Genralpants #givepeace

Aussie highstreet chain General pants has started a campaign over christmas called #givepeace. Its a t-shirt collaboration with brands like Vans, Stussy, Ksubi, Insight, RVCA, santa cruz and a few others. All of the proceeds go to two charities, Save the children Australia and Salvation army oasis youth support network.

 I'm a huge t-shirt lover and think t-shirt/ charity collaborations are such a good idea as its such an easy way to donate and show support. The inspiration for the campaign simply came from how there has been so much bad crap happening in the world this year and how peace needs to be spread through out the world and I could not agree more.

The two designs I'm eyeing up is the Santa Cruz and Ksubi designs. I think I'm going to go with the Santa Cruz one. I've always wanted a basic Santa Cruz T and I think this is a pretty acceptable reason to get one. I'm also grabbing myself one of these pins.

Which one are you guys going to get your hands on????

Alexander Wang X H&M

So the most highly anticipated H&M and designer collaboration ever has finally hit stores. I can only imagine how crazy the atmosphere was. I know they keep the shopping organized by only letting a certain amount of shoppers in for 20 minutes at a time, but I bet in the line ups there were some desperate shoppers ready and willing to throw a punch, minus the Wang boxing gloves, to make sure they got something. 
When I first heard of this collaboration I was so excited as Alex is one of my favourite designers and H&M one of my favourite stores. But I'll admit when I saw the previews and early releases starting to appear online I wasn't really feeling the vibe he was going with. I think maybe because the early release pictures were pretty much just boxing gloves and it wasn't what I was expecting.
Slowly and steadily as more items and pictures were released and finally the fashion show, I can assure you I would have been in that line 2 days in advance if Brisbane had a H&M store. Sadly it doesn't so I can only pine over these pieces below that I would drop kick someone in store to get my hands on. At $69.95 for this scooba jumper and t-shirt dress, I would quite happily dish that amount of dollar out. I know they are pretty basic and I wouldn't normally spend that on a t-shirt no matter how long it is, but come on, its Alexander Wang. Its worth it.

That just reminded me. Whilst Brisbane is yet to get H&M (or Zara) its has been blessed to be the first city in Australia to get Forver21. It didn't realize it was opening so soon. For some reason I thought it would be next year. I need to get my tooshie down there pronto. Shopping date Ash
