H&M Loves Coachella 2015 – Weekend One

H&M hosted an exclusive cocktail party at the Parker Palm Springs last week to celebrate their 6th year as an official sponsor of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. The celebration was also held in honor of the brand’s H&M Loves Coachella collection, the first officially branded Coachella clothing line.

The H&M Loves Coachella Collection was offered on festival grounds this year in H&M’s very own “popup shop,” with several select designs that were only available for purchase onsite. Get the Coachella look and shop the full collection now in H&M stores or online at hm.com.

before all the frenzy…

Finally had a chance to edit photos from all the craziness of both NBA All-Star Weekend and New York Fashion Week. Two big events simultaneously taking place is just crazy but not complaining, there were lots of fun events and shows to attend. Everyday was jam packed and I loved it. Before all the frenzy took place, on February 11th, a day before NYFW, I got to be one of the first to check out the Nike SNKRS Station, hosted the COSIGN launch party and partied with Jordan Brand for their 30th Anniversary at 166 Flatbush Ave. It was fun times, got to see a lot of friends and met a lot of readers/followers as well.

Since I’m always in black, white, or grey, I love to add a splash of color with my accessories/shoes. And I can never get sick of these Christian Louboutin Un Bout Pumps, they are too good. Sad that I didn’t pick up every color in these, believe it or not, it’s actually really comfortable! Yes, it was cold out but I had a driver dropping me off door to door, so I can cheat a little. Hope you are all staying warm and safe! Outfit details below.

Harman Courtside: A JBL | NBA All-Star Viewing Experience

If you follow me on Instagram @nitro_licious, you already know that on Friday the 13th, I hung out with JBL, the Official Sound of the NBA, at their Harman Store on Madison Avenue for a courtside NBA All-Star viewing experience. The store was transformed into a “Harman Full-Court Theater” for two private events, I hosted the Friday night one along with Yu-Ming Wu of Freshnessmag.com while Jermaine Dupri provided tunes throughout the night. Portland Trail Blazers own Damian Lillard came through to chill and take pics with fans and I also got to meet him. It was great times with amazing sound and good company.

I also had an amazing time at the NBA All-Star Saturday Night at the Barclays Center with JBL. An East v. West competition with points earned across 4 different events: Shooting Stars, Taco Bell Skills Challenge, Foot Locker 3-Point Contest, and Sprite Slam Dunk (my favorite part). Fun times! Thanks JBL for this fun opportunity to play host and attend NBA events.

Alexander Wang x H&M NYC Launch Event + Missy Elliot Performance

For those that follow me on Instagram @nitro_licious and Vine @nitrolicious, you already know that I was at the Alexander Wang x H&M NYC launch event at the Armory on the Hudson last night for the big celebration. Celebrities like Dakota Fanning, Justin Theroux, Kate Mara, Mary J. Blige, Melissa George, Solange Knowles and more were in attendance. The indoor track and field stadium was transformed into a futuristic racetrack runway with models strutting in the performance-wear inspired collection. The start of the show was a performance with free runners using the show’s set for a parkour performance.

And the moment all the fashion enthusiasts were waiting for was the opening of the pop-up shop in a locker-room setting, a chance to shop the collection 3 weeks before the global launch! The highlight of the night was a special performance by Missy Elliot with an opening act by hip hop artist Sharaya J. DJ and producer Diplo kept the party going for the afterparty. H&M does it again, year after year, their designer collaboration launch events never fails to impress! Epic party, so glad to have been there to experience it all. Congrats to Alexander Wang and H&M!!

Check out the full collection and prices here. Love the whole collection, what’s on your wishlist? The collection will be available in 250 H&M stores worldwide, and online starting November 6, 2014.
