Nicki Minaj × Vogue Arabia

Nicki Minaj Covers September Issue of Vogue Arabia.

A fully-fledged member of rap’s fashion royalty, Nicki Minaj, who has more than 90 million followers on Instagram, has returned following a hiatus of nearly four years to drop her fourth album, Queen. In this moment when the fashion industry discusses inclusivity, diversity, and equality, it was only fitting that the cover story was shot in New York, just a few days before the Met Gala, by an all female-team. Renowned photographer Emma Summerton was behind the lens, while the styling was done by Anna Katsanis and overseen by Vogue Arabia fashion director Katie Trotter. The hair and makeup looks were created by Kim Kimble and Sheika Daley respectively.

Reebok Alter the Icons Collection × JayIDK

Reebok has unveiled its second iteration of the game-changing “Alter the Icons” collection – this time in partnership with emerging rapper and record producer JayIDK.

The collection, which puts a new and refreshing spin on classic Reebok silhouettes like the Classic Leather and Workout Plus, tears up the traditional design rulebook and will launch August 15. In addition to launching the collection, Reebok has also debuted a video with JayIDK – highlighting his journey and alternative path to success.

See the video here: https://youtu.be/LJK2xdMAodc

They say you don’t mess with a Classic – but Reebok’s done it anyway. Reebok Classic’s newest campaign with Foot Locker Inc., dubbed Alter the Icons, discards decades of design practice to present radically chopped-and-skewed, heritage-hacked spins on the brand’s most iconic sneakers in an open statement against convention.

Featuring classic footwear with reinterpretations of the brand’s iconic Starcrest and vector logos, the campaign spotlights the brand’s unique approach to heritage – that tradition isn’t canon, but a platform for contemporary thinking. Alter the Icons looks to guide the rising generation of future designers, artists and other young visionaries in helping them homage history without being swallowed by it. It is a challenge for creatively and culturally-minded consumers across the globe: dare to alter your path.

To launch the campaign, Reebok is dropping the product with a street-level pop-up saluting New York’s famed street merchant culture. A brand-approved street merchant will set up shop starting at 10 a.m. outside Foot Locker’s New York Flagship on 34th Street in Herald Square featuring street-legal spins on classic Reebok merch. Open to the public for one day only, the pop-up will guide consumers into the Foot Locker storefront where they will discover the official campaign product.

“With this launch pop-up activation, we wanted to pay homage to something that has not only been a part of New York City’s street culture for decades, but speaks to the spirit behind what Alter the Icons is all about – challenging convention and breaking the rules,” says Neal Taylor, General Manager of Reebok Classic.

The campaign will continue by rolling out a series of video profiles featuring a selection of game changing contemporary music artists – including Saweetie, Lil Baby, Bodega Bamz, JAYIDK and MadeinTYO – sharing their unconventional paths to success that showcase a similar departure from creative tradition. A trailer for the series featuring these visionary artists can be viewed here.

“Alter the Icons is about celebrating those who have similarly broken custom within their mediums – fashion, music, design, art – by using their own ‘spin’ to alter traditional paths to success,” Neal Taylor adds, “We see these five artists as role models for bold cultural departure, inspiring a likeminded generation of rising creatives to push boundaries and march to the beat of their own drum.”

The first drop of the Alter the Icons collection, featuring the Classic Leather and Workout Plus silhouettes, is available for purchase beginning today on Reebok.com, and in-store and online at Foot Locker, Lady Foot Locker, Kids Foot Locker, SIX:02, Champs Sports and Footaction for $85 while supplies last.

Artist Pension Trust Announces Art Display

Carefully curated works are featured throughout the New York City building, including in Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group’s newest spaces, Manhatta and Bay Room

Artist Pension Trust (APT) is pleased to announce its new project at 28 Liberty Street, a 60-story skyscraper, located in Manhattan’s Financial District. APT artist works will be featured throughout Fosun International’s 28 Liberty building, including at Manhatta, the Danny Meyer-run Union Square Hospitality Group’s (USHG) newly-opened restaurant and bar, as well as Bay Room, USHG’s first-ever event space, both of which occupy the 60th floor of the building.

“Art has always been essential part of our restaurant designs,” says Meyer. “We are thrilled to include over 100 pieces of artwork from Artist Pension Trust in Manhatta and Bay Room, both by top local talent and established international artists. We love APT’s mission of helping artists and fostering a community between them, and we feel privileged to benefit from their meaningful work, and to share it with our guests.”

Featured artists in the space include Logan Grider, an Oregon-based artist and Theresa Hackett, a Los Angeles-based artist, who will both have their works featured inside Manhatta and Bay Room. Hackett’s work incorporates non-conventional materials to create hybrid landscapes while Grider’s pieces showcase an abstract theme.

