NBA City Edition Uniforms 2018-19


In 1984, a talented musician out of Minneapolis released an album and a loosely autobiographical film that showcased his hometown’s full creative powers. The late Prince Rogers Nelson, better known to the world by his first name, would leave a powerful mark on music history. This year, his would-be 60th birthday, serves as the inspiration behind Minnesota’s “Purple Rain” City Edition uniforms.

The jersey has recognizable details from outfits that Prince wore in his music videos. On the right shoulder, a metallic graphic is reminiscent of the studs on Prince’s jacket. The team script mirrors the lettering on the original Purple Rain album cover. White accents throughout the jersey nod to his ruffled blouses. Inside the shorts’ left vent, a paisley graphic honors Paisley Park Records, Prince’s first label.

Nike Swoosh Cleat (Odell Beckham Jr. Special Edition)


October 18, 2018 – In the summer of 2017, Tyler, the Creator began reinterpreting the Converse One Star with a flower motif that now defines his signature GOLF le FLEUR* collection. Now, and for the first time, he expands that vision to a new silhouette — the Chuck 70 — with fresh fabrics. Designed with a burlap and vintage parchment canvas upper and asymmetrical GOLF le FLEUR* print, Tyler offers a distinct, creative take on the classic Chuck 70. In the new collection, the burlap upper is also added to the signature GOLF le FLEUR* One Star.


This aesthetic also carries over to the capsule’s accompanying apparel, an open-weave fabric anorak in Curry and Natural.


Converse and Tyler, the Creator’s GOLF le FLEUR* collection will release in an exclusive presale partnership with Foot Locker at Camp Flog Gnaw November 10, and launch at select retailers globally on November 15.

Nike Will Design “New And Unexpected” LeBron Sneaker Themes For Space Jam 2



words // Nick DePaula: 

When the forever-anticipated Space Jam 2 sequel was officially confirmed last month, there was a collective sigh of relief that the movie would finally be on the way.

“That’s what I thought — finally!” laughs Jason Petrie, LeBron’s longtime Nike designer, during an in-depth conversation on the latest edition of the Nice Kicks Podcast.

While Petrie, like most of us, was a huge fan of the original Michael Jordan-led Space Jam film, the more pressing matter is that he and his fellow Nike designers and graphic designers will now be getting to work on mapping out a series of sneakers and gear to coincide with the upcoming movie.

“Now, we have a stake in the ground, where we can stop just talking about it,” he continues. “I know that’s been something that’s been in the works for awhile. We [told LeBron], ‘Just let us know when it’s time to start.’ We’re gonna go crazy with that for sure.”

While Mike’s “Space Jam” Jordan XIs were just a movie prop at the time of the 1996 film’s debut, and didn’t officially release until 2001, we could expect to see LeBron’s sneakers come to life in real time alongside the movie.

“Discussions have already started about what that means for us — we don’t know yet,” Petrie jokes. “But it’s going to be important. They’re just announcing the movie, so we don’t know if they know yet. I’m hoping to follow along that journey, and be able to provide whatever that story becomes. What it won’t be, is what’s already been told.”

For more on the new LeBron 16, the move to LA and the excitement around Space Jam 2, listen along as Jason Petrie discusses all things LeBron.

Pusha-T Wants Kanye West to Produce Every Track on ‘DAYTONA’ Follow-up


Pusha-T has told Complex that he is once again looking to Kanye West for production of his forthcoming fourth album. The rapper’s third album, Daytona, dropped earlier this year, but as Pusha explains, he is already planning his next move, and he’s hoping that once again Kanye West will be producing every track.

“I’m going to see how he wants to finish this up” the rapper explained. “If not, I always got a heavy hitter list in my back pocket.”

West produced every single track on DAYTONA, and the two have a longstanding partnership — Pusha-T is currently the President of West’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint.

In other music news, 6ix9ine has avoided a prison term, and has been sentenced to probation instead.

