FENTY PUMA BY RIHANNA: THE FUR SLIDE


It's the one we have all been waiting for... PUMA's Creative Director Rihanna continues to build her PUMA BY RIHANNA collection with the newest footwear Introduction.

After months,but what genuinely feels like a lifetime, of anticipation, the luxe Fur Slides by FENTY have arrived.

I am fully heart-eyed over these and seeing a release date filled my life with those party popper emojis too! Rihanna has taken a fun and cosy spin to a classic PUMA sport style to create the Fur Slides, the third new footwear style under her FENTY label alongside the infamous PUMA Creeper and The Trainer.

Slides are my summer essential! But this slide is something else! The Fur Slide features a comfortable soft tooling and stylish faux fur strap with a smooth satin foam backing for an added touch of luxury. With a FENTY PUMA by Rihanna sign off executed on the heel and footbed, the Fur Slide by FENTY is available in three colourways: White, Black and Shell.

I'm not alone when I say I have been lusting over these since Rihanna was spotted pairing them with her staple off-duty relaxed wear. PUMA’s Creative Director designed these slides with comfort and style in mind, ticking all the right boxes for a Talk Casuals fav! The Fur Slide is great to rock with socks or without, and can take you from the pool to the city. I have absolutely no doubt I'll be wearing these for the entire summer and beyond!

LE COQ SPORTIF ECLAT 'TRANSLUCENT'


Le Coq Sportif have put an awesome twist on their iconic running silhouettes exclusively for the ladies this summer!

The Eclat 'Translucent' is exactly what it says on the tin! A fully see-through version of the Eclat trainer, featuring subtile glitter flecks! Dressed up or down, this pair of trainers is 100% the trainer of the summer, and a decisively new look for SS16!

We absolutely love these! Dropping in May at ASOS, the Eclat will also come with a pair of glitter socks, to finish the look perfectly!

VANS 'CHECKERBOARD' COLLECTION


Vans iconic Checkerboard motif is one of my absoloute favourites! With a release of the 'Checkerboard' collection, Vans celebrates its rich history featuring it on a range of footwear and accessories. 

Originally inspired by the creative spirit of Southern California’s youth culture and Vans grassroots design contests, Checkerboard is synonymous with Vans’ irreverent and unique style. 
 “Vans are a natural canvas and in the late ‘70s we started seeing Vans fans sketch all over their shoes,” recalls Vans Vice President of Events and son of the founder, Steve Van Doren. “Before we knew it, checkerboard was everywhere so we wanted to introduce our own version and make sure it was ‘Off The Wall’”
Decades later, Vans continues to release updates to the timeless pattern on a range of Vans products. From the new women’s Dazie-Hi, the Camper Hat and Checkerboard Backpack to legendary Vans silhouettes like the Sk8-Hi, Old Skool and Classic Slip-On, retro vibes take center stage on these styles staples conveying the perfect canvas for creativity. The extensive footwear offering highlights elementary tones reminiscent of the brand’s Southern California roots with colors like Spruce Yellow, Rhubarb Burgundy, Citadel Blue and Espresso Brown—painting a vibrant image of the Checkerboard history.

That Spruce yellow is such a gorgeous colour, I need a pair of these! Effortlessly cool, and embodying everything we love about VansThere is no doubt that the Checkerboard motif is going to be sticking around!

PUMA RELEASE BLAZE OF GLORY SOFT PACK


The Soft Pack is back right in time for Spring and they are as pretty as ever!

That buttery soft suede we absolutely adored in the R698 Soft Pack is back and on one of our favourite PUMA models. 

One of the brand most iconic styles, the Blaze of Glory has been given a cosy luxe treatment with the softest suede leather sitting atop a soft-as-a-cloud Trinomic sole unit. 

Available in those irresistible colours of bright blue, aqua, black, grey and light pink you do not want to miss these! As always, PUMA's attention to detail is second to none. Finished with nice subtle touches including a perforated upper and elastic fastening, this sneaker pack has been built style and the sports brand never let that compromise their comfort technology. 

I am so excited to see that delicate pink colourway again and I'm over the moon I have another opportunity to grab a pair of these! 

The PUMA Blaze of Glory Soft Pack is available in store from today retailing at £90! Dropping in size? and END clothing for men's sizes and size? and Pam Pam for us ladies, no one misses out on this release!

DAYDREAM SUPPLY CO. DROP 'CHEAP THRILLS' COLLECTION


Daydream Supply Co. just dropped their latest collection titled 'Cheap Thrills'. 

I've watched this brand go from strength to strength over the last couple of years and I think this my favourite drop yet. I love the colour palette and the simplicity of the designs. 

Unveiled in their latest Lookbook, the collection has been shot in Amsterdam with Dutch rapper Dusty. The Cheap Thrills collection features everything from t-shirts to dad hats and is available online now! 

My favourite pieces from the collection include the Devils Club tee in white with the bright pink print, a real spring feel to that one! I also really want to get the Devils Club Dad Hat in black! Less really is more and this collection is fully on point! I'm excited to see what these guys deliver next.

What are your thoughts? 


ASICS DROP 'APRIL SHOWERS' PACK


Another gorgeous Spring release, dropped this time by ASICS, titled 'April Showers' Pack. 

To celebrate the often less than dry Spring weather, the Gel-Lyte V has been given a fresh new look. The Gel-Lyte V has been produced in reverse colourways, to each other in Sunburst Orange and Mint Green, distinctive colours of spring and easter.

These are so clean and really do give me that fresh spring clean feeling. I think it's a really cool touch that this pack have reverse colourways, but that also makes it really difficult for me to pick a favourite! I'm usually a sucker for that minty green but the finish on that sunburst orange almost makes my mouth water! 

I always love the differences in textures on ASICS releases, whether thats visible in the detailing or physical in their use of materials. For this release, that speckled trim on the sole a really nice touch. It's not too much that it dominates the colourway, but its a subtle enough addition that actually compliments the trainer, and really helps the colour pop! 

Which colourway will you be copping? Or will you be getting both?! See more imagery below...
