The Atlanta Hawks played their first season in Atlanta in 1968. They played the inaugural season in the NBA as the Buffalo Bisons in 1946. The Hawks played in three different cities before finding a permanent home here in Atlanta. The Hawks have worn at least 10 different jerseys since moving to the ATL and I will discuss the top three they worn.
The Hawks blue and neon green jerseys I would rank third. These jerseys were worn from 1970-72. “Pistol” Pete Maravich was drafted by the Hawks with the third pick in the 1970 NBA Draft and the Hawks started wearing these jerseys Maravich’s Rookie season. Walt Bellamy and Lou Hudson also wore these jerseys during that era. Hudson number 23 jersey is retired by the Hawks now. Lou Hudson was a NBA All-Star for both years these jerseys were worn and the Hawks did reach the playoffs each year in these jerseys.
The Hawks red and yellow jerseys I would rank as their second best jersey. These jerseys were worn from 1982-1992. These jerseys featured the “Pacman” logo which was one of the Hawks most famous logos. The Hawks debuted these jerseys during Dominique Wilkins Rookie year and Wilkins won two Slam-Dunk Contest in these jerseys. Dominique was known as “The Human Highlight Film”, in this jersey Wilkins was a Seven-Time NBA All-Star and lead the league in scoring the 1985-86 season. Wilkins number 21 jersey is retired by Atlanta now. The Hawks only missed the playoffs three seasons in these jerseys and some consider these the best throwback jerseys in Atlanta history.
In my opinion, I would rank the black and red jersey as the Hawks best throwback jersey. These were worn by the Hawks from 1995-99. The Hawks logo was big on the front, the number was at the top left and the logo was actually scary to some people. The Hawks actually won 50 or more games twice in these jerseys and Dikembo Mutombo won back to back NBA Defensive Player of the Year awards. Steve Smith and Dikembo Mutombo were the face of the Hawks during this era of the black jerseys and Smith made his only appearance in the NBA All-Star Game in 1998.
The Hawks made the playoffs every year in these jerseys and were defeated by the Chicago Bulls, who went on to the win the NBA Finals and the Knicks another year who lost in the NBA Finals. The Hawks still wear these jerseys as throwbacks and eventually the current jersey will become a throwback. The current navy road jersey and the red ATL jersey could eventually become the Hawks best throwback jersey. They definitely should rank in the top three in Hawks history.

Fashion is popular, always has been and always will be. We’ve seen clothes come in style, leave and return, sometimes even less than a decade a later. That’s the fashion life. But, how old is too old for older men and women (especially the women) to wear a certain attire?
Recently, I was shopping with my friends and a woman (who was probably close to 50 or maybe older) was trying on an outfit at the same time as one my friends. She stared at herself for several minutes in the mirror before turning around asking for my opinion. “How does this look?” Inside I was talking to myself like Mo’Nique did in Phat Girlz (when she didn’t want to say the truth aloud). I said, “nice.” But in my head I added, “if you were celebrating your 21st birthday.” She wore daisy dukes, with fishnets and a top exposing almost all of her breast. She also had a tattoo on her cleavage. Is this appropriate? Maybe to her it is, but to others it may not be.
On a separate occasion, I was in the Kids aisle and there were lace and netted shirts for the young girls. The shirts, in my opinion are too sexy for anyone who haven’t even reached puberty yet – and even then, it’s still questionable as to whether it’s appropriate or not. The same thing with leggings. I feel like little girls shouldn’t wear them. These days, kids bodies mature a lot quicker than they did back in in the day and leggings shows it all and bars none.
I also began questioning my own appearance at one point of time. When I was 20 and a junior in college, I became a substitute teacher. I enjoyed it. I felt like I dressed appropriately until students would walk up to me and talk about they have the same outfit as I do. When this was happening, my students thought that they could have friendship with me, not only because I was young, but also because our dressing styles were very similar. As the time went by I completely changed the way I looked when going into work. I learned that students actually have more respect for you when you look like a teacher instead of their peer.
The way a person dress not only says a lot about your character, but it also plays a role in respect. For example, the woman I seen with the daisy dukes on would most likely get less respect than a woman of her same ethnicity and age with nice slacks and a blouse on. This issue is also big with celebrities who wear skimpy clothes and still dress as if they’re in their early 20s.
So, we’re back at the same question again…should certain clothes have an age stipulation? Should we dress a certain way after we hit a certain age?

