Balenciaga wears their Sunglasses at Night!

Balenciaga Spring Summer 2021 Paris Fashion Week (October 5, 2020)

The World feels a bit better now with this show. Slick, nice music, real streetz, Paris at Nuit. Aaaah, feeling good today. Check out the Balenciaga S/S 2021 Runway show and the Streetzblog Hi-Lights and Low-Lights below:

Hi-Lights

  • The dark streetz
  • The womens wear especially the silver dress and bright outfit and the slashed/ripped dress
  • The silver phone case necklaces
  • The Music. Sunglasses at Night by Corey Hart. Sounds like it was remastered and a few extra beats added to the OG. Fits the vibe like a glove
  • The Sunglasses. The Big Black versions!
  • There’s a pair of shoes somewhere in here that has actual springs on them. Pro Tip: They are called the X-Pander, the latest and greatest street sneaks from Balenciaga.
  • The Setting-Paris and the Eiffel Tower
  • The Yellow E’s Good on Halloween Smiley Face T
  • The crisp cool lighting and Electro vibe of the video

The Low-Lights

  • Some of the guys clothes-looked too 1990’s and cut off jeans?
  • No Masks
  • Need a close up of the sneakers with the springs
  • More Post Apocalyptic. Has the setting the music the vibe, but not the clothes
  • Faded Jeans
  • Bulky parkas and long trenches

Also, be sure to look over the credits at the end. Very detailed information about social distancing, sanitizing and even info on how the snacks and food was served and eaten.

Note for later: The Date on this show is October 5, 2020.

We are now really and Officially in the Blade Runner/Mad Max reality world. The FUTURE is NOT later, it is NOW.

See you on the Streetz!

I wear my Sunglasses at Night

Coachella 2016

IMG_7482
Two big weekends of Coachella 2016 have come and gone. It’s the start of the U.S.A’s Festival season and it also kicks off the Summers clothing trends. Past years have brought us lots of Flower Power, Faded Short Denim Shorts,  Crocheted Everything, and 1970’s Rock Band Shirts.

2016 brought us many pairs of various Sunglasses, most of which were worn at Night during the EDM shows. The pairs I noticed the most were Aviators with mirrored lenses in various shades of Bright Aqua, Electric Orange, Rushing Red, Vibrant Green and Sun Streaked Yellow. Mostly worn by hip, young good-looking males and females in the front rows.

*My friend, Kevin K thinks that they were given away FREE as a guerilla marketing technique. If so, they were very successful and  most likely Ray-Bans. If not, it was just the thing to do…Wear your Sunglasses at Night. Most likely a mixture of the 2, because there sure were a lot of Sunglasses worn Night and Day at Coachella 2016!

According to Polyvore the most popular fashion festival trends in 2016 are Sunglasses and Boots. Listed below are the top 10 of each:

Top 10 Sunglasses

  1. Mirrored Sunglasses
  2. Cat-Eye Sunglasses
  3. Aviator Sunglasses
  4. Rose Gold
  5. Heart-Shaped
  6. Metal Framed
  7. Half-Frame (Not quite familiar with this one)
  8. Round Metal
  9. Black Square
  10. Star Shaped

*The Colored Mirrored Aviators are what I noticed as the number 1 trend for Summer 2016.

Top 10 Boots

  1. Combat Boots (So last year or 1982)
  2. Rain Boots
  3. Suede Over the Knee Boots (Don’t even own a pair of these..LOL)
  4. Cowboy (Saw these in the office for the 1st time in 22 years)
  5. Riding
  6. Flat Ankle
  7. Cut-Out Ankle Boots
  8. Pointy-Toe Ankle
  9. Peep-Toe Ankle
  10. Hidden Wedge

*I know number one is combat boots and Docs, but I would have put them in separate categories. Going with Combat Boots at number 1 and Doc Martins at number 2.

Highlights and from Coachella 2016 Included:

Grimes:  I’ve never seen her perform before and truly enjoyed the energy, in the moment mixing, the dancing, crazy beats and what I’d call her totally own style of a music genre. Great Show!

