Finally a super creative idea from Nike to help promote the new children’s film ParaNorman as well as the popular Nike Foamposite sneaker. The idea was to dedicate a pair of the sneakers to the film by creating a limited edition color way for 800 lucky fans. There was a contest held which fans had to send a “weird” picture of themselves as a kid to the ParaNorman twitter account, an those chosen would be sent a pair of the sneakers free of charge.

Céline: Dope Cuban Link Eyewear

21 Aug

Céline is no stranger on AbathingX. This time for designing a set of really kool shades. The Cuban link shades come in two different styles. One has the cuban link in the form of sunglass arms and the other holds as a crown on top of the shades. The price is a little bit up there at $1,299, but i think a sunglass enthusiast would appreciate the craftsmanship of these pieces.

Its About Time: Kokon To Zai (KTZ)

21 Aug

Recently there was a commercial that aired starring Kevin Hart, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. The commercial was to advertise the MTV music awards, but everyone seems to be more interested in the shorts that Kanye was wearing. So naturally I had to do my research on the brand behind the excitement. Introducing Kokon To Zai, otherwise known as KTZ……

KTZ is a line from designer Sasko Besovski, who was actually trained to be an architect. The original KTZ space was a place for DJs and creative people to hangout. That turned into a cult followed clothing boutique, which followed by the second store in Paris. Now the pieces have gone from the small boutiques to the likes of Kanye West and his G.O.O.D music family. The new found publicity is much deserved. 

Fashion & Prints: Top Three Prints right now

20 Aug

This upcoming fall season brings out the best in prints for men and women alike…… 

PAISLEY:

So it seems like since the beginning of time the famous Paisley bandana print has been a hit. From the cowboys to modern day high fashion it has definitely stood the test of time.

CHEETAH:

Contrary to many peoples beliefs cheetah is king when it comes to prints these days. It is everywhere, from scarves to jackets. Even though mistaken for its close cousin the Leopard, Cheetah still reigns supreme . 

FLORAL:

Floral print is the underdog of the bunch. This might be because of its lack of popularity in the past . In the 90’s floral wasn’t a huge hit with males, but in the 21st century it seems to be pretty popular especially amongst the guys.