2 Chainz is next up on the list of artists who have designed a shoe for the ADIDAS brand. Actually, he’s probably the only one that has legitimate reasons to do so. I mean, the man did play basketball in school. So, he does have a different perspective on what sneakers should feel like and look like.
Regardless, however, 2 Chainz is making coins as he diversifies into the sportswear industry. His “2 Good To Be T.R.U.“shoe is molded from the Top Ten Hi ADIDAS Originals. The all-black shoe accented with gold-lace tips are topped with snakeskin strips, which adds more texture to the shoe. In my opinion, this what makes the sneaker pretty dope. What do you all think?
If these are something you would wear, hopefully you’ll have an extra $130 in your wallet after Valentines Day, ’cause the shoe will go on sale Saturday, Feb. 15.
In more 2 Chainz news, as you know he kicked off his 2 G.O.O.D To Be T.R.U. Tour on February 4 in Boston, MA. G.O.O. D. Music artist, Pusha T, is also on the tour, along with Def Jam’s August Alsina and T.R.U.’s Cap 1.
According to MTV News, 2 Chainz described what this tour is about…
“The best way to describe my tour is to reference a quote from Niccolo Machiavelli, author of the The Prince, who once said ‘Everyone sees what you appear to be, few experience what you really are.’ 2 G.O.O.D. 2 Be T.R.U.,” 2 Chainz declared in a press release announcing the tour.
In case you have not seen 2 Chainz perform, word is that he does put on a good show. And with Pusha T, August, and Cap 1…this has to be an awesome tour.

History was made on Feb 9, 2014 as Full Blossom Magazine (FBM) produced the 1st exclusively Plus Size fashion show during New York Fashion Week. This event allowed women all over the world to see a fashion show, which glorified the body of the average woman. Full Blossom Magazine showcased new trends in plus size fashion from designers: Niq Nicole, Mad Couture’s Madilyn Wade, MH302 creator Marco Hall, and Juul Couture. Not only did this event show off beautiful curvy women, but the Face The Sweet Fashion Showcase also helped to promote the awareness and education of diabetes.
Founder and Executive Director of Divabetic® Max Szadek, along with Catherine Schuller of BEHIND IT Magazine and Model Maker Mentors hosted and educated the attendees about Divabectic. The motto for this non-profit organization is you get a nutritionist so you eat good, feel good and manage your diabetes. So why, not get a stylist, make-up artist or take care of your physical appearance so you look good too. “Don’t just be a Diabetic, be a Divabetic! A Diabetic with an attitude!”
Alongside the CEO of FBM, Mello Andrews, comedian/actor Michael Blackson was also in the building to show his support for cause.
Check out a few photos from the runway show:
Special thanks to Full Blossom Magazine for the invite. Also, a huge thanks to LaQuinta Munford, for covering the event on behalf of STACKS Magazine.
Solange Knowles is her own woman. Not to be defined by society, man or belief, her creativity and individualism has always intrigued us. Over the years, she’s enhanced her style and brand to become one of industry’s most self-assured artist. This is why you can’t hate on her even if you tried.
Now, she’s taking on another fashion challenge.
In 2013, she partnered up with Puma to become the Art Director and Creative Consultant for the brand. What, we assume, is her first complete project is a new line of sneakers. The “Girls of Blaze”, as it is called, is a collection of fun, bright-colored, and abstractly-designed shoes perfect for the upcoming spring/summer seasons. In a behind-the-scenes video, Solange explains how the gender lines are crossed when it pertains to sneakers and the sex appeal of wearing them.
I think women have really focused on the idea that sexiness and femininity is a state of mind, really projecting confidence throughout the voice of saying when I feel good, I look good. That can be interpreted in so many ways…but certainly a level of comfort can exist. You will never have more fun at the club when you are wearing sneakers really dancing your ass off! I’ve also noticed the gender lines have crossed so much when it comes to sneakers as well. Women are wearing men’s sneakers, and I can’t tell you how many men have asked me if the Discs from my collection will come in larger sizes so they can rock them as well!
Below are a few photos from the shoot (photographed by Alan Ferguson, Solange’s longtime boyfriend):

With New York Fashion Week around the corner, it’s important to remind everyone that there are some amazing models both on and off of the runway. For those models who glow more on camera versus on a runway, here some tips that will help you retain that shine and succeed in your modeling career. And as an added treat, we have some models that put on their best “Smize” for STACKS Magazine.
1. Get sleep - This will help prevent the unwanted bags under the eyes, as well as help give you the patience and stamina that is needed during a shoot.
2. Drink a lot of water - This alone will add greatly to the look and healthiness of your skin.
3. Practice - Spend some time in front of a mirror learning and developing a variety of expressions. Striking different poses with the same facial expression does little to enhance your portfolio; you may want to consider studying the expressions and body language of the top models in your field for examples and ideas. If you are just starting out, your photographer will be able to share ideas with you.
4. Work with a great staff - Have MUA, Hair Stylists, and a Creative Director on set to ensure a great shoot with great shots. That also goes for men models. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a little foundation on your face to cover up unwanted blemishes. A good MUA and Hair Stylists will help terminate the need for a lot of retouching.
5. Wardrobe - Make sure your clothing helps portray the concept of your shoot. Also make sure your clothing fits well and is clean and pressed.
6. Choose the perfect setting - The area and background of where you are shooting makes a huge impact on your picture. Your setting should definitely add to the concept of your photo(s) also.

