Holiday ‘20 @asvpxnvst

A post shared by The Elder Statesman (@theelderstatesman) on


Outside of a trippy color theme seen throughout, the set is primarily based around various forms of gaming throughout history. From knit sweaters inspired by UNO and Bingo to shirts and jackets that incorporate a checkers board theme, the fun and games inspo that inspired these garbs is quite apparent overall. The design story can be seen the details as well, particularly with buttons made to look like the cowrie shells used in India’s traditional game of Pachisi. While not exactly a “board game,” a cream-colored ouija board sweater seen on Nast definitely makes for one of the standout pieces. With eclectic prints, fun-filled motifs and a wide-ranging palette that goes from tie-dye to color-blocking, you’ll definitely have a good time mixing this collection into your summer wardrobe.

Grindstone Universal has been a fixture in the streetwear and casual wear fashion scene for years, and the DC-based operation has expanded the brand to global heights. A new shirt collection just dropped, featuring designs inspired by Cuba and its film culture, along with one piece with the likeness of Jean-Michel Basquiat as well.

The fresh new collection, titled “The Cuban Reflections,” is inspired by images taken by Grindstone’s lead designer after a recent trip to the island nation. The images have been artfully altered and spliced with Cuban movie posters, all with standout flair as the brand has long been known for.

Beyond “The Cuban Reflections” pieces, another shirt, “Fight For It,” is emblazoned with the late Basquiat on the front. The artwork for this piece was rendered by 19-year old Jada Smith, a DC-based hyper-realism portrait visual artist.

Nipsey and Puma had been in a partnership before his murder, and Petrick said the, “The concept of working with Nipsey just made sense.”

Petrick revealed that Puma still had unfinished business with Nipsey, and that they will continue to release product that he was associated with.

“We had a lot of things that were coming, and hopefully a lot of things we will still do with his estate. We’ll work with his family and we’ll support his kids,” Petrick revealed.

Rihanna Settles With Freedom United Clothing Brand Over F.U. Ripoff Allegations

Rihanna was locked in a legal tussle with the Freedom United clothing brand over the use of the F.U. logo on her Puma line. The singer and fashion maven settled with the company for an undisclosed amount, bringing the matter to an official close.

The Blast reports:

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, RiRi and the clothing company Freedom United have privately settled the case.

The judge then closed the case officially.

Last year, Freedom United sued Rihanna and claimed they have been making clothing with an “FU” logo since 2006 and even have it trademarked.

Freedom United said RiRi then launched her PUMA deal and began hawking items with a similar “F.U.” logo on her “Fenty University” clothing.

Rihanna is one to bigger and better things in the fashion world after it was recently announced that she’ll have her own line with the Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy Group.

Complex is reporting that the Harlem native is one of the faces for Calvin Klein’s newest #MyCalvins roll-out. Titled “I Speak My Truth” the campaign intends to inspire individuals from all backgrounds to express themselves in the name of art.

Propped in front of large flames of fire he stays true to his braggadocios swag with his confessional. “Growing up in New York City, I live life on the edge. So when it comes to sex, it ain’t no different than the streets. Keep that sh*t hot baby” he explained.

The second visual finds Lord Flacko flexing in front of a moving background sporting a white denim outfit; shirtless of course. He frames the clip with a drop straight out the Zoolander modeling school. “You ask my truth in two words, well that’s easy: ASAP Rocky.”

This is not the first time the “Peso” rapper has partnered with CK. In 2017 he and the rest of ASAP Mob team starred in a denim flavored shoot for the brand’s “Our Crew” initiative.

Holy Headlights: Cardi B’s Met Gala Outfit Featured $250K Ruby Nipple Covers

The 2019 Met Gala Celebrating Camp: Notes On Fashion - Arrivals

Source: Rabbani and Solimene Photography / Getty

Among the dazzling array of outfits and over-the-top looks at this year’s Met Gala event, Cardi B stood out in her blood red stunner of a dress. Featured in the outfit were some very expensive nipple coverings made from rubies valued at $250,000.

Page Six reports:

The rapper stunned the crowd at the 2019 Met Gala on Monday when she revealed that the Stéfère jeweled nipple covers on her Thom Browne gown cost a whopping $250,000.

“If I lose one of them, you know what I’m saying, Imma have to sell one of my Birkin bags,” she joked during an interview with Liza Koshy for Vogue.

The 44-carat rubies were designed by Stéfère jeweler Corina Mihaila Larpin, who contributed a few other gems to the camp-themed gala. She designed two diamond rings for Janelle Monáe’s Mad Hatter ensemble, as well as Zendaya’s Cinderella-inspired diamond choker and earrings.

Thankfully for Cardi, the nipple covers stayed put. Birkin bag safe and secure.

Met Gala 2019 Sparked Hilarious Memes & Reactions From The Twitterverse #MetGala

The 2019 Met Gala Celebrating Camp: Notes on Fashion - Street Sightings

Source: Ray Tamarra / Getty

The Met Gala has concluded and as always, the stars showed out with an array of over-the-top outfits and fashion choices as expected. This year’s event also sparked a hilarious number of memes and reactions from onlookers on social media, most especially Twitter.

This year’s theme was “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” inspired in part by writer and filmmaker Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on Camp.” Camp as a fashion aesthetic essentially puts the absurd over the practical and the bolder, the better, so many stars who walked the red carpet in last night’s Met Gala show were well prepared to wow the masses with their outfits.

From Billy Porter to Lupita Nyong’o, plenty of folks completely showed out. We don’t even want to know what Jared Leto was trying to pull off with the head accessory but we’re going to let him cook. Serena Williams kept it cute and comfortable with the sneakers and dress combo, and that’s just a small sampling of the fits on display.

We’ve collected the best memes and reactions of the Met Gala 2019 below.

All-White: Virgil Abloh’s Off-White™ Design Team Is Melanin Deficient

LVMH Prize 2019 Edition In Paris

Source: Bertrand Rindoff Petroff / Getty

2019 has been a very interesting year regarding cultural inclusion within luxury fashion houses. In a very interesting turn it seems like Virgil Abloh is the only brown skin person at his company.

The Chicago native has a bit of explaining to do. As reported by Refinery 29 the esteemed designer shared photos from a recent Off-White™ staff event. The gathering was an overdue holiday party for the crew which took place in Italy. While the gesture of thanking his team for a strong fourth quarter performance was well received the lack of diversity in his crew was glaring.

In several flicks we can see wine flowing throughout the room as several White employees smile with what we assume to be gratitude to be with a winning squad. But surprisingly there is not one person of color in sight. Considering that his pricey wears are so highly sought after in urban communities the absence of any Black employees is concerning for many. Naturally the Internets called Virgil out.

According to their mission statement the brand name is said to be “the grey area between black and white as the color off-white” to the fashion world. Clearly it is leaning towards ivory side of the scale.
