Velcro Sneaker Trend

There’s been a ton of sneaker trends this year, from platforms to sock-boot sneakers. One of the sneaker trends currently dominating the streetwear, fashion scene comes from the norm-core trend, falling under the dad shoes trend umbrella, the velcro sneaker. Velcro sneakers are what we all used to wear before we learned to tie our shoe laces, now brands are giving them a grown-up spin. The velcro sneaker could easily be called an ugly trend, but they make an outfit chic. The clean design combined with the bulky velcro allows the chicness of any outfit to shine. The key is to wear velcro sneakers without looking like a child, so pair them with a loose, wide-leg pant or a knit dress. For guys velcro sneakers with a suit pant or slack is a clean look, to give an overall rugged look pairing them with slim ripped jean is the way to go. Brands like adidas and Vans have taken some of their most iconic silhouettes and applied the velcro aesthetic to them. Taking the Stan Smith’s iconic clean design and adding a velcro system to them elevates the sought after shoe into the current trend, while Vans put the velcro on their Old Skool model, making it a quintessential skater shoe with the easy on and off system. The velcro updates are a nice taste of nostalgia. Rime locations has a variation of velcro sneakers.

Vetements Collaborates With DHL For Spring/Summer 2018

Since its debut, Vetements has become a streetwear star. Demna Gvasalia’s parody DHl tee became a stand out star and the brand’s call to fame. The designer continued to turn ordinary upside down, creating excitement out of simplicity and the mundane, like the “T-Shirt”  tee and the  ”Raincoat”  raincoat. But the original Vetements DHL tee was the defining, most sought after fashion piece last year. A major element of the brand is the collaborations, which they recently just announced a Tommy Hilfiger collaboration. Now the brand has went full circle with the DHL collaboration for spring/summer 2018. Taking to their INstagram, the brand announced the collaboration with a few images tagged VETEMENTSxDHLSS18.

Women Marching

Saturday women around the world, from Washington to Lisbon, marched in unity to voice their frustration. Joined by their peers, anyone with sense, they all marched to protest against the sexist and discriminatory tone of Trump’s election campaign. Not every feminist is white, middle class, cis-gendered and able-bodied. The marches were attended by men women, gay and straight, in all sizes and colors. In solidarity these women, people, humans marched on the first day of Trump’s presidency, united in their diversity. They came out in large numbers to resist what the new POTUS represents, the embarrassing facets of American culture, that it’s not okay to demean anyone that isn’t like you, and that that strongly included women. It was the largest inaugural protest in history, nearing around 3.3 million. Many irate at one of the most deplorable comments made by Trump about grabbing women, a comment that proved that Trump was a misogynist that takes what he wants. These women marched to  overcome the tradition of silence, letting women and the next generation know that they have the right to speak up for themselves, to stand against inequality and hatred for minorities. It was a march about change, about changing the world and solidarity with those fighting for freedom everywhere, for those who believe in human rights. Unity was the message. Unified they were, unified to protect fundamental rights, unified to stand up for women, unified for equal opportunities. They were unified to show that the President of the USA was elected after bragging about sexually assaulting women, and they weren’t okay with that. They were showing the world that they weren’t going to keep quiet on women’s issues. There was power in the numbers. They were marching to fight for progress and a future of inclusion and love instead of hate and nostalgic conservatism. But for sure no one felt alone, instead there was an energy of hope, anger, power and excitement that so many felt the same. Lets hope that no one forgets the energy that these marchers projected, that they, we, can do something, that they weren’t alone. And The similarities in the handmade signs showed that.
