As fans of NY Yankees star Aaron Judge await to see how quickly he’ll recover from that wrist injury, the 2017 Rookie of the Year decided to bless diehards with a treat in the form of his brand new Oakley frames as the newest member of #TeamOakley.



Setting up shop at the NYC Oakley Store on Fifth Avenue last Friday (August 10), Judge took fans on a history of his lengthy relationship with Oakley — at age 11 he had custom-colored frames to match the colors of his first softball team uniform — and why he’s happy to be officially endorsed by the Cali-based sports eyewear brand. Of course, a few fans asked about his stats and recovery time when the Q&A came around, but all eyes were definitely on his custom “99” Radar® EV Pitch® frames, which feature the innovative PRIZM lens technology. It also didn’t hurt that all fans in the shop walked away with their own pair of Judge-stamped frames. We’ll just speak for everyone when we say this: thanks AJ!

Get a look at images from Aaron Judge’s in-store event below, and shop the Oakley Radar EV Pitch — customizing available, too! — by hitting up the Oakley online store.

In the streetwear community, no brand causes more commotion than Supreme when it comes to unveiling a new collection — those daily lines outside their flagship shop in NYC ain’t for nothing! Now, as the brand rolls out its highly-anticipated Fall/Winter 2018 collection, it really becomes clear what the hype is all about and why it’s definitely well-deserved.



Quality is key when it comes to Supreme. Their collaborations are always top-of-the-line, from sportswear with Champion to leather goods with Schott NYC, and the details are consistently in line with the “wild style” that inspired the skatewear brand to launch over two decades ago. Standouts this time around include dog-tagged pieces designed by graffiti artist Sancheeto, a embroidered Enter the Dragon-inspired work jacket and pant set, official Supreme Team varsity jackets — also featuring stellar artwork by Cheeto (seen above) — and pretty much every single outwear piece in the jacket department. Definitely some dope things here; no cap, although they have a lot of those, too!

No off-the-wall accessories this time around, unless you consider Supreme-branded Lunden cough drops, life-size male and female anatomy mannequins, KeyTron pocket knives in collaboration with SOG®, and, umm, hand warmers to be out the box. Okay, maybe a slight bit eclectic! Either way, the kings of this game really came through once again with some of the freshest gear we’ll probably see for all of next season.

Expect the Supreme Fall/Winter 2018 collection to arrive this Thursday (August 16) exclusively in the NY, LA, London and Paris stores, with a drop in Japan stores on August 18. The online shop opens back up starting August 20 here in the States and over in the UK, and on August 25 in Japan. Check out every piece right now in the online preview, but peep the full lookbook below before you go:

Woolrich hit us with a surprise recently by locking in R&B/Hip-Hop legend Lauryn Hill for her first-ever fashion campaign, and now the heritage brand is keeping with the music/style synergy by linking with Downtown jazz crew ONYX Collective.



For the second round in the “Woolrich: American Soul Since 1830” campaign, the burgeoning, sonically-smooth crew of musicians give their take on what it means to embody “American Soul.” Pieces like the Sierra Supreme Parka and Arctic Parka look snug and stylish, with the band, including singers Raphaelle and Zarina Nares who are also featured, making it all look like the perfect collection for the impending autumn season.

Expect the full Wollrich “American Soul Since 1830” FW18 collection to arrive this month in-store and at select stockists, but let the ONYX Collective show you how to rock it all in the lookbook images below:

We love a good collab when it comes to style, and New Era and Nautica link up for the first time ever in the most innovative and recycle-friendly way possible.



The new collection of hats — the Hydro Race, Scuba, and Color Block models are the ones featured here — were actually constructed from vintage Nautica jackets, giving each hat a custom “one-of-one” quality. From simple white and navy hues to the more vibrant yellow, red, and royal blue options, you really can’t go wrong in the selection process — ’90s heads, you’re very welcome!

Pick up the New Era x Nautica capsule collection, which ranges in price between $40 USD and $75 USD, beginning August 24 at NewEraCap.com, the Nautica online shop, and Jimmy Jazz.

Nike is riving the playoff saga between the Chicago Bulls and the Orlando Magic. Reflecting on a time when the NBA  was arguably at its competitive height.

Competition between the eastern conference rivals was fierce and explosive. Meeting 10 times throughout the 1995 and 1996 playoffs, the Bulls earned the edge and eventually earned the championship rings. Although the Magic proved they could indeed run with the Bulls, defeating them 4-2 in the 1995 series.