Supreme x John Woo Has Nothing to Do With New York and That’s OK


When it was announced that Supreme was releasing a collaboration with legendary Chinese director, John Woo, its decision to use his 1989 film, The Killer, seemed like a logical choice given the brand’s track record of turning to cinema for inspiration over the years.

As a result of Supreme’s fascination with Hollywood, we’ve gotten notable collaborations with people like Woody Allen and Charle Chaplin, brands like Disney, and films like The Wizard of Oz, Taxi Driver, E.T., Goodfellas, Kids, and Scarface.

Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas and Brian De Palma’s Scarface are particularly important when unpacking why Supreme may have been interested in paying homage to Woo’s Hong Kong-set epic.

United underneath the “gangster” genre, both films shined a light on the criminal underbelly in a way that was new to audiences. Despite the worlds being populated by morally bankrupt people like Henry, Tommy, and Jimmy in Goodfellas and Tony, Manolo, Frank, and Sosa in Scarface, the lines were blurred between good and evil. No longer were the heroes free of sin. Similarly, the so-called “bad guys” had redeemable human traits.

Whereas the mystique of La Cosa Nostra has been embedded in American culture since the days of Capone, Lansky, Siegel, and Gotti, John Woo’s The Killer gave an international spin to a gangster’s exploits which bucked tired clichés about Asian culture—where men were often portrayed as being docile—and if they had any fighting spirit, it was only shown through martial arts. Woo’s “bullet ballet” films blended both worlds in a new way, fusing the hard-boiled realism of Scorsese’s gangland epics with the artful gymnastics of kung fu cinema.

Supreme/The Killer. 10/25/2018

A post shared by Supreme (@supremenewyork) on

In The Killer, Chow Yun-Fat’s Ah Jong is portrayed as a suave, cool, and calculated leading man during an era when American audiences were witnessing Asian representation in the form of cheap, racist jokes in Gung Ho and as Chinese mystics in Big Trouble in Little China. In turn, Ah Jong’s characterization afforded actual complexity.

Woo tells the audience: “He looks determined without being ruthless. There’s something heroic about him. He doesn’t look like a killer. He comes across so calm… acts like he has a dream… eyes full of passion.” This bit was actually sampled by RZA on Raekwon’s “Incarcerated Scarfaces,” and in a fitting closing of a circle, RZA is the one who interviews Woo about this collab for Supreme.

Supreme/The Killer. John Woo & RZA. 10/25/2018

A post shared by Supreme (@supremenewyork) on

The Killer achieved something in Asian cinema that Scarface had attained previously, and Goodfellas would later solidify; it’s more fun to root for the bad guy if he feels like a real person. These truths were unpacked through Tony Montana’s greed, Henry Hill’s friendships, and Ah Jong’s love for Jennie.

“When I made The Killer, it was a tribute to all those great gangster films I had admired,” Woo tells RZA. “It’s about a man with a great heart, but also [a hitman]. He’s my kind of hero.”

Thematically, The Killer, Goodfellas, and Scarface are meditations on characters following codes in worlds that are seemingly absent of rules. Scorsese constantly reminds us, “never rat on your friends, and always keep your mouth shut,” De Palma tells us, “The only thing I got in this world is my balls and my word and I don’t break ’em for nobody,” and Woo illustrates, “very few people still believe in the old ways.”

Supreme has earned a reputation in the industry of playing by their own rules. They’re notoriously media adverse, seek out unlikely partnerships, and leave “supply and demand” to resellers. As a result, they’re derided by some for being prickly and elusive, while simultaneously applauded by others for creating a brand that everyone wants to work with.

The brand was created in 1994 during a time when the world was becoming more accustomed to watching morally questionable characters on screen.

Supreme founder, James Jebbia, describes the early days of the brand in a New York Times interview, saying: “People would buy stuff and get robbed afterward,” and further illustrated a cultivated aesthetic where its consumers were perceived one way (“scruffy” in Jebbia’s own words), but actually much more refined upon closer examination. Essentially, Supreme perceives both itself and their consumers as complex entities who are often typecast.

