EkoCycle Menswear by will.i.am

  Now if will.i.am isn’t a style icon, then I’m not a Ducati riding dude. And you all know I am. I have no idea why we didn’t come across this exception, innovative, sustainable, forward thinking brand earlier, because if we had, we’d have ordered our allotment of shirts earlier. Awesome! To date, 1.5 Million […]

Louis Vuitton vs. H & M

The world of fashion is changing. Fast. Once upon a time, fashion was only accessible to the rich, now-a-days – with commercialism, capitalism and other economic and egotistical factors, fashion (now expected to be fast fashion) is touched by all.
