The Golden Globes this year extended past the TV shows, and movies nominated, actresses brought activists as their plus ones, while most of hollywood wore black in solidarity against sexual harassment. But what might have been the stand out moment of the night, was Oprah’s inspiring speech reminding girls that “a new day is on the horizon.” Following the memorable speech, rumors circulated that Oprah might be running for president in 2020. While she may not have responded to the rumors, female streetwear brand, HLZBLZ, is already paying tribute to the media industry icon by releasing an “Oprah 2020″ hoodie and long sleeved t-shirt. The offering resembles the Bernie Sanders 2016 presidential campaign logo, which Balenziaga paid tribute to in their fall/winter 2017 men’s collection. The tee and hoodie incorporates red, white and blue hues, with Oprah’s name printed on the chest.Screen Shot 2018-01-09 at 3.26.41 PM Screen Shot 2018-01-09 at 3.26.55 PM

Although his influences may not strikingly stand out in his work, the pieces are evocative and striking. His exhibits have used Google’s weather service data to create art.

Mens Nike SF Air Force 1

In Fall 2016 nike turned their iconic basketball sneaker the Air Force 1 into a lifestyle sneaker. The militarized version of the Air Force 1 was redone with a high-top extension with a distinct dual-strap at the ankles. Now Nike is back with two new tonal color ways. The black gum corollary features a premium tumbled leather construction, to separate itself from the original Black Gum color way. A ballistic nylon adds wether resistance, while the traditional outsole unit still in place, with black trickled into it, elevating the tonal look of the shoe. The Tan Gum color way has the same characteristics as the the black version, with the tan color making its way down into the midsole to tighten that tonal overall look. Both of these color ways will be available at rime’s Brooklyn location on January 19th at 5pm.
