I remember back in 2000 when the whole “premium denim” craze began. It was suchÂ a different era because the moment Seven for All Mankind (7’s) launched in 2000, everyone thought it was completely normal and ok to spend $130 for a pair of jeans. Yeah, I know they were considered premium, but before then, spending over $100 onÂ pair of jeans was simply unheard of.
After I got my first pair of 7’s, I felt somewhat accomplished. I ordered my first pair of standard wash from Nordstrom in the spring of 2000 and that was the beginning of my “premium denim” obsession. I remember seeing them for the first time inÂ Lucky Â magazine. I was in love. lol
After the Seven’s, I started purchasing every new designer pair of jeans that came out.Â Deisel, Joe’sÂ Citizens of Humanity, True Religion, Earnest Sewn, DL1961, Page Denim, JBrand, etc. etc, etc.

TheÂ MCM Reversible Logo Belt is such a nice belt to have. Even if you aren’t necessarily interested in being labeled from head to toe, you can always reverse it and wear it on the black side. Easy solution. But if it’s important to you that people understand you paid 200 bucks for your belt and know who designed it, well the well marketed logo side is your right side for that occasion. Sometimes we need both. A little flash with a cup or two of passive,
For years MCM has been a staple in the Hip Hop community. EveryoneÂ in the Hip Hop industry was familiar with that Classic congÂ brown logo. they’re remained pretty consistent throughout the years. You know what to expect from MCM. Whether it’s through backpacks, shoes, belts or clothing. MCMÂ has been around HipÂ Hop for years. I remember some of the rappers back in the early 90’s rocking MCM. But it always comes back. Some may say it never left……Hip Hop Super producer Swizz Beatz is alsoÂ known for his love for the brand. I hear he has quite a remarkable collection. He showed his love for the brand here on his InstagramÂ Continue Reading →

I’ve seen this fabulousÂ “invisible shoe” periodically over the past few months and said I was needed to share it with you guys….and forgot. I recently ran across this ridiculously #fabandfly shoe again and I HAD to write about it.Â The concept is pretty fly for those of you that are into art. Because every bit of this shoe is a masterpiece.

The brilliant designer’s work captured the attention of international media even before her graduation from PolimodaÂ Fashion Institute in Florence, Italy in 2010. Her critically acclaimed first series ‘InvisibleShoe’, launched in February 2011, has been featured in leading fashion publications and international exhibitions, and is collected by some of the greatest patrons of contemporary fashion.
Andreia Chaves is best known for her innovative and distinctive visual approach, fusing craftsmanship, experimental materials and cutting edge technology to realize her footwear designs.
Now working between Europe and Brazil, Chaves is also an international design consultant.
I think her creations are amazing! To find out more about the invisible shoe and Andreia Chaves, you can visit her siteÂ and take a look at herÂ work here Â http://www.andreiachaves.com
