Travis Scott sent the sneaker world scrambling when he shared an initial image of the collab on his Instagram story (no fair) and share more pics of himself stuntin’ in pair. Must be nice.

“I love mixing together different worlds, different ideas — and Jordan Brand and Maison Dior are both emblematic of absolute excellence in their fields,” says Maison Dior and Dior men Artistic Director Kim Jones of the shoe via a press statement. “To bring them together in this special collaboration is to propose something exciting and truly new.”

We wouldn’t exactly call it new since it’s base is the ubiquitous Air Jordan 1 and mixing streetwear and high fashion damn sure isn’t a novel. But the collab does feature some smooth flourishes like “Dior Air” replacing the usual “Nike Air” on the tongue, Air Dior getting placed in the Jumpman Wings logo and the Nike Swoosh being treated in “Dior Oblique jacquard.” Also, the shoe is made out of fine calf-leather, akin to Dior leather goods.

Rumor is a pair of the limited-edition kicks will cost you a cool $2000 when it’s available in Dior stores next year (April 2020). Good hunting and check out detailed pics below.

In more Megan Thee Stallion news, the champion of Hot Girls everywhere continues to secure the bag. Coach revealed that the Houston rapper is one of the many faces of its latest ad campaign.

The 24-year-old “Big Ole Freak” rapper stars in Coach’s new “Wonder For All” campaign. She is not the only big name involved either, Yara Shahidi, Spike and Tonya Lee, Camila Morrone, Miles Heizer, Kate Moss, and more are also featured. In her ad, Megan sits atop a carousel horse (how fitting), while rocking a black patent leather trench coat, over-the-knee boots, with her extra-long braid in one hand a Coach’s gold rivet-studded “Tabby” bag in the other.

The bag is priced at $395 if you were wondering.

The fashion campaign marks a first for Megan and joins the list of growing accomplishments the rapper has accomplished in a short period. She has already won an MTV VMA, successfully trademarked “Hot Girl Summer,” signed a management deal with Roc Nation, co-headlined a tour with Future and Meek Mill, earned a platinum plaque for “Cash Sh*t.” Plus, she just revealed she is currently working on a script for a horror movie and dropped her own YouTube series “HOTTIEWEEN,” which she starred in. All the while still being in college working on that degree.

One of New York City’s most noted destinations is being brought to life for the new generation. A new clothing collection is being released in honor of Brooklyn’s most iconic cultural institution.

Only NY has announced a collaborative collection with the Brooklyn Museum. Working with the museum’s archives and merchandising team, Only NY was granted access to The Brooklyn Museum’s extensive history of exhibition posters, curiosities, and memorabilia, collected and commissioned by the museum during its near 200 year history. With access to this catalog, Only NY gravitated toward the museum’s rich history of logos, branding, and design ephemera.

Pyer Moss’ Kerby Jean-Raymond Slams ‘Business of Fashion’s’ Inclusivity, Mag Responds

Aliette - Front Row - September 2019 - New York Fashion Week: The Shows

Source: Yuchen Liao / Getty

Fashion’s go to trade magazine is under fire and for all the right reasons. One of the game’s hottest designers has them under pressure.

Hypebeast is reporting that Business of Fashion, the world’s leading trade publication on fashion, has admitted they have some work to do. Earlier this week the editorial staff announced their annual #BoF500, a list that names the top 500 most influential people. The lineup included Kerby Jean-Raymond, founder of menswear label Pyer Moss. He has since declined the recognition due to their insensitivity at their accompanying BoF‘s 500 in Paris and then some.

Raymond wrote a lengthy letter on Medium accusing the staff and industry as a whole of cultural appropriation. “Homage without empathy and representation is appropriation” he declared. “Instead, explore your own culture, religion and origins. By replicating ours and excluding us — you prove to us that you see us as a trend. Like, we gonna die black, are you.”

Naturally the intensive piece circulated quickly forcing Business Of Fashion editor-in-chief Imran Amed to respond.

Amed made it clear that Raymond is not alone. “Kerby has every right to voice his concerns and we respect his perspective. He is also right about several things. As Kerby points out, the fashion industry has often treated inclusivity as a trend, putting diverse faces in our ad campaigns, on our runways, on our magazine covers and, yes, at our parties because it’s cool and of the moment. But I can assure you that this topic is not a trend for BoF” he wrote.

Over the last year, several high-profile brands have been guilty of incorporating culturally insensitive imagery. This specifically caused Gucci to create more opportunities for people of color after their infamous sweater that resembled blackface imagery. You can read Amed’s formal response in full here.

