DONDA’s Creative Director and Co-Owner of RSVP Gallery, Virgil Abloh looks like the man to follow closely. He’s a Chicago native and Kanye West’s longtime personal Art Director. You understand he’s the guy responsible for this street-couture movement that mixes luxury fashion (Givenchy, Alexander Wand, Chanel…) with traditional hip-hop ornaments. We’d spotted Kanye and ASAP Mob members wearing some of Abloh’s Pyrex clothing back in may but missed the train. We won’t miss it twice though as we have the link and looks from the latest Pyrex Vision offerings !! SHOP at RSVP Gallery right now !!

Ice-T gets us behind the scenes with some of Hip Hop’s living legends with his documentary, Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap.

“Ice-T takes us on an intimate journey into the heart and soul of hip-hop with the legends of rap music. This performance documentary goes beyond the stardom and the bling to explore what goes on inside the minds, and erupts from the lips, of the grandmasters of rap. Recognized as the godfather of Gangsta rap, Ice-T is granted unparalleled access to the personal lives of the masters of this artform that he credits for saving his life. Interspersed with the performers’ insightful, touching, and often funny revelations are classic raps, freestyle rhymes, and never before heard a cappellas straight from the mouths of the creators. What emerges is a better understanding of, and a tribute to, an original American art form that brought poetry to a new generation.

Kanye West renews his collaboration with Nike with the Nike Air Yeezy 2. Although I usually like retro Jordan sneakers (and I’m not a huge fan of recent Jordan releases), I really digg this futurist wolf grey and pale lime soled pair of shoes. They will be available on April 13 so you’d better start camping in front of a Nike store if you want to make sure you get one. Tomorrow will be to late already !
