Change Your Mind, Change Your Body

 

YOUR EDITOR FEELING THOSE SUMMER VIBES!

 
Elite athletes eat to fuel their bodies for optimal performance and inherently understand the concept that food is fuel. They generally don’t eat something just because it tastes good. They train their bodies like machines, and are not putting bad gas in the tank. Many of the rest of us, however, have gotten away from this basic concept. TV commercials tantalize with images of irresistible fat, sugar, and calorie-laden foods. We order what is most delicious on the menu. We fuel our mouths, but not our bodies.

Wouldn’t it be amazing if we all had the performance driven motivation of these athletes? What if it were effortless? For those trying to lose weight, it’s generally thought to be a matter of willpower to resist those foods that have put on the pounds. But what if those foods had no appeal, because not eating them felt so much better that eating them?

I recently shifted to a Paleo diet, which includes meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, and nuts — but no dairy and no grains. That means no bread, which I would have considered impossible a few months ago. But when replaced with delicious and satiating healthy fats like nuts, avocado, and coconut, the temptation has kind of disappeared — especially when my body has leaned out using its fat stores instead of sugar for fuel.

Stadium Goods x Sotheby’s

 

NIKE MOON SHOE CIRCA 1972

Coming off the success of its skateboard auction earlier this year, 20 Years of Supreme, Sotheby’s has partnered with another hypebeast brand in the upcoming auction, Stadium Goods:The Ultimate Sneaker Collection Online.

Stadium Goods is recognized as the world’s premier marketplace for the coveted sneakers that have become valuable collector’s items. From genre-defining collaborations with the most famous athletes, artists, and musicians, the culture of sneaker style has exploded into a worldwide phenomenon, and this first of its kind auction will feature the rarest of the rare.

The highlights (and most expensive) of the auction are considered to be the self-lacing 2016 Nike Mag Back To The Future, estimated to go for $50,000-80,000. This once-fictional sneaker worn by Marty McFly in Back To the Future Part 2 is one of only 89 pairs that were produced. From the most sought-after collection in recent years, there is the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 4 Friends & Family Collection, estimated at $45,000-60,000, that features five rare pairs designed by the multi-platinum rapper.

Lateral Objects

 

 

Production designer Stefan Beckman is highly sought-after by the world’s most prominent fashion brands, creating the sets and stages for such designers as Louis Vuitton, Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Coach, Tommy Hilfiger, and Bottega Veneta – just to name a few. Of note as well are his installations for adidas at Hypefest and ComplexCon — in addition to his editorial work for such publications as Vogue Italia, W, Love, and Interview.

Stefan’s latest project is one of his own creation, a home design line called Lateral Objects, which he has launched just in time for summer with a line of vibrant and sporty beach towels. It is just the first product in a series of home objects soon to come that will include beach umbrellas, glassware, trays, candles, matches, games, and more.

We caught up with Stefan to find out about his inspiration for Lateral Objects, as well as the hot summer pop-up he has curated, Heatwave, now open at Barney’s.

STYLE OF SPORT: How did Lateral Objects come to be?

STEFAN BECKMAN: I’ve always loved home design — furniture and accessories. I used to have a store in Soho called Property, and it just seemed like a natural thing for me to do. I love to challenge myself, and a lot of times I’ll take on projects I’ve never done. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t, but at least I’ve tried. I think the idea for the line is similar. It’s a broad category. I plan to do furniture and accessories, but if there is something interesting and inspiring to me, I can just do it.  Read More
