Converse has partnered with irreverent and youth-centric LA streetwear brand, Midnight Studios to take on the creation of the Chuck Taylor All Star 70 and One Star silhouettes. Both sneakers are designed in an off-white colorway with contrasting black detailing, featuring an inside-out theme.
Shane Gonzales, the designer of Midnight Studios has established the brand since 2014 at age 19. He loves combining punk and youth street styles in an anti-aesthetic manner. Gonzales brings a DIY process to wardrobe staples, while drawing influence from Japanese design and minimalism instilled with the raw ideology of countercultures.
In that same spirit, Gonzales has turned the two iconic Converse sneakers inside out, revealing the seams, stripping them down to bare canvas and stamping the shoelaces with irreverent type and branding.
Standout details of high-top Chuck Taylor sneakers include dual-branded laces, the classic Converse logo on the inside of the sneaker while the sizing and care instructions sit on the outside.
This aesthetic continues on the One Star, with an embroidered star outline and custom laces being key features of the sneaker.
Converse x Midnight Studios will release on June 15 at Dover Street Market Singapore

Recreating the classic look and feel inherent within the Disney brand, the collection provides a minimal yet modern twist on two of Onitsuka Tiger’s most famous styles. The MEXICO 66 was released in March, with the sketch-inspired grid version set to be released in May.
Inspired by the evolution of Mickey Mouse through the years, the MEXICO 66 is The first to feature the legendary Onitsuka Tiger Stripes, the model was born in 1966 and debuted at the 1968 Games pre-trials in Mexico City. It has since become the brand’s iconic shoes from the lifestyle range. The shoes have stood the test of time 50 years on and have kept as close to the original style and structure as possible; including premium materials, legendary Onitsuka Tiger Stripes and design nods.
Striking a balance between classic and modern is key. The colour variations used mirror the style of Mickey & Minnie Mouse – black, white and red. Creative patterns and shapes synonymous with the Disney brand have been applied to each shoe in a different way, creating classy yet simplistic looks.
The MEXICO 66 will come in three designs. The first drop in March featured the recognisable hand of Mickey Mouse feature alongside the legendary Onitsuka Tiger stripes. The later design – set for May – will include nods to grid drawings, replicating the original sketching’s of Mickey Mouse himself.

In keeping with both the design principles of ASICS and Disney, the range is a celebration of class and simplicity – presenting Mickey and Minnie Mouse with the 90th-anniversary gift they deserve.

The Converse One Star continues to show up across global street culture, with celebrated sneaker boutique Sneakersnstuff creating a limited-edition capsule in collaboration with Converse.
Fueled by a desire to modernize the Camo print, a staple on the scene, Converse x SNS introduces a bold twist on ERDL, a print developed by US Army Engineer Research and Development Laboratory in the 60s.
The One Star take on the military print comes to life through texture and color.

The sneaker’s foxing tape features a military laundry tag and heel stay displays a debossed SNS logo. Additional features include goat leather lining, vintage cotton laces, co-branded sock liners, and the silhouette’s iconic star in Nappa leather.
“Camo has always played an important role in fashion and streetwear,” said Erik Fagerlind co-founder of Sneakersnstuff. “We wanted to elevate the print by stitching leather together in a slow, unnatural process. We do not believe in taking shortcuts. This is not fast fashion. The collection is thorough, genuine and displays a high level of craftsmanship.”
Originating in Stockholm circa 1999, Sneakersnstuff brings the latest sneakers to locals and has helped to define street-style through distinct product curation and collaborations ever since.

Deemed as one of the most iconic New Balance models, the 574 was first launched 30 years ago, in 1988. The 574 has endured the test of time and captured the hearts of enthusiasts as one of their favourite pair of New Balance sneakers. Its timeless design has allowed the 574 silhouette to remain relevant, cementing itself into the modern sneaker culture.
New Balance 574 ‘Classic Grey’
In 1982, during a time when neon tones and bright colours dominated the sneaker industry, New Balance took a bold direction with its latest running shoe and presented its high- performance offering in a clean grey suede colourway. Since then, the colour grey has held great significance in New Balance’s heritage. More than a hue, grey represents the fearlessly independent state of mind and has come to define the understated design philosophy that anchors New Balance footwear.
New Balance honours The Legacy of Grey with an exhibition that pays tribute to the brand’s heritage and spirit – Grey Day 15.03, and with the release of the 574 in three distinct grey styles – 574 ‘Original Grey’, 574 ‘1300JP’, and 574 ‘Classic Grey’.
New Balance 574 ‘Original Grey’
The 574 ‘Original Grey’ resembles the original colour palette of the New Balance 990 that transformed the industry when it was first released in 1982; while the 574 ‘1300JP’ takes inspiration from the legendary 1300JP in the grey/blue colourway. The limited edition 574 ‘Original Grey’ and the 574 ‘1300JP’ are available exclusively at Limited Edt and Leftfoot from today.
The third – the 574 ‘Classic Grey’ is a true embodiment of New Balance grey colourway that is synonymous with the brand since its inception. The 574 ‘Classic Grey’ is available at all New Balance Experience stores, and at Limited Edt, Leftfoot and AW Lab from today.