Fashion designer, Marc Jacobs, will feature an unique aspect to his brand during the upcoming Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week.
News outlets are reporting that Jacobs debut a socially interactive pop-up shop, ‘Daisy Marc Jacobs Tweet Shop’. The shop will feature the Daisy fragrances, accessories, lounge, photo booth, and offer drinks to it’s customers. But, here’s the twist. The patrons will have to do a little social media work before acquiring these great giveaways.
Using the #MJDaisyChain hashtag on your Instagram and Twitter posts will be rewarded with freebies, and Marc Jacobs accessories will be given away throughout the day. It’s not yet clear how much your tweets will be worth, or whether they’ll be more valuable for the number of subsequent re-tweets you manage to generate.
Pretty dope idea!
Nicki Minaj is a boss. She’s been able to capitalize on her talents and business mind frame, which has enabled her to maximize her brand better than any other female rapper. This is what we appreciate about Nicki. Even if you don’t particularly enjoy her music, you have no choice but to respect her grind.
Last year, she announced her very own fashion line, The Nicki Minaj Collection. Geared toward the every day families, the KMART customers are snatching the garments off the shelves. Therefore, Nicki is pressing forward with her next collection.
On Wednesday, she Instagrammed a few of the new items in her Spring Collection. The 2014 designs include florals, bold block cut-outs, and bright colors.
Take a look at a few of her designs:

On January 11, creative minds who are working towards a career in fashion and entertainment filled up The Hookah Spot, in Columbia, South Carolina. The event was designed and hosted by celebrity stylist, Zoe Dupree. Attendees were given the opportunity to learn the proper ways to handle business in in the fashion industry. The Style School, also, taught ways to network and what to expect in the industry. STACKS Magazine’s South Carolina ambassador/contributor, Jeffery Young (@Kiid_Fro), was onsite to catch all the happenings.
Zoe Dupree twisted things up with a surprise photo shoot for participants who no nothing about a photograph studio. Other special guests in attendance were T. Shanell (celebrity stylist), Tyrike Britt (celebrity hair stylist), and Sergio Hudson (winner of Rihanna’s “Styled to Rock”).
Here are a few photos from the event:

Most people celebrated Christmas yesterday surrounded by family and close friends. This time of fellowship allows everyone to enjoy their blessings and give unto others. This is one reason why gifts are such a big deal at Christmas time. And who doesn’t like to receive presents?!
So…what did Santa Claus (or family) give you for Christmas this year? Hopefully, it was something you really wanted and not one of those dreadful holiday sweaters. Although clothes are a always a great gift to give, for the past few years, electronics and tech gadgets have made the top of the list.
According to the Associated Press, audio equipment topped the holiday gift list this year. They say Americans purchased more items relating to music this year than in past years. Electronics such as headphones, speakers, and other audio gear made up approximately 13 percent of the $8 billion in sales made. Headphones like Beats by Dre, SMS Audio, etc rose about 14 percent in sales. Also, sales of the wireless sound bar speakers rose about 80 percent from last year.
Analysts believes Americans want a better listening experience, which is why dollars are being spent on high-quality sound gear (i.e. ear buds). With most Americans using their iPhones, Androids, tablets and such to listen to music and videos, no one wants to rely on the crappy ear buds you normally get with the phone. It’s all about the clarity of the sound, the bass, the surround sound, and overall audio quality. This has become of great importance to American consumers.
In addition to audio gear, analyst says tablets were a big hit again this year.
Tablets are not only purchased for adults any more. We now see a trend where more and more tablets are being purchased for seniors and kids. Kids, in particular, are using tablets at ages starting around 3 years old nowadays. Companies like Samsung, are designing tablets and apps that cater to a specific audience. For children, these tablets can be navigated through much easier. The tasks of scrolling through photos, playing video, playing games, and more are easy to do. And parents are quick to purchase tablets because it has taken place of the television, which was once the best way to keep a child preoccupied.
Recently, an ABC correspondent traveled to Canal Street (in New York City) to dive into the world of counterfeit handbags. This is big business and it has changed over the years when it comes to pricing. Back in the day, a person could cop a fake Gucci handbag for about $30-$40. Nowadays, ABC says the dealers on Canal St., in particular, have raised the stakes and are now charging anywhere up to $1,000 for a bag. These high priced knock-offs are called “superfakes”.
Watch the undercover investigation below:
True enough, it is difficult at times to determine if a handbag is real or not. In order to guarantee the authentication of your next handbag, best thing to do is buy it at the actual designer store (i.e. Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Hermes, Chanel, etc).
What are your thoughts about the “superfakes”? Are the dealers charging WAY too much for the counterfeit handbags?
Sir Algernon, Manufactured Products, & Sacred Heart Collection Hits Runway @ 2014 Spring Collection Fashion Show [PHOTOS]
On December 7, Future Vision event center was the site for the 2014 Spring Collection Fashion Show. Four (4) innovative and diverse designers came together to put on a great show for fashion enthusiasts and industry insiders. One of the designers was 11-year old Imani Alsobrook, which we featured on our site earlier this month [READ HERE]. Imani’s group of models graced the runway in her one-of-a-kind designs from her Peachie Pi collection. The other three designers were much older, but debuted designs that effortlessly showed the transition from child to adult. Those three designers were Manufactured Products, Sir Algernon, and Sacred Heart Collection.
Manufactured Products is the brainchild of designer Damien Sheppard. He is a native of Ohio, but decided to bring his custom-made garments to the Atlanta area. According to the official press release, Manufactured Products is a fusion of casual and semi-formal wear with an urban flair that embodies the entire manufacturing process. The 2014 Spring Collection’s main focus are the custom jackets. The jackets contain various elements like zebra print, floral, and denim. Sleek pants are paired with each jacket for the complete look.

