For NME, Sophie Charara http://uristocrat.com/author/admin/page/1645/. Her top 3 picks are correct, I think, but I’d shift the order a little. Here’s my list, which is a tiny bit objective but mostly really really subjective.
2. The Royal Tenenbaums
3. The Grand Budapest Hotel
4. Fantastic Mr Fox
5. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
6. Isle of Dogs
7. Bottle Rocket
8. Moonrise Kingdom
9. The Darjeeling Limited
Honestly, 4-8 could have gone in any order for me and The Darjeeling Limited is not that far off.
Supreme worked with Tabboo! on two hooded sweatshirts, two T-shirts and a 6-panel hat. The Tabboo! group will be available along with five new fall T-Shirts, including their GZA collab donning the artwork of the rapper’s 1995 album, Liquid Swords.
Tabboo! performed at the drag-punk Pyramid Club in the ’80s, where he designed the club’s signature ads, which then became his signature look, as he also went on to design record covers for Deee-Lite and Book of Love. In addition to the two tees designed, Tabboo!’s collaboration also includes two hooded sweatshirts and a 6-panel hat.
You can find this lineup of exclusive tees at Supreme’s NYC, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, London and Paris flagship locations, as well as online on September 20, while Japan will follow on September 22.

Below you’ll see a closer look at the two T-shirts from the collab — the Group Tee and the Faces Tee — each featuring original artwork by Tabboo!.
Stephen Tashjian was born in 1959 in Worcester, Massachusetts. Prior to moving to New York in the early 1980s, he attended Boston’s Massachusetts College of Art, where he met fellow artists Nan Goldin, Jack Pierson, and David Armstrong, who would go on to become both friends and collaborators.
Tashjian made the move to New York’s East Village in 1982. There, he immersed himself into the underground scene, regularly performing at the drag-punk Pyramid Club alongside other drag legends such as Rupaul and Lady Bunny. The then aspiring artist also participated in the annual Wigstock drag event, and even appeared in 1994’s Wigstock, The Movie.
Tashjian’s ties to the Pyramid Club extended beyond that of performances, however, as he went on to design the venue’s subversive advertisements. Under the name Tabboo!, he also created flyers and record covers, including one of his most well-known pieces, the album artwork for Deee-Lite’s World Clique. His curly lettering ultimately became an iconic image for the band, as well as for early ’90s rave culture.
Since, Tabboo! has covered various city buildings with murals and had his work exhibited in a number of galleries worldwide. To this day, Stephen Tashjian continues to perform in New York, while also showing his paintings at art installations.
One of Tabboo!’s more noteworthy showings came in 2006, curated by Jack Pierson at New York’s Paul Kasmin Gallery. The exhibit featured a selection of pieces from his private collection, in addition to works by Matthew Barney, Nan Goldin, David Armstrong, Jack Pierson, and Mark Morrisroe.
The entire model sees deep royal blue in addition to waxed laces and a shiny satin upper. You’ll find the NBA logo subtly tucked behind the tongue as its heel sees an old-school Nike logo. In addition, the footwear will be joined by matching co-branded bomber jackets, offered in deep royal blue and white color options which hint at another iteration of the Dunk Low silhouette.
The NBA x Nike SB Dunk Low is currently expected to arrive this October to help kick off the 2018-2019 NBA season. Stay tuned for additional information on potential pieces to follow and let us know what other streetwear projects you’d like to see the league contribute on. In related Nike SB, you can take a look at the forthcoming Nike SB Dunk High "Humidity."
Nike has unveiled its latest take on the Air Max 1, this time in a two-tone colorway. Called "atomic teal" it uses a dusty pink upper in leather and mesh panels, while a teal suede is used on the mudguard before the shoe is finished off a classic Air Max 1 midsole and black outsole.
The Nike Air Max 1 "atomic teal" is expected to release in September and will be available from Nike’s web store. The last shoe Nike showcased was the Air Max 97 Ultra, which came in a more winter-ready "red orbit" colorway. Like the Air Max 1, this shoe will be available towards the tail end of September with a price of $160 USD.
Dwyane Wade has decided to return to basketball for one last season. Over the summer, rumors circulated that he’d entertain deals from teams overseas. Yesterday, the three-time NBA Champion debunked those speculations with a heartfelt video for his friends, family and fans to join him for "One Last Dance."
