Whether you like it or not, collaborations have become the easiest way of creating something new.
When it was first announced that Prada would be partnering with adidas, it came as a surprise to all of us. Seeing a luxury giant collaborate with a sportswear label felt refreshing, and immediately had fans excited for what was to come.
Then it was revealed that it was just an adidas Superstar sneaker, updated with a small Prada logo detail. Sure, the shoe came with a Prada x adidas branded logo bag, but it wasn’t anything new or exciting – just lazy. However, the Highsnob team still loved them.
It is hard to get a collaboration between two brands with such distinct DNAs right, and despite the lackluster innovation in the two’s first partnership, another release was teased that had fans a lot more excited.
The A+P Luna Rossa was designed for the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli sailing team, and the AC75 Runa Rossa boat plaid a big part in inspiring the shoe’s design. With its nod to Prada’s vast array of retro footwear, and adidas’ performance history, the collaboration was an instant success.
After the success, another Prada x adidas rumor began circulating on the Internet, after A$AP Rocky wore a pair of white adidas Forum sneakers decked out with Prada logo pouches.
It took quite some time, but eventually, the Forum collaboration was confirmed. This time around, Prada added one of its signature elements, Re-Nylon, to the Three Stripes silhouette, creating the perfect marriage of the two brands.
Instead of spacing out the colorways, this time they’ll all be dropping at once. Two iterations of the Forum will be available – the Low and High – in both black and white options.
In addition to the footwear, a wide range of apparel including tracksuits, a bucket hat, and a bag will also drop alongside it, marking what I personally think is the strongest collaboration yet.
As Prada’s relationship with adidas continues to grow and develop, we’re going to see plenty of more from the duo. Whether it is taking on classic silhouettes such as the Stan Smith or the Samba, or introducing more apparel, we’re excited about the future.
’13 Reasons Why’ Producer Lists Grand Windsor Square Colonial
Michael Sugar, Lauren Wall Sugar
Windsor Square, Los Angeles, Calif.
B. Cooper Corbett
10,821 square feet, 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms
Less than a month ago, Michael Sugar put his $6.3 million ocean-view mansion in the OC community of Dana Point up for sale. Now the Oscar-winning producer and his wife Lauren have decided to clean house entirely in California — the couple is also selling their Colonial-style main residence in Los Angeles. The asking price is nearly $14 million for those stately digs, which the Sugars picked up back in 2018, paying $9 million to previous owner Don Hankey.
Built in the early 1900s for produce wholesaler Thomas O’Neill, and designed by architect B. Cooper Corbett, the home’s exterior retains its historic charm, though the interiors have been fully modernized. Ritzy amenities of the three-story, 11,000-square-foot mansion include a plush movie theater and billiard room with wet bar and mirrored gym, plus a lounge room that spills out to a covered terrace ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining.
Resting on a nearly half-acre parcel, and separated from the street and sidewalk by a wide walkway flanked by a manicured lawn, the red brick and white stucco structure is crowned by a trio of dormer windows. The front door holds court beneath a columned and arched portico, and opens into sun-drenched interiors punctuated throughout by stone accents, rich hardwood floors, intricate moldings and coffered ceilings, along with a Crestron home-automation system.
A double-height foyer greets and displays a crystal chandelier and grand wraparound staircase. From there, a spacious formal living room boasts a fireplace; and a gourmet kitchen is outfitted with custom cabinetry, marble countertops, an eat-in island, and Wolf and SubZero appliances. A separate butler’s pantry leads to a huge blush-colored formal dining room, and an adjoining fireside family room has French doors that open to the backyard.
Upstairs, a library/office is adorned with ingrained shelves, while the sumptuous master retreat features a fireplace, private balcony, showroom-style closet, and marble bath equipped with dual vanities and a soaking tub. As for the picturesque backyard, you’ll find a firepit area, built-in BBQ, children’s playhouse, and large rectangular pool and spa. There’s also a detached guesthouse with a full kitchen, living room and bath.
Sugar is CEO and founder of Sugar23, a management, production and private-equity company with a multiyear Netflix deal. He garnered a Best Picture Oscar for “Spotlight,” and Peabody Awards for the TV shows “The Knick” and “Dickinson.” Additional credits include “13 Reasons Why,” “The Laundromat,” “Maniac,” “The Report” and “Worth.”
Oren Mordkowitz of Pinnacle Estate Properties serves as the listing agent.

Gnarhunters Tease Upcoming Nike SB Dunk Collab
Featuring removable Swooshes.
The Nike SB Dunk is poised to have another huge year in 2022 with several collaborative styles on the horizon.
One of the pairs that are coming is this all-black makeup of the SB Dunk Low designed in partnership with the skate and surf label Gnarhunters. Newly leaked images from both Gnarhunters on its Instagram story and leaker account @Die_sel666 show that the collab will feature an unconventional terry-like material combined with matching nylon overlay panels on the upper. The collab also features removable Swooshes while Gnarhunters branding appears on the tongue and heel tab. Breaking up the stealthy execution is a yellow insole and a white outsole.
Prior to this collab, Gnarhunters and Nike SB joined forces in 2019 for the first time to deliver a similarly styled SB Blazer Mid.
Despite an early look, release info for the Gnarhunters x Nike SB Dunk Low hasn’t been announced by the brands, but check back soon to Sole Collector for updates.