“This partnership between APT, Fosun, and USHG is an exciting opportunity for our artist community,” says Zohar Elhanani, CEO of Artist Pension Trust. “We constantly seek new and exciting avenues to highlight the works of APT’s artists and the opportunity to showcase selected art throughout 28 Liberty and in both Manhatta and Bay Room, art that has been personally selected by Danny Meyer, will serve as fantastic exposure for our artists.”

Founded in 2004, APT (Artist Pension Trust) is a unique social initiative, designed to bring financial security and international exposure to a select group of emerging and established artists around the world. APT acts as a mutual assurance program, allowing participating artists to benefit from the sale of each other’s work — in essence, ensuring that the big-name artists behind blockbuster shows can support the work of talented peers still gaining art world recognition.

Since its foundation, APT has worked with some of the world’s leading contemporary artists, from Turner Prize winners to recipients of prestigious awards including the Prix de Rome and Deutsche Bank’s Artist of the Year. Works by APT artists have been loaned for exhibitions at the world’s leading institutions and have been prominent features of events including Art Basel and the Venice Biennale.

Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami will return to Wynwood Arts District starting in 2018, with a new and long-term location at Mana Wynwood – offering an exceptional and elevated world-class experience for both exhibitors and art enthusiasts during this year’s Miami Art Week, taking place December 5—9. The only venue featuring “Two Shows in One Location” during Miami Art Week will cover more than 100,000 square feet of exhibition space and be even more accessible for visitors on foot and by car, all within walking distance from Wynwood’s trendiest restaurants, bars and retail boutiques.

Red Dot Miami, a curated gallery-only contemporary art show, now in its 13th year, will be located inside Mana Wynwood. Red Dot Miami presents [ILLUMINATE] as the curatorial theme for 2018.

The complete Red Dot Miami program will be announced in November.

Spectrum Miami, an upscale and urban curated contemporary art show, now in its 8th year, will be located adjacent to Red Dot Miami at Mana Wynwood. Spectrum Miami presents special programs and site-specific exhibitions that showcase the thriving art landscape of the city, informed by the 2018 curatorial theme [ALLURE]. Atmospheric abstracts. Provocative photographs. Seductive sculptures. The allure of contemporary and modern art is mysteriously and undeniably powerful. Spectrum Miami is where contemporary meets extraordinary, featuring the works of more than 160 exhibiting artists and galleries from the Florida region, the U.S. and around the globe. Known for its urban and upscale works of art, Spectrum Miami includes Art Labs and Art Talks as well as the Spotlight Program, providing collectors with a focused look at several prominent exhibitors, each creating a site-specific exhibition, and the LaunchPad Artist Program, showcasing an emerging and unrepresented artist who is selected to create an exhibition at the show, selected from a collaboration among local art institutions, galleries, and Spectrum Miami. Spectrum Miami will also include [FOTO SOLO], a stand-alone exhibit, introduced at Artexpo New York in 2016, that features up to 10 artists from various continents who have been chosen for their exemplary photographic fine art. The complete Spectrum Miami program will be announced in November.

BMI Stage at Lollapalooza

The third day of the BMI Stage at Lollapalooza gets underway with GRAMMY Award-winner Grace Weber, a go-to collaborator of Chance the Rapper and Kanye West. Soul standout DAVIE, who has been praised for embodying the passion and vitality of the genre, hits the stage next, followed by the female fronted rock’n’roll duo BONES (UK) and the infectious beats of fast rising electronic producer Melvv. Introspective alt-pop singer/songwriter morgxn promises to bring his trademark lyrical authenticity to the stage before Australian songstress Vera Blue closes out the day with her blend of folk/pop and moody electronica.

For more information on the BMI Stage, please visit, www.bmi.com/lollapalooza and follow @BMI on Twitter for updates on your favorite acts. To join the conversation, use #BMILolla.

BMI STAGE SCHEDULE – SATURDAY, AUGUST 4th

GRACE WEBER | 1:00-1:40pm

“A talented artist who knows how to move you and your body with soulful grooves and real AF lyrics.” – Okayplayer

GRAMMY Award-winner Grace Weber is a star on the rise. An accomplished singer/songwriter, Weber collaborated with Chance the Rapper and Kanye West, co-writing and singing on “All We Got,” the opening track of Chance’s GRAMMY-winning Coloring Book. Her singles, “More Than Friends” and “Elated,” shot to the top of Spotify’s charts, and her performance at SXSW was compared to a “religious experience” byNylon. Beyond her flourishing success, Weber is the cofounder of The Music Lab, Inc, a non-profit organization that provides free music education, career preparation and performance programs to high-school students in her hometown of Milwaukee.

