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.

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.

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.

Anyone who has experienced the energy of an HBCU, whether at a tailgate, halftime show, an event or simply walking around campus, can attest to vibe being one that is unmatched.

The one undeniable quality that is present at the HBCUs in the U.S. is the amount of style and fashion sense displayed on-campus is like no other. When walking onto an HBCU campus, be ready for a fashionable spectacle of grand proportions. One is sure to see styles and fashions that are reminiscent of the places that tell students’ life stories and are the looks that influence global fashion trends.

Southern University and A&M College alumni Amechi Ugwu understood the importance of paying homage to the fashion contributions that come out of these institutions. His solution to preserving the legacy of HBCU fashion influences led to the birth of Torch Sportswear, an apparel brand whose “vintage collection of HBCU apparel and memorabilia that represents the diverse group of institutions across the country that have educated African American students for over 100 years.”

Torch Sportswear is the first e-commerce store to exclusively sell vintage HBCU apparel and accessories. The inventory includes colorful unisex sweatshirts, bomber jackets, graphic t-shirts, baseball hats, jerseys and pullovers that proudly display the logos of illustrious institutions like Alabama State, Southern University, Spelman, North Carolina A&T, Grambling, Howard, Florida A&M and more. The product pricing ranges from $50 to $400.

Ugwu decided to launch Torch Sportswear in 2012, during his junior year at Southern University. He felt such an immense amount of pride as an HBCU student who was carrying on the legacy of black scholars who were intellectually and sartorially gifted. He was also inspired by the style of his fellow classmates strutting across campus in dope looks, especially seeing how they would rock fashion pieces with vintage finds and school paraphernalia.

Looking good and stepping out in style is something that is engrained in the DNA of African Americans. An HBCU campus definitely boasts an aura of “When you step out, you better come correct!” Shoutout to Amechi Ugwu and Torch Sportswear on such a dope movement to keep the legacy of HBCU style going!

The relationship between sports and fashion is one that has strong ties, and the influence of sports in fashion (and vice versa) is one that continues to grow.

The iconic Italian label Kappa has managed to make its presence known with dynamic and unique ath-leisure offerings that have caught the attention of streetwear lovers from around the world and of influencers in music, fashion, and sports. Kappa’s distinctive “Omini” logo features a man and woman leaning against one another, representative of the equality and mutual support between men and women. The logo is now a recognizable symbol of style and quality. It has arguably been referred to as the European equivalent to the triple stripes from Adidas. That statement speaks to the impact the Kappa has on both the sports and fashion worlds.

The Italian streetwear brand has outfitted Olympians and champions like Valerie Brisco-Hooks, Florence Griffith, and Edwin Moses, supplied clothing for NYC marathon runners, and also operates as a sponsor of national and pro soccer teams like Juventus, A.C. Milan and F.C. Barcelona. The CEO of Kappa USA, Puneet Girdhar, defines Kappa as a “legend brand” in relation to heavy involvement and visibility in sports. With the amount of work they have put in, the moniker from the Girdhar is no misnomer.

Kappa’s S/S 2018 “BANDA” collection is the star of the editorial shot by Polina Vinogradova. The collection speaks to the essence of Kappa as a brand and showcases the bold branding that is prevalent in pieces influenced by streetwear.

The capsule collection features an array of t-shirts, track jackets, and oversized sweatpants, with the “Omini” logo subtly stealing the show throughout the editorial. The styling features everyday pieces and articles of clothing like denim, minimal jewelry, and cozy sneakers. The “BANDA” capsule presents a cool take on the much-loved tracksuits and separates that the Italian streetwear brand is known for.

Check out the imagery from the Kappa “BANDA” editorial shot by Polina Vinogradova below, and let us know what you think!

Similar in design to its previous release, this everyday-wear tote bag hones in on the classic monochromatic silhouette with its woven detailing and spacious compartments.

