First and foremost, I apologize if this turns into a World Cup blog temporarily. I will do my best to have some restraint from posting all things soccer.
That said, I love the World Cup and all the anticipation that comes with it. Besides the usual WC gear that comes around every four years, it’s the new and unexpected collections and collaborations that I enjoy the most. adidas’ Skate Copa presents a capsule of national decks for their team riders featuring classic and clean graphics. Do you have a favorite?
Even though I know both parties will move on and be just fine, I am still super bummed out about this.
Here it is, ladies and gents: my picks for the 2014 tournament. Who do you have taking it all the way?
Last time the CFDA paired up with the sporting world, we got this collaboration. Now Super Bowl XLVIII is the latest designer challenge with 48 helmets re-interpreted through fashionable eyes. Some designers on the list include Billy Reid, Blake Mykoskie for Toms, Cynthia Rowley, Dannijo, Public School, Rag & Bone, Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan for Donna Karan and DKNY, John Varvatos, Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier, Narciso Rodriguez, Nicole Miller, Olivier Theyskens, and Pamela Love.
I’m surprised by the lack of color so far. Couldn’t Narciso’s be easily added to an Oregon uniform? Bloomingdales will be showcasing all helmets starting next week as they go onto auction from 1/15-2/4. 100% of all proceeds will go to the NFL Foundation.
Get your bids ready.
To kick off a bachelorette weekend, the bride-to-be requested that we get the group together and do the Color Me Rad 5K. Such a fun idea! These type of fun runs that are popping up everywhere aren’t running events at all (not even timed!), so it’s fun to get everyone involved at all fitness levels. We ran the length of the course anyway, only slowing down to get covered in the color zones. If an event is happening in your town, grab some friends and check it out!
How gorgeous do these surfing beauties look at the ASP World Surfing Awards the other night? Roll call: Queen Bee Steph Gilmore, Sally Fitzgibbons, Monyca Byrne-Wickey, and Kelia Moniz. Monyca, your shoes kill me.
*Noted that Steph is Team Quik, but she’s probably moving to Roxy.