Sir Algernon designs shows us how far concepts can be visually materialized. His high-end couture garments have been worn and seen on some of the most highlighted runways in the business. Last year, Algernon Johnson debuted Sir Algernon at the 2013 New York Fashion Week. The signature white and black custom designs are draped with splashes of color. This design concept is just one of the reasons many of your favorite celebrities call on him. Algernon has worked with Mary Mary (Gospel artists), Momma Dee (Love and Hip Hop Atlanta), Vonnie Lopez (Gospel Artist), and more. His love of the woman’s silhouette is evident in his long gowns and satin tops.
Follow this designer at Facebook (Sir Algernon) and on Twitter/Instagram @SirAlgernon .
Sacred Heart Collection has been seen on many celebrities and in magazine editorials (i.e. “Tiny” Harris (Singer/Actress), Meagan Good (Actress), Lauren London (Actress, “The Game”), British Vogue, etc). Brandi Russell‘s flirtatious women’s clothing line is just enough to turn heads without seeming too attention-deprived. During the 2013 New York Fashion Week, Brandi debuted three new designs: Anabelle, Claire, and Madysen. These designs were showcased at this event garnering rave reviews.

One thing we like to bring awareness to are young entrepreneurs who are setting the example. And at just 11 year old, Imani Alsobrook is paving her own way into fashion.
Last Saturday, Imani was the youngest person to debut her couture fashion line at the Fall Into Spring Fashion Show. The show introduced the 2014 Spring Collections of four diverse fashion designers. Imani’s Peachie Pi clothing line featured garments layered in bright bold colors and animal prints. Peachie Pi, is known to cater to 4-17 year old girls, also features animal prints which give young fashionistas a more mature-but-kind friendly look.
According to the Peachie Pie website, the clothing line was owned and operated by Imani and her mother, Monica. Here’s a little background information on the two:
Imani Alsobrook is a budding fashion designer/entrepreneur who loves conceptualizing and designing apparel for girls and teens. At the young age of 11, Imani is proud to play a major role in turning an “idea” into a reality. Be on the lookout for Imani’s designs to be displayed and modeled at runway shows throughout Atlanta in 2013.
Monica Alsobrook is a proud wife, mom of three beautiful children, entrepreneur and wearer of many “hats”. However, when it comes to Peachie Pi, Monica is 100% focused on supporting Imani’s passion for fashion and design.
There’s many more great things in store for Imani and the Peachie Pie clothing line. This was evident during the Fall Into Spring fashion show. Take a look at a few of Imani’s designs that hit the runway:

