Kito Flex Dopeness: #WalkThisWay

Let me introduce you to the budding premium fashion accessory line of Mr. Kito Flex

Kito Flex

Growing up in Houston, TX, 26 year-old Kito Flex always had big dreams of being successful and always had a love for fashion, especially unique accessories that assisted in making his outfits stand out from the crowd. Kito had the artistic idea to create a men’s accessory line (must be the dog…lol…kidding) that would reflect his unique style while staying true to his Houston roots. In early 2013, the Kito Flex Collection was born.

Gia On The Move: “This dude is “killin’ it”! And we love the inspirational message on the back of his labels.  Check out what he recently wrote to his Instagram followers:

Kito FlexIMG_9758-2.“You guys probably never noticed this but, I do have an inspirational message on the back of all my products! Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. #HappySunday Be blessed “

Bringing awareness of Houston culture to the forefront and cultivating design filled with inspirational art and creativity the line currently includes four premium sock patterns:

  • Baby Bottles”,
  • the vicious red “Bomb” socks,
  • the swangin’ “SLAB” socks (Slow, Loud, and Bangin aka a fully customized car)
  • and the most popular socks shrouded in “Lean Cups” filled with purple drank, inspired by the music of DJ Screw, UGK, Slim Thug and other Houston legends.

I’ve taken ordinary accessories and just added my creative twist to it and hope everyone else enjoys the art. I believe, no matter race or gender, my brand has something to offer to all individuals.”           – Kito Flex

The popularity of the Kito Flex Collection is spreading like wild fire and currently you can spot Houstonians all over rocking these socks.  We love the line at Gia On The Move because it’s just plain fun and sexy.  Plus we’re huge advocates of edgy entrepreneurs on the pulse! …and Gia will be rockin’ her own pair(s) very shortly. :)

More From Paris Fashion Week: Christian Dior SS15

In the heart of the Cour Carrée of the Louvre, Raf Simons for Christian Dior revisits the past in order to understand the future. In the heart of the Cour Carrée of the Louvre, Raf Simons for Christian Dior revisits the past in order to understand the future. As for his couture show, the designer plays with historical volumes of the riding coats, and the hooped petticoats of the 18th century, reinterpreted and reworked for the taste of today, in contemporary fabrics, and lightened tapestry prints. The show started with streamlined silhouettes composed of trousers and jackets with large contrasting cuffs on the sleeves. Then the bodies are buttoned to the skirts à la française, long shirt-dresses were adorned with floral and guipure prints, as well as aviator combinations appeared very modern. The high waisted Bermuda shorts were paired with sleeveless jackets with the volume billowing backwards, worn with sock boots. An extremely contemporary wardrobe writing a new page of Chistian Dior history. Music from the show

They also earned Fashion Group International’s “Rising Star Award” and Gen-Art’s “Design Fashion Award.” The label quickly gained popularity among a host of celebrities such as Will Smith, Samuel L. Jackson, Courtney B. Vance, D.L. Hughley, and Jamie Foxx, renowned musicians including Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, and Sean John “Diddy” Combs, and star pro athletes such as Latrell Sprewell, Curtis Martin, and Steve Francis.

Springtime in Paris: CARVEN SS15

by Paris Modes TV

CARVEN SS15 Paris

 

The last aerodynamic collection at Carven for Guillaume Henry.

The Carven woman has more and more self confidence and she’s always moving at a fast pace. The silhouette is aerodynamic, sporty and graphic, with a touch of the sixties through the zip detailing and the turned out collars. Cycling shorts, cropped jackets, skirts and short dresses done in colour block or in multiple graphic oriental prints creates a young and fresh wardrobe, full of personality designed by Guillaume Henry for his last collection at Carven.

Guillaume Henry: “This season I had a clear vision of a dynamic and feminine woman with no fuss or frills, but had something a bit radical, like a line on the ground, like a path, yes a notion of speed. I didn’t want to approach this collection with an overwhelming amount of clothes but more with an overwhelming energy and so there is an energy in the collection. I wanted to work with structured clothes, and jackets and coats and all of them with clothes like pilots, the jackets almost in competition, but with couture accents in the materials.”

Music from the show.

What’s Happening in Paris: Fashion Week Day 3

ROLAND MOURET – COLLECTION SPRING/SUMMER 2015 IN PARIS

Paris Fashion Week Day 3

 

A “desirable” collection by Roland Mouret…The first show of the day was at the Beaux Arts, for Roland Mouret, who just like an artist, uses colour to structure the silhouettes. The designer from Toulouse adorned the girls in a number of dresses and close fitting skirts, with a very defined waist which flared at the hips, and also ultra sculpted pieces with zips at the back. A 3D appliquéd rose, made this collection even more feminine. The elastic bands outlined the backs and shoulders. The bright orange brought the show to a close with assymetrical tops and dresses embroidered with frayed feathers. Roland Mouret is becoming more and more international with the opening of a boutique on Madison Avenue, a wonderful French success for the self-taught designer! Music from the show.
