Reimagining Nike Classics

Its newest effort is Nike 1 Reimagined, a collection of 10 new takes on the Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 1 designed by a team of 14 female Nike employees — including colorists, materials specialists and mainline footwear designers — handpicked by Footwear Director Andy Caine. "The genesis of creativity is diversity," says Caine in an official statement. "From a design point of view, each of the designers has a very unique background and personality. Our theory is that when you mix diverse creative talents you realize some magic."

With a simple brief by Caine ("Make some cool shit."), the select designers had complete creative power to produce their own interpretations of two classic Nike sneakers. Georgina James, Design Director for NSW Women's footwear and notable designer behind Nike's Studio Wrap, was assigned to lead the group, spearheading brainstorm meetings for a week at the brand's headquarters in Portland, and four days in London to actually execute the 10 sneakers.

My eyes light up whenever I see that distinctive blue - Tiffany & Co. box! I am also a big fan of their newest Chief Artistic Officer, Reed Krakoff who took the creative position earlier this year. Reed Krakoff oversees the design of Tiffany & Co. brand jewelry, luxury accessories, store design, and marketing. Talk about a great gig! 

Their most recent campaigns have included some famous (and talented!) women such as Elle Fanning, Zöe Kravitz, Janelle Monáe, and Annie Clark.

Statement Sleeves

I live in Arizona which basically means it is warm year round. It is so hot at times you are forced to stay in doors for three months. I basically say goodbye to any fashion trend that has to do with layers. So, for me spring in Phoenix is the one time of the year where I can indulge in some of fashion;s latest trends before the sidewalk starts melting.Many of the "it" trends that were crossing the spring 2017 runway shows included sleeve slits and exaggerated ruffles with a gentle romantic flare. With all that has been cooking in the world of politics, fashion has caught on to women embracing their femininity in full force.
