While everyone is still salivating over the attention loving twerking of Miley Cyrus, I’ve been hooked on to this younger, mysterious and much much much more talented artist from New Zealand named Lorde. This up-and-commer is only 16 years old and her debut album entitled “Pure Heroine”, which is launching on Sept. 30th is exactly what it is!! Her first single “Royals” has been on constant repeat, in the shower, at work, on the train, wherever. The song was apparently written by the artist in 30 minutes, now how dope is that for a girl her age. The video for “Royals” is brilliant too!! So simple and yet so effective in capturing your attention. In my eyes, she has the raw talents and the tools to do great things, hopefully she keeps making music like this and never twerks her way to the top of the charts lol.
Follow her on FB, Twitter, Tumblr and IG.

Remember those gym shoes we used to rock in the 90’s as youngins?? Well, Raf Simons and Adidas brought them back and better than ever for their first collaboration for fall. The retro silhouettes and space-age details make up a dope ass pair of high fashion running sneakers that go with anything in my opinion. I can already see myself wearing a pair with a suit for work and maybe with some sweats for the weekends. They dropped a few weeks ago and are retailed at nearly $400, done up in numerous color-ways and styles. Getting my pair this weekend!

Sad to say bye bye to Korea, but I’m stoked for Belgium and all the amazing designers coming out of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts from Antwerp. Check out the post below from OC’s blog:
Hieperderpiep hoera! (Translation: hip, hip, hooray! And no, we did not make that up.) KOREA, it’s been amazing, but a year’s gone by and the time has come to welcome a new featured country to Opening Ceremony. Introducing Belgium! We couldn’t be more psyched to welcome the tiny European country with a major legacy of groundbreaking designers (paging the Antwerp Six!) to OC’s clothing racks. This fall, look out for innovative young designers like Cédric Charlier, Chauncey, Christian Wijnants, and Ek Thongprasert, alongside established greats like Dries Van Noten, Raf Simons, Veronique Branquinho, Walter Van Beirendonck, Stephan Schneider, and Bernhard Willhelm––just in time for the 350th anniversary of Belgium’s Royal Academy for Science and the Arts!
USA vs. Belgium will also feature some super special exclusives, all hand-picked by OC’s globetrotting founders,CAROL and HUMBERTO: Bernhard Willhelm pieces with an archive dinosaur print, collections by graduates of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and La Cambre, and so much more. To boot, Royal Academy graduate and stylist, David Vandewal, will create original collages inspired by the history of Belgian fashion for windows and in-store installations for Opening Ceremony US and London stores this September.
The latest from Riccardo Tisci’s Givenchy has been the most buzzed about shows for Spring 2014. Sticking to his guns with his fine tailoring mixed with street wear inspired silhouettes, it was his dramatic prints once again that did all the walking and talking. Techno tribal was the theme in mind and the prints echoed the insides of R2D2 mashed up with bold stripes, all done up in vibrantly shades of reds and blues. Hands down definitely one of the best shows of the season, every blog and website could not stop raving about the show. As much as I love checking out every look down the runway, it was nice to come across these backstage photos from Fashionsing.com.
