Alexander Wang for h&m: first look

Alexander-Wang-boxing-gloves-600x421

On Monday H&M decided to reveal the first image from the WANG x H&M collection on Twitter, showing a keychain with miniature boxing gloves.

Could this be an indication of a sports theme for the new line? Or is it just a detail without any particular link to the rest of the collection?

Eager to feast their eyes on the collection in stores a few months from now, fashion fans are already exchanging their theories on Twitter. To while away the hours before the launch, one could always think about what would go well with this little keychain…

The capsule collection of women’s and men’s pieces will be available in 250 H&M stores worldwide and online, from November 6, 2014.

Three extends free roaming to France and four other countries

3 mobile

Not content with offering free roaming to customers travelling in the US and other far-away locales, Three has extended its Feel At Home service to five countries a little closer to home. From July 1st, Three customers can enjoy data, text and calls at no extra charge when they visit France, Switzerland, Israel, Finland or Norway. That takes the operator’s total tally up to 16 countries and throws shade on rival roaming plans, which have come down in price but still require customers to add travel bolt-ons to their existing tariff. Calls to non-UK numbers will incur a charge but Three makes Feel At Home available to anyone on its network — perfect for uploading Instagram selfies from the beach or sharing Vines by the side of the pool.

Tom Ford to launch sneakers

Tom-Ford-sneakers-600x302

TOM FORD has created his first ever line of sneakers, which come in high and low-top versions and are set to arrive in stores in the fall.

There’s a choice of seven leather shades and five velvet colors, with all the models featuring rubber soles in white. Each shoe is handmade in Italy, produced with an artisan process that requires ten days of ‘resting’ for the leather while it’s shaped, as well as three days of hand polishing.

Prices range from $690 for the velvet low-tops up to to $990 for the leather high-tops and the shoes will hit Tom Ford’s American boutiques in New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas as well as the London and Milan stores in Europe.

You can currently browse the sneakers on the Tom Ford website, but you’ll have to wait until later in the year to buy them.

Bacardi Untameable Launch party

Bacardi_takeover

Last month Bacardi kindly invited us down to an event celebrating the launch of their new campaign entitled ‘Untameable.’

During a brief seminar we learned about the rich history and cultural significance Bacardi has in the cocktail world. Apparently the Bacardi family invented many of the Rum cocktails we know and love today, which we were able to sample unreservedly at the party.

The party theme was prohibition era Cuba, an obvious reference to the Booze fuelled holidays Americans took in Cuba during the prohibition of alcohol in the 1930s. Bacardi played a key role in promoting rum as a luxury drink and also pioneered the process of distillation which has been copied by many other brands.

There was cuban food, prohibition style Jazz, a DJ playing from behind a bunch of suitcases, gambling and of course every Bacardi cocktail you can possibly imagine.
