I’m still kicking myself on missing out on the Comme des Garçons PLAY for Converse canvas Chuck Taylors so when I saw these images in my inbox I thought maybe this was my opportunity for a second chance. Converse has teamed up with Comme des Garçons PLAY again for to create four new styles of the iconic Converse Pro Leather sneaker.
The all-over Comme des Garçons PLAY print makes these a really fun pair of sneakers. While the Comme des Garçons PLAY Converse Chuck Taylors were very subtle, these scream “look at my feet!” You don’t need to worry about what you wear with them because no one will notice – everyone will just be checkin’ out your kicks.
All styles will be available on Dover Street Market’s website and at the Comme des Garçons NYC store starting May 28, in Paris and London starting June 1 and at Comme des Garçons stores in Tokyo and throughout Asia starting June 21 for a suggested retail price of $130-$140.
INSA is bringing back his ever-popular leggings in the Rainbow Life colorway. I love this colorway and would love to get a pair of these leggings to run in. If you’re not into leggings – or if you’re into the head-to-toe spandex look then you’re in luck because he’s also releasing Rainbow Life crop tops and leotards. You can wear lycra for days. No word yet on the release – just now it’s coming soon. Will keep you updated on Twitter about the drop date.

Sparkling Nuvo is teaming up with successful female entrepreneurs to create one of a kind events for their fan base. So when creating a nail bar, who best to join forces with other than jewelry designer and nails did aficionado Melody Ehsani? Nobody! *Keith Sweat voice*
We were beyond ecstatic when Nuvo extended an invitation to us. I mean, who doesn’t want to get pampered with cocktails, desserts, and free nail art? They created a two-day event for their LA crowd, one catered to celebrities and press and another for the fans. They also plan to bring the whole experience to NY this weekend.
Custom nail wraps specifically designed for the event. Melody Ehsani was inspired by the celestial feel the Nuvo bottles gave off. She then of course added her signature bold linework and diamond imagery reminiscent of her cage diamond series to the wraps.
We caught up with Melody Ehsani to view her newest release of nail wraps with brand NCLA and discuss her upcoming projects. Melody gave us the inside scoop about her cut and sew line to be released this coming Fall as well as welcoming the ladies of Kleur to their nail bar with Candypaint in the upcoming months. Stay tuned for details.
Many thanks to Nuvo and Melody Ehsani for the invite and the amazing gift. Can’t wait to dress my nails up again with these nail wraps and sport my custom ring!
