Kanye to Intern?

25 Nov

It seems Kanye wants to intern according to The Cut. We are all aware that Yeezy wants to infiltrate the designer fashion ends, but who is willing to take him on?

Italo Zucchelli, Calvin Klein Collection for men:
“Kanye’s got a fantastic sense of style and surely doesn’t need to do an apprenticeship with a fashion brand. He is an important style icon for a new generation, and having wardrobed him before, I know that he truly has a great eye for what works for him.”

David Neville and Marcus Wainwright, Rag & Bone:
“The answer is yes. We would have Kanye as an intern.”

Zac Posen:
“Yes. He’s a hard worker.”

Yigal Azrouël:
“I wouldn’t hire Kanye because Kafi, my design director, would get NO work done.”
Kafi Wilson, design director, Yigal Azrouël:
“Kanye can do my sourcing anytime.”

Marc Jacobs:
“Yes, absolutely he’s great. Everyone in the office agrees — we’d love to have him.”

Do we think Kanye just wants to steal some ideas from the best??…. Thats it Kanye, get ya backpack on, sort out a pack lunch and get ready to run around on pointless errands.


Matthew Williamson for H&M

25 Nov

For those of you who refused to que like a twat outside one of many H&M’s across the UK, to get your hands on some pieces from the Comme des Garçons line, all is not lost! Next to bat for team H&M is Matthew Williamson.

“Known for mixing bright prints, Williamson’s women’s collection will hit a select 200 stores April 23. A second delivery will hit all 1,700 H&M stores in May and include women’s and menswear. The collaboration marks Williamson’s first foray into men’s clothes. The designer, who recently split from Emilio Pucci to focus on his own label, is opening his first U.S. flagship in the meatpacking district early next year. The announcement of the H&M line is a great way to drum up excitement for his U.S. expansion.”*The Cut (NY)

“It is an incredible opportunity to be working with H&M, creating a ‘Matthew Williamson for H&M’ capsule collection. I love the fact that H&M has created a new phenomenon in fashion through the pioneering concept of collaborating with high-end designers to create one-off limited edition capsule collections. I am thrilled that my creations for H&M will be accessible to and hopefully enjoyed by so many people around the world,”* Vogue

So keep those eyes and ears peeled ready for Spring next year!

Supra Skytop- Wheat

25 Nov

Sneaker Files News…..

“With news of Terry Kennedy’s pro model to an array of Skytops, Supra has been quite busy and has showed that they can compete with the major footwear brands. One of their upcoming styles of the Skytop is this Timberland inspired model that consists of a wheat upper, black accents and thin laces. This Skytop features a composition that stands out from the patent leather and animal print styles that have been seen in the past few weeks. You can find this Skytop at select accounts on November 28th, 2009.”

I think these are BOOM, would look real good on a slim/average build man with some good dark wash jeans, nice plain tee… di da di!

Nike Air Windrunner TR II B+W

25 Nov

Sneaker File News……

Originally released in 1986, the Nike Air Windrunner TR II is back with a very safe, yet clean colorway. Though mostly known as a running sneaker, this Nike model does not include the patented Nike Air Max technology seen on most of Nike’s elite running sneakers. The white toebox and side panel on this pair is nicely contrasted by the black heel, shoe lace region, and inner lining.

Another interesting aspect of this sneaker is the gray mesh that is used on the side panel to give added flexibility and comfort to the runner. The Nike Air Windrunner TR II was at the top of the sneaker game 22 years ago and if you want to relive those moments today, you can pick up a pair at Size?.*adidas sneaker files

Fu*k me pumps

25 Nov

You know, I always used to have little fantasies about trainers turned into heels, because every trainer loving girl secretly or openly has a thing for heels that be high! This is the first pair of actual trainers turned shoes I have seen that are OK.

“Collaborating with famed Italian brand Sergio Rossi and overseen by Linlee Allen, Puma get kinky with their interpretation of the staple Clyde. Giving ladies the option of a flat or a towering heel, Rossi and Puma tantalise the ladies with such names as Lolita Pink, Speedy Black and ‘Delovely’ Lavender (an obvious reference to our Delovely Delinlee!). Wrapped up in a sexy satin upper or risqué leather alternative, it’s all about your f**k me pumps this season!” *Sneaker Freaker

January 2009 from Colette is all the release information Sneaker Freaker can share at this point…..
