Amongst avant-garde looks and inventively proportioned clothing items, Shayne Oliver creative director of Hood By Air seems to have taken inspiration from a retro and classic Nike model with the creation of a new pair of Woman’s heels. At the recent Hood By Air New York Fashion week show, models strutted down the runway donning multiple color-ways of heeled shoes with the word “AIR” highly visible on the side panelings. Sneaker enthusiasts and people paying attention to kicks in the mid 90s remember the Nike Air More Uptempo with admiration and reverence. Chicago Bulls Scottie Pippen chose the Uptempo as his signature sneaker and the shoes transitioned successfully to massive off court appeal. Hood By Air has a history of reinterpreting classic Nike models, earlier this year the brand meshed classic Nike Huarache like tooling with the storied Timberland boot construction.
Shayne Oliver decided to pair his creatively invigorated designs with new showings of officially branded Nike Air sneakers as well, outfitting both female and male models in the Nike Air Flight 89. The Flight 89 was briefly available on Nike ID last year. The first sneaker to bear the “Air Flight” title, 1989’s air flight displayed an innovative design and completely influenced the coveted Air Jordan 4 with it’s distinct look and striking midsole. Hood By Air as a brand has always melded the worlds of streetwear and urban style with a high fashion detail and presentation, dedicating itself to an aesthetic a host of other designers also used this recent New York Fashion week. View more images of the Nike Uptempo inspired heels and shots of a few progressive high fashion Air Flight 89 pairings in the gallery below.

Alexander Wang created a capsule collection with a cause and called in some friends
Alexander Wang enlisted the help of a few celebrity peers and friends in an effort to promote and showcase his labels newly released message centric apparel collection. Inaugurating a decade of Alexander Wang fashion, a street wear ready selection of hoodies and T-shirts is now available online and at Wang retail locations worldwide. Blatantly and boldly inviting purveyors of the gear to “Do Something”, the statement pieces were devised by creative director Alexander Wang in an effort to advertise youth activism and volunteering. The clothing’s statement is attached directly to a charity organization, with 50% of all proceeds from sale of the monotone styles being directed to DoSomething.org.
View the gallery above to check out a host of youth influencers, iconic faces and overall a squad that has Wang’s personal admiration donning the clothing pieces. “We felt like, let’s do a campaign and bring together people that we really respect or who have been a big part of our brand, who helped support us, who’ve given us support, been supporting us all these years,” Wang told Yahoo Style. For this campaign musical talents such as Asap Rocky, Tyga, Rod Stewart, Pusha T, Angel Haze, Weeknd, Jhene Aiko, Haim and Grimes all dedicate their image to a cause backed by one of the biggest names in high fashion. Models like Cara Delevingne, Georgia May Jagger and Kate Moss strike signature poses alongside personal friends of Wang Kanye West and the most followed woman on Instagram Kim Kardashian. Photographed by Steven Klein and creative directed by Pascal Dangin of KiDS Creative, the star studded campaign will hopefully reinforce the idea of positive youth activity while also providing fashion fans with new black and white tops.

Tommy Hilfiger launched Rafael Nadal’s ambassadorship with a sexy pop-up tennis tournament yesterday in Bryant Park.
The Essence Clothing was inspired by the legends of art, music, entertainment and fashion. Not only did these artists provide a reflection of their current worlds, but altered and created new ones. This is a lively and current apparel brand which represents the cultivation of hip-hop in the GOLDEN ERA. The company is based on the foundation of an influential time and by using notable quotes from legendary artists, it reminds the beloved hip-hop heads where it all started. Evidently, in the last 2 years or so, the old school and throwback days have become one of the biggest styles and fashion trends. This all initiated in music, of course. From numerous prominent male artists incorporating the new and old school on records, to some of the trendiest female celebs sporting the “tomboy” looks embodied with feminine luxury.
This is more than refined urban attire; The Essence represents a lifestyle of appreciation, love and respect for the hip-hop culture. Specializing in contemporary menswear, drawing from elements in art, fashion, film, athletics, and music, designer, John Goldberg, is now venturing in a unisex line. The urban undercurrent of the collection was inspired specifically by the New York City hip hop culture of the 90’s, that shaped the lives of youths from that era. The name, The Essence, is symbolic of the raw core of the culture that stirs emotion, grabs at the heart and sparks creativity.
Looks are styled with excessive layering, symbolic graphics, creative wordplay and luxurious materials to create unique items that feel custom and considered. The line includes wool, leather, suede and denim based outerwear along with modified jerseys, utility pants, shorts and joggers. The inspiration behind each piece grabs a specific buyer’s heart. The feelings evoked along with the level of quality separate the brand from a highly competitive market. Pieces are to be coveted. Once purchased they are to be considered a timeless addition to a buyer’s wardrobe. The brand is developed for a select audience. It is understood that some will “get it” and others will not…much like the music and art that has served as the brand’s inspiration
Check out the gallery below for some of the latest pieces from The Essence.

Beyonce is making history…again
As big as Beyonce is, she does an incredible job of staying out of headlines. Even her daughter, Blue Ivy, is seldom seen or heard from, unlike similarly coveted celebrity kids. However, when she does pop up, she shuts it down.
Late last night, the September cover of Vogue was teased on social media, and none other than Beyonce is standing tall on the hotly-coveted cover. Beyonce marks just the third Black woman to be featured on Anna Wintour‘s world-changing publication’s cover, and the first Black female artist in Vogue history to grace the September cover.
You can grab your copy on newsstands soon, but for now, check out Beyonce like you’ve never seen her before in an exclusive Vogue video here.
