A style and travel blog

Monday, 6 March 2017

Planning on buying new kicks? Spring summer 2017 certainly has some interesting styles for you to consider (better yet, to purchase already). Below are a few brands that have caught my attention and worthy of consideration.

Dior Homme

Kris Van Assche has injected a dose of sophistication into his design for SS17. As we all know, it is all in the details. I am particularly smitten with the white boots lace up shoes.

I have never been a fan of Balenciaga's kicks. I thought their Arena sneakers were cool though, when they first came out, but then they got boring after a few years. Fortunately the new creative director, Mr Demna Gvasalia has brought fresh yet exciting new changes to the brand.

This model is in high demand - it is currently sold out on MrPorter.com 
It looks like it's got the best of Rick Owens and Y3's worlds, as far as aesthetics is concerned. What do you think?

Vetements X Reebok

With this collaboration happening between revolutionary brand Vetements, and Reebok, I have no doubt that the almost-forgotten brand (Reebok) will be gaining popularity again any time soon.


Not exactly a fan of the brand but I'm loving the hybrid concept that they have brought on board. Just take a look at the dress shoes below which is a marriage between leather dress shoes and sneakers. Pretty cool, don't you think?

Overall, they are designed to look much sportier, with a lot of rubber material and Velcro straps, and some interesting color choices too. This one below is pink in color. Any takers?

Alessandro Michele is a fashion genious, at least in my opinion. His designs are very soft yet strangely mesmerizing. Adorable animal themes, feminine cut, tasteful color choices, and clever ensemble of cute individual pieces prove to be his recipe for Gucci's latest success.

Donald Duck theme is ubiquitous on Gucci-wear this season. Don't you wish it's Donald Trump instead? (I bet you don't)
