A collection of Al-generated Nike trainers has been designed and debuted online by @ai_clothingdaily, an Instagram account run by @luckynumber.8.  Each look takes a familiar silhouette from the Swoosh collection, giving them a frilly, lacey, kawaii makeover – that Marie Antoinette would approve of. Some sneakerheads have likened it to a Simone Rocha collab.

A big misunderstanding

A pair of confused police officers broke into Laz Emporium, a London gallery last week, under the misunderstanding that a sculpture of a rather unconscious woman was a real person in need of help. The sculpture, “Kristina” (2022) by American artists Mark Jenkins, shows a life-sized woman with long, blonde hair and a yellow hood slouched over a table with her head in a bowl of soup. “The work is to provoke and it’s definitely achieving that,” said a gallery employee.
