NEWS IN Kanye West
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 !! Read the rest of this entry »

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. Read the rest of this entry »
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 ! Read the rest of this entry »
After weeks of anticipation and so much mistery surrounding the show, Kanye West’s first ever womenswear collection finally debuted yesterday evening at Paris Fashion Week! I could not wait to see what Ye was able to give us, which models would be on the runway, who would be on the front row etc… There it is ! All unfolded to your eyes. “From layered white pantsuits to plunging exposed zipper bondage dresses to jaguar rhinestone encrusted jackets, Kanye’s spring 2012 “Dw” collection left no corner of womenswear unturned.” says the first critic. My first thought is that is profoundly inspired by Céline and that it’s not bad at all. Judge by yourself by looking to every single look in the photo gallery below! Go ahead, take a peek at his clothes, and let us know what you think ! Read the rest of this entry »
Maybach Car in “Otis” video clip:
Earlier this week we talked you about the release of Kanye West and Jay-z last album, Watch the throne. Watching the first video clip of the new opus, Otis (click to watch it), I couldn’t help writing a post about the astonishing customized Maybach 57 they drive! Crazy project, money waste you might think, you’d better think again! They actually had this Maybach 57 customized in order to sell it on auction and send the money to help tackle the East African drought disaster.
Let’s speculate about the price of this unique Maybach 57 in Otis clip: what do you think, knowing that the Maybach 57 production model costs no less than $500,000? I would bet for at least $1M!! Who can beat it ?! Read the rest of this entry »