DAVIE | 2:10 – 2:50pm

“There are many types of musicians; some look good, some move good, some are great songwriters, some are great singers. DAVIE is all of these. He has a sound that fits next to the biggest names in contemporary R&B and that can hang comfortably with the giants of the genre’s past, all the way back to his hero, James Brown.” – Ticketmaster Insider

Inspired by the passion of vintage soul and the emotional uplift of gospel, New Jersey native DAVIE cut his musical teeth singing in churches in a traveling gospel band. His vocal prowess led him to Los Angeles, where he found work singing back-up for artists like Chris Brown, Cee-Lo Green and Childish Gambino. But it wasn’t until he went back to the churches of his youth that he found the key to unlock his own path. His debut EP, Black Gospel Vol.1, is filled with both Davie’s fiery spiritual passion and the celebratory energy of contemporary R&B, making the euphoria his songs can generate palpable.

BONES (UK) | 3:20 – 4:00pm

“This is Trent Reznor-level cool. BONES is doing the whole damn thing, middle fingers to the sky and in full control of their work. Rock on.” —NYLON

To hear them explain it, British duo BONES (UK) is “leading the charge of taking rock’n’roll firmly into the 31st century.” Comprised of vocalist Rosie Bones and guitarist Carmen Van Den Berg, the band has already racked up some serious cred to back up their claim. After hearing an early gig by the duo in London’s Camden Town, rock legend Jeff Beck asked Bones and Van Den Berg to collaborate—as both co-writers and players—on his 2016 album Loud Hailer. After gaining a massive following off of singles “Beautiful is Boring” and “Girls Can’t Play Guitar,” it’s easy to see why they have caught the attention and toured with the likes of: Highly Suspect, Band of Skulls, KOOKS, PVRIS, Skunk Anansie and Miyavi.

MELVV | 4:30 – 5:10pm

“[Melvv] has been thrilling listeners with his jazzed-up dance music for years now…continuing to cement his status as a dynamic provocateur.” – Dancing Astronaut

Melvv is the artist project of Milwaukee, WI producer/DJ Jeffrey Melvin. He started producing music at age 12 after being inspired by a video of Daft Punk’s 2007 Paris concert. Melvv is currently signed to Atlantic Records and has a new EP releasing in the fall, which he will be performing at his Lolla Set.

MORGXN | 5:40 – 6:20pm

“Morgxn captivated fans with his infectious pop musicality that’s expertly infused with deeply personal, complex yet relatable lyrics. It’s in this honesty, vulnerability, and authenticity that morgxn’s music resonates and connects with his legion of fans.” -Ones to Watch

morgxn, at age 8, became the youngest member of the Nashville Symphony Choir, and at age 9 penned his fist song “I’ll Always Be There for You.” morgxn decamped from Nashville to Los Angeles, in order to find “space to think, breathe, and be with myself.” While at a party he was asked if he wanted to meet Stevie Nicks, who sagely told the young songwriter, “You have to keep moving. This world will walk all over you if you don’t just keep going.” This advice changed morgxn’s life and his career. His debut album inspired by loss, Vital, is filled with cascading synth-scapes and cool beats, celebrating the emotional complexities of the human condition. His breakout single, “Home,” has earned nearly 7 million Spotify streams, and even inspired a partnership with The Covenant House, a charity for young runaways.

VERA BLUE | 6:50 – 7:30pm

“There are many things we can be grateful to Australia for…but topping the list must be new alt-pop queen Vera Blue, who is undoubtably on the path to world domination.” – Paper Magazine

Vera Blue is an Australian singer/songwriter who started off playing acoustic folk music before adding lush, sultry electronic elements to broaden her sound. The results are sometimes gentle, sometimes ferocious and always show-stopping, with her commanding vocals front and center. After some crucial collabs with artists like Illy and Slumberjack, she released her EP Fingertips in 2016, followed by her debut album Perennial the following year. Response to both her recorded work and live shows have been rapturous.

Reebok’s Swizz Beatz 2018 DMX Series 2000

Just today Reebok Classic launched their SwizzBeatz 2018 DMC Series 2000 and it is getting some serious attention.

The inspiration for this head-turning pair of kicks is done by the rapper himself Swizz Beatz . Using colors of purple, orange, and blue it is no wonder why this pair of killer kicks is being talked about.

Not only does this design reveal something unique to the public, but it reflects Swizz’s artistic abilities as he applies the same artistic skills in the music industry. So, wait…Not only is he talented in music, but in designing as well? I sense some double threat–watch out folks!

As a way to promote this pair of sneakers, Reebok shot striking content of the rapper in the comfort of his own home–a place where he relaxes and gets creative.

The promotion of this can be found here if you have not yet seen it–speechless.

The message of his promotional video is that he surrounds himself with art that is considered “disruptive.” Something that he personally admires as inspirational, bold, and absolute daring.

“I wanted to do something with Reebok that was different than what we’ve done together in the past. I wanted to celebrate the ‘disrupters’ aka the Disruptive Kind on all levels,” says Beatz.

Dying to grab a hold of these kicks?  Your wish is my command. Click here to purchase them today for $140 (P.S. an orange colorway drops Friday, August 3rd)
