Versace Is Making Sneakers Inspired by Jennifer Lopez’s Iconic Green Dress

Nineteen years later, Jennifer Lopez’s plunging, jungle-themed dress is still iconic.
Case in point: the Versace number, which Lopez wore to the Grammy Awards in 2000, is getting the sneaker treatment in a collaboration between the fashion house and clothing brand, Concepts.
Launching Friday, the two have partnered for a limited-edition Chain Reaction platform sneaker that mimics the green, jungle-print seen on Lopez’s dress. The sneakers retail for $ 1,075.

Lopez’s dress is still celebrated as a cultural emblem of the early aughts and is credited for catapulting the singer and actress to fashion icon status. The dress was the impetus behind Google launching Google Images, with former chief executive officer, Eric Schmidt, stating that Lopez’s dress was the most popular search term that the company had ever seen.
The limited-edition sneaker is available in both men and women’s sizes and will be available on Concepts’ web site and stores in Boston and New York.

Swarovski Picks Winner of CSM Design Project, Inspired by Dior

LONDON — Piran Caseley has been announced as the winner of Swarovski’s latest initiative, The Jewelry Design project, with Central Saint Martins. Caseley has been awarded a prize of 1,000 pounds for his Swarovski embellished necklace molded into the shape of a water splash.
Caseley said he was inspired by the perfumes of Christian Dior and created a visual representation of a perfume spray.
The students were tasked with creating jewelry inspired by V&A’s exhibition, “Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams” and incorporating Swarovski’s Aurora Borealis stone, which was created by Manfred Swarovski and Christian Dior.
The stone features a thin layer of vaporized blue metal creating an iridescent effect through the crystal, reminiscent of the Northern Lights, hence, the stone’s name.
Out of the 32 entries, 10 students have been shortlisted by a panel that included course leader Giles Last, Leanne Manfredi from the V&A and Kate Filmer-Wilson, executive vice president of operations at Swarovski.
“This year, the opportunity for students to combine Swarovski product with their responses to the Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition has been a wonderful, insightful and exciting experience for the whole group. The 10 shortlisted students have gained enormously in terms of designing and making an ambitious piece and

W Hotels Launches Online Closet Inspired by Joan Smalls

OFF-DUTY LOOKS: W Hotels has revealed the exclusive “Off Duty” Closet, the latest project inspired by Joan Smalls, the brand’s global fashion innovator. W Hotels and creative director Sarah Easley will introduce 25 items inspired by Smalls’ lifestyle.
The Closet is available online starting Thursday until it’s sold out. The “Off Duty” Closet includes pieces from seven designers who have created signature items for the Closet’s limited release. They include a hat, shoes, jackets, shirts, jeans, jewelry and sunglasses, some of which are available in multiple colors and styles. In light of the recent disaster in Puerto Rico and in honor of Smalls’ passion for her heritage, she will dedicate all her royalties from the “Off Duty” Closet to Unidos for Puerto Rico, which will be matched by W Hotels in support of ongoing relief efforts.
“Everyone knows what I wear on the runway, in my shoots or on TV, but when I’m not in front of a camera I still curate my look — I spend so much time traveling, what I wear when I’m off duty shapes a lot of my personal style,” said Smalls.
The selection includes items from Veronica Beard, Yestadt Millinery, K/ller Collection, Kwewe, Rails, Jibs Life and Road Twenty-Two.

The Hidden Ways Dior and Chanel Inspired Minnie Mouse

Minnie Mouse has been having a major fashion moment as of late, but when you look back through Disney‘s history you realize…she’s pretty much always been having a moment. Vans is the latest to immortalize her as a fashion icon, including the fabulous little rodent in its special Disney capsule collection, released earlier this summer. But long before the world had ever heard of a fashion collaboration, Minnie was brushing elbows with some of the style world’s biggest names.

minnie-mouse-1937

Minnie and friends in 1937

The iconic polka-dot skirt? It was inspired by Coco Chanel‘s designs from the 1920s. Twenty years later, her original outfit became a touch more voluminous due to Christian Dior‘s infamous New Look (the same postwar runway styling that influenced women’s wardrobes around the globe). And while you’d be forgiven for identifying the pillbox hat exclusively with Jackie Kennedy., Minnie can lay some claim to it too.

“She’s always evolved through the decades. Like in the ’30s, her pillbox hat with the daisy was such an icon that women’s hats started to reduce in size significantly,” Soo Koo, a vice president within Disney’s Consumer Products division, told Glamour. “The character has really aligned itself with fashion.”

Shoppers and fashion-observers might have noticed the recent spate of Minnie-connected offerings (like Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s and Dazed‘s high-fashion photo shoot), but don’t be confused: =The character has been in this game for a long time.

minnie-mouse-shoes

A look at the process from Vans’ recent collaboration with Disney.

