Sneaker Gimmicks by LG

LG’s internal research found that these ‘sneakerheads’ would benefit greatly from a solution that 
not only made their cherished shoes stand out more, but also provided them with the optimal care.
With this eye opening revelation they started working on a product I am not sure the world needs, 
except if you are intending to invest in storage rather than your collection: 
The LG Styler™ ShoeCase and ShoeCare was just introduced at the IFA 2022.
Equipped with the company’s hygiene-enhancing TrueSteam™ technology, LG’s total shoe 
care solution offers a customized shoe management.
LG Styler ShoeCase with transparent panels is a solution for shoe storage and showcasing shoes. 
In addition to creating the ideal environment for storing shoes by protecting against humidity 
and fabric-discoloring UV light,1 the Styler ShoeCase represents a great way for shoe enthusiasts 
to show-off their favorite pairs, offering interior features such as a 360-degree rotating turntable 
and a modular design that makes it possible to stack up to four cases on top of one another.
Also making its debut at IFA, a clothing care solution with steam technology, LG Styler ShoeCare 
employs the company’s proven TrueSteam technology to deliver a ‘refreshing’ shoe management 
It also leverages the Zeo-Dry filter’s absorbent properties of zeolite to soak up moisture and 
help remove smells from footwear, making shoes more pleasant to wear and to have around.
Moreover, the new LG Styler ShoeCare solution optimizes the management of various shoe types, 
including leather, suede and sports footwear, with its 10 different courses.
Depending on the type and fabric of the shoe, it controls its use of TrueSteam to refresh the shoe.

My 80s Obsessions

I have an obsessiv nature. It's all or nothing. Perfectionism is one side of this medal, loosing 
myself in details is a weird form of bliss.
Most of you know I have a sneaker obsession, but my nerdism does not stop there.
I have a penchant for most elements of the 80s especially with a HipHop history (Double Goose 
jackets, Cazal sunglasses, jewelry like namerings, cookie chains and grills, boomboxes and so on).

Here's an obsession which's seedling was planted in my teenage years, when I first watched it 
and has developed to a force in the past decade : AKIRA by Katsuhiro Otomo. 
It is the film I have probably watched the most in my life together with FANTASIA (another 
masterpiece, but from a much earlier era) and will never be able to stop praising.
It's my go-to watch if I am too lazy to decide on a movie and my favorite clothing inspo forever.

For me Katsuhiro Otomo is a genius of style and details, so it never gets boring to enjoy it over 
and over and over again.
This love for details 
frame composition in a movie I found in the work of masterminds like Akira 
Kurosawa, makes my heart sing.
The impeccable Japanese cool of Kaneda gives me the best neo-Steve McQueen vibes.

Here are some original drawings and cells from the production, which are so amazing in my 
opinion, that I must share them

Show love
