Frank Ocean at Coachella 2023 was a struggle.. but a win for Mammut!
This was weird and bizarre, but at least we got to see creative mastermind Frank Ocean perform at the Coachella main stage. It was 1 hour late, it was way too short, but it was still very emotional. This speech for example. No official stream but some Social Media heroes waited for hours in the front row and hit us up with an Insta live. Besides all this Frank was wearing the Eigerjoch Light jacket by Mammut in a blue/prange colorway. This definitely was a winner!
BRICK Magazine: Record & Tape Exchange with BLXST
Brick magazine has a new interview format where their favourite artists walk us through their personal music libraries to share the songs that have soundtracked their lives. This time with rapper BLXST talking his most influential records and tapes.
HIDDEN: Hoodies from the 1950s
Famous IG moodboard HIDDEN recently uncovered some rare vintage hoodies from the 1950s. And they look anything but clean, yet so amazingly perfect. Fit, colors and cozyness. Imagine wearing a 70-year-old hoodie for the next fashion week.
Rib Cage Vest by Peder Cho for Siberia Hills
Fashion and DIY designer Peder Cho pleased us with the process video of him crafting this Rib Cage Vest. As stated this was custom made for Siberia Hills. Love to see this in the streets some time!
Stüssy x Martine Rose
What a perfect pair: Stüssy has collaborated with London-based Martine Rose on a capsule centered around the art of driving. The range features a steering wheel cover, driving gloves, a scented air freshener, a co-branded car mat set, a fringed flag, and a collaged windscreen. Everything sold out fast but it’s worth it to check out the collection anyways.
Jay-Z at the opening of Basquiat x Warhol Exhibition in Paris
None other than Jay-Z played and performed a private set to celebrate the opening of the Basquiat x Warhol exhibition in Paris. It was going to take something special for Jay-Z to dust off his mic, and the chance to perform at the opening of a new exhibit showcasing the work of Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat proved to be it.
