This is an odd silly post, i know, but i couldn't resist. These Ben Sherman slip ons are super cheap ($40 on sale!)... and they were just so cute, they made me laugh when i saw them. They are Ben Sherman. They are black and white (with the ONE red ghosty). They are covered in Pacman Blinkies! (or is it Blinkys?). And some silly part of me half wants them. They are just too cute and silly. More pics below.

Prada. They've been grabbing my attention in every magazine lately with these illustration heavy images... (remember NotCouture #1478?) and while i'm still debating and mixed on the illustration on leather bag concept, i'm still loving the illustrations! So while checking out all of the Spring/Summer 08 collections and campaign, i couldn't help but share this incredible (HUGE like 17' x 200') wallpaper they have. Entitled Florid ~ Prada says it "represents the somewhat perverse intersection between Hieronymus Bosch and Aubrey Beardsley. The image depicts an intense landscape of man-eating flowers, dragons, hybrid creatures and eerie fairies." Above is one of my favorite sections of it... the full wallpaper, closeups, and images from the print campaign are after the jump!
UPDATE: Apologies for missing that this was the collaboration work of local LA artist James Jean, and that this wallpaper is hanging right in the Beverly Hills and Soho Epicenter stores sized at 17 x 200 feet! In my cold meds induced haze and excitement while being illustration/prada giddy, i'm terribly embarrassed for the slip up and really should know better than early morning posting! Forgive me? Also take a look at the second wallpaper on his site that isn't on Prada's.
Swims. First impression? Are these the tuxedos of crocs? Can i really go puddle jumping with these and protect my nice shoes (that aren't heels.)? Love the photography! and web design! (particularly the way you access the gallery with the little stack of images on the far right. And then from there, i actually started reading... The Swims story is an interesting one of Johan, who grew up in norway and never let go of the galoshes that his grandfather had passed down to him... and as he moved to paris and new york and even put in his time at Parson's he realized that there was a need to develop Swims, the "modern galoshes". Being a socal girl, i have never gotten quite caught up on the vocabulary of people with "real weather"... apparently Galoshes are "overshoes that slip over the wearer's indoor footwear but is made of waterproof material to protect the more delicate materials of the shoe as well as the wearer's foot from cold and damp".
Fun detail other than great packaging... the "ballerina" version for ladies leaves trees where you step... and see some of my favorite images from their catalog below as well as close ups. And i know these are one of the trend blog post subjects that are everywhere this week, but they were so cool and no one covered the great photography aspect, so i couldn't resist.
I'm a warm weather kind of girl. I'm not a rain kind of girl whatsoever. And for some reason i desperately want Welly Warmers and some adorably simple Hunter Wellies right now. I didn't even know Welly Warmers existed until about 5 minutes ago! So i blame Free People Blog for my new craving. Look how cute and cozy these look? More images below as well... Unfortunately Hunter's official site isn't quite ready yet, but these UK Boot folks seem pretty serious.
As for the exciting new release behind this contest ~ Aesop Rock has done a pretty sweet original composition for the Nike+Original Run Series (this is the 3rd, the first two being LCD Soundsystem and Crystal Method). Also if you haven't checked out the Nike+ site lately, go look, i'm impressed with how much they worked in new ways of motivation (beautiful design, great use of social and tech) ~ they have everything from widgets to track your progress, to special workout compilations like this one! (see below for the sweet cover art, and clips to listen)... anyhow, this seemed like a good enough reason to help get us all out and about and away from our screens more.
