It’s not like I’m breaking shit in the house all day.” justifying the classic’s funky-fresh colors on the removable logos. Expect these sneakers to retail for $150 a pair and to sell-out very quickly. So don’t be tardy to the party on this one, check them out here.

The entire assembly consists of jackets, leggings, ski pants, sweaters, as well as beanies. Vonn shared her excitement for the collaboration stating, “I’m thrilled to finally share my new Under Armour Lindsey Vonn Signature Collection. The Under Armour team gave me freedom to express myself throughout the entire ideation and design process; I love being able to ski in looks that not only perform, but are also fashion-forward and different from anything else you would see on the slopes. Under Armour helped me bring my vision to life and the incredible amount of thought and detail that went into each piece is what makes this collection so special.” Pre-orders are currently being accepted for the partial release via UA’s website, but don’t expect the complete winter collection to release until 2018, retailing from $40 to $500.

Reebok and the founder of Pyer Moss, Kerby Jean-Raymond are collaborating for a two-way release of unisex apparel. Reebok Classic’s GM, Todd Krinsky voiced his enthusiasm stating, “Pyer Moss exudes the type of fearlessness and authenticity that Reebok Classic stands for. We are excited to welcome Kerby Jean-Raymond and his designers to the Reebok family and look forward to working together on the upcoming collection.” If you’ve been sleeping on Jean-Raymond’s skills, you should know that the Pyer Moss label isn’t just a regular clothing label; just as J. Cole isn’t just another rapper. Pyer Moss is a conscience label that breaths social awareness with every article of clothing made. Jean-Raymond thinks of his brand as an “art project” or “a timely social experiment”. He recently stated his thoughts regarding the new partnership stating, “All it took was one conversation to know that Reebok was the right home for our team. We are really excited for everything we have coming up.” The collaborated capsules are forecasted to launch February of 2018 and then again August 2018.

Supreme and the North Face label have joined forces to release their new fall collection. The capsule includes sweatshirts, jackets, tees, blankets, as well as accessories ranging from hats to backpacks. Nearly the entire capsule is made up of water resistance nylons, enabling a good fight against weather or terrain conditions. The collection retails from $54 to $498, and is available now at all Supreme locations in New York, Brooklyn, London, Paris, Los Angeles, and Japan. You can also cop the capsule on their website here.

Founder and creative director for the Alice + Olivia label, Stacey Bendet Eisner celebrated the launch of her new AO.LA collection in Los Angeles last week. If you know anything about the Alice + Olivia brand, then you are more than aware of the 70’s retro vibes that drapes over the entire label, the AO.LA is no exception. This newest clothing line consists of graphic tees, leather outerwear, kimonos, as well as various jean flavors. The collection is sold exclusively at Alice + Olivia stores, online, and retailers such as Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. The current line retails from $135 to $1095, but this is only the beginning as more apparel will be added to AO.LA over time.

J.C. Penney’s has announced dropping Russell Simmons Argyleculture clothing line from their store, stating “In light of the recent allegations against Russell Simmons, J.C. Penney has decided to discontinue selling Argyleculture merchandise.” I have to admit, I was caught off guard when Russell Simmons hit my social timeline for sexual misconduct toward model Keri Claussen Khalighi and screenwriter Jenny Lumet – fuck shit at its finest. The retailer’s announcement comes shortly after Simmons announced he was stepping down from all of his businesses, including Def Jam Records and Tantris. Even though the J.C. Penny’s has pulled all Argyleculture merchandise down from their shelves online merchants such as Ebay and Amazon is still retailing Simmon’s clothing line.

Miley Cyrus posted a tease a couple of weeks ago on Instagram regarding her new collaboration with Converse. This not being Cyrus’ first rodeo with the footwear retailer, she debuted sneaker samples on the Gram with the caption, “Are you freaking out?!?! Because I am!!!!!! @converse collab! Bubble gum glitter high tops!” The prototypes revealed were of the unisex black/white bandana lows, the pink glittered stax, the white with glitter lows, and the bubblegum glittered hi-tops Cyrus mentioned in her post caption. As of today, there’s been no confirmation from Converse on the where, if, or when we should see the release, but they did like her posts, so I’m hypothesizing a release for some time in 2018.
