Jeremy Scott is set to launch his second collaboration with Adidas Originals. The collection will be released February 1st and will range in price from $120 to $250 for a pair. The shoes will be available in select boutiques and a month later at Adidas Original stores. I’m going crazy over the gold winged kicks, but they all look seriously hot.

Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci designed two outfits, Tom Ford provided bespoke suits, 3 pairs of shoes were custom made by Miu Miu, thigh-high boots came from Stella McCartney, sunglasses are by Moschino and other outfits were created by Yves Saint Laurent, Roberto Cavalli and Jeremy Scott.

A majority of the tour dates have sold out but some dates are still available.

New Clothing Lines: MIA and Justice Design Clothes

Is there anything this girl can’t do? From modeling in Marc Jacobs ads to donating money to build a school in Africa, and, oh yeah, making two of the most critically acclaimed albums of the last few years. Lets hope the retirement rumors that were started at Bonnaroo and have yet to be denied are false.

But it looks like the next release from M.I.A. will be a clothing line, which has been rumored for some time since when she’s not wearing Jeremy Scott onstage she is rocking her own designs. If you go to her site, there is a video that appears to be an advertisement for her clothing line with the tag line “coming soon.” The clothes look Bright, Bold and Brash, which is exactly what you would expect from M.I.A. According to the site, the line will have a limited run.

Here are some photos of Oakley Leslie rocking what might be the much rumored M.I.A. line:

And speaking of another critically-acclaimed artist getting into the designing world, get ready to rock your favorite electro stars Justice’s new line. They have crafted leather jackets and jeans with Surface to Air, which can be purchased at select boutiques as well as on the Surface to Air site. But looking like your favorite French electro duo isn’t going to come cheap as the leather jackets will set you back a cool 800 euro’s.
