Playmakers Part II
Was able to drop by last night and on the way felt a bit of the holiday spirit on the way to Niketown's event Playmakers which was kicking off the season with Nike's holiday collection of sportswear at the 5th floor.
Wermser opened the set and DJ Just Blaze was on the 1's & 2's to finish the night off.
Checked out the scene nearby with Cgod on our way and got stopped by some Japanese Reporter on what the meaning of the snowflake means to me, which I felt was to lift the spirits of New Yorkers for the holidays that are coming and also to encourage the spirit of shopping for tourists but I did some research and found out that the snowflake actually has a much deeper meaning.
It is actually the UNICEF Snowflake
There are actually two of them one in New York City and one on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills,CA
The snowflake actually symbolizes the world's most vulnerable children.
It is a reminder of UNICEF’s commitment to reach a day when zero children die from preventable causes.
The crystals in the snowflake represent an inspired community who will forever take care of the world's children.
Louis Vuitton store had quite cosmetic look for this season.
Stopped by the Fifth floor and checked out 3 private collections
Not sure what this seamless Dunk was, but someone just told me on Sneakerplaythat these came out earlier this year and are called the Nike Dunk High Supreme - Olympic Octodot Pack and supposedly they released some through Bodega and possibly at the Rivington Club.
