A few weeks before going to Spain, La Maison Louis Vuitton sent us the whole Louis Vuitton and Kanye West shoe collection at the office. The luxury brand gave us the opportunity to organise a photoshoot in the streets, and produce an exclusive lifestyle photos story for La MJC website. As far as I know, it’s the first time the shoes are showed in a real situation, and it’s also the first time that a website published such a fashion story. I have to admit, since I got my hands on them, I’ve changed my mind. They are really impressive in person and I’m in love with the white Mr Hudson.

These are looking better and better as the release date gets closer.
I’d take a picture holding these by my face and make it my profile pic (Snark)

PARIS – Marc Jacobs and the Louis Vuitton men’s studio director Paul Helbers have some design competition this season. Kanye West, who was sitting front row at the Vuitton show, has designed a line of five LV sneakers. Only one design, above, was featured in the show – a monochromatic midtop with no frills, save for a quilted flap in the back, all the easier to tuck pants into. “The inspiration came from a jacket with a huge collar in the movie ‘Dune,’ ” West says. “Most sneakers focus on the tongue, so I wanted to do something different.” West knows whereof he speaks: he says he has no idea how many shoes he owns, but he does know that he routinely needs to send shipments off to storage. The LV-meets-Kanye kicks will be available at Louis Vuitton stores in June.
This week Louis Vuitton will be celebrating the launch of the Stephen Sprouse collection in their Soho flagship store. For the occasion the store will be entirely wrapped in Stephen Sprouse graffiti and among the special items to release is also the skateboard shown after the bump.
Louis Vuitton always manages to surprise us by taking whatever they do to the next level. For their flagship store on 5th avenue in New York, Louis Vuitton covers the facade of the building with Takashi Murakami’s signature multi-colored monogram print. The result is a stunning branded landmark that no one can miss. Furthermore, this store features a “bag bar” that is often seen at LV stores around the world but with moving parts. If you’re in New York, it’s definitely worth a visit.

Don’t short yourself on survival gear.
Designer Gas masks by Diddo Velema
We are in a state of perpetual war – with ourselves and with the eco-system that sustains us. Perpetual war breeds perpetual fear. In the present context, this fear stems from our extreme desire for authenticity and manifests itself in our collectively insatiable culture of consumption.
Deep down, we are afraid we may never be satisfied. An expanding archive of branded myths and icons feeds this fear. Designer Gas Masks is an attempt to visualize this state of mind. Because it is only by first acknowledging and then challenging fear that we will all be able to breathe a little easier.
Designer Gas Masks is a conceptual art project. The masks are not real commercial products. They’re made for gallery purposes only.