Corporations and brands have been known to use third party firms to collect consumer data. But, those days are soon long gone.
According to a recent video on WSJ.com, there’s a new app that will allow consumers to rate products directly through their iPhone or Android. The app is called Rewardable. It is a data collection app that helps brands determine the marketing strength of their products. Most third party consumer survey companies are known to pay individuals $25 to $200 to participate. Now, through the Rewardable app, people can earn money on the spot, while shopping in their favorite store.
The money earned goes directly into your PayPal account. This totally cut out the middle man.
To learn more about the app, watch the video below:
Okay so… most of us heard the news that ADIDAS has offered Kanye West a deal worth $10 million. This amount of money could be considered small change to Kanye. But, unlike his former deal with NIKE, ADIDAS is offering royalties that will allow West to secure his child’s future and generations after.
His strong desire to create clothing, shoes, etc has caused many people to label him as being “crazy”. Kanye’s main goal is to use his relevancy to gain the respect and opportunities from the fashion industry. After two failed attempts with NIKE and Louis Vutton, ADIDAS has heard his cry and will partner up with the rapper/producer/designer on several new projects.
ADIDAS released the following statement:
“For 2014, we welcome to the adidas family one of the most influential cultural icons of this generation, Kanye West. Well known for breaking boundaries across music, film and design and partnering with our history in street wear culture and leading innovations in sport, we look forward to creating a new chapter. Details to follow.”
For the last several weeks, West has been on a radio promo tour that has fueled a lot of emotion. His most talked about radio interview is the one with Sway (“Sway In The Morning” Show) where he allowed his frustration to cause a little rift between them. From watching the video it is clear that West had a lot on his mind and was reaching his breaking point. All he want to crack open the hardened eggshell of which is the fashion industry. Sadly, the old money that runs the major fashion houses is making it difficult for him to break-in.
Sway didn’t have the answers nor does anybody else let Kanye tell it. But, one question that has been on my mind is… why doesn’t he invest his own money into building his own factory??
Not having access to these factories, is one of Kanye’s biggest gripes. I’m sure if he doesn’t have enough money to build one on his own, there’s a great possibility that investors would come in to take up the slack. Take Richard Branson for example. He’s always stepping out there and building his own (like the Virgin Galactic Spaceflight). Branson is a billionaire, however, he’s a creative just like Kanye. His ideas go beyond the average thought process. He’s innovative and he doesn’t allow anyone to stop him from accomplishing a goal.
Kanye West has the ability to do that as well. He can open up his own factory. He can manufacture his own products. Why he doesn’t understand that…I’m not sure. Yes, he’s trying to jump into the high-fashion industry quickly. This is why others believe that he hasn’t crawled enough to be expecting opportunities to be handed to him. One day he has to realize that (although he may be at the top of the music business), he’s at the bottom of the totem pole in fashion. It will some time for him to crack open those doors. However, the best way to combat the opposition is to take matters into your own hands.
Kanye…just build your own factory!

Designers and product merchandisers beware!!! Kanye West is on a rampage and it doesn’t look as if he’s going to stop any time soon.
As we’ve seen and heard, West has been on this anti-fashion industry rant lately. He’s had quite a few choice words for the international fashion community (i.e. Louis Vutton) not allowing him and his design team become apart of their world. Well, he has know took a jab at a popular merchandise e-commerce CEO and his website, Zappos.com.
During a podcast with novelist Bret Easton Ellis, West was captured saying, “I got into this giant argument with the head of Zappos that he’s trying to tell me what I need to focus on. Meanwhile, he sells all this sh-t product to everybody, his whole thing is based off of selling sh-t product.”
Zappo’s CEO Tony Hseih didn’t appreciate West’s claim. So without saying alot, Hseih created a product aiming at the Chicago rapper.
The “Sh-t Product” is being sold online on Zappos.com for $100,000. According to the item information outlined on the website, this may be the perfect jab back at West.
Interested in buying sh-t product? You’ve come to the right place! Here at Zappos.com, we happily sell sh-t products to everybody! This is the throne, everyone has been watching. Whether you’re #1 or #2, your clique will show no mercy, even in Paris.
- The perfect gift for the man that has everything
- Requires lots of “focus” for most productive use.
- Considered a “safety zone” when in arguments.
- Makes giant arguments seem much smaller.
- Caution: Do not place our Sh-t product near any fans.
- Avoid storms.
LOL! This is hilarious.
But, I do wonder if all of this ranting Kanye is doing is just a publicity stunt. I mean…his Yeezus tour is going on now and what better way to help sell out shows. As long as you keep your name in the news, you keep the attention on you..right???
Photo Recap: ATL #WalmartOnCascade Treat Customers to Beauty & Fashion Showcase, hosted by Cynthia Bailey & Middleman Fresh
This past Saturday, Walmart continued its celebration of their recent opening in southwest Atlanta. Located off Cascade Road, the superstore hosted the Atlanta Beauty & Fashion Show which showcased trendy-yet-affordable fashion and beauty products sold in Walmart. The event allowed customers the chance to see selected merchandise be modeled during an exclusive runway show. The celebrity host for the occasion was none other than “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, Cynthia Bailey. In addition, celebrity wardrobe stylist , Robert “Middleman Fresh” Flood co-hosted the event and used his expertise to style the models in Walmart’s fly fall fashions.
Cynthia Bailey and Middleman Fresh are no strangers to the beauty and fashion industries. Middleman is a 20-year styling expert whose work has been seen on numerous runways. Also, his work has been showcased on Style Network’s “Big Rich Atlanta”, BET, and on the Soul Train Awards. After spending many years gracing national and international runways as a supermodel, Cynthia Bailey traded the runway for television and has been a fixture on Bravo TV’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” for several seasons now. She’s also the founder and owner of The Bailey Agency School of Fashion and co-author of a new book “Carry-On Baggage: Our Non-Stop Flight”.
The Atlanta Beauty & Fashion Show was a great event for the community. While customers were treated to Walmart’s new fall trends, surrounding beauty stations were available for people to get make-up consultations and free giveaways. Local Atlanta radio station V-103FM was also on the scene to capture live on-air moments from the event.