During the announcement, Wade reminisces about growing up playing the game he loves, the important things basketball has taught him over the years and some of the challenges he’s faced along the journey. Including the aforementioned championships, Dwyane Wade also adds an NBA Finals MVP, twelve All-Star appearances, 2009 scoring champion honors, an Olympic gold medal and much more to a hefty resume. Majority of the Flash’s season has been spent with the Miami Heat with small stints under the Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers organizations.
The Air Jordan 5 "Grape" is making a return with a few new adjustments. For this month’s launch, the colorway will pay homage to the classic sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. As an ode to Will Smith‘s style, this edition of the Air Jordan 5 takes on a laceless look. The lace entries have been completely shut while the rest of its design and color scheme remain true to its ’90s release. You’ll find more details on its insole with Air Jordan written in the same font as the tv show and "West Philadelphia" subtly debossed on the tongue.
Highsnobiety aims to provide our readers with the latest updates in the sneaker world. However, we cannot verify the reliability of any unauthorized leaks or rumors unless this information is provided directly by the brands themselves.
Key Features: Translucent upper exposing the lacing structure VaporMax ribbon branding across the heel, reinforcing stitching throughout, along with TPU overlay on the heel, VaporMax tooling in what looks to be draped in a matte finish, Swoosh branding on the sides, with more branding on the tongue.
Compared to the Air VaporMax 2, the purported 2019 variation boasts a similar profile but the upper has been updated with a translucent material instead, as its most striking feature, similar to the popular Nike React Element 87.
Stay tuned for the official availability and unveiling of this silhouette, which might make its debut before the end of 2018.
Supreme has another Wu-Tang collaboration on the way. Through a quick video teaser via its Instagram account, Supreme gives us a preview of a collaborative tee with Wu member GZA. GZA aka The Genius is perhaps one of the Wu-Tang Clan’s most eloquent members, as he’s been known to appear as guest-lecturer for colleges and universities. In this short clip, we see GZA explaining some of his signature spiritual and metaphysical theories, namely how the Liquid Swords is about having a sharp tongue.
Additionally, the tee GZA is wearing is the collaborative product on the horizon for the partnership. It’s emblazoned with the album art of GZA’s debut album Liquid Swords which would become one of the most lauded Wu-Tang member albums of all time. Standouts from the 1995 release include the album title track, "Shadowboxin’" and "4th Chamber."
See the video below and let us know if the tee is a must cop for your Supreme collection. In other Supreme news, the CDG SHIRT collab just dropped, but which CDG collab has been your favorite? Vote here.
Kanye West has been announced as the musical guest for the Season 44 premiere of Saturday Night Live. Scheduled to air September 29th on NBC, it marks the Chicago rapper’s seventh appearance on the sketch variety show since 2005.
The upcoming SNL performance comes in support of Kanye’s own ye solo album and Kids See Ghost collaborative LP, as well as recent singles “XTCY” and his Lil Pump collaboration “I Love It” (here’s hoping he dresses up in that boxy costume). It also follows his production work on albums from G.O.O.D. Music artists Pusha-T, Nas, and Teyana Taylor.
The performance also comes ahead of his highly anticipated appearance at Tyler, the Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw Festival in Los Angeles, where he and Kid Cudi are set to make their official live debut as Kids See Ghosts.
At the 2018 Emmys, Donald Glover’s “Atlanta” was nominated for 16 awards, including Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for the episode “Teddy Perkins.” In the episode, Glover plays the strange Theodore “Teddy” Perkins that Darius (Lakeith Stanfield) meets for a free piano. During the ceremony, the character Teddy Perkins was spotted amongst the audience. It is unclear if Glover, who played Perkins in costume for the episode, is the actor in the audience. Later in the broadcast, Glover appeared without makeup in the same seat as himself. See the images below. Pitchfork has reached out to Glover’s representatives for more information.
Earlier in the night, Glover and “Atlanta” director Hiro Murai lost Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series to “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”’s Amy Sherman-Palladino. Sherman-Palladino also took home Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series over Glover.
J. Cole has announced the music lineup for his inaugural Dreamville Festival. In addition to himself, Cole has revealed that Young Thug, SZA, Big Sean, Nelly, Teyana Taylor, and more will perform. Other artists on the bill include Saba, Rapsody, Davido, YBN Cordae, and more. Check out a poster for the one-day event below. Dreamville Festival goes down September 15 at the Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, North Carolina.
J. Cole’s most recent album, KOD, was issued in April. Earlier this month, he shared a new freestyle, rapping over Nas and the Bravehearts’ “Oochie Wally.”
