HLZBLZ Summer 2014 Lookbook

HLZBLZ Summer 2014 Lookbook

My gurl Lanie from HLZBLZ just dropped her second installment of her SS2014 “HVN & HLZ” collection dedicated to fly gurls that takes style cues from the underground subcultures of Los Angeles and New York. The lookbook was shot in LA by Taryn ‘TeekTheSneak’ Anderson and modeled by Cenit Nadir.

The key piece from the collection is the “YVEZ” statement dress in which New York graphic artist, Naturel created his rendition of one of the greatest brands in designer clothing. The piece is offered in a black minimal color way with a striking mesh attachment. Other pieces in the collection includes: hats, signature graphic tops, swimsuits and jerseys.

The HLZBLZ Summer 2014 collection is available now on hlzblz.com. Shop it!

Vans OTW x STAMPD Tesella

Vans OTW x STAMPD Tesella

Vans has tapped LA based streetwear brand STAMPD to collaborate on a deluxe edition of the Tesella for its OTW collection. The Vans OTW x STAMPD Tesella sneaker features a minimalist color scheme, focusing on premium materials and iconic styling cues. The upper is crafted in a black supple calf leather and an UltraCush™ Lite base outfitted in a speckled finish. Pretty sleek right?

The Tesella is a progressive tie back to Vans’ design heritage as the iconic checkerboard print is expressed as handwoven uppers and a lightweight, waffle tread outsole pays homage to the original waffle sole pattern. Additional detailing includes waxed laces, metal eyelets, micro suede lining, embossed STAMPD tongue branding and printed Vans OTW logo footbed.

The Vans OTW x STAMPD Tesella retails for $160 and launches through the STAMPD pop-up shop (located at 8860 Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood, CA) at 11am PST on August 2nd and online at 12am PST on August 4th.

H&M Men’s Autumn 2014 Lookbook

H&M Men’s Autumn 2014 Lookbook

H&M released its Autumn 2014 lookbook inspired by a mix of modern mod, Parisian cool with the attitude of London and the sleekness of New York for men. The key pieces in the collection include: wool coat, biker jacket, elongated bomber jacket, white shirt, check flannel shirt, reinvented crewneck, tailored trackpants, leather trousers. The color palette is focused on black, greys and whites.

“This look is straight from the city- an urban silhouette where the key details are in the pieces themselves. The zips of the biker jacket, the cut of the city coat, the stitching of the leather trousers all define the season,” says Andreas Löwenstam, H&M’s Head Menswear Designer.

The collection is slated to release at H&M stores worldwide and online starting in September.

Last week I attended the US launch of Samsung’s Level™ portfolio of premium mobile audio products. The collection of three premium headphones (Level Over, Level On and Level In) and a Bluetooth speaker (Level Box) are currently available at gilt.com/level and amazon.com.

All four devices can be easily connected to smartphones and tablets for audio pleasure, and the Level Over can be further customized using the Samsung Level App to elevate the audio experience. Level Over is available for $349.99, Level On $179.99, Level In $149.99 and Level Box $169.99. I quite like the quilted leather design on the Level Over, pretty chic.
