Transparency Collection

Last night, Reebok Classic celebrated its new Alter The Icons ‘Transparency’ collection by creating and hosting a one-night-only ice-skating party in the heart of Manhattan. Evolving Reebok’s Alter The Icons platform that hacks the brand’s heritage styles to create fresh new renditions, the unexpected urban setting featured appearances from musicians Tayla Parx, Childish Major and DJ’s Amira and Kayla.

Designed to reflect our increasingly open and connected world, The Alter The Icons ‘Transparency’ collection brings truth to iconic silhouettes through experimentation with transparent materials that expose layers of classic design.

True to the theme of transparency, a custom ice rink took center stage at the event, surrounded by frozen sculptures and 360-degree video projections, bringing the essence of the collection to life. Star skaters from Harlem Youth Ice Hockey and Harlem Figure Skating surprised guests with on-ice performances.

The ‘Transparency’ collection features new takes on Reebok’s men’s, women’s, and kids’ Classic Leather, Workout Plus and Club C silhouettes, each of which are stripped down to their core and overlaid with transparent uppers. By rebuilding the classics and remixing them with transparent materials, the icon takes on a new dimension, uncovering a moment of truth through layers of detail.

The FW19 Alter The Icons ‘Transparency’ collection is now available in stores and online at Reebok.com and across the Foot Locker family of brands including Foot Locker, Footaction and Champs Sports, both in stores and online, including Eastbay.com.

MNEK “Girlfriend”

As anticipation builds for his first-ever U.S. headline tour, today MNEK brings us the biting new video for his single “Girlfriend.” Directed by MNEK in collaboration with up-coming director, Jordan Rossi, the video for “Girlfriend” can be viewed HERE.

 Following the release of his critically acclaimed full-length debut album, Language, [Capitol Records],

MNEK is switching up the well-worn cliché of the “cheating boyfriend” music video narrative for the 21st century, contrasting one interpretation of what a conventional relationship should or could be and what it actually is.

 The visual is a collage of both narrative and performance setups reminiscent of old school 1990s music videos that inspired both MNEK and Jordan. “Building the aesthetic was one of my favourite parts of the process.” Jordan explains. “Uzo had a really clear idea of what he wanted going in, so it was great to build on that and develop it further. I grew up on those old school 90s videos that everyone remembers from George Michael and Usher to Kelis and Destiny’s Child. It was really fun going back and forth with all these references and seeing how we could use them to elevate our video to the next level.”

 MNEK’s U.S. headline tour sees him touch down stateside for shows in six major markets across the country, beginning February 19 at Bowery Ballroom in New York City, a night at the famed Troubadourin Los Angeles, CA on February 26, and concluding February 27 at Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco, CA. Tickets are be available HERE. Tayla Parx, Raja Kumari, and MAAD will join MNEK on select dates, see the full itinerary below for details.

 Known for his inimitable voice, undeniable charisma, and magnetic presence, MNEK truly comes to life on stage. Don’t miss him on this intimate first tour. 

 Language boasts fan favorite singles such as “Colour” [feat. Hailee Steinfeld], “Tongue”, and “Correct”. Thus far, these tracks have tallied over 100 million cumulative streams within a few months’ time. NME and both awarded the album four stars, and NPR Music touted it as an “Album You Should Hear Now.

 MNEK signed his first publishing deal at age 14. “Never Forget You,” his duet with Zara Larsson, topped Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and has been certified 3x Platinum in the U.S. He featured on Duke Dumont’s “Need You (100%),” which earned a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Dance Recording.
