Afro-futuristic musical duo, Shabazz Palaces teamed up with Kenzo and their SS14 collection to create this beautiful video teaser for their new single “Dawn in Luxor”. In case that wasn’t enough magic for you, it’s directed by Kahlil Joseph and styled by our friend Mobolaji Dawodu. All of the best coming together to create art…Kenzo sure does know how to pick ’em.
These Opening Ceremony X Mickey Mouse ads make us happy. Like Pharell happy…
Women’s specialty retailer ANN INC. has figured out a way to tap into a somewhat emerging market with their release of fashionable loungewear. The company that established its roots some 60 years ago with Ann Taylor, and followed up with LOFT, has just launched Lou & Grey to appeal to what they call “lifewear” for a client who isn’t looking for yoga pants or pajamas when thinking of what to lounge in everyday at home or in the street. Lou & Grey was conceived out of the success of the loungewear category within the LOFT brand, and has taken on a soft, clean, and relaxed California vibe of its own. SoCal in fact, that they’ve teamed up with artist/model/Ernest Hemingway’s great-granddaughter – Langley Fox Hemmingway, to create illustrations and be the face for their launch campaign. Lou & Grey has opened it’s first concept store in Westport, Connecticut, with plans to open more. It can also still be found within LOFT stores across the country.
Lupita Nyong’o is all that mattered at tonight’s Golden Globes. Ralph Lauren has never been luckier.

My mind is already being blown by some of the Menswear assortments coming down the runway during Fall’14 shows in London this week. So far a few notable mentions are the designer duo Agi & Sam with their graphic West African meets Savile Row patterns, textures, silhouettes, and layered styling. Another duo that continues to get it right are father and son designers Casely-Hayford who used luxe fabrications such as fur and leather to create blocking details throughout jackets and shirting, and whose color palate ranges from fall neutrals to pops of brights in whimsical prints. Even the more classically tailored Rake collection inserted bits of geo patterns and new bottoms silhouettes for this Fall. If the shows so far are any indication, I’d say that Menswear is really shaping up to be something new and fresh this go round.
