Maison Kitsune Goes For New Preppy, French Style

Share Button

After its very first New York Fashion week appearance, designer label Maison Kitsune has presented us with a first glance at its 2015 spring and summer clothing line.  The women’s clothing line has a fresh, new feel to it in comparison to past collections showcased on their website.  By Spring 2015 we will see this brand new line and it will be certain to amaze all those who see it.

The Maison Kitsune Spring/Summer 2015 clothing line, called Effortlessly French has a very prep-school look.  Varsity-style jackets, penny loafers, and collard shirts and dresses are most prominent throughout the fashion line.  It is certainly a nice change from the short-shorts and crop tops that have taken over clothing stores over the past few years.

What is Maison Kitsune, you ask?  It is the brainchild of former Daft Punk manager, Gildas Loaëc, and architect Masaya Kuroki.  There are three flagship stores in some of the largest fashion hubs in the world: New York City, Paris, and Tokyo.

“Kitsuné is a unique concept of trendy and modern luxury intermingling fashion and music. We have been known for the quality of our choices for more than 10 years now” said Gildas Loaëc about the characteristics of their lines.

Past collections have a more grown-up look with blazers, chiffon blouses, and a-line skirts.  Fans of the collections can expect a more 1950’s-style, clean-cut, high school varsity look come springtime 2015.  There are many small aspects of prep school that make the collection so easy to like.

According to an article in the Kistune Journal, “Creative duo and founders Gildas Loaec & Masaya Kuroki, have conceived a collection immersed in a new concept based on the French women’s ability to choose and balance well-made clothes resulting in a thoughtful and personalised ensemble.”

Be sure to check this newly-announced fashion line soon as possible in order to be one of the first to get a glimpse.

Cobra Starship Is Back In Full Force

Ah, ThrowBack Thursday; the phrase has become a routine part of our week.  I’m sure we have all posted a #tbt on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.  Well, Cobra Starship’s latest music video for their new single, Never Been In Love has all the qualifications of a #tbt.  While the song is totally fresh and brand new, the music video is nothing less than reminiscent of the late-’80s to early-’90s.

Cobra Starship collaborated in the studio with Icona Pop and then with Ellen von Unwerth to shoot the music video.  The video was filmed in Sweden and goes along perfectly with the carefree sound of the song.  If von Unwerth’s work looks familiar, there is a strong chance you have seen her vast portfolio of artists such as Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Rihanna, and many more.

If you are like me and still enjoy listening to hit pop songs of the early-’90s, you will absolutely regret not listening to Never Been In Love.  And the music video? It’s a perfect homage to the song itself.  While the title of the song may make it sound like another corny love song, rest assured it is far from that.  Before long it will be one of the catchiest tunes of the year.

MTV premiered the video and after just five days it has more than 113,000 views on YouTube.  Congratulations, Cobra Starship! Your hard work is certainly paying off.

“I was in alternative schooling and I was able to move at my own pace and take whatever classes that I wanted, whenever I wanted. The curriculum that I chose was at an extremely fast rate. I actually finished school in the fall and had to wait an entire four or five months just so I could actually graduate with my class. I just took college courses after that.” – Buzzfeed

Drizzy, our Drizzy…. What will we do with our dear Drizzy Drake? It seems the Toronto rapper can’t catch a break. Be it the Hosuton stripper that is mad she has been phased out of his roster making outlandish claims of him sending “goons” to her house looking for her or fellow YMCMB MC Tyga pulling his “G” card and hitting him with the “He ain’t real YALL!”. Drake literally just can’t seem to catch a break. For goodness sakes he just wants to lie in a kings size bed getting good….. well you know the rest.

Before I sat down to write this “The Walking Dead” Season Five Episode One review I re-watched the entire episode on my DVR. Now that I am actually writing, I am watching it for a third time. BTW, I cracked open the good old legal pad and pen for this recap because its just that crucial. Yes, it was just that f*cking EPIC people. So much so that the show broke a television viewing record with 17.3 million viewers between the ages of 18-49. WHAT?!? That is major with a capital MA! Enough with my Walking Dead propaganda. (maybe that wasn’t the best word to roll with, but imma roll with it, lol) Here are the 6 Reasons The Walking Dead Season 5 Premiere was Beyond Epic.

Jagged Edge: breaking hearts all over again

IMG_0972.JPGRemember the award-winning R&B group, Jagged Edge, from the late-’90s and early-’00s? Under the leadership of producer Jermaine Dupri, the group, which rolled out such hits as Let’s Get Married and Where the Party At, plans to release their 8th studio album on October 27. We were fortunate enough to attend the album-listening party Sunday in Atlanta, Georgia. Group members Brandon Casey, Brian Casey, Kyle Norman, and Richard Wingo hosted the party. For about an hour attendees were immersed in the sounds of their newest album, J.E. Heartbreak II.  The album overall maintained the same R&B feel as J.E. Heartbreak (2000), their second and biggest-selling album to date. Don’t let that fool you, though, because there are a couple of tracks in which the group went with a completely different sound. If you’re nostalgic for the R&B sounds of the early-’00s, be sure to pick up J.E. Heartbreak II on October 27. If you’re super anxious to make sure you receive the album, you can place your preorder here.
