THE Collaboration: Supreme x LV

It finally arrived. We waited for long, but it's finally here. Supreme x Louis Vuitton is up for grabs.

Only few had been able to grab some of these goodies, while the rest of humans wait or pay extortionate amounts through re-sale sites like ebay. And taking into account the face value of the most-coveted Supreme tee was €390, you can expect how much it will be as a re-sale.

For those who are unaware of what I am talking about (how could you?!)...Supreme is a NY brand aimed at skater peeps, however it has quickly escalated to be one of the most demanded brands in the fashion industry. Anybody who's somebody has THE supreme logo t-shirt. And if you disagree, then you just can't get it or can't afford it, my friend. As for Louis Vuitton...well, I don't think that an explanation? If you do, then you are probably at the wrong page.

Now imagine a combination of the two brands together. High end + the cool kid in town = KA-CHING! The LVMH Group has increased its sales thanks to the collab, which is only re-stocking in three of its flagship stores in Japan.

Items from the collaboration include everything from baseball jackets and parkas to denim outerwear, baseball jerseys, PJs, tees, jeans, track pants, and a tone of accessories, also including homeware such as blankets, pillows and more. Cause, who wouldn't have that?

In any case, if you are one of the lottery winners, I am slightly jeals. For the rest of mortals, see below some of my favorite pieces from the collection.

SHOES: Lady Camilla

She's been out and about for a while now but Camilla Elphick has definitely revolutionized the foowear world. You know how much I love a splash of colour  in my clothes and accessories and she definitely provides that.

I think you can tell she's the British protégée of shoe designers Sophia Webster and Charlotte Olympia. Her style comes along the lines of the icon's playful and quirky collections. I mean, who would have thought of integrating such a childhood icon like Pez candy as a heel?


WE LOVE: Mr. Drawbertson brings back Pop Art

If you are indeed a fashionista you must already know about Mr. Donald Robertson, the Head of Creative Development at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics and the genius artist that has been on the spotlight over ther last year. 

Donald Robertson's (aka Drawbertson) artworks are like an eye candy: funky, colorful and so much fun! It sometimes reminds me to the pop-art movement.  It amazes me how he can draw, tape, build, or doodle on practically anything! I'm definitely saving up to score on of his pieces home. 

WE LOVE: Spanish Folkore

A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.
— Marcus Garvey

You can't deny your roots, they are part of who you are! I am very proud to be Spanish. I love the culture and how different it is whether you leave in a big city like Madrid or Barcelona or your leave in the South or the North of Spain. The variety of offerings it's what makes it so special! That translate in so many levels, not only culture but also fashion. 

Take a look at these inspiring portraits by Pilar Hormaechea, showcasing the traditional style of the Spanish culture.
