Check out what I snapped from the photo pit at this year’s AKIRA Fall Fashion Show. Popular looks included themes of: boxing, dark shadow, ballroom, umbrella, plaid, polos. Lots of amazing fabrics, and stunning looks – it went by in a flash! (pun intended)
For the July/August issue of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, none other than Rihanna Fenty is gracing the cover… And she looks, as always, STUNNING.
Rihanna, who whether we realize or not is cultivating herself into a fashion icon, was donned in Middle Eastern attire, covered up head-to-toe with traditional garments drowned in shimmering, beautiful jewels and detail.
Okay, before I even start to get in depth, about midway through the interview, I mention Ian Connor. For clarification, I was not referring to him as a designer, I brought him up as a part of the question. Now moving straight into the review- Being able to sit down with Gianni Mora was good experience. For Gianni only being 17 and a Junior in High School, it was very refreshing to see someone so young create such good positive attention for something he created and has a passion for. Gianni spoke about really how things have been since he dropped his sweater “Future Love” in March, and just really all about how things have been moving forward. The internet is such a powerful tool and Gianni utilizes it to the fullest while gaining more and more attention. There is much more to come from the young designer, more lines, more pieces, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw some more “Hooding”.

Finally putting rumors to rest, Supreme officially releases the news of their Spring/Summer 2014 collaboration with Nike on the Air Foamposite 1. Having photos leak months prior, the set features baroque print sneakers in two colorways (Red and Black), a bold but not unusual concept led by New York brand Supreme. Although the sneakers already had dudes thirsting, Supreme and Nike also threw in some matching basketball jerseys and shorts (you know for all those who REALLY want to up their stunting game).
Info on Release: The collection to drops in-store at the brand’s New York, London and Los Angeles locations, and online on April 3. Japan can look forward to the release two days after on April 5.
Regardless of how gaudy the detailing appears to be, the hype behind this collaboration will surely have people pitching tents and filling coolers days before April 3. But hey, who can blame them? Not everyone can be the first to swag everyone out on Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, and probably revive Xanga to show off their new cops.
Good luck to those trying to get a piece of the collection for their Spring/Summer wardrobe. But side note, if any of y’all accidentally cop a size too small, I know an Asian mami in need of some new gear aka helpthisbrokeassbitchout.
Giving us another drop, Saint Alfred never seems to disappoint. Named one of the best store fronts, Saint Alfred continues to put Chicago onto the freshest gear, this time with Stussy.

Our photographer Stan Perry documented some killer looks Sunday night at the sold out Supersonic Boom F/W 2013 AKIRA Runway Show featuring hair & makeup by Mario Tricoci. The show depicted both retro prints & color schemes and well-tailed craftsmanship in pieces consisting of leathers, chains, furs…in addition, a few eye catching heels from the collab between Kristin Cavallari & Chinese Laundry. A number of sponsors supported the show with goodies as event proceeds went toward the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago supporting the empowerment of women and diversity. Brickheadz entertained at the pre-show; following the show was an after-party and after, after-party filled with many of Chicago’s influential industry folks in the fashion and entertainment scenes.
Browse our photos on Pinterest (there are many more!) and take a journey through our photographer’s lense of the captivating evening of not only the beautiful models and fresh looks, but also the behind the scenes experience backstage and at the afterparty. Enjoy!
I just fell out of my chair when I saw this shoe. The third shoe to come out of the greatlest love story ever, Derrick Rose and Adidas. So much personal detail and personal special attention has been put into the shoe. Good both on and off the court, the shoe features an oversized tongue emblazoned with his familty tree and paying homage to the (notorious) Englewood neighborhood, where he grew up. Hopefully, residents of the current neighborhood can see this symbol that there is a way out of crime that has recently cause the death of many, including a murder with fingers pointing to Chief Keef.
The shoe features a brand new sillouette with synthetic and nubuck leather. Expected to release on October 4th, the shoe will be priced at $160. The initial release will feature black/white/red or grey/black/red color combos. Seven more colors will be released closer to Christmas season.
What color are you going to get?
