Reebok and Daniel Moon indulge in colour with Major Reebok capsule collection

Filed by Lucire staff/June 18, 2021/21.48





Daniel Moon, the proprietor of Hair Los Angeles and one of the world’s best known colourists, has brought his love of colour into a capsule-collection collaboration with Reebok, dubbed Major Reebok, releasing on June 24.
   Major comes from Moon’s nickname, Major Moon, referencing his time in the US Marine Corps, and has appeared on some of his products already, including the Major Apron and Major Moonshine, a hair glitter product.
   The collection features a new take on Reebok’s Classic Leather Legacy and Club C Legacy designs.
   Moon, known for encouraging distinctive hair colours for self-expression, aligns with Reebok’s plans to be inclusive.
   ‘The sock liner of the Classic Leather Legacy is a photograph of an actual hair piece that I worked on,’ said Moon. ‘It serves as a blueprint of the shoes.’
   The Classic Leather Legacy’s colour palette was inspired by his most requested hair colours, and the leather material reminds him of a shaved head, says Reebok.
   The Club C Legacy’s bright green and pink colours ‘represent the same feeling of hyper freedom that my hair art brings to my clients. They instantly go in your bloodstream and change your mood to a new tier of exaggerated fun,’ he says.
   The Major Reebok Classic Leather Legacy retails for US$80 and the Club C Legacy for US$100. Both include one pair of fuzzy laces. Sizes range from US 3½ to 15.

Backyard or beach, Protest Sportswear shows the spirit of travel for summer ’21

Filed by Lucire staff/May 27, 2021/11.34




Protest Sportswear shows that you can’t stop imagination from travelling to exotic locales, whether you’re destined for the backyard or the beach. And for summer 2021, it’s the shores of Bali and Hawai‘i that beckon, with the Dutch brand’s range of dresses, bikinis and other essentials.
   Key to this season are a number of designs. There are great prints as one would expect from Protest, this season with some small floral designs and textured prints. There’s a larger tropical print with its MM Offshore bikini, and some eye-catching stripes. Protest sees layering as part of the summer look, with the Leni tiered dress and the Hope layered skirt. The Heaven bikini has ruffled straps, while the Kitty bikini has a button-down front. They’ve used Lurex on straps for shine, to lift the two colour palettes they’ve employed: earthy tones (sandstone, clay, and warm yellow, contrasted by coral) and candy tones (pink, mint, and icy tellow, matched with black, white and grey).
   Visit Protest Sportswear at protest.eu, or find them on Instagram at @protestwomen.
