We all knew Supreme would stop the world yesterday after unveiling the new Fall/Winter 2018 offerings that go on sale in a few days, but no one expected them to take over, of all things, New York City journalism. However, that’s exactly what the legendary skatewear brand did by surprisingly stamping its iconic Box logo on the front-page of the New York Post.


With ‘Preme heads hustling to get their hands on the clear-as-day collectors item, a mild case of pandemonium skyrocketed throughout the NYC area, and saw a huge press day for the Post as a result. As expected, those that were lucky enough to arrive at newsstands early enough to cop a copy have decided to flip it for as much as $40 and higher.

The collab interestingly enough even brought two competing papers together as well, with Post publisher Jesse Angelo giving a nice batch of quotables to The New York Times about the collab. Here’s what he had to say in regards to the overflowing reactions on this “quickstrick” release:


“We knew that this would be a collector’s item. Supreme is such a cool brand and we have so much affinity, to the design kinship of the logos, to being bold, and never shy, and New York-based.”

— Jesse Angelo, New York Post (via The NY Times)


Even though you might’ve missed your chance at getting one for its original $1.50 price tag, eBay is still an option — it’ll just cost you about 40x more than the original price. Some are even selling lots for $500 and even over $1,000 — but hey, it ain’t cheap being a fan of Supreme!

Did you get a copy of the Supreme-theme New York Post? Better yet, would you pay extra to own a piece of New York history? Sound off by letting us know over on Facebook and Twitter!


New York Post on newsstands now. @nypost

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.

As Serena Williams — tennis court G.O.A.T. and overall goddess of everything she touches — prepares for the U.S. Open in a few weeks, Nike and Virgil Abloh are outfitting her in some seriously fly gear with the official “QUEEN” capsule set.



The collection arrives in the form of two finely-tuned and tulled dresses — one for “daytime” and one for “nighttime,” of course — and performance sneakers branded especially for Serena. Each dress incorporates Virgil’s signature all-caps and quotations lettering, fittingly spelling out “SERENA” in some places and “LOGO” on others. The footwear options include the NikeCourt Flare 2 PE, Air Max 97 and Blazer Mid SW, with each silhouette featuring a colorful gradient effect in its own special way.

Peep the Serena Willaims-exclusive (for now at least) Nike x Virgil Abloh “QUEEN” Collection below:


…Good luck on the courts, Queen!

It always seems like our homies overseas get the flyest Nike hookups, and the latest colorway for the Swoosh’s official chunky sole offering is yet another dope Euro-exclusive.



The M2K Tekno first saw the light of day back in February after debuting in the John Elliott RTW Fall 2018 runway show, leading many to think that it was the designer’s collaboration. However, Nike officially deemed “Techno Future” as the proper name for this colorway, which blends a “Summit White” upper with “Team Orange and “Mountain Blue” hues in perfect portions. Another added point is that, contrary to it’s previous womens-only availability, Nike UK also plans on dropping the shoe in sizes for men as well, giving the fellas a chance to swag out too.

Head over to Nike’s UK online shop this Thursday (August 16) at 9:00 AM CEST (3 AM EDT) to cop the M2K Tekno “Techno Future” for £89.95 (approx. $114.99 USD). More pics below:

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:

So, the upcoming Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” colorway has been through a lot of changes — somehow it all points back to Drake, but that’s another story. However, it’s looking like the highly-anticipated release will finally see the light of day as soon as next week.



The Toronto Raptors-inspired hue was originally expected to be a Drake-supported drop, all the way down to the Scorpion rapper’s signature appearing on the tongue. While that iteration of the shoe has been shelved — the purple Jumpman and red Drizzy siggy is replaced with a muted-out black version, sans the John Hancock — this edition is thankfully just as fly. Heck, we’re sure a few Pusha T fans will surely appreciate this version over the other. Only time will tell if these shoes will get the official co-sign by Drake again, especially after that line in his Astroworld feature, but we’ll find out soon enough.

The Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” hit retailers next week Saturday (August 18), so remind yourself why you need to be copping these with the set of images below:

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:

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!

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.

After getting a look last week at the recently relaunched Reebok Rapide silhouette, the global sportswear stalwart is rolling out the shoe with a full editorial campaign fronted by rising U.K. R&B star Mahalia.




Taking us to her native streets of East London for the lookbook, Mahalia looks straight up stunning with the ’90s runner to assist her swag. Although we’ve already saw the OG red/blue/grey color theme, this time around we’re introduced to an all-black version with white accents on the side panel vector logo, heel, inner lining and midsole. Even though the 20-year-old chanteuse was probably still in diapers (or the womb!) when this silhouette was enjoying its peak notoriety, her old-soul vocal talent matches the retro vibe of the Rapide to a tee.

Peep Mahalia rolling through East London in the Reebok Rapide Fall/Winter 2018 campaign, and shop the shoe online, where both colorways seen here and a few others are available now.

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:

Words by Shatay Speights

 

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!

We were already fans of the Vapormax wave after peeping the “Firecracker” Air Max Plus hybrid that dropped last month, but the Swoosh really takes the cake for giving the revamp to one of its most iconic silhouettes and colorways: the “Neon” Air Max 95.



Officially dubbed the Vapormax 95, this iteration of the classic model blends the best of both worlds to create something completely in its own lane. The OG construction from the Neon 95s you know and love stays in place right up until you reach the midsole unit. From there, the shiny black Vapormax cushioning comes into play, taking the Air bubble unit from the original and turning it into 5 circular exterior bubbles that stand in for the outsole. The only disruption from the dark hue are neon accents in place on the edges of the frontal and heel Air units. If you’re a person that welcomes change with open arms, this is one that will definitely be the perfect fit.

The game-changing Nike Vapormax 95 arrives through Nike SNKRS beginning next Thursday (August 16) for $190 USD. Get a closer look by checking out official images below:

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.

The ’90s was the pinnacle for many things currently influencing today’s culture, one of those being the hyper-stylish ‘Lo Head movement that has people scouring vintage shops for throwback Polo gear. Although Ralph Lauren released it’s own tribute to the Lo Life not too long ago, Nike decided to come through with a less-than-official nod in the form of a colorful new Air Force II Low colorway.



The color-blocking is what you notice off the rip on this silhouette, which makes for an easy task to accomplish given the many panels to play with on this particular model. The “Blue Void” and “Midnight Green” hues balance each other out perfectly here, with the former color in place on the tongue, laces, toe box and heel, while the latter settles into the suede paneling that wraps around the shoe from heel to toe. “Habanero Red” pops up on the Swoosh and Nike branding, while a simple yellow is incorporated into the inner lining to compliment the gum sole. If the classic Polo Snow Beach jacket was ever a shoe, this would definitely be the sneaker equivalent — well, save for this actual “Snow Beach” tribute by Packer Shoes & Saucony.

Check out more detailed pics of the latest Air Force II colorway, which is available now for $ 95.00 USD at select retailers, including Premier

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.