Well, after long consideration by Shawn “Jay Z” Carter, the entertainment mogul has decided to continue on with the launch of his Barney’s SCC Collection.
The anticipated collection (and partnership between Barney’s and Jay Z) was met with huge criticism after two racial profiling incidents occurred at the high-end luxury department store. The cases of Trayon Christian and Kayla Phillips sparked outrage in the urban community and weighed heavily on the minds of hip hop enthusiasts.
Many hip hop fanatics believed as an African-American and individual who was raised with humble beginnings, Jay Z should empathize with both victims and stand up for change. However, to change racial profiling issues at Barney’s, the first step would be for Jay to remove his collection and end his relationship with Barney’s.
But, of course, Jay Z is not the type to make any rush decisions. According to an official statement posted on his Life + Times website, Mr. Carter explains why he’s moving forward with the collection at Barney’s and his plans to evoke some changes with the treatment of its minority customers.
Read Jay-Z’s official statement below:
In the past several weeks two separate investigations were launched as a result of the wrongful detention of Trayon Christian and Kayla Phillips. My team has been privy to the status of the Barneys third party consultant investigation. In continuing our research, we also contacted the New York State Attorney General’s office for the status of their investigation into both Barneys and Macy’s. Those findings are not yet available.
While I await the findings of the Attorney General’s Office, I have agreed to move forward with the launch of BNY SCC collection under the condition that I have a leadership role and seat on a council specifically convened to deal with the issue of racial profiling. I am in a unique position to use my voice to affect change to this disturbing issue. The easy position would have been to walk away and leave policy making to others hoping that someone addresses the problem. I will not leave the outcome to others. I will take this into my own hands with full power to recommend, review and revise policies and guidelines moving forward. I am choosing to take this head on.
As I previously stated, the collaboration with Barneys has always been about giving and The Shawn Carter Foundation. From this collection, the Foundation will receive not only 25% of sales, it will now receive the additional 75% of Barneys’ sales, totalling 100% of all sales from BNY SCC. Along with 100% of sales from the collaboration, the Foundation will receive an additional 10% of all retail sales from Barneys New York stores nationwide and Barneys.com on November 20th. – Shawn “JAY Z” Carter
Jay Z’s SCC Collection will go on-sale at Barney’s on November, 20th.

Since many of us weren’t there to participate in the festivities, here are few of the red carpet looks for the night:
If you are a Disney fan, you may get a kick out of Forever 21′s new fashion collection. The new limited-edition “Mickey Mouse” collection is inspired by the vintage version of the iconic mouse and the 1980′s send of bold fashion statements. Jasmine Sanders, model and fashion maven, brought the collection to life for Disney and Forever 21. The Mickey & Co. collection features exuberant artwork and bold pops of color within in each accessory and clothing garment. Of the 46 pieces contained in the collection, several standout pieces includes a reversible pop-over sweatshirt, over-sized tee with rolled and tacked sleeves, screened denim jacket, and a denim on denim with a two-pocket chambry shirt.
“We are excited to re-introduce this retro streetwise-style into our Forever 21 stores with Mickey Mouse, a character that has influenced pop culture worldwide,” said Betsy Zanjani, Forever 21 senior vice president of product design. “Forever 21 selected artwork from the Disney archives that allowed us to remain true to the spirit of the original Mickey & Co. label, and create a collection that exudes fun.”
In conjunction with the collection, fashionista’s can enter two contests for a chance to win great prizes.
Two social media contests will be held in conjunction with the launch of the collection. Beginning November 7, fans can participate in the ultimate Hidden Mickey Challenge to locate Hidden Mickey Mouse designs across Forever 21’s social platforms. Following the launch, the #ThrowBackMickey Instagram Challenge will ask fans to upload a nostalgic photo of their favorite Mickey & Co. brand memory with at least one of the characters featured in the collection. Forever 21’s Facebook fans will be able to vote for the three grand prize winners who will receive awesome Mickey-themed swag!

