CANDI COVERAGE: Wish x Matthew Senna Presents: “Higher Learning: Study 001″

On Friday May 1st, 2015 sneaker connoisseurs and art lovers of Atlanta gathered at Wish to view the dope artwork of Matthew Senna surrounding the foundation of the Air Jordan 1 and other selected Retros. When gold meets one of the best retro kicks ever expect greatness to take place. I am glad I was able to experience the dopeness up close and personal.


Early arrival was suggested to anyone interested in attending the exclusive event. I jumped in line around 6:30pm to ensure entry. Being in the building was a must since I am a lover of the AJ1. The sleekness of the shoe and not to mention it being a classic staple to any true sneakerhead’s collection.


The event ran smoothly, the doors opened promptly at 7pm. The staff wore all white with WISH t-shirts that had gold lettering in support of the study 001 gold event. There was a lot of different sneaker heat in the building. You guys already know the Yeezy boost would be on the feet of a kick addict. I even spotted the Red Octobers.



For my readers that aren’t hip to WISH, its a dope boutique in Atlanta with exclusive Streetwear Clothing and Shoes including t-shirts, jeans, sneakers, hoodies, hats. I’ve been a fan since they were located on Euclid Ave in Little Five Points. The growth of the business is evident.



Circo Vodka was served during the event. I headed to the back to get my ciroc mixed with pineapple juice and ya girl was ready to mingle.

S/0 To Diddy -:)


The exhibit was set up downstairs and yes security was on deck. The artist responsible for the piece was there along with Fashion stylist/influencer Renaldo Nehemiah. Senna and Nehemiah came together to collaborate on 10 pairs of the 24k gold Air Jordan 1. The piece is heavy and I was super nervous to hold it.



Everyone that came in contact with the art was required to put on white gloves.


I was able to get a picture with the duo and ask Matthew a few questions. For those who aren’t familiar with the artist and may have seen the 24k AJ1’s on Instagram or online. Matthew Senna is a conceptual artist and designer living in Los Angeles. He’s inspired by culture and politics, Matthew’s works are created with the intention of sparking thought, raising awareness of cultural issues and inspiring personal growth.


If you visit Matthew’s website you’ll discover that he has Jordan art pieces that he calls “Studies” from 1’s -13’s. The difference between his latest study and the previous pieces is that they are all bronzed opposed to gold.



I asked the artist why the Jordan brand? He stated;

“Its a cultural shoe. It connects the people”


And I totally agree with him. I was also glad to learn that his favorite jordans were the 11’s. NICE!!!


Great event at WISH ATL. Be sure to visit the store when in ATL or check them out online.

    August 2011 I launched Addicted2Candi.com with full force. I was excited to post, I was eager to see my traffic numbers weekly. All this occurred before social media took off. Then Instagram arrived and everybody and their mother wanted to be a "Blogger."
    When I first started I was totally against being called a blogger, because at the time bloggers were messy and posted negative gossip. That was never my thing. I am more of the Fashion x Music served with lite tea site. As Instagram popularity continued to grow I was more focused on posting daily there than on my site. I worked hard to achieve a following even though most of my followers just looked and never liked....lol. On August 11th, 2017 Instagram deleted my page for the second time. It happened in 2013 and then again a few weeks ago. I was totally hurt by the action especially since I am unsure why it was deleted.
    So I have decided to refocus my energy on my merchandise TheAddictedLife I'll continue to blog here and there but I'm bigger than just being a "Blogger." Branding Addicted2Candi is so much more than that. So maybe the universe is telling me to reroute to fulfill my dreams. For anyone that enjoyed my few podcast shows, I am releasing a new podcast this month. I have so much in store for myself and all of my supporters.
    Ladies please be sure to cop your Dope Chick With Ambition T- Shirt via wwww.TheAddicted.Life.com. My goal is to be a millionaire in this lifetime and that's what I am going to achieve. Don't ever give up on your dreams. But when necessary reroute and attempt to achieve your goals another way. And remember
    "Real ones may fall back but they never fall off!"
    Be sure to follow my merchandise page @ShopTheAddictedLife and Personal Page @Addicted2Candi on the gram.

    MAC Cosmetics has announced that next summer they'll be releasing a brand new collection inspired by R&B star Aaliyah. I know Aaliyah's fans are going crazy being that today is the eve of the singer's death and they went super hard, creating a petition and all to make this happen.
aaliyah
    The Makeup brand wrote on their Instagram
    "Aaliyah is truly one in a million—an unstoppable icon whose groundbreaking work in R&B music and film inspires us all," "Today we join her countless fans in celebrating her with the announcement of the M·A·C Aaliyah collection. You made it happen! Stay tuned in 2018."
    Get your coins ready folks! I'm sure this collection will sell out quickly!