Dapper Dan Discusses Harlem, His Legacy And More In New Interview

Dapper Dan’s affect on fashion can’t be denied. We get a better insight into what makes him tick in a new interview.

High Snobiety did a profile on the iconic tailor prior to him releasing his memoir Dapper Dan: Made in Harlem. The fashion site sat down with him and got him to detail his perspective on several aspects of life including his historic hometown, influencing Hip-Hop fashion, his take on music, breakfast, the deal with Gucci and more.

On A$AP Ferg

“I mentored his father, and after he passed away, I’d never seen the son [A$AP Ferg] since he was very little. One day I’m going to the store across from my house, and I see these guys jump out of the car. One walks over and tells me his father had told him all about me and that he’s been looking for me for two years. This was like four years ago. We’ve been together virtually every chance we got since then.”

On The Beatles

“The Beatles are really big to me, and I talk about them a lot because they’re the height of rock and roll. Appropriation in a good sense is what the Beatles did. They took all musical platform sand challenged the social standard of European culture. And that’s the message. The Beatles went into India and brought back the Maharishi. Deepak Chopra, who is the extension of that, teaches that philosophy today, but the Beatles initiated that.”

On Pancakes

“Pancakes are amazing. I always get upset about pancakes because they’re easy to mess up. But the pancakes I ate last night were really, really thin and perfect. It’s 4 a.m. in the morning and I can’t sleep because I’m reading, and these pancakes were so perfect that I had to text [my grand kids] and tell them how amazing these pancakes with syrup were. After I ate them, I felt like I could speak Italian. But this morning I was upset because I was looking forward to the pancakes again, so I had ordered them again but they were too thick. I said the chef must have taken the day off today.”

On Inclusivity

“Inclusivity is that which goes beyond tokenism. Inclusivity and cultural inclusion have to create an opportunity that levels the playing field. So when you come in there’s got to be room for you to expand and room for you to grow based on your ability. I don’t want nobody buying anything that I made because I’m black, I want it to be because of the idea. On the other side of the fence, I don’t want anyone taking my ideas without them allowing me to make something of it.”

On Cultural Appropriation

“The infusion of cultures has allowed us to have an appreciation for all cultures across the playing field. The biggest problem comes when you have people who don’t understand symbols. Something isn’t just [a button] it’s much bigger than that. I don’t see how [people] could miss it, they just don’t think about it. Whether it’s either a cross or the star of David, all these symbols have a powerful effect, so you have to understand that people take symbols very seriously.”

Karl Kani Is Releasing A 90’s Inspired Collection [Photos]

KARL KANI FALL WINTER 2019 COLLECTION

Source: KARL KANI / JULIEN BOUDET / KARL KANI / JULIEN BOUDET

Few brands can say with certainty that they were synonymous with Rap’s golden era. Karl Kani is taking his line back to his gritty roots.

High Snobiety is reporting that the Brooklyn bred designer has dropped a collection that is a nod to his noteworthy beginnings. His fall winter 2019 drop screams 90’s Hip-Hop culture with color block schemes and original oversized logos. Additionally the pieces, which include t-shirts, windbreakers, baggy denim and accessories, align with current streetwear trends.

Originally launched in 1989 the Karl Kani brand would go on to be one of the hottest fashion lines inspired by Hip-Hop culture. So much so the clothing was heavily bootlegged which forced him to change the logo to a metal plate. A who’s who of artists, including Nas, 2Pac, Puff Daddy, Notorious B.I.G. and Aaliyah, all sported the gear during their heyday.

You can view more photos from the upcoming collection below.

The North Face Brings Back The ’95 Denali Fleece [Photos]

The North Face Denali 95 fleece

Source: The North Face / The North Face

Certain pieces from the late 90’s come to mind for Hip-Hop fashion horses from the era—a North Face bubble jacket, Timbs and hoodies, for example. A more nuanced item heads will surely remember is The North Face‘s Denali fleece, which has just returned to retail.

Originally intro’d in 1988 as a zip-in fleece for the Mountain Jacket, the item soon became a staple for cooler months for those up on Tents & Trails (NYC reference, and RIP). The new drop is the ’95 take and still looks crispy, and is still made from recycled fleece.

“Perhaps no single piece of apparel represents authentic outdoor culture more completely than the Denali,” Tim Hamilton, Global Creative Director, The North Face, via a press statement. “It’s synonymous with The North Face and has stood the test of time to become a truly legendary item, keeping its rebellious, pioneering spirit for the modern urban adventurer.”

Facts.

Available in black, red, green, purple and blue, you can cop the Denali fleece at www.thenorthface.com/ and at select The North Face stores.
