Allbirds Creates Eye Mask for Air New Zealand

TAKING FLIGHT–Shoes from Allbirds, the Leonardo DiCaprio-backed sustainable brand have quickly morphed into a consumer favorite. Now via a partnership with Air New Zealand, the buzzy brand has ventured into a different kind of accessory, producing an in-flight eye mask for the first time.
Dubbed ‘the Bird Mask’ the travel accessory is made out of ZQ-certified New Zealand merino wool and castor bean oil-based foam. It includes molded eye indentations which allow for natural eye movement during sleep, and a birdlike beak to act as a seal against the face to block out light.
Air New Zealand, known for its quirky celebrity-filled flight safety videos, has made the mask available on board the business premier cabin on selected North American routes throughout October, including the airline’s service between Los Angeles and London.
“By putting our heads together we’ve created a product our customers will truly value and re-use again and again, while also benefitting New Zealand’s international brand awareness,”  said Air New Zealand chief marketing & customer officer Mike Tod.
“We jumped at the chance to work with Air New Zealand, a brand that similarly prioritises thoughtful design and customer experience,” said Allbirds co-founder Tim Brown. “By bringing our comfort expertise to the Bird Mask, we’ve been able to create

Vevers Creates Special Imagery to Kick Off Darker Disney Collab

Stuart Vevers’ obsession with Disney continues.
To promote the launch of his Disney x Coach: A Dark Fairy Tale collection, which goes live on May 14, the creative director of Coach has created a wide assortment of images that speak to what the brand is calling the “spooky undertones and the tension of nostalgic Disney animations.”
That translates into images of poisoned apples, floating eyes and spooky castles inspired by the darker side of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” and “Sleeping Beauty” that Vevers used on retro T-shirts, moto jackets, hoodies, sneakers, fanny packs and bags. The images will be used online and in stores.
“I have always loved Disney — both the movies and the fantasy worlds created that have captured my imagination for many decades,” Vevers said. “It was fun to explore the darker side of these stories and mix Disney’s nostalgic charm with Coach’s creativity to bring my memories from these fairy tales to life within our world of accessories and ready-to-wear. The Disney spirit truly reinforces the new youthful perspective we are bringing to luxury at Coach.”
This marks the third collaboration between Coach and Disney and the collection will launch on Monday in Coach stores and online. Select

Jimmy Choo Creates Bejeweled Shoes for Gènavant Collection

CAMBRIDGE COUTURIER: In an unconventional fusion of stilettos and sapphires, pumps and pearls,  Jimmy Choo has added fine jewelry to his repertoire with Gènavant.
Choo has been working with his godson Reggie Hung on the collection, which was the subject of a one-day exhibition at the Cambridge International Art Gallery on Friday.
He and Hung unveiled a glittering selection of bejeweled shoes — and shoe-inspired jewelry — during the event, which drew clients, friends and family including Choo’s daughter Emily.
The shoemaker talked about the importance of craftsmanship and said Gènavant was created to keep the skills of fine jewelry alive.
“The main reason I’m here is for Reggie. The most important thing is the skill and I want to keep supporting the crafts and the craftsmen so they can create more beautiful things,” said Choo.
The shoes and jewelry on display were done purely for the show, and the exhibition is set to travel to London, Milan, Shanghai and Beijing.
The artisanal pieces were meant to evoke grace, peace and elegance, according to Choo. Heels were embellished with rubies, pearls, sapphires and other stones, making for some weighty shoes — with price points to match.
He said prices will range from 1 million pounds to 4 million

Charlotte Moss Creates Collection for Ibu

By Women, For Women: Charlotte Moss is spreading her wings.
The interior designer and lifestyle authority collaborated on fall clothing, jewelry, shoes and accessories for Ibu, a three-year-old brand offering artisanal wares handmade by women in 34 nations. Moss and Ibu founder and creative director Susan Walker showcased the goods Wednesday and Thursday at Ceylon et Cie in Dallas.
From a Panamanian mola clutch to a cream and black felted wool coat made in Kyrgyzstan, Charlotte Moss for Ibu merges ethnic motifs with urban sophistication.
“It’s almost evergreen,” said Moss, gazing at a rack of the designs. “A caftan is forever. I often look at it as, ‘How do I justify certain prices for fashion when you know it’s done next season?’ Now I want to dress like this. We’re a global world, and it’s global attire.”
Walker is a former minister and trained weaver who got the idea for Ibu while visiting Timor and noticing that tourist shops sold soulless trinkets instead of native craftwork.
“There are people who want to pay for the real deal,” she said. “Women were putting their stories into textiles, and it’s a cultural language. I wanted to save that and put money into the hands of the women

Agnès b. Creates Postage Stamps to Benefit the French Red Cross

AGNÈS B. POSTS: As part of her company’s ongoing humanitarian efforts, French designer agnès b. has designed a handful of French postage stamps to benefit the French Red Cross. Inspired by the organization’s signature emblem, she has created a booklet of five that will sell for $ 5.87 in post offices across France and in agnès b. boutiques there as well. In response, La Poste will donate to the French Red Cross $ 2.17 (based on current exchange rates) for each packet sold. The designer’s stamps, which carry such sayings as “The Red Cross was made from love and courage” and “Together with the Red Cross” are available through August in post offices and agnès b. boutiques across France.
Agnès b.’s involvement was not in response to the Red Cross’ involvement in the European migrant crisis, a company spokesman said Monday.
Deciding on “simple, airy, and pure forms that are a little bit like a child’s drawings,” the Paris-based designer said she “tried to find something, which is a metaphor of my love for the Red Cross, by inspiring me of the actions in which I had the privilege to be associated with….There is at first a heart, which I created during the siege

Mom Creates Comic To Teach 7-Year-Old Daughter To Accept Her Natural Beauty

When 7-year-old Natalie McGriff struggled to embrace her natural black beauty, her mom was the first one to encourage her to love her hair and her beautiful brown skin and to apply the confidence that comes with self-acceptance.

