Giuseppe Zanotti Gold Double Bracelet White Crocodile Hi-Top Sneakers

25th April 2013
Multi-talented designer Giuseppe Zanotti has created a unique visionary sneaker that has pushed the limits of contemporary shoe design. The current Giuseppe Zanotti Spring Summer 2013 Men’s Collection offers a variety of distinctive Giuseppe Zanotti signature creations – highlighting single and double metal bracelet accents. There is one particular men’s sneaker from this season that has caught my attention.
This Giuseppe Zanotti Double Gold-Coloured Metal-Bracelet High-Top Sneaker is a real eye-catcher in it’s class. After owning my first pair of Giuseppe Zanotti’s, the brand has constitute my confidence to acquire a second pair. The gold metal bracelet on white croc is one alluring high-top – it’s genetic architecture has a seamless transition, bond together with chrome hardware and zippers that meant to looked like an extremely futuristic footwear proposition. Despite true beauty that lies in the beholder’s eyes, the definitive composition for this pair of white and gold croc sneakers fall short as the vamp is made out of a distinctive leather embossed crocodile pattern, which was created to regard as perhaps a genuine interpretation.
Rumour has it that Kanye West and Giuseppe Zanotti may have collaborated on this pair of sneakers, but there isn’t sufficient evidence available to confirm this alleged collaboration that was started by Ibn Jasper – Kanye West’s long-term personal barber and style-consultant.

Popularity: 4/5, Reference: 1130944BK65, Color: Black, Material: Leather, Collection: Spring/Summer 2013
They say the best things in life are free, but in Christian Louboutin’s World nothing is free except redemption of pure sight starring at a pair of dazzling Ironito flats brings pleasure to ones eyes. Arguably the similarity of its concept sits between it’s elder sibling the ‘Dandy Pik Pik’ and the lower end metal cap toe ‘Henri Flat’ – despite carrying a price tag 40% much more than the full-on spiked-out version. This is one serious extravagant pair of Louboutins.

Christian Louboutin Tyronito Flat Black Leather – $1,675. Brother to our “Ironito,” “Tyronito” is a laced-up loafer with some serious attitude. This newcomer is a must-have for the Loubie-collecting, modern gentleman who really wants to spike his wardrobe.
Popularity: 3/5, Reference: 1130987BK58, Color: Black, Material: Leather, Collection: Spring/Summer 2013
If I could think about a shoe that resembles a deep sea creature, this latest pair of ‘Tyronito’ will be the one. To be more specific it looks like a Anglerfish in ‘Finding Nemo’, don’t you agree? Gauging its overall design, the cap toe pik pik contradicts sharp fangs along its accustomed body. Love it or hate it, no shoe could ever be so cruel looking. In other words, i’d buy one now if I could.
Christian Louboutin Yacht Spikes Flat Saphir Blue – £655. Fashionable comfort is definitely a rarity but Louboutin has achieved the impossible with what we call “Yacht Spikes.” Offered in bleu saphir with the classic silver spikes, she is a lace-less rubber soled softy.
Popularity: – 2/5, Reference: 11309203183, Color: BLEU SAPHIR/SILVER, Material: Calf,  Collection: Spring/Summer 2013
A wave of fashionable slip-on boat shoes with studded tops has been a recent trend, see Saint Laurent. Christian Louboutin for Spring Summer 2013 men presents a lively Saphir Blue leather boat shoe with signature spikes and eyelids decorated in a random manner, the Yatch Spikes is a new series added into their ever growing collection.
Christian Louboutin Rollerboy Spikes Flat Suede Stone – £845. “Rollerboy” is so aggressive that it has been seen by some as a threat to national security. Be a step above the rest in this more subtle monotone stone suede version of our classic spiked loafer.
Popularity: 3/5, Reference: 11201533112, Color: STONE/STONE, Material: Suede, Collection: Classic
For the pure Louboutin Rollerboy’s enthusiast, the one that needs more than a dozen pairs to collect in the same design but different colours, you know who you are. This is your call, the material in made out of suede along with a white stone colour which makes these pair of Loubies an extremely delicate and prone to damage by almost every outdoor environment  Please do not take these as your first Louboutins, they will get ruin the moment it rains. But nevertheless it is an outstanding combination for the red carpets.
Christian Louboutin Dandy Pik Pik Flat Specchio Laminato Silver – £1,145. If you fell for “Rolling” watch your step this SS13, “Dandy Pik Pik” will surely catch you. Covered in angular spikes, and Metallic leather the “Dandy” has never been more biker chic.
Popularity: 4/5, Reference: 1130924SV71, Color: SILVER/SILVER, Material: Specchio/Laminato, Collection: Classic
Probably the ultimate most-fancy pair of shoes you can buy today. I could not think about anything else as ostentatious, or comparable with these unless they are ‘Strass’? Then again, this is a very pretty pair of Louboutins, I like to think it as the big brother of ‘Rollerboy Spikes’. Specchio Laminato, or Laminated Mirror in English is it’s description with signature ‘Pik Pik’ silver studs – various types of Spikes. Pity that the outsole is left in natural finish, should have been silver Specchio Laminato instead.
Christian Louboutin Dandy Pik Pik Flat Patent Black – £1,145. If you fell for “Rolling” watch your step this SS13, “Dandy Pik Pik” will surely catch you. Covered in angular spikes, and patent leather the “Dandy” has never been more biker chic.
Popularity: 5/5, Reference: 1130923CM53, Color: BLACK/BLACK, Material: Patent, Collection: Classic
Same as the Christian Louboutin Dandy Pik Pik Specchio Laminator in a much more practical and subtle colour. Any lucky buyer who currently owns this pair gains the ultimate value for money. I am predicting that this pair of shoes will have a very good residual even after a few wears. However they are out of stock in an instant, if you are desperate for one, do consider the above pair as they share similar charisma.

