As a result of that appointment, Ms. Grayson will step down as the chair of the Audit Committee but will continue to serve on True Religion’s board of directors.

“As a board member for the past year, Chelsea has been instrumental in helping True Religion evolve the brand,” said Gene Davis, chair of the True Religion board, “We are fortunate to have someone of Chelsea’s caliber and experience step up to lead the company as we continue to innovate our products and customer experience. In addition, we would also like to recognize and thank John for his incredible leadership and dedication to the brand.”

Ms. Grayson said, “As a Los Angeles native, I am honored to have been chosen to lead an iconic brand like Los Angeles-based True Religion. I look forward to continuing the momentum started with recent initiatives like adding Bella Hadid as a millennial face of the brand and our partnership with global sports juggernaut, Manchester United.”

While Ms. Grayson serves as interim CEO, True Religion intends to conduct a process to identify a permanent CEO.

She also sits on the board of directors of Delta Dental of California (where she is a member of the Nominating & Corporate Governance Committee), and the advisory board of Marca Global.

Grailed x Lil Yachty

Lil Yachty announces on Instagram that he will be selling his entire Supreme collection and a portion of his designer wardrobe on Grailed.

He wants to give fans an opportunity to own some of the most sought-after Supreme pieces and rare collectibles from Raf Simons, Saint Laurent, Gucci, Margiela x Converse, Gosha and more – items they couldn’t otherwise find or buy and at prices they can afford.

Grailed wants to provide their users and Yachty’s fans with an intimate glimpse into his world so they can put themselves in the shoes of an icon. Yachty has always been very engaged with his fanbase and now he’s furthering that by giving unprecedented access on the platform he knows will speak to them directly.

“I think it’s all about individuality. There’s always that one out of the bunch that’s just destined to be different. I had red hair in 11th grade. There’s always someone who dares to be different, like Andre 3000, Young Thug and myself. I remember people used to laugh at my hair. You got the people who follow the trend and then you have the trendsetter. Regardless of everything else going on, they do what they want. I never dressed to impress anybody. I’m flashy, but I don’t wear anything in the hope someone else likes it. I wear what I want to wear because I just like to wear it.”

The collection is live on grailed.com for a preview. Yachty’s sales drop date is Monday August 27th.

BOY SMELLS x UNMENTIONABLES

Candles that smell. Underwear that don’t :

 

 

California Candle Company Expands With Intimate Apparel Launch.

BOY SMELLS is pleased to announce the expansion of their brand with the introduction of intimate apparel with Boy Smells Unmentionables. Debuting March 19, 2018, the new line of men’s and women’s underwear further enhances the home experience that is central to everything Boy Smells does. The debut Boy Smells Unmentionables collection includes three styles: a minimal mid-rise brief for men, a classic mid-rise boxer brief for men, and a minimal mid-rise brief for women. All styles are made in Peru out of premium Pima cotton. For color, Boy Smells has chosen to further expand the brands signature pink with other neo-naturalistic tones: bone, buff, bare, and blush.

 

 

ABOUT THE SMELLS

Boy Smells candles are a proprietary blend of coconut oil and beeswax; beautiful and rich–burning. Each scent has been developed to have its own unique expression; notes plucked from a personal catalog of olfactory memories, then evolved and expressed in a modern context. Both familiar and unexpected.

 

 

ABOUT THE BOYS

Boy Smells is the creation of David Kien and Matthew Herman who established the brand in 2014 in the Pico-Union District of Los Angeles, California.

Started as a scent experiment, and later developed as a product, both pooled their experiences in design and production worlds of fashion and applied them to a home fragrance collection.

HERON PRESTON x Off-White

VIRGIL ABLOH AND HERON PRESTON REVEAL “COLLABORATION” HANDBAG

For their first collaborative release, Virgil Abloh (Off-White ℅ Virgil Abloh) and Heron Preston present “COLLABORATION”, a concept carryall that incorporates the designers’ common exploration of industrial elements. This accessory is a living hybrid: its dual-colored strap is a fusion of Off-Whites graphic yellow Weight Securing System strap and Preston’s signature orange band with the branded word “Style” in Russian. The strap is a purposeful note of asymmetry in a piece with clean balance. The transparent body is printed with Off-White’s famed diagonal white lines, along with the words “COLLABORATION”. Black carabiner clips secure the strap, while inside, an industrial netting-inspired inner tote is a textural contrast to the sleek exterior. Substantial industrial hardware finishes the design, with metal nuts that cleanly secure orange leather straps.

“Heron Preston’s ability to think without limits comes to life in this bag we created together,” Abloh says. “The mix of the materials combined with Off-White DNA lead to a final product that suggests a different idea of a “handbag”.”

PRICING
“COLLABORATION” – Mini – $942.00
“COLLABORATION” – Medium – $1,232.00

ABOUT HERON PRESTON

Heron Preston is the true embodiment of an artist born of the post-internet generation. Multi-faceted and genre-bending, he is a cultural icon in youth culture, and emerging designer in high fashion. He founded his eponymous fashion brand in 2016, and in two short seasons has garnered an international following. The common thread among his impressive bodies of work is a commitment to innovation, experimentation, and unpredictability. Heron Preston finds particular joy in the unexpected; taking conventional themes and reinterpreting them. Take for example his “UNIFORM” project from 2015, the designer’s first major collection, in which he collaborated with the NYC Department of Sanitation on a series of zero waste themed clothes and accessories. He’s also served as the global digital producer for Nike and of course, creative consultant to Kanye West, most notably on his work for the Life of Pablo and Yeezy fashion label.