However, the Bulls bullied the Magic the following year, subsequently sweeping them in the 96′ series before defeating Shawn Kemp and the Seatle Sonics in the finals.

Aside from standouts like Jordan and young Shaq, Penny Hardaway and Scottie Pippen proved to possess star qualities as well.  In fact, they tested each other as one could be called to guard the other at any given time.

Celebrating those memorable moments, Nike has decided to reimagine Pippen’s signature  Air More Uptempo and  Hardaway’s Air Max Penny 1.

Dressing both silhouettes in pinstripes, the swoosh brand must’ve appreciated the Bulls’ black and red pinstriped jersey which complemented the Magic’s blue and white pinstriped jersey.

The pinstripes reveal intricate details. Hidden within, Pippen’s Uptempo stripes spell out ‘AIR.’ In contrast,  Hardaway’s  Penny 1’s stripes which read ‘1CENT.’

Equally priced at $160 each, the “Pinstripe Pack” will release at nike.com and Nike Sportswear retailers on Saturday, August. 11.

Stone Island, a favorite brand for the likes of A$AP Rocky and Drake, recently dropped a massive rollout of fall goods, and the standouts in the set were definitely the full range of knitwear pieces.



If you like to shop outside the norms, Stone Island is where you need to be. In addition to providing a quality set of crewnecks and cardigans, the brand gets experimental in some instances as well, particularly with the stand-up collar options and zip-up swag to assist the classic turtlenecks, v-necks, and hoodies. In terms of the materials used, lightweight wool, mélange-infused cotton, and the increasingly popular lambswool — we recently saw Carhartt WIP adapt it into their FW18 set as well — are all constructed to perfection to make for a collection filled with cozy boy essentials.

All the knitwear options out of the Stone Island AW’018-‘019 Collection are available now, ranging from $288 USD to $678 USD, in the brand’s online shop. More pics below:

New York rapper Princess Nokia has always expressed her love for the ‘90s style era aesthetic, as the clothing she rocks on the regular boasts the same relaxed and effortless energy that the influential decade is known in part for.

In her newest partnership that she took to social media to announce, the style rebel (known to her loved ones as Destiny Frasqueri) takes us down memory lane as the new face for Betsey Johnson’s Fall 2018 Campaign.

As a nostalgic symbol of pretty, punk and all-around fun — colorful designs for millennials everywhere! — Betsey’s larger-than-life fashion personality is bringing the essence and the signature energy of her namesake brand to a new group of consumers in this latest collection. “Betsey is a icon to many NYC club kids and fashion weirdos. The plaid, the dresses, the somersault at the end of every season’s show. Can’t tell me I’m not a fan, darling,” Princess Nokia shared in reflection of the designer’s impact and brand.

In the campaign, Princess Nokia is sporting a wide range of modern takes on classic Betsey Johnson pieces and design elements — plaid, tulle, fishnet stockings, pop art, leopard and bright, bold prints and colors. The looks featured are all styled to perfection to evoke the energy that the Betsey Johnson brand is known for. The collection is described as “everything you need to channel your inner rebel,” with the “Morphine” singer serving as the perfect choice to introduce the collection. Statement pieces of the new collection are the novelty statement bags, oversized jeweled pendants and clothing with tulle, lace and plaid. The overall vibe of the collection is definitely for a bold, vibrant, modern rocker chick.

With style influences like Aaliyah, Posh Spice and J. Lo, the Puerto Rican-American artist oozes ‘90s nostalgic style, making her a great fit as the face of this campaign.

Check out the images from the Fall 2018 Betsey Johnson campaign below, and shop the latest pieces in the brand’s online shop. Let’s go, Nokia!

Okay ladies, you didn’t think the guys would have all the Carhartt WIP FW18 swag for themselves, did you? Nah fam — they just dropped some dimes on us, too!

When it comes to the drip, we all know Carhartt never disappoints, even exceeding beyond our expectations while honing in on edgy, tomboy-chic obsessions. The lookbook is shot in a subtle, everyday streetwear manner that shows us how, when we do get around to copping these gems, it won’t be difficult to stunt at our usual hangouts with the girlies without doing too much — you know, something light!

