#FF Balenciaga Copying Ruff Ryder Logo?!

Yes you read that correctly. Balenciaga, which is a great brand with great ideas, however is now under fire for straight up copying Ruff Ryder’s logo; and the person who called them out on it?

Fun Fact: Swizz Beatz was actually the producer behind the famous “Ruff Ryder’s Anthem.” Also, his uncle is the one who founded the group back in the late-80s.

You can see from the Balenciaga’s Spring 2018 Collection which debuted in Men’s Fashion Week just a couple of days ago in Paris

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that designers have taken from the hip hop culture. Just last month Gucci was accused of designing a jacket that looked too similar to that of Dapper Dan’s. Even though it does get quite tricky with this case because Dapper Dan was copying off of Gucci as well all the way back in 1989! Love to see how designers are ahead of their time!

What the IKEA?!

You may have noticed all this random IKEA merch all over Instagram and has same reaction as I did, like What the? LOL

Well I just had to do my research and this is what I got: This hype all started when the famous Vetements brand teamed up with Balenciaga, has taken to the all-known blue IKEA Frakta bags and made them into merch! Almost indestructible and waterproof merch! Lol

Balenciaga and Vetements teamed up to make this $2,145 copy of the IKEA bag!

IKEA’s response?

#FF 90s Nostalgia

I am sure you have noticed by now that the 90s is making a comeback, from the sweaters and sweatsuits to the shoes, the 90s are definitely back! With that being said, of course a bunch of companies will be making some of their own products to stay in the know. Guess, Reebok, and Champion have all already been making it especially with the help of promoting by top celebrities.

Esprit, a brand that you may have overlooked at one point is definitely one to watch now:

Definitely loving the pastel colors and the stripes! How about you guys? What are your favorites?

#MM BECCA X Chrissy

If you are into highlighters as am I then you would know that one of the top highlighter brands is BECCA! This brand is famous for most of their products containing shimmer but not that glitter type of shimmer but more like that shine from within type look that everyone loves or what people call that “BECCA Glow.” I have their famous Backlight Priming Filter and I absolutely love the glow effect that it leaves. You can even wear it by itself.

Now BECCA is working with the amazing mom and multitasker, Chrissy Teigen! They are making this Limited Edition Glow Face Palette, yes Limited Edition, that honestly looks like my next summer palette! Their site breaks down what is included in the palette beautifully here:

BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in “Rose Gold” (which is actually Chrissy’s favorite) | New Luminous Blush in “Hibiscus Bloom” (golden pink coral) | New Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in “Beach Nectar” (juicy apricot shade infused with gold) | and their New Sunlit Bronzer in “Malibu Soleil” (medium amber for that “sun-kissed look”

Release date has not been announced yet but you know that once I know, you will know! The price for the palette will be $46.

#FF Supreme X MJ

Now if at first thought, you thought of MJ like Michael Jackson than you are right! Looks like there are some teases that Supreme will be doing a collaboration with the great Michael Jackson! I did not know this but Supreme has done something like this before, like with Muhammed Ali.

The collection should include hoodies and tees! So far from what I have seen, looks like they are taking a few pics of MJ and are putting them in the center of their tees and hoodies. As soon as I find out more I will be updating you ladies and gents!

Art + Fashion = LV x JK

If you love art and you love fashion then you will love this new collab of Louis Vuitton and Jeff Koons called “Masters”. Jeff Koons is an artist who

“has brought imagery from his long-standing ‘Gazing Ball’ painting – a series of large-scale hand painted reproductions of works by the Old Masters – to a range of Louis Vuitton products”

fragonard

This collection features purses,, totes, and even book bags with Classical paintings such as the all-time famous Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci (c 1503-1506) , Wheatfield With Cypresses by Vincent Van Gogh (c 1889) , The Tiger Hunt by Peter Paul Rubens (c 1615-1616), Mars, Venus and Cupid by Titian (c 1546) , and Young Girl Playing With Her Dog by Jean-Honoré Fragonard (c 1770).

How much will one of these bags sent you back? Prices ranges from $585 to $4000.

Just a little reminder…

We have talked about Rihanna’s Fenty X Puma collection before (if not, don’t worry just click here!) Well I just wanted to remind you that it drops today! Her collection includes almost everything you would see RiRi wear herself. You will see oversized sweatshirts, laced up leggings and those shoes! And with somewhat affordable prices ranging from $80-$150 you Can Not go wrong! Make sure to make your way to her site and Puma’s as well! SIX:02

Breaking News!

I know I have you guys used to #TBT on Thursdays but I just found out some great news that I just have to share with you all immediately! I think I can make the general statement that we all love H&M right? (I used to have a bad relationship with the store before- in that I used to feel that it was overrated for the quality I purchased from them but they have come a long way & now like any good comeback they are way better than before) That being said, how about if I were to tell you that H&M is coming out with a new brand!?

The name of their new brand, “ARKET.” The meaning of this word?? Well translated from Swedish means “sheet of paper”…Whaaattt?! Well it actually means more than that in the Nordic tradition, a blank sheet, represents “a sense of optimism” for the new brand. Arket will be a collection of women’s, men’s, and children’s RTW (ready-to-wear) apparel and accessories. They are going to have house goods and other items from other new brands as well.

arket

 

Arket’s prices are pretty affordable, ranging from 39 euros (about $42) to 115 euros (about $124).

Sadly, Arket’s first flagship will not open here at NYC but will open on Regent Street in London. Good news though is that this isn’t something we have to wait too long for because they are opening in the early fall! I am sure we can also see them online so I will keep you updated on that as well xo
