ASAP Rocky looking F R E S H…
Decked head-to-toe in Celine and Bottega Veneta on the way to his premiere of Stockholm Syndrome, a documentary he made about getting arrested in Sweden. Definitely need to watch this one.
Cop or drop?
Seeing some interesting (and fantastic) pieces float around the internet right now so I wanted to share here and see if you’d cop or drop. What do we think?
The rope waisted denim jacket — Old Joe
Casablanca Paris’s new seasonal resort-wear (all silk everything). Not available yet.
The painted shirt — Bode NYC
The convertible button pants — TOMBOGO
A box of surprises
If you’re on the hunt for quality athleisure, I’d highly recommend trying Olivers’ Mystery Box campaign.
It’s pretty simple:
1. Pay $150 to get a box of products worth $300 value
2. Pay $275 to get a box of products worth $600 value.
Each box is randomized with an assortment of tees, pants, sweats, and accessories. Ends July 7th.
Ralph Lauren & Team USA have had a nice run; who’s next?
Saw this tweet earlier and it got me thinking…
Ralph’s been at the helm for many years (his original contract was 2008-2020). Given the contract is up, it’s dawned on me how unready we are to let Ralph go and move on to another designer.
Even this list, which has brands I admire (Todd, Sid, RB), I don’t believe we’re ready to pass the torch just yet, even if we must. Though, if anyone could be the next in line, it’s Todd Snyder.
A lost art
There really is an elegance to rocking jewelry while playing sports. But it’s a lost art these days. It used to be a thing in the 70s, 80s, and 90s until the Football Federation banned wearing jewelry outright. It’s a shame because players look way cooler with it on. Shouts guys at L’etiquette Magazine for digging up these photos from the archives.
The retro football jerseys are kinda dope too.