 

Featuring a classic fall season color palette of  “Rover Green,” “Frosted Viola,” “Persimmon,” and the all-year-round New Yorker go-to “Black,” the new collection exposes us to a bunch of staple Carhartt womenswear essentials, like the Script T-shirt with its signature placed on the upper and the banging “Laxey Liner” that can add flavor to any wardrobe. This inclusive collection gives us so much variety that it’s difficult to not cop every piece that it has to offer. Whether we want to rock our bummy-swag and spice it up with their “Dark Navy” Bib Overall, or stick to our tomboy-finesse in their “Wall” Master Pant, flyness is guaranteed for sure. Just take your pick at what you want!

Although some items are not available yet for purchasing, you can still cop the first wave of Carhartt WIP women’s pieces on their official website now.

LaQuan Smith, whose designs are favored by Cardi B, Beyonce, and Rihanna, is bringing his sexy garments to the mass market to dress millions of 20-somethings in a partnership with mega online retailer ASOS.

The announcement of this collaboration between the Queens, New York native and ASOS is a step forward for boosting the visibility of black designers in the fashion industry. Despite the undeniable black influence on pop culture and fashion, few African Americans—and their contributions—are consistently recognized in a major way for their efforts, especially in the fashion industry. Though the visibility of black creators and artists is rising and the black gaze in fashion is slowly being seen as valuable currently, much work still has to be done.

The ASOS x LaQuan Smith collaboration came about casually, with Lola Okuyiga, the then director of collaborations and special projects at ASOS, playing a key role. She approached Smith’s team with the opportunity after being a fan of the brand for years and expressed interest in working together.

The ASOS Design x LaQuan Smith collection will bring the stunning creations from Smith that showcases a luxurious nightlife aesthetic with hallmarks like plunging necklines, body-hugging silhouettes and high slits to a wider audience. The British retailer boasts reach of over 18 million active customers. “Customers can expect classic, sexy LaQuan Smith shapes—women’s, men’s, accessories, shoes and plus size—reworked for the global ASOS customer. There is something for everyone,” the designer had to say. “I’m just really excited because there are a lot of people out there, specifically young kids, who aspire to wear my clothes that can’t necessarily afford it. Items in this collection will sell for less than $300, a price in line with the majority of offerings on the ASOS site.

The ASOS x LaQuan Smith collection will be available on the ASOS website in October.

After all of the rumors swirling that Nike was working on a rainbow-soled Blazer with Virgil Abloh and the release of the latest Tech Pack drop, Nike Sportswear is back with a new collection called Nike Sport Pack.

The new collection from Nike fuses bold graphics, textiles, silhouettes and contemporary and signature design elements, offering a collection that is equal parts sporty and stylish. Sport Pack features mix-and-match separates, track pants, outerwear, dresses, t-shirts, sweatshirts, accessories and more. The pieces from Sport Pack allow the wearer to easily merge them into their wardrobe and express their personality. The line is designed to alter the boundaries of sport, ultimately delivering a new language of creative self-expressive.

“Nike Sport Pack is an entirely new collection that draws from the energy and emotion of sport, while providing a bold new expression for Nike. We are referencing our own history and heritage in a way that’s uniquely Nike. It goes back to that idea of cut-and-paste sensibility—taking things from different eras and different reference points and putting them together,” says Senior Design Director Ricky Hendry of the collection.

The campaign that introduced Nike Sport Pack boasts a youthful, fun, cool and free energy. Featuring stars like Sloane Stephens, Odell Beckham Jr., Mabel and many more, this campaign gives off a vibe that is both vintage and modern and trendy.

Nike Sport Pack is now available on the Nike website and in Nike Kickslounge stores in Greater China, with a global release following on August 16.

Take a look at the campaign imagery below for a glimpse into the new aesthetic that Nike has created with Sport Pack.

As Spike Lee preps for the release of his latest theatrical “Spike Lee Joint”, the crime-thriller biopic BLACKkKLANSMAN, our favorite director links up with Levi’s for a capsule of sho’ nuff fly trucker jackets.



Lee actually co-designed these denim offerings, so his input is etched all throughout in the form of 40 Acres and a Mule patches, BK-themed motifs with nods to fashion label Defend Brooklyn and a few other pro-Black embroidery additions. The two options available are washed black and indigo, with both featuring a built-in hoodie that has its own pro-Africa patch on the hood.

The Spike Lee x Levi’s Trucker Jackets will drop for $190 USD on August 9 — one day before BLACKkKLANSMAN hits theaters — through Lee’s 40 Acres production website and the Levi’s SoHo store in New York, who will also host an in-store event. More pics below:

Back like they never left, KITH did it again with another fire drop that satisfies all of our beach needs and then some — just prepare yourself to be left drippin’ in swag.

