COLOUR IS KEY – NEON

Group

‘Colour is key’ says luxury footwear brand Neon. “It’s all about bright, in your face colours at the moment” states head designer, Sarah Jayne-Newey, at Born in Britain luxury footwear brand NEON.  Throughout the recent shows in London, Paris and Milan pops of colour were seen, with a particular focus on yellows, blues and metallics.  With this in mind the team at NEON have created a range of bold trainers, designed to complement any outfit and add a high fashion flash of colour – and we’re in love!!!

The shows saw dazzling blue, yellow freesia and purple orchid hues dominate, and NEON footwear remains one step ahead with A/W 2014 collection showcasing Pool Blue, Candied Peel Yellow and Lipstick Purple designs in beautiful deerskin and fine grain leather skins.  With a fresh, young, approach NEON footwear not only screams fashion but feels luxurious as well.

Head designer and Managing Director at NEON, Sarah-Jayne Newey comments:

“From the start we always wanted NEON to be a high fashion footwear brand, dominated by bold colours and metallics as well as more neutral shades.  The shows earlier this year really demonstrated that bright colours are making a huge comeback throughout 2014 and 2015.  The deep blues and bold yellows are key trends for this year and we’re delighted that our Pool Blue and Candied Peel trainers will add a touch of this high fashion trend to any outfit.

“At NEON we pride ourselves on not only staying on-trend but creating the trends.  Our trainers are beautifully crafted, luxurious, born in Britain and high fashion – a fabulous combination.  The UK fashion industry is respected across the world and we are extremely proud to be part of this.”

NEON focuses on British craftsmanship and luxury of the highest standard with every element of its stylish trainers being produced and manufactured in the UK.  The trainers are designed with style-conscious women in mind; the entire shoe, including the wedge is a single block colour using the same sumptuous leathers and hides throughout.

MAJOR!!!

The initial release of the New Balance 574 Varsity pack was pretty major, those cobalt blue and bright orange sneaks, had us wanting to take it old skool and wear one on each foot! They’ve now dropped the red into the mix…sigh! A pop of red is a must both on the lips and on the feet. The 574 Varsity pack features a colour coded suede and mesh upper with monochrome accents and a grey and white midsole; they also come with options for the laces, red or white!

Know that these are being sported regularly to many an event/press day and have received a caboodle of compliments; time to start pounding the streets of London again after the brief break from the madness that is Fashion month.

This month, New Balance officially released their latest Elite Edition collection, the New Balance Barbershop Pack at Woodhouse Clothing. NB fans will know that the shoe packs are themed and this collection pays homage to the traditional barber shop. Three classic styles are available in the Barbershop Pack, the 1600, 580 and 999 available in blue, red and grey respectively heralding the universally recognised iconic barber shop poles.

Woodhouse Clothing, a premium menswear store in Notting Hill, which is also home to Carter & Bond barber shop was the perfect brick backdrop for the official release. The crowd had an array of bloggers, stylists, New Balance and Woodhouse customers along with a few well-known faces, including celebrity photographer, Richard Young and London rapper, Shadez The Misfit.

Guests were treated to, free shaves, gin cocktails, mini ‘man’ food and a DJ playing old-school hip-hop. They were also the first to get their hands on a pair of the eagerly anticipated Barbershop Pack shoes on the night.

NEW INNOVATIONS FOR THE NIKE AIR MAX 90

This Spring 2014, Nike celebrates the power of its innovation with the release of three new versions of the Air Max 90— the Nike Air Max Lunar 90, Air Max 90 Jacquard and Air Max 90 Ice.

One of the more popular silhouettes in the Air Max family, the Air Max 90ʼs iconic midsole and upper components are the perfect canvas to lionize Nikeʼs pinnacle technologies: Lunarlon foam, no-sew construction, jacquard weaving and Phylon.

AIR MAX LUNAR90

The Air Max Lunar90 combines two of Nikeʼs most popular cushioning systems, Lunarlon and Max Air, to offer lightweight comfort and responsive energy return. The upper receives a no-sew treatment increasing both the shoes flexibility and breathability. As a final touch, a compression-molded collar gives a nod to supreme comfort. The Air Max Lunar90 is Air Max felt like never before.

AIR MAX 90 JACQUARD

A traditional and age-old method of craft veneerʼs this version of the Air Max 90. Originating in the 1800s, the jacquard weaving process weaves four colored yarns through a black base allowing Nike designers to control which colors are expressed on the surface. The jacquard process is very detailed and capable of weaving patterns on top of patterns, allowing for the traditional panels and overlays of the Air Max 90 to be replaced by a single piece of fabric. The one-piece upper is lighter and more flexible than the original and pairs perfectly with a natural motion outsole for a visible emphasis on movement. The Air Max 90 Jacquard is Air Max crafted like never before.

AIR MAX 90 ICE

Harking back to the original mantra of Air Max, the Air Max 90 Ice pushes “making the invisible visible” to the maximum. Taking inspiration from the Ice edition of the Nike+ Fuelband, this version of the Air Max 90 utilizes a translucent outsole to show off the most unsung of cushioning heroes; Phylon. Translucence also appears on the upper in the form of see-through Hyperfuse construction, which allows the computer generated geometric graphic to appear without distraction. The Air Max 90 Ice is Air Max seen like never before.

The Nike Air Max Lunar90 and Jacquard are available now on www.nike.com. The Nike Air Max 90 Ice will be available later this month.