The tote bag features interior pockets encompassed with a laptop sleeve that will keep all our items safe, in addition, a bungee-cord-like overload that secures the final touches of this summer must-have.

It’s a new era in the fashion game, especially with high-end brands tapping into Hip-Hop culture. The new designers and influencers that’ve created these dope finds have definitely succeeded our needs, and PRADA is the brand next up to start flooding our closets.

“Feds taking pictures like it’s GQ” – Self

A post shared by Pusha T (@kingpush) on

Recently, the fashion powerhouse released box-fit shirts adorned with abstract designs and patterns that give major flavor on both sides of the layout. You probably saw G.O.O.D Music President Pusha T (seen above) sporting one of these button-ups during his Governor’s Ball performance last month — people weren’t exactly feeling this mash-up, though.

Ladies, they didn’t forget about you! The collection has unisex designs as well, not that it really makes a difference for those of us who rock mens clothing on a regular basis. If you’re looking to spend bread (and then some!) on this FW18 collection, head over to SSENSE to cop the newest PRADA additions, starting at $700.

What happens when the cool heavy combo of the Jordan 1, 3 and other Nike retros collide with the hot talents of designer Don C? A storm is on the way.

The “Storm Blue” Don C x Jordan Legacy 312 brings a mostly white upper outlined by the blue toe box and heel which bears the signature Jumpman logo usually we find this placement on the Jordan 3. More elements from 3 include the signature elephant print and outsole

Borrowing from the Jordan 1, we find collaborative  Just Don and Nike branding on the tongue as well as similar placement of the “wings” logo featured on the outside left upper near the mouth of the shoe.

All other stylings such as the Nike embossed strap, placement of the large swoosh take cues from the David Robinson’s Air Command Force and Bo Jackson’s Air Trainer.

Don C is a student of the sneaker game considering you would need to be familiar with the elements of inspiration to appreciate this sneaker.

If you appreciate this release make sure you grab a pair when they drop on July 14 at select Jordan retailers for a retail price of $150. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for other colorways wherever you find these. Storm Blue is just one of the Legacy 312 4-pack release. See detailed images of the Storm Blue 312.

Real diehard Jordan sneakerheads will tell you that they only want to wear their J’s in the original colorways Michael Jordan wore during his playing days.

However, based on new images shared by Jordan Brand employee Frank Cooker, these unreleased Jordan 6’s may change their mind.

Dubbed “Purple Rain,” this new rendition of the six features an eggplant-purple suede upper, garnished with  Jumpman logos across the tongue. In contrast, the upper also features laces dressed in a deeper purple complete with a white lace lock. Sitting atop a duller purple midsole with a semi-translucent outsole to finish off the look.

If your opinion on newer J’s has changed upon examining the images, you’ll still have to wait on these because a general release has not been announced yet.

Still, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a decked out purple Jordan 6. Back in 2015, the brand released the “Purple Dynasty” pack which favors the unreleased version except the dynasty pack had less contrasting tones.

All things considered, are you feeling the Purple Rain Jordan 6? Whether these make it to your closet or not, you’d want to have some fire kicks tucked away for our next Source Kickback Series.

In case you missed it, together with our partners at Courvoisier we took over Extra Butter NY for an epic celebration of culture. So if you couldn’t make it to the first one, bring the heat out for the next one. Whether you prefer Nike, Jordan Adidas or something of a higher fashion, you never know what kicks you might see.

We know streetwear stans have been feigning for the next collection by Heron Preston, especially after that interesting PVC raincoat we peeped last season, and the hype is about to level up now that we know it’s a Carhartt WIP collaboration.

 

 The collection features an earthy-yet-grungy color palette that hones in on heavy-duty workwear, which includes paint-splattered vests, work jackets, jeans, and long-sleeve T-shirts. It looks like employees at your local construction sites will be decked out in swag this season, as the tees feature “Industry Workwear” quotes all over its layout. In addition, Carhartt’s box patch logo is placed on the rear for a nice touch of familiarity.

