1,164 days in the making, TEDxPortland‘s 10th year — which has been rescheduled a total of three times — is finally happening. Come May 28th, the doors of the Moda Center and Theater will greet a drove of attendees, who will enjoy not only a series of TED Talks but also numerous performances, from Death Cab for Cutie to a Jimi Hendrix tribute by Tyrone Hendrix.
Nike, though, may as well headline the occasion, as they’re commemorating Year 10 with a collaborative Air Force 1. And much like the event itself, it seems the the shoes, too, took 1,164 to come to life, as the number is written across the medial heel in bold font. Opposite, “IDEAS WORTH SPREADING” is debossed into the lateral side, its coloring near invisible atop the upper’s white leather construction. The branding is also given a slight makeover: the Swoosh is treated to an iridescent finish, the number “10” is emblemized on the heel tab, and “TEDxPortland” replaces Nike Air on the tongue. Additionally, “AIR” is highlighted in red across the midsole and “AUDACIOUS,” the theme for 2022, is printed onto the insole.
For a closer look at the TEDxPortland x Nike Air Force 1, see below. The first opportunity to purchase a pair will happen on-site during the event. Tickets are currently available right now on Ticketmaster, starting at $59.00.
In other news, we recently took a look at almost every TEDxPortland Nike Sneaker.
Welcome to Laura Pausini’s Eurovision, a High Fashion Triathlon
Eurovision, music’s campiest song contest, came to a triumphant conclusion on May 14 (congratulations, Ukraine, on the much-deserved win — that sopilka refrain has been stuck in my head for days). If you’ve ever seen Eurovision, or at least watched that Will Ferrell movie about it, you already know that its wild fashion is just as entertaining as the music itself.
While some finalists pulled out all the stops (i.e. Australia’s Sheldon Riley, and Spain’s Chanel), this year’s sartorial main event wasn’t a contestant but rather, a host.
THIS EVENING MY ADVENTURE AT THE EUROVISION BEGINS!!
Thanks to @vogue_italia and Francesca Ragazzi, today we introduce you to a preview of the 3 amazing dresses that I will wear this evening designed for me by Pierpaolo Piccioli, @MaisonValentino.

Italian singer Laura Pausini, who emceed alongside Alessandro Cattelan and Mika, paraded out a slew of designer looks throughout the weeklong event. Kitted out in Versace, Valentino, and Alberta Feretti, she repped three of Italy’s finest — Milan’s Giovanna Engelbert, creative director of Swarovski, even accessorized the host.
Pausini’s best look, though, was an aquamarine number from Atelier Versace, complete with latex tights and the label’s infamous platform heels.
Pausini’s Eurovision gig was a veritable high fashion triathlon and for that, she and her stylist deserve an award. Get some rest, queen — if you need us, we’ll be taking a leisurely stroll through the three legs of your Eurovision 2022 style tour.
Loewe’s Flower Sunglasses Will Be the Accessory of the Summer
Loewe does damn good eyewear.
Every season, the label comes out with a silhouette that somehow always ends up on my wish list. Over the past year, it has been the Paula’s Ibiza sunglasses that come in plenty of different colors (you know the ones), and now the label has released its latest silhouette.
The new shades arrive with a flower-shaped frame crafted from injected nylon and are available in plenty of different hues including pink, green, yellow, and black.
They may be a statement piece, but knowing Loewe’s influence, they’ll become the it-item before we know it – just like accessories from the previous seasons.
In addition to the flower shades, the Paula’s Ibiza collection features more statement shades, including a heart-shaped pair that is perfectly Y2K, the oversized “dive in mask” glasses that I’ve been eyeing (excuse the pun) since they first released, and plenty of new colors on the rectangular fit “Original” Paula’s Ibiza shades.
Basically, there are plenty of eyewear options to choose from, and we can’t get enough.
There’s no doubt that we’ll be seeing the flower shades all over social media this summer, as they not only make for the perfect statement accessory but also make any outfit a lot more fun, which is core to Loewe.
Recently, the label has been playing with unconventional silhouettes and fun items to create everything from the egg heels, to dresses with balloon boobs, making fashion a little less serious and a whole lot more enjoyable and unexpected, capturing Jonathan Anderson’s whimsical vision.
It also cast Anthony Hopkins for its latest campaign, which I’d argue was the most unexpected thing thus far.
The shades are currently available as part of Loewe’s latest Paula’s Ibiza collection, and are for sale online at Loewe’s website where they retail at approximately $350 USD, as well as at select retailers worldwide. Run, don’t walk for these.
LSU Colors Dress This Nike Dunk High
New colorway possibly dropping soon.
Official Nike product images of the Dunk High “Court Purple” have emerged, which is a new makeup that’s said to be hitting shelves soon. This pair dons a color scheme that’s reminiscent of the Louisiana State University (LSU) Tigers, with a gold-based leather upper and is coupled with purple overlay panels. Breaking up the bold execution is a white midsole and a solid purple outsole underneath. Similar to past college-themed styles, this pair doesn’t feature any official school logos on the shoe that confirms its connection to the institution.
As of now, release details for this “Court Purple” Dunk High have not yet been announced by Nike but check back soon to Sole Collector for updates.
