Adidas Consortium Stan Smith Collection

Last Friday I went down to the Launch of the Stan Smith Consortium Collection with the
Fresh Laces team and Drummer NathStar.

The cobbled street were over run with sneakerheads sipping on a bottles of beer and discussing the new releases.  The atmosphere was super cool, that even the rain could not succeed at dispersing the crowd. The limited edition store No.6 London was buzzing and DJ's Darq E Freaker and Lily Mercer supplied the tracks to keep the vibe Super Fresh.

There are four textured leather looks in the Adidas Consortium Stan Smith pack.
Reptile skin, cracked leather, textured ostrich and pebble phoenix.
All will be available from January 25th at No. 6 London, No. 42 Paris and No.74 Berlin.
My favourite leather look is the reptile skin, I love the twist on such a classic tennis shoe.

Overall a great launch party for a legendary tennis shoe.

I will leave you with this video...

No. 6 London

London WC1 7RO

No. 42 Paris
42 Rue de Sévigné

Breakfast at Tiffany's Opening Scene - HQ

I love watching Audrey Hepburn, in Breakfast at Tiffany's, so I thought I'd share a snippet with you so you can see some of the glamour, mischief and fun.

When creating the Contrast collection I spent hours researching films, photos and accessories from the 1950s and 1960s. I especially loved looking at icons such as Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, the costumes they wore in their films were a great source of inspiration for my jewellery designs.  The whole collection is made up of black gemstones and crystals and pearls.  They work so well together because it is a timeless coupling of ivory and black, it's like day and night.  The epitome of elegance and timeless beauty.

Thank you to everyone who has entered our #AUDREYCOMP on Twitter especially those who made such lovely comments!

Lovely prize for the competition Happy New Year
