With Kithland, Ronnie Fieg Presents His Ultimate Collaboration

NEW YORK, United States — Streetwear wunderkind Ronnie Fieg is on the rise. His mini retail empire Kith is growing at a steady clip. Just three months after a $2 million renovation of his Brooklyn store, he quietly opened a cosy, 400-square-foot women’s store across the street from his Soho location, catering to a swelling cadre of female sneaker and street fashion devotees.

Spurred on by the global growth of labels like Supreme and the rise of Virgil Abloh’s street-influenced fashion line Off-White, a finalist in last year’s LVMH Prize, the expansion and legitimization of the streetwear movement started by companies like Stüssy has given birth to a lucrative space at the intersection of youth culture and high fashion.(VIA: BOF)

Grooming Secrets of the Famously Kept

As we've long suspected, the daily routines of well-groomed gents involve both upmarket products and drugstore staplesFashion is one thing. You wouldn't wear a $1,000 suit with a flimsy pair of lace-ups. Grooming is different. You can pick and choose what you value most. We love Tom Ford Neroli Portofino eau de parfum, for instance.

Luxe iPhone 7 By Goldgenie Can Already Be Pre-Ordered

The pre-orders are available for iPhone 7, 7 Plus and 7 Pro devices, which is odd because nobody even knows if the iPhone 7 Plus and Pro will actually become available anytime soon. In any case, when it comes to pricing,

Bella Hadid is hot. You know this. We know this. Bella Hadid knows this. And yet, she still manages to surprise us with her beauty every chance she gets. This happened most recently at the British GQ Men Of The Year Awards at the Tate Modern last night.


Though Willow Smith's edgy editorial spread for the upcoming issue of CR Fashion Book was revealed at the end of August, its cover star had yet to be named. But perhaps editor Carine Roitfeld was waiting it out until the first day of New York Fashion Week to unveil that said star is indeed Rihanna, whom she styled as a modern-day (read: blunt-smoking) Marie Antoinette.(Via fashionista)

Diddy and Jay Z Reign Supreme as Forbes' Highest-Paid Hip Hop Artists

They say mo' money, mo' problems, but not for these hip hop heavyweights. 

Forbes just released their annual list of the highest-paid acts in the musical genre, and for the second year in a row, Diddy comes out on top with a staggering $62 million in earnings over the past year. Trailing closely behind the rapper is none other than Jay Z, who managed to rake in $53.5 million in 2016 despite never having released an album. 

iPhone 7 Vs iPhone 7 Plus: What's The Difference?

Apple’s new iPhone 7 (single rear camera) and iPhone 7 Plus (dual rear cameras) are likely to be two of the biggest selling smartphones of 2016 and 2017. Image credit: Apple

It’s that time of year again: new iPhones. But the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are not like any previous Apple iPhone ‘number change’. Instead, from the outside, they look virtually identical to both the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus and iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. So are they a huge let down or not?

In short: yes and no. On the downside, the leaks proved almost 100% accurate so there were no surprises on the night. But the flip side is Apple has changed a lot internally and provided a major camera overhaul to both models.

So let’s break down the key differences to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus…

Next year, after Rita Ora fills her shoes at "ANTM," media and beautymogul Tyra Banks will help teach a business course for graduate students at Stanford University. The class, called "Project You: Building and Extending your Personal Brand," is run by management professor and former producer Allison Kluger, who tapped Banks as a co-lecturer after seeing the supermodel speak at an event for the university's Stanford Women in Businessorganization.


Hold up, there's new "Lemonade" merch
Just as we've begun to hit #peakmerch, OG merch purveyor Beyoncé dropped a second wave of "Lemonade"-inspired product that includes some pretty great iPhone cases, "dad hats" (their words, not ours) and cropped sweatshirts. { via High Snobiety}


Every time we start to think that MAC has already collaborated with every celebrity and entertainment franchise imaginable (Selena, Trolls, Ariana Grande, Star Trek — you get it), we're caught off guard by yet another genius partnership. The latest? Taraji P. Henson. Yes, MAC, yes.

Why Is Under Armour’s Olympic Star Wearing Nike on Sports Illustrated?

BALTIMORE, United States — Michael Phelps, the crown jewel of Under Armour’s Olympic athletes, is wearing Nike sweatpants, swoosh and all, on the cover of the latest Sports Illustrated magazine.
In the world of sports marketing, this constitutes a colossal screw-up. Superstar athletes — and their agents, managers, and marketing teams — are hyper-aware of what brands they wear, because they earn so much money from endorsements.

Vogue Paris to Launch Fashion Festival

PARIS, France — As audiences migrate online and advertisers shift their spend away from print magazines, major fashion publishers like Hearst and Condé Nast are increasingly extending their most popular brands into new areas of business, from events to education. Now, the French edition of Vogue, published by Condé Nast France, a division of Condé Nast International, is set to launch the inaugural Vogue Paris Fashion Festival, a two-day event that will sprawl through the gilded halls of the prestigious Hôtel Potocki on Avenue Friedland in Paris on November 4th and 5th.

This Graphic Logo Tee Is About To Be Everywhere

If you think that graphic T-shirts are just for kids, think again. They're hands down one of the biggest things going in fashion, something that both popular skate brands and high-end luxury houses have tackled, and their popularity only seems to be growing as we look to fall and winter.
Take, for example, Years and Years frontman Olly Alexander who brought the crowd to its feet at the V Festival in England while wearing a white vintage-style logo T-shirt from Gucci's resort 2017 collection.

While this logo shirt is a brand new drop from the brand (sadly it hasn't surfaced to buy online quite yet), the current Gucci craze has caused a noticeable uptick in vintage logo tees from the brand. Justin Theroux found his own badass version and sported it earlier this summer. Jared Leto and Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele both wore the logo hoodies recently, and versions were spotted on the street at the recent menswear shows in Europe.

A quick search shows that that vintage versions of the shirt are hard to come by, even on resale meccas like Grailed and eBay, which must mean the retro versions are in high demand. So keep hitting refresh on for the new version, which should hit the shelves any day now.