Eminem is full of surprises on this Friday release day. With no warning, Slim Shady crashes with his surprise album, Kamikaze.
Executive produced by himself along with Dr. Dre, this marks Marshall’s 10th studio album and his second release this year (Revival). Clocking in at 13 tracks, the project features collaborations from Royce 5’9″, Joyner Lucas, and two from Jessie Reyez.
When Serena Williams stepped into Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing Meadows, Queens yesterday for the start of her first US Open since giving birth, she was dressed head to toe in her OFF WHITE x Nike “Queen” collection. Wearing a bomber jacket and, the outfit she’d play in, a black and brown dress tulle shirt designed by Virgil Abloh, Williams was both powerful and full of grace following a new rule that prohibited the “catsuit” she’d worn in the past.
On her feet was the OFF WHITE x NikeCourt Flare 2 PE, a high arching performance model made exclusively for Williams’ forceful yet elegant movements. But it was her lifestyle shoe that made all the noise when Serena took the court last night, where she easily beat Magda Linette (6-4, 6-0) in straight sets during the opening round of the 50th annual US Open.
The OFF WHITE x Nike Air Max 97 “Queen” released on Nike SNKRS just before Serena’s first serve. As expected, the shoe quickly sold through as many shoes with Abloh’s name and subsequent design often tend to.
There is still the release of the OFF WHITE x Nike Blazer “Queen” and the aforementioned NikeCourt Flare 2 PE to look forward to. Nike has not yet released details on those shoes.
Longtime partners Undercover and Nike have been teasing their collaboration for quite some time now. Originally debuted during the Paris Fashion Week, the Undercover x Nike React Element 87s have been leaked in various colorways in the time since.
With the Fall/Winter official debut coming in the near future, Jian DeLeon from Highsnobiety shared three new colorways of the Undercover x Nike React Element 87 collab. The three color options shared range from one in vibrant yellow to two pairs with fall vibes.
No word on when the new Undercover x Nike React Element 87 will release, but stay tuned for the official info.
Serena Williams’ 23 Grand Slam titles, six won in New York, is evidence of what is possible when you dare to dream big.
Today, as Serena Williams steps on the court in Flushing, Nike releases its latest Just Do It film, Voice of Belief. By blending archival and match footage with a voiceover by Serena’s father and first coach, Richard Williams, the spot highlights Serena’s dream-come-true of winning the major.
The film also serves as a key touch point in the 30th anniversary celebration of Nike’s famed call to action. In 1988, Nike inspired a revolution in sport participation and the drive to chase one’s crazy dreams. That inspiration came from a series of advertisements tagged with three simple words: Just Do It.
Since then, Just Do It has stood as a rally cry that inspires self-belief and has helped athletes from around the become their best by leveraging the power of sport.
Voice of Belief, created by Nike and Portland-based creative agency Wieden + Kennedy, will air on ESPN during the first two rounds of the tournament.
The six winners of the Nike: On Air contest – Gabrielle (New York City), Jasmine (London), Lou (Paris), Gwang (Seoul), Cash (Shanghai), and Yuta (Tokyo) – recently flew to Nike World Headquarters to take the next step in their sneaker design journey. At Nike WHQ, each winner had the chance to refine their shoes with a team of footwear designers, materials and color designers, and developers who collectively pored over the designs in individual teams. But before all of that, the moment of truth was revealed in a surprise first-look at their samples.
Striving, training, fighting for every centimeter—it’s what emergent 100-meter specialist Reece Prescod does every day as he prepares for the 2018 European Athletics Championships, where Nike is the official partner. The 22-year-old already holds the British 100m title, and is looking to break 10 seconds in this month’s championship race in Berlin.
In this one-minute video, director Ian Derry relates Prescod’s personal quest for success through candid insights and shots of the Nike athlete sprinting through iconic Berlin locations such as the Messendam subway. “My vision was to try and articulate what it takes to become faster; the tiny margins of potentially training a whole lifetime to gain just a few centimeters,” says Derry, who produced this video and two others on 200-meter World Champion Dafne Schippers and 1500m runner Konstanze Klosterhalfen for a series called Portraits of Speed. “Capturing a visual portrait of their physicality to bring to life their voice and story was a real privilege.”
The 2018 European Athletics Championships begins August 6. Watch the other Portraits of Speed here and here.
