The LA Auto show is now officially under way – kicking off the festivities last night was an incredible event hosted by smart USA featuring celebrity designer Jeremy Scott. The world premiere of a customized showcar titled smart forjeremy took place at Jim Henson studios where a vehicle with Jeremy’s signature wings was revealed to the public. And for those interested in a car like this for themselves, this car is an electric vehicle that will be available to consumers in 2013.
Adding to the event experience was a performance by M.I.A. Who lit up the stage next to the car. Some fans in the audience included Perez Hilton, Liberty Ross, Cameron Silver and ASAP Rocky.
I love the smartcar since I first saw it in Germany on my 11th Grade trip. the forglossy smart will look white with a fun fur pink interior with the license plate UNQRBT. 🙂 Unique Rabbit. Yup!
A new Adidas sneaker has sparked outrage, with sneaker fans accusing the brand of promoting racism. The Roundhouse Mid “Handcuff” shoe, created by controversial New York designer Jeremy Scott, features a plastic orange shackle that attaches to each ankle. The $350 sneakers hit stores in August, but Adidas promoted them on their official Facebook page on June 14 with this quote: “Tighten up your style with the JS Roundhouse Mids, dropping in August. Got a sneaker game so hot you lock your kicks to your ankles?” While the brand may be making a cheeky statement about shoe theft, many are equating these binding devices with slavery and prisoners. At press time the “Handcuff” sneaker image has over 36,000 Facebook likes, but many of the comments are angry and disapproving.

I went to the store in Flatiron over the weekend and experienced that elixir from the coolhunter’s cup. Here are some of the things I saw. But there is more, and I want them all.