 

Hunter forest-infused jeans, short-sleeved T-shirts and fanny pack options are added in as well, but are they really worth dropping $400+ for them? Being a Down South native, I see a lot of people in my hometown sporting hunter-forest gear, and it only ranges from $6 to $20 at Academy Sports. However, they are used more for hunting purposes rather than fashion and everyday wear. Not hating on anyone that wants to burn holes in their pockets to cop these items — get it how you live! — but just be smart about it, guys.

All fashion-stans are hip to the subtle drip that any classic Tommy Jeans addition will do to one’s wardrobe. Upon its Spring 2018 capsule campaign release, the OG’s have switched it up from their original Futura-like font design to a handwritten font that gives the brand a fresh outtake. The collection features an “Orange Peel”, “Enamel Blue,” dark purple, and “Cerise” color palette that makes sporting a crewneck sweatshirt during those late summer nights a definite must.

 

 

Taking risks with vibrant retro colors comes as no surprise for the brand, as they are simply going back to their roots. This inclusive collection not only satisfies those breezy outings, it also caters to the scorching heat that we all will experience this summer with their everyday T-shirts.

To cop Tommy Jeans newest “Signature” collection, head over to The Chimp Store to purchase items starting at $40 USD.

Today we celebrate the life and memory of Prodigy — 1/2 of the legendary 90s rap duo Mobb Deep who passed away one year ago today.

While the Queens-bred MC will always be remembered primarily for his hard-hitting music and thought-provoking lyricism, he also was a pretty fly guy, too. Over the span of his 20+ year career in the game, the man born as Albert Johnson has put bootleg Hennessy jerseys on the map, collaborated with Supreme, and unintentionally curated one of the most diverse headwear collections in rap [Editor’s note: Just do a Google search, guys — you will rarely find a pic of him without a proper snapback, skully, or bandana!]

Keep scrolling to get a look at why Prodigy will forever be missed, both for his fresh skills on the mic and his fresh swag while out on the scene:


A post shared by Prodigy (@prodigymobbdeep) on

9. (1/2002) That time Diddy brought Mobb Deep to the shiny suit side alongside 112 for the Infamy album single “Hey Luv (Anything),” but both dudes still managed to keep their Queens-bred edge. Prodigy had on the ill jacket toward the end, too!


8. (7/2013) Hanging at Max Fish in the Lower East Side of New York City with XGames, pairing a graphic-heavy adidas tee with a matching camo bucket.

6. (6/2011) Seen here rocking this vintage Le Coq Sportif crewneck while hanging with Mobb Deep partner Havoc and G-Unit rapper Lloyd Banks backstage at HOT 97 Summer Jam 2011.


5. (4/1993) Where it all began: rocking all-black-everything and wheat Timbs on the cover of Mobb Deep’s debut LP Juvenile Hell. Been fly since the late teens!


4. (06/2017) Draped in vintage Michael Jackson tee vibes while hitting the stage with Havoc for HOT 97 Summer Jam 2017, just a week before his death.

2. (2/1995) This custom Hennessy football jersey he had on in the “Shook Ones, Pt. II” music video that had everybody in the ’90s on their custom gear steez. You can even buy your own version right now by clicking here.


1. (6/2011) Popping up on a coveted Supreme collab tee, which dropped a few months after Prodigy was released from a prison stint that went on to influence his best-selling memoir My Infamous Life


R.I.P. Prodigy — may your legacy live on through all the platforms that you influenced.

Logos have been a focal point for Nike this year. Few companies can cover their products in logos and still be desired by customers.

The latest Air Max 97  puts a stealthy spin on logo covered products. At first glance, you may think its just a blacked out 97 with red accents but when you take a closer look, limitless logos are revealed.  Matte black Nike spell-out logos dominate the upper, thus making for an interesting contrast against the black sneaker.