Not long ago, Harry Kane was relegated to reserve play. This came after being dropped from his first club, when he was just nine years old, and spending years in loan limbo. Doubt over the future has crippled many young players, but for Kane, it became a spark to prove all the ratings wrong.
Today, his goal-scoring record is among Europe’s best and his England team is on to its next challenge.

History comes naturally to French footballer Kylian Mbappe. The forward is the youngest-ever to score a goal for AS Monaco, the youngest-ever scorer in a European club semi-final, and the youngest to be nominated for football’s greatest individual prize, among other honors. Today, the 19-year-old racked up another accolade as the youngest French goalscorer in World Cup history. But age is only a number for Mbappe, as he describes in the Nike Football film, “Too Young”
“On your back, there’s a number, not your age” says Mbappe as he’s surrounded by the French flag and the chants of his home nation. “Either the player can play or he can’t.”
Coming off the heels of back-to-back World Cup victories for the French team, Mbappe is once again primed to defy his age — and establish his legacy.

“This is Naija: A Nigerian Football Story” captures the pulse of the country’s unbridled, optimistic and confident approach to football. The documentary is directed by filmmaker Andrew Dosunmu, who also produced the 2006 feature “The African Game.”
Wherever you travel in Nigeria — a diverse country with more than 500 different ethnic groups — football serves as a universal language, the connective tissue that unifies the land and drives the spirit, belief and energy of the nation. Football provides a rhythm for daily life in the streets, the clubs, the markets and on the pitch, from the energy and chaos of Lagos to the wooded savannas of Abeokuta.
The film, which includes interviews with Segun Odegbami (a star of the 1980 Nigerian Africa Cup team) as well as current players Odion Ighalo and Wilfred Ndidi, shares how the Super Eagles’ mission to bring Naija to the world takes shape.
With cameos from national team athletes Philippe Coutinho, Marquinhos, Willian and Thiago Silva, the legendary Ronaldo, up-and-coming players Vinicius Júnior, David Neres, Lucas Paquetá and Paulinho as well as amateur players, this film depicts Brasilian football through its unique balance of talent, commitment and joy.
The term “Brasileiragem” (which, in Portuguese, is a combo of “Brasil” and “ball playing style”) was coined to define this, which manifests in everything from the country’s street art to the athletes’ unique confidence and style.
Focused on starring Russian national team forward Fedor Smolov, “Never Ask” champions a Just Do It attitude. After being cut from his academy team and going scoreless for two years of league play, Smolov didn’t give up. Instead, he dug deep to realize his potential — rising from nearly forgotten squad member to star player.

Ralph Lauren is diving into the archives to revitalize its 1990s Polo sportswear, Hi Tech, inspired by the most technical Polo Sport styles from that decade. Hi Tech was a patch originally used on Polo Sport pieces from 1992 to 1994 to signify special technical construction.
For Fall 2018, vintage RL silhouettes have been reimagined into something new, featuring bright colors and bold graphics. The assortment includes performance-driven cargo pants, popovers, rugby shirts, sweatshirts with graphics in block capitals, and surplus-inspired pieces. Details and fits have been updated, while references to the original Hi Tech collection are prevalent throughout.

LeBron James is a Laker, now and likely forever. Also of much certainty is his long-term future with the Swoosh and the continuation of his signature line. Today, that certainty sees another step on the timeline.
The Nike LeBron 16 is coming this fall as expected. Said to have a release date of September 20th, LeBron just debuted what looks like the launch colorway today.
Captured by our friend Cassy Athena, the LeBron 16 packs similar tooling to that of the LeBron 15 in regards to Max Air/Zoom Air combo cushioning and BattleKnit construction. The cut is slightly lower on the 16 with the overall stance more sharp and angular than high and swooping.
Look for LeBron’s new shoe to debut at retail next month.
Teaming up for the scariest collaboration since Michael Jackson and Stephen King made Ghosts, the Off-White x Nike Blazer “Spooky Pack” finds Virgil Abloh getting gory with Nike. Okay, maybe not gory but you get the picture.
Shot by Eddie Lee for Hypebeast, this detailed look at both Black and Sail SKUs is perhaps the best preview we’ve gotten yet. Worn on the regular by Bloody Osiris and hinting at Halloween inspiration, rumors suggest a mid-September launch date with public preview pulling towards such positioning.
Deconstructed and over branded, preview the Off-White x Nike Blazer “Spooky Pack” at your own risk below.
