adidas Originals NMD

Two nights ago I went to the  adidas Originals launch for its latest model, NMD, at the Lexington Armory in New York City. NMD references progressive adidas styles like the Micro Pacer, the Rising Star, and the Boston Super, with updated fabrications like BOOST and Primeknit designed for a nomadic lifestyle without boundaries. adidas is leading the future of footwear and we should all get on the bandwagon. I for one, love adidas and wear it religiously and you should too.

The adidas Originals NMD visualized the concept of a fearless contemporary nomad via huge experimental film screens of bustling international capital cities. As models wearing the brand new silhouette trekked through the majestic projection, attendees immersed themselves in product installations of the archival adidas models that inspired the futuristic new shoe.

The launch NMD is available globally for $170 USD, ? 130 GBP, €170 EUR a stores, select retailers and via adidas.com/NMD from December 12th. The reflective Consortium NMD is available from select Consortium retailers worldwide from December 10th for $180 USD, ?130 GBP, €180 EUR.

H&M The Denim Re-Born Collection

This September, H&M is launching a new collection made by recycled cotton from textiles collected in H&M’s Garment Collecting Initiative. The brand intends to create a closed loop for fashion, meaning fabrics from unwanted clothes can be recycled and made into new ones. The aim of the new collection is to reduce the environmental impact of the fashion industry by limiting waste that goes to landfills and saving on natural resources used in the production of fabric.

“Creating a closed loop for textiles, in which unwanted clothes can be recycled into new ones, will not only minimize textile waste, but also significantly reduce the need for virgin resources as well as other impacts fashion has on our planet,“ says Karl-Johan Persson, CEO of H&M.

The sixteen-piece collection will consist of styles for both men and women. Women’s offerings include skinny, distressed, and ‘girlfriend’ style jeans, adenim jacket, flared dungarees, and a denim jumpsuit. For men, offerings include a zip-up denim jacket, two distressed slim leg styles, and a pair of joggers in coated denim.

Shop the H&M Denim Re-Born collection when it launches this September in all H&M stores worldwide, as well as online at hm.com.

Coach X Peanuts Summer 2015 Collection

I’m so excited for this second rendition of Coach and Peanuts! The latest Coach X Peanuts collection is part of a series of limited edition projects celebrating the New York luxury brand’s heritage and lightness of spirit. Creative Director Stuart Vevers uses Schulz’s iconic drawings of Snoopy and the gang to create an even edgier, more urban iteration of these childhood favorites.

The summer collection features Snoopy and his best pal Woodstock on satchels, totes, duffles, backpacks and more. Embossed and printed on Coach’s Retro Glove Tan cowhide, the collection is available in the original color palette of white, black, “Woodstock yellow,” and heritage Saddle—plus a playful new blue. Graphic, black-and-white versions of Coach’s Campus Backpack and Pack complement the streetwise vibe of the designs and call to mind Schulz’s original pen-and-ink drawings.

Each bag in this exclusive, limited edition collection will come with a signature Coach Storypatch. Coordinating accessories and novelty items include folios, wallets, hangtags, key fobs, turnlock bracelets, buttons, and luxe leather Snoopy dolls.

Coach X Peanuts launches online at Coach.com starting today. Users in select countries will also be able to shop the collection directly on the Coach App. LOVE IT!
