Although inspiration for the Buscemi 100mm silhouette stems from female handbags, it has never been offered as a female-directed shoe until now, with the introduction of the 100mm Alta model. Setting this particular sneaker apart from the original 100mm shoe is the concealed wedge heel, while the rest of the exterior aesthetics feature the signature swathes of full-grain leather on the uppers, which are then complemented by soles in matching palettes. Finishing touches include luxorious gold hardware touches on the top and gold Buscemi branding along the eyestays. The Buscemi 100mm Alta sneakers come in either white, black or red, and are available from the brand’s online store for $865 USD.
Marcelo Burlon looks towards the raw nature of dirt biking and motorcycle culture for his 2015 spring/summer collection. This time, the label takes a slight step away from its signature use of vivid prints of animal motifs, incorporating more contemporary designs such as 3D effects and obscure symbolism. The range includes the familiar offerings of sweaters, long-sleeves and tees but we are also treated to avant-garde pieces like shawls and capes which are paired with shorts for an interesting aesthetic. Enjoy the images and keep an eye out for the Marcelo Burlon 2015 spring/summer collection at select stockists in the coming months.
Undefeated x maharishi x adidas Originals Consortium Jabber Hi silhouette, we now bring you a first look at the collection’s other half: the ZX 5000. Similarly the Jabber Hi, the ZX 5000 sports maharishi’s signature camo pattern throughout the upper in a stark contrast of white on black. While maharishi is evident through print, both Undefeated and adidas Originals gets its logos subtly stamped with Undefeated found on the exterior side above the stripes, and adidas branding on the tongue and heel tab. The shoe rests on a white mid-sole with black outsole, and comes with black laces and a touch of orange on its perforated tongue tag button. This rendition of the ZX 5000 can be found at Undefeated and maharishi stores come December 5, then at Consortium dealers worldwide beginning December 13.

Laetitia Casta is the latest subject for famed photographer and luck-hoarder Mario Sorrenti, as the two paired for an editorial in the December 2014 issue of LUI Magazine. The former Victoria’s Secret Angel and GUESS? Girl looks distractingly svelte as she rocks pieces from Champion Vintage, Band of Outsiders, and Hermes – although we suspect the clothes themselves aren’t the real draw here. Enjoy some photos from the editorial above, then head to your local international newsstand to pick up the latest LUI.
