For the first time ever, INIFD and the London School of Trends presented a runway showing during New York Fashion Week on February 11th at famed NYFW location Pier 59.

The showing dubbed “Vibrant India FW18”, is the brainchild of the students at the fashion institutions who created collections over the course of a semester that reflected thought-provoking construction and aesthetic with New York sensibility. Capturing the spirit of India with students coming from diverse backgrounds, they focused on fall winter trends while embracing a certain and exciting 2018 season.

Overseen by fashion editor and celebrity stylist James R. Sanders, the students created 60 garments – including both women’s and menswear that reflected their own personal narratives while being inspired by the great city of New York.

“I’m incredibly proud of the students. Not only are they talented, but they are driven fashion people who are certain to take the industry by storm,”
said Sanders.

Vibrant India speaks to the movement, weaves, draping, and all that is unique about Indian textiles. Vibrant colors with rich deep hues and fabrics reflect a one-of-a-kind craftsmanship that makes India a powerhouse source for fashion and goods.

Having shown during London Fashion Week consistently, the students are no strangers to producing collections under pressure and with tight deadlines, but New York is of course its own fashion machine. Collections have been covered by several press outlets including Vogue, Glamour, GQ, and Huffington Post.

On Wednesday, global fitness lifestyle brand Reebok joined forces with international rapper and brand partner Lil Yachty to host an unforgettable fashion and music experience celebrating the iconic Reebok Workout Plus sneaker and Reebok’s ‘Always Classic’ campaign. The evening was a living representation of the eclectic culture upon which the Reebok Workout Plus was built, and featured a look into Reebok’s storied brand archive, a live musical performance by Lil Yachty, a dance performance by Meechie and Toosi and a fashion presentation curated by stylist Rox Brown.

Known for his unique style sensibilities and his ability to draw inspiration from the past to remix daring and bold looks for the present day, Lil Yachty brought to life the Workout’s versatility by fusing music, attitude and style.

Held at Manhattan’s Classic Car Club, guests were treated to an experiential journey through the Workout Plus’ unique heritage. Lil Yachty joined his stylist, Rox Brown, and members of his ‘Sailing Team,’ JBans2Turnt and Kodie Shane, for a deeper look into what goes into their unique style choices. Rox demonstrated how to pair nostalgic style staples with the Workout, creating head-to-toe looks that stand out in today’s fashion landscape.

Some of the other notables in attendance were female rap queen Remy Ma, Power actor Rotimi and Luka Sabbat of Grown-ish.

Earlier this year, Reebok Classic revealed its Spring/Summer 2018 campaign, “Always Classic,” that celebrates the brand’s most disruptive and authentic style pioneers – challenging them to step up to the global stage to define what “Always Classic” means to them. For more information on Reebok’s “Always Classic” campaign and to purchase the Workout Plus sneaker, as worn by Lil Yachty, please visit Reebok.com.

Level up on your fashion game and hit the streets with these sneakers that are equal parts cool and geeky. NBA star Paul George has announced his collaboration between the gaming brand and Nike: the ‘PG-2 PlayStation’ colorway.

In a post on the Sony PlayStation blog, George mused about the opportunity, saying, “Just like basketball, I’ve had a knack for video games since I was a kid… This collaboration has been a long time coming.”

“Ask me what my favorite PlayStation memory is and I’ll tell you it’s when my dad got me a PS2 for Christmas. I’d been dropping hints left and right because I knew that was it. That was the next big thing.”

Created by Nike designer Tony Hardman, the shoes are inspired by the PlayStation’s DualShock 4 controller and pay homage to some of the PlayStation’s iconic symbols.

Mirroring what it would look like to switch on the console, the shoe’s tongues—which feature the Paul George and PlayStation logos—light up and pulsate in blue. The lights don’t require charging; they’re battery-powered and will run for roughly 150 hours.

The back of the left shoe contains a unique barcode that holds a PSN voucher code, which can be unlocked at the PlayStation Store to redeem a ‘Paul George Dynamic’ PS4 theme.

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs wears many hats but one that we all can benefit from is that of  motivational speaker. Rooted in the spirit of “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop”,  his strong belief system and faith, grounds his daily affirmations and inspires us all. Have you ever considered where Mr. Combs gets his inspiration? His children? His music? His business? His church? All of those would be right. He also is inspired by art- and being a Puff Daddy muse can change your life.

Ask Pierre Jean-Baptiste

Local Brooklyn artist, Pierre Jean- Baptiste, started off the New Year by posting a video from Diddy and son, Justin Combs admiring his work out in some exotic location.

Revolt and Power 105.1 correspondent Joed Esperance bought one of Pierre’s art work as a gift for Diddy. In the piece, you can see bold statements like “Faith Without Work is Dead”, “Create Like a God, Command Like A King”, “Black Excellence” and “DNA= Royalty”. These phrases that denote spiritual power, of course, was right up Puff’s alley. Here is the work of art.

