Yes, Please: Gucci and The North Face Announce Collaboration

Published

on

Fashion right now is an old-timey country hoedown: everyone’s partnering up and two-stepping their way to collaborative designs. Last week, the biggest news in the fashion world was that Supreme was releasing a range of clothes made with legendary Japanese designer Yohji Yamamato. Yesterday, Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons debuted their first Prada collection as a compromising couple. Not to be outdone, on Thursday, Gucci announced an upcoming line of gear with stalwart outdoors brand The North Face.

Gucci first announced the collaboration on TikTok—where fashion now happens, apparently—with a trio of short videos featuring placid nature scenes replete with birds twittering, sweeping mountain views, and a flag flapping in the wind that features a smashed-together logo. There are no clothes yet, or hints as to what’s to come, but seeing those two names together is enough to get excited about. “We can only confirm that Gucci and the North Face will be bringing a collection to life in the coming months that celebrates the rich heritage of both brands!” a representative from Gucci said over email.

While Gucci’s Alessandro Michele has collaborated with artists like GucciGhost or fellow designers like Dapper Dan during his tenure as the Italian house’s head cheese, this is his first time partnering with a brand. This will be old hat for The North Face, though. In this year alone, the brand has worked with MM6 Maison Margiela, Supreme, Junya Watanabe, and Brain Dead.

In today’s fashion wilderness, campers, hikers, survivalists, white-water challengers, arctic explorers, and trekkers no longer have to choose between high performance and high fashion. Between The North Face’s rash of collaborations and its fashion-minded Black Series, Moncler’s Genius program that pairs big-name designers with the brand’s puffy coats, and Loewe’s line of outside-kid gear Eye/LOEWE/Nature, the outdoors has taken center stage in fashion. Gucci’s upcoming collaboration is just further confirmation that gorpcore’s made it to the peak and gone high fashion.

Comme des Garcons x Nike Air Force 1 Mid Release Date F/W 2020

Published

on

By

Japanese label Comme des Garçons and Nike have another collaboration in the works, with images from Paris Fashion Week offering a first look at a new CDG x Air Force 1 Mid.

Spotted on the runway of CDG’s Fall/Winter Women’s Show over the weekend, the shoe features a deconstructed white leather upper, with stitched Swoosh branding along the quarters and CDG embroidery on the ankle straps. It also appears to be highly susceptible to creasing—not much different from any Air Force 1.

There is no word on pricing or when the pair may release, but keep it locked to Sole Collector as news develops.

UPDATE (10/19): After debuting at Comme des Garcons’ Fall/Winter runway show in March, the release info for the CDG x Nike Air Force 1 Mid collabs has been announced. Dover Street Market has confirmed that the two monochromatic black and white makeups are releasing on its website this Friday for $270 each.

Jennifer Lopez’s new shag hairstyle is actually inspirational

Published

on

By

If there’s one thing you can depend on Jennifer Lopez for (besides her Herculean ability to sing and dance at the same time / Benjamin Button-esque way of ageing backwards / Oscar-worthy acting skills), it’s her ability to shake it up, hair-wise.

2020 has already been a wild ride when it comes to Jlo’s strands. We’ve seen everything from a 70s fringe to Rapunzel hair extensions, badass striped highlights to chunky highlights, space buns (a personal favourite, I won’t lie) to the single best messy beach bun I’ve ever had the honour of digitally witnessing. And let’s not forget the time she took hair inspo from a Barbie doll (obsessed).

But with the help of celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton, she’s come through with yet another blazer of a look – this time, seeming to take inspiration from the wave of shags and mullets we’ve seen this year (hello, Miley, Maisie, Cara, Billie and Rihanna, to mention a few…)

Obviously, Jlo’s a classic gal, so she’s gone for something slightly more low-key than a full-on mullet. But, that said, it’s still absolutely epic, with her natural texture and curls worked into a halo of shorter layers up top, and longer spirals in the lower sections of her hair.

Can we talk about how this look also somehow spans decades, taking all the best parts of hairstyles through the 70s, 80s and 90s, bringing them into a totally modern, volumised mane?

And let’s not even get into how this woman is able to suit literally every hairstyle under the sun – I could be here all day.

If you’re keen to recreate using your own curly layers, ditch the hairbrush and scrunch-dry a curl-hold serum into damp hair, upside-down using a diffuser extension on a cool heat.

And there you have it – an absolutely enviable shag in 15 minutes, tops.

Count me in.
