Plum - Winter Issue Our new issue is out! We’d like to thank all of our contributors — this issue would have never been brought to fruition without the enthusiastic contribution of brave new youth voices! Please stay tuned for an important announcement over the course of next week! - Abigail & Fay
Nike has unveiled six new vibrant designs of the Air Max 1 Ultra, The City Collection. The shoe design itself has been seen before,although these knew colour combinations have been influences by the six distinctstyle capitals of the world – New York, Paris, London, Milan, Shanghai and
Tokyo. Interestingly though, there are only 3 different graphic designs,
inspired by the representative florals of each city, with two colour
combinations of each. Nike assures us that although the graphic designs are the
same for two different cities, the colour schemes of each allow each shoe to
stand alone – and they aren’t wrong.
NEW YORK / PARIS
This graphic is a floral combination of Roses (NY) and Lilies
New Yorks state flower is the Rose while Paris is often symbolised through the
Fleu-de-lis which is a stylised Lily.
New York is represented by an achromatic (black/white/grey) colour scheme which
Nike says is fitting of the modern city landscape and New York’s taste for
As an exact contrast to the New York colour theme, Paris has been given a pink
and blue pastel Rococo scheme. This blushing combination represents the
Parisian lifestyle by exuding muted floral tones.
TOKYO / LONDON
The Tokyo and London graphic consists of Roses and Cherry
Blossoms. Cherry Blossoms represent Tokyo as it is a common symbol in the Japanese
culture, and London is represented through the Rose, which may be indicative of
the Tudor rose, the traditional heraldic emblem of England.
Tokyo is represented through a monochromatic indigo scheme which could
represent the traditional Japanese dying method used since ancient times.
London is embodied through a red and purple scheme reflecting the Gothic architecture
throughout the city. I find it interesting though that in Gothic art history
red represented Christ while purple represented sin – and for that reason this
could be my favorite design.
MILAN / SHANGHAI
Plum Blossoms and Lilies are featured again in the last
design for Milan and Shanghai. The Lily traditionally serves as a religious flower
in Italy, and the Plum Blossom may be referring to the Plum Blossom festival
held in Shanghai each year.
Milan evokes the Italian Renaissance with a mustard bronze tone, also
surrounded by red and blue – other prominent colours from the renaissance.
Shanghai is inundated with red hues in a monochromatic scheme. This could be a
link to China’s role in colour technology through the renaissance, bringing the
first red pigments to the rest of the world in the form of Vermilion or Chinese
These designs will be released to the world on March 8, International Woman’s Day, so keep your eyes peeled.
It's not Adventure Time, it's… threeA × Pendleton Ward's "Bravest Warriors: Beth & Chris" collectible figures!
NEW POST: Joining the previously revealed “Plum the Merewif” collectible figure from threeA, it appears there will be at least two more officially licensed interpretations from Pendleton Ward's Bravest Warriors cartoon: Elizabeth “Beth” Tezuka & Christopher “Chris” Kirkman. It certainly seems logical that Wallow & Daniel “Danny” Vasquez will also be produced, so keep your eyes peeled for teasers of their 1/6th scale, 12-inch tall collectible figures! http://dlvr.it/8k2B0S
I love to see what other beauty bloggers have in their Muji Storage or just how they store their makeup in general. I am that person who can watch makeup collections on YouTube for hours. I don’t have a huge collection because I just don’t have the space to store it and I like to give products to friends & family that I don’t often use or that don’t work for me. So I thought over the next few…