“She’s one of our most universally recognized characters,” Koo said. “We’ve been collaborating with designers for the past 10 years, from Comme des Garçons to a high-end Italian furniture designer. Lanvin even did a dress for Minnie to celebrate her 20th anniversary in the parks in Paris.”

The Vans connection itself might have fresh stock to offer, but it’s a relationship that’s familiar to Minnie and friends.

“We have a relationship that dates back to the [Vans founder] Van Doren days, which began in the late ’60s, early ’70s,” explained Vans’ head designer Rian Pozzebon. “Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Winnie the Pooh were actually featured on Vans footwear back in the ’80s, so when we worked with the Disney group [this time], it felt right to blend their classics with our classics.”

Singer-Songwriter Matt Gold Releases ‘Low’ Video Inspired By His Personal Relationships

Indiana-based singer-songwriter Matt Gold says the video for his new track, “Low,” is inspired from “having been broken down” in his relationships.

The song, which was released in April, melds Gold’s haunting melodies with personal lyrics. The out musician, who has developed a cult following with performances on college campuses and in intimate venues across the nation, hopes the tune once again expresses “the overall human experience” as opposed to anything specifically gay or queer.

“While a pat on the back or a hug can ease your pain for a second, no one really knows what is going on inside,” Gold told The Huffington Post in an interview. “They can say they relate, but can they really?”

In a music scene that has embraced openly gay performers like Sam Smith and Adam Lambert, Gold says he is ultimately happy to be “making music that is authentic to who I am” and “grateful for anyone, gay or straight, who understands my message.”

“Everybody has something to bring to the table, and hopefully I am something you come back for,” he added.

Hear more of Matt Gold’s music on his website here, or check him out on Facebook and Twitter.

Model Ashley Graham’s New Lingerie Line Is Inspired By ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

Major congratulations are in order for model Ashley Graham.

After five seasons designing lingerie for Addition Elle, a Canada-based plus-size retailer, Graham will finally release her lingerie line in the United States, according to Women’s Wear Daily. Her newest collection, which is inspired by “Fifty Shades Of Grey,” includes four bras with bondage-inspired removable straps and lace details, four styles of underwear, a chemise and a kimono, and will be sold on Nordstrom.com as well as two of the store’s locations. Prices range from $ 30 for underwear to $ 95 for the chemise and kimono.

ashley graham

The model and body activist, who has covered fashion magazines and starred in a slew of campaigns, is a pioneer in the fight to change standards of beauty. The conversation has already begun, thanks largely in part to the work Graham and her colleagues have done to create the plus-size model group ALDA. However, the lack of fashionable options for women of all sizes thus far prevents the shift from becoming a reality. Graham’s line is another step in the right direction toward inclusiveness.

When it came to choosing a retailer, the opportunity was a good one for both Nordstrom and Addition Elle. “We currently carry several brands that offer plus sizes in their range, but very few focus solely on serving the plus-size customer,” said Kristin Frossmo, Nordstrom’s vice president, in a conversation with WWD.

Here’s hoping more retailers follow Nordstrom’s lead. Head to Addition Elle to see more from Ashley’s collection, and be sure to check out the line when it hits Nordstrom.

How Losing His Brother in Vietnam Inspired One Man to Join the Civil Rights Movement | #Selma50

For Herb Metoyer, the period from 1963 to 1965 is still an open wound. In 1963, during his first tour as a helicopter pilot in Vietnam, he lost several aircrafts and quite a few crew members, which he refers to as his first experience with death. Then, in November, he and the rest of the country learned of John F. Kennedy Jr.’s assassination. Finally, when he returned to the United States in early 1964, he was told that his brother, a fellow helicopter pilot, died when his aircraft crashed in the South China Sea.

Shark Attack Survivor, Mike Coots’s Stunning Instagram Photos Will Keep You Inspired

This is Mike Coots.

When he was 17 years old, he lost his right leg to a shark attack while surfing off waters in his home island of Kauai.

For some, his story might be terrifying just to hear, even 17 years later…

But for Coots, it’s just something you “gotta laugh” about.

While babysitting his six-year-old-nephew, this was presented to him: “It’s you, uncle Mike,” his nephew told him.

He has immense respect for the ocean and does his part in keeping it clean.


“We need to take better care of our oceans,” Coots writes. “Here is a crapload of net and rope this morning. Must of been a few hundred pounds.”

And he shows incredible compassion for the creature that once caused him so much pain.

Coots is an ambassador for the conservation of sharks. In 2010, he was part of the effort to pass a ban on the possession and sale of shark fins.

“I remember the first time getting back in the water … I remember jumping in the ocean, and it felt glorious,”

Coots recalls in a 2012 interview with The Huffington Post.

To this day, he continues to inspire all those who view his incredible photos…

…and hears the story of that one day…

…seventeen years ago…

When a majestic creature changed his life, forever.

Mike Coots is now a professional photographer whose work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Hawaii Magazine, Discovery Channel and more. See a portfolio of his work here.
