  2. At the beginning of this month, YoungBoy Never Broke Again -- the artist formerly known as NBA Youngboy -- made an impact by dropping his anticipated first post-prison project. Known as A.I. Youngboy, the tape was a full-length effort comprised of 15 new records; the list of guest contributors was kept lean, with Yo Gotti and Peewee Longway included as the only featured artists. YoungBoy originally supported the project by cooking up a video for A.I. Youngboy cut "No Smoke," and now he's back with a new visual for another one of the tape's standout tracks. Placing the focus on one of the project's pair of collaborative songs, the fast-rising Louisiana up-and-comer reconnects with Peewee Longway for the official clip for "Wat Chu Gone Do." Considering Peewee Longway's spot at the top of the trap-rap food chain, it makes sense that YounGboy serves up something for the streets by supporting his track with the aforementioned ATLien with a special visual. Along with this new release, Peewee Longway also dropped a new project of his own last week. You can check out the video for YoungBoy Never Broke Again and Peewee Longway's "Wat Chu Gone Do" collaboration above. Read more at Hypebeast.com View the full article

A couple months after the June showcase of the world-renowned brand's 2018 pre-spring offerings, Givenchy has revealed plans for a Japan pop-up shop to commemorate and market its new "Essentials" capsule. Set to take place -- for a limited time -- exclusively at the luxury label's Isetan Shinjuku and Hankyu Umida stores, the two new Givenchy pop-up locales will offer an array of selections from the "Essentials" fall collection. The retail event will go down at the beginning of next month, and you can learn more about the September festivities here. Earlier this month, Givenchy was recognized as one of the fashion world's "hottest brands." In recent months, the brand has also brought back its famed "shark motif" and expanded its foray into formalwear with a special 2017 fall tuxedo capsule collection. For 2017, Givenchy also plans to make its mark on children's clothing. Click here to view full gallery at Hypebeast.com View the full article

  8. Art has a way of resurfacing in the most unpredictable occasions. For example, Banksy's decades-old stencil artwork of a cop snorting coke—that was thought to have been lost forever—was discovered by two business owners in England this past weekend. Jeff Koons' Balloon Dog (Orange) sculpture that was sold to an anonymous telephone bidder for $58.4 million at Christie's made its way to a JAY-Z performance this Sunday night. Not to mention, intimate Polaroid photos of Madonna that were taken before her debut album are now for sale at a bookstore in Manhattan. Take a look at this week's art roundup below and let us know your thoughts. Banksy’s Long-Lost Snorting Copper Artwork Has Been Rediscovered 4chan Banksy's iconic Snorting Copper stencil mural has finally been found after ten years. The artwork—which is located in East London's Shoreditch district—"was vandalized, spray-jetted by the local council, boarded up and painted over," as per Dazed. The piece portrays a police officer on his knees while snorting a line of cocaine. Locals Jonathan Ellis and David Kyte recently discovered the mural on an abandoned site they purchased. The pair is planning to restore and return the piece to its original location for public viewing sometime in October. The artwork has been valued at approximately $1,612,262 USD.

  10. Los Angeles creative mastermind, designer and overall jack of all trades Brendan Fowler sits down with SSENSE to break down his DIY approach, the Election Reform! movement he birthed and more. Having made waves earlier this year with his collaborative efforts alongside New York City's Eckhaus Latta and a joint collection with Off-White, Fowler has plenty to talk about for his exchange with Arthur Bray. "Whether that's indie rock, backpack hip-hop, or experimental noise, kids are having subcultural experiences and freaking out about making music and connecting with other kids," Fowler explains, explaining what motivates today's youth and this generation's DIY ethos. "Instead of releasing a record, they'll upload on SoundCloud and create merchandise. This has given DIY culture a new spirit." Nearly 40-years-old, Fowler has had plenty of experience in all disciplines of art. From music to fashion, he's always been on the experimental cutting edge of contemporary trends and forces. "Youth culture is all Cali and I know. We're forever stuck in the age that we were when we got psyched on doing things creatively." Head on over to SSENSE to read the interview in its entirety. For more, check out our recent behind-the-scenes look at Fowler and and Cali Thornhill DeWitt's Some Ware showcase in Paris. Click here to view full gallery at Hypebeast.com View the full article

