Rita Ora x Adidas
I’m not going to write much, just going to show pictures of Rita Ora x Adidas, and a couple pix from the Terry Richardson photo shoot. I just like the vibe and the styling of both. And am taking a break from a very time consuming blog post I have in my draft section. Enjoy!
See you on the streetz of many Halloween events and parties. And hopefully at the beach on Sunday, If I can wake up and get out of the house!
Carbs at Chanel…Really?
Actress India Muenez (Something in the Air, Mall and the upcoming Pretty in Green) wore this Bagel Bag to a big time star-studded Chanel No. 5 dinner in NYC. Bagels are a pretty fattening carb loaded breakfast food, that would probably not be consumed on a Chanel Model’s diet. Although it could have been since Chanel did do the Grocery Store Runway Show during Paris Fashion Week for the Fall 2014 collection.
Turns out it’s a knock off. Or to keep it safe or politically correct, Canadian Artist’s Chloe Wise calls it a part of an ongoing Sculpture Series. I guess that’s how people get away with a knock off nowadays, they call it art. After a bit of internet searching, turns out this piece is actually entitled Bagel No. 5. India modeled the bag for C. Wise in a fake ad that went with the sculpture at a gallery showing. India mentioned to the artist that she was going to a Chanel dinner party and asked to borrow the cheeky breakfast bag. Of course the artist said Yes. I’d say, Quite a great way to get a ton of free publicity.
And since Moschino made all the McDonald’s inspired bags and phone cases in 2014, people probably thought it was a real Chanel piece. Would you wear it? Do you think it’s a knock-off? Is it cool to call it a piece of art? I wonder if it’s on sale now at Canal Street near Chinatown in NYC. Hmm.
How bout’ the Moschino McDonald’s Gear? Would you rock these looks? Do you have friends who have these pieces? Or have you seen these on the streetz? I saw an actual McDonald’s worker talking on her phone with the expensive Moschino McDonald’s case way out in the suburbs of Waukegan, Illinois around Memorial Day 2014. I thought I was seeing things, it was just one of those moments!
Have a nice week. See you on the streetz.
Which Wang Will You Wear?
Today/Thursday October 16, 2014, the full Alexander Wang x H&M collection was shown at a runway show in NYC. You can watch the show here. Seen at the fashion show were Oscar-Nominated Interstellar star, Jessica Chastain, Charlie’s Angels star Justin Theroux, Entourage and American Horror Story’s Kate Mara, and Beyonce’s Sister famous for her elevator ride with Jay Z, Solange Knowles. Musical guests included: Diplo,Jesse Marco, Sharaya J and Missy Elliot.
Below are pictures of many of the women’s pieces all courtesy of Vogue. Check out the very definite Black, White and Grey color palette. These looks are best described as:
Urban Chic, Sporty Street, Wang Bang Broadway, Health Club to Goth Club, Mad Max Back in Black, Three Shades of Wang or Dark Vader Athletic.
Seems many of the pieces of the collection are unisex. Some of the looks worn by the ladies look like some great men’s looks and vice-versa. I’m still digging the black, white and grey color palette. And now the black reflective tape is looking very tempting too.Yet, I still have my eye on that grey Puffer jacket.
Here are some of the Men’s looks courtesy of whowhatwear.
I doubt I’ll need the rubber pieces, a bit too hot to wear in Hawaii.But many of the other looks are quite wearable here and around the world. I’m hoping there’s some black and grey combat boots for men and I’ve had my eyes on that black leather back pack ($249) since the early pictures came out. Remember, the Alexander Wang x H&M Gear drops on Thursday November 6, 2014 at over 250 H&M stores and on-line at H&M. Prices range from $10-$350. Which is your favorite look?
Miranda Kerr’s Instagram shows her in Hawaii
#CelebSighting in Hawaii. Miranda Kerr posted this picture having her nails done @nailsinyourroom Hawaii. Prior to this photo she posted a picture of some men dancing at a traditional Hawaiian Luau. And after this picture Miranda posted a map of the Big Island.
Seems she wants to enjoy utilizing her Instagram account and reporting to us all that she’s in Hawaii. Yet, she’s still pretty secretive on exactly where she is? It looks like a quick stop over from a trip to Korea on her way back to NYC. Maybe we’ll see her on the streetz this weekend. Or knowing a celeb this BIG, she’s probably already on a plane to get out of here before the Ana Storm hits this weekend. We who live out here, had yet another Hurricane scare this week, looks like it will just be a TON of rain and some high winds. But for sure no Beaching or Surfing this weekend. Good weekend to catch up on some housework and movie binging.
Instead of showing a sexy Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show or a Model shoot, which many of you have probably already seen. Let’s watch this fun vid of Miranda playing Red Cup Flip Cup with Jimmy Fallon. Guess who will win prior to watching. Hint: It is a very close match.
If anyone knows where Miranda is staying in Hawaii, please do let us know in the comments section below. Hopefully it doesn’t rain too much this weekend, and I’ll see you on the streets of Waikiki.