The exhibition highlights the brand’s independent spirit since its beginning and the enduring design of the 574 that have beaten trends and obsolescence to become a new form of timeless art expression.
In celebration of the transcendent nature of grey, New Balance invited four local independent artists, Kelly Limerick (kllylmrick), Koh Dawn (Ektory), Tell Your Children, and Streething to build a conversation between the brand’s emblematic ‘N’ and the colour grey in direct dialogue with their imaginative and ingenious art forms.
Unique collectibles such as The Grey Foliage by Koh Dawn, Crochet dolls by Kelly Limerick, and collaborative tee by Tell Your Children, will be available for pre-order on New Balance E-commerce store from today to 31 March.

Launched in 1974, One Star was put off a year later due to its relative underachievement. Straying from its origins as a shoe constructed for the basketball court, One Star re-emerged later as a favorite amongst the American grunge and skate scene.
Comparatively different from the popular Chuck Taylor All Star, the One Star sets a new benchmark in street style that doesn’t care about clichés, approvals or being celebrated.
It’s not about checking all the boxes or coloring within the lines. It is for celebrating the square peg in a round hole – the fearless and audacious youth who walks defiantly and are unafraid to be different.
In celebration of the latest Converse One Star Spring collection, Converse puts the spotlight on four anti-heroes – Jade Sparkle, Xavier Ong, Nathanael Ng and Germaine Cheong AKA XiaoMei who carry the spirit of individualism and fearless determination of living their dreams.
This season, Converse rolls out a number of unique iterations for those with the same spirit. For those who love soft-pastels, embrace the One Star Peached Canvas and Premium Suede for elevated comfort.
Or make a statement and do it your way with styles such as pinstripes, piping and molded stars where the retro look of the sneaker is reinterpreted.
The Converse One Star Spring 2018 Collection is available at all Converse Stores
Elaborately designed, expressive and vivid in color, Thomas Sabo’s Spring Summer collection will be focusing on the iconic design language of the Sterling Silver Collection with an unprecedentedOn March 6, 2018 / By Nookmag
Elaborately designed, expressive and vivid in color, Thomas Sabo’s Spring Summer collection will be focusing on the iconic design language of the Sterling Silver Collection with an unprecedented intensity of colour and an individual look. The range extends from artistic, tropically mythical motifs through to edgy wearable hinged hoops, as new style codes of the season. This creates a diverse collection whose contrasts combine to form a treasure of richly detailed jewellery items of 925 Sterling silver. 18k yellow gold plating is the new en-vogue precious metal of the season.
Filigree, handcrafted statement pendants enchant as a highlight. The parrot and the sunstone amulet sparkle with their vibrant colours, Aztec-inspired patterns and filigree decoration. In addition, long necklaces with swinging feathers as well as rings, earrings and bracelets impress in individual jewellery creations. The THOMAS SABO Snake fascinates for the first time as a ring, pendant, bangle or single earring in a green and turquoise look.
The Mediterranean attitude towards life is reflected in the Riviera Colours series. Its casual Boho style appears in filigree-classic bracelets, ear studs, necklaces and rings, in which turquoise-coloured, red and green stones casually coalesce. The long and short necklaces really come into their own in the en- vogue layer look.
To complement this fun-loving design, the starfish in the Ocean Stars series is experiencing a revival and, especially as a statement ring in an extraordinary starfish shape, becomes a truly maritime eye- catcher.
As an antithesis to the Avant-Garde series, the urban-inspired Classic Silver series inspires with its reduced minimalism. The clear style statements of the jewellery items are transformed by individual combinations into multifaceted creations and strong two-tone looks, whose geometric-graphic design codes stand for the new coolness. En-vogue jewellery for the ear is in focus. With hinged hoops with various pendants and sizes, wearers can give their creativity free rein and draw attention to the ear with their own creations.
The Rebel at heart line impresses with the Pyramid Studs series. Cross pendants and bangles with rock’n’roll rivet look will from now on supplement the expressive THOMAS SABO design language. Chokers and bracelets for which hand-cut, classic stones and Sterling silver are joined in an elaborate tying process become the basis of new, powerful looks with rebel attitude for her and him.
Triple Rings are the styling talents and secret tips for the new season. They are unique, multifunctional ring designs, which can be worn differently according to taste and always symbolise a bond.
Worn in a classic way, the rings decorate one finger and thus create an eye-catcher on the hand. The Triple Ring extends over two to three fingers as an absolute it-piece that draws all eyes to it. Whether with vibrant hot-pink-coloured stones and a romantic heart in the middle ring, or very simple with three rings of Sterling silver, partly with yellow and rose-gold plating – the rings always perfectly express your own style.
In Singapore, Triple Rings are only available in the ION ORCHARD store.
Thomas Sabo presents a new generation of timepieces. Women’s watches incorporate subtle Rock ‘n’ Roll elements: In a reflection of the new feminine power, the rivets on the bezel and crown break with convention, but without skimping on elegance. The specially developed stainless-steel bracelet in the elaborate pyramidal look sets the tone.
Rebel at heart Men timepieces are captivating with the balance of their shapes and proportions: With high-quality bracelets in stainless steel or vintage leather, the classic structure and the minimalist design in retro style harmonise with a wide variety of fashion styles.
Thomas Sabo’s Spring/Summer Collection 2018 is available now in all THOMAS SABO shops