The streetwear powerhouse switched it up with the summer 2018 offerings, taking the essence of New York’s style and applying the pressure with some super fresh sandy beach vibes. In this extensive collection, one will find that there are no limits to a monochromatic stunt, as they hit us with a cool-as-ice color palette in addition to a 100% cotton seersucker floral print overload. 

Unfortunately, a good portion of the latest KITH Summer ’18 gems are sold out, but take a look at 10 dope pieces still available to shop through right now:

 

Look #13 – Seersucker Harrison Pullover & Cap. Full lookbook tomorrow.

A post shared by Kith (@kith) on

 

Price: $72.00 USD

Dress it up and make it real for me, man! Everyone needs a classic tee in their wardrobe, and this essential piece made from cotton slub jersey fabric will definitely keep you looking cool when out on the scene. Rock this one with equally classic staples, like all-white G-Fazos or low-top Vans.

 

KITH REGAL TERRY CREWNECK “GREEN”

Price: $130.00 USD

One can never go wrong when sporting a crewneck, especially since we can wear it all year. KITH hones in on the brand’s basic wear giddy-up and adds a little pizazz with its Amador-like signature “K” placed in the center of the layout.

KITH REGAL TERRY POLO “NAVY”

Price: $100.00 USD

It’s a cozy boy overload, but are we really upset about it? This polo gives a sleek vibe that can add some flavor to that business casual look, or be dressed up with a leather pant and Steve Madden clear-heeled sandals.

KITH REGAL STRIPE SPA SLIDES “NAVY”

Price: $40.00

Always cozy and never bummy, you feel me? These updated Deebo from Friday slippers are for those nights when you just want to kick back and relax while stuntin’ on ’em in the same breath.

KITH SEERSUCKER CAP “NAVY / WHITE”

Price: $60.00 USD

Definitely built for those breezy summer nights when you want to be lowkey! The seersucker design is one that will never go out of style, and looks perfect with plain and/or vibrant clothing. You just can’t miss by adding this dope piece to the weekly rotation.

KITH REGAL TERRY SHORT “RED”

Price: $120.00 USD

These Terry shorts are a bonus for both the fellas and the ladies. Copping these hitters will eliminate any complications, especially since they give a light breeze while out on the scene.

KITH JFK TEE “IRON GATE”

Price: $72.00 USD

Everyone always needs a basic tee for their subtle drips, and KITH does just the trick with its “Iron Gate” grey colorway. Get two just to be on the safe side.

KITH SEERSUCKER CAP “GREY / WHITE”

Price: $60.00

Back at it again with the cap flow, but more options are always a plus! This grey option channels our streetwear-chic aesthetic by featuring a seersucker finish for added effect.

KITH REGAL TERRY CREWNECK “RED”

Price: $130.00

To match the drip with our other gems, we have this classic crewneck with a regal gold finish. Featuring terry cloth construction for an extra comfy fit, this is definitely something light and cool you can cop to boost any decked-out ‘fit.

KITH REGAL TERRY POLO “RED”

Price: $100.00

Including a classic Polo in your wardrobe is definitely a must for any respected fashion stan. Since you’re able to dress it up or dress it down for a casual occasion, this color option is bold and is the ultimate standout piece to heat up the last leg of your summer in.

 

Looking to still pick up some of these gems from KITH’s Summer 2018 Collection? Head over to the web store to purchase a few other options.

After insightful and gem-dropping profiles on influentials figures like Miss Info and Migos member Offset, Alpha Industries returns with another “Heroes” feature, this time profiling Brooklyn-bred turntable legend DJ Clark Kent.



CK takes us through his upbringing in Brooklyn and love for music in his profile, starting from being a 9-year-old audiophile that led to him DJing parties by the time he was 11. Of course, the Superman of mixing also shares some of his greatest musical moments, particularly when it comes to his legendary work alongside Jay-Z and his fondest memories of the dearly missed rap icon The Notorious B.I.G. Above all though, it’s his own definition of what a hero is that really makes you understand why this man has survived in the game for all these years and continues to still be everyone’s favorite selector.

Watch DJ Clark Kent in the latest episode of “Heroes” above, and shop the latest Aplha Industries pieces right now in the brand’s online store.