Meanwhile, red swooshes decorate the midsole and tongues. Red is also used on the Air Max branding which covers the signature pull tabs. You may be eager to get your feet in these so you can slip into incognito mode but you’ll have to be patient considering they haven’t been released to the U.S. market yet.

However, they have already been released overseas at select retailers. When they do make it to the U.S., expect to pay $160 USD.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the swoosh brand experiment with logos. The “Just Do It” pack for the Air Max 95 also featured multiple logo variations.

Without a doubt, Cam’ron is one of the greatest style influencers of his generation. He has already lent his style to Reebok to use for both the Ventilator and DMX Run 10. This time around, he brings the Dipset drip to Allen Iverson‘s Reebok Question.

Images of the upcoming collaboration have started to circulate via Instagram. We have become accustomed to seeing leather on this model but it appears Cam is switching things up.

Instead, a gray suede dominates the base, complemented by a purple camo pattern on the toe-box and heel. Dipset’s spell-out logo is featured on both the eyelets and lace tips.

Meanwhile, no Dipset item is complete without their signature eagle logo. Hence it is proudly displayed on the tongue. Other signature style notes include the iconic flip phone which has been silver-plated to make a unique heel accent.

In addition, the insoles offer their own unique flare. The left bare’s an artistic drawing of the sneakers, stamped with the Dipset eagle and Reebok Classic logo. The right offers a graffiti-styled “Killa Cam.” A purple rubber outsole completes the look

A release date hasn’t been announced yet but Killa Cam shared images of the sneakers on Instagram, letting fans know they can expect to see these in the fall. These #Flee4’s are already his favorite.

2018 has been a good year for the Reebok Question. Already, we have seen a Jet Life collaboration with Curen$y.  Now Killa Cam is on deck. We’ll have more news on this Cam’ron x Reebok collab as it comes available.

G-SHOCK is without a doubt the authority for dope timepieces that also utilize amazing tech specs. With the brand’s latest set of digital watches, the popular GA700 and GA800 models get reworked with a super clean, eye-grabbing gold finish.



The appropriately-titled Gold Accent Collection features a muted-out black base that allows for the gold & rose gold accents to really pop. With the GA700 models — the GA710B-1A9 comes in gold and the GA710B-1A4 in rose gold — feature a variety of cool built-in technology, including 200M water and shock resistance, five-year battery life and Hand retract function among other specs. The GA800 also has two offerings, with the GA810B-1A9 incorporating gold accents and the GA810B-1A4 getting the rose gold treatment. The specs on this one are similar to the GA700, but also include 20 LAP memory and dual time display.

All four timepieces in G-SHOCK’s super luxe Gold Accent Collection will go for $130 USD when they arrive at the beginning of June. See more pics of each model below:

When merging sportswear with streetwear, there are few athletes who can embody the combo. This is why KITH tapped Allen Iverson to model their upcoming collection with Mitchell & Ness.

After all, Iverson is the reason why the NBA enacted the dress code. He never missed an opportunity to bring the swagger of the streets to the hardwood of the NBA.

These days, NBA players enjoy rocking relaxed looks before gearing up under the lights. After seeing A.I in Kith’s latest collection it won’t be long before the newer NBA stars are rocking KITH. Even if they don’t, the stars of the street certainly will.

To KITH’s credit, they have established three flagship locations in sports biggest markets. This includes New York, Los Angeles, and Miami.

Still, KITH’s Mitchell & Ness collection has something for every athlete regardless of what sport you enjoy. Items include satin warm-up jackets and pants, Mesh batting practice jerseys, basketball shorts with functional zipper pockets. Each piece dons the signature KITH logo while subsequently showing love to the hometown colors of their three locations.

The top tier quality of Mitchell & Ness brings an authentic feel to each piece. Meanwhile, six tees and three hats complete the collection.

Expect to find this exclusive collection available this Friday (May 25) at all KITH locations and online.

Check out the lookbook below.
