The set is only available in black and pale pink, which looks more like a white, finished with Calvin Klein’s logo on the white bands. Unfortunately it’s an Urban Outfitters exclusive, so you can only find it there! What do you think? If you want to get them, do it soon, because they’re expected to sell out quickly!
Acclaimed photographer Michal Pudelka has created a unique series of images for the ERDEM x H&M print campaign, playing with the idea of family portraits. The evocative images were taken during the shooting of Baz Luhrmann’s short film for the collaboration where super models joined the actors in a series of group shots, adding an extra dimension to the ERDEM x H&M world.
“We thought it would be great to do a modern take on classical family portraits, creating characters in ERDEMS’s world. The ERDEM x H&M collection really spoke to me, and the working process felt authentic and creatively charged,” says Michal Pudelka. The campaign stars super models Saskia de Brauw, Imaan Hammam, Grace Hertzel, Fernando Cabral, Neels Visser and Tony Ward. They are joined by actors Ruby Dagnall, Tom Rhys Harries, Hero Fiennes Tiffin and Harriet Walter.

As part of its long-standing collaboration with environmental initiative Parley for the Oceans, Adidas has updated one of its classic shoes from the 90s and made it eco-friendly. The initiative aims to stop plastic that’s entering the ocean, and retrieves waste from beaches and coastal communities in the Maldives. The waste products are then turned into yarn and get knitted to construct the shoe’s upper. The updated sneaker which was first designed in the 90s, now features a two-tone upper, which has been knitted from yarns made out of up-cycled plastic, creating a wave-patterned stitching and it’s available in two color combinations: dark navy & blue, and white & turquoise. Its molded heel counter is made from recycled plastic, while the outsole is made from recycled rubber. The Parley EQT is the latest in a series of products to come out of the longstanding collaboration between Adidas and Parley for the Oceans. The first Parley Ocean Plastic trainers were presented during an event at the United Nations headquarters in New York in July 2015, when the shoe was still a prototype. The Parley EQT Support Adv sneaker costs $160 and it is available online, here.