RONNI HAWK × 360 MAGAZINE

Ronni Hawk can be seen on the hit Disney Channel series “Stuck in the Middle.” Opposite a talented cast, Ronni plays the pretty, yet self-absorbed Rachel; the eldest of the Diaz’s seven children. “Stuck in the Waterpark – The Movie” will share the Diaz family adventures as they embark on a family vacation that doesn’t exactly go according to plan! The movie will also be available on Disney Channel’s multiple on-demand platforms including the app and Disney Channel vod.

In light of her newfound success, Ronni, who has considered herself an environmentalist since a very young age, is eager to use her position in the public eye to give back to those in need. Influenced by her father’s philanthropic work providing dental services and basic needs to communities in third world countries, Ronni has recently partnered with Thirst Project to raise funds and awareness surrounding the worldwide water crisis. With the launch of her campaign, Ronni will call on her fans to join her in raising money to fund projects building wells in communities where water is scarce.

Following in the footsteps of her mother, Ronni fell in love with performing while studying ballet as a young child. Ronni danced six hours a day, dividing her time between the Bak School of the Arts in West Palm Beach, Florida, and the Boca Ballet Theatre. It was here that she discovered her interest and abilities in acting in an effort to expand her range of performance. During a weekend acting workshop for aspiring actors, Hawk connected with two acting coaches from LA who encouraged her to pursue her newfound passion and suggested she try Hollywood.

At the age of 13, Ronni seized an opportunity and flew to Los Angeles to meet with agents and managers. The first agent she interviewed with signed her on the spot in all categories, TV/Film, Commercial, Print and Voiceover. With the support of her friends and family, Ronni flew between the two coasts for auditions and training. At 15, she booked the role of “Rachel” on “Stuck in the Middle” and stayed in Los Angeles and began shooting the Disney sitcom.

Ronni’s experiences as a young dancer taught her the importance of self-control and prepared her for performing in front of large audiences. It was Ronni’s spirit and determination that prevented the rigors of the industry from having a negative impact on her self-confidence. Hawk equates much of her drive and focus as an actress to the intensity and strictness necessary to perfect the craft of dance. Ronni is also quick to thank great coaches, tutors and her family for all of their help, support and encouragement. For her current role, Ronni references TV favorites including “Vampire Diaries,” “The Originals” and “Peaky Blinders,” but looks forward to growing into dramatic roles as her career matures. She looks to the careers of film icons such as Leonardo Dicaprio, Matt Damon, Angelina Jolie and Robin Williams and classic works like “The Dead Poets Society” for inspiration.

Heir n Heiress × LA Fitness

Founded in January of 2017 by Christian Rupe of Toledo, OH, Heir n Heiress [HnH] was designed as a new fitness and lifestyle brand for fitness, fashion, and contemporary lifestyle. For the better part of the last half-century, the overall populous of the world has seen the same brands with some changes here and there in adaptation to cultural expectations. Heir n Heiress was founded to be a new brand to attack multiple demographics of individuals. HnH wants to represent athletes, models, and the everyday individual. 

Rather than simply being a brand that is only seen in the athletic spectrum or only seen in the fashion industry, HnH wants to be a brand that anybody can wear, whenever. Recently, HnH has targeted top level athletes, such as Justin Gatlin winner of the 100m dash at this years (2017) World Championships in London, in hopes to expand our horizon amongst the athletic world. During the month of September, we have released a new line of athletic wear that can be found on our website. To expand our horizon, HnH wants to show more people wearing our brand in their everyday lives while doing what they take passion in. Our slogan, “Be Crowned A Champion” is one that attacks this specific task.

“Be Crowned A Champion.” What does this slogan mean? Everybody wants to feel as if they are great in what they love to do whether that being a sport, hobby, job, or lifestyle choice that they represent. Being crowned a champion does not simply suit that athletic life, but it gives a sense of accomplishment to anyone who feels as if they are the best at what they do. Our crown logo is a physical representation of that effort to be the best of the best. HnH wants our logo to stand out in a crowd in hopes to draw attention the individual(s) wearing it on their apparel. With that attention, it will motivate more individuals to want to show off their talents to the world.

Why wear Heir n Heiress apparel? Simply put…you want to be great…you want to be crowned a champion. YOU want people to look at you as someone who is driven to be great! With our new line of athletic apparel that has been newly released during the month of September as stated earlier, we want people to desire our logo. We are a brand that is nondiscriminatory and nonjudgmental. HnH wants to produce more casual style clothing alongside our athletic lines to reach all walks of life in hopes to show adaptation to the ever-changing culture of the world.

Recently, HnH ran a successful promotion with 360 Magazine as Heir n Heiress took over their Instagram live during the weekend of September 23rd, 2017. This live event took place at Ohio Northern University’s Homecoming Weekend. The next major move for HnH will happen on September 28th at 5:30pm Eastern time at a popular LA Fitness location at 2859 N Holland Sylvania Rd, Toledo, OH 43615. Here, HnH will be launching the new line of fitness wear. If anyone is in the area for this event, stop by to receive promotional items and a chance to win free apparel.
