Vans x Hermes
This is definitely the most unexpected collab ever, or actually it is not really a collab! It is a collection of custom made Vans sneakers, and they are SO fresh! But it was not Vans and Hermes that came up with the idea of this sort of collaboration, it was NYC based celebrity stylist Robert Verdi that requested Vans to create a custom collection of Vans sneakers using his old Hermes scarfs, and this is the result.
When you think about it, it is the perfect collaboration, you put together Vans most famous product with Hermes most famous product, and there you go! Since it is not an official collab I’m pretty sure that this collection wont be for sale, but hey you never know so let’s keep hoping it will pop up in stores.
Jean Paul Gaultier for Piper Heidsieck Brut Cuvee
Jean Paul Gaultier is yet another French man who have made a career as a designer, with his own labels such as Gaultier PARIS, Couture collection, former JEAN’S Paul Gaultier, Eyewear Jean Paul Gaultier and Jean Paul Gaultier Argent. Last but not least, he has also made super popular perfumes since 1993.
Now though, it’s time for something totally different. A champagne! Gaultier and Piper Heidsieck have made a kick ass looking brut cuvée as well as a magnum bottle. The bottle is all black with a cool square pattern, as well as a masquerade mask on top of it! I LOVE this bottle! Though it feels a bit like the Absolut (vodka) Masquerade I still live it and if you would like to purchase this bottle, check this site out to find your closest dealer.
BMW 328 Hommage
The BMW 328 is widely considered one of the 25 greatest cars of the century, such so that the carmaker has produced a unique concept car to mark the 328′s 75th birthday. The BMW 328 Hommage is specially crafted to mimic the design of the original–an ultra-lightweight 1,720 lb. sports car utilizing carbon fiber-reinforced plastic.
The automobile was also one of the first in the line to incorporate kidney grilles upon the front and wide-set tail lamps in the rear. The sleek, doorless design and simplistic earth tone interior make for deconstructed elegance.
Although no official specifications have been announced, BMW casually mentions the inclusion of a 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine.’
