YSL: Jungle Fever Footwear

2 Jun

It seems no fashion house is complete without a cool casual footwear collection and YSL is no different. This season French luxury fashion label Yves Saint Laurent has launched a capsule collection of fierce footwear. Trainers are no longer seen as the footwear for sports or urban street styling.

YSL offers a bold jungle inspired range from snake skin imitation high tops to cheetah fur textured slip ons these pieces will allow you to add a bit of casual chic to almost any outfit whether you want to dress down a suit or dress up your basic Nike trackies. In keeping with one of the biggest SS12 trends ‘Tropical’ and taking it in a masculine direction I predict these will be a hit.

Adidas Originals x Jeremy Scott S12

4 Jan

The Jeremy Scott x Adidas collaborations never fail to deliver on the eccentric side of sports fashion and Spring/Summer 2012 is nothing less than bold. From Jeremy Scotts SS12 runway collection it was apparent there would be something exciting in the pipeline for the Adidas collabo.

Taking inspiration from his SS12 runway collection and the classic Adidas Originals vibe you’ll find denim, bold prints, and the signature stuffed animal, winged footwear and oversized tongues to get a tongue or two wagging. As with his runway collection there are a few questionable pieces such as the male belly top and tape measure tracksuit but it fun, as fashion should be!
