The treats will be the latest addition to KITH's host of confectionary goodies and will sit atop KITH Treats' ice cream swirl and milkshake offerings. The bite-size cupcakes are made by Baked by Melissa -- a New York-based dessert company known for miniature bakes -- and will be available throughout Pride month at all KITH Treats locations. The Ronnie Fieg-founded company recently opened up in Selfridges London, which is also complete with a Treats bar.
Baked by Melissa's mini cupcakes will be vanilla flavored and come in seven colors -- reflecting the rainbow flag which is synonymous with the LGBTQ+ community. The KITH packaging also gets a Pride makeover by giving the logo a rainbow gradient and there will also be a special multi-colored mini cupcake on offer, too. The rainbow cupcake swirl will be available at all KITHTreats locations from June 24 to June 30.
Supreme has just officially unveiled teasers for its upcoming collaboration with Jamaican dancehall and reggae great Buju Banton. Banton became a fixture in the music industry during the early '90s with the release of two critically-acclaimed albums, Stamina Daddy and Mr. Mention. In fact, in 1992, the Kingston-born artist also broke Bob Marley's record for the greatest number of #1 singles in a year in Jamaica.
The 2000s saw even more success for Banton musically as he nabbed a Grammy for his album Before the Dawn in 2011 -- his earlier works Rasta Got Soul in 2010 and Friends for Life in 2004 also received Grammy nomination nods. The reggae star also had some run-ins with authorities as he was arrested and charged in 2009 for conspiracy to distribute and possession of cocaine. He was convicted in 2011 and sentenced to 10 years in a federal prison -- he has now been released since early December of 2018. Some of Banton's most notable songs include "Murderer," "Destiny," "Champion," and "Driver A" to name a few.
As for the Supreme collab, there's no official word on a release date but the recent photo hints that this could be an artist photo tee as seen in previous versions with other musicians who've fronted Supreme drops. Stay-tuned as we get more official product imagery and actual release date.
For Spring/Summer 2020 at Paris Fashion Week Men's, LOEWE took over the UNESCO World Headquarters to present its latest runway show, appropriately choosing the world heritage site as the backdrop for its culturally-infused collection. Supported by works from artist Hilary Lloyd to complete the setting, the Spanish fashion house invoked a "nomadic mood" through long draping silhouettes and a clash of international textiles.
Tunics, caftans and sailor's shirts were complemented with equally-flowing bottoms, while materials sourced from around the world drove home the global influence. Among them, hand-embroidered cotton from Bangladesh, hand-dyed indigo cloths from Burkina Faso and lenin denim from Japan were mixed with LOEWE's own "oro cashmere" suede. While the assortment was grounded in casual, easy pieces, the occasional tuxedo, trench coat and two-button blazer made its way into the range, reflecting the brand's underlying tailored aesthetic.
A smattering of dungarees brought out a more natural, workwear sensibility, while stripes in chevron, horizontal and vertical arrangements offered a selection of nautical patterns. The footwear, led by moccasins, suede sandals and boat shoes, punctuated the outfits with an outdoorsy statement, leaving accessories like shoulder bags and backpacks to finish off the collection with a functional moment.
See how it all melded together by watching LOEWE's SS20 show in the video below, and for more from Paris Fashion Week Men's take a look at Hermès' artistic approach for the season.
Swedish label Our Legacy recently debuted its Spring 2020 collection during Paris Fashion Week. Titled "Joyous Reunion," the new range is heavily influenced by different social movements and changing societies. Referencing enlightenment and social progress, pieces throughout the collection are inspired by different craft techniques and the relationship between tradition and progression.
Speaking about the collection, Our Legacy Creative Director Cristopher Nying explained the influences: "As we become more enlightened, there is a disconnect between tradition and progression. This collection is inspired by that disconnect, and the social movements who push boundaries, whether it is the anti-war demonstrations, the sexual liberation or the birth of funk. Demonstrations, banners and slogans are the natural means of message for social change and therefore the collection shows inspiration by handicraft, with many different techniques and applications used to create contrast in materials and fabrics. The result is pieces of clothing as modern placards."
In order to showcase these reference points, the collection mixes "retro futuristic" materials with traditional techniques. Textures such as bleached silk, patent leather and latex-inspired synthetics are used alongside hand knitted detailing, photo collages, papier mache and an earthy color.
Take a look at the Spring 2020 collection in the gallery above, and expect it to start arring in January.
The adidas Consortium Runner Mid 4D is returning in in a clean "White/White" iteration just in time for the warmer months. adidas is bringing the mid-cut sneaker back following its brief hiatus, as the Primeknit silhouette was recently reworked by Ronnie Fieg for a multi-colored "Aspen" makeover last Fall.
adidas' futuristic 4D sole unit contrasts the sneaker's stark white upper, appearing in its go-to hue of "Aero Green." The sole unit is made from light, oxygen and liquid resin and has been crafted using data from athletes for optimum levels of energy return.
