Rick Owens debuts his follow up to his men’s “tall” black leather sneaker, with the tall white leather sneaker. Personally I am a big fan of the simplistic design and amazing high quality leather that these are made of. But you judge for yourself, because at a price point of $1300 these are definitely a high fashion must snagg!!

The Three “Cam” Commandments!!: Camouflage style tips to follow

6 Aug

Camouflage has always been popular. It has gone from the world wars to designers like Maharishi basing their  whole brand around it. But there are definitely rules when it comes to incorporating camo to your everyday life and style. Below are some rules that I always abide by when it comes to wearing the notorious C.A.M.O !!

1. Up or Down:  There is definitely a limit to how much should be worn. Less is more, your choice top or bottom!

2. Camo Holds Weight:  Let the camo print take the lead of any outfit. It demands its own attention, no need to do too much else with an amazing camo print  garment.

 3. All Camo is NOT Created Equal: There are many different shades, shapes and colors, but they do not all look amazing when worn.

On one of my many adventures to BBC/BGC/Ice Cream/Bee Line-land where I got a sneak peak at what you can expect to see from the highly sought after “bee line” between Pharrell and designer Mark Mcnairy. Now I can’t give to much away but I felt that this new SnapBack varsity cap was one of the dopest pieces.

The hats will come in a few color ways and it has a chenille letter “B” as the center logo. What makes this cap extra cool is the word “Billionairy” that signifies the collaboration between BBC & Mark Mcnairy.
