Converse has made it so that you can rock your chucks in the winter and keep your feet warm. The latest design from Converse is modeled after a down jacket. Instead of their signature canvas, they’ve made the classic hightop out of nylon , and incorporated with feather and down materials. The slight details of suede and the red and blue pull tab on the tongue adds for a modern take. The quilted effect rounds out the effect of a down jacket, with the warmth to match.
After success with her first collection for Puma, Solange is set to release two collections this holiday season. The first will be The Wild Wonders collection on December 1st. She has enlisted the help of her friends, Hisham Bharoocha, Gerlan Mercel and the design team behind the line William Okpo, Darleen and Lizzy Okpo, all of whom helped with the Girls of Blaze collection that dropped February this year. Each of which has put their spin on the Wild Rebel theme. Each designer used a mix of materials, natural fabrics, bursts of colors and graphics on the PUMA Suede and the XT2 to create a vibe that is Solange.
The Wild Wonders collection will be available at rime on December 1st.
Staple is known for their collaborative projects, from New Balance to Kangol, and even Shake Shack. Yes the burger joint. Now they’ve teamed up with DC based artist Naturel. The neo-cubist’s work is inspired by Hip-Hop, not just the music, but the culture. So the marriage between street-wear inspired brand, Staple and the Hip-Hop culture infused artist, Naturel, seems to be a right fit. As Staple drops the limited line which showcases Naturel’s sharp edged and straight lined interpretations of Biggie, roses and even Staple’s pigeon logo, we’re already hoping for more collaborations between these two.
The limited edition pieces are at rime, now. Come pick up a few pieces before they’re all gone.
Instead of getting trampled by a crowd of people at Target or Walmart on Black Friday come in and pick up these babies. The essential East Coast sneaker has become even more New York with its Knicks inspired orange and blue theme. Every New Yorker should have these, and if you’re just visiting, cop them too. In the words of Wale; “foamposites if you aiint got em then you penny-loafing!” So come in and get them on the 26th so you have some crisp footwear to wear to thanksgiving dinner.
If you missed our Adidas X Rita Ora launch event, shame on you, but don’t worry there’ll be more events to come. The shop was packed with every one trying to get their hands on the new collaboration between the pop star and Adidas. Dj Quiana Parks spun some happening tunes while party goers danced, chat it up with each other and shopped. Check out the photos below of the event, and be jealous you missed the madness that is a rime event.
Everyone was getting into the groove. Must’ve been the champagne.
