By Michelle Wilding in New Fashion on Thursday 9 August 2012

I love seeing young, creative minds expressing original ideas in a bid to stylise the world. So when Miami Beach-based fashion/entertainment group College Lyfe hit my radar, my attention was caught.

I’m pretty bummed that I randomly stumbled across Brooklyn apparel store, Kings of NY, a week after I departed New York. I dig the stocked Bronx streetwear label Don’t Question Kings; creators of simple, aesthetically-pleasing tees and totes which boldly adorn the words, On My NY Sh!t. Now I think the hip, modern day slogan gives ‘I Heart NY’ a run for its money. No?

By Michelle Wilding in New Design on Tuesday 7 August 2012

If your eyeballs have been glued to the London 2012 Olympics, chances are you’re being bombarded with advertising. Adidas alone reportedly paid $150 million to secure an official sponsorship deal.
