The Spring 2016 updated version of the NMD is here and it’s looking pretty good! The style is in the name as the laces have been completely taken away and the foot is supported by an elasticated, knitted upper. Releasing in black and white, it’ll fit into the sneaker collection nicely.
The presentation of Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 collection and The Life of Pablo album completely took over Madison Square Gardens last night, but it being Kanye West would we expect anything less? Not many people have the ability to attract viewership of that scale and with his Kardashian / Jenner squad out in full force showing support, it’s clear to see why Kanye West believes and hopes he’ll be the next creative director for Hermes.
Everyone who is everyone attended the presentation including Anna Wintour, Olivier Rousteing, Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and even fellow artists in the music industry such as 50 Cent, Kid Cudi and Travis Scott also making an appearance.
All the models, when I say all I mean all couple hundred of them, were dressed in the expected neutral tones from the Yeezy collection. We’ll look forward to the following collections which he has promised will be more affordable.

The colours of the desert at dusk and night are the inspiration behind Desert Pack, a collaboration between Onitsuka Tiger, ASICS and sneaker boutique Offspring.
Two silhouettes bring together the best of sister brands Onitsuka Tiger and ASICS.
Onitsuka Tiger’s SHAW RUNNER is the cold and atmospheric night version of the Desert duo with its navy, white and tropical-green colour combination, and blue speckles on the white sole.
The Desert colourway of the ever-fresh GEL LYTE V tells the story of a sandy wilderness at dusk. Pink, beige and camel echo a post-sunset sky that reflects dark, mysterious shadows swallowed by the deep blue of twilight.
Eco-friendly French label Veja have teamed up with renowned English supermodel and Sky Rainforest Rescue Ambassador Lily Cole to launch a limited-edition sneaker collection to help preserve the rainforest. Known as ‘Taua’ the sneakers are available in three stand-out summer shades with each design featuring a flora and fauna pattern inspired by Lily’s trip to the Amazon in 2012. Made in Brazil, the sneakers are made from an organic cotton canvas and have a sole made from wild Amazonian rubber.
When asked in an interview why she chose this project, Cole stated “I love the world and believe we have a moral obligation – for ourselves, for each other, and for generations to come – to seek to protect it. The rainforest provides 20% of the oxygen we breathe, and deforestation contributes 15% of global carbon dioxide emissions… its protection is thus an imperative piece in our fight against global warming.”
Sky Rainforest Rescue is a partnership between Sky and WWF to help protect one billion trees in Brazil. For every pair of sneakers sold Sky will donate £10 to Sky rainforest Rescue and WWF.
These limited Veja X Sky Rainforest Rescue X Lily Cole are available at Offspring Selfridges London and online here

Amsterdam based jeans makers Denham have teamed up with Converse to produce 2 pairs of limited edition Jack Purcell’s. A historic trainer that dates back to the 1930’s, these cotton canvas classics started off on the badminton courts and slowly transcended to the city streets.
The Converse Jack Purcell x Denham sneaker’s classic canvas upper is the perfect textural complement to thoughtfully crafted denim. The clean white midsole is offset by a solid black toe, while the outsole is enhanced by an embossed leather Jack Purcell logo, inspired by the leather patches sewn onto the waistband of a pair of jeans. A contrasting top eyelet brings to mind a pocket rivet; the kind of detailing that draws in a more discerning eye. Denham’s own nod to the famed Jack Purcell toecap is seen on the heel, where their illustrative scissor logo is reconfigured to make the cutting shears “smile.”
The limited Converse Jack Purcell x Denham pack launches on April 11th and will only be available at the Offspring Selfridges London store.
