Nike Air Max Verona Summer Colorways Release

Published

By

Following the release of Nike‘s women’s-exclusive Air Max Verona silhouette earlier this year, the Swoosh is releasing three new colorways of the shoe just in time for #AirMaxMonday. Arriving in a handful of seasonal hues, including a blush pink as well as crisp white designs, the shoe is perfect for everyday wear.

Nike and HYPEBAE teamed up with a handful of creatives tasking them with styling the Air Max Verona, translating the chic silhouette into their own personal styles. “I think style is definitely very subjective to the individual! To me it is shown through your confidence, what makes you feel at your best and most comfortable in your skin,” said Jameela Elfaki when asked about her definition of style.

If you’re looking to get your own pair of Nike’s Air Max Verona sneaker, the shoes are now available over at Nike’s website.

Met Gala 2020 ticket holders urged to make donations


Met Gala 2020 ticket holders urged to make donations &nbsp

Journalist Anna Wintour’s team at Vogue has been reaching out to ticket holders to the cancelled Met Gala and urging guests to make donations rather than get refunds.

According to Page Six, The Metropolitan Museum of Art this week called off the gala, where guests traditionally range from Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Kim Kardashian to Jeff Bezos. The extravaganza raises money for the Met’s Costume Institute.

As per the sources, this gala season, most cancelled events are asking guests not to get their money back, but to make the money laid out for tickets donations instead.

But unlike other gala events, prices at the Met Gala — one of the world’s toughest tickets — go for up to USD 300,000 a table or USD 30,000 for a single ticket. Also, unlike other stuffed shirt charity galas, for which some donors might be happy to part with the ticket prices in exchange for not having to show up to another staid high-society black-tie dinner, the Met Gala is about the party.

While Vogue had no comment, as per a source familiar with the museum’s programs told Page Six: “As the global arts and culture community, and the Met, suffer huge losses as a result of the pandemic, and as the Met Gala is the Costume Institute’s primary source of annual funding, they hope guests will consider generously turning their tickets to this fundraiser into a donation or transfer tickets toward next year’s gala. If that is not possible, the money will, of course, be refunded.”

The gala raised a reported USD 15 million in last year. This year’s Costume Institute exhibition (which would have been the theme for the party) is called, ‘About Time: Fashion and Duration.’ The exhibition is still scheduled to open on October 29.

Where To Cop Takashi Murakami Pieces Right Now

Published

on

By

Takashi Murakami’s collaborations span projects with Louis Vuitton, Supreme, Britney Spears, COMME des GARÇONS, and most recently, a T-shirt to help save the bees and a new merch capsule for Billie Eilish with Uniqlo UT.

Murakami’s prolific career began in 1989 where his early oeuvre satirized an over-reliance on Western influences in contemporary Japanese art.

In 1998, he unveiled one of his most famous – and polarizing – pieces “My Lonesome Cowboy” an 8-foot manga figure entrapped in a whirlwind of his own semen, which sold at Christie’s for 15.2 million – his most highly-valued work to date.

Murakami has since coined the term “superflat” to describe his pantheon of characters, his predilection for conflating high and low aesthetics, as well as the wider postmodern art movement in Japan as a whole.

We’ve scoured trusted resale sites to help you track down the Murakami grail you had in mind.
