H&M for Brick Lane Bikes: A Men's Cycling Collection

What an interesting collaboration - I like it! H&M has teamed up with East London fixed-gear cycling specialty shop Brink Lane Bikes to create a line of rider-friendly menswear inspired by the urban cycling scene.

Designed by H&M and tested by Brink Lane Bikes, this only means that this capsule collection is both very functional gear and stylish streetwear.

I'm only an occasional rider. I do like to take the bike out during the summer time and I 'm looking forward to sporting some of these cool, great looking items. To be honest I will probably wear them in my everyday outfits : )

Eventhough the collection may be designed with bike enthusiasts in mind, I think every guy can enjoy it. It comes in great colours, and I love all the details. The technical details become part of the look of each piece.

One of my favourite piece is the rider jacket. It's made from water repellent and breathable material, with ventilation holes under the sleeves and taped seams. It's cut longer at the back, with the back pocket and straps inside the jacket so it can be worn as a backpack. Nice!

Check out the Look Book video below and see the collection in action along with the technical details. Lastly, the collection is made entirely from more sustainable materials as part of H&M Conscious work. Look out for this special collection, hitting  around 180 stores from March 7th, 2013.

I do have my predictions - let's see how many I'll get right : )

Best Picture - Argo
Best Actor - Daniel Day-Lewis for Lincoln
Best Actress - Jessica Chastain for Zero Dark Thirty
Best Supporting Actor - Christoph Waltz for Django Unchained
Best Supporting Actress - Anne Hathaway for Les Miserables
Best Director - Steven Spielberg for Lincoln

No matter who wins, I hope it will be a good show - I am very looking forward to see Seth MacFarlane, who will be hosting the event. Will you be watching?

Check out this very cool poster that was made as a tribute to all the Oscar winners. It was illustrated by graphic designer Olly Moss. Look closely, it features the best films in the form of the Oscar statue for the past 84 years.

Keith Haring X Reebok Classic - Spring 3013

Haring's iconic "Barking Dog" graphics

Check out this collaboration - Reebok Classics with Keith Haring Foundation. I'm a fan of Keith Haring's stuff and now his most recognizable artworks appears on footwear! They're so cool and fun! I love the colours! I want them - but apparently only less than 300 pairs available for each edition in the US. I really hope they will be available in Canada. Please let me know if you hear anything. Which style to you like? I'm loving the mismatched yellow and blue!
