Metallic Ink Printed Garments Remind TSA X-Ray Operator Of Your Rights

We totally understand the threat of terrorism when flying and because of this, we put our faith on the government to ensure a safe air travel. However, being humans, sometimes even government organisation can take things a little too far in the name of safety. Take for example, in the U.S.A, the Transportation Security Administration, or more famously known as TSA, is the authoritative figure to ensure our flight is free from terrorist-related dangers, but the search methods, like the full body scanner, is nothing short of controversial. It was with this in mind, designers Matt Ryan and Tim Geoghegan came with a line of clothing appropriately called 4th Amendment Wear.

$425 Mud-coated Jeans, Because You Shouldn’t Have To Work For Mud

Nordstrom is no stranger to expensive fashion, but as it seems, the fashion retail giant has a penchant for the weird and quirky products too. After trying to sell you a 85 bucks rock, Nordstrom again made headline and this time it’s for selling a pair of fake mud-coated jeans for a cool $425. What makes this so hilarious and a sure-fire headliner are the price tag and the mud. The controversial feature (if you can call it a feature at all) of the jeans, called Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans, is what Nordstrom described as “caked-on muddy coating” on top of the “heavily distressed” denim that supposedly embodies “rugged, Americana workwear that’s seen some hard-working action.” Continue reading $425 Mud-coated Jeans, Because You Shouldn’t Have To Work For Mud

Xiaomi ‘Intel Inside’ Smart Sneakers Rolled In $640K On Mi ‘Crowdfunding’

It is well known fact that China’s prominent maker of handset, Xiaomi, makes more than just handsets and tablets. Fitness tracking shoes is one of the many other things it makes. It is listed on the company’s website, but this pair you see here, called Xiaomi ‘Intel Inside’ Ultra Smart Running Shoes, is a tad different. But before we dig in more, there’s something that I think we need to clear the air first. On contrary to what other blogs perceived, this pair of smart sneakers is not called “90 minutes.” Yes. It does have what read like “90 minutes” in Chinese at the beginning of the product name, but it can also interpret as 90 points, as in a score, but anyways, that’s not the point.

CASIO’S NEW EDIFICE Timepieces Offer Accurate Time Thru Your Smartphone

Most traditional timepieces suffer from the same problem and that’s time accuracy. Some watchmakers get around this by designing watches that syncs with either GPS or atomic clock, both of which Casio has explored, but now the Japanese watchmaker has gotten smarter with its new EDIFICE timepieces, EQB501. Not because it uses Bluetooth SMART, but because that short range wireless connectivity module there, together with Casio’s Mobile Link Technology, allows the watch to connect to a smartphone at a push of a button.

Mariener Eyewear Beats Big Brands To Intro Matte Reflective Sunglasses

Matte reflective sunglasses (or shades, as some would call it) is a fad now, or at least, it is starting to gain some traction now. But like most new fads, these out-of-the-ordinary sunglasses are peddled by big brand names (or maybe just one, for now) and therefore, are not cheap. However, you do not have forego this up-and-coming fashion fad because of ridiculous stickers because there’s Mariener Eyewear. Mariener Eyewear’s existence, like so many startups, is spurred by the lack of cheaper alternatives and so, not surprisingly, the outfit’s line of matte reflective sunglasses is touted as the “first affordable matte reflective sunglasses.” Continue reading Mariener Eyewear Beats Big Brands To Intro Matte Reflective Sunglasses

Design Student Imagined Sneakers Of The Future To Be, Ermmm, Angular?

We talk and hear a lot about the future. Future of transportation, future of housing, future technology, but one thing we almost never talk about is future of fashion, specifically, kicks, and so it is kind of refreshing to pick up a piece that talked about the future of sneakers through a concept rendering. Originally conceived as an entry for the Pensole contest “Fusion of Footwear” by Mexico-based industrial and product design student David Olivares, this pair of sneakers of the future imagines an all-condition footwear that was a collaboration between two German brands: Adidas Y-3 and apparel label ACRONYM, to result in what the designer referred to as a “high fashion utility high-top sneaker,” a boot-high-top hybrid called Y-A FUYU HIGH.
