Fresh off of their Versace for H&M Collection, the Swedish fast fashion retailer H&M announces a new collaboration for Spring 2012 with Italian brand Marni.
“Marni’s collection for H&M has all the freedom and experimentation for which the label is renowned, with all-over prints in strong colours all intended to be worn together in layers that both match and clash. For women, the colours are vivid and the prints are bold, be they African inspired or simpler colour blocks. The silhouettes are all Marni staples, with full pleated skirts, dresses, cropped trousers and jacquard knit, and fabrics range from silk to crisp cotton poplin. To finish the complete look the collection also includes jewellery, shoes, bags and scarves.
For men, the colours and fabrics are softened for a relaxed take on menswear staples that is truly Marni. The use of print is subtle, often as a lining or as a contrast detail for shirts, the silhouette a modern and relaxed take on masculine classics. The Marni collection is the latest designer collaboration for H&M, which has previously collaborated with brands such as Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Comme des Garçons, Jimmy Choo, Lanvin, and most recently Versace.”
Brooklyn-based painter José Parlá uses the Converse All-Star silhouette as his canvas for a worthy cause. This piece is for World AIDS Day as it merges fashion and art.
Using the Chuck Taylor All Star shoe as a canvas, Parlá chose his painting “Ephemeral Pitches, and Notes, Rhythm and Phonetics” to grace the shoe’s upper. A striking work, the painting explores constant changes to urban lifestyle and was inspired by abstract noises, music, rhythms, languages and sounds of cities. Selected by Parlá in recognition of the change that is part of the mission of (RED), the painting’s themes also represent a nod to Parlá’s days of youth wearing Chuck Taylor All Star shoes to play basketball, dance and have fun.
Only 500 of the José Parlá for Converse (PRODUCT)RED Chuck Taylor All Star shoes will be available, beginning on World AIDS Day – December 1, 2011 at Converse First String retailers globally.

Brabus has unveiled their new customized SLS AMG Roadster for Mercedes. Everything gets an overhaul including the paint job, upper materials, interior design, wheels and engine.
“A complete carbon fiber aerodynamic kit, offered in either high-gloss or matte finish, a body kit that includes a front spoiler, freshly designed air vents for the front fenders, side skirts, rear spoiler, side air vents for the rear fascia and a diffuser with integrated quad-exhaust are just the start of the updates Brabus made to the Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster.
For the wheels, Brabus fitted the Roadster with their own Monoblock F “Platinum Edition” forged wheels, which are available in several finishes, 20-inch in the front and 21-inch in the rear.
The Brabus Ride Control suspension system allows the car to be lowered by up to 40 mm (1.6 inches) with the touch of a button. The Brabus SLS AMG Roadster also offers a Front Lift System which raises the front axle of the roadster 50 mm (2 inches) in order to avoid bottoming out on curbs, speed bumps and other obstacles. At a second touch of a button, the suspension will revert back or will do so automatically once the car hits 30 km/h (19 mph).
Brabus did not forget to include a plethora of power upgrades to the SLS AMG Roadster. Upgrades include a titanium sport exhaust system with quad pipes measuring 84 mm in diameter as well as an engine tuning package that raises output on the 6.3 liter V8 from the already impressive 571 PS (420 kW / 563 hp) to 611 PS (448 kW / 600 hp).”