But it wasn’t easy.

Natalie didn’t see herself reflected on TV and among the toys she owned — and because of this lack of representation began to describe herself as “ugly,” said her mother, Angie Nixon.

Nixon was determined to teach her daughter valuable lessons on self-image and self-love.

“I started a Facebook group called ‘Natalie You Are Beautiful’ where strangers and friends could post positive affirmations for her,” Nixon told The Huffington Post. “She enjoyed reading them but it still wasn’t helping her.”

Invested in her mission, Nixon took a more creative approach. She hit on the idea of a comic book that would portray the 7-year-old as a superhero with crime-fighting afro puffs. The hero’s curly hair, a trait that Natalie found hard to accept, became her crowning glory that came with special magical powers.

Natalie was immediately on board. She gave her mom story ideas for the comic and the two made the book together.

Shortly after, the pair launched The Adventures Of Moxie Girl, a comic starring a fictional Natalie who activates the superpowers in her magical puffs to fend off book-eating monsters that attack her local library.

“I was hoping to improve and raise the self-esteem of my daughter. I also wanted to instill in her a love for reading,” Nixon said. “I wanted her to realize how powerful she is and that she shouldn’t have to change for anything.”

moxie girl

Nixon submitted the comic book to a crowdfunding festival in their hometown of Jacksonville, Florida, where attendees cast ballots on who would take home the large cash prize.

It turned out Natalie wasn’t the only one who fell in love with Moxie Girl — voters championed the idea and daughter and mother took home $ 16,400 to put towards a larger print run for the comic. The book will come out in June, Nixon announced on Instagram.

Now Natalie has much stronger self-esteem — and so does Nixon. She advises other parents to always feed their children positive affirmations and model the self-respect they want their kids to have.

“How can I tell my daughter her hair is beautiful in its natural state, if I alter mine?” she said. “I have to embrace my natural beauty before I am truly able to tell her to embrace hers.”

“We have to work on ourselves as parents first. We have to model the behavior that we want to see in our children,” Nixon said.

Artist Natalie Sharp Creates Incredible Album Art On Her Face For Record Store Day

Spoiler alert: The best album in this collection is Nirvana’s “Nevermind.”

East London musician and artist Natalie Sharp, 33, painted the covers of different music albums onto her face in honor of last week’s Record Store Day.

Though she originally thought she could accomplish more than 40 albums, she told The Huffington Post she quickly realized how daunting the task was.

“I started off thinking that every time I finished listening to the album I would only play [the album] on repeat for each face and have a glass of bubbly,” but that didn’t fare too well, Sharp said in an email. “By the end of it I was hammered and getting topless in front of a bewildered looking cat.”

The 11 album covers that she did manage to recreate are all pretty beautiful, so we’ll forgive her.

Check out her full collection below, and don’t forget to follow her other art projects.

Geico Creates ‘Unskippable’ Preroll YouTube Ads That You’ll Want To Watch Till The End

After sitting through the first five unavoidable seconds of a YouTube preroll ad, most people don’t bother watching the spot till the end. But Geico is now hoping to change that with two new preroll commercials that promise to be “unskippable.”

Both Geico ads, created by The Martin Agency, cleverly place emphasis on the first five seconds, acknowledging that they only have those few moments to capture the audience’s attention.

“You can’t skip this Geico ad,” the commercial says, “because it’s already over.”

If viewers choose to continue watching, however, they’re rewarded with an unexpected and funny ending.

One of the ads features a family sitting around a dining table while another shows two friends enjoying a barbecue. Watch how the first commercial unfolds in the video above. The other ad can be viewed here:

Anya Hindmarch Creates Clever Campaign For Solange's Jay Z Fight Clutch

We’ve watched the Solange-Jay Z brawl footage about a hundred times. While it’s still unclear why it went down, we do know one thing — Beyoncé’s little sister sure knows how to put up a fight.

And Solange‘s arms and legs weren’t the only arsenal she employed — the singer’s clutch also got into the action. The accessory was thrown, dropped and tugged several times throughout the 3-minute 30-second melee, a fact that wasn’t overlooked by its designer Anya Hindmarch.

The British luxury accessories brand decided to capitalize on the headlining news and created a campaign for its Crisp Packet Clutch, which was tweeted out to the world on Tuesday.

We definitely don’t condone violence (even if it’s over a fab handbag), but this might be one of the most clever, tongue-in-cheek marketing ads to come out of such an unfortunate situation.

In addition, fashion buffs should also note that Solange’s shoes that evening were Stuart Weitzman’s oh-so-popluar “Nudist” sandals. Miraculously, the thin-strapped heels also emerged from the heated scuffle unscathed. Talk about taking (er, giving) a lickin’ and keep on tickin’!

Here’s another look at Solange’s super “tough” accessories. What do you think of Anya Hindmarch’s “Worth fighting for” ad?