Faith without work is dead ! … keep working welcome to 2018 ! #PStudios

A post shared by Pierre (@pstudios_) on

28 year-old Pierre is a Haitian American artist from Brooklyn, New York who had his first showcase titled The Vagabond in NYC early December 2017. The exhibit was successful and it looks like Pierre has a great year ahead of him. This work reminds many of another Haitian artist that many rappers love, Jean-Michel Basquiat!

We look forward to seeing more of his work. Congratulations!

sneaker in “Triple Black”. The sneaker will be made available at multiple retailers.

The Scorpion (Future’s astrological sign) inspires the rapper’s signature sneaker. The sneaker’s upper features a suede texture inspired by the hair on a scorpion’s tail, claws and legs, while the molded vamps resemble the ribbed body.
The heel collar also offers the flexibility of a scorpion’s tail, which makes it easy to
wear.

Under Armour just released Stephen Curry’s highly anticipated fourth signature shoe, Curry 4. The newest shoe is designed to offer more traction, comfort and all-around control and comes in black, white and gray. It’s cross-concentric circles on the outsole provide more grip to a court’s surface, the sock-like construction and the knitted collar provide a close fit, and the speed plate running down the shoe provides stability.

Curry was involved in each step of the design process, and worked closely with Senior Design Manager Kort Neumann. A nice personal touch to the shoes’ aesthetic includes the famous biblical verse – Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things.”

Curry 4 is available for pre-order on Under Armour’s site for $130.

Travis Scott is linking up with Nike, to release an Air Force 1  Low collaboration.

La Flame and Nike announced the collabo today as apart of the 35th anniversary of the sportswear giant. Senior Creative Director at Nike Sportswear, Al Baik, explained to Nike how he teamed up with Travis and spoke about the shoe’s design:

When we first met with Travis, the first thing he said was, ‘I’m the acid of rap.’ It was a prompt to take a classic but then really trip it out. We brought this idea to life by making the binding around the canvas reflective, so when it hits light, it reflects various colors. At first glance, it’s seemingly one color, but at a different angle, it has layers and depth to it. To mix up the look, the swoosh is Velcro and comes with three different articulations of the Swoosh. Customizable patches are based on his label artwork, and the dubrae is comprised of Travis’ grill.

Along with tapping into La Flame, Nike released collaborative projects with Don C, Kareem “Biggs” Burke, Errolson Hugh and Virgil Abloh. Nike and Travis Scott’s Air Force 1 Low will be available on Sat., Dec. 2, at select Nike retailers.

Just In Time for Tip-off, Russ is honored by the Mountain Dew family…

During the summer, Mountain Dew announced that they would honor brand athlete and NBA MVP Russell Westbrook with a truly unique fashion outfit for his wardrobe which is the first ever Triple-Double Breasted Suit. And right before tip-off of the 2016-2017 NBA season, the suit has arrived.

Created by American menswear designer Mark McNairy, the Triple-Double Breasted Suit pays homage to Russ’ record breaking season and “Don’t Do They” mentality – whether on the court dropping 50 point triple doubles, or off the court in his many stylish fits.

The suit includes several unique style elements that pay tribute to his historic campaign, including:

  • Don’t Do They: Russ’ iconic rallying cry from his ASW commercial is featured on the underside of the jacket collar as a bold “THEY” crossed out in red
  • 42: Russ’ season-defining tripe double record is emblazoned on the jacket breast pocket
  • Shot clock with 1 second left: Russ was a king in the clutch; to highlight this, :01 is shown on the inside breast pocket
  • Camo Pattern: DEW has a history with camo as does McNairy which made camo an obvious color choice.

Check out images of the custom stylish suit below.

During the Golden Era of Hip Hop, his clothing was in popular demand by the top tier representatives of this ever-evolving culture. Nobody cared that his monogram Gucci, Louis Vuitton, MCM, Fendi and other expensive brands were being bootlegged. Now in 2017, even the brands themselves want a piece of his knockoff empire.

In the past, these millennial brands weren’t so welcoming. In 1992, his business was effectively shut down by lawyers acting on behalf of Fendi. Fast forward to 2017, however, and things have changed. It was announced this week that Gucci would be collaborating with Dan to reopen his store and atelier, using Gucci’s fabrics with the Italian brand’s approval. A collaboration between Gucci and Dan will follow in the spring. Dan himself will star in the ad campaign.

In May, Gucci were criticized for a jacket included in the cruise collection which had an exact replica to one that Dan had created for Olympic runner Diane Dixon in 1989. Dixon took to social media to showcase the comparison, posting a picture of the jacket on the catwalk with one of her in the eighties with the caption “‘Bish’ stole my look! Give credit to @dapperdanharlem He did it FIRST in 1989!”

As the old saying goes, if you can’t beat ‘rn, join ’em.