Christian Louboutin Louis Pik Pik Flat Black Gun Metal – £925. If shoes could be deadly “Pik Pik” would kill. Made in very limited production, any sneaker collector would be lucky to have this black with gunmetal spikes version in their wardrobe.

Popularity: 5/5, Reference: 1111173BK58, Color: Black/Gun, Material: Leather, Collection: Classic
Shadows a low profile look with catchy spikes detailing, not quite flashy as one thought so. This punk style mid-top all black sneaker with various gun metal studs throughout surface is quite particular. Every time I see these, the colour combination sort of resembles ‘Jeffrey Campbell’, which kind of sucks because they make the most hideous shoes. But I know some people out there will kill to get a pair of these babies – just my personal opinion.
Christian Louboutin No Limit Flat Python Strass Spikes Multicolour – £1,295. Monsieur Louboutin again proves that there is no limit to the extravagance, detail, and artistry that can be displayed through the design of just one shoe. From the front he is spiked out, his strass colorfully shimmers on one side, and an evil eye is framed by yellow pony on the inside to ward off the jealous and evil spirits that may try to rip them off your feet.

Popularity: 4/5, Reference: 1130538CM09, Color: MULTICOLOR, Matef25rial: Python , Collection: Classic
Like nothing else in this world, the ‘No Limit’ concept sneakers takes a primitive directional approach. This time a taboo inspired theme unlike it’s previous grace – fitted with a rear cork and a leopard print stone-age design. This one goes beyond the wild, like a poisonous snake, lurking to be notice among the average street sneakers.
Christian Louboutin Louis Strass Flat Multicolour – $2,595. This candy colored version of the infamous “Louis Strass” is polished with hand placed multicolored swarovski crystals and finished in neon pony hair. Lace into this super luxe sneaker and you’ll be dressed to impress no matter what the rest of your ensemble entails.
Popularity: 5/5, Reference: 1130913CMA3, Color: Multicolor, Material: Strass, Collection: Classic
Candy Crush Bejeweled Christian Louboutin Men Flats, this pair of multicolored strass-out cotton-candy shoes has a sweet tooth. Like it’s tasteful sibling above, it ostentatious concept attracts the same amount of attention, impressing streets sneaker fans unlike anything. But this pair of Louis Strass somehow gets the feminine flamboyant side of every men.

Givenchy Green Spitfire Fighter Jet Print Columbian-Fit T-Shirt Pre-Spring 2013

12th April 2013
It has been some time since I last purchased a Givenchy Columbian Fit T-Shirt. My previous oversized acquisition was the wanted Givenchy Shark & Mermaid Print T-Shirt. That particular tee has gone through almost over 8 months of ownership and I appreciate every moment wearing it.

Givenchy’s Columbian Fit T-Shirt is like marmite, you either love it or hate it. My first impression dressing an oversize tee was very negative. To tell you the truth, it took me 4 months till the day I had accepted to take out my first purchased Givenchy Birds of Paradise Columbian Fit T-Shirt. Reason being that I looked ridiculious, wearing a t-shirt that is 3 times bigger than my fit makes me think how unfavourably tailor-made it was and also because my first Givenchy purchased was a regular fit Rottweiler T-Shirt, it made a lot of difference. But after a while, the comprehension of oversize designs grew in me. I have learned that there is not just acceptance of the imperfect nature, or possibly the perfect nature, depending on how one looks at it.

This week I celebrate my 4th Givenchy Columbian Fit T-Shirt acquisition, it took me quite a while to decide where my money should go, or should it have been saved at the bank? LOL. I had a dilemma between comparing the Givenchy Fighter Jet Print T-Shirt against current season’s Givenchy Madonna collection. It wasn’t an easy choice, but I followed my instinct and after observing how the Givenchy Madonna collection perform in the market earlier last month, I have decided to select the Fighter Jet pre-collection due to its rarity and popularity that outweighs Madonna.
No one can realistically argue which designs are far better because I always believe that everyone shares different taste, the public opinion on the Madonna collection on the other  hand is not as well received as I thought so due to its eccentric theme. I loved the Fighter Jet T-Shirt since the day Givenchy Pre-Spring 2013 lookbook was released during end of May 2012. If you want a Givenchy print oversized t-shirt that is not easily counterfeit, then this is the one. By looking at the amount of digital design Tisci has dedicated, the printing process of such a grand-complication t-shirt is pretty tricky to manufacture.
