Rime Brooklyn’s Storefront Mural

Rime’s Brooklyn location has a storefront mural designed by artist Rinze. The piece embodies the rime aesthetic, its a cluster of sneaker’s, boldly displaying love for sneaker culture. Rinze honed in on his mural skills while based in Amsterdam. He worked on creating art murals for stores and restaurants. His commercial success includes clients like Cannon and Mercedes, as well as many other Fortune 500 companies where he worked as an art director. Inspiration for his art comes from fashion and music, shaping his personal aesthetic. He takes music and the art of experiences of life as influences for his work. We over at rime are extremely pleased with the piece currently at our Brooklyn location.

Rihanna’s FENTY X PUMA Bow Slipper And Bow Sneaker Are Available At Rime

Rihanna continues to dazzle the fashion set with her collaboration collections with PUMA. The latest drop is the FENTY Bow Sneaker and the Bow Slide. Influenced by the luxe Parisian days of Marie-Antoinette, the Bow Slide is the classic soccer slide elevated by the satin bow that adorns the slide strap and the satin foam backing for comfort. The Bow Sneaker is a statement piece of footwear for any occasion. The Bow Sneaker takes PUMA’s old school running silhouette, the Trinomial, and packs it with a stand out punch. The all over satin tonal sneaker features a delicate satin bow and the PUMA by Rihanna signature tongue patch. Both silhouettes are available at rime locations in pink and olive color-ways. You can also find them here at the online store.

Nike LunarEpic Flyknit Low 2

The descendant of the LunarEpic Flynkit Low is here, with focal point still being its intricately knitted, weaved upper. A flexible, breathable Flyknit upper wraps the foot like a second skin, with targeted areas providing lightweight support where its needed most. It is detailed with matching flywire, branding Swooshes across the side panels and more branding on the tongue, rounding out the look of the sneaker is a white full length laser-spied Lunarlon sole unit, just like its predecessors. The soft, contoured Lunarlon midsole has precision-lasered that collapse during foot strike, that delivers a smooth transition from heel to toe. The pressure-mapped laser cut outsole amplifies the cushioning exactly where it’s needed, dispersing impact across the foot. These are currently available at rime locations.

Women Marching

Saturday women around the world, from Washington to Lisbon, marched in unity to voice their frustration. Joined by their peers, anyone with sense, they all marched to protest against the sexist and discriminatory tone of Trump’s election campaign. Not every feminist is white, middle class, cis-gendered and able-bodied. The marches were attended by men women, gay and straight, in all sizes and colors. In solidarity these women, people, humans marched on the first day of Trump’s presidency, united in their diversity. They came out in large numbers to resist what the new POTUS represents, the embarrassing facets of American culture, that it’s not okay to demean anyone that isn’t like you, and that that strongly included women. It was the largest inaugural protest in history, nearing around 3.3 million. Many irate at one of the most deplorable comments made by Trump about grabbing women, a comment that proved that Trump was a misogynist that takes what he wants. These women marched to  overcome the tradition of silence, letting women and the next generation know that they have the right to speak up for themselves, to stand against inequality and hatred for minorities. It was a march about change, about changing the world and solidarity with those fighting for freedom everywhere, for those who believe in human rights. Unity was the message. Unified they were, unified to protect fundamental rights, unified to stand up for women, unified for equal opportunities. They were unified to show that the President of the USA was elected after bragging about sexually assaulting women, and they weren’t okay with that. They were showing the world that they weren’t going to keep quiet on women’s issues. There was power in the numbers. They were marching to fight for progress and a future of inclusion and love instead of hate and nostalgic conservatism. But for sure no one felt alone, instead there was an energy of hope, anger, power and excitement that so many felt the same. Lets hope that no one forgets the energy that these marchers projected, that they, we, can do something, that they weren’t alone. And The similarities in the handmade signs showed that.
