Colour bursting rainbows!
Although every fashion-oriented blog/site/portal is raving about S/S 14 collections (Kenzo was A-MAZING!!), I'm sending my love towards another collection. As you can see, it's the menswear part of the Jeremy Scott x adidas Originals AW 13 collection.
Yet again, it's full of colours, prints, and crazy fashion adapted to the aesthetic of the German sportswear giant. Teddy-bear hi-tops, gold, rainbows, and now a bit of floral screams Jeremy Scott all the way. The whole thing is still very sporty which makes the story more approachable and interesting. Why couldn't you work out in a rainbow-coloured animal print?! Jeremy Scott says you can.
Collaboration-made sneakers are always a big hit, and JS x aO is no different. Their winged & teddy-beared models became a symbol for sporty high-low fashion, and newly introduced models are on their way to join them. I simply adore the Miami Beach pastel hi-tops which are a perfect match for the Miami Vice fashion sensibility I try to embody lately. Plus, the pastel tones they used are beautiful.
The print I'm mostly drawn to must be the floral fuschia-orchid one - it's probably the fact that the print alone looks very feminine, but interpreted in classic pieces such is a classic bomber jacket, it looks like a simple statement piece one needs to have in their own closet (and when I say one I mean me).
Can't wait for the collection to come to the stores - I'm certainly finding some pieces as a good idea to invest in. We shall se...
