Independently I adore the innovation Nike  and Stone Island bring to fashion and streetwear in particular. So one would assume that I’d be quite excited about the second instalment of their ongoing collaboration; that’d be a correct assessment to some extent.

I’m not completely sold that both companies are fully dedicated to this project. To me it doesn’t seem to bring anything new to the table. Is it anything more than a portable Nike Windrunner? I’m not convinced but one thing is for sure; this yellow jawn is FUEGO.

I spoke of how great Christian Lacroix was for still doing haute couture, whilst all other designer brands are concentrating on making money.

One of them being Christian Lacroix, even whilst making brilliant clothing like the dresses in my previous post, in it’s 22 years has never made a profit. It’s actually a tragedy in a way. The article is a great read by the way people.
