand has managed to grow from 5 boutiques to 30 in 2008, and 350 worldwide.
If you don't know about Beats By Dre, they are essentially a technological crown that not only adorns your head with an excellent contemporary design that pulls compliments left and right, but they also engage your ears into a universe of sound unrivaled by just about any other headphones on the market.
Finally, ColorWare, the brand that pretty much color coordinates all of your electronic essentials including iPhones, MacBooks, and Pioneer plasma TVs has finally gotten a contract to work with monster cables to pimp out their worship worthy Beats by Dre.
If you are the type of person that doesn't really care for the idea of having the same shit as everybody else, or just really really like the Beats and want to gain some swag points (like me), then today is your lucky day as you can officially customize just about every single piece of the beats except for the foam rests in the ear cups and on the arc of the headphones.
Think of it as NikeID for some seriously hardcore headphones. But considering the already steep price point of the regular Beats at $350, expect to pay plenty of dough for em. If you send in your Beats, you only have to pay $250 to get them customized. However, if you want to get them new, out of the box in all of their custom glory, be ready to cop them at $525. Check out the customizer here.
The passion of Donatella Versace for Christopher Kane did not weaken since that the young designer left the benches of the Holy Exchange Martin School of London in 2005. She in fact has just announced the go out of a mini collection of incidental realized one by Kane for the relancement of Versus, the younger line of Versace. The collection understands 9 models of shoes and of bags and some jewels. To the program: a scholar mixes opulence and of bling bling that one rediscovers through 3 thematic ones: Diamond, that proposes low-boots, gladiators and envelope endow with huge Swarovski crystals, Moschettone to the look of inspiration bondage and Labyrinth that mixes geometric design, velvet and leather.
Christian Louboutin used the very famous house of Jean -Francois Lesage in India to provide the embroidery and lace for the capsule collection he created, inspired by Marie Antoinette. The Collection of 36 collector item styles is of course already sold out…hurts!
The Kanye West x Louis Vuitton DON is remixed into a high top version in both black and off-white tonal colorways, which also feature Yeezy’s favorite, the velcro straps. A new colorway of the low top version, a tonal grey version also is part of the collection. A couple of more bold colorways, with some tassle-like shoelaces make there way into the collection, featuring light brown and dark brown accented with another Kanye fav, pink.
This collaboration between the french house and the american artist is really interesting and significant on the high-fashion market, and sneaker market. It means that sneaker culture and sneaker market (sportswear one) as we knew it are dead. The mass market is gonna totally absorb it. And it means also lots of thing about the fact that LOUIS VUITTON wants to extend his consumer targets. LOUIS VUITTON want to have this new consumer : older with some money, and a new fashion culture.
The sneakers should be released in store June 2009.
Will this mix of the sneaker game and high fashion change things for the better or the worse?
Pic's from theybf.com: Even with all the attention set on Chris Brown today. Michael Jackson still finds a way to get the attention of the world. Today in London, the King of Pop held a press conference to announce that he will be going on a world tour this coming July. No exact date has been set as of yet, but I will be sure to keep you all posted once more information is given.
Is it me or MJ is looking extra white in the skin??
The only thing I see wrong with advertising for the new season, Gucci is that male models appearing in the background. Thin belts with circular dimples created by Tachos and shirts with large collars. Not to mention the famous blue color that is reflected in the collections of the previous season. unlosable!
Pic's from theybf.com: Chris Brown was just formally charged with 2 felonies by The L.A. County District Attorney. One count of making a criminal threat and one count of felony assault both against Rihanna. "Those charges can lend up to 9 years in prison" Chris is already working on a major plea deal, I wouldn't want to see CB go down like this. But you have to pay the price that comes with your actions.
Yohji Yamamoto Inc. has teamed up with Linda Farrow to release 'Prototype," their debut line of sunglasses together. The styles are functional, unadorned and represent the hand tooled and unfinished character of a prototype- before the design goes into mass production.

Shown here are the black frame and green lens with a dull bronze and graduated pink frame attachment (which makes for a smoky grey lens when worn together).

Jay-Z is featured on the upcoming April cover of BEST LIFE magazine:
He says, I’m a mirror! If you’re cool with me, I’m cool with you, and the exchange starts. What you see is what you reflect. If you don’t like what you see, then you’ve done something. If I’m standoffish, that’s because you are. Jay-Z also talks about what was on his mind when he made Reasonable Doubt in 1996: I made that album to impress my friends, so they would say, Oh wow, look what you did! It was my first album on the label that we owned. I was like Okay, what happens now?
Jay-Z has accomplished so much as an Artist/Business Man! It seems as if this dude doesn't know how to stop. I look forward to seeing what he does this year!
Pic's from theybf.com: Spotted together court side at the Hawks Vs. Cavs game in Atlanta, GA, The Dream and what looks like to be his new Boo Christina Milian were enjoying a night of pure entertainment. On the flip side, WTF!!! Ms. Milian looked like a cheap hooker. I couldn't even believe my eyes once I noticed that was really her. What happen to the "Black Hair" Mama? This is a BIG No! No!, and I can't believe The Dream would allow such a thing. It looks like a bottle of bleach just fell on her head!! (LOL). Well you know the saying, "To each is OWN"
Listen up fashionistas, shit stains are out, coke stains are IN!!!!
Nah, but on a serious note, this could have been a booger or even a glare from the flashing light. But we all know Lindsay for taking a boring party to the next level with a little coke, so we're gonna go with that one!!!
Lo Bosworth is wearing a Target skirt that looked like it could have been from a designer. Gotta admit, for $27.99, this skirt looks nice, especially paired with a plain black tank and flats (of course, the outfit isn’t complete without the Chanel bag, but that you cannot pick up at Target).
The sculpted and highly polished Louis Vuitton Evidence Sunglasses is the reinvention of the classic Aviator sunglasses making it modern and much more masculine. It's black/white/gray acetate frame is accentuated with flashy gold/silver metal pieces embellished with the Monogram symbols. Retailing $675.00, these sunglasses represent class, fashion and style while accessorising individuality.
R&B artist The Dream is the first celebrity to be seen wearing these very exclusive sunglasse while doing promotional dates for his sophmore album Love vs. Money (03.03.09). I'm sure these would be a great addition for the all white parties lined up for this summer, but please order fast as this color is definitely going to be sold out quickly!
The Louis Vuitton Evidence line will still keep the classic Black/Gold accent colorway, and will also be introducing the Grey/Silver accent coloway as well for its customer fanbase.

Hot, but like the shutter shades, these won't be hot for long.. so if you have money to waste for 4 good months of hip trends, then go for it.. if not, wait until you can find a cheaper option from a street vendor...
