Wrapping up the designs for my RDQLUS x NIKEiD custom, these are the final three designs that I will choose from. Vastly different in look, each has a much different backstory and very particular ideas on how I'd wear them.
Matching the color it's namesake's garb but contrating their demeanor, the "Shao Lin Monk" is brash and flashy. This look is a kick to the door of any room I'd walk into, speaking loudly and letting people know, "Yes yes, I'm here for that attention… lavish it upon me!" (Most who know me, are giggling right now)
Equally as eye-catching—but far more soothing to that eye, once caught—the "Jewelry Box" is pure silk. Draped in a sea-foam "aqua" color reminicent of "Tiffany & Co.", this version would palette-appropriate thru the spring & summer, and a cheekily brazen stand-out as a stopped for photo opps at "Fashion Week." Turning stylish heads in a sneaker? Yeah, that's just the way I like it.
Now, while I'm no "shrinking violet" when it comes to the spotlights of attention beaming my way, I'd like to think that I can play it equally as classy—even in a pair of "kicks." The "BLAQ TIE Affair" version of the Jordan 2012 is a lock for those red-carpet moments and times when you have to get your "grown" on, and step that style game up more than a couple of notches. Trust, I have a feeling you'll see me in these eventually—no matter what.
I'm leaning heavily toward the "Jewelry Box" & the "BLAQ TIE," but right when I think I have it nailed I imagine the "Shao Lin" stomping hot summer concrete! I have to decide by the end of this week… any input?