Victoria Secret revealed a bra that many would gasp after finding out how much it cost. VS stepped it up a notch with their new Royal Fantasy Bra. According to their website…
“…designed exclusively for Victoria’s Secret by world-renowned jeweler Mouawad. The one-of-a-kind Dream Angels Demi Bra and matching belt will be worn on the runway by Candice Swanepoel in homage to Victoria’s Secret heritage. The set is adorned with over 4,200 rubies, blue and yellow sapphires and diamonds handset in 18-karat gold, and its crowning glory is the bra’s 52-carat pear-shaped ruby drop centerpiece.”
If you or your man got a cool $10 million laying around and want to spend it on an under-garment, then go check out Victoria Secret. If not, you can settle with seeing it strut down the runway at the 2013 VS Fashion Show on CBS, December 10 at 10/9C or via their Dreams & Fantasies catalogue.
Just when you think you’ve seen it all…
L’Oreal Paris, a leader in beauty products, has positioned it’s first make-up vending machine in New York City. The machine is located at the Bryant Park subway hub and readily accessible to any person who may need a few beauty products. The pop-up is called the “L’Oreal Paris Intelligent Color Experience” and is the first ever vending machine to use cameras and sensors to help suggest the right colors for you. When you step up to one of the vending machines, look into the mirror and camera. Instantly, the machines intelligence will detect the colors you are currently wearing and ask if you would prefer to stick with that color scheme. If so, products sold in the machine will be offered to you for purchasing.
Products can be purchased on the spot with a credit card. Also, you have the option to send L’Oreal’s product suggestions to you via email.
If you are in the New York area, you have until December 30, 2013 to go and try the experience out for yourself.
Ladies, what do you think? Would you buy make-up out of a vending machine?
Personally, the concerns I would have are:
1) will it be cheaper to buy in-store than at the vending machine?
2) is there a mark-up on price because of the “intelligence” aspect of this high-tech equipment?
3) are the products sold being monitored due to weather conditions? i wouldn’t want to purchase some lipstick that is frozen solid because of New York’s cold climate.
4) will persons of color be able to find products/colors suitable for their skin complexion in these vending machines?
I’m sure L’Oreal Paris thought of most of these things during pre-launch stages. But if not, these are some great questions to consider. However, there’s one great thing about this experience is that it makes it very convenient for today’s woman-on-the-go. Sometimes you can’t find the time to go to Walgreen’s and replace your mascara or foundation. So, L’Oreal definitely solved an issue of “time” with this idea.

Well, the controversial racial profiling incidents doesn’t seem to fade Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter. He’s decided to move forward with his launch of exclusive collectors items at Barneys.
Despite the accusations made by two New Yorkers and authorities investigation against Barneys New York, Jay-Z is sticking to his end of the agreement to sale his ‘A New York Holiday’ collection at the high-end luxury store. The holiday collection will include several items and will range from approximately $30 up to $40,000. But, Hov’s prize possession will probably be the release of his first ever mens fragrance.
The ‘GOLD’ perfume will come in a white bottle with a gold cap. The scent is a mixture of white cardamom, ginger, grapefruit, blueberry, and subtle hints of bourbon vanilla, patchouli, and vetiver. GOLD will cost $30 (30 ml), $55 (50 ml), and $70 (90 ml). As do with other celebrity and well-known fragrances, hopefully, Jay-Z’s GOLD will offer holiday gift packs as well.
GOLD will make its debut in Barneys on November 20th. The fragrance will make its appearance at several other department stores on November 29th. International consumers will have to wait until 2014.
When Justin Timberlake sings, people tend to listen. His critically acclaimed hit single, “Suit & Tie” which released in the early part of this year, was an ode to the almost super human nature of wearing the ensemble many see as the ultimate symbol of power (and sexy). The song centered on his desire to seduce his lady, while being sure to give credence to the power of his, “Suit & Tie.” Again, few things represent, “ready for business” more than a Suit and Tie, whatever “business” that may consist of. It’s the quintessential attire for the serious and invested. Personal style can largely differ from man to man (and woman), with age, education, and profession all playing a significant role in the presentation of men worldwide. Yet it is the suit and tie that most would agree serves the great unifier. Even today’s rapper is wise to the power of a well-tailored suit and tie. It’s almost as common to see your TI’s and Jeezy’s in 3 piece slim cut business suits, as readily as you’d see them in a white tee, camo shorts and J’s.
Suit and ties serve a number of purposes. They can help to bolster our confidence, enhance our style and look, and most importantly, it says to people, “I mean business.” Whether you’re conducting million dollar deals on a regular basis, you’re trying to make a stellar first impression on a date, or you’re finally ready for the next stage in your career and want to show your employer you’re ready for the big leagues, the suit and tie is a pivotal part of the equation. As with anything else, there will always be a faction of people who refuse to get with the times or the policies of perceived social (business) etiquette. There are plenty of men who think wearing a suit, God forbid a tie, is somehow a relinquishing of his individuality or worse, his freedom. The anti-conformist is generally how they look at themselves. Those of us who are avid suit wearers know it’s quite the opposite. The relaxed urban look may be acceptable on a Saturday afternoon at a backyard BBQ, but it is becoming less acceptable when the sunsets and the evening emerges as a platform of opportunity. A suit and tie reflect that a person is serious about whatever it is they’re involved with, big or small and should be taken just a little bit more seriously. Sure, the character and substance of a man is ultimately most important, but it is the outward presentation that often entices people to take the time to delve deeper.
All men should own a suit and tie. Starting with a solid color (preferably blue or black) for starters is most advisable. From Blue-collar worker to the Wall Street executive, having a (well tailored) suit and tie means you’re prepared for opportunity if and when it arises. For those whose jobs and lifestyles do not require them (at present) it is still necessary to make the investment. Perhaps there’s an opportunity that arises last minute and it requires professional attire (i.e. interview, etc.), if you only have a pair of slacks and a dress shirt from high school, chances are you’ll miss out. Famed French chemist Louis Pasteur said it best, “chance favors the prepared mind.” Preparedness is essential in business and in life. So heed the advice and invest. You don’t have to spend several thousand dollars on a Tom Ford custom, but you can go to your local department or specialty stores (Jos A. Bank, Bloomingdales) and come out looking like a mogul in the making for only a few hundred dollars. When opportunity knocks, you’ll be able to say confidently, “I’ve got my suit & tie, so come on in.”

