Experts in stylish acetate sunglasses, Super have launched their debut line of eyeglasses for Spring/Summer '12. The OPTICAL line features nine of their favourite shapes, retouched and re-worked for a stylish and functional set, catering for almost every taste and look. It's quite an impressive introductory drop, with each model available in three colourways. These may answer my call for a new set of frames perhaps, certainly looks solid. They'll be available at opticians and all. Glad to hear it.
Made of this nice deep blue canvas upper, the new Nike Dunk Hi AC arrives for summer. Fitted with round brown laces and matching tonal eyelets, it looks a very strong edition of the ever-popular high top silhouette. The gum tips on the clean white outsoles absolutely nail it, finishing the sneaker with a great balance, one that I've not seen too often. A very solid drop.
These are the new Court Deck sneakers by adidas Originals for Summer '12. A light court mid with boat shoe influences, it brings a refreshing feel to the standard shoe. It comes in three colourways, but each uses varying materials, thus producing completely different takes of the same silhouette. There's the pinstriped canvas with brown leather stripes, which is perhaps the most summertime-friendly, then a clean white and black model, as well as an all-leather upper version with embossed detailing. An interesting collection of three bold stand-alone summer footwear, available to purchase now.

While we've been able to treat ourselves to her beautiful debut album for a good few months now, the US have been only just been hyping with its release across the atlantic last week. (Speaking to all Americans) she's amazing no? During her promotional stay in the US, she performed this acoustic set for YouTube Presents, a quite stunning quartet of piano renditions. Now that she's back in the UK, we eagerly await her original album that has been promised for release this year. It's set to include her hit track "Just A Game" penned specially for the feature film "The Hunger Games", which is a nice taster for what's to come.
