Timberland is creating a limited line of boots endorsed by the ex-Beatle Ringo Starr. These 75 pairs of boots, dubbed Earthkeepers, will bear an autograph from Ringo himself and will only be available in his shoe size (8).
These boots are made of Bionic Canvas, which is a type of yarn created from cotton-wrapped strands of recycled plastic from soda bottles. This combination makes the textile much more water-resistant, durable and environmentally friendly.
An auction for these shoes will begin on December 1st, 2011 at 9pm EST on eBay. The proceeds of the auction will be going to WaterAid, a charity dedicated to providing clean water to the poorest countries.

Fashion Night Out, Sept 8, 2011, marked the start of New York Fashion Week, and was filled with lots of exciting fashion shows by many designers. Flocks of bright colors, and patterns came streaming down the runway in interesting cuts and silhouettes in many of the shows. There was a variety of pinks, reds, oranges, purples, greens, blues, yellows, geometric shapes, African prints, floral, stripes; and the list go on and on.
Some of the designers blended it in with softer shapes and neutral colors to ease the transition, while others were bold and let it take the spotlight. Either way, it’s a nice, fresh look for the upcoming Spring 2012 season. How would you be bright and bold for the next season? Would you pair it with your jeans, match with bright accessories, or take center stage with a bright pop dress?
100 years of fashion in 100 seconds; if all history classes were taught this way, it sure would make it easier to memorize all the facts. This cute and delightful clip of the couple dancing through 10 decade’s worth of fashion is definitely mesmerizing.
I had the clip on replay a few times just to watch the outfits, hairstyles, dance and music morph over and over again. Who else also caught how the female dancer blew a goodbye kiss to the guy in the 40s Wartime segment as he left the screen? A fun touch in between all the outfit changes.
Interesting how the history lesson starts on September 13, 1911 and ends on September 13, 2011. Why those dates? This clip, directed by Jake Lunt with The Viral Factory, was actually created for East London’s new Westfield Startford City Mall’s opening on September 13, 2011. What an amazingly clever and fun advertisement.
From the 1910’s Edwardian style to the 50’s Glamour to the modern trendy looks, what was your favorite decade of fashion?
