Design, art, culture and everything in-between.

Covetable World Cup
I'm sure many of you experienced the World Cup MANIA that went on over the weekend. Regardless of who won, who lost, who tied, and what that noise is, I was definitely interested to learn that art, design, and fashion are playing their part in this competition!
Nike has set up pop-up stadiums in several cities world-wide. The Bowery pop-up stadium, whose basement locker rooms are pictured above, is operating as a venue for the NYC soccer community to congregate to watch the World Cup games.
The Official Art Poster Edition of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa includes 17 acclaimed artists. The 17 different posters within the collection are all SO unique. I just loved 12/17, "Red Elephant" by Isolde Krams. It's such a bold representation!
This Nike top was a design collaboration between Nunca and an acclaimed Brazilian street artist. It's made for both high and low performance activities. You'll feel like a total athlete the second you put it on, but I can't promise anything about after you start your workout! :)
Havaianas are everyone's favorite sandal, they're so comfortable, affordable, and easy to grab on your way out the door! I probably wear mine too much. This Brazilian company has come out with both men's and women's sandals to represent every team playing in the World Cup (Spain pictured above), how cool is that?!?
