Gorman Adventure Sneakers | June 07, 2013

Above are just a few of the gorgeous sneakers produced by Gorman in collaboration with talented artists such as Ellie Malin, Beci Orpin, Ashley Goldberg, Kat McCleod, Miranda Skoczek.... the list goes on. There's less than a day to place a bid on these one-of-a-kind art pieces (not to be worn!) so hurry in. (Yes, I'm late to the party on this one). All proceeds go to charity.

Have a great weekend folks! :)

Mavericks Laces | April 24, 2013

I don't often post about cool branding. Why is that? I love the stuff. 

Nor do I post very often about men's fashion. Although, technically, I suppose laces do have unisex appeal. 

I stumbled upon Mavericks Laces while looking up the design group responsible for the Melbourne Pub Group newsletters that I've been inexplicably receiving in my inbox recently and, despite not being a pub person at all, have not unsubscribed to because the newsletters are so dang pretty.

Anyway... I discovered that the talented designers behind them are Condensed and while browsing their lovely folio happened upon their branding for Mavericks Laces. Pretty branding to match some pretty products.

I also love how Mavericks has a page dedicated to different ways of tying your laces. Cute.
