Ray Caesar’s The Four Elements by Hobbs & Kent are available at Ex. Arte. I am not sure how we missed these but, they are very cool. Especially if you’re a fan. Here’s the brief….
“Women have always been the artist’s muse. It is thus fitting to view four of Ray Caesar’s iconic women to embody the universal characters of humanity as rooted in The Four Elements – Fire, Air, Earth and Water. The concept of the classical elements representing the realms of the cosmos wherein all things exist and whereof all things consist has proved extremely persistent in all cultures from antiquity to the present, influencing disciplines as widespread as medicine and astrology. It is a concept that will continue to make lasting impressions upon the human psyche, as do the women of Ray Caesar. After all, it is a little like looking at ourselves, but with all our fears and passions revealed.”
You can buy each element or you can buy a set of four.

Adidas originals are just that, original. It has been trendy for a while to wear sneakers with suits. It’s not a new idea, but if you’re going to rock that style make sure your choice of sneaker is original, and simple. Please do not where trainers. Think of them as a dress shoe with a rubber soul (not a prada). A solid color usually works best.
