Paris Fashion Week: Alexander Mcqueen... you are a KING!

Alexander McQueen does not even compare to the other collections this season. It is forward-thinking, futuristic, primal and beautiful, far from a lot of the safe that recession-driven stuff that has been shown. He is more than on top his game.

Nevertheless, Alexander introduced us to Plato’s Atlantis. The delicate prints, the structures and angles of the clothing, the details – the collection seemed to mirror Plato’s description of the lost city of Atlantis. The pieces were futuristic yet primeval, reptilian yet alien-like and left me wanting more.
There is no doubt the whole collection is stunning but my two favourite pieces are the shoes and clutch below. The shoes are simply breathtaking, managing to be hard yet soft and those colours are perfect. The bag is sensational and probably the most wearable accessory from the collection.

Plato said, “a hero is born among a hundred, a wise man is found among a thousand, but an accomplished one might not be found even among a hundred thousand men.” Plato was talking about Alexander McQueen.

Reebok 80's are back !

This time Reebok flashes us back to the 80’s with 2 colorways of a Mettalic Freestyle. The original aerobic shoe comes in pink and purple and features shiny metallic panels paired against patent leather overlays. With dual ankle straps and a partial white midsole the signature sneaker is spruced up just enough to make any Freestyle fan happy.
