Star Wars for Adidas Range

This weekend I've been checking out the new Adidas Star Wars range at the Adidas shop in the basement of Size in Leeds, after a friend told me about the range earlier in the week. The trainers are absolutely amazing, and despite not being a Star Wars fan at all, I love pretty much every piece from the collection!

And I absolutely love the fact that the trainers come packaged like the collectable figures!

I have no idea why I love this image so much.
What is it that makes us attracted to an outfit, to a photograph, to a specific garment? Why are some things more aesthetically appealing than others?
I think too much revision of the golden ratio & Fibonacci series last week has sparked some kind of debate about aesthetic appeal in my mind..

Behind The Scenes Burberry. The Spring/Summer 2010 One of the best advertising campaigns I've seen in a while, and probably my favourite from Burberry. It's certainly made me consider applying for a placement in their advertising department! Also, I absolutely LOVE Emma Watson, and she fits the brand perfectly (as does her little brother too, apparently!)

The last picture is my absolute favourite!

Icicle Icicle

I arrived back at my house today to find some crazily deep snow..and some amazing icicles! I've never seen real icicles like this before in England. I think they're fascinating, such pretty things to be created just from frozen water.

Ann Demeulemeester - Spring/Summer 1998 'Holy' Collection.

I love the womenswear for this collection, especially the fact her arm is actually labelled 'right arm'.

American Life

Researching into some West Coast positioned internships this week reminded me of my road trip around California a few years ago. We started in Nevada and did a night in Vegas; possibly the most surreal night of my life..our hotel had a rollercoaster in it. We then went down to Arizona to see the Grand Canyon, and then into California to do Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Carmel, Redondo Bay, Hollywood, LA & Anaheim. Amazing scenery, beautiful sunshine and some great photo opportunities.

On the last day of our trip we visited Redondo Bay, where some of the OC was filmed. We saw the Bait Shop, the pier and the café!
