Recently, notable fashion stylist, Michael Mann, sadly passed away. His cause of death is still unknown.
Not long ago, model Draya Michele teamed up with Mann for her 360 Magazine cover. “You pushed for me. When they said I couldn’t be a fashion girl, you said I could,” asserts Draya (on a recent Instagram post). It’s evident that Mann made a sincere effort to see both his clients and loved ones reach their personal best.
“From the moment I first laid eyes on you I fell in love. One of the most captivating spirits I’ve ever met. Our journey together wasn’t perfect but it was worth it. I am in disbelief and pain writing this. Rest in Paradise my friend, I love you!,” stated Lil Mama.
Recently, a GoFundMe page was created to assist Mann’s family with costly funeral arrangements.
True Religion has tapped Bella Hadid to be the face of the brand. The supermodel embodies all things True Religion, past, present and future; iconic, edgy and everlasting.
An inherit fan of the brand, Bella was the natural choice to meld the iconic essence of the brand with the modern view of its future. An all-star team was assembled including photographer Boo George, stylist Mimi Cuttrell, and hair and makeup duo Jen Atkin and Mary Phillips to create imagery and complementary looks that usher True Religion into a new era that honors the heritage of the brand.
A quintessential, confident LA girl with roots at home and abroad, Bella’s voice was not only an inspiration, but an integral part in imagining this campaign, envisioning the brand through her eyes for the next generation of True Religion fans.
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”.”
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.
ABOUT OFF-WHITE ℅ VIRGIL ABLOH
Established in 2013, Off-White is defining the grey area between black and white as a color. Under the brand name, seasonal collections of men’s and women’s clothing, objects, furniture, and publications are articulating a current culture vision. Collections embedded in a recurrent back story with an emphasis on creating garments that have an identity by design. With a design studio based in Milan, Italy the label harnesses the history and craftsmanship within the country yet offers a global perspective in terms of design and trends. With a clear vision of splicing the reality of how clothes are worn and the artistic expression of high-fashion, creative director and designer Virgil Abloh explores concepts in the realm of youth culture in the contemporary context.
New Track ‘Begging‘ Available Now
“She’s blazing a trail that’s all her own” Guardian
“The best R&B to come out of London in recent memory” Fader
“A richness and honesty that sets her out” Noisey
“A breakout star” Stylist
Today, Mabel releases her surprise debut mixtape, Ivy To Roses, which is introduced by new track ‘Begging.’ Available this Friday, Ivy To Roses also features breakout single ‘Finders Keepers’, which has become one of the standout, slow-burning anthems of 2017 (currently climbing the UK Top 20, playlisted across the likes of Radio 1, Capital, 1Xtra, and having surpassed 12 million streams).
“‘Ivy to Roses‘, says Mabel, “is another piece of the puzzle. It’s collection of songs that I love and want the world to hear right now. This is only the beginning of my journey but I want people to feel part of the evolution of my music, which is why I’m putting another project out now.”
The mark of a young artist truly hitting her stride, Ivy To Roses is a striking statement of intent from Mabel. Here is a cohesive, expertly-crafted collection of songs that explore control in modern relationships (the power-play of ‘Come Over’, the feminine independence of ‘Low Key’) and those moments when you lose it (the raw vulnerability of ‘Roses’, or the dancehall-inspired frustration of ‘Begging’). Mabel’s debut mixtape is ultimately about growing up, and into your own skin: the beautiful, piano-led ‘Ivy’ pays tribute to those family and friends who you take into the next chapter of your life, as well as the actual ivy which Mabel found growing in her bedroom and continues to flourish (no matter how many times it’s cut back).
Ivy To Roses is a vivid snapshot of Mabel’s extraordinary personal journey thus far, and a tantalizing taste of where she may go next. Born into a musical dynasty, she has spent the last couple of years carving out her own sound, her own way; now arriving at the point where Mabel is ready to make the type of debut album she has spent her whole life (from choreographing DIY dance routines with her sister to writing songs in secret) building up towards. Along the way, Mabel has grown into one of British pop’s most refreshing and positive young role models: moving effortlessly between the worlds of music, fashion, dance and art, and as at home collaborating with Stormzy or Tate Modern as she is touring with Years & Years and teaming up with campaigns for Adidas.
Always an honest, open and exciting young talent, Ivy To Roses announces Mabel as a blossoming, bonafide pop star who’s not done growing yet.
