The Snow Boot || My New Steez

26 Jun

i know everyone is currently from a different planet, outerspace, Mars, galactic_ & for one i must say i don’t mind the analogies. It’s one thing to say it, & it’s another to completely embody taking your mind to another place & physically manifesting the thoughts you deliberately hold in your conscious and sub-conscious mind- it’s called Auto Suggestion!

The mix of style & art that the snow boot has evolved into is a perfect ‘physical manifestation’ of how i see a young man like myself being able to bridge the gap in garment representation. Enough said?! – it’ll have to do for now lol !!

La MJC | Lacoste

25 Jun

“Fluctat nec Mergitur”, an old Latin phrase translated to mean “The boat rocks but never sinks”, is not only a metaphor of a mental twister (pointing to something about determination and survival, perhaps?), but also the motto of Paris, and present in the city’s coat of arms depicting a ship floating on rough seas. In the spirit of surviving through tumultuous waves, and everything that’s authentically Paris, nothing can represent the iconic Parisian creativity, lifestyle and attitude more than creative collective, La MJC. Drawing forces from two French icons, La MJC and heritage sportswear label, Lacoste, the duo has partnered up to create a fresh pair of nautical-inspired kicks for the summer, based on Lacoste’s signature low-top Broadwick model.
