Rumored Drop of Cactus Jack x Fragment x Air Jordan 1 Highs July 29

rumored fragment Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Release Date 1

Travis Scott and fashion are seemingly hand-and-hand now. If the ASTROWORLD rapper isn’t making hits, he’s making fits.

Fresh from his Pop Smoke-inspired Dior collaboration, it’s alleged that the Houston rap fashionista is dropping a new version of his Cactus Jack 1s. 

According to the respectable shoe platform Sneaker Newsit’s rumored that the high-top Fragment Travis Scott Air Jordan 1’s will drop on July 29. 

The Fragment 1’s, which is a combination of the Japanese musician Hiroshi Fujiwara and La Flame’s respective designs on the ubiquitous silhouette, is the sequel to his May 2019 drop. 

Last week, images of the shoe surfaced on the web. The shoe features a premium tumbled leather upper in white but is paired with Fragment’s signature blue accents and the large reverse Swoosh on the sides pulled from Scott’s pair. Adding to the design is the duo’s logos stamped on the heel while a sail midsole and a blue outsole sit underneath.

Sneaker News said, “This triumvirate of designer, entertainer, and brand will go down as one of the year’s best releases, and with a rumored release date of July 29th, this drop will stand as one of the most important of the year and of Travis Scott’s ever-growing catalog of Nike/Jordan collabs.”

Cactus Jack’s merchandise has been a hot commodity and the hypebeast and sneaker resellers will make it difficult to cops these drops. However based on past performance and a loaded product page on Scott’s online shop, there’s speculation that an early raffle for the shoes could happen.

This has been the protocol for nearly all of his footwear collaborations. 

Although there is technically no “official” release date for the Cactus Jack Fragment 1’s, the rumored released date of July 29, looks promising.

Travis Scott & Christian Dior Collab Pays Homage To The Late Pop Smoke

Pop Smoke Reportedly Refused to Cooperate With Authorities to Snitch on Crips Before he Passed

If you’re a Pop Smoke fan, you know the Brooklyn rapper adored him some Christian Dior. You couldn’t mention Pop without Dior. Now, thanks to the friend of the late legend, Travis Scott, and creative director Kim Jones, you can’t mention Dior without Pop Smoke. 

Yesterday, Christian Dior announced its partnership with the Cactus Jack brand for the Spring-Summer 2022 collection, and this morning’s unveiling of the pieces clearly shows its honoring of Pop Smoke. 
The first item released is a white t-shirt with the late rapper’s face on the front, off-center to the right with lyrics from his song “Dior” on the back. 

Travis took it to Instagram to show the release of the collaboration by posting the pictures and with a caption saying, “U CANT SAY POP AND FORGET THE SMOKE. NOW U IN ALL THE STORES 4 EVER.” 

Back in February of 2020, 4 masked gunmen shot and killed Pop Smoke in a home invasion robbery while visiting Hollywood Hills. Four people got arrested in July 2020 for the murder, 3 were minors, but none have gone to trial yet. 

Long live Pop Smoke.

Quavo Debuts Exclusive, Special Edition Atlanta Braves Cap with Lids

DSCF0293 2

Ahead of the release of Culture 3, Quavo is partnering with Lids for a new limited-edition Atlanta Braves hat.

The new exclusive, special edition cap brings in the Braves’ 1995 World Series win over the Cleveland Indiands back to prominence.

Featuring unique, Atlanta-inspired patches, it also has a vintage-inspired 1995 World Series patch on the front of the cap, iced out with a frost-like finish. One of Quavo’s favorite features of a fitted cap growing up were the patches, which served as inspiration during the designing process. The hat, an homage to the historic city and his hometown, includes special details such as the Braves’ red and gold logo, a white embroidered “A” for Atlanta, a gold World Series embroidered trophy, as well as a Quavo Huncho inspired patch.

