Fashion News: DON C sits with GQ to discuss the JUST Don brand and inspiration

24 Aug

Designer Don C sits down with GQ’s style editor Will Welch to explain the inspiration and creation of his famous JustDon snakeskin baseball caps. Chicago native Don explains how the idea of the “buck fifty” cap originated in his home town. Originally worn by drug dealers in the late 70’s & 80’s, Don C tried to sell the idea to companies but no one would produce the idea. So in 2011 he decided to take it upon himself to recreate the classic hat that originally costed $150 ((hence the name “buck fifty”)). The hats are available at Kith NYC, Barneys, RSVP Gallery & JustDON.com

Fashion News: HEMINCUFF NY leather collection FW15

23 Aug


 

      Young up and coming fashion designers Noel Veloz & Vadim Chinderjinschi are the Hemincuff NYC, designers who are coming out of the gate with an amazing first collection of leather goods and accessories.    

     The design process at Hemincuff was born out of the need to reinvigorate classic products and bring them to life. Our design process draws ideas from our environment, by asking questions and observing what we can do to display a true reflection of our surrounding and interests. Our methods are simple. We get an idea and we pick up the sketch book and draw it. We pride ourselves in creating products that serve as both functional and fashionable. We aim to display progression with every new design and bring new concepts to life in order to separate ourselves from the standard. We strongly value freedom of expression through products that can be used as a display of personality and individualism.

      The leather pieces range from $220 – $550USD and will be available at the Hemincuff website.

$1 Million Dollar Mountain Bike

5 Jun

1millybike1millybike3Yes, you read that right! A $1 million USD mountain bike. If you are wondering what’s the reason for the astronomically priced item, it is because of the 24k gold plating, 600 black diamonds encrusted in the emblem, and 500 golden sapphires. It’s completely handcrafted and includes uncommon luxuries such as a customized saddle made from the finest chocolate brown alligator and a gold plating covered water bottle accented with chocolate brown stingray. It is now titled the most expensive bicycle in the world. The bicycles will be very limited, only 13 produced.  

The House of Solid Gold’s CEO, Mr. Power, announced recently his excitement about working closely with The Way to Happiness Foundation International, a global non-profit, non-religious charitable organization whose sole mission is to reverse the moral decay of society by restoring trust and honesty the world over through the publication and widespread distribution of “The Way to Happiness” booklet, a common sense guide to better living.  The majority, 90% or more, of the proceeds from the sale of this golden bicycle will go directly to this global organization.
