It’s a WRAP for New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2019-19! Next stop, London, but before we get to the UK, let’s revisit some of the BEST SHOWS of the WEEK in case you missed out!
This season marked Raf’s one-year anniversary in New York, holding a spot as the week’s biggest headliner. Placing everything into context, the collection, dubbed “Youth In Motion,” took cues from Uli Edel’s cult 1981 film Christiane F., which chronicles teenage drug abuse during Cold War-era Germany, and Cookie Mueller and Glenn O’Brien’s mid-1980s tragic-comic play Drugs. The outerwear, tartan suiting, satin cargo pants and latex evening gloves were a particular highlight, and while the literal references presented via the graphic pieces – “Drugs,” “XTC,” “LSD,” “GHB,” “2C-B” – were controversial, they weren’t done in vain. Raf always seeks to raise a dialogue about the things that inspire him, how you react to them afterwards only supplement the story he’s trying to tell.
Simon’s runway was a juxtaposition of classic opulence and contemporary looks for a modern day gentlemen. WATCH the FULL SHOW after the JUMP! Continue reading The BEST of #NYFW Fall/Winter 2018-19 via #MarcJacobs #MichaelKors #OscarDeLaRenta #TheBlonds #RafSimons & MORE! [vid]→
Drake’s new video–his latest INITIATIVE is one of the BIGGEST in hip hop history to date. Over the past few weeks, Drake has been very philanthropic and charitable in his everyday life. Now we understand what all of these acts were leading up to. At the beginning of his new video for “God’s Plan”, it starts off explaining that his team gave away all $996,631.90 USD of the video’s budget, which would explain the string of charitable gestures that Drake has taken part in recently.
The resulting visual features some of Drake’s big gestures, including paying for stranger’s groceries, donating $50k towards a student’s college tuition fees and supporting struggling families and more. Take a look!
Remy Ma is BACK and I think she finally has a HIT! That wasn’t shade, it was REAL. “Wake Me Up” was ehhh, good for starters, but I think the Chris Brown-assisted ‘Melanin Magic (Pretty Brown)’ may just be the TRICK to position her on the CHARTS for the release of her album ‘7 Winters and 6 Summers’.
