GQ previews their shoot with The Weeknd in which he wore clothes from the “Yeezy Season 1” collection.
Fabolous has been on a legendary jersey run this summer and continues with a “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper” Warriors jersey.
It used to be that the great pop stars with fashion and style gave us small variations on one grand theme. Tina Turner: minidresses and honey tresses. Janis Joplin: boas, bangles, and bell-bottoms. Cher: spangled striptease getups with mythic Third World touches. Nowadays fashion isn’t about the grand theme, it’s about juxtaposition, and it’s filled with allusions to movie and art history; to music and dance styles; to iconographies of race and ethnicity, religion and gender. Madonna opened the door to this collage approach. Today we see it in the wigs, masks, and sculpted costumes of Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, the restless dazzle of Rihanna’s couture choices. And, of course, in the music, dance, decor, and looks of the ultimate streamed collage: Beyoncé.
Beyonce is the third African American female to be featured on Vogue’s iconic September issues.
You’ve seen her as Deena Jones. You’ve seen her as Honey Bee, and Foxxy Cleopatra, and, of course, Sasha Fierce. Now Beyoncé takes on the role of September issue cover star in this interpretive look at the cover story.
Featuring a luxurious premium suede and mesh construction dipped in multiple purple pantones, the “Purple Tape” N.9000 brings together all of the callouts featured on the original cassette tape. The co-branded Packer x Raekwon x Diadora tongue label is direct drawback to the “Parental Advisory” tag featured on the explicit version of OB4CL with “1995” side embroidery paying homage to the release year of the album. Additional features include “side 1″ & “side 2″ embroidery rear of both shoes and corresponding album track listing both footbeds, clear purple tinted rubber outsoles, metallic silver midsole and 4 shoe lace options sure to make the tape “pop”.
Caping off the last leg of the “OB4BL” 20th Anniversary tour, look for the made in Italy Packer x Raekwon x Diadora N.9000 “Purple Tape” to launch next Thursday – August 20th – exclusively at S.O.B.’s NYC with a special added last tour date concert performance by Raekwon later that evening.
