Happy Canada Day!

Just wanted to wish Canada a very Happy Birthday!!! Happy 144th to be exact.

Hope everyone will have a great and fun long weekend - go out and enjoy the great summer weather! I, myself will be going camping with the family.

Don't forget to also celebrate the great country we live in! O' CANADA!!

I created this design about 2 years ago! It was entered into a t-shirt
design contest put out by retail store, Giant Tiger . And I won!!

Versace for H&M!

Have you heard? H&M's next designer collaboration will be Versace! Designed by its creative director Donatella Versace, the collection will include stuff for women, men and pieces for the home.

The womenswear collection will include of mostly dresses, featuring studded leather, silk and colourful print, with accessories including high heels and jewellery. There will be about 40 pieces in total.

The men's collection will focus on sharp tailoring, including "the perfect tuxedo", with accessories that includes belts and jewellery. There will be about 20 pieces.

And for the first time in a designer collaboration, there will be homeware pieces - cushions and bedspreads. (interesting....)

I can't wait to see the items that will be available for the men's! I'm hoping for some graphic t-shirts and sunglasses : )

Mark your calendar - the collection will be available in selected stores November 17, 2011. I just hope that it will be available in more locations this time around, unlike the Lavin collection, where only Yorkdale and Eaton Centre got it.

Donatella Versace actually wore one of the dress from the H&M collection
in one of her show recently.

FiveFingers Shoes

I'm sure you guys know by now, I love shoes. Especially unique looking ones. When I heard about these, it definitely got my attention.

They are called Vibram FiveFingers . Have you guys heard about them? I heard about them early this year,  and just had to track them down. I got my pair a couple months ago from Mountain Equipment Co-op.

I got myself the KOS style (Voted "Most Popular" for its versatility). Doesn't it look cool?! lol. Looks like gorilla/some kind of alien feet, right? That was my first impression of them.

KOS - the pair I got!

How the FiveFingers works? The design suppose to make your feet healthier by allowing them to move more naturally and freely. They were named by Time magazine's best invention in 2007. Read more about them here .

I have yet to wear them out. But having them on my feet, does feel a little odd - having all your toes separated. Will for sure need some time to get use to. However I have actually seen people wearing them! One time at the gym and another at the mall.

Check out some of their other styles. What do you guys think? Would you get a pair? : )

Rethink - No Tankers Oil Poster

Check out this very neat poster idea from Rethink. It is for the Dogwood Initiative's No Tankers project, which endeavours to keep oil tankers out of British Columbia's coastal waters.

Using a water-soluble ink, they created these "leaking" posters. Very cool - love it!

You can check out some other very creative work Rethink have done in the past for the No Tankers project here.