Its white upper features a slight gradient in its knit pattern and sees green threads add support toward the back of the sneaker's heel. A base-to-cuff heel tab adds further structure to the sock-like silhouette, while tonal laces on the front bring the mid-cut 4D together for a snug fit.
The adidas Consortium Runner Mid 4D is finished with a Continental outsole and has a number of standout design features, such as exposed 4D technology inside, signature Consortium tongue tabs and tonal Three Stripes which lightly stand out against the knitted upper. Keep an eye out for raffles at stockists such as Sneakersnstuff to be in with a chance of picking up a pair of these highly-anticipated sneakers, which are priced at £399 GBP (approx. $510 USD).
Vans is set to drop its latest Anaheim Factory Collection, revisiting heritage prints and archive design elements. The new collection features two motifs, with the "Stripes" print made famous by BMX legend Eddie Fiola and the "Summer Leaf" print that first made its debut in the 1970s.
The "Stripes" print comes on both the the Era 96 DX, which sees red stripes alongside blue checks, and the Sk8-Hi 38 DX, which comes with blue suede uppers complete with the stripe print on its medial side. For the "Summer Leaf" design, Vans have reworked the same two silhouettes. The black and pink print covers the whole Era 96 DX, while the Sk8-Hi 38 DX features white suede uppers alongside the "Summer Leaf" sidewalls.
Take a look at the latest Anaheim Factory Collection in the gallery above, and expect the pack to hit the Vans web store in July this year.
Mark Ronson drops his fifth studio album Late Night Feelings via RCA Records. The highly-anticipated album is a collection of what Ronson says are "Sad Bangers" featuring a wide variety of artists such as Miley Cyrus, Lykke Li, YEBBA and more.
Ronson states, “I guess I’ve said quite a lot about this record up to now. That it’s a break-up record full of “sad bangers” that came in the wake of certain events in my life, and while it may have been inspired & held together by my own formidable heartbreak—in reality, everyone’s truth is contained here in this album -- Lykke, King Princess, Camila, Yebba, Alicia, Dodgr, Miley, Angel, Diana, Romy, Ilsey. So I want to thank them, these women—some of my favorite musician/singer/songwriters of this modern era—for lending their astounding voices/words/melodies and life experience (often painful) to this collection and for being so giving with their time, feelings and emotions.” Stream the new LP below.
A pristine 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta by Scaglietti is heading to the auction block later this year. One of just 1,383 produced, the vintage Ferrari is helmed as one of the greatest supercars ever built and is known for its admired performance and as Don Johnson's first car-of-choice in Miami Vice.
This particular 365 GBT/B Daytona comes in Ferrari's go-to shade of red and features chrome detailing on its Scaglietti-designed body. The vehicble is also equipped with yellow-tinged pop-up headlights, wire rims and chrome bumpers, and is fitted with a 4.4-liter V12 engine.
The 356 GTB/4 Daytona was the most expensive and powerful Ferrari production sports car when it released in the late '60s. One lucky buyer can expect a power output of 352 BHP and 318 lb-ft of torque -- enough to propel the car to 174 MPH. Inside, the Ferrari is finished in plush black leather and features all of the car's original equipment, such as a three-spoke steering wheel, big round dials and a retro cassette player.
The 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta by Scaglietti will be auctioned by RM Sotheby's during its Auburn Fall sale from August 29 to September 1. The car is estimated to sell between $525,000 USD and $625,000 USD.
Toy Story 4 has broken the global box office record for an animated movie after it made $238m USD worldwide during its debut weekend.
The Disney Pixar movie -- which released 24 years after the original -- performed particularly well in the European and Latin American markets, yet slumped in China and failed to meet targets in the US. Toy Story 4 was predicted to make $140m USD in the US, yet managed just $118m USD.
Nine years ago, Toy Story 3 generated over $1bn USD in ticket sales worldwide -- a first for an animated film. The film's UK screening broke the record for ticket sales for an animated film, hitting $15m USD in the first three days. However, Toy Story 4 failed to smash higher box office predictions.
Despite the mixed sales figures, Toy Story 4 has managed to place as the fourth-biggest US opening for an animated movie, following the Incredibles 2, Finding Dory and Shrek the Third.

More Summery pieces include the wide-legged yellow trousers and the satin pink tailored joggers, both of which explore a more playful side for Hermès.
Hermès continues to explore color and exuberance through a selection of artistic jackets, seeing standout offerings such as the blue jacket with an all-over print of jewels, Surrealist art, flowers and nautical items, as well as the bold red bomber jacket. A nautical-themed monochrome shirt with green highlights continues this playful look, while an earthy blazer and a selection of fitted leather coats return Hermès back to its more formal roots.

Take a look at the entire Hermès SS20 collection in the gallery above.
