Yes, you are seeing right. Lego has branched out into something amazing. They released a new series called LEGO Architecture. The first to be shown to the public was replicas of several houses from the world famous Frank Lloyd Wright, including the Guggenheim and Falling Water. Growing up with Lego's myself, I am happy to see them branching out into a more sophisticated and upscale series, meant for possibly a totally different market. I was beginning to get tired of the same old pirate, Star Wars, and Medieval themes...and I feel that those of us who did grow up with Legos will have a greater appreciation for this more mature theme.
As a part of a temporary exhibition at the Hong Kong museum of art, Louis Vuitton's "pour la creation" brings together art works from both American and Chinese artists. After recently watching a documentary on Marc Jacobs (the lead designer behind LV), I have become convinced that the brand really does have a passion for the arts. Would it stop me from buying a fake bag on the street? Not quite.
For the new release of the Air Yeezy's in New Zealand, Qubic collaborated with Nike to create a limited edition set of dri-fit shirts just for the occasion. Only 40 are being made. The shoe itself differs from the other releases due to its new khaki color and the strap, which lacks the stamped "Y"s that are usually present. I would love that shirt, mainly because out of all his lyrics..."where are you yeezy" seems to always stand out in my mind.
You saw it here first!
