WEEKLY FASHION NEWS RECAP 2/8-2/14 PHARRELL CO OWNS G-STAR RAW, KYLIE'S X SINFUL COLORS, MAYBELLINE'S NEW FACE, AND 'FABOLOUS' TV JERSEYS
Producer, rapper singer, designer, model and creative director Pharrell Williams can add yet another job title to his already extensive resume: he is now the co-owner of the Dutch denim lifestyle brand, G-star Raw. Williams will over see the labels collections, advertising and business strategies, all with an eco friendly focus. This move comes after a two year collaboration between William's Bionic Yarn company and the brands "Raw for Oceans" project that produced clothes from recycled ocean plastic. No stranger to fashion, Skateboard P has previously worked on projects with Reebok, Adidas, Moncler, Louis Vuitton, Uniqlo and Come de Garcon and just last month he announced that he had recently bought back his own streetwear brand, Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream. Where on earth does he find all that time?
Kylie Jenner continues to build her beauty empire by adding a partnership with affordable brand, Sinful Colors Nail Polish to launch King Kylie SinfulShine, a series of three limited edition collections. With a successful hair extension line and the sold out lip kits, this move seemed to be a natural progression since the teen is known for her on point talons as she is for her plush pout... The first launch will consist of 20 jewel tone shades that mimic the look of gel nails and will be $3, only a dollar more than traditional Sinful Colors polishes. Jenner is the first celeb to work with the brand and the inaugural collection will be available sometime in the beginning of March with the second and third available in April and May respectively. I love jewel tones and might snatch up a few if I can get my hands on them...
Congratulations are in order for new Maybelline spokes model Harieth Paul! The Tanzan born, dark skin, natural hair beauty who has walked for Cavalli, DVF, 3.1 Philip and others says she will use her new role to raise diversity awareness in the modelling industry. Paul will be featured in the upcoming spring ads for the cosmetics brand. Yessss!! I love it when beauty brands have darker skinned models in there ads cause too many of us are afraid to wear color and the campaigns are used for mu inspiration everywhere...
Back in the early 2000s, rapper Fabolous was a Mitchell and Ness rockin' throwback jersey wearing king and he had the most exclusive vintage jersey collections out of all the other rappers and fans alike. Fast forward to last year when the Brooklyn native collaborated with urban lifestyle retailer Villa on "WATCH Me Ball", a collection of jerseys worn by classic '90s urban movie characters including Jesus Shuttlesworth, (He Got Game) Willie Beamen, (Any Given Sunday) and Birdie (Above the Rim). Now back for a second collection, launched to coincide with All Star Weekend, the TV- Allstar Jersey line will pay homage to Degrassi High (coincidentally Jimmy Brooks, the character played by the not yet famous Aubrey 'Drake' Graham) and Bel-Air Academy (worn by Will Smith's The Fresh Prince and his cousin Carlton). The limited edition jerseys are exclusive to Villa and retail for $100 each. I don't wear jerseys at all, but I would not mind getting the Above the Rim Tupac- ahem scuse me- Birdie one lol