10/17/14 Streetzblog Editor’s Update: Looks like Miranda is staying in Waikiki at either Trump Towers, the Halekaulani or the Modern. Miranda was in town for the Samantha Thavasa event at Ala Moana Center on Thursday 10/16/14. Of course, she looked pretty incredible wearing a crisp, clean nice white dress with matching white handbag with sparkling dangling earrings. Picture is courtesy of Tyson Joines Instagram Account.

New Louboutin’s for October 2014
Check out these styling new Louboutin’s for Men. So many Studs, Such fun colors. I suspect, also pretty pricey. But I’m afraid to look. If you want to see more of the new collection and dare to check the pricing, see these and others on Louboutin’s French Website here.
I would probably get the black one’s first, just because I like to stay a bit ghost with my style. But the pair above have a really nice shade of medium blue that doesn’t always come out, these might be the best bet for the money. The plaid pair would go nice with a dark brown suit. And Wow! Check out the candy colored studs. They look good enough to eat, like a retro candy necklace or sharper versions of the little dots of colored candies on the thin strips of paper. If you really want to meet some new people at a party, this is the pair to purchase. Some very tasty treats!
See the trailer below for the Focus movie. It has a bit of an independant vibe, yet stars Will Smith! Looks very exciting, suspenseful and a must see movie.
Must See Music Videos-Thursday October 2, 2014
Poison Ivory-Mr. Wonderful: My friend Romeo Valentine just came back from a star-studded tour of L.A. He hit up some clubs like the Greystone where he bumped into Chris Paul, Walter French, Charisma, Don Benjamin, DJ Amen and saw Lebron James in the VIP Lounge. He also went to see Poison Ivory and said that, All the LA DJ’s were there to check her out. They are banking on her being the NBT. I think she fits the blog pretty well, if you watch it, you’ll see some pretty progressive styling. Flo-Green Hair, Designer duds, lots of accessories including some pretty fun sunglasses, necklaces and a very colorful design palette. Which designers clothes and/or Accessories do you notice in the Vid? let us know in the comment section at the bottom of the blog. Also, tell us know if it’s a Yay or Nay on her blowing up big soon?
Chromeo-Old 45’s: This Video is compliments of Chromeo and SSENSE. SSENSE being one of my favorite places to go luxe-life shopping on-line. Well, once in a while shopping, most of the time, Window shopping or Trend watching. This tune was a bit slow and romantic for me the first time I listened to it, but by the 3rd time my feet were tapping the floor. Check out the cameo from Napoleon Dynamite. It’s really fun to see him there, but with all that dancing going on, why doesn’t he dance, did he forget his infamous moves from his big movie? I WANT HIM TO DANCE. But, still cool to see he’s still hanging around the scene. Note: You can get some Chromeo inspired clothing at SSENSE. The black leather biker jacket is pretty sick, see the Chromeo x Surface To Air clothes here.
Ahh, I couldn’t resist, here’s Napoleon Dynamite Doing his Thang. Go Nap D, Go Nap D, Go!
Kaskade-Atmosphere: I had such a great time working the door at this past weekend’s LoveFest. Thanks G, Don and Nikki. So glad you’ve gotten me out of the condo the last 3 years to see how LoveFest has gotten so huge and is such a fun event. I was at LoveFest 1-4 and 14-16. Not sure where I was 5-14, so glad to be back in the mix. Anyways, I had so much fun at LF, now I’m gearing up for Kaskade at Turtle Bay on November 8. So, here’s one of the newer Kaskade tunes. It’s also pretty fashionable and shows some Cool Kids Clothes along with some nice bright yellow and purple Atmosphere shirts. My favorite Kaskade tune is by far I Remember with Angel on my Shoulder and Cant stop DAncing coming in 2nd and 3rd. But this seemed the most fashionable and I’d never heard it until today. So here it is:
Moguai x Benny Benassi-Gangsta: This is my latest find, I actually heard it yesterday for the first time and tracked it down today. Benny is best known for his hit way back when entitled Satisfaction and Moguai is pretty good friends with Deadmau5 and did a couple pretty famous little ditty’s, ACIIID, and U know Y. This tune as all the elements rockin’ the EDM scene now. Stabbing infectious beats, a short repetitive snippet of a cool saying, and the Massive drop everyone digs at all the shows. Fresh, Funky and spot on for October 2, 2014.
Kaskade-The Brocks: I leave you now with One more Kaskade video. As you know I love to visit NYC, play basketball and once in a while attempt to skateboard. Thus, I need to show you this one. It fits so many different vibes that Streetzblog conveys. The video matches up great with many a streetzblog post. The song, well, it’s a bit mellow for me, but does have a catchy hook after you listen to it a couple of times.
See you on the streetz of Oahu this week and weekend. And hopefully at Kaskade in November. I’m Already getting ready to seeing everyone in NYC December 18-23, 2014. I can totally smell the crisp, cool, air, taste the best bacon in the world and oh so tasty sweet rolls at the buffet at my hotel and sure hope to see the FIT real or counterfeit exhibition.
Oh and if you forgot to get a Love Festival shirt or weren’t even there and want a dope shirt. There are a few still available over at CityStarsApparel.com
