Dutch Police of Rotterdam will soon be able to confiscate your clothes if you can’t prove that you legally paid for them.
The new measure is geared toward young men in the designer or expensive-looking clothes that the police have reason to believe were stolen or bought using funds from criminal activities. They plan to undress them on the street.
Signals —-These are young people with no income, sometimes even debts from a previous conviction, but also wear an outfit that exceeds 1500 euros.
It’s not clear how police will decide if you bought your clothes legally. Nor is it clear whether the squad will be trained to spot rare Supreme, or if they’ll just be looking out for young men flexing a Rolex or a Gucci belt.
According to a spokesperson from the Rotterdam police, the program will only be brought in to Rotterdam West and is intended to only target a small group of men aged 16-30 who are already involved in crime. However, many residents have already expressed concerns about the city’s plans.
Some of the young interviewed cited worries about racial profiling, increased tensions with the police, and a reluctance to change how they dress. As one of our interviewees eloquently put it, “It’s not a crime if you are wearing a KILLER look.
The police must be fashion conscious
What they’re looking for :with this winter weather – for example – jackets from the Canada Goose and Woolrich brands of around 1,000 euros are particularly popular.
In the years that followed, the whereabouts of the shoes were unknown — until a friend of Leon Benrimon, director of modern and contemporary art at Heritage Auctions, found them at a garage sale in San Francisco.
Now, Heritage Auctions is auctioning off the pair at its Beverly Hills location. Bidding will begin at 11 am on June 11, and the sneakers are expected to go for at least $30,000. The starting bid will be $15,000. The Adidas sneakers, size 9 and a half, are made from the typical white leather material of the times. They feature Apple’s logo on the tongue and on the side. The soles are made from rubber that supposedly doesn’t leave skid marks.
The Zhor-Tech Digitsole heels come in two models: a pair with heated insoles and another pair with an adjustable, mechanical high heel. The heated insoles build on previous technology that Zhor-Tech has made under its Digitsole brand, whereas the adjustable heels are new. Both pairs also track your activity (of course!) and pair wirelessly with an app, where you can control the temperature or the height of your heels.
The adjustable high heels, which range from 1.7 inches high to 3.1 inches, are in theory a modern woman’s dream. Rather than schlepping around an extra pair of shoes — so when the high-heeled ones you feel obligated to wear start to hurt, you can slip into flats — you can just tap a virtual button and feel your heels sink closer to the earth. Sweet relief: there’s an app for that. However, the Zhor-Tech adjustable heels aren’t exactly elegant. They look like an exaggerated tap shoe, with a chunky metal stump protruding from the heel, and feel heavier than most normal pairs of heels.
Nokia-owned Withings, L’Oreal’s innovation lab and Kerastase, a high-end L’Oreal hair product brand, have just unveiled a Wi-Fi, Bluetooth-equipped hair brush that’s supposed to show you data on your hair-brushing habits and, in theory help you take better care of your hair. The high-tech hair brush has a microphone, so it can hear your hair-brushing patterns; an accelerometer and a gyroscope, commodity sensors that are supposed to analyze your brush strokes and patterns; load cells, otherwise known as transducers or sensors, that measure the pressure you’re applying to your hair; and conductivity sensors that are supposed to know whether you’re brushing dry or wet hair (shame on you). All of this data is shared wirelessly with a mobile app, of course.
