Two years in the making Mayweather and Plein finally set to debut fashion collaboration. First look of the threads will be seen as Floyd makes his entrance into the ring of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend for his long anticipated match vs Conor McGregor. In addition to Floyd, his money team will be sporting pieces from the line as well.
The Plein x Mayweather partnership is the perfect union. The lifestyle and aesthetic of Plein’s line is bold, flashy and in your face, the epitome of Mayweather.
The collection will be available at the flagship store as well as online.
Rihanna Navy Assembleeee ! The bad gal herself along in her partnership with Stance, have launched another sock collection called “Iconic Looks”.
The collection is divided into two box sets Red Carpet Show and Music Video. Inspired by her most unforgettable outfits from the yellow Guo Pei gown, worn at the 2015 Met Gala and her Adam Selman Swarovski crystal dress from the 2014 CFDA Awards. The set includes looks from music videos Work and Pour It Up as well. Both are Rihanna’s “most incredible and uncommonly cool outfits from her music videos,” says Stance.
Virgil Abloh dropped his industrial belt in 2 color ways, yellow and white, just about a year ago. After being the hot accessory item of Summer 16 popping up in just about every streetwear photo you may have stumbled upon on IG or Tumblr, the OFF-WHITE designer adds more variety to his line this year with adding more colors to the industrial belt. The belts range from $182-$200
#freethenipple is back. Supermodels Natasha Poly, Doutzen Kroes, and Isabeli Fontana sashay down a desert road in sheer tops, metallics and billowy caped pieces . “My Balmain army has shed its armor”, says Rousting.
Music was said to be one of the influences for the line this season. “For me and my generation, music is simply inseparable from fashion. Those who know Balmain will recall that it has played a key part in the house’s previous campaigns—whether the focus was placed on today‘s artists themselves or on a shared creative collaboration with them. Here, the impressive towering speakers that line the mysterious pathway make very clear that ours is a journey that is accompanied with a powerfully invigorating soundtrack, blasting out at top volume, at every step of the way.”
While still bringing the bold prints and intricate detailing, it’s not the “typical armor” we’re use to seeing but it works!
It’s never too early to think about Summer 17, with it being 6 months away and all. You’ve got enough time to get those bodies right, or more than likely “you are already your best you.”
GabiFresh has teamed up with Swimsuits for All for the 5th time and this collab is all about embracing the body you have now! Normally people tend to workout all Winter to get a Summer bod but the motto here is “New Year, same you.”
With an empowering campaign, this collection consists of 3 one pieces, 4 bikinis and 4 cover ups ranging in sizes 12-24 and cups from D, DD, E, F and H. Check out these photos from the shoot below..amazing! Shop the collection here.
So as most of you have figured out by today and others months ago, Lilly Pulitzer has collabed with Target. For those of you who don’t know about the brand just think of preppy, vibrant, classy resort wear. Just a little history lesson for you, Lilly lived in Palm Springs and opened an orange juice stand In her 20s. Cutting, peeling and juicing oranges can be messy, so she started to design printed shift dresses to hide the juice stains (legend has it) and thus the brand was born. (Neat huh?)
For some the brand collaborating with Target is a hit, for others..eh not so much. The naysayers are completely against it saying that Lilly is turning over in her grave. Hateful tweets have swarmed the Twitter world and it is NOT pretty. From reading all the tweets you can come to the conclusion that her customers (pre collab), are worried it will “cheapen” the brand, and lower price points mean that “basics” have access to the line now. Me personally, I do not own a single garment from Lilly Pulitzer because it’s just not in my price point. People in my target market or demographical region aren’t very familiar with the brand at all. I’m excited to see the line come to Target! Over 200 pieces from apparel to home decor, will range from $2 to $150. Plus with the weather breaking, it’s here just in time to spruce up your closet and your home for the Spring and Summer months to come.
I love when popular, well known, brand names extend their lines, it’s always a success. Alexander Wang with H&M, Prabal Gurung with MAC, and even Barbie with Forever 21. Come on now, you know you had to do a double take when you saw the Barbie tank top that said “I woke up like this” with her two friends next to her looking fierce. Ha! But my point is that brand extensions aren’t always a bad thing, some designers just want to dabble in a different target market sometimes to see how well it’ll do. Yes it’s very risky because if it all goes left it can ruin or dilute the image of the company. However majority of the time it’s a hit, resulting in and the website crashing, then everything is sold out. So what does that tell you?
I’m all for Lilly Pulitzer x Target and you should be too. Visit Refinery29.com for more deets on the tweets.
