Metagirl.Studio’s New Balance 610
Introducing the New Balance 610 with a dreamy touch – adorned with bows and pearls by Italian sneaker artist Cate Mongillo, aka Metagirl. Handcrafted with care and carefully selected materials, it’s sneaker couture at its finest. Remix and upcycle culture makes base and mainstream models so unique and a highlight to wear for the upcoming festival season. Check out her Instagram and you can purchase the shoes on Etsy.
Tyler The Creator on the RapRadar Podcast
Tyler, The Creator, expanded his Grammy Award-winning album “Call Me If You Get Lost” with his latest project “The Estate Sale” and maybe another new album around the corner. In addition to music, Tyler has ventured into television, clothing, and fragrances. In an engaging interview with RapRadar, the Odd Future frontman delves into topics such as rap debates, NBA Youngboy, DJ Drama, family, fame, social issues, and much more. I really like the part where he talks typical “Name your big 3 of rap”-questions.
LFDY x Trigema – Made In Germany
LFDY and Trigema, two companies that might not look alike it at first sight but are driven by shared values. Both come together in a collaboration that embodies their commitment to quality and integrity. Trigema, a German sportswear brand with a century-long legacy, manufactures functional items in its rural Burladingen factory, holding true to its core values without any external investors. Led by Wolfgang Grupp, the family-owned business maintains its strong ties to the community, building a lasting heritage for future generations. Live Fast Die Young, known for its loyalty, straightforwardness, and independent approach, aligns perfectly with Trigema’s dedication to craftsmanship, creating a partnership rooted in excellence.
G-SHOCK x Billionaire Boys Club 20th anniversary
Billionaire Boys Club and G-SHOCK join forces to commemorate their milestones with a limited-edition watch capsule. The collaboration breathes new life into G-SHOCK’s iconic DW-5600 and DW-6900 models, infused with BBC’s vibrant and playful graphics. These watches boast G-SHOCK’s signature water and shock resistance, and each piece is presented in a specially designed collector’s box that complements the watch’s unique design. The BBC x G-SHOCK capsule collection will be released this week on June 16, available for purchase at BBC ICECREAM flagships and their official online store.
Reminder: Pharrell’s Louis Vuitton Premiere is 1 week away
Mark your calendars for June 20th – 1 week from now. That is when Pharrell Williams will debut his first collection for Louis Vuitton. All eyes on his creative direction and what he was cooking up the past weeks and months. We can’t wait to see all the collaborators he brought on board and the ideas he had to lead the way for LV.
