Another Sneaker Review and it’s a pair of Nike Air Max again. These are the Nike Air Max 90’s: a staple silhouette for Nike. Nike used a visible air unit on the Air Max 1’s for the first time. Just after 3 years of launching the Air Max 1’s in 1987, the Airmax III’s were launched, named as they were the third shoe in the Air Max Line. These were known as Air Max III’s until 2000 from which date they started to be known as Air Max 90’s. Both these silhouettes were designed by the genius architect Tinker Hatfield. The whole idea of using the air cushioning unit revolutionized fashion and technology. And yeah, it could be seen too! Today I am going to talk
about the Air Max 90 LX shoes in Particle Rose, that have been launched in March 2018.
What is the key to any clothing? The silhouette? The appearance? Or is it the comfort factor associated with it? When we talk about fashion, it always moves forward and now we are in an era of forward-thinking clothes. Clothes that not only serve at being ‘LOOKING GOOD’ but also such that it is functional enough to be worn irrespective of the weather. Techwear is clothing for everyday life with special fabric, construction, and properties that allow for breathability, movement, water-resistance, and comfort. These are my second pair of Techwear pants from INDIA’s very first TECHWEAR BRAND: GARUDA( First were the pair of GARUDA C8/M1 UDAAN PANTS which I wore at SNEAKER PIMPS World Tour 2018: PUNE ) and they not only look fly but also entails me to flex in them all weather.
I was so excited about it. My very first ‘Amazon India Fashion Week’. I planned all my outfits almost 2 months in advance. I even ordered a couple of accessories from Arunachal Pradesh. The whole idea of being in the Fashion Game makes me wonder why are we even having second thoughts about being a part of an event as big as this. I believe, for somebody like me, who is even remotely associated to the Fashion Game, it’s the only platform in India, where you get to see the upcoming trends, the trends of the next season. Also, it’s the place where you get to meet so many of your favorite designers who inspire you and whose work you really like. Amazon India Fashion Week Spring Summer ’18, that’s what I am talking about.
She kept telling me again and again. My dearest friend Krati. “The ‘Rajasthani Dance’ that takes place every day in the late evenings in Udaipur, is not to be missed”. I think it is since my first job days( 2012) that I have been wanting to visit Udaipur. We used to have office transport and one of my colleagues with whom I used to take the transport hailed from Udaipur. He would always talk about the place and show me pictures of the place, food and his beautiful sisters wearing bright lehengas for family gatherings. I would fall in love with the place more and more. I have this affinity towards colors. I love colors. Although I don’t wear them much. And the culture always appealed to me as it seemed way different from mine. Udaipur had been on my bucket list for a long time and since I was anyway traveling to Delhi, I thought of doing a short stopover at the beautiful city of Udaipur.
Now, when you spot Yassine Saidi, the head of PUMA SELECT, THE MAN behind all those crazy collaborations, taking your pictures, you gotta be on cloud 9! This doesn’t happen always, you see. Then there were people like DJ Neil Armstrong and Peter Fahey himself, the man behind Sneaker Pimps, who complimented me. That day was definitely my lucky day.
Well, it is a too- cliché tourist destination and I know I always make it a point to NOT BE CLICHÉ. To be honest, I feel like laughing my guts out while I write this sentence. Also, most of the people would totally dismiss it as the ideal tourist destination during winters, I mean, you would want to backpack to some place cold and hold the snow in your hands and make a snowman maybe! In fact, my trip was planned just a few days- probably 20- 25 days ahead of it. I backpacked to Thailand with two pairs of shoes and 4 pairs of clothes (for a span of 10 days) and covered the cities- Bangkok, Phuket, Krabi and Pattaya. But I am glad I went ahead with the trip despite being rather fickle- minded about a NOT- TOO- WELL- PLANNED international trip. Although the pictures that I have taken through my phone are nothing compared to the beauty that I have encountered, I hope you would find this post useful for your travel to Thailand.
It was still fresh in my mind. The RADIO THAT CHANGED LIVES. And also, the documentaries on Street Culture that I have watched with my Bangalore folks. It is not from where you start, it is about how you keep at it, your passion you know! How you try to establish your identity. Now that this is one of the major issues I see prevailing in our society. Identity Crisis. A world that is moving so fast, a platform is definitely required such that like minded people can come together and exchange their views and ideas. The documentary sessions that we have in Bangalore is one such platform. Think how exciting Sole DXB was, with thousands of people with similar interests and zeal. The liberating feeling of meeting the icons I have only seen inside my laptop or the television, for example, the duo of hiphop radio who changed the lives and launched the careers of many unsigned artists, only to become hiphop legends in the days to come!
It isn’t long that I wrote the article ‘In the shoes of a blogger’. You can see and tell how gruesome the life of a blogger is. Surrounded by negative energy of haters and competitive counterparts, the life of a blogger is pretty mechanical which starts and ends with ‘HOW A BRAND WANTS YOU TO WORK’. I also mentioned how it’s all about the MUTUALISM and that originality and genuineness is going for a toss, well, mostly. Almost everybody is in the tryst of making it big without actually working hard for it.
This post is basically the PART II of the previous blog on AIFW and as I already mentioned, yes, I too planned my fits for AIFW. Going by what a premiere event it is, I really wanted to make my travel worth, I have been wanting and waiting to attend this event for quite sometime. All my fits were rather simple and no, I wasn’t being shot for the street style spotted of the various magazines at the AIFW. Well, didn’t I tell you that one has to dress up in a lot weird way to get shot? If not, then he has to be creative in a good way. But all I wanted was to look cool without losing my style and identity. That’s why I went for plain looks with just a couple of DIYs.
Recently, I figured out something new about myself. I realized that unknowingly, I collect sunsets. This might be due to the fact that waking up to a beautiful sunrise and grabbing the morning cup of green tea isn’t practical anymore. I also realized that I always try to reach office as early as possible although my timings are flexible and I can afford to wake up late- unknowingly though, I like to reach home early so as to enjoy the setting sun with my little pooch! But due to heightened traffic conditions these days, I only get to see the warm colors of the setting sun while I am in the cab on my way back home. Why is it that our eyes get glued to the radiating hues of the sunset and we get transported to an enchanted universe?
