Ladies and gentlemen, we're really proud to introduce you to "THE ICON PROJECT": a series of 8 products manufactured in a very limited number, as a tribute to Nike's 8 most iconic pieces. Designed and produced for Nike by LALO, a loose collaborative unit which works on one-off projects for various brands. LALO involves some of the creative talent behind the seminal british label Silas and Maria.
The 8 products look great, carefully manufactured as they have been by artisans, using high quality materials like saddle leather, silver details, cashmere. Each item comes in a hand made stamped box and is individually labelled and numbered. The labels are hand embroidered and the branding consists of a small engraved swoosh on the silver beads and zip pulls that decorate them.
Until here, the good news. Do you want to know the bad ones? THE ICON PROJECT is run in a ultra limited production (64 pieces in total) and it is not meant for commercial use. It will only be available to Nike top celebrity clientele.

We've had a look at the NSW FW09's Lookbook and we've decided that these Nike Star Vintage (in our beloved Nike Stüssy Blazer colourway...) are the winner of the "Shoes of the day" contest. They look great!
The rest of the FW09 Collection here.

There is a fil rouge in all of the Jun Takahashi's works: the research for beauty! That kind of obsession allowed him to reinvent the fashion system in a provocative and spectacular way. You can find, now, the same obsession for clothes also in his last creature: the new UnderCover® Flagship Store in Aoyama, Tokyo. We could say that it is fantastic, clean, revolutionary and elegant, but we think that the pics we received speak for themselves. So, enjoy!

We've been friend of Sharma since we first met her during a job in London more than three years ago, so we've been happy to know that she's a career woman with a zine online (check WAH on our link's list on the right page) and a Nail Salon just opened in East London. DazedDigital got in touch with her and had an interesting chat. Check it out! Well done sista!