In describing the collaboration, RZA states, “We got a piece of art [The Killer] — it will be 30 years old — and it’s still as good as something that came out yesterday.”

Supreme’s intentions have never been to be the biggest or most relevant brand in the world. Rather, it sees the strength in playing a calculated long game which ages as gracefully as the film’s they’ve honored in the past.

Far from perfect and lauded for its character flaws, Supreme and The Killer set a new precedent for synergy amongst collaborators.

Now take a full look at the Supreme x John Woo collaboration.

Nike Kyrie 4 Channels its Inner SB with “Day of the Dead” Colorway

Nike SB Dunk Low‘s "Day of the Dead" colorway will soon adorn the beloved Kyrie 4 silhouette thanks to Nike Basketball. There’s no question that Kyrie Irving is a quiet sneakerhead with previous colorways such as the "Cereal" pack alongside a General Mills collaboration that resulted in three cereal-inspired editions (Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and Kix) as well as the Nike SB-influenced "Green Lobster" version of the basketball shoe. Today, Irving digs into the SB crates once more with a special "Day of the Dead" colorway. Bright orange is joined by black and purple – similar to the 2006 release – along with skeleton graphics spread throughout the toe area, heel and insoles. The design also features a semi-translucent outsole sporting a black to orange transition along with mismatched logos on the tongue.

The Nike Kyrie 4 "Day of the Dead" will retail for $120 USD and will launch overseas on October 30 with a global launch to follow on November 1 at select Nike Basketball retailers and Nike.com. The model was recently wrapped in a Halloween theme.

OFF-WHITE, Nike & YEEZY Are Among the World’s Hottest Brands


Global fashion search platform Lyst has published its list of the world’s hottest fashion brands in Q3 of 2018. Lyst’s findings stem from analyzing shopping behaviour and engagement statistics over a three month period. For the first time, Lyst is now including social media metrics into its results, such as “the 265k social mentions surrounding the much-memed launch of the Adidas Yeezy 350V2 “Butter” sneakers”. The Q3 report notes that “during a long, warm Summer, the labels that got people talking (and shopping) were boosted by moments of internet-melting virality.”

Virgil Abloh’s OFF-WHITE was crowned the number 1 “hottest brand” of Q3. As Lyst notes, the sheer volume of production from Abloh, i.e. “dressing Serena Williams for the US Open, releasing the second ‘For All’ capsule, the Mykonos inspired swim line, the Ikea rug pop-up, plus projects with retailers SSENSE, Selfridges and TheDoubleF, ahead of a thrilling athletics-inspired SS19 show in Paris” all contributed to this prime ranking.

The index also notes that the World Cup was a big influence, reporting that “searches for the Nike 2018 England jersey spiked 300% in the week leading up to the semi-finals, selling out across all sizes, across multiple online retailers. While the Nigerian, Belgian and Croatian shirts all excited fans and media, England’s was the world’s most wanted replica kit of the tournament in terms of searches, sales and social combined.”

The report also includes interesting industry facts and figures. For example, the amount of Nike’s social media mentions in the 24 hours following the release of the new Just Do It campaign reached 10 million, while the spike in searches following a global 100-person influencer post with the Dior saddle bag was recorded at 957%.

Palace Announces Polo Ralph Lauren Collaboration


London skateboard staple Palace is never one to rest on its laurels. Having just dropped its Winter 2018 collection and unveiled a collaboration with Oakley, Palace will be collaborating with Polo Ralph Lauren in the near future.

Three mysterious billboards have popped up in Tokyo, featuring a navy blue background with both the Palace and the Polo Ralph Lauren logo in white.

Palace is known for its guerrilla marketing strategies, so it’s not unlike the brand to announce a collaboration in such a way. The partnership would mark another seismic moment for the brand, and comes just months after it teamed up with adidas for a groundbreaking collaboration at Wimbledon.

Take a look at the billboards above and leave your thoughts on this collaboration below.