The Gourmet Footwear’s Fall 2013 Croc Pack is now released to the masses. The Croc Pack was derived from a sit-down meeting between Founder, Greg Lucci, and platinum hip hop recording artist and CEO of CTE World, Jeezy. The fall lookbook includes the Cinque 2 LXL and 35 Lite MP, both made from imported, Italian crocodile.
The concept for the lookbook took on an organic transparency. Both Lucci and Jeezy wanted to capture the true feeling of an environment not forced, which is why the photos throughout the lookbook were taken during a dinner meeting at one of Atlanta’s top Italian restaurants (owned by chef GIO).
“When we come to Atlanta to collaborate with Jeezy the first thing we do is call GIO and have the private table in the back of his restaurant set up. It’s during these dinners that we tend come up with our best creative ideas. We’re not focused 100 on business. We’re rapping about family and the neighborhoods where we grew up. It’s those discussions that inspire us and allow us to visualize where we want to take our collaborative efforts.” – Greg Lucci, Founder of Gourmet.
The idea for the Croc Pack culminated after the initial partnership between Jeezy and Gourmet. The shoes in this special collection were originally chosen by Jeezy in June 2013. At the time, the shoes were only samples and not the final product. Once the final production of the shoes were available, Jeezy and Gourmet decided on these two favorites as the centerpieces for the Fall 2013 Croc Pack.
To see the Croc Pack lookbook, click HERE.
Gourmet’s slogan for the Fall 2013 line is “Masters of Material,” an ideology derived from the wide range of fabrications sourced from all over the world that provide depth and a unique look to its shoes. In addition to the Italian crocodile, other materials used include: imported, Italian snake skin; butter-soft, water resistant wolverine suede; imported, Japanese ultra-suede by Toray; and cork printed leather.

Pharrell Williams, producer extradonairre and Billionaire Boys Club visionary, has partnered up with a French sportswear company to create his own line of sunglasses. The new Moncler Lunette Collection showcases Pharrell’s wide imagination and knack for creativity. The sunglasses are made of titanium and looks very futuristic. It will take an eccentric, fashion-driven person to rock them. But giving that the line is based out of Paris, France (the fashion mecca of the world), it shouldn’t be difficult to find individuals who don’t mind stepping outside the box. However, American’s may be a hard sell.
As explained on the Moncler website, the sunglasses are a “classic taste and avant-garde awareness. The past and future of sunglasses with a silhouette that leaves its mark. Discover the Moncler Lunettes featuring Pharrell Williams Collection.”
The sunglasses will come in several colors: black, green, blue, red, and gold. But, it’s the square-shaped lenses that makes the collection look out of this world.
Recently, Pharrell attended the official launch party during Paris Fashion Week. Here are a few photos from the event:
“This is a collaboration and if anything, I feel like Moncler is endorsing me,” P says of his collection. “The world is about to see itself through the lenses of Moncler and Pharrell Williams.”

If “Wild’N Out” and “America’s Got Talent” isn’t enough, multi-faceted entertainer Nick Cannon has now ventured into new territory.

In a partnership with Macy’s department store, Cannon has launched his own line of silk ties. The new collection will include 25 different styles, which will offer the fashionisto’s various textures, prints, and lively colors.

I am also extremely grateful to have the opportunity to work with such a respected name in fashion such as Macy’s and hope to expand my line offerings with them in the future.”

Last night, all of Hollywood came out in style to the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards. This year marked the 65th season of the prestigious awards ceremony. With each year, more and more attention is paid to the infamous red carpet. And well this year…things weren’t any different.
Our favorite “Scandal” sister, Kerry Washington, hit the red carpet in a elegant Marchesa free flowing chiffon gown. The delicate flower details really made Kerry look very angelic and light (which is a stark contrast to most fabrics we normally see walking on the red carpet). Another woman who made a nice red carpet debut is former 106th & Park host Rocsi Diaz.
Not sure who the designer is at this time, but Rocsi rocked the hell out of that electric blue dress. Werk girl!
More of our female celebrity favorites also brought the fabulousness to the carpet: Heidi Klum, Tina Fey, Carrie Underwood , and Shawn Robinson. Check out what these ladies strutted their stuff in last night:
