Nike Sportswears new Air Maxim 1 has been one of the most anticipated releases of the year and it doesn't disappoint. Responsible with updating the classic 87 Air Max 1, Nike's design team took the original design brief and ran it through a present day filter. The Maxim is the latest development in the footwear brand's hybrid performance models. What separates this shoe from the original Air Max 1 is the integration of lightweight, supportive Flywire technology, making it lighter than ever before.

Ryan McGinley, American photographer known for cinematic images of stripped (literally) gorgeous young things, teamed with none other than denim brand Wrangler for an ad campaign this Spring. A daring and bold move on the part of Wrangler, whose jeans have always been more synonomous with cowboys than free spirited artists. But then again, who is buying anything a cowboy peddles these days?
The result is eerie and lovely- certainly more of a work of art than an incentive to jump over to Urban Outfitters and pick up a pair for myself. Sexy, of course, in a McGinley kind of a way, and while the title quite literally evokes it's mood "We Are Animals" I was reminded immediately of the film "Fire in the Sky" and naturally took the whole thing in with a touch of unease. Alien abduction makes for a rather uncompelling sell of an american classic.
But it's likely Wrangler got it's return on the innovative project, a refreshing change from the world of celebrity endorsements and staid "sexy-cool girl in little tank and beat up denim" formula most companies are comfortably employing. What do you think of the images wunders? Do you like?

Further to Olivia's awesome tribute post, I am absolutely astonished at this week's mind-shattering deaths. Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, and Michael Jackson epitomize my childhood memories. Such legends will never be forgotten.
In an ode to MJ the great, I figured it's a great time to discuss one of his many fashion legacies: military-inspired jackets. We've seen them hit it big again via Balmain's Christophe Decarnin. The structured look with the mondo shoulder pads and embellished military-style details was all the rage this past Spring. I'm certain the fashion world made Michael proud!
Now, unless you're one of the lucky few who can actually afford the Balmain real mccoy (pictured), then let's figure out a more wallet-friendly workaround. If it's any consolation, the jacket is sold out anyway.
Style yours just like the lil ol' model in the picture--some slim weathered jeans, bad-ass embellished sandals, and a lightweight tee or cami. You'll certainly be channeling our "Man in the Mirror" with this look!
If you are in or around New York City this weekend, stop by The Pop Up Flea for all sorts of cool menswear goodness from Billykirk, Mark McNairy, Hattan, Alexander West, One Trip Pass, Alexander Olch, Aether, Aprix, 3Sixteen, Gitman Brothers Vintage, CH'CM and a few surprises. Food will be on offer from the fine folks at Cafe Select. You can also get a wet shave and an old school cut from Tommy Guns.

To not write about the tragic loss of 2 icons on a day like today feels unthinkable- though admittedly I have no idea where you actually begin in mentioning something so sad as the loss of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett.
If decades could be summarized by cultural icons, it's undeniable that both would be considered completely representative of periods in our history- not to mention their continuing legacies. Finger-less gloves, marching band details on tight fitting jackets, androgynous beauty, Michael Jackson may have created a fiercely impactful statement with music but his style was ruthlessly indicative of an entire fashion movement.
Likewise, Farrah Fawcett represented a less androgynous aesthetic but never the less, equally influential. Maybe it was an attitude rather than an item. She embodied "American Icon" with blonde feathered locks, red one piece bathing suits and high waisted jeans. Cultural icons are enigmatic, much larger than their actual lives, which makes it feel oddly contrived to say anything at all about death. Ultimately they will continue to inspire and influence, despite their absences. Sad day.

It comes as no surprise that the beauty and fashion worlds have a lot of overlap. We see it in magazines, on television shows, and on the runway. In my opinion, statement hairstyles become an accessory of sorts. They complete or accentuate the outfit that is being showcased.
How many times do we ask our friends how we should wear our hair? When the hot, sticky days of summer come upon us (if EVER), then we will be searching for a multi-faceted, go-to hairstyle that can withstand the humidity but yields more style than a boring basic ponytail.
And history tells us that a few hairstyles have taken precedence over the past few seasons. We've seen many versions of braids--mini-side halo braids, pinned bang braids, side braids. We've seen variations of twisted hair--a side-pinned twist, two side-pinned twists, side-pinned twists with a messy bun. And we've seen the hippie-headband style (oftimes rocked the wrong way). Now we're seeing high buns in different forms as well--side-parted side knots, messy topknots with loose tendrils, slicked back high buns.
What's great about all of these hairstyles is that they are quite versatile. Sunbathing at the park? Throw your bedhead hair into a loose topknot and get moving! Going to brunch with your boyfriend's out-of-towner parents? Loose hair with side-pinned twists will do the trick. Booze cruise? Halo braids will keep your hair from getting into a matted, wind-stricken mess. Cookout? Nice time to try out a hippie headband. Fancy dinner? Order up a slicked back high bun.
Are there other summer hairstyles of choice that fit your fancy?
We can consider this topic a hybrid of beauty and fashion.. Beaushion? Fashuty? I'm not well-versed with name merges...
Hey Gals-We are gonna have another party at the store featuring one of our favorite jewelry designers Erica Weiner at amazing prices. We'll be serving up drinks, fun, and deals! Hope to see you there.
