컨버스, 98년만에 새로운 '척 테일러'를 출시하다

(1) Comments | Posted July 29, 2015 | 5:50 PM


컨버스 척 테일러의 리디자인에 대해 이야기하는 허핑턴포스트 에디터들

신발 브랜드 컨버스의 '척 테일러' 모델만큼 아이코닉한 신발은 별로 없을 것이다. 심플하면서 스타일리시한 이 신발은 1917년 패션계와 거리를 강타했다. 그 이후로 척 테일러는 프로 운동선수, 락스타, 퍼스트 레이디 등의 유명인들이 신으며 그 위상을 공고히 했다.

최초의 척 테일러가 탄생한 지 98년이 흐른 지금, 컨버스는 '척 테일러 올스타 II'라는 이름으로 척테일러의 새로운 디자인을 발표했다. 컨버스는 이번 리디자인을 두고 "현대적인 적응"이라고 칭했다.

컨버스 올스타의 부사장이자 사업 본부장 리차드 콥컷은 "컨버스는 사람들이 척 테일러의 어떤 점을 좋아하는지 그리고 어떤 것이 더 담겼으면 하는지 들었으며 이를 깊이 생각했습니다."라고 보도자료에서 말했다. "'척 테일러 II'는 오리지널의 DNA는 간직하면서 소비자의 생각을 완전히 표현한 제품입니다."

언뜻 보면, 그전과 디자인이 크게 달라진 것 같지는 않다. 오히려 좋은 일이다. 이제껏 사랑받아온 첫 테일러가 완전히 다른 모습으로 변한다면 싫어했을지도 모른다. 업그레이드는 주로 신발의 소재와 구조에서 이루어졌다. 텐셀(Tencel) 소재의 어퍼(갑피)부분, 폼(발포고무)를 넣어 푹신하고 미끄러지지 않는 신발 혀부분, 미세한 구멍이 난 스웨이드 내피, 나이키의 중창 폼 소재인 루나론(Lunerlon)을 쓴 삭 라이너(sock liner, 발목을 감싸는 내피부분)는 구름 위를 걷는 느낌을 준다. 컨버스의 팬이라면 이러한 요소로 더욱 편안한 핏을 기대할 수 있을 것이다.

3

그래서 이 신발은 언제 손에 넣을 수 있느냐고? '척 테일러 올스타 II'는 7월 28일 발매됐으며, 소매가는 70달러(로우탑), 75달러(하이탑)이다.

컨버스의 새 디자인에 대해 어떻게 생각하는가? 댓글로 허핑턴포스트 독자들의 의견을 알려주시라.

Look What Happens When Moms Choose Their Daughters' Hairstyles

(0) Comments | Posted July 28, 2015 | 12:42 PM

Mothers supposedly know best. And when it comes to etiquette, men, money, and the importance of lipstick, she's usually spot on. But would you ever let your mom dictate your hairstyle?

The folks over at Buzzfeed thought it would be fun to see exactly what would happen when three courageous women allowed their mothers to choose their 'do

With the help of a trained stylist, the mothers relayed specific directions for what they'd like to see on their daughters. One mom insisted on something "high fashion, but cool and funky," another wanted the "sleek bob" that Katie Holmes rocked back in 2008, and the third mom dreamed of "Hollywood glamour." Not too shabby -- those descriptions don't sound too matronly or out-of-touch. 

But there's always a twist. The reluctant, yet brave, daughters were only able to see the results of their new looks after they were revealed to their mothers.  So does mother actually know best when it comes to hair? 

 Check out the video above to find out.

We Tracked Down 17 Of The Most Lust-Worthy Lipstick Shades

(0) Comments | Posted July 28, 2015 | 10:49 AM

Lipstick is arguably the most beloved item in our beauty arsenal. Few things have the power to completely transform our look in two seconds flat. Plus, there's no denying the importance of a product that was once supposedly worn by George Washington, and also used to indicate whether or not a woman was a prostitute

These days, the biggest problem we have with lipstick is figuring out which color to wear or how to stop buying so many tubes (answer to the latter: it's impossible). Thankfully, there's an endless feed of lipstick inspiration at our fingertips: Instagram. 

Whether you're looking for the perfect rose-pink shade for your upcoming trip to Dubai or just feel like perking up your mood (and look) in a classic red, there is plenty to pore over on the social media platform. 

With that said, in celebration of National Lipstick Day on July 29, we've rounded up some of the prettiest pouts on Instagram, showing you where you can find each eye-catching color. Muah!

Converse Chuck Taylors Get Their First-Ever Redesign In 98 Years

(0) Comments | Posted July 24, 2015 | 10:08 AM

There are few shoes more iconic than the Chuck Taylor All Star. The simple yet stylish kicks from Converse first hit the scene (and streets) in 1917. Since then, they have been worn by professional athletes, rock stars and even the first lady. 

Now, 98 years since their inception, the legendary sneakers are getting their first-ever redesign with the debut of the Chuck Taylor All Star II. Converse calls it "a contemporary adaptation."

 

“We listened and took it to heart that people love their Chucks and want sneakers that are built to enable them to do more," said Richard Copcutt, vice president and general manager of Converse All Star, in a press release. "The Chuck II is the full expression of this consumer obsession, staying true to the DNA of the original.” 

At first glance it doesn't look like much has changed -- which is a good thing, since we would hate to see our beloved Chucks be completely reworked. The upgrades are primarily in the shoes' materials and construction. Fans can expect a more comfortable fit thanks to a Tencel canvas upper, foam-padded collar, non-slip padded tongue, perforated micro-suede liner, and a Nike Lunerlon sock liner that basically makes you feel like you're walking on air. 

So when can you get your feet into these beauties? Chuck Taylor All Star IIs will be released on July 28, retailing for $70 (low-tops) and $75 (high-tops). 

What do you think of the new design? Sound off in the comments section below.

모델들은 정상급 패션 디자이너들의 옷을 입으면서 유명세를 얻는다. 그러나 케이트 모스에 있어서라면, 그녀는 오히려 옷을 입지 않는 것으로 슈퍼모델 지위를 단단하게 굳혀왔다.

How The World Really Feels About The Murse, Aka The Man Purse

The murse, or man purse, is quite a polarizing accessory. On one hand, heroic male characters like Indiana Jones have sported the small crossbody bag. But on the other hand it's been the butt of jokes -- like in "The Hangover," when actor Zach Galifianakis' character had to

Samantha Bee Rubs Up On Some Models To Celebrate Men's Fashion Week

(0) Comments | Posted July 14, 2015 | 11:17 AM

The first-ever Men's New York Fashion Week is in full swing. We're keeping an eye on all of the Spring/Summer 2016 designs hitting the runway and all the celebrities sitting in the front row

There is definitely a lot to celebrate and Amazon Fashion, the marquee sponsor for the four-day event, is helping to do just that by offering up some laughs. 

The e-commerce website tapped "The Daily Show" star Samantha Bee to star in a short video feting the inaugural event. Bee is filmed visiting fashion designer Robert Geller's showroom during a model fitting ahead of his Fashion Week presentation. What ensues is a hilarious, tongue-in-cheek exchange between the Canadian comedian, Geller, and the very handsome male models. 

Bee has us in stitches as she jokingly mocks them, while also being as blatantly sexist as possible. At one point she rattles off a list of terms she has for male models, which includes "stylish imbeciles, Donny dimwits, and magnificent doofs." 

Check out the video above and let us know what you think about it in the comments section below.
