With Nike recently showing love to its popular Air Max 1 and Air Max 95 silhouettes, it was only a matter of time before another fresh Air Max 97 release made its way on our radar.
The crisp “Summit White” version of the AM97 arrives in perfect timing for the impending season ahead, featuring updates to the original design without losing key specs like the reflective 3M piping on the upper. The black accents found on the Air unit and outsole save these from being your typical run-of-the-mill white sneaker, ultimately making for a nice contrast that puts emphasis on the grooves in the shoe’s detailing.
Official details are slim for the release date and price of the Nike Air Max 97 “Summit White,” but so far it’s expected to arrive later this month.
I'm excited to be working on a new season of the Portrait Session podcast in partnership with Armani Exchange Connected. With the introduction of the hybrid smartwatch by Armani Exchange — a basic watch, now redefined with tech utility for effortless style and function — I wanted to connect with the stylish men I photograph on the street by bringing them into the studio for a portrait and have a chat about their particular approach to their personal style, work life and play.
In this episode, I connected with Kevin Hunter — a New York expat currently calling Sydney home. His love and appreciation for fashion has led him into a world of creating beautiful images as a stylist, inspired by the magazines he use to flip through as a kid. With gigs at W magazine and most recently Esquire under his belt, he’s now looking to the other side of the world for a new source of inspiration, and in doing so, has discovered so much more about what he’s looking for in life.
After dropping the listening party merch for his new album ye — available now on vinyl and physical CD as seen below — Kanye West keeps the party favors coming with yet another capsule set – this time from the L.A. listening party for his collaborative Kid Cudi-assisted album, Kids See Ghosts.
The pieces in this set were originally given out to attendees at the listening, featuring a coach jacket, hoodie, and long-sleeve T-shirt designed by OFF-WHITE founder Virgil Abloh and renowned Japanese artist Takashi Murakami. The graphic used primarily on the merch, which plays off the actual Kids See Ghosts album cover, shows an alternate color edition of Murakami’s Ukiyo-e style woodblock print image. Further design specs include a “Kids See Ghosts” spraypainted motif going down the sleeve and the listening event details etched on the upper chest area.
Pieces from the Kanye West x Kid Cudi Kids See Ghost album merch range from $65 USD to $150 USD, so cop those along with physical copies of ye right now at shop.kanyewest.com.
True sneakerheads can remember the severe hype around the PlayStation x Nike Air Force 1 that kinda-sorta dropped back in 2006. The shoe was exclusive to a “friends and family” list only, but now it looks like the urban legend will see a more general release sooner than anyone expected.
An updated version of the now-iconic collaboration is set to arrive just ahead of the 2018 E3 video game convention, complete with a revamped upper and changes in the colorway and materials used to construct the shoe. According to Nike, almost all samples from the first round of the initial premium leather version were destroyed as part of the production process, so this new update will definitely make for a welcomed return. There’s even a rendered prototype of the new design via sneaker info expert @py_rates on Twitter:
*LEAK ALERT*: @Nike x @PlayStation will be back later this year with a second collab, this time featuring the Air Force 1. Let us know what you think to out mock ups and how excited you are to cop! Please RT & Follow for upcoming info on future drops.#NoMoreSecretspic.twitter.com/8XySsWmNpE
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.
With the rise in chunky sneakers bringing way to a sporty, grunge-like flavor in our daily wardrobes, Maison Margiela blesses us with another luxury trainer that will burn heavy on the pockets.
Their latest multi-colored sneaker hones in on a deconstructed look, with its razed shoelaces playing off a duct-taped sole that emphasizes the reconstructed look of the sneaker. This silhouette in all its eccentric glory serves up a mash-up of materials, ranging from leather to knit, with a construction that looks like it’s being held together by a hot glue gun. Hints of green and red add a little spice to the black and white base, making these a fun shoe to look at even if you lose your wind looking at the price tag.
Even though designer sneakers are never a necessity to be fly, the Margiela Fall/Winter 2018 Fusion Sneaker is a worthy addition for those living life boldly with a bit of edge. Head over to Bergdorf Goodman to purchase them now for $1,645 USD.
What a time to be booked and busy for athlete and entrepreneur Serena Williams, as she makes a victorious return to the tennis courts after winning her first match at the French Open just last week.
Coming back from the excitement of the birth of her daughter and her Grand Slam match triumph, Williams has a lot to celebrate, the most recent accomplishment being the launch of her debut fashion collection, “Serena.”
The Compton-native is no rookie to the fashion industry. She has collaborative collections with HSN and Nike under her belt. However, “Serena” is her first rendezvous into proprietary fashion. The collection of pieces launched is part of a 12-piece curated capsule and features styles that range from comfy athleisure to trendy, ready-to-wear chic attire.
In reference to “Serena,” the “Sorry” video co-star hopes that this sartorial offering will empower and inspire women to express their creativity and individuality in all avenues. The Being Serena star also states, “I absolutely love this collection because it represents all the facets of my life as an athlete, an entrepreneur, and now, a mother. We’re all on a journey that delights us with highs and challenges us with twists and turns, which shapes us into who we are and who we want to become. I’ve learned to embrace and celebrate this process of individual growth and dedicate this collection to all women who want to join me in showing the world our true selves.”
This initial limited edition capsule from Alexis Olympia’s mother comes ahead of the 75-piece collection that will release this summer and fall. “Serena” will feature trendy and affordable pieces with prices ranging from $35 to $250.
Shop “Serena” now at serenawilliams.com. What items are your favorites? What looks do you think the future collections from Serena will feature?
Vintage apparel has taken over the fashion game, particularly for those that want an authentic ’90s-inspired look. While the recycled fashion market usually doesn’t payout for the big brands being sold at your local Beacon’s Closet, The North Face just figured out a loophole that offers an upgrade to upcycled goods.
In partnership with The Renewal Workshop, The North Face Renewed will take defective and/or returned garments and repair everything to nearly-new state, in addition to selling them at a mark-down from its original retail price. The new program was enacted as a response to The North Face’s initiative to move towards producing garments on a recycling format, which benefits both the ecosystem and the brand’s business model overall.
The launch phase will run from now until September, so shop through the massive stock of refurbished goods over at The North Face Renewed right now.
