Ibn Jasper x Diamond Supply Co. 2012 Fall/Winter “Miami” Capsule Collection for UNKNWN


On the heels of a successful launch of the premier collection in October, Diamond Supply Co. presents its newest addition to its ongoing collaboration with Ibn Jasper – a special Miami capsule for LeBron James‘s UNKNWN store – as well as the surrounding festivities for Art Basel. The Jasper Shoe is a sleek moccasin-inspired sneaker with a focus on luxury, recreated in premium white snake suede and highlighted by diamond blue accents on the sole and tongue and Miami orange on the inside. Complimenting the footwear are two pieces of apparel – a pocket T-shirt and a longsleeve T-shirt with sophisticated “DMND” branding and graphic hits reminiscent of the shoe’s new colorway. While the original Jasper collection was limited to 100 pairs, the new Miami-inspired colorway will be even more exclusive and limited to just 75 pairs – with 50 pairs available online on December 8 at noon PST and the remaining 25 pairs available in-store only at UNKNWN Miami on the same day at 2 p.m. EST.


Diet Coke by Jean Paul Gaultier

I has appeared that Jean Paul Gaultier is the new creative director of Diet Coke. The drink company has some pretty dope designs of the bottle featuring Gaultier’s signature flair. The advertisements photographed by Stephane Sednaoui The bottles featured is one with the Breton Nautical stripes while the other one is dressed with a risque corset. Too bad we Americans are unable to cop these bottles because are only available in 9 different countries.

I would not have seen this collaboration coming. It is a known fact soft drinks contains a mass amount of caffeine, which makes you grow a belly. In an image conscious industry as fashion, you would think designers wouldn’t bother considering to do so. I guess Marc Jacobs will be doing a commercial for Denny’s right or Kanye West with Popeye’s lol. I am sorry, but this took me on a loop. On the other hand, I can not complain about the


Karl Lagerfeld for Impulse (Macys)

Honestly I was shocked from receiving the news Karl Lagerfeld has made another high street fashion collaboration. First he had a successful run-in with H&M several years back. Now, he has recently launched a collection for Macy’s brand, Impulse.

Compared to the high fashion prices of Chanel and Fendi, ladies these garments are a fraction of the price which should not hurt the pocket too bad (cash or charge). The design and structure did not sacrifice from it’s price. Ranging from the typical price range from $50 – $200 is not bad at all!

The collection also would not be complete without the signature Lagerfeld collar (jealous!!) along with the classical tweed and the black/white color palette with the exception of a few vibrant hues. For those who are not able to visit fashion night out, visit macys for this collection. Truly amazing!