Zedd on Saturday and Calvin Harris on Sunday with LIVE performances by the actual singers of the tunes during their DJ sets. The lights and pyro of both shows were also awesome and the homage to Daft Punk was excellent. If you’ve ever seen the Daft Punk Documentary, they show how Daft Punk paved the way to the super-star millionaire DJ of today. And the break thru moment happened when they played Coachella.

Loved it how they both played Daft Punk’s One More Time. BTW: In 2000, I had a Music TV show called XLR8TV with my Friend Don F and on our last show we played One More Time, One More Time, Then again One More Time, while I introduced it again and again without laughing..for the full half hour of the show. Was so, totally awesome!


Overall, Coachella was quite good this year; YouTube and T-Mobile did a nice job streaming it live the first weekend. It was very clear on my iPhone, a little glitchy on my MacBook Pro, but overall the best I’ve seen over the years.
The only sucky part was the G&R Reunion. Axl looked really funny on his throne and as far as I could tell they played only 3 songs on YouTube, then 1 song on someones Periscope/Twitter feed for a total of 4 songs. That doesn’t seem quite worth the millions of dollars they paid the band. But, I will say they did sound good. Clear, concise and seemed to be quite professional about the whole gig.

See you on the Streetz! This weekend at Sustainable Coastlines Clean-Up, May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii, My B-Day, The Basketball Court and hopefully Yoga and the Beach.

Here’s Corey Hart’s: Sunglasses at Night Video. Yep, I couldn’t resist it. Enjoy!

 

A Beacon of LIght and Darks from Warby Parker

First,Fresh,Fab look at the brand new Warby Parker Limited Edition Beacon Collection

Today/Thursday July 22nd 2014 is the Big release date for the Limited Edition Beacon Collection of Warby Parker Glasses. They come in some pretty sweet styles made for your Nightlife excapades or Daily sojourns. And probably one of the coolest things about these glasses is every time you purchase a pair, a pair is distributed  to someone in need through their non-profit partners. Warby Parker is also the brand with the Home Try-On opportunity. You can choose 5 pairs, try em’ for 5 days, see what you think, keep what you like and send back the others. Or if you’re like me, who never returns anything, you can keep all 5 pairs.  Get ready to add some stylish and classy looks to your outfits during the day at work or play. Or outside when you need a little Fun in the Sun.  Right now these two are making me really hungry!

Warby Parker Man and Lady Eating Noodles

Here’s a  couple of Warby Parker fans as they ponder what to do tonight as they watch the beautiful sunset. You and I both know, tonight, There’s no Sleep till’ Brooklyn. 

Taking on the evening in some styling glasses. Continuing the trend set in the 90’s where you don’t need a prescription lens to rock your style. The same trend made HUGE by the likes of D-Wade and Lebron James & Kevin Durant and Russell Westberg over the last few years during their post game interviews. This Beacon Collection gives you the opportunity to sport the similar trend, yet with a bit more of an understated style.

Check out the New Limited Edition Beacon collection below or see and seek out your newest pair of shades here.  Whether you need to style up your day look or protect your eyes in some glamorous shades at the pool or beach. There’s something for everyone here. Out of this batch I personally like the Tiger Tortoise frames with the electric blue glass. These would go great with a Navy two button sports jacket, a dark brown T,  some brownish gold Diesel Jeans, and of course my favorite burnished brown/gold Marc Jacobs Kicks.

And my most favorite of the collection are these two. I think I tend toward the tortoise color since my hair is like the glasses, always changing shades, similar to the colors in the glasses. Which are your favorite pair?

See you on the Hawaii Streetz, This weekend, I have a couple parties to go to, some basketball to play, and some Vitamin D to get at the beach…of course wearing a pair of very, very dark shades. I’ll be going out a bit stealth this weekend looking for some new trends and pictures to take and of course, I need to protect my pupils from the blazing Summer Sun.