This is the first product release from Quavo and Lids after he first partnered with the retailer in late 2019, joining their roster of partners alongside Meek Mill, Melvin Gordon III, Trevor Bauer, Chris Brickley, and Paper Planes.

The cap will be available in select Lids stores in Georgia and have limited quantities online at Lids.com this Friday.

Yeezy x Gap to Release First Line By End of June

Kanye West Secretly Met With Donald Trump's Advisor, Son-in-Law, Jared Kushner

Kanye West’s Yeezy x Gap collaboration is on its way.

The moment we’ve all been waiting for is shortly arriving. Last June Kanye West took to Twitter announcing the partnership. In April he finalized the logo for the partnership, by sampling the Gap logo with YZY. West’s minimalistic approach is one that has resonated throughout all of his fashion releases.

According to recent reports by The Business of Fashion, Gap is betting it all on the music and fashion mogul. Gap Inc., is expected to hold its Q1 earnings call on Thursday, May 27, where details about the upcoming line will most likely be discussed.

If the reports hold true, we should expect to see Yeezy x Gap-wear just in time for Summer.

Cardi B x Reebok Debut New “Mommy & Me” Video And Footwear

Screen Shot 2021 05 10 at 8.04.31 AM

Following up after Mother’s Day weekend, Cardi B and Reebok are excited to introduce the all-new “Mommy & Me” capsule footwear collection.

In honor of the launch, and reflecting on recent years as a new mom, Cardi wanted to share some advice with her fans that has helped her through motherhood so far. With fun tips ranging from how to keep kids entertained, to the number one piece of advice she’d pass on to her daughter.

Cardi B and Reebok worked hand-in-hand to create the “Mommy & Me” capsule footwear collection to honor her unwavering love for her daughter, Kulture. Cardi was inspired by the indescribable feeling of love she experienced when her daughter was born, and how her baby girl changed everything within her life.

Keeping the designs monochrome, each Club C Cardi is emblematic of Cardi and Kulture, drawing on her compassion and sensitivity. The thoughtful collection includes two Club C Cardi silhouettes – one in Rose Gold and one in Aqua Dust – inspired by special moments with Kulture, and Cardi’s life as a mom. 

Screen Shot 2021 05 10 at 8.06.44 AM

Known as the metal of love, rose gold is shiny and feminine but strong and durable, much like Cardi’s love and affection for Kulture. The Aqua Dust colorway ties back to the Aquamarine stone which represents clarity, calm and relaxation: three adjectives that Cardi uses to describe being a mom. Aquamarine is also the breathing stone which, to Cardi, is illustrative of how she feels now that Kulture is in her life.

The Reebok x Cardi B “Mommy & Me” collection is the final Club C Cardi drop and will be available to purchase in adult, junior and infant sizing on Reebok.com starting May 13th at 10AM EST.

Alexander Wang Speaks Out Against Sexual Assault Allegations

327354 1432622 updates

Popular fashion designer Alexander Wang has been in the headlines lately for alleged sexual assault. A Twitter account titled, “Sh*t Model Management” has posted a thread of accusations towards Wang supposedly coming from the numerous amount of models he sexually assaulted.

The allegations state that Wang gave the models MDMA without them knowing. The list of allegations has been the reason why Wang has been recently blacklisted from certain events.

Up until yesterday, Wang hasn’t spoken on the allegations. The fashion designer is denying the accusations and plans to seek legal action against those who are involved.

“Over the last few days, I have been on the receiving end of baseless and grotesquely false accusations. These claims have been wrongfully amplified by social media accounts infamous for posting defamatory material from undisclosed and/or anonymous sources with zero evidence or any fact-checking whatsoever,” Wang begins.

“Seeing these lies about me being perpetuated as truths has been infuriating.  I have never engaged in the atrocious behavior described and would never conduct myself in the manner that’s been alleged.  I intend to get to the bottom of this and hold accountable whoever is responsible for originating these claims and viciously spreading them online.”
