I know you have heard me say this many times before but Adidas has just launched another sweet collaboration with a great designer – Adidas by Tom Dixon Capsule collection for SS14 is sweet. If you don’t know Tom Dixon, you really should. He is a renowned British designer; working in the industrial design field not fashion.  But his debut collection, in partnership between the sportswear giant is a great start. The ‘Capsule‘ collection features a collection of multi-functional garments and accessories;  inspired by the idea of being able to survive a week on a trip with only one bag. All the items have multiple purposes and uses. Dixon was inspired by his real life circumstances – he was unable to find a hotel one night in Milan and had to sleep on a park bench. The real stars of the collection is the Navy Packable Tote and the Navy Packable Backpack.  What can I say, the buttery navy leather and copper hardware won me over. Although there is a pretty sick shirt, some great boots and a reversible jacket that is mint.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
