You know when relatives get Christmas presents that just get under your skin? Well, Hama beads were that present during this holiday season. Whether in my pockets, in my shoes, woven onto my laces, down my skinny jeans (don’t ask!) they were everywhere. The trick with this gift is that you make designs out of the beads and then iron them for a minute to get a solid design. When a young cousin made me a heart it all clicked- these Hama beads were a replica of the It-accessory of the moment as seen on Kanye West and Brandish. And they only cost £3.75 off Amazon and for that price who cares if the recommended customer age is 5?!

Check the pictures of some designs that I managed to snap over the holidays!

Newsflash: Kanye West Designs Trainers for Louis Vuitton

By Will Reid on January 6th, 2009

After months of rumours and hipster-praying, Hypebeast has confirmed the rumour that Kanye West is to design a pair of trainers for Louis Vuitton. The trainers appear rather bland (they’re just white high-tops,) but they might prove to be a valuable base for many a winter outift. Kanye tells the online fashion magazine that the trainers are to be released in June of this year.

I wait with bated breath!

WISHLIST: MR P T-Shirt by Tim Lahan

By Will Reid on September 17th, 2008

mrptshirt.jpgAs much as I hate label-whores and Louis Vuitton/Gucci-style designs that are made only for the monogram printed across them, I have to admit that my Sartorial ‘id,’ survives vicariously through Kanye West’s ‘Universecity’ blog.

Often, we catch (not very) subtle glimpses of candy-coloured designer goods but sometimes we’re treated to the odd indie-flash buy. Like this ‘Mr P’ t-shirt designed by Tim Lahan. It’s quirky, fun, lighthearted and a piece that you could wear with anything.

Not recommended for those with a fear of pigeons; if that includes you, then I apologise for exposing you to what must surely be like The Ring + The Grudge + The Shining (in pigeon-fearing terms.)

We’ve got a great pick of the blogs for you this week, Style Salvage Steve EJ is also thinking about quiffs, more specifically the Mozza kind who is his her current style inspiration.
Filep Motwary interviews emerging menswear designer Sotiris Georgiou, saying: “Do you understand what it means to me, seeing more people loving fashion in this depressing city I live in?” Come on Filep, Athens can’t be that bad can it? We are all looking at the hail and lightning outside the Shiny Towers window at the moment and wishing we were anywhere but London.