  12. Following its digital debut in the Need For Speed Payback video game, BMW has finally unveiled its 2018 M5 to the world, the first to feature four wheel drive. The model resembles the normal 5 Series only with a larger grille, a rear valance with diffuser, and the M-series' trademark fender vents. In the interior you will find heated sports seats and bright red buttons on the wheel for "M" driving mode presets. The 2018 M5 features a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 like the last model, but with 600 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque, a 40-horsepower and 53-pound increase. Peak power lasts from 5,700 to 6,600 rpm, and peak torque sticks around from 1,800 until 5,700 rpm, all going through an 8-speed automatic to the Bimmer's all-wheel drive system. The vehicle can function in three modes, one of which is purely rear-drive in which stability control is shut off. This will engage a fully rear-wheel drive mode for purists of the M badge's motorsport heritage. The all-wheel system allows the vehicle to reach 60 mph in 3.2 seconds, top speed 155, and provides more traction and control by default. When the M Driver's Package is installed it can reach speeds of up to 189 mph. There are also revamped suspension, double-wishbone front setup, anti-roll bars, and chassis bracing that have been added. In addition, the M5 has 19-inch wheels at each corner, with 275-mm tires at the front, and 285-mm tires at the back. The First Edition M5s will have a 50-car limited run in the U.S. with no pricing details yet disclosed. Expect the 2018 BMW M5 spring of 2018.

With just a few days to go until Blue Chips 7000 officially hits retailers and streaming services alike, today's drop might end up becoming the project's biggest single yet. Courtesy of Apple Music and Spotify, Action Bronson's new collaboration with Rick Ross is available for listening below.

  23. In streetwear’s infancy, only a few web stores were deemed worthy of carrying the most sought after brands -- particularly hyped Japanese labels you couldn’t just order anywhere, like BAPE, visvim, NEIGHBORHOOD, WTAPS and UNDERCOVER. If you were savvy and in the know, an option was to go through proxy services to access Japanese sites like RAKUTEN and ZOZOTOWN to get the latest goods from these hard-to-come-by brands. In addition to utilizing proxies, however, a more practical way was to order through a few trailblazing sites -- HAVEN, Union, and Firmament (all in our definitive list). Not only are they renowned for carrying core streetwear brands, but they’ve also contributed plenty to the advancement of street culture through special collaborations, editorials and events that have brought this niche community closer together. You can say these shops influenced the newer crop of online retailers to go beyond just simply stocking product. In and around 2006, American streetwear brands were popping up left and right. Some say it was the beginning of the end for streetwear. The boom of sites like Karmaloop, PLNDR, Digital Gravel and even JackThreads all played a collective role in saturating the market. Since then, a great number of streetwear start-ups have folded and these aforementioned shopping sites have either ceased to exist or have rebranded after facing bankruptcy. It was indeed a dark chapter in street fashion but the industry learned a lot of worthwhile lessons. As the evolution of streetwear continued, the genre suddenly found itself in the luxury fashion conversation. It’s no longer rare for both independent and bigger online shops like Barneys New York, MR. PORTER, or even Browns Fashion to carry legacy streetwear brands, power luxury names, timeless Japanese brands, and the quality up-and-comers. For these “bigger” online stores, however, they’re not particularly in-tune with street culture the same way other independent shops are. Hence, some of the truest fans of streetwear will only shop at stores that offer an astute curation of brands, while maintaining a relatable cool identity. Looking at old and new establishments, HYPEBEAST has picked the 25 best sites, in no particular order, for shopping quality streetwear online. To stay true to the genre, we’ve solely focused on the names that have helped progress street fashion and culture. These are the web destinations that continue to be trusted for their superior service, offer a well thought-out roster of labels, and innovate to provide costumers new ways to shop streetwear on the web. 1. END END x mastermind JAPAN Lookbook. END END is renowned for having one of the best selections of brands online.

