Hi you guys!
We're back again to serve you a handful dose of fashion inspiration, and today's special on our inspiration-menu list is the sporty street style from one of our premium brand, Y-3. Before we begin to feed your fashion-eyes (and brain), we think it is wiser to explain this premium brand named Y-3.

Yohji's design and look is always avant-garde and somehow removed from seasonal trends. His signature style of combining oversized garments with black and/or staple shades, along with Adidas signature style of innovative and athleticism, creates a unique narrative look of futuristic sport style. Y-3 is a one inspirational fusion of fashion and sport.
"THE Y STANDS FOR YOHJI YAMAMOTO. THE 3 REPRESENTS ADIDAS’ THREE SIGNATURE STRIPES AND THE – SIGNIFIES THE BOND BETWEEN THE TWO."

You know how movies can inspire us so much in fashion and lifestyle, right? So on today's post, we would like to share and nominate five upcoming movies for this Spring that we think has the most stylish wardrobe and costumes by far this year. We nominate the best as the first, and you guys are invited to nominate or rate them by yourself, and tell us on the comment form below. ;)
1# Mirror Mirror
It's one out of three films that brings about the famous cartoon fairy-tales into a life motion picture event this year. Featuring Lily Collins, Arnie Hammer and Julia Roberts, this movie about the legendary tale is retold in a 'witty buts still pretty' kind of ways. A film critics, Richard Roeper (RichardRoeper.com), said that this movie is a 'trippy version of the Snow White story'. But what we captured the most is the amazing pretty and well-tailored gown and dresses wore by the queen and princess on the movie.
On one scene, magnificent hairstyles also appears with stylish costumes applicable to the legendary tale itself. Then, we accidentally realized that there is one hairstyle performed on a male figure in the movie that pretty much similar with a model seen after runway on last Paris Fashion Week!
2# Snow White and the Huntsman
This second version of Snow White tale that are brought into a movie this year, is darker and more thrilling in story. If Mirror-Mirror offers a pretty dress upon the feminist concessions, this one movie offers an action-adventure of the Snow White, played by Kristen Stewart, and The Huntsman, played by Chris Hemsworth, to fight againts the evil queen played by the amazing Charlize Theron. We found that the black dress wore by the queen, Charlize Theron, is so wickedly stunning! Not to mention her perfect hairstyle match her high collar sequined dress. If you need inspiration on metal trends for this Spring, you should see this movie. We mean, metalic trends and feathers? Très chic combo!!
3# Tonight You're Mine
Music festival and fashion? It's always been a super stylish twosome. This movie is a free-wheeling rock 'n' roll story set against the raucous magnificence and unforgettable sounds at a leading music festival, The T in the Park festival in Kinross-shire, Scotland. You could see some urban and chic street wear in this movie. Even the guy is so stylish!
4# The Five-Year Engagement
Now this movie is a must to watch this Spring with you boyfriend/girlfriend. It's a super funny duo of comedian Jason Segel and the beautiful Emily Blunt. Better yet, this romantic-comedy movie is written and produced by the team who created and wrote Forgetting Sarah Marshall. We rated this movie stylish based on what Emily Blunt wore on the night she got proposed by Jason Segel. From head to toe, is just mega chic!
5# Bel Ami
This movie takes us into a fashion in Paris by the year of 1890s, from cockroach ridden garrets to opulent salons. The detail of each wardrobe is plain amazing. The outfit by Robert Pattinson surly will capture us the most. 19th century Paris fashion is surely hyped!!
So, what do you think? Rate yourself and comment below! ;)
