British-born artist, M.I.A., has long been a favourite of ours as much for her cutting edge style as her anthemic party-starter tracks including ‘Boyz’, ‘Paper Planes’ and ‘Bamboo Banga’.
No stranger to ‘controversy’ M.I.A. isn’t afraid to exhibit behaviours and put out videos which, shall we say, inspire conversation, heh. Who could forget the video of the ginger people getting blown up in a minefield? (Link posted at the end of the blog)
Guesting on Madonna’s track ‘Give me all your Luvin’ and performing at the Super Bowl are clear indications that Maya has moved into the next tier as an international artist, but her newest video, Bad Girls, is a real work of art. Enjoy!
Something that caught our eye this week was an interesting shoe designed by Cole Haan.
Did you spot the difference? The shoe on the right is a classic wingtip …with Nike Lunarlon in place as the sole. A novel idea if ever we saw one! What do you think of the design and would you WEAR them? (Thanks to Sneaker Freaker for the images)
Putting unusual materials together can naturally spawn some interesting and creative results, though as this video shows, some results are destined to remain conceptual!

Stay fresh until next time, Folks, and no, we did not forget the link to the ‘Ginger Genocide’ video mentioned above. It’s here.