For dedicated streetwear aficionados, Union Los Angeles is usually the first name mentioned when speaking about prime product purveyors.

Website: www.store.unionlosangeles.com 3. Slam Jam Socialism Slam Jam x Stussy 2015 Spring/Summer Lookbook.

While Firmament now carries brands like Stone Island, Bianca Chandon and UNDERCOVER, it's worth noting that the stockist was one of the few other places out there that carried Supreme. Website: www.firmamentberlin.com 11. KITH KITH x Cap'n Crunch Lookbook. KITH Not much more can be said about KITH that the streetwear masses don’t already know. Founder Ronnie Fieg is perhaps considered the king of collaborations and along with a physical space and website, he rules a kingdom of brands that is well-known throughout street fashion.

Website: www.cncpts.com 16. Idol Brooklyn Idol Brooklyn 2016 Raf Simons Fall/Winter Editorial. Idol Brooklyn When it comes down to brass tacks, Idol Brooklyn knows conceptual brands.

  25. Apple garners a large following for its ultra sleek designs, but the tech giant drives just as much traffic with its leaks and rumors. Whether these leaks are actual slip-ups or intentional marketing schemes, Apple rumors have been part of the industry giant's narrative before the Internet Age gave way to blogs and social media outlets. Recently, a video of vintage news footage shows that dedicated Apple-related news outlets have been in existence for decades. The clip, which originally aired in February of 1988, shows late computing industry media pioneer David Bunnell's weekly print news series Macintosh Today, which covered Apple's latest developments. In this episode, the news publication had gotten its hands on a 160-page confidential Apple document on the Macintosh Portable (Apple's first mobile computer) before its official announcement in November of that year. At one instance, the anchors question if the leak was, in fact, a promotional ploy by Apple. Make sure to share your thoughts in the comments below. If you're looking for some actual Apple rumors, the iPhone 8's wireless charger is reportedly going to be sold separately. Read more at Hypebeast.com View the full article
  26. Excitement over Off-White™'s 10-shoe collaboration with Nike has been building since the wide-ranging collection was little more than a rumor. Over that time, we've seen collaborative sneakers such as the Air Jordan 1, the Air Max 90 and the VaporMax. Now, images of every piece in the collection has been revealed, which also includes Air Max 97s, Blazers, and Converse's Chuck Taylor All-Star As well as unveiling every piece of the collection Virgil Abloh sat down with Nike's Vice President of Footwear Andy Cain and the Business of Fashion to shed some more light on the much hyped collection. As well as featuring some illuminating insights from Virgil, the interview also included official confirmation of the collaboration's release date, with a series of pre-releases at NikeLab locations to tie in with corresponding fashion weeks. So the will be pre-released at NikeLab New York between September 9-13, in London from September 18-22, Milan September 21-25 and Paris from September 26-30. To coincide with the NYC launch of the project, Nike has also announced the launch of Off Campus, which the brand describes as "a destination for the advancement of sport, design and innovation" and will be held on Wall Street from September 6 to September 8. Read some key quotes from Virgil as he discusses the collection, titled "The Ten: Icons Reconstructed by Virgil Abloh," below. On the projects: "I always like a challenge. The idea of ‘The Ten’ is Nike going into its history and asking a designer such as myself to tell a story by highlighting a design detail and innovation within [each of the] ten models. What’s interesting is the scope of the project. It’s a hallmark, a very important idea of post-modern culture, innovation and athletic performance all intertwined into one." On the future of streetwear: "The future of streetwear is that it should no longer serve itself. This project is truly a democracy of how design explores the world. I’m interested in how the kid that’s standing outside his or her local Foot Locker or Nike Town buying Jordans and taking my ideas gets inspired and takes a marker to the shoes or attaches a red zip tie and now they’re part of the conversation."
