Jordan Brand Spring 2015 Editorial by HYPEBEAST

2015 marks the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan, a festive occasion for a brand that’s transcended sport, fashion and culture for the past three decades. Building off a strong end of the year, which introduced us to a remastered shoe program, Jordan Brand makes significant strides in its apparel collection for Spring, placing an emphasis on fit, quality and performance, much like we’re used to seeing in footwear. Designed for appeal both on and off the hardwood, each of these three capsules find inspiration in ’flight’, all in a unique way that pays homage to the Jumpman. Crafted for the modern man, equally fueled by fashion and sport, we get a look into the second collection by Russell Westbrook for Barney’s, a luxurious throwback to the past by Chicago’s Don C, and a celebration of NBA All-Star Weekend with a tip of the hat to iconic Jordan graphics of the past. Blessed with the opportunity to put our own spin on these future classics, we present a stylized editorial by HYPEBEAST, with a more thorough breakdown of each collection offered below:
Russell Westbrook Jordan Barney’s Collection
Leading the charge as one of the most stylish sportsmen, Russell Westbrook announces his second collaboration with world-class retailer Barney’s New York. The collection includes a range of technical and eccentric pieces that display Russell’s affinity for all things bold and unexpected. A mix of high-fashion and on-court basketball silhouettes, the line perfectly represents the point guard’s personal style with fashion-forward pieces inspired by flight. Select items from the collection release on February 1, 2015, with further designs following on March 1, 2015 and exclusive footwear that includes the Jordan Shine dropping March 4, 2015. All items will be sold exclusively through Barneys.
Don C Pinnacle Bomber Jacket and Air Jordan II
Inspired by an archived AJ II Wings Crew bomber, Jordan Brand teams up with Don C in creating an exclusive elevated jacket featuring luxurious sateen and a quilted interior lining. Leather Wing appliqués on the sleeves link back to the iconic AJ II, along with MJ’s signature embroidered on the back. A Don C sign off on the interior back label and a suede patch with silicone AJ Wings logo on the left chest round out a story filled with premium aesthetics. Look for the Don C Air Jordan II to release on January 31, 2015, with the jacket now available through select accounts.
ASW Pinnacle Apparel
Stimulated by one of the most iconic Michael Jordan images of all time and the 30th Anniversary of the Air Jordan, the pinnacle apparel assortment utilizes bold graphics and a cleansing white palette to showcase Jordan’s legacy and ever evolving brand. Full bleed graphics on the tee and long sleeve top add dimension to the assortment alongside soft fleece material and tapered silhouettes.

Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig Interviews Karen O for GQ

Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig Interviews Karen O for GQ

Yeah Yeah Yeahs‘ Karen O and Vampire Weekend‘s Ezra Koenig have collaborated in the past—the two performed Karen’s "Moon Song" from Her at the Oscars together. Now, GQ has shared a conversation between the two New York rock’n’roll luminaries. Read the whole thing here.

Most of their discussion reveals Karen’s perception of technology and social media, saying that she’s inactive on Twitter, checks Instagram more regularly, and is generally skeptical of self-promotion. "As an artist, the work part is what it’s all about, really," she said. "Any perks you get from the success, that’s an added bonus." 

It’s also revealed that she learned about "Moon Song"’s Grammy nomination via a text from Koenig. She also learned about D’Angelo’s return from Koenig. (Black Messiah was released the day the two conducted the interview.)

Karen also reveals that, inspired by The Playboy Interviews With John Lennon and Yoko Ono, she’s considered taking a break from music:

He’d disappeared from the public for about five years and basically became a househusband raising Sean. He talks about how it was the hardest thing he’s ever done, walking away from that conversation that we’re talking about. He needed constant reinforcement from Yoko against that nagging insecurity of "Who am I—what am I?" But that five years really renewed his spirit for music, for art, for life. So that made me scratch my head like, "Hmm, what would it be like to do that?"

New York Is Considering Letting You Pay For The Subway With Your Smartphone

Business Man Walking in Front of Subway

New York City’s Metro Transit Authority (MTA) is planning to replace its MetroCard payment system with a new one that includes contactless payments, according to minutes from a capital program oversight committee meeting on Tuesday.

The minutes outline a system that would extend beyond the MTA to other New York transit agencies.

The agency has pegged the total cost of replacing the MetroCard with contactless payments at $450 million.

The plan would bring contactless payments to buses first, followed by subways, and would include vending machines by 2022.

An MTA spokesperson told Business Insider that a request for proposal (RFP) for a contactless payment system would be made public sometime in February or March.

The MTA doesn’t point to a particular technology in its plans, but whatever it decides on will almost certainly have a mobile component and a dedicated app.

The transit agency has envisioned a system where "customers pay fares by tapping a contactless bankcard, smartphone, or an MTA-issued smartcard against an electronic reader," according to the minutes.

Part of the reason the MTA’s plans remain vague has to do with timing. The organization plans to let companies bid on the project until mid-2016. Assuming the MTA sticks to its current plans, the new system won’t be ready for New Yorkers until early 2020. By 2022, New York subways may not accept MetroCards.

It’s too early to tell which companies will bid on the MTA’s project, but it’s possible the transit agency could decide to adopt the near-field communication (NFC) platform that Apple and Google use for their mobile wallets.

Whether NFC catches on with consumers remains to be seen. A lot can happen in five years and there’s no reason to think a company couldn’t come up with a new, amazingly convenient platform by 2020.

Next for the MTA is a vendor forum in February, where officials could meet with potential vendors to discuss the project.
