Kick the Hype

vogueGivenchy designer Riccardo Tiscwent on instagram straight flexing with his sneaker collaboration with Nike for Vogue Magazine (styled by Grace Coddington). Pictured with supermodel,Joan Smalls draped across his shoulders was a kodak moment. Granted the photo of the Vogue‘s editorial wasn’t clear as expected. Needless to say, it was enough for the hypebeasts to start saying their tax money for the highly anticipated sneaker.The Air Force 1 Hi Boots would be retailing for $225 at select Nike stores. It appears Nike is not ready to play nice with the folks after Kanye dunked on them during his recent interviews. I find it hard to believe the two (Yeezy and Tisci) don’t discuss the athletic company of their sudden decision. At the end of the day, they are not going to break a friendship regards to a cooperation. It wouldn’t surprise me if the sneaker is launched around the same time as Kanye’s sneaker with Adidas. Only time will time.

Daft Punk and Supermodel Karlie Kloss for Vogue

Daft Punk has been treated quite well so far in 2013! First, they had a rock’d out feature with Saint Laurent Paris campaign, launched a hit album and produced 4 tracks for the “hate it or absolutely love it” album, Yeezus. Now, the french electronic duo paired with supermodel Karlie Kloss in a chic for the upcoming August 2013 Vogue Issue. Through the lens of Craig McDean,, the trio explored through the city and music studio with captivated techno edgy chic ensembles of Lanvin, Givenchy, Vera Wang and Alexander McQueen while they are harmonized with subtle minimal suits. Out of the entire shoot, I love how Vogue manages to create ensemble style friendly for each age group.

I must admit these robots guys know how to rock some nice suits! who would ever thought that was case because I am sold!! One thing about Daft Punk is they are truly honest about their material.. No fucks are given when its comes to artistic control from label heads and critics alike. Overall, this is a pretty dope spread and can’t wait what else they may “get lucky” with in 2013!

Joan Smalls – My Everything

I strongly believe every man always had that model they would love to date.. Well, mine is Joan Smalls! This has to be a monumental moment for the supermodel as she is covered in her first Vogue cover (May Issue of Australian Vogue)! Glamorous and the effortless sex appeal is the beauty of her. This cover shot is one of the best I have seen for the magazine in a while. I am so sure to seeing artists or celebrities gracing the cover. Besides your Naomi Campbell’s, Kate Moss, who achieved the status for special bookings (thanks for educating me Jeremy Dante) , It’s great to see her stepping towards those foot steps. After seeing the her shot on the lust list for GQ, I was locked on to her seductive looks and god given beauty. She is everything!


Kanye and Riccardo Tisci – Vogue

Throughout the years, it has been completely evident Kanye West’s extreme interest in fashion. Branding himself as a style icon, tastemaker, and visionary was not an easy task for a hip hop artist to break barriers into the industry on a high level. Fortunately, Yeezy is featured in VOGUE for the first time in the March 2012 article “Tisci’s Time.”

Kanye appears along Givenchy designer Ricardo Tisci and his other famous muses, including Liya Kibede, Liv Tyler, Karolina Kurkova and Florence Welch. It has been widely known about their chemistry work from being seen at all his shows, designs,of the Givenchy brand and tapped Tisci to design the cover art for his last collaborative album, “Watch The Throne.”  So it would have been very appropriate to accommodate him alongside Tisci . Although, I have been curious what happened towards his friendship with Marc Jacobs, but that is just me.

The September Issue – Karlie Vloss – Vogue

Presenting some of the editorial images of the latest September Issue of American Vogue. Fashion model, Karlie Vloss of next models is featured in the spread which shows influence in the Far East. The images ranges from the countryside, visiting national landmarks to partying with shaolin monks; Sounds like my kind of party! Wonder who convinced them to leave the temple and let it loose..

Alright I kid, but the lens of Mario  Testino and styling by Tonne Goodman is truly remarkable! I have have always been fascinated with Asian inspired themes. Can’t wait till I have my moment to shine.
