This past NYFW, I've been commission by Converse to find some cool people in Chucks around town, I've spotted them on the streets, at the shows, and even at the bar at the The Meatball Shop, here are some of my favorites.
Martin Keehn held its Spring Summer 2015 runway show the other night at Ludlow Studios in Lower East Side around the corner from his retail/creative space 27 1/2 Essex Street.
I had the pleasure of shooting this because of Converse and ended up with a bunch of behind-the-scenes images (see gallery below). One of the coolest things about the show was that there were art installation by some of Martin's favorite artist (see below for artists) works on display.
It was a full house that night for the Martin Keehn SS2015 show as guests waited patiently for the show to begin. It was a brilliant start to end even with a minor hiccup in music which resulted in no music as the models continued to walk the runway while the crowd cheered and clapped to show support look after look until it was resolved and til the last look.
The collection consists of refined casual goods meets sports-luxe take - the perforated leather tops are to die for as well as the sweat pants, mesh shorts and wide leg trousers. There's something for everyone in the collection which is awesome and the best thing yet is that the collection pairs really well with Converse Chucks, high or low, the choice is really up to you.
Take a peek at the gallery below:

Last night LEVI'S celebrated their Live in Levi's launch with live performances by Sleigh Bells and HAIM (set images to come) at Brooklyn Bridge Park. The Live in Levi's Project gives us a glimpse of how real people live, work and play in their own Levi's products from different cities - New York, London, Paris, Tokyo and Shanghai.
I prefer not to check-in luggages or bags at the airport, I've had bad experiences with getting things stolen, plus it's better to pack light and pack the essentials. I've taken the Tumi Lejeune Backpack/Tote and Tegra-Lite Continental Carry-on to Germany and Paris so far, it's been super smooth thanks to the four-wheel drive and light weight but hard shell on the carry-on roller. The backpack/tote can fit a lot too, I've managed to pack a few cameras, iPad mini, a day's change of clothes, dopp kit, cables, batteries, films, and books with room to spare. I will be taking this setup to LA for a week as well too, but throwing in a laptop and portable hard-drive. So far so good.
Thanks Tumi for the setup.
